In 2019, Fauci Said Masking And Social Distancing Was Paranoia, Urged Healthy Eating And Exercise
In a little-known interview from early 2019 that recently resurfaced, Tony Fauci told David Rubenstein of “The David Rubenstein Show” that the best way to stay healthy against viruses is not to wear a mask or social distance, but rather to eat healthy, exercise and do “positive” things instead.
Almost a full year before the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) made its appearance, Fauci was scoffing at the idea of doing “paranoid” things like covering one’s face with Chinese cloth and treating other human beings like the walking plague.
“No, no, no!” Fauci interjected while laughing as Rubenstein suggested wearing a mask and social distancing as a way to stay safe and protected against infectious disease.
“You avoid all the paranoid aspects and do something positive,” Fauci added in giggling condescension at Rubenstein’s mere suggestion that wrapping one’s face in a diaper might help to prevent infection.
