The Good doctor says this IS common sense….
The White House has held “serious discussions” with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about recommending that those vaccinated for COVID-19 can socialize together, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci — who said he is eager to take up that advice and finally hug his daughter after a year.
Noting that “even though it isn’t backed by data, it’s backed by common sense,” Fauci told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night that people who have received all their doses could start hanging out.
Fauci, who serves as science adviser to President Biden, noted that “even though the risk is not zero, the risk becomes extremely low when you have both parties vaccinated.
“So we’re going to start seeing people saying, ‘Hey, the more people get vaccinated, I can have dinner with my family member that comes in,” he said.
“Back before they were vaccinated, if they wanted to come to visit you, they would have to quarantine for a while, get tested, wear a mask,” the nation’s top infectious diseases doctor said.
“My professional judgment is that when my daughter wants to come in here and she’s doubly vaccinated, I’m going to have her over the house and I’m going to give her a big hug that I haven’t been able to do for a year, “ he added….
Make no mistake…
This is also a political and economic statement…
