A Stanford epidemiologist known as out Dr. Anthony Fauci’s flip-flopping from the start of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic to now, saying the science didn’t change, Fauci did.
“I think his credibility is entirely shot,” Stanford professor Jay Bhattacharya advised Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” on Friday.
Bhattacharya famous Fauci’s altering messaging throughout the pandemic.
“In the early days of the epidemic, he was quite a sensible person,” Bhattacharya stated. “He understood immunity, he understood the need of not panicking the inhabitants. Something occurred in late February the place he simply flipped on a dime.
“It wasn’t the science changing. Something else happened where he just changed.”
Bhattacharya known as out Fauci’s “rookie mistake” in overestimating the COVID-19 fatality charge at 2%, based on emails from March 2020, when that was misinformation for the general public.
“He made a rookie mistake that no epidemiologist should make,” Bhattacharya advised host Laura Ingraham. “He conflated the case mortality charge with the an infection mortality charge. There’s many, many occasions extra individuals with infections of COVID than have been caught, particularly again then.
“He should have known that.”
Bhattacharya added the two% quantity is “way higher than what is actually true for COVID,” estimating 0.2% mortality charge worldwide for COVID-19, “an order of magnitude lower.”
“It’s just an enormous mistake,” Bhattacharya stated. “And I think it’s really unfortunate that we have this person who just didn’t really have the expertise to lead the response, and yet we somehow we venerated him.”
And masks steering probabilities have been only a pattern of Fauci’s deceptive the general public along with his altering insurance policies that weren’t supported by precise science, Bhattacharya stated.
“Yes, you should change your mind when the science changes,” he concluded. “What is that science that changed that convinced him that masks are the most effective way?”
