Sen. Paul slams Fauci for not promoting COVID therapeutics, says they could have saved lives

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has been especially convincing in his ongoing battle with Dr. Tony Fauci, President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser on the COVID-19 pandemic, who, as of late, has generated a number of headlines due to his ridiculous pandemic-related suggestions.

According to Fox News, the Kentucky Republican took his criticism to a new level this week as he accused Fauci of being responsible for potentially thousands of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. given that the infectious disease expert has all but ignored encouraging COVID-19 therapeutics, which have been proven to save lives.

Fauci, instead, has focused on the Biden administration’s narrative of pushing the vaccines — the vaccines that still allow a person to contract COVID-19 and get sick from it.

Paul’s main argument in which he accused Fauci of ignoring therapeutics is due to what he calls Fauci’s “bias” toward vaccinations, which reaches back to the AIDS pandemic.

Vaccines vs. therapeutics

In an interview with his father, Sen. Paul, who’s also a physician, went over a brief history of Fauci’s aggressive stance on pushing vaccines for a number of issues, which might be why Fauci continues to push for COVID-19 vaccinations, though they are certainly not working the way we were told they would.

“I think Fauci is of the philosophy that vaccines are incredibly successful and are the way to go versus therapeutics, for example. So with regard to AIDS, he was involved as the AIDS epidemic came up, he wanted to develop a vaccine,” the senator said.

Paul added: “There’s nothing wrong with that. He wanted to develop a vaccine. Vaccines can be great for polio or smallpox or wonderful. It didn’t actually work for AIDS.”

Blood on his hands

Sen. Paul went on to then suggest that because Fauci — and the Biden administration, and Democrats in general — have barely mentioned therapeutics for COVID-19, let alone encouraged their use, more people died during the pandemic than necessary.

“I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now from COVID because [Fauci’s] deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics,” Paul said.

“Recent data showed that monoclonal antibody treatment cuts the risk of death and hospitalization by 70% in high-risk patients and reduces the chance of infection among a household by 80%,” Paul previously wrote in an op-ed on his website.

For millions of Americans, the fact that the Biden administration seems to be ignoring these successful treatment options is quite bizarre and raises a number of questions, including just how connected behind the scenes that vaccine-pushing Democrats might be with the major pharmaceutical companies currently producing COVID-19 vaccines.
