Dr. Anthony Fauci, who currently serves as the White House chief medical examiner, has finally come out and admitted that it is inevitable that “just about everybody” will end up getting the omicron variant of the coronavirus.
And yes, that includes the vaccinated too.
Which really begs the question of why this vaccine is continuing to be pushed on people? If you can still get the illness and unvaccinated people are getting mild cases, what’s the point of the jab?
“Omicron, with its extraordinary, unprecedented degree of efficiency of transmissibility, will, ultimately, find just about everybody,” Fauci stated to The Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS). “Those who have been vaccinated, and vaccinated and boosted, would get exposed. Some, maybe a lot of them, will get infected but will very likely, with some exceptions, do reasonably well in the sense of not having hospitalization and death.”
According to the doctor, some who got the vaccine “are going to die,” but those who haven’t taken it are going to get it worse.
We’ll just have to see about that, right?
“Unfortunately, those who are still unvaccinated are going to get the brunt of the severe aspect of this, and although it is less severe on a case-by-case basis, when you quantitatively have so many people who are infected, a fraction of them, even if it’s a small fraction, are going to get seriously ill and are going to die, and that’s the reason why it will challenge our health system,” he continued.
Fauci had once believed America under Trump could shut down to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic to the point it could remain manageable.
The lockdowns did not have the desired effect and even under the year of vaccinations with President Joe Biden, more Americans have died than under Trump, as Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., pointed out to Fauci during Tuesday’s Senate Health Committee hearing.
“It’s hard to process what’s actually happening right now, which is most people are going to get COVID,” Fauci went on to say on Tuesday, echoing his comments made to the CSIS.
Now, Fauci is talking about moving forward with COVID-19 by adopting herd immunity — a suggestion Trump was once criticized for in the media — and therapeutics. Trump had stressed those in his daily coronavirus press briefings, while the Biden administration does not conduct those and leans more heavily on vaccines and mandates.
“As Omicron goes up and comes down, I do hope that we will see a situation where there’ll be enough protection in community, enough drugs available, so that when someone does get infected and is in a high-risk group, it will be very easy to treat that person — be that with Paxlovid or a monoclonal antibody or whatever the drugs are — that we have a combination of good, basic background immunity together with the ability to treat someone who is at risk,” the White House chief medical adviser said.
