Dr. Anthony Fauci is again issuing another warning against socializing and COVID-19. This time on Sunday’s “Face the Nation” where he warned parents that children should not play together unless they are wearing masks before being vaccinated.

“The children can clearly wind up getting infected,” Fauci told CBS anchor Margaret Brennan.

Fauci has been criticized by many lawmakers and opponents for his continuous suggestions and warnings about COVID-19.

Remember in February when Fauci  said masks, double masks and other virus mitigation efforts may last until 2022. Well, he and the administration don’t appear to be right about that either.

“You know, I think it is possible that [continuing to wear masks is] the case. And, again, it really depends on what you mean by normality,” Fauci said on CNN’s “State of the Union” in February.

On the recent CBS interview he said, “when the children go out into the community, you want them to continue to wear masks when they’re interacting with groups or multiple households,” he said.

As reported by the New York Post, Fauci said adults who have received the vaccine may not need to mask when around each other, but since children are not eligible for the shot, they should still mask.

Fauci said it’s “conceivable” that kids will be able to return to playgrounds and campgrounds this summer.

CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’

On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget “that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the state’s Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status” reports the Associated Press.

The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a “move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year” adds the AP.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border crisis and number of migrants entering the United States illegally has skyrocketed to historic levels since 2020 when President Joe Biden took office.

Medicaid nationwide is the current combination of federal and state governments assisting Americans and low-income adults and children to receive free health care, but the federal government does not cover those living here illegally.

“Some states, including California, have used their own tax dollars to cover a portion of health care expenses for some low-income immigrants” reports the AP. “Now, California wants to be the first to do that for everyone.”

“This will represent the biggest expansion of coverage in the nation since the start of the Affordable Care Act in 2014,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide consumer health care advocacy group. “In California we recognize (that) everybody benefits when everyone is covered.”

While 92% of Californians currently have some form of health insurance, “that will change once this budget is fully implemented, as adults living in the country illegally make up one of the largest groups of people without insurance in the state” the AP concludes.
