Fauci Now Claims Face Masks Could Become “Seasonal” Trend


Mask-wearing is and continues to be a controversial matter. There are ongoing debates and disagreements about the efficacy of face coverings, whether or not people should wear them post-vaccination, etc.

Dr. Anthony Fauci continues to be one of the most-heard voices on masking and other COVID-19-related matters. Last March, Fauci told the U.S. that no need existed for masking; then, he later changed his position, calling for mask-wearing, goggle-wearing, and next, double masking.

Over the weekend, Fauci spoke with the press and declared that the seasonal use of face masks could become a new post-pandemic trend in the United States.

On Sunday, Fauci told NBC News that “public health things” related to coronavirus have made the typical flu season “nonexistent.”

After declaring the COVID-19 vaccines as a “game changer,” Fauci stated that people may choose to wear face coverings on a seasonal basis to reduce the spread of respiratory diseases. The health official also made a point of citing Australia as an example of a nation that’s gotten the spread of disease under control.
