Dr. Manny Alvarez, Fox News Contributor and Senior Health Analyst joined the Guy Benson Show to discuss the new ‘Omicron’ Coronavirus variant that has emerged. Dr. Alvarez also reacted to eyebrow-raising comments made by Dr. Fauci about science.
Dr. Alvarez reacted to Fauci’s ‘I represent science’ claim saying,
“Listen. This kind of elitist behavior is what what what health care has been fighting for the last 15 years. The consensus of science is not based on one person, it’s based among many people. There are a lot of people that contributed to the discovery of science due to the interpretation of science scientific data. It takes, you know, it takes a lot of people. So when you have one person say, you know, you know, it’s like going into a patient’s room and you and you trying to say something to a patient and you say, Well, you just trust me, I’m the doctor. I know what’s best. That is that that kind of behavior is what we teach our medical students not to do, because it is not that even the patient has the right to ask questions. Even the patient has the right to say, I know my own body. Can we think about whether this treatment is the best for me?”Dr. Alvarez added, “So, you know, he represents, you know, the CDC, whatever he works for, I tend to forget all the time. But you know, at the NIH, okay, he represents that as a leader, but he doesn’t represent science as an absolute power. And I think that just, you know, the politics of Fauci are so contaminated that it really doesn’t just, you know, it doesn’t do any justice for this country whatsoever.”
