Fauci Attacks Choirs, Implies Worship Is Less Important Than Protests

Dr. Fauci gives his thoughts on another potential lockdown

Responding to questioning by a House Democrat, Fauci says the scale of the US outbreak is the result of multiple factors, including some states opened too quickly, disregarding federal guidelines.

"You should stay away from crowds, no matter where the crowds are", Fauci said during the combative parley.

During a House hearing of the committee investigating the Trump administration's pandemic response, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) asked Fauci, "Do protests increase the spread of the virus?"

This week, Trump, who has often bristled against scientists' advice on responding to the pandemic, bemoaned the degree to which Fauci is admired, saying "nobody likes me".

"So this is why I keep coming back for the overall social [well-being] of individuals, is let's all work together and find out how we can find common ground to get these schools open in a way that people are comfortable and their safe". "You made comments on dating, baseball, and everything you can imagine".

"Should we limit the protesting?"

Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein's emails have been made public
Of all Epstein's victims, it's the allegations of Virginia Roberts Giuffre that has had the most fall out around the world. But among the hundred's of pages of unsealed records is an email between Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein from 2015.

Jordan questioned, "Is there a world where the Constitution says you can favor one First Amendment liberty - protesting - over another - practicing your faith?" "I don't have any horse in the game, one way or the other". Jordan compared such a move to closing houses of worship and businesses during shutdowns and suggested Fauci unequally judged certain activities over others as worthy of government intervention. "I'm not favouring anybody over anybody", Fauci answered. "When you're in a crowd, particularly if you're not wearing a mask, that induces the spread".

Dr. Anthony Fauci says Americans who want the best chance to avoid coronavirus should strap on some goggles moving forward. I'm just asking your position on the protests.

Fauci, who made headlines in March by describing US testing efforts as a failing, also resisted efforts by Democrats to criticize the Trump administration response to the virus, frequently handing off questions about the current state of testing and other matters to his fellow panellists.

Headed by Clyburn, the subcommittee was created this year to monitor the trillions of dollars approved by Congress to help the United States weather the health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fauci said his optimism is based on results from earlier phases of the Moderna trial that "clearly showed that individuals who were vaccinated mounted a neutralizing antibody response that was at least comparable, and in many respects, than what we see in convalescent [blood] serum".
