COVID-19 treatments, vaccines could be ready by early 2021, Fauci tells Stanford Medicine

Original post made on Jul 13, 2020

The prognosis for getting a handle on the deadly COVID-19 disease could be good if the public is responsible for its actions and if scientific breakthroughs continue this year, Dr. Anthony Fauci said during a virtual event on Monday.

The countries that have beaten COVID have strong nation-wide policies on social distancing. The Trump administration delegated that responsibility to the states without giving them enough resources and scientific guidance to the job effectively.

What has Dr Fauci been doing for the past 2 months? He used to be on TV everyday explaining what was happening and what to do when the country was doing well. Then he disappeared and no one replaced him at the national level and fatalities around the country skyrocketed.

What has Fauci been doing lately? He's been sidelined by the Trump Administration which prefers to attack him and his scientific approach and puts more trust in a conspiracy-spouting former game show host. I wonder how much we the taxpayers have paid for the Trump Administration's latest anti-Fauci media blitz? That's in addition to how much we lost today in the stock market after Trump called Covid a hoax yet again.

How many have to get sick and die before they face reality?

"The Trump administration delegated that responsibility to the states without giving them enough resources and scientific guidance to (do) the job effectively."

The reason it's not going to be effective is because governors are elected and if they are elected by an ignorant anti-science, anti-reason electorate that thinks the virus is a "hoax", the virus will continue to spread in these state and the entire country. The *only* thing a governor cares about is re-election, so they will pander to whatever insane and self destructive behavior their constituents believe in.
