    Surge Summary: In the face of striking numbers that indicate good news on the COVID-19 front, Dr. Fauci and Jill Biden imply the need for mask-wearing isn’t anywhere on the near horizon. Why, you’d almost conclude some big government types don’t want the pandemic problem to fade away too soon.

    by Gary Bauer   

    Dr. Anthony Fauci raised eyebrows yesterday when he was asked how much longer we might need to wear masks.  He said only when the virus was at such a low level that “it’s not a threat at all” could we even “start thinking in terms” of not wearing masks.  And he doesn’t expect us to reach that point until “late fall.”

    Showing her support for a national mask mandate, First Lady Jill Biden recorded a public service announcement that aired Super Bowl weekend encouraging Americans to wear masks while walking their dogs outside.  There’s no science to support wearing masks outside.

    Meanwhile, most of the media and the White House are strangely silent about the incredible improvement that is currently taking place.  According to the latest weekly trends, coronavirus cases are down 23%, hospitalizations are down 14% and deaths are down 12%.

    To be clear, there is nothing the Biden Administration has done in the past few weeks to account for that improvement.  All they are doing is distributing the vaccines that the Trump Administration produced.

    We’re also still in the middle of winter, which all the experts said would be a very dangerous time.  So what explains this large and sudden drop?

    Well, there have been more than 27 million diagnosed COVID-19 cases since last year.  The CDC has said that it believes many more people have actually been infected, perhaps as many as ten times the number of known cases.

    In addition, more than 30 million people have received at least one vaccination shot.  And if the CDC is correct in its estimates, then as many as 270 million people may have already had the virus.

    In short, we could be experiencing this drop because we may be getting close to herd immunity, which is how President Trump said we would defeat this virus.

    So, what explains our own government not giving us any hope by telling us that things are moving in the right direction?

    Sadly, I suspect quite a few on the left want a continual crisis to exploit.  As Obama’s former chief of staff put it, never let a crisis go to waste.  The pandemic enables the left to do all the things they want to do, from closing businesses and churches to massively increasing the size and scope of government.

    By the way, are you ready for climate change lockdowns?  Many progressives are thrilled about last year’s drop in carbon emissions caused by the pandemic lockdowns.  Believe it or not, they see the lockdowns as a model of success, and many are urging President Biden to declare a national climate emergency.
