Never let a crisis go to waste.

 

By David Sherfinski - The Washington Times - Friday, April 10, 2020
Dr. Anthony Fauci on Friday said it’s possible that Americans could eventually carry around certificates of immunity to the coronavirus once proper testing is widespread enough.
“That’s possible,” Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on CNN’s “New Day.”
“It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not,” he said. “This is something that’s being discussed. I think it might actually have some merit.”

Sen. Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Republican, has pitched the idea of an immunity registry to document people no longer believed to be at risk of infection.
Federal and state officials have said that antibody testing to try to determine whether someone had the coronavirus is one of the next major fronts in the battle against COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.
Dr. Fauci said that within about a week, there will be a “rather large number” of tests that are available but that validating them is key.
“Other countries have gotten burned by this,” he said. “They need to be validated. You need to make sure that they’re consistent and that they’re accurate.”
“It’s very likely that there are a large number of people out there that have been infected, have been asymptomatic, and did not know they were infected,” Dr. Fauci said. “If their antibody test is positive, one can formulate kind of strategies about whether or not they would be at risk or vulnerable to getting reinfected.”

 

‘How About No’: Rep. Amash Rips Fauci’s ‘Papers, Please’ Proposal

Independent Michigan Rep. Justin Amash ripped a proposal from top White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci that would require Americans to carry “certificates of immunity” to prove they don’t have coronavirus.
“So police and government officials can stop us wherever we go and demand to see our papers?” Amash tweeted. “How about no.”

Fauci said during a CNN interview Friday that Americans may soon be forced to carry papers to prove they are immune to the virus. (RELATED: FLASHBACK: Jan. 21: Fauci Says Coronavirus ‘Not A Major Threat’ To U.S.)
“You know, that’s possible. It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not — this is something that’s being discussed. I think it might actually have some merit under certain circumstances,” he said.
The federal government and state governments across the country have increasingly used the virus to clamp down on Americans’ civil liberties, ordering businesses and churches to close, and demanding that people stay in their homes. Attorney General Bill Barr sounded the alarm Thursday on the “draconian” coronavirus restrictions that have been put in place throughout the country, and called for them to be lifted soon.
“We have to be very careful to make sure this, that the draconian measures that are being adopted are fully justified, and there are not alternative ways of protecting people,” Barr told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.

Fauci lives in a bubble.

 

Appearing on NBC’s “Today” show, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a leading voice on the White House coronavirus task force, called the stunning loss of 10 million American jobs in two weeks “inconvenient,” maintaining that the economic hit is a mere side effect of necessary COVID-19 precautions.
“This is inconvenient from an economic and a personal standpoint, but we just have to do it,” Fauci told host Savannah Guthrie, backing what is effectively a national 30-day stay-at-home order.
Dr. Fauci then suggested an upcoming extension of the federal stay-at-home order until there is a vaccine, which could take well over a year or potentially years.
The shutdown “is our major weapon against this virus right now,” he said. “We don’t have a vaccine that’s deployable. This is the only thing we have.”
“We can get through it if everybody really leans forward and pushes on that,” Dr. Fauci added.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson questioned the wisdom of allowing medical professionals like Dr. Anthony Fauci to “run the country.”
During a Friday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” monologue that began by describing what has become the “largest and most disruptive response to a national emergency in our lifetimes,” Carlson shifted his attention to the “chief” expert behind “crafting national policy” when it comes to COVID-19 response, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
An “impressive person” who “certainly has the credentials for the job,” Fauci nevertheless has been wrong plenty of times, especially about the current pandemic. As a key example, Carlson played a January 21 clip of Dr. Fauci saying coronavirus was “not a major threat” to the U.S. public.
WATCH:
“To be clear, we’re not attacking Tony Fauci for getting it wrong on the coronavirus,” Carlson said after citing several other examples. “Most people did get it wrong, in and out of medicine.”
Yet, the Daily Caller co-founder noted: “Fewer than two months ago, Anthony Fauci told us not to worry about this epidemic. Now he’s demanding that the federal government quarantine the entire country.”
Carlson said that Fauci is now asking for “extreme measures” that could last many months until “there are no more coronavirus infections and no more deaths.”
“We can only guess at the social and economic destruction they might wreak, but it would be profound,” said the Fox News host before spending a few minutes deconstructing the efficacy of various models and predictions, some of which have been “terrible at best.”
“Here’s the problem with getting these numbers so horribly wrong,” said Carlson. “These numbers have driven massively disruptive government policy. Our entire national shutdown is based on the fear that coronavirus patients would overwhelm hospitals. And outside of parts of New York City, that has not happened.”
“More than ten million Americans have already lost their jobs. Imagine another year of this. That would be national suicide, and yet that’s what Anthony Fauci is suggesting, at least.”
Fauci is a “decent man” who “doesn’t want to hurt America,” Carlson contended, but he’s also “not an economist” or even “someone who fears being unemployed himself.” As such, he can look at things “through the narrow lens of his profession.”

After playing a clip of Dr. Fauci saying the shutdowns were “inconvenient from an economic and a personal standpoint,” Tucker concluded:
