Dr. Fauci admits there is currently no “science” behind the continued lockdown: Watch the video
To date, at least 23 million Americans are now fully vaccinated against the deadly coronavirus. But health officials are still urging caution because there is still so much uncertainty about what is safe and what isn’t after you get your shots as people who get vaccinated are asked to keep wearing masks and continue social distancing. For example, three Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Norway, and Iceland suspended use of the AstraZeneca vaccine “over concerns about patients developing post-jab blood clots”
On March 8, the CDC released guidelines giving limited freedoms to people fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Now, many people are beginning to question the science behind the continued lockdown. “Follow the science” is the popular phrase that gets thrown around. However, there may not yet be any science to support the recent government decisions.
For the first time, Dr. Fauci acknowledged on Wednesday that people who are already vaccinated might not have data or “actual evidence” to use when making their decisions. Instead, Dr. Fauci said people who wish to travel after being vaccinated must “make a judgment call” about their plans.
In a rare moment of truth, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, admitted on CNN that there is no scientific reason why people who have had the COVID vaccine are still having their freedoms restricted.
CNN host John Berman asked Dr. Fauci:
“What’s the science behind not saying it’s safe for people who have been vaccinated – received two doses, to travel?”
Dr. Fauci replied that Americans will just have to trust the CDC judgment call saying:
“When you don’t have the data and you don’t have the actual evidence, you’ve got to make a judgment call.”
“They’re being careful, understandably,” Dr. Fauci said on CNN’s “New Day.” “They want to get science, they want to get data. And when you don’t have the data and you don’t have the actual evidence, you’ve got to make a judgment call.
“And I think that’s what you’re going to be seeing in the next weeks. You’re going to see little by little, more and more guidelines getting people to be more and more flexible.”
Dr. Fauci made the comments while advising people who want to travel for spring break to not let their guard down, and to continue to take care, even though the COVID-19 numbers are dropping and several states are moving to reopen businesses and drop mask mandates.
“Whenever you get a situation where you’re going to have people traveling to go to a separate location, where there’s going to be a congregate setting, a festive atmosphere, it’s totally understandable that people want to do that. But that’s something that we’ve got to be very careful of,” Fauci said. “We want people to have a good time on spring break, but don’t put your guard down completely. Just be prudent a bit longer. We are going in the right direction, we’re almost there.”
