Dr. Fauci’s Prognostication Missteps Come Back to Bite

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Dr. Fauci  has come under increasing pressure  do to his massively inaccurate predictions. The life long DC bureaucrat has constantly missed the mark most notably on face-masks , but also telling Americans in January , “Americans have nothing to worry about” , then later massively over estimating death tolls . While the main stream media attempts to discredit his critics the consummate publicly hound Fauci has left a significant  public record of his prognostication missteps .

On January 21st he said “Americans Don’t Need To Worry About Coronavirus:

Dr. Fauci says he warned Trump in January that the US was in real trouble but that is not what he was saying at the time. In January Dr. Anthony Fauci told Newsmax TV and other networks that the United States “did not have to worry”about the coronavirus and that it was“not a major threat.”

Dr. Fauci warned of an apocalyptic coronavirus pandemic — then just weeks later he compared the coronavirus to a bad flu.

Dr. Fauci said on February 8th: ‘Danger of getting coronavirus now is just minisculely low’:

  1. Oh, we’re holding people accountable for their poor predictions, now? Where’s the angry posts about “It’s going to magically disappear”, “It’ll be gone by easter, a miracle”, “It’ll be gone with warm weather”, and literally every other thing out of POTUS’s mouth?

    No, just continued deafening silence from the Ridgewood Blog? OK then.

  2. That clown is the face of the swamp. Trump should sack him 1st thing after elections, together with all the other bureaucrats who turned corona into a political circus.

  3. He’s being pressured from the top. So many people thought this was a joke back in March. Now look what’s going on down south.

  4. What’s going down in the south? More covid cases? Texas puts in a statistic everyone who was in contact with a confirmed covid case, even if they were never tested. FL puts bike accident deaths into covid stats. With all that noise, I’m certain of only 3 things:
    1. Until elections, stats are political, not scientific.
    2. Covid ain’t nearly as deadly as advertised and while no one wants to get sick, no, I repeat, NO mandatory lockdowns, social distancing or mask wearing is justified. It doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be encouraged to do these things individually, but we shouldn’t force people who do not want to.
    3. If you’re scared of covid, stay safe and stop dictating what the rest of us should do. I didn’t care about covid when it raged in Bergen and I don’t care about it raging in FL. Protect the immune compromised and stop dictating to the rest how to live.

  5. Dr. Fauci is very respected in his field. I, for one am going to follow his directions.

  6. You culture war vultures are complete morons. Wear a mask! At least it will prevent the rest of us from breathing in your putrid stench!

  7. I think people may not understand what “novel” coronavirus means. Its new. Any prediction is likely to be a bad one. Somehow coming to the conclusion that we should be under cautious now because he was wrong about being under cautious then is a irresponsible argument. The amount of immunocompromised people in this country is a significant percentage. High blood pressure, diabetes, lupus, crohns disease, etc…Everybody is tough until their family gets hit. Ask Chuck Woolery

    1. the post points out that Fauci has been continuously wrong , not that COVID19 should not be taken seriously and the real science does not support almost anything he says

  8. Maybe it was dirty politics

  9. Cherry picking fragments of comments out of context to frame a false narrative is pretty despicable behavior and it’s sad that is what is has come to. Dr Fauci has been warning about the dangers in a calm rational voice since this has begun and any rational person who has been paying attention knows that .

  10. So many people are making statements about statistics, scientific process, or basic health procedures….without having a basic understanding of how any of it works. If you attack a person because you disagree with him, or ignore numbers because you do not like what they imply – you are making a fool of yourself
