Dr. Anthony Fauci wants the United States to go easy on China and stop being “accusatory” about the communist nation’s role in covering up the origins, spread, and data related to COVID-19.

Despite the East Asian country’s track record of lying and fudging the numbers about the deadly virus, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director is still quick to give China the benefit of the doubt more than a year into the pandemic.

“I mean, it’s obviously in China’s interest to find out exactly what it is, and the ‘is’ of the natural theory would be to find that link, so you have to keep looking for it,” Fauci said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday.

The medical adviser admitted that “we need better access to all the information” but chose to defend China and warn the United States against being “accusatory.”

“I mean, obviously you want openness and cooperation. One of the ways you can get it is don’t be accusatory. Try to get both a forensic, a scientific, and an investigational approach,” Fauci said. “I think the accusatory part about it is only going to get them to pull back even more. We’ve got to do it in a combination of diplomacy, scientific, forensic investigation, and do it in a way that the people of good faith, not who wanted to blame, but people in good faith are really trying to find out what the origin is.”

Fauci, whose expertise is supposed to be immunology, not foreign policy, said the United States and China are both doing “a lot of pointing of fingers” but need to “keep an open mind and go after the truth.”
