National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted Wednesday that he knew the “draconian” COVID-19 policies he pushed for would lead to “collateral negative consequences” for the “economy” and “schoolchildren.”

Fauci’s comments came during day one of The Atlantic Festival, a three-day convention put on by the media outlet The Atlantic featuring speeches and interviews from prominent members of the media, the government, and political activists.

During the event, Fauci spoke with The Atlantic editor Ross Andersen in front of a live audience about his experiences as the leading medical professional working in the federal government during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fauci said:

“Of course, when you make recommendations, if the primary goal when you’re dealing with a situation where the hospitals were being overrun in New York, intensive care units were being put in hallways, you have to do something that’s rather draconian.

“And sometimes when you do draconian things, it has collateral negative consequences, just like when you shut things down, even temporarily, it does have deleterious consequences on the economy, on the schoolchildren. You know that.

“But you have to make a balance when you’re dealing with – we know the only way to stop something cold in its track is to try and shut things down.

“If you shut things down just for the sake of it, that’s bad. But if you do it with the purpose of being able to regroup so that you can then open up in a more safe way, that’s the best way to do it.”

  1. It’s one thing for a public health official to overreact to an emerging pandemic. It’s another thing when he persists in his foolish policy prescriptions when the data is showing we should be doing the opposite. Plus, now we know his NIH was funding gain of function research in Wuhan, and the virus appears to have been engineered, facts which he deliberately suppressed. We’ve since learned, too, of his major financial conflict of interest involving investments in the vaccines. Ne deserves to pay for his crimes against truth, his crimes against the nation, and his crimes against humanity.

  2. This guy has lived his media attention & ability to control people. There was never real risk to students but they shut down schools & students basically lost 2 years of education! This guys a fraud in my opinion!

  3. More bullshit coming from Fauci. There was no need for NYC hospitals to be overwhelmed. There was a whole friggin ship in the harbour that went completely unused as well as massive temporary structures. Most of us remember the fucking facts. Trust me, I will never forget what they’ve done.

  4. It was known early on that the elderly and immune deficient individuals were the main people at risk. Only those should have been in lockdown. Everyone else should have continued on and isolated if infected. We would have created natural immunity faster, would not be in this economic mess, and not have all the mental health fall out from this. Incompetence is ruling the world right now. We need to elect smart, no nonsense, action focused leaders.

  5. If this is true, Fauci really said what he said, and the United States put this person in charge of billion dollar budgets, listened to him on how to manage this phony pandemic, and paid him ~$500,000 a year…Americans have no one to blame accept themselves.
    What America does with him now will speak volumes about Americans.

  6. A real doctor with a functioning brain and not some government bureaucrat hack, would have know from the get go that rapidly mutating Corona viruses with an animal reservoir can’t be stopped. Natural immunity is one’s only defense. The lockdowns, the vaccines and the face masks were all pointless and should have never been forced on people. The fact they were is criminal.

  7. Look here Faux-chi — we don’t shut down for the flu, Monkeypox, AIDS, or anything else. You screwed us all!!

    I find it absolutely ASTONISHING that this man retires making more in retirement than any US President! Fishy, dishy!!

  8. My son lives in NYC. He kept talking about seeing refrigerator trucks on the streets to hold the dead bodies. So, yes optics worked to sell the plandemic.

  9. Just read RFK Jr’s book on Fauci and the collapse of the system he worked in. There a summary also available that a quick read of the book. Fauci was a greedy man and worked with Bill Gates to bilk money out of the system it’s a eye opener.
