It has been a very interesting and busy few weeks for Dr. Anthony Fauci. He is almost reaching the level of Biden in terms of being outspoken.
The scientist in the midst of the worst crisis in the history of the world said Monday that he cut a deal with the Chinese Communist Party for a “subcontract of a grant” investigating Coronaviruses in the communist country.
Fauci said “CoV-1 clearly originated in China, and we were fortunate to escape a major pandemic,” he said. “So, we really had to learn a lot more about the viruses that were there, about whether or not people were getting infected with that viruses.”
“So in a very minor collaboration as part of a subcontract of a grant we had a collaboration with some Chinese Comm — Chinese scientists. And — and what he conflated that is that, therefore, we were involved in creating the virus, which is the most ridiculous, majestic leap I’ve ever heard of.” He stated
This doctor’s expression is priceless because it shows his true feelings. Check out the clip below to see how he embodies the “Faucian slip”:
It is clear that Fauci’s collaboration with Chinese communist scientists entails more than just the detection of Coronaviruses and prevention of their recurrence, nor the review of gain-of-function research.
This article co-authored by Anthony Fauci and David M. Morens was published in Cell, and it is proving to be as in-depth as his public statements in the past.
“Living in greater harmony with nature will require changes in human behavior as well as other radical changes that may take decades to achieve: rebuilding the infrastructures of human existence, from cities to homes to workplaces, to water and sewer systems, to recreational and gatherings venues,” Fauci argues. “In such a transformation we will need to prioritize changes in those human behaviors that constitute risks for the emergence of infectious diseases.”
“Chief among them are reducing crowding at home, work, and in public places as well as minimizing environmental perturbations such as deforestation, intense urbanization, and intensive animal farming,” the article goes on. “Equally important are ending global poverty, improving sanitation and hygiene, and reducing unsafe exposure to animals, so that humans and potential human pathogens have limited opportunities for contact.”
As part of a virtual panel hosted by the University of Edinburgh, Fauci appeared in March 2021 alongside a longtime Chinese Communist Party member, Dr. Zhong Nanshan.
Despite the fact that the video was posted by the University of Edinburgh in early March, it has received relatively little attention, regardless of the fact that public health experts advocate for global mass vaccination programs and ‘stiff’ lockdowns lasting two to three years.
The legendary Chinese physician, who goes by the name of “China’s Fauci,” is a pulmonologist and a member of the Communist Party for many decades.
“Zhong has a long career in the Chinese Communist Party hierarchy, having served for years in delegatory positions in both the CCP’s National Congress and its National People’s Congress,” Just the News noted. “He has also served on numerous state research initiatives and is the founder of the state-funded Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory Diseases.”
“On the panel, Fauci and Zhong both expressed hopes that COVID-19 restrictions worldwide would continue well into the future,” the reported continued. “Zhong argued that ‘mass vaccinations’ are the ‘commonsense’ approach to engendering herd immunity in the population, but ‘to do that … will take about two or three years time with global collaboration.’”
As Dr. Fauci expressed earlier, his counterparts in the field of public health would echoed these sentiments during another exchange. In his response to a question posed by Dr. Anthony Fauci at the University of Edinburgh’s virtual panel, Dr. Zhong expressed his advocacy for a “strict” lockdown of schools.
“There are so many questions to consider,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “the one that I think is very important, that seems to dominate the discussion throughout the world, but certainly in the United States, relates to one of the slides that Dr. Zhong showed, will you have the balance between the economic considerations and the health considerations.”
“There’s a constant understandable need to open up the country and get back to normal,” Dr. Fauci said. “I keep getting asked that question every time I give an interview, every time I have a discussion, everyone wants to get back to some form of normality.”
“But if one does it too quickly, and as Dr. Zhong has mentioned what I often say, ‘jump the gun’ or do it too quickly, what happens is that you can get a resurgence of infection,” Dr. Fauci continued. “So the question is, what is the right balance of continuing to put stringent public health measures at the same time as you gradually open up the economy and open up the country.”
“It’s very risky. If you go too fast, you’ll have a setback,” Dr. Fauci went on. “If you go to slow, you have a lot of the suffering that Dr. Zhong spoke about, the mental health problems, the economic problems, it’s a very delicate balance that the students need to consider how difficult that type of balance is to maintain.”
In the same speech, Dr. Fauci reinforced the rationale he offered, stating that vaccines needed to combat the “variants” would force a need for continual lockdowns.
“It is important to realize,” Fauci claimed, “that variants arise, and if you suppress the virus in one country, but it is allowed to spread uninhibited in other areas of the world, sooner or later, the variants, the new lineages, the mutants, will come back and rekindle the outbreak, even in countries that seem to have it under control. So we still have a considerable amount of task in front of us.”
While the blue states put their economies on hold by imposing strict lockdowns, their measures proved ineffective in curbing the spread of the Coronavirus. Furthermore, they led to their economies tanking over the long run.
As Dr. Fauci and Dr. Zhong pointed out during their interview, a lockdown for extended periods of time is associated with detrimental psychological effects. The Chinese communist scientists have not given any clear indication if that is viewed as a bug or a feature.
