Fauci Endorsed COVID Lockdowns Failed and Threw Tens of Millions Into Poverty

The COVID policies promoted by Dr. Fauci, the World Health Organization, CDC and the majority of influential public health “experts” had devastating consequences, according to a new analysis published by Nature.

The report suggests that over 75 million people have been thrown into poverty, defined as making less than $1.90 US per day, than were expected before the pandemic response started.

This graphic shows how previous expectations were for global poverty rates to decline, only for the trends to completely reverse once lockdowns got underway:

Income losses were also dramatic across all demographics, but especially targeted lower earning workers.

Violence against women also increased in lower income countries, according to a UN survey:

Across 13 low- and middle-income countries, 45% of women surveyed by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) say that they or a woman they know has experienced violence during the pandemic. Violence can be physical, such as hitting or throwing an object at someone; verbal, such as yelling; and it can involve denying basic needs such as food or health care; or involve sexual harassment.

Government enforced pandemic policies have been a complete disaster.

Lockdowns, masks and vaccine mandates were completely ineffective at reducing the spread of the virus. In fact, despite Dr. Fauci’s claims that following his advice would lead to better outcomes for states and countries, the exact opposite is true.

But beyond the failure of policies to make a noticeable difference to COVID related metrics, Fauci and international politicians ignored the consequences of their mandates.

In fact, as late as April 2021, well after it was abundantly clear that his policies had completely failed, Fauci recommended that India’s government lock down their population.

For a country that already struggles with poverty, listening to his advice would have been a complete disaster.

Incredibly, less than a year later, he claimed that we may never know if the costs of lockdowns outweigh the benefits.

This research, to go along with the Johns Hopkins study detailing the failures of COVID policies to reduce mortality, shows once again that Fauci’s policy advocacy was one of the greatest peacetime disasters in history.

Every policy has trade offs, and good ones result in more benefits than harms.

Lockdowns and mandates are the exact opposite. They’ve created tremendous harms while avoiding any benefits.

And the worst part is that ego and reputation is so important to Fauci and his colleagues that they’ll never admit they were wrong and ensure that it never happens again.

  1. Don’t forget the lost learning for millions of school kids.

    All the preventative health care visits like cancer screenings people stopped doing.

    The dramatic increases in obesity, addiction, depression and suicide.

    This has been a terribly skewed public health conversation with all of the ‘costs’ attributed to one side of the equation [COVID deaths]. Not nearly enough weight has been given to the extraordinary negative impacts of lockdowns.

  2. Fauci should be dismissed from his position immediately. He mixes incompetence with willful corruption and has done for 4 decades on the tax payer payroll. Trump said when in power, that anything Fauci recommended, he’d do the opposite. Shame he didn’t just fire him!
    The WHO and the World Economic Forum have a stranglehold over world governments with graduates from Klaus Schwab’s propaganda machine running many leftwing governments around the world. Schwab has been out in the open promoting his agenda to destroy democracy and capitalism to move to a groupthink utopia where he and his cohort control the renewable industry, world supply chain and medical experimentation thru the WHO.
    Their mantra is; you will have nothing and be happy! Google it, they aren’t hiding their agenda. They claim the pandemic was an ideal opportunity to Build Back Better and produce a Great Reset. To do that they have to take ownership away from the middle class, but the low income earners and 3rd world countries will be the first to fall to dependency on the WEF as shown above.
    They are serious, they have powerful leaders destroying democracy and capitalism from the inside like Macron, Trudeau, Ardern, Albenese, Biden’s Antifa puppeteers and Newsom is in the wings waiting for his chance at national control, having already torn apart California (the 5th biggest economy in the world) and people actually moving from California to the warlord run Mexico as a better option!
    It’s all in plain sight, it’s all a google search away and it was all deliberate, why else keep implementing processes which were certifiably not producing improvements?
    Add a complicit leftwing propaganda media not only not questioning lunatic decisions, but actually banning opposition as disinformation and you know this won’t stop until the masses take this seriously and oppose it!
