The American people have suffered immensely as a result of the Wuhan virus.
Every walk of life has been adversely affected.
Now Dr. Anthony Fauci just gave sports fans terrible news for 2021.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has been the bringer of bad news for months.
Time and time again he’s advocated for strict lockdowns to combat COVID-19.
That caused massive disruption in the sports world; March Madness and Wimbledon were flat-out canceled, the Summer Olympics were postponed, and teams have been playing in front of empty stadiums with cardboard cutouts and piped-in crowd noise.
Sports seasons also hang in the balance because COVID tests could derail them any second.
And now Fauci is suggesting the virus could put a damper on next season, too.
According to Pro Football Talk, Fauci said that “mask wearing will continue well into the third or fourth quarter of 2021.”
Despite evidence that wearing masks isn’t terribly effective at stopping the spread of the virus, people will be forced to wear them deep into 2021.
Fauci also said, “Ultimately, when we get this under control — not only at the domestic, but [at] the global level — we will start to approach what we call normal…I don’t think…that it’s going to be at a level where people are going to feel like there are no public-health measures to be implemented until we get to the end of 2021 — at least.”
So now he’s “at least” until the end of 2021.
It never stops.
Fauci’s assertion that the virus will suddenly get under control on a global level is preposterous.
Europe locked down like all the experts implored, they still had elevated death rates, and now they’re experiencing a second wave.
Sweden didn’t lock down, and they’re much better positioned than the other countries in Europe.
The only way to get the virus under control is to socially distance and quarantine the at-risk populations.
Large-scale lockdowns with contact tracing and other measures have been shown not to work.
They also have led to negative health outcomes in other regards.
Depression, suicide, domestic violence, and deaths of despair are all up across the board.
Other health conditions are also not being properly treated or screened.
For example, some people have been fearful of going to the hospital during heart attacks for fear of contracting the coronavirus.
Fauci is soaking up his 15 minutes of fame.
It’s remarkable that all of his solutions put him at the forefront of the decision-making.
He’s also proven to be a political partisan; he refused to condemn massive left-wing protests, and he lied and said the United States was poorly positioned to combat the virus despite evidence to the contrary.
Another year of empty stadiums would be disastrous for all of the major sports leagues, and college athletics as well.
Many non-revenue-generating college sports programs have been shuttered as a result of the lockdowns.
The country has to open back up, not further lock down.
