Don’t take COVID advice from new Fed website

The White House just unveiled a brand new website — COVID.gov – to help people “find COVID guidance”. Trouble is, throughout the pandemic, the FBI’s cruel advice has kept Uncle Sam on the last Point of contact for orientation.

Check out the latest big news from the CDC: their move to a “community-level” metric. Rules for masking interiors. That shift — right, but long overdue — was prompted not by a change in the science surrounding COVID, but by the fact that mask mandates had become a politically disastrous issue for Democrats.

And the agency quiet did not update his absurd guide, the kids in pre-k, literally the lowest risk group on the planet for COVID should be required to mask “regardless of vaccination status”.

Speaking of schools, consider the CDC’s dismal record on closures. Even after months of data, it showed that 1) COVID was never a real risk for school-age children unless they have serious comorbidities and 2) Schools are not major transmission routes, The agency has still been slow to meet its reopening guidelines, largely at the behest of teachers’ unions (another dem powerhouse). New reporting even reveals that the United Federation of Teachers did in fact influence the language of the guidelines themselves “line by line”.

The Food and Drug Administration, meanwhile, ordered a disastrous “pause” for Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine. Following the miraculous arrival of not one, but three COVID vaccines in the US market in an unprecedented time, the FDA stepped on the J&J jab because of concerns about an extremely rare side effect in only six cases out of 7 million doses administered.

Vaccine uptake had been rising steadily before the break; after that it crashed.

Heck, even Supreme Court Justices managed to misunderstand the basic facts of COVID. Judge Sonia Sotomayor proposed that “over 100,000 children” were hospitalized with COVID during the Omicron wave. (About 7,900 under 18s in total have been in hospital for COVID since March 2020.)

When it comes to the COVID rules – and the science behind them – the federal government has demonstrated a mix of brutal incompetence and political opportunism that has hurt millions in ways that may prove irreparable.

Anyone accepting suggestions from COVID.gov does so at their own risk.
