During an interview with CNN Friday afternoon, Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked about why millions of Americans who contracted and recovered from Wuhan coronavirus need to get vaccinated for the disease. In his response, he claimed he doesn't "really have a firm answer" on why.
Dr. Fauci on why Americans who have already had COVID are subject to mandatory vaccination, despite having more effective natural immunity:— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) September 10, 2021

Because of his basic study in epidemiology, Fauci does know that natural immunity is generally an effective defense against disease. Further, a new study from Israel shows recovering from Wuhan coronavirus offers individuals up to 27 times more protection than government approved vaccines, especially against the Delta variant.
"This study demonstrated that natural immunity confers longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity. Individuals who were both previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 and given a single dose of the vaccine gained additional protection against the Delta variant," the study states.
I really hope Biden recognizes natural immunity tomorrow in his Covid announcements. Israeli study found it is 27x more effective than vaccines in preventing symptomatic infections. https://t.co/nm08Yl2sr8— Marty Makary MD, MPH (@MartyMakary) September 9, 2021
Fauci's feigned ignorance comes one day after President Joe Biden announced a federal vaccine and testing mandate for private companies will more than 100 employees.
