The noble lie is not noble, it's just a lie.
NY health official admits the released that scary alert about increasing pediatric hospitalizations not because there's an actual issue, but just to "motivate" parents to vaccinate kids. https://twitter.com/KeepSchoolOpen/status/1475893919422496775?t=IeEjEpZcEAe_jpZBaCkjLg&s=19
Fauci started this crap by making up shit abut herd immunity. When you start fudging numbers to motivate people, you start destroying public trust. At this point, I don't trust any public health official with numbers. Like a high-school sophomore, they need to show their work, with footnotes.
