This is not right.
Dr. Anthony Fauci who is a key member of the coronavirus task force recently stated that he and other health experts downplayed the true effectiveness of face masks.
He stated there was a concern of Americans buying up all the masks leaving none for health care workers.
Fauci said, “[We] were concerned the public health community, and many people were saying this, we’re concerned that it was at a time when personal protective equipment, including the N95 masks and the surgical masks, were in very short supply.”
“We wanted to make sure that the people, namely the health care workers, who were brave enough to put themselves in a harm way, to take care of people who you know were infected with the coronavirus and the danger of them getting infected.”
Previously, Fauci stated that only people who were sick should be wearing face masks, now he is a staunch advocate of the masks.
“Masks are not 100 percent protective. However, they certainly are better than not wearing a mask. Both to prevent you, if you happen to be a person who maybe feels well, but has an asymptomatic infection that you don’t even know about, to prevent you from infecting someone else, but also it can protect you a certain degree, not a hundred percent, in protecting you from getting infected from someone who, either is breathing, or coughing, or sneezing, or singing or whatever it is in which the droplets or the aerosols go out. So masks work.”
Is there any point in believing him now after his lies? Read the full story here.
