It’s amazing what can happen when an election is on the horizon.
During an appearance on PBS, Dr. Anthony Fauci, little Tony who couldn’t make up his mind on whether masks were worth using or not two years ago, essentially said that while the virus is still with us, the pandemic, oops, the pandemic is over.
“Here we are. It’s the end of April. It’s the spring of 2022. How close are we to the end of the pandemic?” Woodruff asked.
“We are certainly, right now, in this country out of the pandemic phase,” Fauci replied. “Namely, we don’t have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths. We are at a low level right now.”
But the health adviser warned: “We’re not going to eradicate this virus.”
Somehow the virus eradicated the flu, though.
While the US is no longer in the “pandemic phase,” Fauci said there is still a global crisis.
“This is not going to be eradicated, and it’s not going to be eliminated,” he told ABC’s “This Week.” “And what’s going to happen is that we’re going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take.”
