In the late 1880s, the German Dr. Carl Flugge determined six-feet distancing was necessary to prevent the spread of tuberculosis pathogens through respiratory droplets.
That distancing, that has been guiding public policies ever since, was recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Dr. Anthony Fauci and imposed as the law on the U.S. last year.
“Everyone knows it is universally recognized science. If you stay six feet apart from another person and wear a mask you can do whatever you need to do,” said Fauci.
However, science is always changing based on new evidence.
In June 2020 the renowned medical journal Lancet stated physical distancing of a metre (3.3 feet) is highly effective for the general public and Dr. Mark Escott (Austin public health system ) asserted at three feet there is about 80 per cent reduction of the transmission of the disease.
That crucial info was known for several months but ignored by U.S. President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Fauci, and as a result, thousands of kids have been deprived of in-school learning.
Finally , when on March 14 the Journal of Massachusetts clinical infection disease concluded
COVID-19 cases in kids and staff members in school districts requiring six- or three-foot distancing were about the same and the CDC concurred, Fauci, interviewed by CNN’s Jake Tapper, agreed three-foot distancing was safe.
It makes you wonder why this man, whose opinions sway to and from like a tree in the wind, still has the platform.
He is the one who had circumvented 2014 Obama’s moratorium on risky virus manipulation research, known as “game of function” and subcontracted that research to the N.Y.-based Echohealth Group for over US$3.7 million, as exposed by Fox investigative reporter Steve Hilton on Jan. 24. The Wuhan virology lab was one of the sites where the research was conducted, and, according to NY Post report on Jan. 3 (since challenged by several other sources) “there is a growing body of evidence the man-made COVID-19 leaked from there.”

I read this article, then read it again! My
First reaction— they, the great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, and one-year-old, must all live together. There were no masks and no social distancing, just all of them sitting close together. They complain, loudly and bitterly, they couldn’t have a birthday celebration for the one-year-old!
Reality check— it’s not about the one-year-old, it’s about the adults! But, alternatively they could always ask our fire service to do a “drive-by!” I’m sure the one-year-old would appreciate that.
My husband celebrated his 90th birthday Sunday! There was no party, no family get-togethers, no hugs! He never complained. We had balloons and signs on our lawn from our family, we sat on our porch in the sunshine as family, friends, and neighbours stopped, socially distanced, and wished him happy birthday!
He had a wonderful day, and felt very blessed.
He never complained; he didn’t make the front page of your paper. It makes you wonder how the upcoming generation will ever survive!
