Dr. Fauci says Americans Should Wear Goggles for Added COVID-19 Protection

Dr. Fauci says Americans Should Wear Goggles for Added COVID-19 Protection

As an added bonus, Fauci goes on BET to gin-up a racial angle to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House pandemic task force and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is now suggesting that wear goggles or face shields as an added measure of protection against contracting the Wuhan coronavirus, according to a report.

“If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it,” Fauci, 79, the top US infectious disease expert, told ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton on Wednesday.

When asked if eye protection will become a formal recommendation at some point, he said, “It might, if you really want perfect protection of the mucosal surfaces.”

“You have mucosa in the nose, mucosa in the mouth, but you also have mucosa in the eye,” he said. “Theoretically, you should protect all the mucosal surfaces. So if you have goggles or an eye shield you should use it.”

He added that while goggles and eye or face shields are “not universally recommended” at this time, “if you really want to be complete, you should probably use it if you can.”

I do not think Americans will follow this “suggestion.” The guidelines were supposed to be in place long enough to flatten-the-curve, not until the virus disappeared. Americans are already chafing at mask-mandates, and social media responses suggest that the “suggestion” is more proof that Fauci’s goal to continue generating pandemic panic.

But Fauci wasn’t done stirring up more unease. He went onto BET to push the social justice agenda as to why African Americans are at higher risk for significant health effects after infection with the coronavirus.

It’s what I call a double whammy against the minority, but particularly the African American and Latinx community. You don’t like to generalize, but as a demographic group, the African American community is more likely to be in a job that does not allow them to stay at home and do teleworking most of the time, they’re in essential jobs. I mean, obviously, there are a lot of African Americans who are not, that could just as easily do that.

As a bonus, there was a discussion of comparing the testing of the COVID-19 vaccine with the Tuskegee Experiment, which is sure to promote all sorts of racial healing.

We have a history that has gotten much much better. But it is a bad news history with the Tuskegee Experiment.

Too bad there was no mention of Vitamin D deficiency, which is known to be a problem among minority communities. Distribution of supplements might go much farther, quelling the COVID-19 crisis that social justice whining and goggles.

Looking at these reports, I think it is wise to heed the words of Peter Navarro, an assistant to the president and the director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public, but he has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.

…[W]hen Fauci was telling the White House Coronavirus Task Force that there was only anecdotal evidence in support of hydroxychloroquine to fight the virus, I confronted him with scientific studies providing evidence of safety and efficacy. A recent Detroit hospital study showed a 50% reduction in the mortality rate when the medicine is used in early treatment.

Now Fauci says a falling mortality rate doesn’t matter when it is the single most important statistic to help guide the pace of our economic reopening. The lower the mortality rate, the faster and more we can open.

So when you ask me whether I listen to Dr. Fauci’s advice, my answer is: only with skepticism and caution.

Fascist Fauci, a Faucist.

I get the feeling that they are now just making fun of us, trying to find out just how gullible we are. Time to pull the plug on this idiocy.

    They’ll have people in fully encapsulated Level A suits with SCBAs by the time this is over.

    I mean for… We were wearing face shields at work two weeks ago and then the CDC said, Nooooo that’s not good enough. So, now we have to wear masks. Now what, are we supposed to wear both?

    I’m gonna end up tripping over something because my shield fogs up, bash my head against a piece of equipment and then my death certificate will list my COD as “COVID-19” so the hospital can get at that sweet government cash.

    Hey, maybe they’ll hook me to ventilator before they pronounce so they can get the full $35,000.

      The proponents of the masks eye protection are essentially advocating that the human race should evolve to where humans can only survive in sterile environments. Terrible long term solution

      Ferfuggs eggs in reply to JohnC. | July 31, 2020 at 11:26 am

      We’re forced to wear masks at work (construction). It’s a physically demanding job and my face has been breaking out from sweating after wearing that thing all day. Not to mention it cuts off oxygen during strenuous activity, sometimes I feel like I’m gonna pass out. I’m concerned that this prolonged mask usage will have adverse effects on peoples health. I’m just going along with it right now to comply so I can keep working.

        Joe-dallas in reply to Ferfuggs eggs. | July 31, 2020 at 12:17 pm

        Facebook runs a Covid update – one of the permanent articles is “covid myths” One of the “covid myths ” is that masks do reduce the oxygen intake. Facebook claims that myth is false.

