Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top leading expert on infectious diseases, recently stated that he’s most looking forward to having a beer and a burger at a restaurant once the pandemic comes to an end.
Thing is, he could totally have a beer and a burger right now if he’d let restaurants open up. Especially since the lockdown isn’t doing much to stop the spread of the illness.
Just a thought.
Dr. Anthony Fauci made the comments during a recent radio interview with L.A.-area DJ Maggie McKay of 94.7 The Wave, explaining that he and his wife Christine Grady haven’t had a traditional sit-down meal at a restaurant since February. Instead, the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases said he and his spouse have turned to takeout for a quick meal.
“What is the first thing you’re going to do when this whole thing is over?” McKay asked, alluding to the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19.
“Wow,” Fauci said. “It’s a simple thing, but just to go to a restaurant or to a bar where I get home late at night from work. My wife works here at the NIH with me and we almost every night go home together. It’s usually pretty late, I think we’re both kind of in the category of workaholics.”
“And what I used to like a lot was, rather than go home and cook, to just on the way home stop at a favorite small restaurant or a bar and sit there and have a beer and a hamburger or something and just relax,” he shared.
The rest of us would also like to partake in a little relaxation outside of work by visiting an eating establishment. How about, since the virus has a survival rate of 99 percent, we just, oh, I don’t know, throw out the lockdowns and get back to living life as usual?
This whole thing has been a farce. It’s destroying the economy. If we want to have a society after the pandemic is over, I think it’s time to get back to life as it once was.
Too bad Fauci seems to be totally on board with making us stay the current course.
