Dr. Fauci: On Second Thought – Risk of Spreading COVID-19 Outdoors Is Low

Fight tech tyranny. Join Dan on Parler @dbongino.

After mass hysteria inspired policies that confined hundreds of millions of Americans to their homes for months last year, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now realizing that on second thought, actually there’s no real risk of spreading COVID-19 outdoors.

That sure is great to know now, isn’t it?

While science is always evolving, one must be skeptical that this is something they’re only now learning. After all, we didn’t hear a peep from our scientist overlords when tens of millions of people were crowding the streets to protest following George Floyd’s death. Either they knew there was no real risk of the virus spreading this way, or they’re just political hacks who didn’t want to speak out against a cause their favor (to be fair, each scenario is equally likely).

According to Fox News:

Dr. Fauci believes the CDC will soon provide updated COVID-19 guidance on using face masks in outdoor settings, calling it “common sense” to do so.

Fauci said that the risk for people engaging in outdoor activities is “miniscule,” especially for vaccinated individuals.

“What I believe you’re going to be hearing, what the country is going to be hearing soon, is updated guidelines from the CDC,” Fauci told ABC News’ “This Week.” “The CDC is a science-based organization. They don’t want to make any guidelines unless they look at the data and the data backs it up.”

“But when you look around at the common sense situation, the risk is really low, especially if you’re vaccinated,” he said.

Guidance on outdoor mask wearing is expected to be relaxed as early as tomorrow.

I’m sure that due to massive job losses, phycological damage, drug and alcohol abuse, and other harms spurred by “shelter at home” orders, Fauci will at least have the decency to give the American public a brief apology.

Just kidding!
