7-day moving average of new positive test results for Covid-19 has fallen to 12,780 as of late today.
Average daily deaths has fallen to 346, the lowest since March 29, 2020. And this week includes thousands of deaths occurring months ago but added to this week’s tally due to catch up/corrections.
As a follow up, in March, Dr. Fauci said the U.S. should not reduce any restrictions until cases reach 10,000. Which is where we will be in the coming week. (Update: Only made it to about 12,000 – the pace has slowed and it may be another 1-2 weeks.)
Many states ignored him in March, cut all restrictions, and their cases continued to drop at the same rates as before. By now, a majority of U.S. states have eliminated all or nearly all restrictions and cases continue to fall.
From last March.
Fauci’s comments come as some states begin to pull back restrictions, including doing away with mask mandates, allowing businesses to fully open and increasing the number of people allowed at mass gatherings. That is “inexplicable,” Fauci said earlier.
I understand the need to want to get back to normality, but you’re only going to set yourself back if you just completely push aside the public health guidelines — particularly when we’re dealing with anywhere from 55 (thousand) to 70,000 infections per day in the United States,” Fauci told CNN’s Erin Burnett on Wednesday.
No one in the field ever looks back at their past statements and issues corrections. There is zero acknowledgement or accountability. There appears to be zero learning from past errors. The field has the accuracy of astrology – look at widely publicized projections from Osterholm, Ferguson, Walensky, Murracy, Feigl-Ding, Fauci, etc.
