Oh? You can return to work even without a test showing you’re no longer covid-positive?
That’s a hell of change, isn’t it?
Not to worry, the CDC’s Rachel Wallensky says: This is a change based entirely on The Science,which apparently we just discovered after two years of experience with testing for covid.
The newly updated CDC guidelines don’t require testing at the end of isolation because PCR tests can stay positive for up to 12 weeks, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told “Good Morning America” Wednesday.
“So we would have people in isolation for a very long time if we were relying on PCRs,” Walensky said.
So people have been testing themselves with these PCR tests post-initial diagnosis for two years and this has been yielding false positives for up to 12 weeks post-infection, and no one bothered to say so until now?
What’s really going on here?
Oh, right: “The Science” is lying to us again. Or rather, The Politics: Brandon dropped the ball on ordering up an adequate supply of tests, and now we don’t have enough tests to test all the people who are about to get omicron.
So the CDC is telling people they don’t need to get tested post-infection, to reduce the need for tests that we don’t have because their boss is a senile incompetent.
And that’s “The Science” in action!
President Joe Biden is closing out his first year in office facing one of the same problems he entered the White House vowing to fix: a persistent shortage of Covid-19 testing that, if resolved, could provide a way out of the still-raging pandemic….Yet the failures surrounding testing have led to accusations that the White House failed to anticipate the pandemic’s course and overemphasized vaccinations as a solution to ending the crisis, even as outside experts warned of a looming test shortage directly to administration officials.
Biden’s team insists they took what steps they could in the fall to build up testing capacity but acknowledge that a surge in demand and relatively recent emergency use authorizations from the US Food and Drug Administration have made stockpiling at-home tests a challenge.
And the shortage of tests factored into the administration’s decision Monday not to recommend tests for individuals exposed to the virus to emerge from a shortened five-day quarantine, according to an official familiar with the discussions.
“If we require a test, people are going to say, ‘What if we can’t get a test?’ ” the senior administration official said, recounting internal deliberations on condition of anonymity. “Rather than letting the perfect be the enemy of the good,” the official said, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention opted for less stringent language, noting that “best practice would also include a test for SARS-CoV-2 at day 5 after exposure.”
Biden himself has frankly acknowledged that his efforts have fallen short, particularly in scaling up testing, even as he seeks to take credit for other aspects of fighting the pandemic.
“It’s clearly not enough. If I had — we had — known, we would have gone harder, quicker, if we could have,” Biden said in describing his testing efforts this week while meeting virtually with governors. “We have to do more. We have to do better, and we will.”
Other top health officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, the President’s top medical adviser, have similarly acknowledged the testing shortfalls in interviews. And White House press secretary Jen Psaki conceded last week that she could have provided more context when she dismissed the notion of sending tests to Americans just two weeks ago.
Actual scientists are perplexed by the Science Priests sudden new claims about what “The Science” scriptures are telling them, because this isn’t science at all, this is all politics and bureaucratic ass-covering and a lot of covering up for the failures of a Democrat.
They’re inventing made-up “science” to Manage Public Relations and to Reassure the Public that Brandon Knows What He’s Doing.
Public Relations — the highest form of The Science!
I know it hurts, just hang in there as more and more of the rotting carcass that calls itself science is revealed. Know that Tony Fauci is this science and gets away with this because of the position his wife holds. She is so ashamed she doesnt use her husbands name.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is married to Dr. Christine Grady. Grady, 69, is a nurse and bioethicist who is currently Chief of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center.
Bioethics? Like torturing little dogs and orphans kind of ethics? O Boy the money sure must be good.
HUGE. CDC Withdraws Use of PCR Test for COVID and Finally Admits the Test Can Not Differentiate Between the Flu and COVID Virus
CDC Director announced this in August. And yes, this means every test result since April, 2020 is fake and all the numbers were made up. Same with the deaths. Seasonal flu cases were down 74% in 2020/2021 because they were counted as COVID
Government, the cause and solution to all of life’s problems.
They caused panic over COVID using a fake test, forced millions to be vaccinated with an untested drug and now they say the test was fake, so we have no idea who had COVID. Now that millions are vaxxed and they have made hundreds of billions of dollars we have a new problem, the vaccines are killing people and each of these people can potentially spread a virus, so the government will need to provide a new solution. Another vaccine anyone?
CDC got a new set of moving goal posts for Christmas.
I heard they were also coal powered.
Didn’t honest, genius, faithful, credible Saint Fauci pull the same bait and switch with masks? Masks are vital… no, wait, there’s not enough masks (because Obama used them all up and didn’t bother to order more… hmmm, a recurring theme), so masks are unimportant… uh oh, people are forgetting to be terrified of the virus so everyone should wear masks to advertise that they are on death’s doorstep… that kind of carnival barking?
My God, these people are incompetent. All they can do is make speeches; they can never follow through with any action. How difficult is it to order test kits? They’ve ordered them before, the purchase order is in a computer somewhere. Change the amount and submit a new one. But, this is the idiot Biden government; no one is tasked, no one is held to account, no one is responsible for anything. As I’ve said, this entire regime moves at the speed of the leader, which is motionless.
I guess idiot Biden needs someone whose sole duty is to sweep up all the balls that have been dropped so no one trips on them. DAMN! What a gang of morons! Perhaps the only thing that can get to Trump is him having to watch such incompetence without being able to fire the entire useless batch.
French tennis player Benoit Paire has revealed he has tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of next month’s Australian Open.
That sounds more like a way to eliminate him from competition when you consider:
1. He’s fully vaxxed.
2. This is his 250th positive test for covid.
3. He’s been eliminated from the US Open/Aussie Open and other tournaments.
4. He feels totally healthy.
The “test” can’t differentiate between covid, the flu or a cold.
the pedophile and his handlers want to “lower the bar” on everything. The microcosm of the cowardly, narcissistic, prideful, and nihilistic behavior has become the mainstream trends of the this low class administration. the heterogeneous composition of the current admin., is of an menial
mentality and represent a primitive type of being of a less intellect. “lowering the bar” lowers expectations and outcomes of a lesser quality; therefore, do not expect much from the governments that governs. NOW, you have become the slave of the government.
