(ConservativeStar.com) – Dr. Anthony Fauci of the CDC has given two recent updates on the COVID-19 pandemic and neither of them is likely to boost the spirit of a weary nation. Both of them involve extended timelines, in their own way.

Earlier this year in March, during a “60 Minutes” interview, he said face coverings weren’t necessary with the only benefit being that people might “feel a little better.” His most recent opinion is we’ll need masks and social-distancing protocols into at least early 2022, even if there’s a vaccine.
Using the word “unprecedented” in terms of coronavirus may seem overused, but that doesn’t make it any less true. During the bird flu pandemic of 1918, the world was not as interconnected as it is now, leaving the experts with no baseline to predict the course that it will take.
