You know, a lot of us conservatives said that the overall attitude of doom-and-gloom surrounding the coronavirus outbreak would drastically change once the election is over, especially if things go the way Democrats wanted them to go.
And it turns out we were right.
Remember how every single time a new study or report came out about COVID-19 that contained even the most minute crumb of positivity, Dr. Anthony Fauci would be there like a sad little rain cloud to douse out the hope and continue to fear monger?
Well, after new reports discovered that the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine is 90 percent effective at stopping infections of the illness, Fauci is suddenly a ray of sunshine, calling the findings “extraordinary.”
“The results are really quite good, I mean extraordinary,” said Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, according to the Washington Post.
The company is still awaiting data on safety, which it expects to be made available by the third week of November, according to a press release.
Fauci’s comments, per the outlet, come just two days after he told the American Medical Association (AMA) that once a vaccine is approved — and once a substantial portion of the population get it — the country could see some semblance of normalcy in the next year.
“If we get a reasonably effective, 75% effective, vaccine and a substantial proportion of the population takes the vaccine, I think we’ll be going in the right direction towards approaching some degree of normality as we head into 2021; in the second, third and fourth quarter of 2021,” the infectious disease expert said to Dr. James Madara, who is the CEO and executive vice president of the American Medical Association.
So Biden is called “president-elect” by the mainstream media and suddenly Grouchy Fauci turns his frown upside down? Hmm.
Granted, this vaccine news is very positive and is something that should be celebrated, but previous reports containing similar information were largely poo-pooed by the doctor who always seemed to be ready to rain on everyone’s parade.
Strange timing for a change in attitude, don’t you think?
