Moderna ‘conspiracy’ based on spoof

To the Editor:

My, my, my. BJ Warner must have chugged the whole jug of Kool-Aid (letter on Aug. 29).

Anthony Fauci received his medical degree from Cornell in 1966 and interned at New York Hospital/Cornell Medical, so he is a real, honest-to-God doctor.

Moderna is involved in drug development and vaccines based on RNA, which is the DNA “messenger” molecule. Such vaccines are an alternative to live virus-based treatments.

There is a good reason BJ did not find any reference to his latest screed in the “mainstream media.” Dr. Fauci has no connection to Moderna. The conspiracy theory BJ swallowed is from a spoof, which also linked Bill Gates, George Soros and Jeffrey Epstein to the company. Snopes.com rates this as categorically false.

Also, the comparison with Josef Mengele is not only unwarranted, it is what is called a false equivalency. It is like saying, “You know who else was a paper hanger? Adolph Hitler!”
