Fauci on Current Status of Covid Infections

Recorded 10-8-20 8 min. 19 sec. video. The interviewer asks Fauci the very tough current questions about infections in the NFL, Trump, and the White House, surges in some states, etc. Fauci does not “point the finger” at anyone. Instead, he repeats what the science says about what should be done. Listen to the video or read the transcript. Fauci on Current Status of Covid Infections

Excerpts: “…obviously, this is a formidable virus that has an extraordinary capability of being transmitted from person to person. But the kind of outbreak that we had in the United States and that many other countries have had does not necessarily have to have been inevitable.”

“I have said (this) multiple times, and I have no problem repeating it now, that what you should do to avoid acquisition and transmission of infection is the universals wearing of masks, avoiding close contact, avoiding crowded situations, trying to do things outdoors much more than indoors, and washing your hands regularly.”

COVID-19 Public Health and Scientific Challenges by Fauci

On 9-10-20 Dr. Fauci spoke at a live webinar, with over 6,000 virtual attendees and many questions.

Harvard Medical Grand Rounds Webinar — Dr. Fauci’s lecture, “COVID-19—Public Health and Scientific Challenges” was 1 hour and 6 minutes. Started with an introduction, then Fauci started speaking at 4 minutes. Click here to watch.

This 1-hour webinar covered many of the topics I discuss in this newsletter. Fauci was very understandable, of course. The three panelists were good also, only occasionally using technical terminology. 

Often, the media only shows short clips  of what he said. At this event he has lots more time plus good slides to illustrate what he is saying. Using very good slides made a big difference

The Fauci Tracker

When people ask me about the best source of scientific information on Covid, I always say Dr. Fauci. That’s why I started this Fauci Tracker!! He is a very reliable source for the “big picture” including forecasts, but interviews with him can be hard to find. He is an “insider” who is on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, plus does Covid vaccine research in his lab. Fauci explains topics so everyone can understand what is happening now and his forecasts for the future.

In this blog, I post information on Dr. Fauci’s most recent “sightings” on youtube, Facebook live, podcasts, etc. plus written interview s, so you can listen to the full version of what he said. I post the interviews that are well done, with experienced interviewers.

My comments:

I have watched Fauci on video many times. This one was different, as he was very outspoken with his opinions, including discussing Trump. Don’t Mess With Dr. Fauci! In response, of course, Trump had to say mostly incorrect negative comments about Fauci. But, he did say that Fauci was a nice person.

The interview is very personal and includes his wife, who seldom speaks out. He and his wife have had death threats and his adult children have been harassed.

Why is Fauci discussing “politics” after 40 years of a “no-politics” policy? He does not register to vote with any party. Looks like it was the use of a video clip in a Trump ad, taken out of context, implying that he supported what Trump was doing.

I seldom watch network tv but kept my cable subscription. I was thinking about canceling it last week as I only use it a few times a month. But, a friend called me Sunday night and said Fauci was on the 60 Minutes tv show. My TIVO, which I got in 2004, is set up to record it just in case there is something I want to see. Or, if my wifi goes down with no Amazon Prime or Netflix…

Because of the upcoming election in two weeks, I assume, I was seriously considering speaking out about politics. But, many of my readers are very conservative and I did not want to alienate them. Since March I have been telling them the scientific truth about Covid. I write only about the Science side of the pandemic. All my writing is No Politics Allowed. They know my position: social liberal and fiscal conservative.

Fortunately, Fauci said what I wanted to say, to a much, much bigger audience. Thanks, Dr. Anthony Fauci!!!
