This [coronavirus] is not a major threat for the people in United States, and this is not something the citizens should be worried about, Dr. Fauci said on Jan. 21
So what happens when your experts give you their expertise, and it ends up being wrong? With tens of thousands of people dying of coronavirus around the world, our leaders are turning to experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci to guide them in their decision making process. This is not to blame the world renowned doctor. However, maybe we should question the reliability of the underlying data, especially if the data came from China.
On January 21, 2020, when asked about how deadly the virus is and if Americans should be worried: Dr. Fauci responded: “This is not a major threat for the people in United States, and this is not something the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.”

In another unearthed audio from January 26, Dr. Fauci assured Americans that the coronavirus is nothing to worry about. “The American people should not be worried or frightened by this. It’s a very, very low risk to the United States,” Dr. Fauci said on The CATS Roundtable John Catsimatidis. “It isn’t something that the American public needs to worry about or be frightened about.” Five days later, U.S. President Trump issued a travel ban.
