There has been a lull in hearing from White House medical advisor Anthony Fauci in recent weeks, but many will be glad to hear what he most recently said. Fauci declared the United States ‘out of the pandemic phase’ of the novel coronavirus.

However, some are critical as to the manner in which he made the declaration. Fauci’s “comments were buried at the end of an interview with PBS’s NewsHour on Tuesday” and “caused some confusion by saying the ‘pandemic phase’ was over at home but ‘is still ongoing globally” reports Daily Mail.

Fauci said “We are certainly right now in this country out of the pandemic phase.” Well, that sounds great. “Namely, we don’t have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths. We are at a low level right now” he continued.

“So, if you’re saying, are we out of the pandemic phase in this country, we are. What we hope to do, I don’t believe — and I have spoken about this widely — we’re not going to eradicate this virus…If we can keep that level very low, and intermittently vaccinate people — and I don’t know how often that would have to be…That might be every year, that might be longer, in order to keep that level low. But, right now, we are not in the pandemic phase in this country…Pandemic means a widespread, throughout the world, infection that spreads rapidly among people. So, if you look at the global situation, there’s no doubt this pandemic is still ongoing.”

Daily Mail writes that health experts pointed out Fauci was adding to confusion over the term pandemic, adding he should have said the ‘US is in a phase of lower hospitalization rate’.

Oddly, Fauci continues his personal policy of mask wearing and general isolation in spite of his comments to PBS. He declined an invitation to the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) Dinner this coming Saturday “because of my individual assessment of my personal risk.”

Will it ever end? On Tuesday this week China’s health authority recorded its first human infection of the H3N8 strain of avian influenza. The variant was identified in a 4-year-old boy from Henan province.

According to a statement from the National Health Commission (NHC) the child raises chickens and crows in his home city of Zhumadian. On April 5 he showed fever and other symptoms, then was admitted to a medical institution five days later for treatment.

The statement indicated while it has been found in horses, dogs, birds and seals around the world, no human cases have ever been reported. Fox News reports the commission “warned the public to avoid contact with sick and dead poultry, as well as live poultry, and pay attention to hygiene.”

In March, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wrote highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses had been detected in 13 states among commercial and backyard poultry, as well as in wild birds of 14 states.

Fortunately, the agency said H5N1 bird flu poses a low risk to the public.