        Odd but every kid by the age of 5 that has tried to sleep with their head under the covers knows that is true.

        randian in reply to Ferfuggs eggs. | July 31, 2020 at 6:40 pm

        Why? It is a known fact that covid 19 is not transmitted in open air environments, and that heat (considering it is summer at the moment) kills it.

      GatorGuy in reply to JohnC. | July 31, 2020 at 12:04 pm

      Hilarious, were it not so alarmingly dystopian. You seem to be handling it all quite well.

      Keep up the great satire; ‘ seems it’ll enable you to pull yourself through all this.

      GatorGuy in reply to JohnC. | July 31, 2020 at 1:50 pm

      You know, all the nefarious material we write and read aside, it can’t be denied: there’s a whole cottage industry springing up from the deadly debacle. And maybe even a “2010”-like or other new morning and awakening.

      Nature can certainly work that way. Case in point being, it’s valid to argue that, had there not been the plague (the so-called Black Death [uh-oh, did I misspeak?], that most infamous pandemic, responsible for as many as 75-200 million mortalities, centered, among other places, in Europe from 1346-1353, there would have been no European Renaissance — Petrarch’s lyrical poems, his sonnets, maybe born from the unprecedented tragedy in human cost sensed all around, and self-inspired by his part in salvaging Cicero’s letters, seems to be the great mega-cultural rebirth’s starting point in mid-14th century Italy; indeed he is credited with regarding those many years earlier to his own as the “Dark Ages” — and hence, no such colonized America, as it was; and so, then, no eventual United States. No us, I mean.

      I know, it’s weird, but no weirder than the most terrible pandemic to-date’s disease-vector analysis, or inter-special, interlocal manner of spread:

      “The Black Death was the beginning of the second plague pandemic. The plague created religious, social, and economic upheavals, with profound effects on the course of European history.

      “The Black Death most likely originated in Central Asia or East Asia [!!!; this isn’t China’s first rodeo, though it is, most likely, the CCP’s], from where it travelled along the Silk Road, reaching Crimea by 1347. From there, it was most likely carried by fleas living on the black rats that travelled on Genoese merchant ships, spreading throughout the Mediterranean Basin and reaching Africa, Western Asia, and the rest of Europe via Constantinople, Sicily, and the Italian Peninsula. Current evidence indicates that once it came onshore, the Black Death was in large part spread by human fleas – which cause pneumonic plague – and the person-to-person contact via aerosols which pneumonic plague enables, thus explaining the very fast inland spread of the epidemic, which was faster than would be expected if the primary vector was rat fleas causing bubonic plague.”

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Death
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petrarch#cite_note-2

      I shudder to think that, as a second example of nature’s possible way in all this, if it is even one at all, were it not for the unique scale and nature of genocide that is the Holocaust, far, far less than the Black Death’s toll, but sufficient contributory cause (there was good, earlier necessary cause in place, such as the Balfour Declaration) might have been absent to expedite the desperate Jewish ingress into Mandatory Palestine, leading to, and with major world support for, the creation of Israel as the Jewish State.

      These are the kinds of historic events that possess so much irony and serendipity, although it’s mighty difficult to foretell any such propitious, extensive linear outcomes during the period of terrible suffering.

      In sum, and by way of a strictly, even crassly material benefit to some in the midst of this horrible pandemic, true, larger and more important silver linings will come to appear, and may later even magnify in their effect.

      Experiencing and appreciating the eventual epilog to all this might be “worth” — on some imagined, far different plane of existence other than our own, 4-D world of space-time — all the dread and misery as a means there.

      Point being, finally, the big calls on this are not entirely ours to make, as higher forces and powers, both personal and impersonal, might already be at work. Who knows?

      Anyway, it might be a longer trip out of “here,” arriving “there,” than the public health “experts” are telling us. Maybe, if we’d like, and can, we should buckle up and try to bear the ride, and even be sure not to forget to at least try to have fun.

When dealing with Fauci the only essential equipment needed is a good pair of earplugs.

2smartforlibs | July 31, 2020 at 9:29 am

No mask, Mask, goggles, face shield, goggles, and mask. Hazmat suit. Why the hell does Shaman Fauci get any time at all?

…has Fauci extolled the virtues and benifits of goose stepping yet?

