While appearing on a Sunday show, Anthony Fauci made yet another controversial COVID-19 health dictate that seems to go against the science: Children are not allowed to play together while unmasked unless they have all been vaccinated.
When asked about children playing together in groups, Fauci said “The children can clearly wind up getting infected,” and, therefore, When the children go out into the community, you want them to continue to wear masks when they’re interacting with groups or multiple households.”
Fauci did, however, offer a ray of hope for America’s children: They may be able to hit the jungle gym unmasked as soon as this summer. Apparently not wanting to allow too much hope, Fauci simply acknowledged, it is “conceivable that will be possible.” Should the current vaccination rate continue, he explained, then there is a “good degree of flexibility during the summer … with things like camps.”
Fauci did not note that children suffering serious symptoms from COVID-19 is incredibly rare. Children account for only 13% of COVID-19 cases, per the Mayo Clinic, and of those who do contract the China-originated virus, “Many of them have no symptoms,” reports Harvard Health. “Those that do get sick tend to experience milder symptoms such as low-grade fever, fatigue, and cough.”
The Biden regime appears to let the longest serving government employee make decisions for the entire country on a regular basis, in sharp contrast to the Trump administration, which repeatedly sidelined Fauci. National File reported:
“I got along with him fine, but I didn’t listen to him too much,” President Trump continued. “He said don’t close it up to China, and I did, very early. He said don’t close it up to Europe, you know we had the problem with Italy and France, I did, I closed it up to Europe very, very early. He said don’t wear masks, masks don’t work, they’re no good, no good.”
“The way I look at it, you saw him throw out the first pitch in Washington, right? He is a better pitcher than he is at what he does,” said President Trump, referencing an almost comically bad pitch from Fauci that went nowhere near its intended destination.
“But he’s a great promoter, but I got along with him,” joked the former President. “If you really look, I didn’t really listen to him too much because I was doing the opposite of what he was saying.”
President Trump also referred to Fauci as a “media creation,” something that seems apt considering he is now the subject of a disturbing children’s book.
