Dr. Anthony Fauci doesn’t see Americans outgrowing their face diapers anytime soon. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said on Sunday that he can’t rule out Americans wearing face masks in 2022. Hopefully, the nation’s top “expert” flip-flops on this as he has with so many other things in the past.
“I think it is possible that that’s the case and, again, it really depends on what you mean by normality,” Fauci said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” when asked whether Americans will still be wearing face masks next year.
Fauci said he would like to see the level of coronavirus infections come down in communities to a level where “there’s virtually no threat.”
“If you see the level coming down really, really very low, I want it to keep going down to a baseline that’s so low that there’s virtually no threat,” said Fauci.
“It’ll never be zero,” Fauci conceded, “but a minimal, minimal threat that you will be exposed to someone who is infected.” (Read more from “Let’s Hope Fauci Is Wrong Again With This Latest Prediction” HERE)
