(RoyalPatriot.com )- The proof is piling up that the American reaction to COVID, with Dr. Deborah Birx at the fore of policy, was a complete failure. The former White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator has since reverted to blaming a Chinese lab breach, claiming the virus “came out of the box ready to infect” more than two years after advocating lockdowns without any supporting data.
Political science has frequently come across as the driving force behind how the epidemic was handled. Some lines of inquiry were viewed as taboo and scientific research was flatly rejected if they didn’t fit the predominant narrative. Revisionists like Birx are trying to repair the harm already done, but the evidence is overwhelmingly against them.
Reports show that Birx blamed the Chinese government for hiding COVID’s virulence since it was already more infectious than the flu when it first arrived in the United States.
According to an interview with a media outlet, Birx’s reasoning was based on the virus’s asymptomatic spread, which China had not acknowledged. China implied they were controlling it, but she countered that asymptomatic spread couldn’t be controlled without testing.
Birx claimed that the world missed several months of preparedness because we believed there wasn’t human-to-human dissemination when there was.
Yet that conflicts with how she has presented the solution.
When defending the use of mandates in June, Birx stated that sometimes ‘we utilize mandates because we don’t want to take the time to explain the science and facts.’
Jeffrey Tucker of the Brownstone Institute noted in a critique of Birx’s new book that
She was too eager to impose regulations without having any available data for herself to support it.
Reports show that when BIrx saw that the “Fifteen Days to Slow the Spread” went unchallenged, she pressed ahead for more. That was just one of the dubious and unscientific methods used by government agencies to impose policies on the American people. Some experts at the National Institutes of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are leaving because of those methods. Others are leaving to cover their butts.
Dr. Anthony Fauci and other proponents of panic porn are pushing for the reinstatement of harsh regulations that have, at best, failed to stop the virus’s spread.
While Birx places the blame on China, others point out her responsibility for the immense harm lockdowns have done to the United States.
