Americans would be better off if the nebulous Doctor Anthony Fauci (aka "Doc Tony") would keep his mouth shut on these often-changing COVID utterances... can't argue that Doc Tony and the lethargic CDC are all too frequently moving the goalpost on the entire COVID advice matter. Their collective actions seem very similar to that comedic football-holder Nancy as she always moves the football when Charlie Brown runs to attempt a kickoff.
An article viewed on TV a couple of nights ago stated that the incidence of influenza (aka "the Flu") is way, way down this 2020/21 season -- seems the Flu count is in the noise level this year. The article's root-cause speculation is that most people are listening to sound medical advice. People have worked to avoid socializing in large groups while simultaneously doing more logical activities to clean-up their personal life. People are more frequently washing hands, avoiding touching our faces so much, doing cleaner things to wash and disinfect objects around the house and at work -- and yes, wearing these troubling face masks in public. It should be obvious to the most casual observer that staying away from other humans and using higher standards of personal cleanliness has impacted ALL virus-born infectious diseases like "the Flu" -- and probably the incidence of the common cold. I've wondered why it takes scientists like Doc Tony to tell us these things -- over and over again.
It seems quite logical that the Flu count, among the incidence of all virus-born disease, is much lower over the past year. I've suspected for many months that some significant percentage of the high alleged COVID death count cases is actually what the "scientific community" historically once called the Flu, acute bronchitis, or a bad common cold -- not surprising at all that reports of the Flu and other respiratory infection have essentially been significantly reduced these days. Genealogists know that death certificates, where they exist in the late 1800s and early 1900s, frequently record the cause of death as "lung congestion."
But these scientists and medical professionals seem to resist telling people the truthful respiratory illness data in concise and easily understood communication -- the actual statistics on how effective America's collective cleanliness has been on the transmission of ALL respiratory infectious disease. Perhaps the statistical truth is troubling to those scientists who make their living by telling us the sky is falling. And then there is this untruth too: "A lie told often enough becomes the truth" -- V. Lenin, et al.
Otherwise put, brainwashing as pushed by social and main-stream media narratives, over time makes a lie seem truthful (lies becoming a pseudo-truth).
