Dr. Fauci On The Latest U.S. Covid-19 Response | MSNBC

    1. @Richard Moore that means 94% of that number of people had other serious health issues….
      6% had no other health issues…..
      Why do you resort to calling people names?

    2. @BathoryAriaaa This virus is spread through the air, not by fomites. While it is a good idea to keep your hands clean, it is masking that helps prevent the spread of Covid. And plenty of people, with more than adequate levels of vitamin D, have died of Covid. Correlation does not prove causality.

  1. Got the J&J Saturday, my arm hurt for 5 minutes after the shot, that’s the only side effect I’ve experienced.

    1. @individualist 1 well all see I guess I’m guessing the vaccinated people will be fine

    2. @Ver Coda funny another ago Pfizer was 1 dose…now it’s 2….then yearly boosters then quarterly etc. etc…..good luck!!

  2. it is true back in March 2020 as a ICU nurse I did not have but one mask (one surgical mask) that I had to reuse up to 2 WEEKS maybe at times longer… there simply were NOT enough for us as ICU nurses (we were given one N95 type mask and maybe one for a PAPR) but I had felt the lack of masks back then Dr Fauci is a good rep and probably great person he is doing his best and I am so glad he did not leave during that MF Trump (real scary time) because then there would have been that much less stability in our country

    1. @Maga Reducation That’s a good question? Control freaks just love control. Now they can tell you what to wear, what medical procedures you must have, when and where you can worship, when you can hug someone, when you can open your business, when and where you can travel and a whole lot more. What do you do with that? Why on Earth would you want to do that? Again, I think those are good questions. Do you deny that they are trying or have not already done this?

    2. @Good Citizen no. You sound paranoid.
      This is short lived. We look back on this and remember it as a headache but not some governmental power grab. I only hear that from the maga’s.

    1. @N 827 “As he turns 80, the medical expert’s decades of work on HIV will stand as his lasting contribution, whatever happens with Covid. Thanks in particular to developing an effective treatment for an often fatal auto-inflammatory disease of the blood vessels called vasculitis, Fauci was showered with accolades, handed plum posts, and earned the gratitude of many patients whose lives he saved.” The Guardian December 23, 2020.

    2. @CasinoVa Beach they don’t interact with anyone else. That’s why they don’t get sick at all for the most part. My dad used to be part of a Pennsylvanian Amish community and they never got illnesses.

    1. This past year the amount of standard flu in America decreased about 99%, because we wore enough masks and social distanced enough to practically eliminate it. Our mitigation was not enough for COVID, but it was enough for the standard flu. Would it be worth wearing a mask every fall and winter to save 30 to 60,000 American lives every year? Are the Asians more humane than we?

    2. @No Show Joe The death rate in the US from COVID is 1.5 to 2.0%. Another 15 to 20% percent have long haulers syndrome, much of which may be a permanent condition. No one knows what the rates will be for the ever emerging new variants.

    3. @Jug Ganautics That is completely false. Japan has had extremely stringent lockdown requirements for months now.

    4. @ruth depew You can’t seriously believe that obvious lie. Masks completely ended flu worldwide but covid blew up because not quite every one wore them?? And if the last few did wear them covid would be gone?? They obviously just counted every case of the flu as covid Google cdc what do my results mean? It says right there a positive test is triggered by a common cold or flu just like the creator of the pcr test said. They’re laughing at dummies like you who believe their ridiculous lies and support their own enslavement. Especially when it’s also public indisputable info that Fauci’s NIH funded wuhan lab 3.7 million for gain of function bat sars corona virus development . You guys take medical advice and experimental injections from the same guy who funded the development of the virus when 2 seconds of research could have told you that over a year ago. You gotta be real edu ma cated to believe all that and watch 16 hours a day of tv to not bee able to see the obvious

  3. At that time whit that info he had, he said that.
    Whit e new info about covid he change his point. ( that is very normal, as long as you honest about it). And he is always honest as long as I have bean following him.
    That’s how it works. It is like life it self. When you get older, you learn more things.
    And by then your point of view is changed because of the new info about the new Situation.

    1. @Duane Barry Data proves you a liar. Sweden has had far more deaths per capita, than any of the countries neighboring it.

