White House Responds After Thousands of Fauci’s Emails Dumped
Jun 04 2021
So what did we learn from them?
Thousands of private emails from United States infectious disease chief don reveal di concern and confusion wen di coronavirus pandemic start.
But Fauci, the longtime head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, apparently ignored the early warning message, writing it's "too long for me to read", in an email to his colleague Robert Eisinger.
Tori be say ova 3,000 pages of emails, na im tori pipo Washington Post, Buzzfeed News and CNN through di Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, wey date back from January to June 2020.
Another email came to Fauci from EcoHealth director Peter Daszak, whose group received hundreds of thousands of dollars from NIAID that it used to fund research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China, which has increasingly been pointed to as a possible source of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sabi pipo bin dismiss di controversial claim previous year, dem say e dey "extremely unlikely". No evidence to support it has emerged. His claims about the virus originating in the Wuhan Institute of Virology had been dismissed early by experts, but in recent weeks, there have been calls to probe the origin of COVID-19. Such research alters a virus or organism in a laboratory in a way that could make it more unsafe. But one other theory surfaced that has recently gained traction. Di doctor response to this dey fully redacted.
'There's no way of guaranteeing that, ' Fauci said last Wednesday at a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, responding to a question from Republican Sen.
In the early months of the virus, the U.S. government was still working out mask guidance - a move that has been criticised for adding to the confusion.
"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 add say mask wey dem buy for "no really dey effective to keep out di virus, wey dey small enough to pass through material".
The following month, a friend in the Chinese public health field wrote to say he has been misquoted in the media for saying the West is making a "big mistake" in not recommending mask use.
"Dr. Fauci is publishing a book and became the highest paid federal government employee while you lost your business and had your kids out of school for a year", a Daily Caller reporter, Greg Price, tweeted. "No problem. We will get through this together".
As di public begin look for answers to di crisis, Dr Fauci receive inquiries from across di USA - including Hollywood and Silicon Valley.
Actress Morgan Fairchild - who reportedly collaborated with him during the Aids epidemic of the 1980s - reached out in February asking how she could help.
"After seeing the emails, our Country is fortunate I didn't do what Dr. Fauci wanted me to do", Trump said in a statement.
