Dr. Fauci Now Warning About ‘Possibility’ the U.S. has Its Own Super-COVID

Dr. Fauci Now Warning About ‘Possibility’ the U.S. has Its Own Super-COVID

The Pfizer vaccine will likely work against new coronavirus variants. Plus, the CDC will require testing for incoming international travelers starting Jan. 26.

Weeks after the global press focused on a coronavirus variation that was theorized to be “more infections,” Japan’s National Institute of Infectious Diseases reported that its researchers detected a new variant in four travelers arriving from Brazil.

This coronavirus has mutations in common with those of concern for increased infectivity.

However, at this time any information about the new variant is limited to its genetic makeup, the NIID said. The institute added it is difficult to immediately determine how infectious the new strain is and the effectiveness of vaccines against it.

The World Health Organization has been contacted by CNBC to confirm whether it has been informed about the new mutant strain of the virus. The United Nations health agency was not immediately available to respond on Monday morning.

Fortunately, new evidence suggests that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine will likely be effective against the modified coronavirus detected in the United Kingdom, South Africa, and any of the other new ones likely to appear.

Both of the variants contain a mutation within the spike protein, called the N501Y mutation, that’s thought to improve the virus’s ability to bind to our cells, making it more infectious.

In a new study conducted by scientists from Pfizer and The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, the Pfizer vaccine proved to be effective on strains with the N501Y mutation.

The variant first detected in South Africa contains other mutations within the spike protein, which raises concern these mutations could undermine the vaccines.

However, infectious disease experts remain confident that the vaccines will work against these variants and new ones that come our way.

Yet, Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci has just taken a new opportunity to gin-up more fear about the U.S. is actually being hit with its own “Super-COVID”.

Dr Anthony Fauci said it is a ‘possibility’ that a homegrown variant of the coronavirus is fueling a spike in cases across the U.S.

The nation’s top infectious disease expert said the rise in cases in America looks similar to the rise in the U.K., where the new strain was first detected

‘It could be – a possibility – that we have our own mutant that’s being more easily transmissible,’ Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told The Washington Post on Monday.

‘We don’t know. We’re looking for it…If you look at the slope of our curve, which is very steep, it looks a bit like the curve in the UK.’

I have to give Dr. Fauci credit for being consistent: Consistently creating chaos and fear in his role as a public health official.

In other news, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it will require all international travelers coming into the US to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test. The order will go into effect on January 26.

The CDC order for universal testing of passengers, including U.S. citizens returning from abroad, comes weeks after the Trump administration imposed a testing requirement for travelers from the U.K. over concerns about a more infectious strain of the virus that was detected there. Since then, the new strain has been found elsewhere in the world, and its presence in the U.S. has been confirmed.

Travelers arriving on international flights to the U.S. will need to get tested within three days of flying, and airlines will be required to deny boarding to anyone without documentation of a negative test, the CDC said. The order exempts airline crew, along with military personnel and passengers under 2 years old.

The Drivel of Dr. Doom

It’s hard to put into words just how tired I am of this lying SOB.

A new strain? Unique to the USA?

You know you’re living in a budding totalitarian state when the State does everything in its power to constantly keep the people on edge, in a state of fear.

It’s called the DNC, not news.

Will the CDC demand to see the vaccination records for all the illegals that will be streaming across the border? /sarc

Wait a sec… requiring testing from incoming international travelers? Isn’t that potentially RAYCISS?

    SField in reply to Paul. | January 13, 2021 at 2:41 pm

    Well, if I were a leftist, I’d make the test mandatory for all White incoming international travelers, and optional for everyone else. Problem solved. Fortunately, I’m not a leftist.

    Not if it’s done on every passanger

Well, isn’t that convenient. All teed up for President Harris-Biden to save the day. Bullshit meter reading is… my God, he’s buried the needle.

Each article quoting Fauci should start with the words “Liar, liar, pants on fire”.

There needs to be black tape over his face when an image is displayed before the public

Isn’t he just being honest about the occurrance of a new strain? Seems a responsible thing to do highlighting the issue. I really don’t get the hate on here for Fauci.

    I am usually one to give someone the benefit of the doubt. But in this case, has he told the truth about ANYTHING since the ChiCom virus hit? Or said something possibly true but not contradicted earlier or later?
    Further, his career record is one of bureaucratic postering with an alarming lack of achievement.

      mark311 in reply to bobtuba. | January 13, 2021 at 5:13 pm

      He is known to have lied about the herd immunity thing but otherwise he has been relatively straight. Besides that’s pretty moot. It is important to understand the implications of a new strain, if its more infectious or severe or whether the current vaccines will work. I would rather be informed about the development than kept in the dark.

