Here’s Dr. Anthony Fauci making sense for a change and telling MSNBC’s audience what most of us have known all along — there’s a difference between being hospitalized because of COVID-19 and being hospitalized with COVID. The topic was the number of children being hospitalized increasing, but as Fauci clarified, children are tested for COVID as soon as they enter the hospital, even if it’s for a broken leg.
NEW – Dr. Fauci: "Important thing: Many of the children are hospitalized with Covid as opposed to because of Covid."https://t.co/g7NzfpKTsQ

That is important.
That DOES seem important, Dr. Fauci! https://t.co/krQCc5IiaD

People have been saying this from literally the very beginning. Adult deaths attributed to Covid when in truth it was coincidental and not responsible for the death.

Things we knew, but were considered conspiracy, long ago.

This has been the case for 2 years now…yet nobody wants to make that distinction until now for some reason…..

True not only for children, but everyone. The number of incidental hospitalizations has gone way up with Omicron because they are directly correlated to high levels of community spread.
Meanwhile, kids were already at very low risk from Covid-19 and even less so w Omicron. https://t.co/upOZdxuQ7f

The narrative is falling. And it is a beautiful sight to see. This thing will blow over by spring.
We are winning.

Took a long time to finally admit this & seems there is an overall narrative shift as COVID surges in places like NY/DC (damage control?)
This has been the case since PCR testing was standardized for entry in hospitals. Incidental cases shouldve always been highlighted/separated

I’m sorry but this has been true for 2 years and it’s not just being mentioned by Fauci now because of Omicron. This isn’t changing the message in light of new science or circumstances, it’s changing the message because the most fearful are now a massive electoral drag. https://t.co/axNGxQkTwd

This entire pandemic and the response by our government and others was always about politics and not health. Always. https://t.co/qT5kuY4nNr

NOT NEW! In fact glaringly obvious to any fair minded observer since day 1 of the pandemic, and true for children and adults. Looks like @WHCOS has instructed Fauci to finally acknowledge the truth. Internal polling must be catastrophic with an election less than a year away. https://t.co/u8XXaMunPo
