In a startling revelation, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a prominent figure in the fight against infectious diseases and former Chief Medical Advisor to U.S. President Joe Biden, has confessed to personally devising COVID-19 safety guidelines.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the talisman of COVID-19’s preventive measures and lockdowns, said that the “six-foot social distancing” rule was made up and “sort of just appeared”, adding that it did not contribute much to slow the spread of the virus.

During a session with Republican lawmakers in January, the full transcript of which has recently been disclosed, Dr. Fauci admitted to fabricating certain measures aimed at combating the spread of the virus.

No clinical trials to back social distancing rules

His statement that he created the 180-centimeter social distancing rule “to protect Americans from COVID-19” has left many astonished.

Fauci, who served as the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases between 1984 and 2022, told the committee that the six-foot social distancing rule “sort of just appeared” and that he can’t recall how it came about.

“I was not aware of any studies, that would be a very difficult study to do,” Fauci also said when asked if he recalls “reviewing any studies or data supporting masking for children”.

The disclosure prompted action from officials at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where Fauci serves. The NIH released a statement acknowledging the negative impact of mask-wearing on children’s literacy and learning. Additionally, they highlighted the adverse effects of social distancing, linking it to increased depression, general anxiety, acute stress, and intrusive thoughts.

Wild conspiracy theories

During his testimony before a House subcommittee, Fauci struggled to provide scientific backing for the guidelines on social distancing and mask-wearing, stating he couldn’t recall the specific research behind them.

Moreover, regarding the controversial theory that COVID-19 originated from a leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, Fauci acknowledged it as a possibility but dismissed what he termed as “wild conspiracy theories.”