Is it me or does feel like Fudgie Fauci rolls dice, or throw darts at a dart board hanging in his office with written on post-it notes that have potential solutions to prevent against the China Virus?

Who is paying him? Follow the $$$.

    Or maybe instead of $$$ today, since favors are fungible barter, it might be direct, top-access to even higher (global) influence and power — along with, and, I suspect, more likely than not, an amply generous wad later, once things quiet down and all the buzzin’ around, little that there is and will be, finally comes to a needed rest for these antisocial, lying, grifting deformities.

    This is, and these individuals are, in my view, the stuff of 007- or Superman-challenged crimefighting or world-saving, no kidding. Where’s our national hero, or even, say, Nietzsche’s Ubermensch (God, forbid), when you need him or her?

This is evidence the pandemic is easing. Fauci scrambling for attention. Trying to stretch his 15 minutes of fame and get his golden parachute it even better order.

Get the hook…this guy needs to be pulled off of the stage.

Every Fauci radio news piece begins “Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top disease expert”. It’s like it is his full name 😉
Sorry, to me he is just a stereotypical government employee 🙂

stay home, stay safe
you must obey
sit down, shut up
do as I say
the science says
this is the way
I know – I made it up today

I’m smart they say, I know it all
So what if I can’t throw a ball?
When scary virus comes to call
my expert measures will make it stall
put up a wall, avoid the mall
we must shut down ’til end of fall

Tony “Baloney, Frogeyes” Fauxci incorporates all known updates to this madman and his ventures, allegedly dedicated to protecting and advancing the public health.

Except for the deceased or suffering ill required to continue their efforts at home — past flattening the curve, for whatever the current reason.

“It’s all about the election,” did someone say? Regardless . . .

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

“Attribution of the saying likely derives from earlier expressions regarding legal witness, where it takes forms relating liars, damned liars, and experts:

“That phrase is found in the science journal, Nature, in November 1885: “A well-known lawyer, now a judge, once grouped witnesses into three classes: simple liars, damned liars, and experts. He did not mean that the expert uttered things which he knew to be untrue, but that by the emphasis which he laid on certain statements, and by what has been defined as a highly cultivated faculty of evasion, the effect was actually worse than if he had,” where the reference to the judge may be to Baron Bramwell.”

    GatorGuy in reply to GatorGuy. | July 31, 2020 at 11:21 am

    I say “madman” — and this theory’s out there but, given recent events and general truths, as plausible, I think, as some others — because I believe Tony Baloney-Frogeyes is instrumental in the block to keep, at the very least, HCQ + Zn + maybe AZM, and possibly other, unapproved anti-COVID-19 therapeutic modalities, from entering unorthodoxly designed, clinical study-trials, specially adapted to the novel coronavirus’s atypical biology, pathogenesis, and clinical features.

    IOW, being a highest-level tool as Director of IAID at NIH for BigPharma and how clinical trials must be universally structured and populated to be valid — in allowing the fiercely competitive anti-infective agent industry to feel comfortable that their pet-candidate, for which hundreds of millions of dollars had been invested to get the big payoff of approval, was treated fairly by the trialist-investigators at, say, Fauxci’s institute, among many other venues, and regulators at FDA — he wants a terribly cheap therapeutic retread, like HCQ, to fail.

    This is the sideline action while firms like Pfizer et al rush to the goal line with a big-ticket, big-prestige and PR, save-the-world vaccine. Soros, WHO, China, the Gates’s — they’re all in on the globalist-friendly scam.

    Meanwhile, taxpayers will be footing the bill, one way or the other. There’s plenty of greasy pork to go around for anyone interested in pushing pricey vaccines over dirt-cheap HCQ, the losing of tens of thousands of lives in the interim notwithstanding. Legislators, media moguls, Madison Ave execs — anyone financially interested welcome to join in and “contribute”. Fauxci’s certainly doing his part effectively, thus far.

    Pure evil, advanced sociopathy/psychopathy, if ultimately detailed and confirmed; near-Hannibal Lector-like in scope (except, of course, for the fresh cheek-biting or brain-extracting and their utility for a later, sauteed culinary misadventure), I’m afraid.

      GatorGuy in reply to GatorGuy. | July 31, 2020 at 11:29 am

      Correction, and pardon me:

      Rather than “China,” I meant to write “General Secretary Xi Jinping’s CCP”. He, indefinitely-for-life commanding his ruthlessly authoritarian, murderous party, decides these fates, not the people of China.

