Dr. Anthony Fauci advised a former Obama administration Health and Human Services Secretary named Sylvia Burwell not to wear a mask in an email on February 5, 2020. Fauci said that “The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus.” Of course, Fauci later changed his tune in public and advised the American people to wear dehumanizing facemasks.
“Sylvia: Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection. The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you. I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a very low risk location. Your instincts are correct, money is best spent on medical countermeasures such as diagnostics and vaccines. Safe travels,” Dr. Fauci wrote.
Fauci initially told people not to wear masks before changing his stance on the issue, and American children have been wearing the slave masks in large part due to Fauci’s advice. We now know that Fauci does not actually believe in the merit of masks, and he was willing to tell a well-connected former Obama administration apparatchik one thing while later telling America the exact opposite. Here is evidence of Fauci’s initial anti-mask stance:
