Washington, DC - In a recent interview with CNN’s Don Lemon Dr. Anthony Fauci told viewers they should wear a protective face mask when looking at their financial investment balances due to the recent Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) crisis.
Today on CNN’s show “New Day” Don Lemon interviewed former National Institute of Health leader Anthony Fauci who led the nation in policy during the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
“You see, Don, what we have here is another pandemic, but this time I really know what I’m talking about. I really think we should be taking the proper precautions and wearing face masks when opening up our stock market investment balances. We are all on this together, after all.”
Lemon asked what that does when looking at a screen of numbers and he wasn’t sure how aerosol droplets affected a phone or computer screen.
“Well, we need to act out of an abundance of caution until we know what is going on. I know it sounds absurd but we need these masks. We need to make sure there isn’t a panic buy and plenty are available for financial advisors, bankers, and those in the finance realm of the economy first, especially the government. They are our first line of defense against this.”
Fauci said that he hopes he is asked directly by the government to step in so that he can implement social distancing between investors and financial advisors.
Upon speaking to President Biden’s press secretary, Karine Jean Pierre, she said that the government is working on a solution.
“Currently, we are in the process of creating a vaccine for all those who may be affected.”
When asked what kind of vaccine, her response was as confusing as Biden speaking without a teleprompter.
“You know, a vaccine; a shot in the arm,” she said while making the jabbing motion.
