(WATCH) Fauci Says “We May Need” to Start Wearing Masks Indoors Again; Also Says Individual Should Determine Their Own Risk?


Dr. Fraudci is the master of mixed messages, and the self-proclaimed “Science” cannot make up his mind about COVID-19 policies.

Fraudci on Sunday said we may need to start wearing masks indoors again if COVID-19 cases continue to rise.

He fearmongered that the U.S. would likely see a fall COVID surge and Americans may need to wear muzzles indoors.

However, he also said it’s up to the individual to determine what their level of risk is before saying we may need to revert to ‘being more careful.’

“We may need to revert to being more careful and having more utilizations of masks indoors,” Fraudci told ABC’s Jon Karl.


The New York Post highlighted Fraudci’s comment about individuals assessing their own COVID-19 risk:

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday appeared to throw in the towel on more government restrictions over COVID-19 — insisting it’s now up to Americans to make their own medical risk assessments.

“This is not going to be eradicated, and it’s not going to be eliminated,” Fauci told ABC’s “This Week.” “And what’s going to happen is that we’re going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take.”

The White House chief medical adviser said Americans will have to consider factors such as their age, vaccination status and whether they live with vulnerable individuals when it comes to coronavirus precautions.

“We’re at that point where in many respects … we’re going to have to live with some degree of virus in the community,” he said.

“The best way to mitigate that is to get vaccinated. If you’re not, to get boosted if you’re eligible to be boosted.”

Fauci’s comments about the state of the pandemic were in stark contrast to the more dire warnings he issued early on in 2020.
