Senator Rand Paul on Fauci's History of Hindering Therapeutics In Favor of Vaccines
— Ron Paul (@RonPaul) December 27, 2021
“I think Fauci is of the philosophy that vaccines are incredibly successful and are the way to go versus therapeutics, for example. So with regard to AIDS, he was involved as the AIDS epidemic came up, he wanted to develop a vaccine,” he continued in the interview with his father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul.
“There’s nothing wrong with that. He wanted to develop a vaccine. Vaccines can be great for polio or smallpox or wonderful. It didn’t actually work for AIDS.”
Paul has previously said that monoclonal antibodies “are one of the most promising treatments for the virus” after a person has been infected, but that misinformation on the antibody treatment plagues “government bureaucrats.”
“Recent data showed that monoclonal antibody treatment cuts the risk of death and hospitalization by 70% in high-risk patients and reduces the chance of infection among a household by 80%,” Paul wrote in a September op-ed. “Monoclonal antibodies have only just begun to be mentioned by the mainstream media, and misinformation still plagues government bureaucrats when discussing this scientifically-backed treatment.”
Fauci has previously noted that monoclonal antibodies are a “much underutilized intervention” for COVID-19, but such therapies are often dwarfed by his focus on vaccines.
