Fauci’s Emails: Here are the Main Takeaways


As previously reported by Human Events News, a trove of nearly 3300 leaked emails both to and from Dr. Fauci reveal the dark and hidden truth about COVID-19. 

The emails, from the first half of 2020, not only reveal Fauci’s denial that the pandemic escaped from a lab in Wuhan, they prove his skepticism about masks and his vague reference to researching how to make the virus deadlier. 

They also show that during the deadliest part of the pandemic, Fauci was focused on a movie about his life. 

Here are the main takeaways from the Fauci emails, as reported by the Daily Signal.

1. The response from Capitol Hill 

To no surprise, Fauci received heaps of backlash from lawmakers on Capitol Hill. 

2. “Masks…for Infected People” 

In the early stages, Fauci was calm, cool and collected about the virus. He dismissed the need for masks, underestimated the number of deaths and said that domestic flights are safe. 

In a February email to former HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell, Fauci wrote that masks are strictly for the infected.  

“Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading the infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring the infection,” Fauci wrote Burwell. “The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out [the] virus, which is small enough to pass through the material.”

A private citizen also emailed Fauci in February, asking first whether Vice President Mike Pence had ordered him not to inform the public about COVID-19 without approval. 

The writer then asked: “I’m planning to fly domestically TOMORROW [REDACTED]. Is it safe??”

Fauci replied: “I actually have not been muzzled at all by the Vice President. And BTW, it is safe to fly domestically [REDACTED].

Just one day after the first reported death in the U.S., an ABC News correspondent emailed Fauci to ask whether he agreed with a source in the Department of Homeland Security that as many as 500,000 deaths could result from the virus and 98 million could be infected. 

Fauci replied, “That seems exceptionally high.”

3. Fauci was too busy to care

Also previously reported by Human Events News, a physicist gave an early warning that China had been lying about the number of deaths due to the coronavirus. 

Unfortunately, Fauci was too busy to care. 

In the email, sent in mid-March of 2020, Erik A. Nilsen wrote that he’d been “modeling this outbreak since January,” adding that “the data posted by China is not only garbage, it has misled the world into a false sense of security.” 

“I truly believe the outbreak tsunami in the USA [has] either already happened or is about to happen,” he continued. “As you know, as soon as a surge is sensed, the Tsunami will immediately follow. I believe we missed the containment boat quite a while ago.” 

Taking absolutely no responsibility, Fauci carelessly forwarded the email to a member of the NIH, writing “too long for me to read.” 

4. Fauci on the big screen?

Fauci didn’t shy away from a documentary film proposed by Disney. 

While millions were suffering from infection, Fauci was focused on a film about his life. 

A message from Walt Disney Co. Executive Chairman Robert Iger said the documentary would feature footage of Fauci at home as well as doing his job. 

In another email, Fauci wrote that seeing Hollywood star Brad Pitt playing him on “Saturday Night Live” had “made [his] year.”

5. Funding Fauci

The National Institutes of Health sent money to the EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit that funded coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the alleged place from where COVID-19 escaped. 

British zoologist Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance, wrote Fauci on April 18 to thank him for his statement that the coronavirus appeared to have originated in an animal.  

“I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Daszak wrote. 

EcoHealth Alliance is a federal contractor that funded research work at the Wuhan lab.

Daszak added, “Your comments are brave, and coming from your trusted voice, will help dispel the myths being spun around the virus’ origins.”

Fauci replied, “Peter: Many thanks for your kind note.”