    2. He should have known more from day one he supposed to be the top infectious……whatever you Want to call him hes not a doctor in my book. This man is nothing but a sorry excuse And a liar

    3. PFIZER’S CRIMINAL HISTORY SAYS IT ALL!
      taking this vaccine is a complete uninformed uneducated decision in my opinion. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE FIRST RNA (possible CHANGING) VACCINE EVER! So at this stage its not a vaccine. IT’S AN EXPERIMENTAL VACCINE AND WHOEVER GETS IT IS THE EXPERIMENT!
      LET’S NOT FORGET THE TUSKEGEE EXPERIMENT!!!And when the side effects(possible rare cancers)or neurological damage immediately (wich already happened) or few years later they going to tell you its because not everyone got vaccinated forcing it on others?. It’s absolutely sickening. The swine flu turned out to be harmless(was completely blown out of proportion but the  rushed to market vaccine permanently damaged 700 children in Europe alone .Its insane .And Pfizer ect .claim NO LIABILITY! THAT ALONE SHOULD BE A RED FLAG .
      As a Dr. You always got to ask yourself .Do the benefits outweigh the risk .In this case they should be aware the Risks outweigh the benefits by a long shot! Dr’s also swore an oath FIRST DO NO HARM! THEY ARE NOT HONORING THAT. In my opinion Dr’s are not educated about this at all and therefore putting people lives at risk !I believe this whole thing is a fraud for financial gain to the rich and powerful .If people  care to research vs. watching mainstream media they would realize we are not in a pandemic in the first place so No need to get vaccinated

    4. EEvery new product that comes out on the market is ALWAYS  a final experiment on the  public.FDA said PCB was safe and look at the damage done.FDA said Agent Orange was safe and still children come out crippled 50 YEARS LATER more than 2 million suffering back than alone  !FDA said VIOX was safe how many get killed by that before they took that off the market FDA said  Baby powder was safe….. THE LIST GOES ON .FOLLOW THE MONEY .

  4. Dr Fauci With respect how come you say we’ll reach some degree of normalcy and another day you say we gotta keep up with the health measures like what is the deal from the CDC and it’s crazy how they change everything up other wise thank you for what your doing god bless you

    1. @Sheila McGregor I’m in Australia. Life’s sort of normal where I am. We closed our State Borders a year ago. I’ve only spent 3 weeks locked down so far. It’s kind of weird being isolated from the World, but the news is so terrible it’s also weird to feel safe. We really want the vaccine so life can be fully normal again. It’s strange not having tourists & international students. That & I really want to go surfing in Bali. It’s flat here in Autumn…

    2. Some degree of normalcy The ETA for a degree of normalcy is directly proportional to the degree of peoples acceptance of the mitigation measures. If everyone would just follow the mitigation methods, things would be able to operate more normally sooner. It seems that you can tell a person that just can’t wait to have everything opened up and normal, merely by seeing whether that person is wearing a mask etc. It’s the people that refuse to wear a mask that are the most impatient. Asking Dr. Fauci when things are going to be back to normal is like asking him when people will wise up. So far, it looks like things will never get back to normal.

    1. The Biden administration has the borders wide open for the express purpose of spreading COVID. You all have fun now!

    1. Only for the people who do not care , respect nor follow the scientist that advises people of safety guidelines! People please !!!.

    2. @Thomas Williams No, it’s just that most people have realized that he’s a chronic liar, and has been for decades … except for the people who think MSNBC is “news”.

    3. @Thomas Williams He never talked adequately if any the possible risk/reward of vitamin d, zinc, green tea, hydroxy, ivermectin. Until vaccine just go home and hope for the best

  5. *Dr. Fauci:* Any PCR-positive with a CT over 35 is “just dead nucleotides, PERIOD.” – TWiV # 641
    *ALSO Dr. Fauci:* Let’s keep testing everyone with the PCR-positive cutoff at 40 CT, guaranteeing massive false-positives!

