Fauci Says No New Lockdowns

“I don’t think we’re gonna see lockdowns.”

  • On Sunday, Chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci was interviewed by ABC’s Jonathan Karl on “This Week.”
  • Karl asked Dr. Fauci if the U.S. would see a return to lockdowns or if the delta coronavirus variant surge merely represents a “temporary setback.”
  • “John, I don’t think we’re gonna see lockdowns,” said Fauci.
  • Referring to the percentage of Americans who have now been vaccinated, he added, “I think we have enough of the percentage of people in the country—not enough to crush the outbreak—but I believe enough to not allow us to get into the situation we were in last winter.”
  • Dr. Fauci has been criticized for “flip-flopping” on positions relating to the Covid-19 phenomena.
  • Drew Holden has chronicled a long list via tweets featuring “the various flip-flops of the CDC and Dr. Anthony Fauci over the last 18 months,” including position changes regarding the danger of the coronavirus, mask-wearing, and the virus origin.
  • One video compilation of Fauci’s COVID-related position reversals has been circulating on social media. See below.
