Hosts at Fox News sounded off Monday against Dr. Anthony Fauci’s overblown warnings against the recent Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus, claiming his moves did “immeasurable harm.”
The comments were made during a segment of “The Five” regarding the new variant discovered in South Africa.

“For Dr. Fauci again to go out and scare the entire country in the world into thinking this is going to be the death of everything again did immeasurable harm,” co-host Katie Pavlich said.
The changes have included new travel restrictions, as well as extended mask mandates through March 18, 2022.
In New York, Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul also canceled elective surgeries statewide, a potentially life-altering move.
“Fauci needs to stop speculating and tell us what the facts are,” co-host Jesse Watters said. “Then we can make our own judgments.”
Dr. Fauci says it’s “really too early to say” whether to expect new lockdowns or mandates for omicron variant.
The irrational belief that lockdowns and mandates are effective is the real global pathogen that must be stopped.

The warnings may sound good to some, but the premature changes have led to concerning consequences that many are blaming directly at Fauci.
