Skip to comments.Fauci Unfazed by Forecast Starvation [semi-satire]

The humanitarian group Oxfam's warning that the economic shutdowns imposed to combat the coronavirus may lead to more than 120 million additional people starving to death this year was brushed off by viral expert Dr. Anthony Fauci as "a false narrative. Look, millions of people starving to death each year is normal. The coronavirus is novel. It is incumbent that this novel threat remain the primary focus of world heath efforts."
"I am especially concerned about the rise in the number of confirmed cases that has followed the risky decision to allow nonessential businesses and activities to prematurely resume," the Doctor lamented. "I take little comfort in the declining fatality rates among those now testing positive for the virus. Those who recover without the benefit of the vaccine that Bill Gates and I have invested our efforts in promoting will undermine public faith in the science I have been preaching for the last six months. Even worse, a relapse into dependence on the sixty-year old hydroxychloroquine drug impinges on the financial incentives for developing more expensive and redundant alternative therapies."
Fauci saved his harshest criticism for President Trump, saying that "his eagerness to get back to normal runs the risk of throwing away much of what we have already accomplished. The level of obedience to autocratic dictates attained over the last few months has been astounding. The willingness of the average American to do as they are told is a significant breakthrough in our 'land of the free.' The skepticism of autocratic rule that would arise from a successful reopening of the economy will destroy the momentum of the fundamental transformation of this country that is now within our grasp."

I think Fauci’s rote answer to questions like this is “that’s outside my field, so therefore it’s irrelevant”.
Has the country already been divided up into Districts? If so, how do I find out which District I’m in and when do the Hunger Games begin?
A classic example of the danger of unconstrained scientific reductionism used to justify an evil agenda.
