NIH director Dr. Anthony Fauci “want’s people to keep their masks on” potentially forever on planes, and thinks a vaccine requirement for domestic air travel would “spur” Americans to get vaxxed.
“We want to make sure people keep their masks on. I think the idea of taking masks off, in my mind, is really not something we should even be considering,” Fauci said in an interview on Sunday.
His comments are directly contradictory to those of airline CEOs at a congressional hearing on Dec. 15. Delta Chief of Operations John Laughter said onboard HEPA filters “remove 99.99% of airborne particles onboard” on commercial flights.
United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby concurred that “effectively anywhere that you’re going to be indoors, the airplane is the safest place that you can be indoors, it’s because of the air filtration,” based on a study in partnership with the Cleveland Clinic.
Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly remarked that “the case is very strong that masks don’t add much if anything in the air cabin environment. It is very safe, and very high quality compared to any other indoor setting.”
Fauci doesn’t believe their HEPA filters cut it when dealing with COVID. “I think when you’re dealing with a closed space, even though the filtration is good that you want to go that extra step,” he said. “When you have people, you know you get a flight from Washington to San Francisco, it’s a well over a five hour flight.”
He also thinks that a vaccine mandate for domestic air travel will foster national inoculation efforts.
“A vaccine requirement for a person getting on the plane is just another level of getting people to have a mechanism that would spur them to get vaccinated; namely, you can’t get on a plane unless you’re vaccinated, which is just another one of the ways of getting requirements, whatever that might be,” Fauci added.
But pointed out that the combination of wearing masks and aircraft HEPA filters is safe enough to continue without one.
“So I mean, anything that could get people more vaccinated would be welcome,” he concluded. “But with regard to the spread of virus in the country, I mean, I think if you look at wearing a mask and the filtration on planes, things are reasonably safe,
well #poopypantsbiden has done a 180. He is now saying it is up to the States to handle covid. Hmmm, I am wondering if he knows that his shot mandate isn’t going to fly with SCOTUS so that is why he is saying that.
NOW THAT CROOK WITMER IS REPORTING A FAKE RISE IN CORONA VIRUS, BUT IT’S BECAUSE OF THE VACCINATED AND I WILL NOT ALLOW HER TO LOCK ME OR MY FAMILY UP AND NO MASKS OR ELSE WE WILL NEED TO TAKE TO THE STREETS AND PROTEST!! SHE, BENSON, AND NESSEL NEEDS TO GO!! SHE’S ALREADY PLANNING TO CHEAT, THEY MUST STOP THIS POLITICAL RAPE, WE DO NOT WANT HER!!!!
Hochul in NY is doing the same The demOrats have implement legislation: No aid for schools unless kids are vaccinated, NO health care coverage if unvaccinated, No job if unvaccinated (Welfare not mandated or lose their free stuff though), along with legislation for confinement if they feel you are a threat to society. Sounds like communism to me
Fire Fauci now!
I will second that along with Biden and Harris
Add Pelosi to that so they all are out of here! Send them to China or No. Korea.
Fire Fauci? Hope you do not mind me saying hang the bastard after 4 people I know died within 2 weeks after getting the vaccine.
We need to get rid of dr death,fraudci, he is a danger to all of us, and the human race.
Fauci is dictator and would like full control over everyone else’s life and rule the world, but he is just crazy and people are tired of him. He helped fund the lab where the virus came from fire him and put him in jail
Put him up against a wall instead.
not only did he help fund the lab where Covid was created he funded painful experments of puppies. We shoud do to him what he had done to those innocent puppies.
I’m with you.
Now PETA is after him, thank heaven, they should do him, make him pay with
Fauci would have made an excellent Nazi … Hitler would have loved him so !
How long do they take on this site to “approve” what you have to say?? Is this Fazebook too
Add Gill Bates to that list, another demon to the human race.
One of the many places a mask should not be required is a commercial airliner. Why? Because their air circulation system is superior and will clean unwanted dust and other particles better than even the best mask. Emperor Fauci is just trying to maintain his seat in the spotlight because he is an egotistical narcissistic sociopath!!
Why is he able to continue with his insanity when it is totally unconstitutional????
just say NO. Airlines do as you please; he has no control over you. Why is everyone being such a wuss and afraid of this tiny man behind the curtain (Wizard of Oz)
Fauci is trying to cover his ass knowing he helped create and release COVID !
You could put a gun to people’s heads as well, but I don’t think that many would go along with that method.
I believe it was Dr. “I am science!!” Falsi himself who said that masks did not work at the beginning of this plandemic,
Fire F’n Fauci and put him in prison for MURDER !
Fauci seems to be in way over his head, His constant flip-flopping indicates he can’t make up his mind and he is just guessing with more concern for politics than science.
R U from Union NJ. I served a famous pork store there. Chris Unseld’s driver for a couple of years
Forced medication. Ungeimpfste nicht erwünscht!
