And the data tells us this was always a virus that threatened a very narrow part of the population. In its most virulent form, 99+ percent of us had more to fear from the political manipulation of treatment options than the virus. How many tens of thousands died because the CDC’s false science drove a political narrative that denied people care that would have saved their lives?
The CDC is an acronym for The Centers for Disease Control. Instead of originating with an agency that should be focused on fungi, viruses, and bacteria, shouldn’t such a policy come from a more appropriate department? Say perhaps… oh, I don’t know… maybe the Department of Housing and Urban Development?
We rose to the occasion with the “fifteen days to slow the spread.” We never overwhelmed the hospitals. We stayed in our houses and worked from home, and some of us even obeyed those idiotic one-way traffic shopping lanes at supermarkets in order to socially distance and protect the elderly from getting sick. But that’s done now, it’s over.
