from Great Game India:

During an interview with the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, Fauci admitted he made up COVID guidelines based on mere assumptions, not science.

Former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci has acknowledged that some of the strictest COVID-19 recommendations, such as social separation and child masking, lacked supporting scientific data.

This statement was made during a thorough interview that was conducted earlier this year with the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic. The transcript of the interview was made public before Dr. Fauci’s testimony on Monday.

— Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic (@COVIDSelect) June 2, 2024

In the January interviews, Dr. Fauci revealed that the widely followed “6 feet apart” social distancing guideline “sort of just appeared” and was not supported by any research, according to a transcript made public by Republicans.

This rule had serious consequences, resulting in the closing of local businesses and schools across the country. Paradoxically, though, Fauci allowed the riots and protests led by George Floyd to devastate the nation.

The transcript of Dr. Fauci’s interview with the COVID Select Subcommittee is provided below:

SOCIAL DISTANCING: THE “6 FEET APART” SOCIAL DISTANCING RECOMMENDATION FORCED ON AMERICANS BY FEDERAL HEALTH OFFICIALS WAS ARBITRARY AND NOT BASED ON SCIENCE.

MAJORITY COUNSEL: “DO YOU RECALL WHEN DISCUSSIONS REGARDING, KIND OF, THE AT LEAST A 6 FOOT THRESHOLD BEGAN?
DR. FAUCI: “THE 6 FOOT IN THE SCHOOL?”
MAJORITY COUNSEL: “SIX FOOT OVERALL.  I MEAN, 6-FOOT WAS APPLIED AT BUSINESSES—”
DR. FAUCI: “YEAH.”
MAJORITY COUNSEL: “—IT WAS APPLIED IN SCHOOLS, IT WAS APPLIED HERE.  AT LEAST HOW THE MESSAGING WAS APPLIED WAS THAT 6-FOOT DISTANCING WAS THE DISTANCE THAT NEEDED TO BE—
DR. FAUCI: “YOU KNOW, I DON’T RECALL.  IT SORT OF JUST APPEARED.  I DON’T RECALL, LIKE, A DISCUSSION OF WHETHER IT SHOULD BE 5 OR 6 OR WHATEVER.  IT WAS JUST THAT 6 FOOT IS—
MAJORITY COUNSEL: “DID YOU SEE ANY STUDIES THAT SUPPORTED 6 FEET?
DR. FAUCI: “I WAS NOT AWARE OF STUDIES THAT IN FACT, THAT WOULD BE A VERY DIFFICULT STUDY TO DO.

In a private interview earlier this year, Francis Collins, the former director of the National Institutes of Health, said that he could find no scientific proof linking social separation to a successful strategy for virus containment.

This is not only a social distancing controversy. Americans were subject to stringent mask restrictions during the pandemic, and noncompliance was penalized. These regulations applied to everyone, including adults going into businesses and kids attending schools. It now seems these orders were likewise given without a strong scientific basis.

When asked about the supporting documentation for the child masking, Dr. Fauci’s recollection was hazy.

The transcript of Dr. Fauci’s interview with the COVID Select Subcommittee is provided below:

MASKING: DR. FAUCI TESTIFIED THAT HE DID NOT RECALL ANY SUPPORTING EVIDENCE FOR MASKING CHILDREN. CONCERNINGLY, MASK-WEARING HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH LEARNING LOSS AND SEVERE SPEECH DEVELOPMENT ISSUES IN AMERICA’S CHILDREN.

MAJORITY COUNSEL: “DO YOU RECALL REVIEWING ANY STUDIES OR DATA SUPPORTING MASKING FOR CHILDREN?
DR. FAUCI: “YOU KNOW, I MIGHT HAVE, MITCH, BUT I DON’T RECALL SPECIFICALLY THAT I DID. I MIGHT HAVE.
MAJORITY COUNSEL: “SINCE THE — THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF STUDIES THAT HAVE COME OUT SINCE THE PANDEMIC STARTED, BUT SPECIFICALLY ON THIS THERE HAVE BEEN SIGNIFICANT ON KIND OF LIKE THE LEARNING LOSS AND SPEECH AND DEVELOPMENT ISSUES THAT HAVE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH PARTICULARLY YOUNG CHILDREN WEARING MASKS WHILE THEY’RE GROWING UP. THEY CAN’T SEE THEIR TEACHER TALK AND CAN’T LEARN HOW TO FORM WORDS. HAVE YOU FOLLOWED ANY OF THOSE STUDIES?
DR. FAUCI: “NO. BUT I BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF CONFLICTING STUDIES TOO, THAT THERE ARE THOSE THAT SAY, YES, THERE IS AN IMPACT, AND THERE ARE THOSE THAT SAY THERE’S NOT. I STILL THINK THAT’S UP IN THE AIR.

The ranking member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), spoke with Maria Bartiromo about Monday’s scheduled hearing for Fauci.

The COVID-19 pandemic’s source, the Wuhan Institute of Virology, was the subject of gain-of-function research that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) eventually acknowledged supporting earlier this month.

This admission completely contradicts earlier declarations made by Dr. Anthony Fauci when testifying under oath.
