Senator Rand Paul had a heated discussion with Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday over the COVID-19 lockdown that has proven not to be nearly as deadly as Fauci and others had predicted. Instead, the fallout from the lockdown continues to be seen in a rise in domestic abuse, suicides, child abuse, issues with the food supply chain, and other predictable issues.
Rand Paul is a certified medical doctor which makes him more credible than other senators. He noted during the Senate hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pension Committee, that the mortality rate among children ‘approaches zero.’ Also, those aged 18-45 “the mortality in New York was 10 out of 100,000.”
“The history of this when we look back will be wrong prediction after wrong prediction after wrong prediction… As much as I respect you, Dr. Fauci, I don’t think you’re the end all, I don’t think you’re the one person that gets to make a decision,” said Paul – who added that we need to “observe with an open eye what happened in Sweden, where the kids kept going to school.”
“The mortality per capita in Sweden is actually less than France, less than Italy, less than Spain, less than Belgium, less than the Netherlands, about the same as Switzerland. But basically I don’t think there’s anybody arguing that what happened in Sweden is an unacceptable result. I think people are intrigued by it, and we should be.”
“I don’t think any of us are certain when we do all these modelings – there have been more people wrong with modeling than right. We’re opening up a lot of economies around the US, and I hope that people who are predicting doom and gloom and saying ‘oh, we can’t do this, there’s going to be a surge’ – will admit when there isn’t a surge.”
Fauci replied back with the tactic ‘but, the children!’ focusing on and playing into Paul’s comment that we don’t know everything about the virus, and that “we really better be very careful, particularly when it comes to children.”
“Because the more and more we learn – we’re seeing things about what this virus can do that we didn’t see from the studies in China. Or in Europe. For example, right now children presenting with COVID-19 who actually have a very strange inflammatory syndrome, very similar to Kawasaki syndrome. I think we better be careful that we are not cavalier in thinking that children are not immune to the deleterious effects.”
Watch how the issue of think of the children is going to continue to surface. It is odd beyond belief that children in Sweden, Taiwan, and many other countries have continued to attend school through this, yet now there is an outbreak.
Keep your eye on all of this as it unfolds. People were not scared enough before so now the children is the next card being played on the global stage.
Make no mistake, I am claiming I know exactly what is going on. But having some mysterious illness that children in very specific locations are getting is suspicious. Especially when many locations around the US have been opening up without a rise in cases.
Almost as if the virus was not nearly as deadly as predicted and quite possibly the Swedish model would have worked for most of the world.
