VIDEO: Fauci Admits the CDC Doesn’t Always ‘Follow the Science’

The CDC website claims the institution is still learning.

In a recent CNN interview, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted that the CDC doesn’t always rely on scientific data and evidence when making decisions on coronavirus guidelines. 

Fauci confessed after the anchor pressed him on why the Biden administration and public health organizations are still advising people who have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine not to travel, per The Federalist. 

“They’re being careful, understandably. They want to get science, they want to get data, and then when you don’t have the data and you don’t have the actual evidence, then you’ve got to make a judgement call,” Fauci said. 

So, are the most recent guidelines based on scientific facts or are a few people calling the shots on what the entire country can and can’t do? It’s unclear. 

Perhaps there should be a warning label: these guidelines are not based on science, rather they’re based on “judgement” of the people in charge.  

How confusing.

Fauci said the next concern the CDC will advise on is travel. 

“Obviously, the next one is going to be what you’re asking: What about travel? What about going out? What about getting a haircut? What about things like that? That’s all imminently going to be coming out,” he said. 

The CDC website claims the institution is still learning “how effective the vaccines are against variants of the virus that causes COVID-19,” “how well COVID-19 vaccines keep people from spreading the disease,” and “how long COVID-19 vaccines can protect people,” according to The Federalist.

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu

Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
