Dr. Deborah Birx told a House Coronavirus subcommittee that hundreds of thousands of deaths could be prevented with federal mask mandates and restrictions.
Birx: One-third of COVID deaths in the first wave were preventable.
V: And what was the impact of the failure to apply the measures to the extent what did you feel needed?
A: Well, it’s hard to give you a statistical answer about it and a number. But
when I start looking at statements that have had some of the different softening pieces used, when they had very similar demographics about states and look at states what is similar, those who had mask mandates versus those who did not masks mandate, there was just about anywhere between a 10 to 15 percent increase in deaths for those without a mask mandate. …
I believe if we have fully implemented the mask mandates, the reducation in
indoor dining room, the get friends and family to understand the risk of
meeting in private homes, and we have increased testing, that we probably
could have reduced deaths in the 30 percent less to 40 percent less
V: You said you thought 30 to 40 percent fewer deaths.
A: If you have done all the parameters perfectly.
V: And this is not a complete restraint; these are the things you recommended by the came late autumn?
A: So, really, we’m talking aboutt the 400 000 [deaths after the first wave]. So, yes,I’m talking about a third of it, I think, could have been prevented with optimal mitigation across this country.
Trump killed more than 133,000 Americans and Deborah Birx helped.
A member of Trump’s forced coronavirus job has admitted that Donald Trump killed Americans by failing to impose federal mitigation measures.
Birx abandoned her country. She praised Trump’s COVID response on television. She did not go public and sound the alarm bells that Donald Trump is killing people.
Amid a pandemic, where she knew people were dying unnecessarily, Deborah Birx did not speak out.
She protected Trump instead of the American people. Deborah Birx is not a hero, but a cause of why so many unnecessary deaths have occurred.