        SField in reply to mark311. | January 13, 2021 at 5:39 pm

        Fauci has lied about more than that. His dishonesty about masks is common knowledge, among many other things. I’m assuming that you take the Covid-19 pandemic seriously. It can be a life or death issue for many.

        Now, let’s say your own family doctor blatantly lied to you not once, but multiple times about such a life and death issue. Would you still believe anything that doctor said? Would you trust that doctor in matters of life and death, or anything else involving you, or your family?

        It’s not about politics. It’s about a man who outright lies about life and death issues that affect an entire country on a disturbingly regular basis.

          mark311 in reply to SField. | January 14, 2021 at 3:41 am

          I’m not sure the mask thing is a fair criticism. The position changed globally on that. The old position was that the effect of masks would be limited because they would be work badly and potentially non medical grade but this was from a strictly medical setting perspective and based on quite old data if memory serves. The revised position acknowledged that masks can limit transmission distance AND in unison with social distancing can provide a benefit to reduce the probability of transmission.when someone changes there mind that doesn’t make them a lier that might well mean they have been persuaded based on new arguments and evidence.

      Yes, he tells the truth at EVERY briefing. When and if he states his name. Otherwise, not so much.

    SField in reply to mark311. | January 13, 2021 at 4:05 pm

    Fauci is by his own admission not an honest man. He’s destroyed his own credibility.

Antifundamentalist | January 13, 2021 at 3:40 pm

Wait a minute…. Didn’t they tell us that restricting foreign travel in any way whatsoever is racist?

“Dr.Fauci Now Warning About ‘Possibility’” of alien invasion on U.S. In other words, anything is possible and I’m not going to be panicked about it. Idiot.

Does the future Harris administration have this man in line for surgeon general?

Others may have their reasons for disliking Fauci as a scientist. Mine date back a few decades.

“If routine close contact can spread the disease, AIDS takes on an entirely new dimension.” – Anthony Fauci, MD, in a 1983 JAMA editorial. At a time when transplacental spread wasn’t acknowledged and everyone was scared of getting the disease because it was unclear who was at risk.

And when it was conclusively proven that no, routine contact did NOT spread AIDS, Fauci blamed the media for failing to heed his hypothetical, and the press office of JAMA for sensationalizing the issue. It was never his fault. Nothing ever is.

He’s doing the same thing now – taking the hypothetical “possibility” of a new hyper-infectious strain of this virus and running with it, whether or not the science supports it. And when Britain locks down, or California does, that won’t be his fault either. Because nothing ever is. All the fame and adulation, none of the blame, and never a mea culpa that means anything.

So no, he’s not a favorite, and he hasn’t improved with time.

    mark311 in reply to Bartlett. | January 13, 2021 at 5:14 pm

    Interesting perspective, i appreciate the point you make. I guess the question is how the information is framed.

    Ohio Historian in reply to Bartlett. | January 13, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    What I’d like to know are the following:
    The Wuhan lab was studying viruses that could be transmitted to humans.
    The lab was run miserably and had lousy procedures and not a very good design.
    The lab was funded by CDC dollars.

    But my big question is: Why? Funding dates back to Obama administration, so it was not “Trump funding the virus”. But it IS incompetent to fund a poorly-run lab doing work on contagious viruses, even if you are Dr. Anthony Fauci, the 40-year head of his group at CDC.

      Gain-of-function studies were declared unethical in the United States because they are dangerous. He wanted the information that could come from gain-of-function studies. So, he paid to have the research done where it is legal.

      And we paid with our lives for the danger.

      Technically it was the national institute of health not cdc

This information is conveniently brought out after the election cycle is over when the Trump bashing for our response to COVID is advantageous to the partisan propaganda arm of the media.

Can’t let those goal post lose any momentum!

In other news, here on the west coast, businesses are still pretty much on lock down…if only there were a vaccine.

Our only hope is “whole body condoms”

Fauci could come out as part of the Bigfoot/Nessie lives movement, and even those folks would call him on his bullshit.

If the virus subsides, Fauci will lose his place in the news cycles.

    SField in reply to elliesmom. | January 13, 2021 at 4:50 pm

    Much like Sharpton, Hill, and so many others keep stoking the fires of non-existent “racism” just to remain relevant and continue the attention and thus, the graft.

