COVID-19: 'Dr. Fauci Was Wrong!'

Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

by Eric Holdeman / July 14, 2020

I would agree with the statement, "Dr. Fauci has been wrong." He has been "wrong" about a novel virus -- we are still trying to figure out how it works. Who is most vulnerable, how is it transmitted, are masks appropriate for everyone, what is the safest way to send children to school in a pandemic? 

What Dr. Fauci has not done is lie to the American public. There is a big difference between the science trying to catch up with a new disease and blatantly telling falsehoods in order to make it look like we are making progress against the virus. 

Maybe the scientific method is not fully understood. Remember when eggs were really bad for you? More research, more testing, more scientists weighing in on the topic and, lo and behold, I had two soft-boiled eggs for breakfast this morning. 

Japanese scientists used the best scientific knowledge they had available to build seawalls to counter any possible tsunami. Oops! Then they experienced a tsunami that was way bigger than their projections and the seawalls were ineffective. 

A couple new coronavirus "discoveries" that have yet to be confirmed broadly are that the transmission of the virus can happen not just by droplets, but also by aerosols in the air. Plus, the vascular nature of the disease in attacking organs in the body -- besides the lungs. 

Trust me -- we are still in the discovery phase of this disease. Putting people on their stomachs helps them breathe easier ... is just one technique helping very ill people survive the disease. 

Don't slam the medical community or Dr. Fauci for honest errors. They are doing the best job they can and they are not recommending the use of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for COVID-19 outside of a hospital setting due to extreme side effects.
