Fauci 'not convinced' COVID-19 developed naturally

Dr. Anthony Fauci says he is "not convinced" COVID-19 developed naturally, and called for an open investigation into the virus' origins.

"Thereís a lot of cloudiness around the origins of COVID-19 still, so I wanted to ask, are you still confident that it developed naturally?" PolitiFactís Katie Sanders asked the nationís top infectious disease expert in an event, United Facts of America: A Festival of Fact-Checking.

"No actually," Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) said, around 12 minutes into footage of the event, which was held earlier this month but overlooked by most media outlets.

"I am not convinced about that, I think we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we continue to find out to the best of our ability what happened."

1. Yikes!

He may be giving the RW playbook more fuel; they've been saying "China planned this."

Yes: "we continue to find out to the best of our ability what happened."

2. OMG, yes.

When I read this, I found myself thinking, "Oh, Anthony honey, you may have just opened a big old can of worms here!"

I hope that's not the case, but it wouldn't surprise me if some of the rwnj types latch on to this and put it to ill use. *sigh*

3. Indeed.

No doubt they will. They don't need evidence.

5. It's called science

Morons are uncomfortable with degrees of relative certainty.

Morons need people to tell them things with certainty, and there is no shortage of people willing to do that.
