DÉJÀ VU: CDC Director Walensky says we only need a "couple of weeks" of new mask guidelines and increased vaccinations to slow the delta variant

Jul 28th

Frankly, I stopped listening to the CDC about 399 days ago, but for those interested:

Dr. Rochelle Walensky says new mask-wearing guidance, coupled with higher rates of vaccination against COVID-19, could halt the current escalation of infections in "a couple of weeks."

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told "CBS This Morning" she hopes more stringent mask-wearing guidelines and other measures won't be necessary as the country heads into the fall.

"We can halt the chain of transmission," she said. "We can do something if we unify together, if we get people vaccinated who are not yet vaccinated, if we mask in the interim, we can halt this in just a matter of a couple of weeks."

Yeah, people were a bit suspicious about the whole "couple of weeks" and we're all in this "together" thing now that we're in Year 2 of slowing the spread.

Meanwhile, the CDC is recommending that millions of kids wear masks all day at school, regardless of the fact that only 401 of the nation's 75-80 million kids have died from the 'Rona.

For our Big Tech censors out there (I know you love your jobs), let me link directly to a BBC fact check in the UK where they discuss how 25 people under 18 have died in their nation, and that 19 of those 25 "had some kind of chronic health condition and most were aged 10 or older."

Conclusion: There are a lot of things I'm worried could kill my kids, but the 'Rona isn't even in the top 100.

Still:
