The President’s Chief Medical Advisor, Dr. Fauci, consistently appears on ABC’s “This Week” program to discuss the current affairs of COVID-19. In usual fashion the doctor will move the conversion to vaccination. Fauci appeared on ABC yet again over the weekend, and by the volition of his own words the fear-mongering was obvious to those with an iota of common-sense.
“Fewer than 1 in 5 children have received the vaccine so far, what’s your message to reluctant parents?” The show’s host asked.
Fauci responded, “Well, my message to parents is: If your child is of 5 years of age or older, please get them vaccinated, we need to protect the children. This idea that children are not vulnerable at all is not so, George. I mean, certainly statistically, children do not get as severe disease as the adults, particularly the elderly. But if you look at the number of cases of children, now well over 2-million children from 5 to 11 have been infected, there’ve been over 8000 to 9000 hospitalizations and well over 100 deaths. [emphasis added]”
Fauci’s boogey-man brainchild is defeated after an examination of the statistics he’s put forth. He’s cited that over 2-million children have been infected with the virus. However, infection is but a speck as relevant compared to the associated death rate. Herein, is where Fauci exposes himself–by admitting the number of deaths are as low as they are. Using Fauci’s numbers: 200 deaths (doubling his original figure of “well over 100” to be gracious to the man) out of 2,000,000 infections is a 0.01 death rate for those between the ages of 5 and 11. The risk of COVID death is minuscule.
Others have joined the doctor’s superstition, like NYC mayor Bill de Blasio, who’s recently mandated 5 year olds show proof-of-vaccination to enter buildings for dining and entertainment.
The American Academy of Pediatrics finds the death rate of children infected with COVID-19 is between 0.00 and 0.03, and they cite more cases than Fauci. Over 7-million.
Even if we’re charitable and accept the highest end of this interval Fauci’s case is laughable at best.
The host continues after Fauci’s answer, “What signs of hope can you point to this holiday season?“. Fauci moves the conversation towards vaccination, “Well George, we have the tools to protect ourselves, and that’s the thing we keep saying over and over again. We have 60-million people in this country that are not yet vaccinated who are eligible to be vaccinated. And those who are–luckily, did get vaccinated, now we have about 100-million of them who are eligible for boosters. So, on that framework alone, just vaccination, we can go a long way … But the other thing we can do, is to be prudent. Namely, follow the CDC guidelines that when you are in an indoor congregate setting and you do not know the vaccination status of the people around you, where a mask … [emphasis added]”
Fauci is fervent to impose Safeism. A new study (headed by CDC scientists) was published last month suggesting there isn’t a significant difference of transmission between the vaccinated and unvaccinated in confined spaces. Indeed, some data suggest vaccinated individuals have lower COVID-19 transmission–But the fact of the matter is this phenomena isn’t settled, and suggesting Americans to mask up at Christmas around their family and friends (while there’s a vaccine available) is making a mountain out of a mole-hill.
If Americans and children are to wear PPE for a risk of this size, they might as well walk the earth dressed in a hazmat-suit, equipped with the finest oxygen-tank one can buy. At least the logic will be consistent at that point.
