USA: New CDC guidelines strengthen Biden’s “corona-forever” policy

On August 11, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published new corona guidelines. The US health authority is thus largely doing away with the recommendation that exposed and infected people continue to follow measures such as quarantine, isolation and testing.

The changes are the latest in a long line of anti-science measures by the agency. Thus the Joe Biden administration is tightening its “corona forever” policy and forcing the American population to live with the virus.

CDC expert Greta Masetti, a co-author of the new guidelines, reiterated the July White House statement at a news conference, specifically stating that “Covid-19 is here to stay.”

The changes come amid a month-long wave of four different omicron subvariants, with the most dangerous being the ba.5 subvariant. On average, more than 100,000 people have been officially infected daily in the US for the past three months. The actual number is between 500,000 and one million. The number of daily deaths again exceeded 500 on an average of seven days.

At the same time, virtually no action is being taken to prevent an unprecedented global outbreak of monkeypox, despite the fact that in the United States alone more than 11,000 people, including at least eight children, have been infected.

The timing of CDC guidelines coincides with the start of the new school year. The guidelines are intended to provide a pseudoscientific guarantee that schools will remain open, no matter how big the wave of contagion. A year and a half ago in January 2021, Masetti participated in a panel discussion with economist Emily Oster, one of the leading advocates of school reopening to promote open schools. At the time, the vast majority of the US population was not even vaccinated. A few days later, Oster held a similar event with Jay Bhattacharya, co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration.

The health authority is now recommending that exposed people no longer go into quarantine. Contact tracing and surveillance tests should be avoided in most cases. While the guidelines still maintain a (arbitrarily set) five-day isolation period for those infected, they are now waiving their “test-to-stay” recommendation. (It encouraged exposed students to stay in school until they tested negative.) This recommendation was also unscientific from the start. But now the new guidelines do not recommend testing or quarantine measures for vulnerable students. Instead, according to Masetti, exposed people should only wear a mask.

The same day the guidelines were issued, Senator Bernie Sanders called on White House COVID-19 coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha. He advocated keeping schools open with the following words: “We must hope for a school year in which every child is in school, all day and all year. I think we are all capable of this and that is the only acceptable There should be a standard.” When Sanders made the absurd claim that “children don’t die from Covid-19,” Jha refrained from correcting him.

In fact, the CDC recorded more than 1,000 child deaths due to Covid-19 in the 2021-2022 school year. And this school year, some, though minimal, coronavirus protection was still present in Democratic Party-run school districts. This summer alone, more than 200 children have officially died of the virus. The number of children hospitalized at the height of the delta wave last September, even before schools could reopen.
