6-Foot Social Distancing Rule During COVID Not Based On Scientific Evidence, Ex-NIH Director Testifies

Posted on 5/18/2024 by with 0 comments

Newly released testimony from Dr. Francis Collins, the former Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) who helped lead America’s COVID-19 pandemic response, indicates that there was a lack of scientific evidence for the six-foot social distancing rule that was a key fixture of COVID-19 restrictions.

In the interview, Dr. Collins was asked about a range of issues, including the hypothesis that the COVID-19 pandemic was the result of a lab leak or lab-related accident, and the six-foot social distancing rule that was one of the hallmarks of pandemic-era curbs on freedom of movement and assembly.

At one point in the interview, the committee majority counsel made reference to a January interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, who said that the six-foot distancing rule “sort of just appeared” and was likely not based on any data.

“We asked Dr. Fauci where the six feet came from and he said it kind of just appeared, is the quote,” the majority counsel on the committee told Dr. Collins, per the transcript of the interview. “Do you recall science or evidence that supported the six-feet distance?”

Dr. Collins replied, “I do not.”
