Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume criticized public policymakers on Tuesday for appearing to rely solely on Dr. Anthony Fauci for guidance on the coronavirus pandemic and to isolate scientists from other fields.
“He’s an epidemiologist,” Hume told Katie Pavlich de Fauci in “Fox News Primetime”. “His job is to fight this disease. He is not an expert on child psychology or child education. He is not an expert on whether cancer tests can be postponed when there are blockages that affect hospitals. He is not an authority on the economy. of the US or the damage that can be done to it. It just isn’t. That’s somebody else’s problem and it’s not his. “
Hume then criticized the governors who closed their states last year based on Fauci’s constantly evolving messages.
“When we, as a nation, change all of our policies [that] this pandemic strikes or [is] touched by him, for a person with a very narrow focus, we put an end to these insane blocks and we end up with collateral damage about which he seems unconcerned, because he is not in his stronghold, and we end the terrible problems we had, “he said.

“When they talk about ‘Follow the science’, the question is, which science? Economics is a science. Cardiology is a branch of science … If you just listen to a few scientists instead of looking through a wider lens, you end up with the kind of political decisions we make. I think these blockades and the closing of schools are the worst public policy decisions of my life. “

Although Hume attributed much of the responsibility to civil servants, there was another group that he called.
“Much of the responsibility for our unfortunate responses belongs to the media, which has been terrible at this.”
