It was an answer to a question that number of deaths were being exaggerated. IIRC she said just because you are positive for covid does not mean it will be counted as a covid death.
Lots of double-speak

Not a fair criticism of the two doctors.

Thanks for the correction. I've got no medical background, so all I've got is speculation. Does everything else add up, in your experience?
it's all speculation but it's very possible

ETA: not deleting this, because I said what I said. But I cannot find the supporting source, so I'm retracting this.

Fauci has said in interviews that what you hear him say in a WH press briefing is somewhere between the truth and what needs to be said to keep the administration happy.

It's not a criticism, just an acknowledgement of their reality. I don't envy them.

Source? Hard to believe that Trump would abide that.

There's this one, where he isn't quite as extreme: https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/03/i-m-going-keep-pushing-anthony-fauci-tries-make-white-house-listen-facts-pandemic#

Still looking for the other one.

I seen that one and you need to keep looking because that one does not support what you posted. Take your time.  :)

That one just says that things are intentionally said in those briefings in ways they can be misconstrued, against Dr. Fauci's advice.

Where do you see that?

This does not sound like that:
Q: Youíve been in press conferences where things are happening that you disagree with, is that fair to say?
[/size]A:[/color][/size] [/color][/size]Well, I donít disagree in the substance. It is expressed in a way that I would not express it, because it could lead to some misunderstanding about what the facts are about a given subject.[/color]

Your statement was about Dr Fauci. We know the press conferences is 90+% lies from Trump.

I can't find the interview, so I'm going to retract what I said.

I also "mis-spoke" in saying "what you hear him say in a WH press briefing." It should have said "what you hear said in a WH press briefing," which I believe is a much less controversial statement.

Earlier in the interview, he says that his wording gets shot down at the pre-briefing meetings. I take that to mean there are ways of saying things in a clear way to avoid misunderstandings, and the WH purposely chooses to use alternative wording that can lead to "facts being misunderstood."
