At one point, Walensky tries to tie school re-openings to community spread. That’s more anti-scientific nonsense. If community spread is the barometer, then students are safer in schools with mitigation, not being out in a community with high spread rates. That should seem obvious to anyone with a brain, but the Biden administration and their subservients at the CDC are showing they lack such.
Meanwhile, thousands of schools, including nearly every school in many Southern states, are open and doing just fine. The doomsday tales of increased risk and spread have not materialized. You don’t need any more “studies” or ridiculous guidelines. One only has to pay attention to the data actual reality is producing. But the CDC isn’t doing that, instead releasing politically motivated restrictions that would keep almost every school in the country still closed.
After Walensky’s performance, though, things got much worse. This morning, news broke that the CDC had admitted their guidelines were politically influenced, including by the teachers’ unions.
