Fauci Defends China’s Cover-Up of COVID Outbreak, Says to Prepare For More Restrictions

(Headline USACoronavirus Czar Dr. Anthony Fauci defended communist China’s cover-up of the COVID-19 outbreak in an interview this week, saying there was “nothing wrong” with what they did.

When asked by BBC about a World Health Organization report that revealed Chinese officials prevented a thorough investigation into the origins of the outbreak, Fauci claimed their “natural reflex” to cover things up was understandable.

“You know, I don’t want to create any, or mention any, disparaging remarks about that, but the Chinese are very closed, in a way of being reluctant,” Fauci replied, “particularly when you have a disease that evolves in their country. 

“I think they were very concerned and maybe embarrassed that the virus evolved from their country. But there’s nothing wrong with that,” he said. “So when they see something evolving in their own country they tend to have a natural reflex of not necessarily covering things up but not being very open and transparent.”

Fauci also insisted that Americans need to “be prepared” for more COVID-19 restrictions if another variant emerges, and downplayed the harm caused by lockdowns.

“I don’t think we’re ever going to be able to determine what the right balance is,” he claimed. “I think the restrictions, if you want to use that word, which I tend to shy away from – lockdowns, they certainly prevented a lot of infections.”

He admitted that he is hesitant to call for another round of lockdowns, but only because there is now “a charged element to it.”

“Obviously, those are negative consequences that are unintended. But one has to look at the balance of lives saved, hospitalizations avoided,” he said.
