Dr. Anthony Fauci called China’s decision to lift “flawed” lockdowns “unfortunate” during a Friday Fox News appearance, saying they failed to “open up safely.”

“China had a policy that I think was flawed. They locked down completely for a very long period of time,” Fauci, who retired as chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden in December, told “Your World” host Neil Cavuto. “When you’re going to strictly lock down, you should use that period to be able to do things to allow you to open up safely. One of the things you can do, during that period, get as many of your citizens vaccinated as possible, particularly the elderly.”
“That’s something that the Chinese did not do,” Fauci continued. “I mean, they locked down in a very stringent manner, and then had political pressure among their citizenry about opening up, and they did, they opened up, and were quite vulnerable. It is unfortunate.”

China ended its COVID lockdowns following days of protests in the wake of a deadly fire in an apartment building that killed at least ten people. COVID-19 mitigation policies, including locked doors, led to the Chinese government trapping the people inside the burning building according to the BBC.
China claimed that seven people died from COVID as of Dec. 27, but anecdotes of overflowing body bags and hearses at funeral homes and cemeteries called China’s reporting into question, The New York Times reported.
“They’re getting the worst of both possible outcomes. They’ve locked down and had a negative effect on society. Now they’re opening up,” Fauci said. “They’ve got to get those people, particularly the elderly, vaccinated or just like you say correctly it is projected that between now and April there will be anywhere from 650,000 to a million-plus deaths in China, which would be terribly tragic for that population.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced Friday it was investigating whether Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine creates an increased risk for people to suffer strokes.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.
To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.
Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.
All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
