Dr. Fauci needs to be more careful choosing his words on #Coronavirus, & if he’s going to be critical, make clear what he personally could’ve done better.

“Dr. Anthony Fauci admits earlier Covid-19 mitigation efforts would have saved more American lives”…
As a reminder, on April 2, Dr. Fauci told the NYT that “[F]rom the beginning, (@realDonaldTrump) always took (#Coronavirus) seriously.”…
And let’s take a look back at what else Dr. Fauci has said about #Coronavirus.

On January 21, Dr. Fauci told @Newsmax TV that #Coronavirus “Is not a major threat to the people of the United States.”

Further, on January 26, Dr. Fauci told NYC’s AM 970 that the #Coronavirus “Isn’t something the American public needs to worry about or be frightened about.”…
I would add on Feb. 3, Dr. Fauci told CNBC “As the entry into the United States of potentially infected people is diminished because of the travel restrictions on both sides ... I think you are going to see a dampening down" of U.S. #Coronavirus cases.…
My point here is that hindsight is 20/20 & everybody has things they wish they’d said differently.

On Feb. 10, Dr. Fauci told the WaPo that outside of China, regarding #Coronavirus, “There is very little — but some — transmission from person to person.”…
Case-in-point on do-overs & needing to be more careful with language: in his Feb. 10 WaPo interview, Dr. Fauci said of #Coronavirus, “[S]hould we do anything different from what we’re already doing? No. Should we all be wearing a mask? Absolutely not.”…
This #Coronavirus quote from Dr. Fauci to the NYT on Mar. 8 is spot-on, and true to this day: “It’s so easy to play Monday morning quarterback ... Every element of the federal government was working full-speed to try to get this out and get things going.”…
Here’s another good clip of Dr. Fauci on The Today Show from Feb. 29:

“Right now, at this moment, there is no need to change anything that you’re doing on a day by day basis. Right now the risk is still low, but this could change.”
