Fauci says Covid mandates should have been tougher
The White House Covid chief said he should have urged harsher restrictions much earlier in the pandemic

Senior US coronavirus adviser Anthony Fauci has said that if he had another chance to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic, he would have pressed for stricter containment policies in the initial phase of the outbreak and acted with more urgency.
米国のコロナウイルス上級顧問アンソニー・ファウチ氏は、もしコビッド19のパンデミックに取り組むチャンスがもう一度あれば、発生の初期段階でより厳しい封じ込め政策を求め、より緊急に行動していただろうと述べた。
During an interview with The Hill on Monday, Fauci was asked what he and other health officials might have done differently with the benefit of hindsight, to which he answered: “a lot of things.”

“If I knew in 2020 what I know now, we would do a lot differently, because back then we were not sure of a number of things,” he said, adding that “there would have been much, much more stringent restrictions in the sense of very, very heavy encouragement of people to wear masks, physical distancing, what have you.”
"もし私が2020年に今知っていることを知っていたら、我々はもっと違うことをしていたでしょう。当時は多くのことが分からなかったのですから。"と彼は言い、"マスクの着用や物理的距離を置くことなど、とてもとても厳しく制限していたはずです。"と付け加えました。
Fauci went on to explain that the “insidious nature of spread in the community” should have stoked “much more of an alarm,” noting experts at the time “did not fully appreciate” that individuals without symptoms could still pass the virus to others.
ファウチ氏はさらに、「地域社会での広がりの陰湿な性質」が「もっと警鐘を鳴らすべきだった」と説明し、症状のない個人がまだ他の人にウイルスを渡す可能性があることを当時の専門家が「十分に理解していなかった」と指摘した。
“We know now, two and a half years later, that anywhere from 50 to 60% of the transmission occurs from someone without symptoms,” he continued.
「2年半後の今、感染の50〜60%は症状のない人から起こることが分かっています」と彼は続けた。
While the White House health adviser has since endorsed a variety of containment measures, such as lockdowns and masking mandates, his initial response to the pandemic was more subdued, urging Americans not to panic and even discouraging the use of face coverings early on. Fauci is now a vocal advocate of masking up, in line with more recent federal guidelines, though he told the Hill that only “high quality” and “well-fitted” masks can stem the spread of the virus.

“Right now, we are very, very clear that masks do work in prevention of acquisition and transmission. But you've got to get a well-fitted mask that is of a high quality. And the two we know are high quality are N95 and KN95,” he said.
