Has Dr. Fauci suggested a lockdown?
“How bad must things be for you to be in favor of a national lockdown?” Asked LaPook Fauci.
“They’re getting really, really bad,” Fauci said. “Firstly, the country is tired of restrictions. So we want to use public health measures, not to get in the way of opening up the economy, but to be a safe gateway to opening up the economy. So instead of having an opposition: open up the economy [to] get jobs back or shut down. No. Put ‘shut down’, away and say, ‘We will use public health measures to help us get to your place safely where we want to go. ”

The 30th of June: During testimony before the Senate, Dr. Fauci it very clear that our preventive approach should not be “all or nothing” and that socializing should not be off the table. “Outdoors is better than indoors,” he pointed out when Senator Mitt Romney asked him about the safest scenarios.
July 24: “I do not think it is necessary to do so. It may come to that, but right now I think that if you look at what is going on in some of the southern states, if you get cases resurfaced, you can put a pause on what you are doing, or maybe even take a step back.Let me give you an example.If some of the states or cities are in phase two of the Guidelines for Opening America, you may want to either pause or go back to phase one – or if you are in phase one, go back to the gateway component of the guideline so I’m not so sure you need to, suddenly everyone goes back to a complete lockdown.You know it could “You have to always leave it on the table, but I think we can probably get around what we’re doing now and put a lid on it and stop this by just being a little more careful.”
The 5th of August: “The country does not have to close completely to recover, according to Dr. Fauci. ” I think the strange binary approach is that either you are locked down or you let it all fly, there is a place in the middle when we can open the economy and still avoid this kind of waves that we see, ”he said. he.
October 1: “I want the opportunity to say this again, because unfortunately with the split that we are getting people to take it out of context: I think, and the overwhelming majority of my colleagues in public health, my colleagues who are involved in infectious diseases, feel that we should use public health deaths and public health activities to help us open the economy, “he said.” Do not interpret it as an obstacle to opening the economy, “he continued.” Because if you do things like we do have prescribed, namely a gateway to phase one, phase two, phase three without skipping these benchmarks that you need to look for, you can probably get people back to work, get the economy going. That’s what you do in the extremities. You either think it’s all shut down, or you know, caution against the wind and that we can not do it. It gets you in trouble. “
October 13: Fauci commented on Trump, who tweeted that lockdowns should end and that New York should open up. “Well, you know, New York, after they got a hit for really, really bad months and months ago, they did very well in keeping the level of infection, the positivity of the test down, they’re trying to open up like we ‘we try all to do, “Fauci said. “And they see an uptick in cases. But they have to do it… fool, as I say, which means making sure people do the things we’re talking about. If they do, they do not ‘They need to shut down completely.They need to gradually and carefully open up.And I think that’s what Governor Cuomo is trying to do … I just think we need to focus on the four or five basic things we need to do, “Fauci continued.
