Did Dr. Fauci a Lockdown?
“How much will it take for you to promote a national lockdown?” LaPook asked Fauci.
“They have to get really, really bad,” Fauci said. “First of all, the country is tired of restrictions. So we want to use public health measures, not to interfere with the opening of the economy, but to be a safe path to the opening of the economy. So instead have opposition: open the economy [to] get jobs back, or kill. No. Put ‘shut down,’ away and say, ‘We will use public health measures to help us safely get where we want to go. ”

On July 24: “I don’t think it’s necessary to do that. It may come, but for now, I think if you look at what’s happening in some Southern states, with a resurgence of cases, you can pause what are you doing, or maybe retreating.Let me give you an example.If some states or cities are in phase two of the American opening rules, again, you may want to stop or return to phase one – or if you’re in phase one, go back to the gateway part of the rule. So I’m not sure you need, all of a sudden, everything to go back to a complete lockdown. You know, it will come. You often leave it on the table, but I think we can turn what we are doing now and put a lid on it and stop it by being more careful. ”

This is what you do so much. You think everything is closed or, you know, keeping the air and we can’t do that. That will get you in trouble. “

But what they have to do is… hunker down, as I said, which means making sure people do the things we are talking about. If they do that, they don’t they need to be completely quiet. They need to open slowly and carefully. And I believe that is what Governor Cuomo is trying to do …. I just think we need to focus on the four or five main things we need to do , “Fauci continued.
