Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, proclaimed Wednesday that he is wearing a face mask in order to virtue signal ‘respect’ to other people, and that he wants it to be seen as ‘a symbol’ of what everyone else should be doing.
The often maligned Fauci made the comments in an appearance on CNN, commenting that “I think we should be recommending it. As you know, I wear it whenever I’m outside. We can try and keep the usual distance, but sometimes it is out of your control.”
“There are certain things that you can do and still do as you reopen. One is wearing a mask.” Fauci declared, adding that it’s something “everybody should seriously consider doing.”
