No health expert can justify the comment that Dr. Fauci just made.
It defies all logic.
Dr. Fauci completely lost his mind trying to defend his Democrat friends.
There are some facts about the coronavirus outbreak that can be debated.
But one fact has been known from the very beginning.
Elderly people with underlying health problems are most at risk when it comes to the coronavirus.
Andrew Cuomo’s response in New York was insane.
He stopped healthy people from interacting with each other and sent people with active coronavirus infections to nursing homes.
Andrew Cuomo had a policy that made it illegal for nursing homes to refuse to take in coronavirus patients.
There have been over 5,500 nursing home deaths in New York State alone.
Neither Florida, Texas nor Georgia have had that many deaths in total.
Yet the media is going on about how terrible their responses are to the outbreak.
Nearly 5% of nursing home residents in New York State died of the coronavirus.
Coronavirus has a mortality rate of 15% in those over the age of eighty so it’s not unreasonable to suppose that the majority of nursing home residents in New York got infected with the coronavirus.
In the middle of the pandemic, Dr. Fauci took the time to make sure that Chris Cuomo was okay to the point of phoning him almost every day.
“I have spoken to you, almost without exception, every day. And you have been calling me out of personal concern to make sure that I’m OK, that my wife was OK, my son was OK,” Cuomo said to Fauci on his primetime show in May.
Dr. Fauci’s friendship with the Cuomo family seems to be clouding his judgement since now he is claiming that New York did a marvelous job fighting the coronavirus.
“We’ve got to do the things that are very clear that we need to do to turn this around, remembering we can do it,” he said on PBS. “We know that when you do it properly, you bring down those cases. We’ve done it. We’ve done it in New York. New York got hit worse than any place in the world, and they did it correctly.”
The fact that New York City is the most densely populated city in America played a part in the coronavirus outbreak but that alone can’t account for the number of deaths in the city.
Andrew Cuomo’s policies put the most vulnerable people in the state at higher risk.
That’s the opposite of what America should be trying to accomplish.
Dr. Fauci looks like he is allowing friendship and politics to cloud his judgement.