Off topic, but this is insane. No honest person would accuse me of being in the tank for Trump, and if he’d suggested that he could delay the election I would be ridiculing his ignorance, but he didn’t do that. Not in any way. All he did was ask whether the election should be delayed. It’s a reasonable question; if you or I were to ask it nobody would accuse us of fascism, so why shouldn’t Trump ask it?

Presidents propose legislation all the time; by this standard every time they do so they’re being fascist! It makes no sense. If it had been Dems saying this I would understand, because their venom has driven them insane. But for these two to say it, I don’t understand at all.

The answer to Trump’s question, of course, is that while it’s possible to delay the election, it can’t be delayed by more than a few weeks because there needs to be a new congress by Jan 3, so there’s not much point. And that in any event his term can’t be extended; if the election has not yet been held his term will expire at noon on Jan 20 and he’ll be out of office, so for his own sake if he hopes to be reelected he needs to have the election long enough before then for the electors to meet and for congress to confirm it. But those are the answers; they don’t invalidate the question.

    I took it as a shot-over-the-bow against the current push by the left for universal vote-by-mail.

    He does this sort of thing all the time, it’s a key part of his negotiating style.

      Plus, it made a mass stampede by the Leftists to insist that absolutely, no doubt, without fail, proof positive, there was going to be an election held on the assigned day.

      I swear, the man could announce that breathing was good for people, and the next day, every single frothing critic of his would try to prove him wrong…. thud.

    Babylon Bee chimes in

    https://babylonbee.com/news/gracious-trump-suggests-delaying-election-until-dems-can-find-a-candidate-who-can-think-clearly

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—President Trump, always desiring to be gracious and fair, suggested delaying the election yesterday until the Dems can find a candidate who can form complete, coherent sentences.

    “Look, I want this to be fair,” Trump said. “Why don’t we push this thing off six months or so? That will give the Dems plenty of time to try to find someone who can go toe to toe with me. It won’t be easy. There aren’t many. But I’m sure they can find a worthy opponent for me to beat.”

    Trump was praised for the graciousness and compassion of the move.

    “I disagree with Trump on everything, but this was really nice of him,” said a DNC spokesperson. “We’re going back to the drawing board and trying to find someone who can talk and think and all those qualities you really want in a leader.”

    The Democrats did manage to locate a few candidates who can string sentences together, but sadly they were all accused of sexual assault, so Trump agreed to give them another six months.

    GatorGuy in reply to Milhouse. | August 2, 2020 at 5:18 am

    Very fair, very wise; most informative and generous of you to share.

    Thanks, Mil. You’re a richly edifying kinda guy (when you either sleep or wanna be — just kidding).

Fauci talks like a man who knows he can’t be fired. He also knows that if he is, CNN will hire him and pay him millions.

I don’t know why Trump doesn’t stop Fauci and all the rest from giving interviews, writing, etc about the virus
He could say we will funnel information through the daily China virus update

He has to shut the Dr liar up!!!!

Not rocket science President Trump

Shit him down!!!!

At this point I think the imp may be put in as a replacement for Biden!

    Milhouse in reply to gonzotx. | July 31, 2020 at 1:32 pm

    I was thinking the same thing a couple of months ago. He’s in the perfect position to do it. Close enough to Trump to sink a metaphorical knife in his back, with public credibility that Trump gave him.

Fauci should have learned from his abysmal throwing out of the first pitch–being an expert in one area does not automatically make you an expert in others. As every youth hockey coach in the world has screamed a thousand times, “skate your lane.”

    CorkyAgain in reply to Obie1. | July 31, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    Sorry to go all Milhousey on you, but making recommendations for dealing with an epidemic — however dubious the epidemic and/or the recommendation — *is* Dr. Fauci’s lane.

    GatorGuy in reply to Obie1. | August 2, 2020 at 6:32 am

    His public health pronouncements, whose chronology Tucker Carlson has meticulously and admirably tracked and by which he very recently concluded — after Dr Fauxci’s ridiculously treacherous and shamefully quibble-laden, unprofessional, nakedly partisan hemming and hawing as a witness, debating and a little roughly but otherwise sensibly and fairly be questioned by Ohio representative and famous liar-exposer Jim Jordan at a recently held Coronavirus subcommittee hearing — that Dr Fauxi is a 1st-class fraud in his long-tolerated White House assignment.

