‘I’m not really quite sure’: Fauci can’t answer why Texas isn’t seeing a COVID increase after removing mask mandate
Mainstream media’s favorite doctor doesn’t have an answer for why Texas isn’t seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases several weeks after removing its mask mandate.
“It can be confusing because you may see a lag and a delay,” Fauci said when asked about Texas’ low numbers. “I’m not really quite sure.”
The infectious disease expert floated the idea that cases aren’t popping up because “they’re doing things outdoors.”
He also gave an excuse that it is hard to compare the numbers.
“It’s very difficult to just one-on-one compare that,” he said. “You just have to see the long range.”
Fauci hopes that case continue to tick down but is mindful it may not last.
“I hope they continue to tick down—if they do that would be great,” he said. “But there’s always the concern that when you pull back on methods…you can see a delay and then all the sudden tick right back up.”
And while businesses fail and local economies are in ruins, Fauci said we “gotta be careful…that we don’t prematurely judge that.”
