Fauci Backtracks As He Admits Second Coronavirus Wave May Never Happen – Calls Mask-Wearing Symbolic

Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, is now backtracking regarding a second wave of COVID-19, which he now admits may never happen. This is in stark contrast to the story he was pushing last month, when he steadfastly claimed the second wave was inevitable.

During an interview with CNN on Wednesday, Fauci changed his tune about the future of COVID-19, saying there may never be a second wave. “We often talk about the possibility of a second wave, or of an outbreak when you’re reopening,” Fauci said. “We don’t have to accept that as an inevitability. Particularly, when people start thinking about the fall. I want people to really appreciate that, it could happen, but it is not inevitable.”

Fauci went on to say that he is feeling more and more confidant with each passing day when it comes to America’s future in dealing with coronavirus, saying that the U.S. can avoid a second wave if we are able to have the “workforce, the system, and the will to do the kinds of things that are the clear and effective identification, isolation, and contact tracing.”

It should be noted that Fauci was saying the complete opposite thing just last month, when he told MSNBC that “It’s inevitable that the coronavirus will return next season. … When it does, how we handle it, will determine our fate.”

As for masks, Fauci is now admitting that they may actually not do anything at all, and instead described wearing them as more of a symbolic gesture. “I want to protect myself and protect others [by mask-wearing], and also because I want to make it be a symbol for people to see that that’s the kind of thing you should be doing,” he said. Fauci added that while wearing masks is not 100% effective, it is a gesture that shows “respect” for other people.

It’s becoming increasingly obvious to many Americans that we greatly overreacted to this pandemic, and much of this reaction can be traced back to doomsday-predictors like Fauci. Democrats then took his predictions and ran with them, in some states using them to take control of every aspect of our lives that they could.

With even Fauci backtracking, it’s time for us all to calm down and focus on reopening America. Enough is enough, and it’s time for this nonsense to come to an end.
