Big Pharma’s Covid-19 Anthony Fauci finally seems to be Out, Common Sense Might Return, Herland Report

Anthony Fauci finally seems to be Out, Common Sense Might Return

 

Herland Report: Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, published a letter on March 26, 2020 in the New England Journal of Medicine.

When Anthony Fauci demanded a lockdown of the economy for an indefinite period he actually seemed oblivious to the havoc it would wreak on the economy and on people’s lives.

In the article, he states that COVID-19 may turn out to be comparable in numbers of deaths to a seasonal flu or similar to two relatively minor flu pandemics in 1957 and 1968, PatriotFire writes.

The regular flu has killed up to 80,000 per year in the US and kills about 500,000 globally every year. The two flu pandemics he cited, the Asian flu in 1957 and the Hong Kong flu of 1968 each are estimated to have killed about 100,000 in the US and about a million globally.

If Covid-19 is comparable to an Influenza, the pandemic scare that now is tearing the West to pieces clearly is driven by completely other forces than the mainstream media projects.

Read Dr. Ron Paul at The Liberty Report: These days it seems there is not much good news out there. People are still panicked over the coronavirus, governments are still trampling civil liberties in the name of fighting the virus, the economy –already teetering on the edge of collapse – has been kicked to the ground by what history may record as one of the worst man-made disasters of all time: shutting down the country to fight a cold virus.

That’s why we’ll take good news wherever we can get it, and President Trump’s hiring of Dr. Scott Atlas to his coronavirus task force may just be that good news we need.

As the media has reported, President Trump has sidelined headline-hogging Anthony Fauci in favor of Dr. Scott Atlas, the former Stanford University Medical Center chief of neuroradiology.

Dr. Scott Atlas is not only a former top physician and hospital administrator: as a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution he also understands the policy implications of locking a country down.

Recall, Fauci was the “expert” who told us a few months ago that we would never be able to shake hands again.

Recall, Fauci was the “expert” who told us a few months ago that we would never be able to shake hands again.

Fauci’s advice, forecasts, and assessments proved to be wildly wrong, contradictory, and just plain bizarre: Don’t wear a mask! You must wear a mask. Masks are important as symbols.

Put on goggles. Stay home! Churches must be severely restricted but Black Lives Matter marches and encounters with strangers met over the Internet are perfectly fine.

When Anthony Fauci demanded a lockdown of the economy for an indefinite period he actually seemed oblivious to the havoc it would wreak on the economy and on people’s lives.

People like Fauci and others who demanded lockdowns and stay-at-home orders were still collecting their paychecks, so what did they care about anyone else?

On April 22, Dr. Atlas wrote an op-ed in The Hill titled, “The data is in — stop the panic and end the total isolation.”

In the article he made five main points that are as true today as when he wrote them: an overwhelming majority of people are at no risk of dying from Covid; protecting older people prevents hospital overcrowding; locking down a population actually prevents the herd immunity necessary to defeat the virus; people are dying because they are not being treated for non-Covid illnesses; we know what part of the population is at risk and we can protect them.

Dr. Scott Atlas is not only a former top physician and hospital administrator: as a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution he also understands the policy implications of locking a country down.

Imagine how many thousands of lives could have been saved had the Administration listened to Dr. Atlas back in April. CDC Director Robert Redfield admitted last month that lockdowns were killing more Americans than Covid.

“First do no harm” was thrown out the window and nearly six months of wrong-headed policy has done perhaps irreparable harm to the country.

South Dakota and Sweden did virtually nothing to lock down or restrict their populations and they actually fared better than lockdown states in the US. They had lower death rates, their hospitals were never over-run with Covid patients, and they have an economy to go back to.

We very much hope that Dr. Atlas will not “moderate” his message to please the blob in Washington. Trump’s Covid policies to this point have caused more harm than good. With Fauci out of the driver’s seat we finally have a chance of turning things around.
