How does he explain the rapid drop in cases? It's certainly not from better behavior.
I suspect it’s just viral seasonality as we see with every virus pretty much, but it is interesting. We didn’t reach herd immunity with the Spanish Flu nor did we have any vaccines or many significant mitigation measures, and yet it had three distinct waves and eventually went away.

Yes, also testing has been stunted or stopped completely in many different states (particularly the large state, Texas) over the past week or so. This may dramatically influence the numbers. Surely we are on a downward trend, but believe when we catch up from the winter weather situation, we may close the gap some on the giant plunge of cases.
Either way, we are still, as of right now, clearly headed in the right direction.

These lockdowns where so overrated. Never did anything but produce worse effects, cause more death. Herd immunity will be achieved by April [wall street Journal/ breaking]. Was always the only way out. Tough medicine to swallow, but it is what it is.
Sorry but Dr.Fauci has been a disaster ,waffles, goes,speaks in a different direction everyday. Corono is over. Was a crisis and the cure became worse than the disease. All hijacked for political reasons. Proof is in the books now. Lockdowns do not work.

Punished the young and did not protect the elderly.

Are OANN and Newsmax handing out medical degrees with subscriptions now?

This is news these days huh? The current president is standing 6 feet behind him. I'm 1000% sure he'd say this about what ever President was standing 6 feet away. I'm sure he'd say this about whatever politician who was standing next to him. It's a PR stunt by Bourla to secure more and continued Gov't contracts.
