The Wuhan coronavirus remains the most pressing crisis around the globe.
In America, Dr. Anthony Fauci has been coordinating the White House’s response on the pandemic.
But Dr. Fauci is coming under fire for one startling statement.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is an experienced physician who has worked for both Democrat and Republican presidents.
However, Dr. Ron Paul, a libertarian congressman from Texas who ran for president twice, believes that Fauci should be removed from his post.
Paul and other critics have noted that Fauci has gone out of his way to promote doomsday scenarios as well as keeping the country on lockdown indefinitely.
In one interview, Fauci suggested keeping quarantine orders in place until there are “no new cases” of the coronavirus.
Fauci Should Be Fired
If Not By Trump, Then By The American People
— Ron Paul (@RonPaul) April 9, 2020
The idea of keeping the country on lockdown until the outbreak is completely eradicated or until a vaccine is created – which could take up to 18 months – is infeasible.
And the possibility of people needing a stamp of approval to go about their lives is Orwellian to say the least.
Fauci also suggested that as many as 240,000 American could die as a result of the coronavirus, but was hesitant to speak on the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine which has been touted by some physicians as an effective treatment.
And, as Paul pointed out, Fauci has ties to the Centers for Disease Control, which has given out conflicting information on the illness and had been burning money for years to fight issues outside its purview such as racism, obesity, gun control, and even transgender beauty pageants.
Thus far, Donald Trump has a relatively good working relationship with Fauci and it doesn’t appear like any changes will be made.
The worst-case scenarios have been significantly downgraded and it seems that America may have weathered the rockiest part of the storm.
But if Fauci and other health officials try to keep Americans cooped up into May, civil unrest will soar.
People are itching to get back to work and resume their regular lives.
One or two doctors won’t stand in the way of that.
