1/ UPDATE: from our deposition of Fauci yesterday in the MO v. Biden case. Fauci confirmed that in Feb 2020, Fauci sent Clifford Lane, his deputy at the NAIAD, as the U.S. representative for the WHO delegation to China. Lane convinced Fauci we should emulate China's lockdowns.

@akheriaty Our lockdowns were nothing like China's. Trump wanted us to believe it would not be a problem until it was clear & he aggressively urged governors to kind of lockdown. Then he extended the pseudo-lockdowns. Had we done it like China while waiting for Vax, we'd have far less death

@kaceysharon @akheriaty Perhaps you should look into the data from countries that did not lock down. It will show, there was little, to no difference in the outcome. You want to blame Trump, but who was he getting his guidance from? Fauci.
