Fauci Unveils 5-Stage Pandemic Plan, Guess Which Phase He Say's We're In
Dr. Anthony Fauci says there are 5 phases to the COVID-19 pandemic and that we're still only in phase one. According to him, the pandemic will never end and our only hope is to make it to phase two—Which he calls the 'control phase'.
The New York Times reported.
“Dr. Fauci also said that the world is still in the first of what he considered to be the five phases of the pandemic. The first is the ‘truly pandemic’ phase, ‘where the whole world is really very negatively impacted,’ followed by deceleration, control, elimination and eradication,” The Times reported.
Fauci added that the only infectious human disease to ever be eradicated was smallpox but said, “That’s not going to happen with this virus.”
Further, Fauci insisted that countries needed to reach phase two, or the “control” phase, to make the virus a “non-disruptive presence” in society. When this happens, he said, the virus could be considered endemic, likening it to the rhinovirus and certain other upper respiratory infections.
Surprisingly, Fauci said during the event that since the Omicron variant is more contagious but causes less severe symptoms, it could help spread collective immunity, but insisted “it is an open question as to whether or not Omicron is going to be the live virus vaccination that everyone is hoping for, because you have such a great deal of variability with new variants emerging.”
“I would hope that that’s the case,” Fauci added, “but that would only be the case if we don’t get another variant that eludes the immune response.”
Fauci cautioned that the future of the pandemic is still unknown, saying, “The answer is: We do not know.”
In last week's hearing, Fauci successfully dodged Senator Rand Paul's questions about his alleged role in the gain of function research of Covid-19 conducted at the Wuhan lab in China.
