In hindsight, most of us would probably agree that the months-long shutdown of this country was devasting and unnecessary.
We might concede that the initial two-week pause was needed to get a grip on things, but beyond that, it was just not worthwhile in the overall scheme of things.
The shutdown has caused thousands of small business owners to go bankrupt, as well as adding a mountain of debt for U.S. taxpayers both personally and for our government.
We have seen other nations that managed to deal with the pandemic without ever missing a day and numbers are on par or better than our numbers.
India is now seeing a massive surge of COVID, and Fauci believes that the only way to deal with the surge is to lock down the country.
He stated, “It just seems to me that, right now, India is in a very difficult and desperate situation.
“You should think of this, in some respects, like a war. The enemy is the virus. So, you know where the enemy is.
“So, I would make it almost like wartime because it’s an emergency.”
“We know that when China had this big explosion a year ago, they completely shut down. And if you shut down, you don’t have to shut down for six months.
“You can shut down temporarily to put an end to the cycle of transmission.”
That last statement is almost comical, however, as Fauci was among those pushing to keep our country closed when Trump was in office.
Funny how those narrative changes when Fauci likes the occupant of the White House.