    1. @Money Pie “The problem with this test is that it says almost nothing about the amount of virus in the original sample”. Incorrect. From WHO “The cycle threshold (Ct) needed to detect virus is inversely proportional to the patient’s viral load.” Fauci is referring to replication competence which is the standard for determining whether or not there’s an actual ongoing infection. If it’s over 35 CT, there is zero chance that you actually have an ongoing infection (a *requirement* for “covid 19” diagnosis). But it gets worse… there’s only a small range, around 20CT, where replication competence is high. So the test is approx 75% false-positives from a diagnostic perspective with a positivity threshold of 40, which is the FDA standard. So, basically, you have no idea what you’re talking about and it’s really obvious. You’re a typical lefty who got a pat on the head because you successfully regurgitated the propaganda you were fed.

    2. ​@robotron17 First of all, I’m not a lefty. The fact that you think this is a left-vs-right issue really shows how stupid you are.

      Second, it’s obvious that the cycle count and viral count are inversely related, but because of the exponential nature of the replication, it’s hard to get an absolute number of viral particles from just the cycle count, because you don’t necessarily get a perfect doubling every cycle.

      Third, the PCR test measures the amount of genetic material from the original sample, not the amount of viable virus. This genetic material sometimes lasts longer than the virus.

      This is what Fauci was referring to. There is a genuine concern about positive PCR tests for people who aren’t infectious, but make no mistake: they have been infected by COVID-19.

      Finally, you make a rather elementary error in probability when you state “75% false positive”; this means that 75% of COVID-negative people will test positive, which means that the positivity rates reported by all of the states would be at least 75%. Try not to be a numbskull next time.

      It’s painful to watch you continue to pretend to know what you’re talking about.

    3. @Money Pie “This is what Fauci was referring to” Nope. He was referring to the well-established relationship between CT and replication competence, just as I said above. That is a fact. He even says it in the interview! Ha ha. You don’t know what you’re talking about, yet you continue to correct me?
      “this means that 75% of COVID-negative … blah blah blah”. You also have reading comprehension issues, as I clearly said “75% false-positives from a diagnostic perspective”. *Diagnostic accuracy* … as in, “do you actually have the infectious disease known as ‘covid 19’?” … is what I’m referring to. And that’s all that matters. Having a molecule from a broken SC2 virus is literally meaningless from the diagnostic perspective, as Kary Mullis pointed out. Detecting a molecule of SC2 doesn’t even mean that you necessarily had C19, since people who were infected are expelling non-viable virus fragments for MONTHS, which of course can be breathed in by anyone in the vicinity.

    4. @robotron17 I suggest you go on Wikipedia and look up “false positive rate.” It has a very well-defined statistical meaning, and you clearly don’t understand it. Your comment about “diagnostic accuracy” is just hogwash. I predict that you’ve confused P(B | A) with P(A | B), but that is your fault only and it really shows that you have no idea what you’re talking about.

      I have already addressed the rest of your ramblings before, and it appears you just don’t want to read. As for your new information about breathing in non-viable SARS-CoV-2 virus fragments for months, that’s just something you made up. Fauci is specifically talking about the fact that the tests pick up leftover genetic material after the person’s immune system has already eliminated the virus to an extent that they’re not infectious.

    5. @Money Pie You’re right, that’s why I added “from the diagnostic perspective” … as in, “positive PCR test result” does not necessarily equal “testing positive for covid.”, which is the common interpretation. “I have already addressed the rest of your ramblings” … oh like when you told me that Fauci wasn’t referring to replication competence, even though it’s literally not debatable that he was, and that you’re therefore demonstrably 100% wrong? Ha ha! Good stuff. I guess technically, you did “address” it … you were just wrong. You are a Dunning Kruger poster boy. Have a good one.

  6. 5 people in my class just said they were in so much pain after getting the Operation Warp Speed Vaccine created.

    1. Ask them 3 days later. It’s all gone. I took the Moderna vaccine on Friday, and yeah my arm hurt for two days. That’s all that happened.

      I’m sure the second dose will be worse, but right now, it doesn’t even hurt more than a hard workout. 3 days later, I don’t even feel it.

    2. @Money Pie Yea they said horrible pain in the legs, fever, but it went away after 4 days. They look awful. Cant believe you all are this crazy desperate to be an experiment like this.

    1. @Robert Rhinehart they did. So did Tampa after the Super Bowl. So did Panama City after spring break. I’m not sure how many times these people have to be embarrassingly wrong for us to use common sense

  7. How much longer will it take for Fauci’s sheep cult to wake up? The rest of us would like to move on.
