“Back at the very start of the Covid outbreak in 2020, Fauci became a leading member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force under President Trump. At the time, Fauci wrote to advise an unnamed former US health secretary that ‘Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected, rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection.’ He added that masks that are available in shops are ‘not really effective in keeping out [the] virus, which is small enough to pass through [the] material.’ … This early advice was in keeping with the accepted science. … Nevertheless, when Covid hit, mask advocates – many with no medical knowledge – spread like Japanese knotweed across social media, catching the ear and eye of politicians. It suddenly became ‘common sense’ that a mask would stop virus-laden droplets. … Fauci flipped, too.” (09/06/23)
