Dr. Anthony Fauci revised his previous comments regarding mask-wearing to prevent the spread of CoVID-19 this week; saying “two coverings would be more effective.”
“Because, I mean, this is a physical covering to prevent droplets and virus to get in,” Fauci told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie on Monday. “So, if you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on — it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective, and that’s the reason why you see people either double-masking or doing a version of an N95.”
“Just 100 days to mask, not forever, 100 days. And I think we’ll see a significant reduction,” Biden said in December.

DR. FAUCI: President Trump is Giving People Hope, That’s ‘Not an Unreasonable Thing’
Coronavirus Task Force leader Dr. Anthony Fauci weighed-in this weekend on President Trump’s handling of the global pandemic; saying the Commander-in-Chief was giving people hope during a national crisis.
“Many of the things that you hear out there may be true… but they’re anecdotal. The only thing I was saying is that if you want to know if something works, you have to do the kind of trial where you get the good information,” said Fauci.
“The President is talking about hope for people. It’s not an unreasonable thing to hope for people. When you have approved drugs… There are those who lean towards giving hope, and you have the other group to prove without a doubt that a drug is safe,” he added.
