If there’s one voice I could certainly go without ever hearing again, it’s Fauci.
Half the American public thinks Dr. Fauci is the only person qualified to make policy decisions regarding COVID-19.
And it’s infuriating when you dig deeper into his history to realize the seething levels of his corruption in the Medical Deep State.
But thankfully we have other voices in the medical world who continue to have different opinions than Overlord Fauci.
Finding those alternate opinions is often the biggest challenge.
One doctor who has vehemently denounced Fauci’s opinion on herd immunity is Johns Hopkins doctor Marty Makary.
In an op-ed several weeks ago, Makary claimed America would likely reach herd immunity in April or May.
We’ve reached April and Makary is sticking to that opinion that we’ll achieve herd immunity very soon.
Check it out:
Dr. Fauci should not exclude natural immunity from his herd calculation. New study: 45% of people in Los Angeles had antibodies Jan30-Feb20 (much higher now)—which is precisely why L.A. cases are ⬇️95% & positiv rate ⬇️1.7% as I explain in tomorrow's @WSJhttps://t.co/E1ief89qlz

From the WSJ:
Anthony Fauci has been saying that the country needs to vaccinate 70% to 85% of the population to reach herd immunity from Covid-19. But he inexplicably ignores natural immunity. If you account for previous infections, herd immunity is likely close at hand.
Data from the California Department of Public Health, released earlier this month, show that while only 8.7% of the state’s population has ever tested positive for Covid-19, at least 38.5% of the population has antibodies against the novel coronavirus. Those numbers are from Jan. 30 to Feb. 20. Adjusting for cases between now and then, and accounting for the amount of time it takes for the body to make antibodies, we can estimate that as many as half of Californians have natural immunity today.
The same report found that 45% of people in Los Angeles had Covid-19 antibodies. Again, the number can only be higher today. Between “half and two-thirds of our population has antibodies in it now,” due to Covid exposure or vaccination, Mayor Eric Garcetti said Sunday on “Face the Nation.” That would explain why cases in Los Angeles are down 95% in the past 11 weeks and the positivity rate among those tested is now 1.7%.
Undercounting or removing the many Americans with natural immunity from any tally of herd immunity is a scientific error of omission. When people wonder why President Biden talks about limiting Fourth of July gatherings, it’s because his most prominent medical adviser has dismissed the contribution of natural immunity, artificially extending the timeline.
And Life Site News:
Makary explained that data collected by the California Department of Public Health shows that “while only 8.7% of the state’s population has ever tested positive for COVID-19, at least 38.5% of the population has antibodies against the novel coronavirus.” Additionally, the report noted that “45% of people in Los Angeles had COVID-19 antibodies.” Makary pointed to this as evidence of closing in on herd immunity, claiming that these statistics explain why Los Angeles has seen a 95% drop in cases of the virus “and the positivity rate among those tested is now 1.7%.”
Speaking with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade, Makary criticized Fauci’s broad influence in forwarding a “vaccination-only path” to herd immunity, saying it is not “healthy for a small group of people to be making all the public health recommendations. It’s good to have multiple voices.”
Makary highlighted the mechanism by which natural immunity might be achieved: “After you get the infection, your body develops antibodies. These are the same antibodies the vaccine is trying to trigger and create. When you have circulating antibodies, that means you have protection from the infection.”
“Reinfections are very rare. That means, [natural] immunity is real,” he said.
According to Makary, “[Fauci’s] job is to prepare us for a pandemic and tell us how to manage it. He mostly missed the pandemic for the two months prior, never prepared us, was wrong on masks,” Makary added.
Makary argued that if half the population has natural immunity then there cannot be “a need for 75% to 80% of the population [to] get vaccinated to get to herd immunity.” He added that “[we] are there in nursing homes right now. Cases are down 98%.”
With the vaccine rollout in California still reaching fewer than 30 percent of the population, and with Fauci’s insistence on counting only those vaccinated to be immune, ignoring natural immunity, Makary noted that false conditions are thus created which provoke “a greater urgency for everyone to get vaccinated,” amounting to a “false justification for continued excessive restrictions on freedom.”
