CALIFORNIA (Yaakov M / VINnews) — In a bombshell admission, Dr. Anthony Fauci expressed regret this week for some past statements, saying that he should have been “much more careful” with his COVID messaging, according to The Hill.

Fauci also admitted that he is “not perfect”, something that many have suspected for some time.

Fauci, who will be retiring in December, spoke with Washington Post national health reporter Dan Diamond at a health seminar, discussing the first few months of the pandemic.

Diamond asked Fauci if he would have done anything differently throughout the course of the pandemic.

“You know, the answer is yes, Dan,” the nation’s top responder to Covid said. “I mean, my goodness, no one’s perfect. Certainly I am not.”

“When I go back in the early months, I probably should have tried to be much, much more careful in getting the message to repeat — the uncertainty of what we’re going through,” he added.

Fauci went on to argue that many of his statements early on in the pandemic had been taken out of context.

“You have to be very careful. It is really unfortunate that that’s the world in which we live, in that it’s a bunch of sound bites, sound bites that sometimes get cut in half and get misinterpreted,” he said. “Someone could always make mischief by clipping out a few words.”

Fauci has been criticized for his late response to the pandemic in 2020, as well contradictory messaging on masks, vaccines, and treatments. He has come under fire for funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab, then lying about it to Congress.

He also falsely claimed that he never locked down the country, and has said that an attack on him is “an attack on science.”
