Anthony Fauci said that people probably didn’t need to wear masks. That’s not what he says now because we have much more data about the virus and how it works. We are seeing science unfold in real time, with all its strengths and limitations. When science reaches a conclusion, it is only as good as the next research and may have to be revised.
Fauci is a brilliant and trustworthy scientist and if he shifts his views he has good reason. As scientific knowledge evolves, our practices may change but right now wearing a mask when in any public place, along with frequent hand-washing and physical distancing, are the best ways to prevent the spread of the virus.
The editorial cartoon depicting Dr. Fauci as a frivolous game player was a despicable slam at an honorable man. Shame on you!
