(ReliableNews.org) – There’s a new COVID-19 variant circulating around the world and it’s causing officials some concern. There are rumblings about possible lockdowns to stop the virus from spreading like the Delta variant. However, some GOP members believe Dr. Anthony Fauci is causing unnecessary panic.
The Omicron variant allegedly originated in South Africa and contains multiple mutations in its spike protein, which means current vaccines might not do much to stop it. In response, President Joe Biden issued travel bans to eight African countries. Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), the father of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), said he thinks Fauci and other officials are “stirring the pot” when it comes to Omicron in order to stay relevant.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis spoke out on November 29, saying he wouldn’t allow the federal government to impose any lockdowns on the people of his state. He called the lockdowns the “definition of insanity.” The governor also slammed media-driven hysteria for taking away the personal freedoms of Americans.
At this point in the pandemic, Americans know what to do to keep themselves safe. They will do what they believe is right for their families and shouldn’t have to worry about the government possibly forcing them to comply with lockdowns that haven’t worked in the past.
