Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and top pundit of Dr. Anthony Fauci, took to Twitter late Thursday to accuse the top disease specialist of altering his message with regards to COVID-19 hospitalizations during the Biden administration.

Fauci clarified that there is a distinction between the number of youngsters hospitalized with COVID as opposed to “because of COVID.”

“What’s more what we mean by that: If a youngster goes into the hospital, they automatically get tested for COVID and they get counted as a COVID-hospitalized individual, when, truth be told, they might go in for a messed-up leg or appendicitis or something to that effect. So it’s over counting the number of youngsters who are, quote, hospitalized with COVID as opposed to because of COVID,” Fauci said.

Fauci’s comments came later a record surge of youngsters in the U.S. being “hospitalized with COVID.” During the seven days stretch of Dec. 22-28, a normal of 378 youngsters 17 and under were conceded each day to hospitals with the coronavirus, a 66% increase from the prior week.

The Associated Press announced that youngsters continue to represent a small number of cases due to COVID-19.

Cruz’s tweet comes all at once that the Biden administration faces new criticism about its treatment of the coronavirus outbreak. Critics say Biden crushed previous President Trump because he promised to assume responsibility for the virus but he conceded this week that there is “no government solution.”

“This gets solved at a state level… .and it ultimately gets down to where the rubber meets the street and that is the place where the patient needs assistance, or forestalling the need of help,” Biden said.

The Wall Street Journal’s publication board called attention to that Biden, as the 2020 presidential competitor, vowed “to shut down the virus, not the country.”
