In many regards, coronavirus — and Democrats’ concerns about it — appear to have vanished from the mainstream media.

For weeks upon weeks, the left screamed that Americans should be forced to lose their jobs, businesses, and livelihoods, all in the name of a virus with an over 99% recovery rate.

 

When small business owners went to their State Capitols to protest for their livelihoods, Democrats demonized them as selfish and grandma killers. Now, as violent rioters loot, burn down businesses, and beat up innocents in the streets, Democrats are cheering them on.

As all this plays out, public health expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has weighed in on the riots breaking out in cities every night. According to Breitbart News, Fauci maintains that these gatherings could generate a surge in coronavirus infections.

A Closer Look at Fauci’s Remarks on the Riots in America

During an interview with WTOP, the coronavirus task force doctor made some very clear recommendations regarding the often-violent protests happening in America. Fauci urged people to avoid these gatherings, but then professed that those who find themselves unable to do so should wear face masks.

During another point in the interview, Fauci also warned that a possibility exists of these demonstrations “[forcing] the spread of infection.”

The coronavirus task force doctor is one of the few people to publically acknowledge this; as previously stated, some of the most outspoken leftists who opposed anti-shutdown protesters are now supporting and even joining Black Lives Matter marches.

Gatherings that are allegedly about the death of George Floyd continue to happen across cities every day now. Political leaders still remain unsure of how to keep these demonstrations from regressing into violence, looting, and arson.

Is Dr. Fauci right? Do you think Black Lives Matter demonstrators could cause new surges in coronavirus infections? Let us know down below in the comments section!
