The following article, Dr. Fauci Not Advising Biden On COVID, Sticking With Trump Instead, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leading expert on infectious diseases in the United States recently stated that he’s not had any contact with Joe Biden or his coronavirus transition team and at this time sees no reason to quit President Trump’s team to join that effort.
Kind of a shocking statement from a guy that seems to have been at serious odds with the president on numerous occasions over the course of the year.
“I stay in my lane. I’m not a politician. I do public health things,” Fauci said in an interview on Thursday.
Since January, Fauci has served on President Donald Trump’s White House Coronavirus Task Force, a position that has frequently put him at odds with the president, who has sought to downplay the pandemic and focused instead on opening the economy.
“There’s absolutely no reason and no sense at all for me to stop doing something in the middle of a pandemic that is playing a major role in helping us get out of the pandemic,” Fauci said.
His advice for the apparent president-elect, he said, is “exactly the same” as what he is recommending now — social distancing, avoiding crowds, wearing masks, washing hands. “Public health principles don’t change from one month to another or from one administration to another.”
Could this be a sign that Fauci thinks Trump’s election complaints have merit? Probably not. It’s not really a sign of anything or than Fauci wanting to continue the work he is doing at the moment.
The bottom line, however, is that Fauci has been very wrong about a lot of things with coronavirus, which has really diminished public trust in the man and the guidelines he continues pushing for people and communities.
At this point, I don’t think many people care if he keeps doing what he’s doing now or quits completely and moves on to something else.
With a vaccine on the way that looks promising in the prevention of the virus, it really seems like it’s time to set aside the fear mongering and start thinking positive about the future and when we can get back to normal.
