Fauci is now admitting that scientists said back In February 2020 that COVID 19 “could possibly be an engineered Virus” with the possibility of an accidental lab leak leading to an outbreak.
Fauci said he discussed the possibility in a February 2020 conference call just days after the WHO raised the alert level on Coronavirus, calling it an emergency worldwide.
Fauci told USA Today: “I remember it very well,” he went on to say, “We decided on the call the situation really needed to be looked into carefully.” The call included Scientists, Infectious diseases experts from California.
Fauci said that the meeting he had in 2020 was very productive where some on the call believed it was an engineered virus, but others on the call, like Fauci believed it was natural and of zoonotic nature.
Fauci told USA Today: “I always had an open mind,” Fauci went on to say, “Even though I felt then, and still do, the most likely origin was in an animal host.”
Republicans want Fauci to testify on his emails released by the freedom of information act as officials in the intelligence community trying to get to the bottom of the Origins of the Coronavirus. Other Republicans want Fauci to be fired, saying he lost public confidence with his flip-flopping.
THE WHITE HOUSE:
The White House is as of now defending Fauci amid criticism calling him an undeniable asset, adding that Biden is very confident in Fauci.
Fauci also tried to fight back by saying that an attack on him is an attack on science.
FAUCI DAMAGE CONTROL:
Fauci said during an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, “All of the things that I have spoken about consistently from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science,” He went on to say, “Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people, and there was pushback against me, so if you are trying to, you know, get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you are attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science.”
Fauci finished by saying: “And anybody that looks at what is going on clearly sees that. You have to be asleep not to see that. That is what is going on. Science and the truth are being attacked.
