    Fauci Stands by Criticism of Great Barrington Declaration; Author Responds

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on May 11 reiterated his criticism of the Great Barrington Declaration, refusing to back down from his previous remarks on the strategy for handling the COVID-19 pandemic.

    In emails obtained by The Epoch Times, Fauci compared the strategy to AIDS denialism and his former National Institutes of Health boss, Dr. Francis Collins, claimed the authors were “fringe scientists.”

    Rep. Ben Cline (R-Va.) asked Fauci about the messages during a hearing in Washington, noting that a recent review showed that many of the declaration’s signatories were top-cited authors.

    Fauci said that his issue with the declaration was that the authors were stating that officials should “let the virus run free in society and only so-called protect the vulnerable.” If that was done, he asserted, “we almost certainly would have had many more infections, many more hospitalizations, and many more deaths.”

    “So with all due respect to the scientists who signed the declaration, I completely disagree with them,” he said.

    ...

    Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, one of the declaration’s authors, told The Epoch Times in an email after reviewing Fauci’s new comments that he’s shocked that Fauci is maintaining his position on it.

    “It is shocking that Dr. Fauci remains blind to the strong scientific evidence that the lockdown approach that he championed has caused devastating harm to the poor, vulnerable, and working class,” Bhattacharya wrote. “His only regret seems to be that we did not lock down hard enough like China did, where healthy residents have been force-quarantined, children separated from parents, pet dogs and cats killed, with no discernible effect on the spread of the disease.

    “Dr. Fauci is the epitome of a failed leader and it is far past time for him to step aside.”
