Dr. Anthony Fauci, who recently announced he would be leaving his government post as White House chief medical adviser, “claimed innocence on the fallout from school shutdowns, namely dramatic learning loss among K-12 students, in an interview that aired Sunday” writes National Review.

In an interview with ABC News, Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House chief medical adviser and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAD) had the audacity to say he had nothing to do with school shutdowns.

Fauci was the nation’s chief immunologist during the global Covid-19 pandemic and the man who millions of people listened to on a daily basis to get new and updated information on the status of the virus and its efficacy. It’s impossible to imagine how he could think he had no responsibility in any area of safety; particularly school closures.

“Was it a mistake in so many states, in so many localities, to see schools closed as long as they were?” host Jonathan Karl asked Fauci.

“I don’t want to use the word ‘mistake’ John because if I do it gets taken out of the context that you’re asking me the question on,” Fauci replied.

“Could there be too high a price?” Karl clarified, referencing the dismal mental health crisis and failing academic performance that resulted.

“What we should realize, and have realized, is that there will be deleterious collateral consequences when you do something like that,” Fauci said. “The idea that this virus doesn’t affect children is not so. We’ve already lost close to 1500 kids so far.”

Karl interrupted, “But much less than the older population obviously.”

Fauci then claimed that he repeatedly suggested school districts to keep schools open as long as possible. “No one plays that clip. They always say ‘Fauci was responsible for closing schools.’ I had nothing to do [with it]. I mean, let’s get down to the facts,” he asserted.

National Review debunks Fauci, noting that “As late as September 2020, Fauci recommended that schools only open back up once the virus is ‘under control,’ he told CNN at the time.”

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
