Why Dr. Fauci Lied to Americans About Herd Immunity

Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) called out Dr. Anthony Fauci after he acknowledged intentionally misleading the American public about the coronavirus herd immunity threshold.

Rubio accused Fauci of being an outright liar.

“Dr. Fauci lied about masks in March,” Rubio said. “Dr. Fauci has been distorting the level of vaccination needed for herd immunity.”

According to Rubio, Fauci’s attitude toward the American public is a part of a bigger issue: that those in control think they know what is best for everyone else.

“It isn’t just him,” Rubio said. “Many in elite bubbles believe the American public doesn’t know ‘what’s good for them’ so they need to be tricked into ‘doing the right thing.'”

The New York Times published an interview with Fauci on Christmas Eve, allowing the story to be buried by the holiday. In the interview, Fauci admitted to misleading the number needed for COVID-19 herd immunity for very unscientific reasons.

At the beginning of the pandemic, Fauci said publicly that as little as 60% of the American public would need COVID-19 immunity to achieve herd immunity. But Fauci slowly increased that number as the pandemic raged on, even suggesting in his interview with the Times that as much as 90% of the American public would need immunity to reach the herd immunity threshold.

Fauci admitted he changed his numbers because of public polling data and to encourage more Americans to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Times reported:

“In a telephone interview the next day, Dr. Fauci acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.”

“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent,” Fauci admitted. “Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ʻI can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.”

“We need to have some humility here,” he added. “We really don’t know what the real number is. I think the real range is somewhere between 70 to 90 percent. But, I’m not going to say 90 percent.”

  1. You cannot control the people by telling them the truth. Also you cannot make BILLIONS on “vaccines”, if no one needs them. It is all about MONEY and POWER my friends. The democommunists (by using “dr” fauci) STOLE MILLIONS of TAXPAYER $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, that helped fund the development of this “control-us-virus to make it more lethal to humans,then, bought and paid for” “pandemic”, all because #1, their other schemes, scams, FAUX “impeachment” FAILED,and #2 the TRUMP ECONOMY was doing so well and they could NOT “control” it SO, to make the people helpless, so “the “pandemic” was the next “scheme”, after all the others FAILED. To the communists, a “few deaths” are “collateral damage” as long as they get complete POWER and CONTROL.
    Wise up America..

    1. Cliff you hit the nail on the head. I do not trust any of BIDENS Administration or Biden himself.
      Dip – – – – – Are all liars. I trust no one that lies.

  2. why I do not believe anything the Trump and his administration says because they have lied so much everyone around him have to lie to keep their job toxic White House.

  3. Dr. Fauci Should have been fired a long time ago for lying to the American people now we can not trust anybody about the issue

  4. Most people who follow science news knew he was lying from the beginning because viruses are so tiny they can penetrate most fabrics.Even surgical masks only keep out bacteria.

  5. I think the best mask is a face shield-no chance of germs getting through! but I am going to get the vaccine in my own time. In Texas, it is not mandatory. I never listen to him. He’s not to be trusted
