There’s been so much controversy around wearing masks that people are beyond confused these days. Some experts say that this is the only way to get back to normality, others don’t agree and so on.
Recently dr Anthony Fauci clashed with senator Rand Paul and they addressed the subject.
The main issue was that Fauci said that people should continue to wear masks even after they have already been vaccinated against Covid-19.
“You’re telling everyone to wear a mask,” Paul said as quoted by the online publication The Hill. “If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theatre? You have the vaccine, and you’re wearing two masks, isn’t that theatre?”
“Here we go again with the theater,” Fauci responded. “Let’s get down to the facts.”
Rand Paul was infected with the novel coronavirus
It’s also important to note the fact that Paul was infected with COVID-19 at the beginning of the pandemic last March; he also said he is immune to future infection.
As a result, he refuses to wear a mask in the Capitol and has declared he does not need to be vaccinated.
IN order to support his claim, he said that there are no studies that show significant reinfection among people who have recovered from the virus or after vaccination.
“I agree with you that you very likely would have protection from wild type for at least six months if you’re infected,” Fauci said.
Fauci also pointed out that there is no protection from some of the more infectious variants, like the one first found in South Africa. The variants are a “good reason for a mask.”

Fauci also warned state leaders against the “risky business” of eliminating public health measures, raising concerns on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” that the nation could see a new surge in cases if it lets its guard down.
Earlier today, it’s been also revealed that he addressed the missing ingredient for achieving herd immunity.