My centenarian Italian mother from Rhode Island still thinks that Fauci is the cutest little Italian doll since Topo Gigio. It’s amazing how much of America thinks at her level.

“Increased infectivity” is NOT a concern unless there is a corresponding increase in lethality.

Otherwise, STFU and quit fearmongering. This is NOT the freaking Black Death, with a recovery rate of 99+%.

    That’s not accurate at all. The death rate is circa 3x that if the flue so no it’s not the black death no one has suggested otherwise. It is still able to cause significant issues hence the large spike in deaths over the last year. And yes increased transmission will increase the number of deaths by virtue of infecting more people. So it is a concern depending on how much greater the infection rate is. The UK variant has increased infections so much that the level of hospitalisation is circa 50 percent more than in the spring. So that’s a pretty bad sign

Is there any doubt that Fauci will continue to find excuses to lock us down forever? He’s lied repeatedly, and admitted it, and yet, science is the battle cry of the leftists.

Jeez, between China virus parts one and two, “Trumpism”, and “white supremacy” I’m not even sure which one the commies want me to worry about more.

How long has it been since Dr. Fauci ever saw patients face-to-face? I think he forgets patients are human beings whom he seems to like knocking around.

Why the hell have we NOT been testing international travelers for the last 8 months??

Later this year he’ll be babbling about the new Extra Super-Duper Covid 19 strain.

Not un-like when marketing departments put New and Improved on their products every other year.

Except the only thing Comrade Fauci will be selling is himself. His genius. His selfless desire to protect us all. Every few days on network and cable TV.

Biden wanted a 100 day national mask mandate (and possibly a lockdown). Fauci has rather conveniently given him pretext for doing so. After that Biden and Fauci can be our saviors by ramping down PCR amplification along with all the false positives infecting (so to speak) the covid-19 numbers.

This guy has been so outed as a phony. Why does anyone give a shite what he has to say?

Fauci seems to really relish the limelight.

covered fractions in fifth grade–the numerator in this case(the number of infections) is significant but not the main issue–the denominator (the authentic deaths from wuhan)is the number that really matters–this explains all the padding, etc. that’s been ongoing since march or so–witout all the smoke/mirrors/lies/forgery, etc. the ” actual ” deathrate has remained in the .03 to .06 range throughout–in other words, rather negligible

had a libtard medical ” professional ” try and wind me up about the ” dangers ” of wuhan and the prudence of taking the vaccine–shut all their bs down with one question: ” dr, you say you have an accurate handle on the number of gross infections. do you have and accurate number of ACTUAL deaths from wuhan? “

we have several friends/neighbors(and by that mean about fifteen) either involved in direct care or administration capacities at three regional hospitals in our little corner of the world–have known most of them for over a decade–they have all echoed variations of the same theme:”nearly ALL of our deaths in care are recorded as due to covid.” several of them lost family members over the last year and though each of their family members had chronic underlying conditions(copd, diabetes-related renal failure, ms, cancer, etc.) those deaths were initially recorded as “due to covid.” several of of them(these folks are direct-care rns) had to actually threaten hospitals with legal action to have the correct cause of death recorded–these people have no reason to lie about circumstances–the admin folks related as how it is all about the $$$–if a ” covid ” patient arrives for treatment, the hospital receives about $10k for treatment procedures–if they place the patient on a ventilator, the charge basically doubles to $20k–if the patient actually
expires from copd, renal failure, cancer, etc. and is so recorded, then the facility’s little game is exposed

make of that what you will but imagine the money to be made by padding the death statistics in a large metro area, such as la or nyc, etc.

the math is simple so will leave that to you–the most profound testimony as to the nonsense of the whole wuhan saga came from a family member–a physician of long experience in southern africa–they possess several years experience with ebola and the subsequent deaths from its various outbreaks in africa–regards wuhan, they related as how mortality rates were, in fact, lightyears away from ebola–with a world-wide mortality rate that has remained around 1% or below throughout 2020, wuhan is still a threat but principally to those with significant underlying conditions or a compromised immune system and, in any case, nowhere near the realm of a 90-95% death rate as is typical with ebola

    If the payment increase is from a broad spectrum of ailments how can that be an influencing factor to change the cause of death to one specific cause? It doesnt sound like from your description that there is a bonus payment for Covid in particular.

    The overarching death stats definitively show a spike in death rates in 2020 compared to previous years, and other countries which have nationalised health services have the same spikes directly as a result of covid ie there is no benifit to them to record as covid, the cause of death is a stat to inform others of the situation.