When will he make lamps of peoples skin? The last doctors of his kind did that.
Until this tyrant is thrown out to the curb, nothing will change. Nothing!
We will continue down the same path, masks forever and one variant after another.
Ultimate goal is for ALL to get the jab, which is all about control. People can do whatever they want, and I’ll be doing what’s best for me.
I’m in control of my body and myself, no one else period, end of story!!!!
That’s why we need to vote Trump in office cause he’s not afraid to do the job and has the brains to figure it out.
Fauci is a fraud – someone please fire this stooge.
He has flip-flopped so much, he has no credibility anymore! Absolute irresponsibility of administration to keep ‘relying’ on his input.
My God, these lunatics like Fauci and Biden need to be ELIMINATED asap! The educational system in our country, along with the entertainment system are now broken. They are “DEMOCRAT LIBERAL CONTROLLED” and they spew nothing but INSANITY.
They have had the “Long March through the Institutions” and are now communist, my Father warned me about what is happening in our country and the world 35 years ago! Smart well-read man!
This MANIAC needs to be gone gone gone NOW!!!! Hes CRAZY, a NUT case telling the world what they should do! When he has no clue? or he does and intentionallly wants to depopulate the USA to give it away to China.
We have to get rid to the democrat party, vote them entirely out. NO H.R. 1 central voting all to take place in Washington D.C. This would just destroy our Constitutional Republic.
Fauci is America’s Dr. Mengele. He doesn’t care the pain and suffering he spreads, he will continue doing the biding of his masters in the Democrat Crime Organization to keep the Wuhan Virus and it’s variants going. The only way the Dems win is to keep the virus going so they can use their mandates to steal elections. They don’t care about us, just building their wealth and power.
Read Robert F Kennedy Jrs’ book “The real anthony fauci.”
I think Fauci has signed his own death warrant – if he keeps up with all this BS. The real Fauci was executed and THAT is a body double in his place.
Fire Fauci and arrest him BEFORE he can collect on the $385,000 annual retirement!!!!!
HEY LYING FRAUDCI TELL THAT TO THE NYTIMES EDITOR THAT JUST DROPPED DEAD FROM YOUR POISON BOOSTER!! LYING POS!!
Just WHEN is somebody going to rid us of this piece of sorry trash?
Ask the democrats!
I’ll never fly again – they will go belly up
No matter what Fauci says or Joe Biden. for starters Joe Biden is not my president because he is a cheater and a lying pig. and Fauci comes from the Hitler family tree as far as I am concerned.
And a racist to boot. These 2 tyrants deserve each other, but not in the WH or running our country.
When is this pathetic,sick,lying,fraudci(frankenstein) going to be arrested, for crimes against humanity. Hidenbiden and fraudci have caused more deaths, by covering up,and refusing therapeudics to those who need them.Fraudci is responsible for helping create the virus and for covering for china,about the lab leak, he ia part of the whole problem, and we need to get rid of him. He is a danger to all Americans, and others.
If we take the house back, he’ll be drowning in investigations. Then I think he will have no choice but to walk away. At least I’m hoping.
NOPE NOT HAPPENING!! I WILL NOT COMPLY AND NEITHER WILL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS!! GO MAKE THOSE CRIMINAL ILLEGAL INVADERS WEAR THESE DO NOTHING SHARIA LAW MASKS AND MAKE THEM TAKE THAT POISONOUS JAB!! FAUCI’S TIME IS COMING TO AN END, GOD’S JUDGEMENT WILL CRUSH HIM AND ALL THESE CORRUPT LEADERS!
Fauci should take a long walk on a very short pier.
The sooner the better.
So Fauci is saying that the little blue mask with massive gaps at the sides is going to keep us safe on planes???? Plus, they let you take it off when you are eating or drinking. Maybe the covid germs take a break when you are eating.
Fauci should keep his mask on forever, then cover the rest of him and disappear for good. He has done enough damage in a lifetime, time to go, don’t come back ever.
WHEN is our nation going to be FREE of this ‘doctor Fauci’? He is guilty of genocide on a massive scale as was his partner Bill Gates who, along with his wife, were executed by public hanging during a trip to India along with their ‘vaccines’ and white vans a couple years or so ago. The current ‘Gates’ is a look alike. Fauci is a workng member of the new world order gang and advisor of how the genocide can be quickly accomplished on behalf of the NWO..
So can anyone tell me the real reason why we need the mask after being fully vaccinatee?
Someone fire this control freak!
“I think the idea of taking masks off, in my mind…”. Where is the REAL SCIENCE to back up what is “in my mind”?
He is just a little TYRANT PUSHING HIS AGENDA, which is NOT any sort of “science”! That little twerp is on a POWER trip like we haven’t seen in a “human” in a long LONG time!! He MUST be removed and prosecuted for his crimes against humanity!
Fauci should have been tried for treason and removed from office for the lying and obstruction of justice jeopardizing the safety and well fare of Americans
