Just as we accused, Fauci admits the government was trying to manage the shortage in masks that they themselves had caused by lying directly to the American people for months that they absolutely should not wear them. Of course the only reason the hospitals needed them so badly was because people kept giving it to each other because they weren’t wearing masks.
Certainly tens of thousands of Americans are dead because they and/or the people who infected them believed and obeyed these lies. Tens of thousands. It isn’t smears, it’s droplets that spreads the disease.
The shortage could have been a real problem. But instead of lying to everyone, they should have just been honest, treated people like adults and asked please don’t hoard more than a couple months worth of N-95s, here’s how to make your own, etc.
As it stands, the leaders of the CDC, FDA and the Surgeon General are guilty of murder.
