CDC Warns COVID-19 ‘Pandemic is Not Over’ and Strict Shutdown Policies May Need to Come Back
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are continuing their fear-mongering about the coronavirus pandemic, desperately trying to dissuade Americans from living their lives.
“Right now, communities are experiencing different levels of transmission occurring, as they gradually ease up onto the community mitigation efforts and gradually reopen,” the CDC’s deputy director for infectious diseases, Jay Butler, said to reporters during a press briefing on Friday.
“If cases begin to go up again, particularly if they go up dramatically, it’s important to recognize that more mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” he added.
Butler emphasized that the “pandemic is not over” and urged localities to re-institute Draconian shutdown policies based on “what is happening within the community regarding disease transmission.”
The CDC has displayed an extreme amount of incompetence throughout the pandemic, which has destroyed their credibility and made them into a national laughingstock.
Big League Politics reported in April on how the CDC’s coronavirus tests sent out to states were actually tainted with coronavirus:
Federal officials have now confirmed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sent faulty coronavirus tests to states throughout the country that were actually tainted by the highly-infectious disease.
The CDC is blaming “a problem in the manufacturing of one of the reagents” on the colossal public safety failure. They even admitted in a statement to the New York Times that they “did not manufacture its test consistent with its own protocol,” but now claim that they have “implemented enhanced quality control to address the issue and will be assessing the issue moving forward.”
However, the damage is done because it took the CDC a month to fix the problem. Over the crucial period between February and March, these faulty tests were distributed across the country. The mind-boggling incompetence from the alleged experts prevented states from preventing the coronavirus outbreak, which led to the total lockdown of the society that may result in a new great depression.
“It was just tragic,” said Scott Becker, who works as executive director of the Association of Public Health Laboratories, to the Times. “All that time when we were sitting there waiting, I really felt like, here we were at one of the most critical junctures in public health history, and the biggest tool in our toolbox was missing.”
The CDC, and their globalist counterparts at the World Health Organization (WHO), have failed the world and continue to double down on their lies because it is the only way for them to save face at this point.
