“San Francisco is on track to see another year marked by a staggering number of drug overdoses as the city’s dire drug epidemic, fueled by the powerful painkiller fentanyl, continues.
In January and February, the city recorded 135 overdose deaths, compared to 81 people in the same time frame last year, according to a new report from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.”
Drug overdose claimed almost three times as many lives in San Francisco last year as Covid 19 did. I think we need a commission to study if the drug overdose spike was caused by draconian lockdowns imposed on California residents by the king of California Gavin Newsom. Some may suspect that the cure was worse than the problem.
Some might even say that the San Francisco drug overdose epidemic qualifies as a public health crisis. Would that be a correct statement, Dr. Fauci? Maybe it would be even more of a public health crisis than gun violence?
Dr. Anthony Fauci on whether he considers gun violence a public health emergency: “When you see people getting killed, I mean, in this last month, it’s just been horrifying what’s happened. How can you say that’s not a public health issue?” #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/9lEhV3aZqL

Did you pipe up in the room when Joe ended the Trump administration’s opioid prescription treatment expansion plan Dr. Fauci? Did I miss your diatribe on COVID and the homeless crisis in San Francisco on CNN?
Everybody knows that “you are not a political person.” You are an epidemiologist, and that is why you consider gun control your area of expertise. Strictly from the science perspective, of course. But drug overdoses? Oh no, that is way above your pay grade. You consider it your duty to lecture us on gun control, but you won’t advise Joe Biden that his open border policy will likely kill a lot more people in the near future than Andrew Cuomo’s Covid policies ever did.
And that calls for an Emmy nomination for Joe Biden. And another million-dollar prize for you, Dr. Fauci.
