Not content with destroying the United States with endless lockdowns, Fauci has gone global and is now recommending lockdowns for India as Covid-19 cases surge.
Fauci suggested India put together a “crisis group” that would meet and roll out Covid restrictions such as mask mandates and lockdowns.
Because lockdowns and mask mandates have worked so well in the US!
“Well, one of the things you really need to do, to the extent that you can, is shut down temporarily the country, I think is important. If we want to time out and go back to what I said, there is the immediate, the intermediate, and the long range measures to contain the virus,” Fauci said in an interview with The India Express.
“I think the most important thing in the immediate is to get oxygen, get supplies, get medication, get PPE, those kinds of things but also, one of the immediate things to do is to essentially call a shutdown of the country,” said Fauci,
The Tribune India reported:
Top US epidemiologist Anthony Fauci has suggested a lockdown for a few weeks in India as an immediate step to contain the spread of the coronavirus as its deadly second wave shows no signs of ebbing.
He said looking at the magnitude of the crisis, India should look at putting together a crisis group that would meet and start getting things organised.
He said when China had a big explosion of coronavirus cases a year ago, they completely shut down.
Fauci said it is not necessary to shut down for six months, but it can be a temporary one to put an end to the cycle of transmission.
So one of the things to be considered is to temporarily shut down, he said.
“Literally, lock down so that you wind up having less spread. No one likes to lock down the country. Well, that’s a problem when you do it for six months,” he said.
But just for a few weeks of lockdown could have a significant impact on the dynamics of the outbreak.
