Fauci Delivers Blunt Assessment of U.S. Coronavirus Death Toll: ‘We’ve Done Worse Than Most Any Other Country’

In an interview on Good Morning America Monday, the infectious disease expert was questioned by host George Stephanopoulos about whether there was more that the U.S. could have done to lessen the impact of Covid-19.

“Five hundred thousand Americans — families grieving all across the country,” Stephanopoulos said. “Did this have to be?”

“Certainly some of it, but not this bad,” Fauci said. “I believe that if you look back historically, we’ve done worse than most any other country — and we’re a highly developed rich country.”

Fauci did not invoke or directly assign blame to former President Donald Trump. But he did cite the prior administration’s lack of a national strategy as a primary reason why the virus has hit so hard.

1. Four per cent of the world's population. Over 25 percent of the cases (and those are just the ones

4. I don't think so. It's just not on Dumdum's radar

because it was all happening to people he didn't know and when it happened to him, he pulled a bunch of strings and got over it, so why didn't they do the same thing?

It happened because Republicans just don't give a damn about anyone else.

5. The entire administration was grissly inept & had no interest in governing

Nor did they care about people, only to ise their positions of power for self serving influence &line their pockets.
