With the White House narrative at odds with facts and data, health experts including Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci have been silenced. Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a professor of medicine at George Washington University, told CNN it’s because “they tell the truth. And the truth is that the pandemic is still very, very active in the United States and that we’re not getting back to normal and there are difficult things that the public has to do,” Reiner said.
Fauci recently warned in an episode of the US Department of Health and Human Services’ podcast “Learning Curve” about an “anti-science bias” contributing to case spikes in the country.
“One of the problems we face in the United States is that unfortunately, there is a combination of an anti-science bias that people are — for reasons that sometimes are, you know, inconceivable and not understandable — they just don’t believe science and they don’t believe authority.” I wonder who he is talking about?
“So when they see someone up in the White House, which has an air of authority to it, who’s talking about science, that there are some people who just don’t believe that — and that’s unfortunate because, you know, science is truth.”
“We’ve never finished the first wave,” Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine, said of spikes in new cases in South Carolina, Florida, Texas and Arizona. “We didn’t complete that social distancing period that we needed to do.”
Models showed states needed to extend stay-at-home orders through May, according to Hotez.
“Things opened up prematurely,” he said.
