UNREAL: Faulty Coronavirus Tests Sent to States by CDC Were 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.”
A possible reason for the CDC’s ineffectiveness may have been their excessive focus on political correctness. Instead of focusing on mitigating pandemics, they were devoting resources toward promoting social justice.
Big League Politics reported on the revolting developments at the CDC last month:
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has come under fire for their handling of the coronavirus pandemic and examining what they devote their limited resources toward shows that the anger that has developed toward the bureaucracy is well-deserved.
Journalist Daniel Greenfield noted in Front Page Mag that the CDC has focused on liberal causes du jour rather than their mandate of actually keeping Americans safe from legitimate public health crises.
Greenfield noted that one of the social justice causes that have been pushed by the CDC are unconstitutional gun control schemes.
Last year, the federal budget gave $25 million for the CDC to split with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to come up with psuedo-scientific gun control schemes. This satisfied a request from liberals to study gun control as a public health crisis as a way to undermine the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
“The significance of this is huge,” said Mark Rosenberg, a gun control advocate who used the CDC to push for gun control before Republicans defunded such research in the 1990s. “For 20 years, the government has not sought answers using science to this horrendous public health crisis.”
Greenberg also pointed to other boondoggles the CDC has funded, including a state-of-the-art $106 million visitor’s center replete with Japanese gardens, a gym facility costing $200K, and a beauty pageant for transgender individuals.
“The occasional outbreak only calls the CDC’s general incompetence to everyone’s attention. The rest of the time its incompetence, like that of other government agencies, just ticks along wasting money,” Greenberg wrote.
A program implemented by former President Bill Clinton illustrates the failure of the CDC’s SJW central planning. He unveiled his National Plan to Eliminate Syphilis in 1999, in what was supposed to be a legacy project for his administration. Despite the money that was spent on his plan – which was framed around fighting back against racism – syphilis rates reached an all-time high in the year of 2018.
The federal bureaucracy, sometimes colloquially referred to as “the swamp,” has failed miserably throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
