Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) described as one of the world’s leading experts on infectious diseases was until recently categorically against wearing the face mask.
He offered advice and provided specific health guidelines based on scientific evidence.
Video interview with Dr. Fauci
“No reason to be walking around with a mask”. it is not providing perfect protection. It has “unintended consequences”, says Dr. Fauci
And now he is in favor of the mask.
In a bitter irony, his earlier statement (2 months ago) is now categorized as “fake news”.
Access to the video is partially blocked by “Fact Check”….
His statements are politely categorized as “Partly False”. “Outdated” scientific statement?
Now Fauci is saying exactly the opposite: “We are trying to get people to universally wear masks”.
He is lying to himself.
Dr. Fauci’s earlier statement (corroborated by scientific evidence) has been repealed.
There is a broad consensus among medical doctors that the face mask is detrimental to a person’s health.
Fauci was labelled fake news for telling the truth. And now his lies are upheld as the “official truth”.
BBC Video Interview with Fauci
It should be noted that Fauci’s earlier assessment (categorized as “partially false” by Google’s “Fact Check”) is consistent with a broad “scientific consensus”. According to Dr. Russell Blaylock: by wearing a face mask, “the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.”
Researchers found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of the mask, most had preexisting headaches that were worsened by the mask wearing, and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause.
