If it wasn’t enough for you, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has changed its guidance once again, and the left is starting to lose its mind. The quarantine time has changed from 10 days to 5 days, and, interestingly, the left is beginning to push back against the COVID-19 narrative in the opposite way that conservatives have.
It’s a great day for any stubborn minded, rational thinking, data-driven human being to finally have such a large organization that’s held freedoms from the public and forced people to cover their faces and stay away from each other, back off and give in. take a moment to pat yourself on the back and know that your efforts weren’t in vain.
Now, this means a couple of different things, and you’ll figure out which one is the most accurate. The labor force has been dwindled because of the COVID-19 vaccine mandates, especially in healthcare, so much that it’s challenging to get people to show up. Since it’s not easy in the first place, COVID-19 outbreaks, even among the vaccinated, are happening more regularly because even the first-round draft of the vaccines has waned, and some people might even be choosing not to get the booster shot. When outbreaks occur, and with Omicron being spread much more rapidly, it’s causing many places to have worker shortages.
Next, the CDC and other agencies realize that they weren’t right to begin with, and they have to back off. President Joe Biden backed off his federal charge against COVID-19 and admitted there’s no federal solution to fight COVID-19. It could be in the White House’s direction that states can decide what measures to put in place.
Either of those answers is a win. At least there’s evidence to show that common sense may finally be prevailing.
It also turns out that businesses sway the CDC’s decisions. Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said, “With the rapid spread of the omicron variant, the 10-day isolation for those who are fully vaccinated may significantly impact our workforce and operations.”
Bastian then offered to partner with the CDC to collect empirical data. So, there you have it. The CDC isn’t even banking on the White House anymore. That has to sting the Democrats. They’re used to getting their way.
And, RedState reported, “CEO Ed Bastian’s annual bonus is tied to on-time performance, which has taken a huge hit because all of his staff are testing positive.”
Epidemiologist and Health Economist Eric Feigl-Ding suggested on Twitter that “Delta shouldn’t be able to lobby the CDC like this!!!”
Maybe he should jump on Congress’ shady stock trades before passing or voting against the legislation before he jumps on Delta for this move.
The left is also claiming that COVID-19 is going to be weaponized now. Someone should remind them who weaponized COVID-19 from the beginning.
