With each and every passing day, this whole coronavirus stuff gets more and more irritating. A report comes out saying this, that, or the other thing about the illness. The following day, another report comes out that contradicts the one released the day before and says that one is wrong.
Then, the day after that, a third report comes out and says both of the other two are wrong and posits yet another theory about the mess, which, of course, gets refuted the next week.
That’s been the pattern we’ve been going through ever since the beginning of the pandemic, which has led me to one simple conclusion:
The “experts” are either lying through their teeth, or they have no earthly idea what is actually going on.
Neither of these options provide a whole lot of comfort or peace of mind.
Earlier this week, the World Health Organization said that the asymptomatic spread of the coronavirus was actually very rare. The next day they walked back the statement. Now, Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the big dogs on Trump’s coronavirus task force, is saying that WHO was definitely wrong on this one.
Here’s more from the Washington Examiner:
“They walked that back, because there’s no evidence that that’s the case,” Fauci said on Good Morning America Wednesday, referring to the statement made by WHO epidemiologist Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove. “To make a statement that that’s a rare event was not correct.”
Kerkhove said Monday that “it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual.” She revised her statement on Tuesday via a Facebook Live event, when she said, “I was responding to a question at the press conference. I wasn’t stating a policy of WHO or anything like that. I was trying to articulate what we know, and in that, I used the phrase ‘very rare.’”
Kerkhove got a whole lot of flack for the comment above, because heaven forbid, someone, a health professional, say something about the virus that doesn’t fit in with the liberal news media’s narrative about the whole thing.
“The evidence that we have, given the percentage of people, which is about 25, 45% of the totality of infected people likely are without symptoms,” Fauci continued. “And we know from epidemiological studies that they can transmit to someone who is uninfected.”
In other words, folks, they really don’t know what they are talking about. Or, they do, and they are not giving us the full scoop, just like I mentioned earlier.
Either way, I’ve had about enough of this whole mess. I’m ready to just take my chances with this thing and at least try to live a normal life again, if that’s even possible at this point.
The real question is whether or not the left will allow that to happen, or will they try and take more power and freedom from us at the local and state level?
