Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul told Dr. Anthony Fauci that “one-size-fits-all” lockdowns are “kind of ridiculous” and blasted “wrong prediction(s)” during the White House coronavirus task force member’s Senate testimony Tuesday.
[…] “I don’t think any of us are certain when we do all these modelings–there have been more people wrong with modeling than right,” Paul said. “We’re opening up a lot of economies around the U.S., and I hope that people who are predicting doom and gloom, will admit that they were wrong if there isn’t a surge. Because I think that’s what’s going to happen.”
“In rural states, we never really reached any sort of pandemic levels, in Kentucky and other states,” the Kentucky senator added. “We have less deaths in Kentucky than we have in an average flu season. It’s not to say this isn’t deadly, but really, outside of New England, we’ve had a relatively benign course for this virus nationwide.”
