FAUCI: ‘Conceivable’ that Masks Could Be Required Every Flu Season

Says this year's flu season has been virtually nonexistent...

Dr. Anthony Fauci, left-wing coronavirus “expert,” said it is “conceivable” that during flu and cold season, masks could become a permanent staple of American life, the Washington Post reported.

“We’ve had practically a nonexistent flu season this year merely because people were doing the kinds of public health things that were directed predominantly against COVID-19,” Fauci told NBC.

Rand Paul, R.-Ky, recently called Fauci a “petty tyrant” for discouraging Americans from socializing while promoting the potentially dangerous vaccines.

Fauci has also flip-flopped on the effectiveness of masks on several occasions, including his recent suggestion that children now wear masks while playing together.

His comments on the possibility of continued mask use also come amid the CDC’s rollback of prior mask mandates.
