Dr. Anthony Fauci has consistently told Americans we should “follow the science” in managing the COVID-19 pandemic. That is all well and good. However, compliance with that advice requires a roadmap. Since Fauci is the only scientist we can listen to in the public square, he is obligated to provide one, especially since the goalposts have moved continuously.
Restrictions began to prevent the healthcare system from being overwhelmed by “flattening the curve.” Even the hardest-hit areas, like New York City in the early pandemic, never came close to exceeding capacity. At the time, no one expected the area under the curve would change significantly, just the slope of the curve. As hospitalizations and deaths began to decline, the new metric to impose restrictions became positive tests. Lately, Fauci uses the level of virus in the community as the hurdle the nation needs to clear.
In congressional testimony on April 15, 2021, Representative Jim Jordan (D-Ohio) tried to force Fauci to provide detailed metrics for when Americans could expect to return to pre-pandemic life with their liberty and freedom restored. Dr. Fauci never answered the question, and Democrat members of the committee admonished Jordan.
