Fauci: U.S. Must Study Data Before Deciding on Travel Ban for New COVID Variant

by Pam Key

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Institute director Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Friday on CNN’s “New Day” that the United States was gathering data on the new COVID variant B.1.1.529 before deciding to ban flights from South Africa.

Anchor Brianna Keilar said, “Is it possible it’s already in the U.S.?”

Fauci said, “You know, of course, anything is possible. We don’t know that. There is no indication that it is right now.”

Keilar said, “In the meantime, the U.K. has banned air travel from the South African countries. Do you think the U.S. should do that?”

Fauci said, “Well, I mean obviously, as soon as we find out more information, we will make a decision as quickly as we possibly can. You always put these things on the table. But you don’t want to say you are going to do it until you have scientific reason to do it. That is the reason why we are rushing now to get that scientific data to try and make an informed decision about something like that.”

    What good is a travel ban when everyone on the planet can simply waltz across our DELIBERATELY vaporized border?

    Once you understand the scam, it makes sense that the flood of infected illegals from around the planet are no concern.

    Among the many other benefits of the invading hordes, they are a Covid dispersal mechanism. And the more Covid, the more Covid hysteria, the more vax mandates, producing (wait for it…) more mega-profits for Big Pharma and more political power for the ruling Oligarchy. It’s a feature, not a bug!

    You can think of Fauci et al somewhat like a corrupt mayor who invites arsonists into the city while selling expensive fire insurance to the plebes.
