(VINnews / Yaakov M) — On Wednesday, Dr Fauci appeared to drop a bombshell. He said the US is “out of the pandemic phase”.

It sounds like Fauci has declared the end of the pandemic in the US. Shouldn’t this be cause to celebrate?

Is this not the moment we have waited for, for over 2 long difficult years? Why is this not the top headline of every newspaper? Why are we not shouting from the rooftops?

The fact is, Dr. Fauci’s “bombshell” was vague and seems to have caused even more confusion. (Fauci later clarified his comments, which led to even more confusion.)

Now what? Should we take a different approach to vaccines? Will the CDC guidances change? Why did Fauci say this in a random interview, and not hold a major press conference?

Making things more confusing, right now President Biden is fighting in court to reinstate the airline mask mandate. And several days ago, Dr Fauci lamented the fact that the courts have the right to override medical experts when it comes to Covid rules.

But isn’t the pandemic over?

On Thursday, Moderna applied for emergency use authorization for children age 6 months to 6 years old to be vaccinated against Covid.

Emergency use authorization?

Even at the height of the pandemic, young healthy children were at near zero risk to get severe illness from Covid. Now that we are not in the pandemic phase, what is the emergency?

Yet again, there appears to be good news, but the message is muddled and confusing, and it is not clear how it should impact our lives in a practical way.

To be clear, I’m not suggesting that anyone do anything unsafe or not take the proper health precautions. You should consult with your doctor, follow medical advice, and take every precaution necessary to stay healthy and protect others.

And you should certainly never take medical advice from a news website.

With that said, we have a right to ask– is the pandemic in the US really over? And if so, shouldn’t we celebrate? Could it be that some are disappointed that the pandemic is over?

With Fauci’s track record, he’ll be saying the opposite tomorrow.
