In addition to claiming he has nothing to hide and was not responsible for shutting down anything, Anthony Fauci claimed Thursday that COVID lockdowns have not “irreparably damaged anyone”.
Fauci made the comments in an interview with FOX News host Neil Cavuto, who asked “do you regret that it went too far, whatever your original intentions were… particularly for kids who couldn’t go to school, except remotely, that it’s forever damaged them?”
In his response, Fauci even suggested that he tried to get kids back into schools, stating “I don’t think it’s forever irreparably damaged anyone. But I think, obviously, and you — if you go back — and people selectively, Neil, pull things out about me. I was also one of the people that said we have got to do everything we can to get the children back in school.”
Fauci is obviously preparing for the inevitable investigation coming his way.
Fauci’s claims that children have not been damaged run contrary to a mountain of studies and evidence highlighting how lockdowns and masking in particular have had massively detrimental impacts.
A study in Britain found that many children entering elementary school have severely underdeveloped verbal skills, with many are unable to even say their own name.
According to speech therapists, mask wearing has caused a 364% increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers.
