THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER – Dr. Anthony Fauci said in an email last year that face masks aren’t needed unless an individual was sick and that the coronavirus was able to pass through personal face masks easily.

Fauci wrote in February 2020:

“I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a [very] low-risk location. Your instincts are correct, money is best spent on medical countermeasures such as diagnostics and vaccines.”

“Safe travels,” he added, at a time when government officials were urging states to limit travel.

The correspondence, which was released to the public on Tuesday, sparked backlash on social media.
