Senator Marco Rubio’s rants against Fauci on lies about masks and distorted herd immunity



Florida’s senator Marco Rubio posted his grievances against National Institutes of Health official Dr. Anthony Fauci and received a blasting from Twitter users. This is not the first time that the senator had been at receiving end for his misleading statements. He said that “Dr. Fauci lied about masks in March” and had distorted “the level of vaccination needed for herd immunity.”


It was not only the Democrats, but leading experts and members from his own Republican Party criticized him. The Republican group who is anti-Trump asked him the reason why he was attacking Dr. Fauci but not commenting on the president of the nation who constantly lied to Americans about “this terrible pandemic?”


Rep. Mark Pocan, a Wisconsin Democrat was more hard hitting when he wrote, “F*king bull, and you know it Mario.” He also told the senator to “remove your head from Trump’s butt, please. Much better air will clear your head.”


Dr. Fauci responded that although they had urged Americans against mask wearing in March, it had been advised because of the initial scarcity of masks for medical professionals. The CDC had changed its recommendations and advised mask wearing from April as they realized the contagiousness of the coronavirus.


He also told the New York Times and other media that they shifted the percentage required for herd immunity of 60 to 70% to an upward of 75 to 85% after Americans became more willing to take the vaccine, as per public polls. He also said that the new estimates were based on results obtained during earlier measles vaccinations and the opinions of fellow epidemiologists.
