Now that the CDC has declared mass COVID testing unnecessary, Democrats say ‘don’t trust the experts’
The experts, the media, and other Democrats are so consistent in their response to COVID-19.
Now that the CDC sensibly says that people with no symptoms don’t need COVID tests, we are told by the brilliant New York governor Andrew Cuomo and others that we shouldn’t trust the experts.
Andrew Cuomo: New CDC Coronavirus Guidance ‘Political Propaganda’“I consider [CDC guidance] political propaganda,” Cuomo said Wednesday. “I would caution private companies against following the CDC guidance.”In the past, Cuomo has encouraged people in New York to adhere to past CDC workplace testing guidance. But the CDC tweaked its testing guidelines on Monday saying that people without coronavirus symptoms “do not necessarily need a test” if they were exposed to the virus.The New York Times is no better. It claims that the CDC changed its guidance because of pressure from Trump.
I would ask Cuomo, the New York Times, and others when we have ever tested people with no symptoms for other viruses such as the seasonal flu. The answer, as far as I can tell, is never, so why for this one?Maybe someday the CDC will stop the propaganda of counting any death remotely associated with COVID-19 as caused by COVID-19. It appears that the numbers are goosed to scare the public.Think of how many fewer positive cases there would be if we counted only people with symptoms as we would normally. The U.S. rate for positives is less than two percent of the population as it is. What if we didn’t double- or triple-count people who continually test positive until they get a negative to go back to work?Dr. Deborah Birx said in May that she didn’t trust numbers from the CDC. Remember this?
‘There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust,’ Dr. Deborah Birx said. Feared CDC’s statistics on mortality rate and case counts inflated by up to 25%.
So why should we?
Should we trust the WHO, which said in January that the virus wouldn’t spread human to human, or should we believe the people there now with all their dire predictions?
Should we trust Dr. Anthony Fauci, who said throughout January, February, and early March that COVID-19 wasn’t very dangerous in the U.S., or should we trust him now with his dire predictions?
Should we trust the CDC and WHO when they told us in March, after thousands of years of virus history, that we shouldn’t wear masks, or should we trust them now when they say that if all of us wear masks, the virus will soon be gone?
Should we trust any predictions from the CDC, which said in March that we would have millions of deaths and hundreds of thousands of cases, when its predictions were exponentially wrong?
Autumn is Coming
I like things like this. It delivers extra cool to a camp fire.
