“That was the message from Dr. Anthony Fauci, who warned that as COVID-19 cases plateau around 50,000 to 65,000 a day in the U.S., it is “absolutely no time to declare victory.”
“When we see that leveling off at a high level, there’s always a surge of a risk back up. And in fact, unfortunately, that’s exactly what’s happening in Europe right now,” said the U.S.’ top infectious-diseases specialist in a Fox News on Sunday appearance.”(https://www.marketwatch.com/story/they-thought-that-they-were-home-free-and-they-werent-fauci-says-covid-19-resurgence-in-europe-is-a-warning-for-the-u-s-11615808573?siteid=yhoof2)
Also posted the same day:
“The United States’ top pandemic advisor said Sunday that authorities were considering cutting social distancing rules to three feet (one meter), a move that would change a key tenet of the global fight against Covid-19.
Anthony Fauci, a world-respected figure during the coronavirus crisis, said experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) were examining a Massachusetts study that found “no substantial difference” in Covid cases in schools observing six-foot and three-foot rules.
Asked on CNN’s “State of the Union” show whether that meant that a three-foot separation was sufficient, Fauci replied, “It does, indeed.””(https://www.yahoo.com/news/fauci-us-weighs-3-foot-144239918.html)
So, we are expected to be stuck in fear over the pandemic at the same time we are to change “social distancing” measures. I do not understand how the same guy can be saying both. I find it amusing. There is more to it, having schools open up and such. My kids school has been opened up all school year. All year, there may have been 5-7 cases in the school district. I just ask that people use common sense. I do not judge those who wear masks or those who don’t. I feel like this whole thing is a personal responsibility issue. If you feel you need to wear a mask, go ahead. If you don’t, go ahead.
I also have 1 opinion on masks. If a fart can go through boxers and jeans, and you still smell it through your mask, how effective is your mask against small particles? I say this because where I work, masks are mandatory. We get in trouble if we take our masks down to sip out coffee, but management walks around with chin-guards and it is okay. When some of our population asks about masks, I tell them the above joke, and it usually gets a laugh. Anyway, stay safe and stay prepared.
