Fauci insists that COVID-19 remains a dire ’emergency,’ even as infection and death rates decline

Fox News reported last week that the number of people dying from COVID-19 has declined sharply, dropping from 3,400 per day in mid-January to just current rates of roughly 700 per day or less.

But as the Washington Examiner reports, that great news doesn’t seem to be enough to stop America’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, from continuing to sound the alarm, especially as some high-profile Republicans speak out against the government’s aggressive push to vaccinate all adult Americans. 

“We are dealing with an emergency,” Fauci said during an interview on Friday on MSNBC, according to the Examiner. “How can anyone say that 567,000 dead Americans is not an emergency?”

Why is the vaccine being pushed?

Fauci’s warning came a day after Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) raised questions about COVID-19 vaccines during an interview with conservative talk radio personality Vicki McKenna.

“The science tells us that vaccines are 95% effective, so if you have a vaccine, quite honestly, what do you care if your neighbor has one or not?” he asked.

“Why is this big push to make sure everybody gets a vaccine?” the Wisconsin Republican continued. “I’m getting highly suspicious of what’s happening here.”

“Because it’s not a fully approved vaccine, I think we probably should have limited the distribution…to the vulnerable, to people that really aren’t very young,” Johnson added. “I see no reason to be pushing vaccines on people.”

Johnson doubles down

Later, Johnson tweeted out a statement building on his remarks about whether there is a need to push vaccine use on everybody, in direct contrast to Fauci’s insistence that all Americans who are able should get vaccinated in order to reach his ideal of “somewhere between 70[%] and 85%” of Americans vaccinated before herd immunity begins to kick in.

“Everyone should have the right to gather information, consult with their doctor and decide for themselves whether to get vaccinated,” Johnson said.

“I strongly supported Operation Warp Speed, and celebrated its astonishingly rapid success. Now I believe government’s role (and therefore my role) is to help ensure transparency so that people has as much information as possible to make an informed decision for themselves,” the senator added.

However, Johnson went on to ask whether it is appropriate to tell “people at a very low risk of suffering serious illness from Covid” to get vaccinated given that the “vaccine is being administered under an Emergency Use Authorization — in other words before it has been fully tested and approved.”

Johnson concluded his statement by pledging to “vigorously oppose any efforts by the government to utilize or impose vaccine passports.”

    1. not only sounds ,He is more than idiot,need one more vaccines,trple masks and kick his old a… from public talk and white house, old man have no more normal mind

    2. Fauci is an idiot to be honest with you. And to be frankly honest with you he’s not been fired because he’s part of the Democrats agenda to destroy the country

    1. if if if they are population control why are they trying to force vaccines to save us all? That goes against the plan……does not make sense!

      1. They can use whatever term they’d like, it’s still something new and untested being injected, by force (if you don’t have it then you can’t…) into your body. Since we really don’t know what’s in it or what it could do to us (suggest you read up on that) it could be good or bad for us, we don’t know.

    2. Yes — future but maybe not FAR. I read a frightening, very in-depth article that essentially said that with each jab and then each time one was exposed to the virus, the mRNA would go into bigger and bigger “overdrive.” Each time this happens, more and more of one’s natural immune system would be destroyed. I’m not potentially messing with my immune system.

  2. I think Dr. Fauci should be on a plan immediately headed for India. He loves outbreaks and from what I’m hearing, India is reporting 350,000 new infections per day. That’s heaven for Dr. Fauci.

  3. Dr. Fauci is correct when he says we aren’t safe yet. There are new strains & we have no confirmed information as to weather the 3 vaccines would effective against them. I personally think the only thing to do is to get vaccinated, wear masks in public & stay away from crowded conditions!

    1. That’s your opinion, as they are saying anyone who has gotten the Chinese virus, this vaccine which is NOT EVEN FDA approved , it’s more detrimental to us, so I won’t be getting the shot.

      1. Bingo.
        Also, it’s been “proven” that:
        1. Wearing a mask does nothing to stop the virus but it DOES make the wearer rebreathe his/her air over and over with increasing levels of CO2 and decreasing levels of O2 which is especially bad for young children and the elderly;
        2. The 6-foot “social distancing” is ineffective and arbitrary; and
        3. Stay inside…but sunshine kills the virus as does chlorine if you’re using a swimming pool, for example.
        The three main things we “had” to do are opposite of what is needed so why would one trust the judgment and “good intentions” of those requiring us to receive a “vaccine” (which would keep you from contracting the virus, instead of this jab which creates a memory in the immune system to attack hardener and harder leaving one’s natural immune system lesser– my quick take on a slightly more involved situation)? I’ll never get this by choice. I’m actually sad for the world as our only mistake is trusting others.

  4. The good doctor Fauci is in love with the lime light he has generated via his alleged medical expertise! It would seem difficult for him to back down now that he has become “the wonder child” of the medical establishment. The problem though is that his popularity is fading now as fast as it once rose!

  5. The only thing FECE! FAUCI IS GOOD AT IS GETTING PAID 432,331 DOLLARS A YEAR OFF OF THE TAXPayers! MASK! NO MASK! TWO MASKS! WHAT A HACK! OH! HIS LATEST STATEMENT: “YOU MIGHT HAVE TO GET ANOTHER SHOT IN 6 TO 18 MONTHS! OH! IS THAT BECAUSE YOUR BUDDY COMMIE! JOE LET ALL THE ILLEGals in that tested positive for the virus! & other diseases! YAP! DON’T LET A GOOD! PANDEMIC GO TO WASTE! WAKE THE HELL UP PEOPLE!

    1. Bingo.
