(RoyalPatriot.com )- Kaitlan Collins, a left-wing news anchor for CNN, recently challenged Centers for Disease Control director Dr. Rochelle Walensky over the bizarre and sudden change to COVID-19 quarantine rules.
In December, the CDC shortened the amount of time that people are recommended to isolate or after testing positive for COVID-19, dropping the number of days for isolation from 10 to five.
If COVID-19 is a deadly and infectious disease, then why would the CDC literally halve the number of days they expect infected people to isolate for? And if isolating for 10 days is overkill and unnecessary, why was it recommended in the first place?
During a recent episode of CNN’s New Day, Collins asked Walensky why the decision was made and what information the CDC used to make the decision.
“If you map that out, those five days account for somewhere between 85 to 90 percent of all transmission that occurs,” Walensky explained. “So we really wanted to make sure that during those first five days you were spending in isolation, that’s when most of it occurs.”
Okay, so if the first five days are the most infectious, and that some 10% of people may still be spreading the virus after five days, why did the CDC change the rules if that still means people could be spreading a deadly disease?
Do those 10% not matter? Or are they finally admitting that COVID-19 is not as deadly as initially believed?
Collins asked Walensky if their decision was as much about protecting business as much as they were trying to protect people, to which Walensky responded:
“It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate.”
Walensky also said that they believe less than one third of people who should be isolating are actually doing so, suggesting that the CDC might finally have just admitted that people are sick of being told what to do.
Well, at least CNN asked some real questions for once.
