Fauci Makes Humiliating Admission About 6-Feet COVID Rule

Fauci Makes Humiliating Admission About 6-Feet COVID Rule

Former White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledged that the rigid 6-foot social distancing guideline he strongly advocated during the COVID-19 pandemic lacked a scientific foundation.

This surprising revelation surfaced on Friday when Republican Rep. Brad Wenstrup of Ohio, chairman of the House select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic, made public transcripts of Fauci's two-day congressional testimony from January.

During the closed-door session, Fauci conceded that the 6-foot rule was essentially arbitrary and not grounded in scientific research.

When questioned about the origin of the rule, Fauci, a prominent figure, responded, "You know, I don’t recall. It sort of just appeared. I don’t recall, like, a discussion of whether it should be 5 or 6 or whatever.”

Fauci was further asked: “Did you see any studies that supported 6 feet?”

The former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases replied, “I was not aware of studies. That, in fact, that would be a very difficult study to do.”

Fauci’s nonchalant response seems to contradict his serious warnings during the pandemic, advising Americans to maintain a 6-foot distance from one another.

At the time, Fauci’s recommendations were treated with extreme seriousness by federal, state, and local officials, enforced rigorously.

Those who questioned Fauci’s directives often faced harsh criticism from the media, job losses, social media bans, and were labeled as anti-scientific “conspiracy theorists.”

The 6-foot social distancing rule was strictly enforced in various settings including businesses, schools, gyms, playgrounds, restaurants, and other venues.

Americans were advised against visiting their sick parents in nursing homes, attending church services, or holding family events like funerals, weddings, and holiday gatherings.

In another revealing part of his testimony, Fauci stated he could not recall seeing any scientific evidence that supported mask mandates for children.

“Do you recall reviewing any studies or data supporting masking for children?” he was asked.

“I don’t recall specifically that I did,” Fauci responded. “I might have.”

Notably, Fauci not only advocated for mask mandates but also suggested that mask-wearing could become a long-term requirement.

Fauci is set to testify before the subcommittee again on Monday, marking his first public testimony since his retirement in December 2023.

There are numerous unresolved questions for this controversial figure.
