Dr. Fauci may be in for some bad news. The man who has been peddling COVID panic for months now, pushing confusing messages and flip-flopping all over the place may be exiting stage left soon – and no, not because he’s getting the boot.
It’s much better than that.
Under the current CDC guidelines, COVID may lose its epidemic status thanks to the steady decline in deaths, something our media and Dr. Fauci seem to avoid celebrating and talking about for some odd reason.
As Matt Margolis, a writer for PJ Media points out in a tweet, it’s been 21 days since COVID cases started to spike, but the death rates continue to decline.
Here’s what he said: “It’s been 21 days since #coronavirus cases started to spike, but deaths continue to decline. The median days from onset of symptoms to death is 18.5.”

A disease outbreak qualifies as an “epidemic” by the CDC when the number of weekly deaths caused by the disease exceeds a certain percentage of overall deaths, explains Daniel Payne of Just The News.
According to the CDC, “Based on death certificate data, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19 (PIC) decreased from 9.0% during week 25 to 5.9% during week 26, representing the tenth week of a declining percentage of deaths due to PIC.” If the percentage continues to decline, it is likely COVID-19 will lose its classification as an epidemic in the next few weeks.
Some might scoff at the idea that deaths will continue to decline, but it’s been 21 days since COVID-19 cases started to spike and there’s been no spike in deaths.
Considering this data, it seems likely that deaths will continue to decline as it is mostly younger people getting infected, and treatments have also improved. A recent large-scale study conducted by the Henry Ford Health System also found that despite past reports and fearmongering by the media, hydroxychloroquine reduces the death rate of COVID-19 by more than half.
This is great news for everyone, but curiously enough, our media and experts don’t share in the good news. Rather they have been mute on the issue, instead only sharing doom and gloom.
To be clear, if you’re vulnerable or high-risk, take precautions, if not, COVID has over a 99% recovery rate and over 80% of people will not even feel a single symptom, so you’ll likely be okay.
COVID is not a death sentence, no matter what the media tells you.
