Note from all the experts: We don’t know much yet about how the virus is transmitted.
Podcast (16 minutes) “Open the Window: Talking about Airborne Transmission”
“Can the novel coronavirus be spread through the air? And if so, what can we do to make sure the air inside our homes and buildings is as clean as possible? Dr. Sanjay Gupta talks with Joseph Allen, Director of the Healthy Buildings program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, about the science behind airborne transmission.”
A very good, understandable and interesting, discussion by an expert from many angles, focusing on homes. But also discusses schools. Starts with tenement housing many years ago, which often lacked windows, and what was done to provide windows. I see many older apartment buildings, pre-1940, built with small “air vents” in the middle of the building providing ventilation.

Many thanks, Dr. Fauci, for speaking the truth for the past year, when there was so much dis-information. I encouraged everyone to listen to you. You can speak about what is important much better than I can write about it!
Biden is president and Dr. Fauci can speak directly to us from the White House. I don’t need to compile this Fauci Tracker any more!!
After Sparring With Trump, Fauci Said the Biden Administration Feels ‘Liberating’
I started this Tracker to let people know when he was speaking and post the videos here. He became the most trusted source for Covid info and spoke the truth. He was hard to find online. Dr. Fauci was restricted on where he could be interviewed.
He is an “insider” who is a Special Advisor the President Biden, does Covid vaccine research in his lab and is a practicing physician. Fauci explains topics so everyone can understand what is happening now and his forecasts for the future.
I will continue to post Fauci humorous videos. We all need something that makes us laugh!!! I will update my list below when posting these plus interviews that are well done, with experienced interviewers.

Ann O’Rourke has a science background (college, labs) plus has been a writer and publisher since 1992, and a self-employed real estate appraiser since 1986. I have two appraisal newsletters, where I started writing about Covid in February 2000.
My first job after college (studied biology and chemistry) in 1966 was in a toxicology lab. I worked in other labs plus worked for 5 years at a biotech company. In both science and appraising, you are trained to be objective and analyze the data. You look for the truth. That is also how I write about Covid-19.
I was compelled to write about Covid-19. I wanted to help people. I enjoy writing it but will be glad when the pandemic is over and I get my life back. I spent 2-3 days a week writing it plus writing my appraisal newsletters. Fortunately, I don’t have to do this any longer as scientists, and the CDC are free to speak.

Just for Fun!! Only 1 minute long!
Excerpt: Vocalist Scott Hoying of the a cappella band Pentatonix performed a brilliant parody of the song “Alexander Hamilton” from the incredibly popular musical Hamilton.
The parody substitutes the original lyrics with the name, accomplishments, and expertise of acclaimed immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. It also quite appropriately poses the question “why aren’t we listening to him?”. Hoying wrote the song along with comedy writers Brad Silnutzer and Joey Orton.
My name is Doctor Anthony Fauci and there are a million things I haven’t cured, but just you wait, just you wait. Just one quote from Parody of the Song ‘Alexander Hamilton’ With Dr. Fauci.