    That assessment, a journalistic triumph unto itself, rests precisely on the predicate that what Dr Fauxci pronounces in that position has — after refusing to categorize the “peaceful protesters,” who generally welcome into their ranks the violently criminal demonstrators, as a species of close-crowd participants, like churchgoers and others, activities the doctor warns strongly against for the sake of all during the pandemic — unmistakably revealed his ongoing commission of a classical rhetorical, or informal fallacy.

    The category of subtle falsity or invalid argumentation that is an informal logical fallacy is just as you accurately describe; and it’s titled, for the benefit of anyone interested, the Argument from Authority. It’s been tried time and again by quisling-like fraudsters, just like Dr Fauxci, since God knows when. It’s an unmitigated scam in this case, and it’s just about destroyed our economy, on purpose.

    The thankfully unwoke Americans, we, are finally experienced enough to fully catch on. And you’re onto his shtick, don’t ever let him fool you. He’s an ethically filthy, deceptive blowhard, strictly in this respect and partisan hack — arguably, some say, even allegedly worse — dressed in the camouflage of a giant physician/infectious disease expert. The public-health thing he’s been doing on the side these many months is a complete hoax, we now, finally, have all the indicators to fairly establish. (Thanks go especially to Rep Jordan!) As PDJT might say, it’s fake, and, you, like other millions of Americans, know by instinct, it’s fallacious and phony.

    (At the same time, at his main gig, I hear he’s terrific, top drawer — a reliable tool for BigPharma, keeping clinical trials nicely designed and populated, ie, perfectly scientific, fair, and equal for all makers and trialists. In that position, I guess he’s the “devil” they know and need, and can count on to get their sometimes quite costly — in the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of shareholder-infused investment — approved in a fully kosher, officially authentic, play-by-the-rules manner. It pays a heck of a ROI. Tony’s thus, for BigPharma at least, and I’m sure ethically and decently for more who might otherwise die of all the complicated effects related to infectious disease without the blessings of such research and eventual medical care, a good man. But altogether, I’m saying, only to a very clearly marked point.)

Comanche Voter | July 31, 2020 at 12:02 pm

Fauci’s next mandate will be to stick a cork in your backside. His opinion and advice often changes but the little weasel is never in doubt.

Now there will be a run on goggles, everything from the swim kind to the skiing kind to the workplace kind, by the people who believe every word he says and will be scrambling to find some while demanding everyone else do the same.

What happened to keep your hands away from your face, and don’t rub your eyes?

Save some money and go buy yourself a cheap pair of large sunglasses.

I wear glasses, and I have no intention of getting a face shield.

Flimflam man.

This is getting ridiculous. Is he deliberately trying to discredit himself?

Just think how many people would be alive if we used HCQ in early treatment.

Or how GDP would not have taken a hit, if we had followed the Swedish model.

I think I’ll add a tin-foil hat to go with the mask and goggles.

And if that’s not enough to satisfy these people, I’ll get a sandwich board proclaiming the message that “The End is Near! We’re all doomed!”

The China virus can travel by farts, the imp now recommends sticking a cork up your anus, or if one is not available, your finger..

Only been wearing a face shield at work and grocery store the last month in a mask mandatory state.
Regular visionary I am, LoL.

chrisboltssr | July 31, 2020 at 5:59 pm

One of the great lies associated with the Wuhan Virus, apart from whatever Fauci crap Fauciism Fauci is spewing, is the lie this disease disproportionately impacts blacks. It does not and the mortality and infection rate for blacks is below what it is for Whites and Hispanics, according to the CDC. I don’t even know how we started focusing on the impact of the disease on certain races, but it is a lie that blacks are impacted more by the Wuhan Virus than any other race.

The definition of “essential job” now includes “inability to telework”? That’s a remarkable expansion of the scope of that term.

    Milhouse in reply to randian. | August 2, 2020 at 2:47 am

    Yes, the definition of “essential job” in this context does include inability to telework, because no matter how essential someone’s job is, if they can do it from home then they have no need to go do it anywhere else.

how many of you could be wrong at you work 100% of the time and still hold your job? not to mention a salary that’s just shy of the president of the country!
