Dr. Anthony Fauci now says that a second wave of COVID-19 may not even happen and that wearing a mask is largely symbolic at this point.

In a Wednesday interview with CNN’s “Newsroom,” Fauci — member of the White House’s coronavirus task force — said that a second COVID-19 wave is not necessarily inevitable.

“We often talk about the the possibility of a second wave, or of an outbreak when you’re reopening,” Fauci explained. “We don’t have to accept that as an inevitability.”

“Particularly,” he continued, “when people start thinking about the fall. I want people to really appreciate that, it could happen, but it is not inevitable.”

Fauci admitted that he is beginning to feel more and more optimistic as days go by, and insists that the U.S.’s expanded capability for testing is bolstering the COVID-19 response.

He pointed out that a second wave is entirely preventable if the U.S. is able to have the “workforce, the system, and the will to do the kinds of things that are the clear and effective identification, isolation, and contact tracing.”

In April, however, Fauci insisted that second wave of coronavirus was inevitable.

During an interview with MSNBC, he said, “It’s inevitable that the coronavirus will return next season. … When it does, how we handle it, will determine our fate.”

Fauci also said that Americans should wear face masks in public to protect themselves — but also to get into good practices.

“I want to protect myself and protect others [by mask-wearing], and also because I want to make it be a symbol for people to see that that’s the kind of thing you should be doing,” he added.

During the interview, the infections diseases expert also admitted that wearing a mask is not 100% effective, but says that it is a gesture that shows “respect” for other people.

    Dr Falsie is a jackass, I’d rather listen to Homer Simpson.

    How many 180s are these people going to do ???? At first the virus was a big nothing – then it was a pandemic – then we went into gestapo lockdown without true justification – then if you go outside you MUST wear a mask or you can’t get into stores – then we can’t assemble with more than 5-10 people being 6 ft apart – and then be ready for the 2nd wave, it is going to be worse than the first wave – and still we have a handful of demoCOMMIE governors who think they are dictators with one even threatening his own law enforcement agencies that it will be a felony even for them if they don’t follow his UnConstitutional illegal edicts. Now it is the democommies plan to keep the economy at a standstill until it gets closer to November. I firmly believe this was a China/democrat joint venture to destroy the economy that we regained after the 8 years that odumbo and his criminals drove into the toilet and President Trump and his staff brought back to life.

      Gerry – You are right on the money. I’ve always thought the Democrats/Socialists coordinated with China to create this disaster. And, I have never trusted Fauci. He is either dumber than a box of rocks or he is in on making this disaster as bad as it is. Maybe both. The false reporting of the democrat governors has not helped at all. These idiot governors have helped in making President Trump make some decisions he would have not made if he got correct info. I know I am rambling, but this is such a mess, it is getting harder and harder to make any sense of it all. Just what the Democrat Party wants.

        I doubt they are smart enough to coordinate with China. However they ARE smart enough to maliciously take advantage of the situation that the Chinese created

        Though you could be right, maybe the Dems are Quislings.

  • Lm says:

    Yes symbolic to say you are a stooge for the masses. I unfortunately have to wear one to do my job. It is unhealthy breathing in your own CO2 all day and getting half your oxygen to make paranoid sheeple feel at ease. Talk about a violation of human rights.Class action lawsuit maybe

    • Annabel says:

      Lm I so agree…it cannot be healthy and also almost all the masks are made in China!! Lord knows what that entails for our health as they may be wiping us all out in one fell swoop. Even if the masks are made in the U.S. where does the fabric come from? All those miniscule fibres cannot be healthy.

        Our best recourse is to join any movement that wants to Sue China. Stop buying their junk plastic lawn chairs and the other cheap crap they sell through Walmart. Look for the UPC code 690 thru 695. All of that crap is made by Chinese Coolie slave labor. Support the President in his efforts to take China to task for ripping us off. The Democrats are in bed with the Chinese. Pelosi’s kid Paul and Humter Biden have gotten millions from them. The DNC gets funded by China, in violation of our election laws, but the House has made itself immune to any prosecution for the crimes they commit. The house has proven they are NON ESSENTIAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES. they have been on a paid vacation since Christmas with Nancy in CA eating gourmet ice cream,. The whole bunch need a lesson in 2020 vote them out no matter how much they spend in China money to take power. Rebel against their scheme to harvest ballots. I saw it done in Broward County Fl as a poll worker. The corruption was off the scale. Finally it got so bad and we had films and documents of the corruption by the Democrats we got Brenda Snipes Supervisor of elections removed. They should have jailed her, but they let her retire on a big pension. Disgusting. The Dems never pay for their blatant crimes.

      This whole mess is leading America into the 1st stages of Socialism. Just what the brainless Democrats want.

  • will says:

    Get rid of this guy . He’s all over the board, so inconsistent and full of predictions that never happen. We are looking at a little guy who needs attention and will say anything to get it. I can’s believe he even fooled the President. Listen to nothing this guy says because he is NEVER CORRECT. he is a real loose cannon just shooting off his mouth, and kissing up to whoever will listen to his insanity. Remove him from any position of authority. One other thing for 30 years he has been in some leadership position in medicine, and after being in charge of a large overpaid staff like him. They have never produced one cure for anything.

  • Linda says:

    This little creep is a fraud and Democrat to the core. He knew exactly what his mission was and how to accomplish it. He is getting scared, as people are not buying his garbage anymore.

  • Matt says:

    Dr Faucet is controlled by a little knob on the top. Twist it and something spews out.
