How Much Does The Government Really Know About Keeping Us Safe From Covid-19?

Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Sunday that there was “a lack of rigor” in how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention created its initial guidance on Covid-19, specifically calling out the 6-feet social distancing rule as “arbitrary.”

 

“The six feet was arbitrary in and of itself,” Gottlieb said during an interview on CBS’ Face the Nation. “But if the administration had focused in on that, they might have been able to effect a policy that would have actually achieved their outcome. But that policy-making process didn’t exist, and the six feet is a perfect example of sort of the lack of rigor around how CDC made recommendations.”

 

He went on to say “nobody knows where it came from.” “Most people assume that the six feet of distance, the recommendation for keeping six feet apart, comes out of some old studies related to flu, where droplets don’t travel more than six feet,” he said. “We now know Covid spreads through aerosols. We’ve known that for a while, so how operative is that?”

 

Gottlieb recounted that the CDC originally wanted to make the distancing recommendation 10-feet, but were told by a White House official that it would be “inoperable” and “society will shut down.”

    That is rewarding people for not getting the vaccine. It is wrong to deny it from the very small percentage of people who are vaccinated and still get a breakthrough of the virus they deserve it more than the people who won’t take the shot because of some crazy idea being passed around on Facebook

    Everyone should have access to treatment! These stupid shots we’re supposed to protect us and those around us. Now we are finding they protect nobody!
