On Sunday, Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul, following Dr. Anthony Fauci’s statement on ABC’s “This Week” about prioritizing keeping schools open, stated that Fauci owes “every single parent and school-age child in America” an apology for prior statements.
“The default position should be to try as best as possible, within reason, to keep the children in school, to get them back to school,” Fauci told ABC on Sunday, as reported by The Hill. “If you look at the data, the spread among children and from children is not very big at all, not like one would have suspected. So let’s try to get the kids back. But let’s try to mitigate the things that maintain and push the kind of community spread we are trying to avoid. And those are the things you know well. The bars, the restaurants … those are the things that drive the community spread. Not the schools.”
