Jul 31 - Public health expert: 'Biden absolutely declared a victory too soon'
 

 

Public health expert Leana Wen says “President Biden absolutely declared a victory too soon” in the government’s efforts to combat the coronavirus.

Wen, a former health commissioner for Baltimore, Md., told Yahoo News in an interview published Saturday that “the single biggest mistake” made by the Biden administration was the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) decision in May to drop its guidance that fully vaccinated people should wear masks indoors.

She said that because the CDC’s guidance did not require individuals to prove they had been vaccinated, “the unvaccinated began behaving like they were vaccinated.”


“And what did we see? We saw exactly what I and many public health experts predicted at the time. The honor code did not work. Surges have happened because of unvaccinated individuals. Now with the Delta variant restrictions are coming back, except nobody’s listening anymore,” she said.

“President Biden absolutely declared a victory too soon,” Wen continued, adding that she did appreciate the administration’s “exceptional” efforts when it came to vaccine supply and distribution.

In an op-ed published in The Washington Post on Thursday, Wen further argued that the CDC needed to clarify its messaging when it came to masks and emphasize that “the problem is the unvaccinated.”


Wen said it made sense to recommend asking people to mask up if they live with family members who may have compromised immune systems or are unvaccinated, given that they could be carriers of the coronavirus.

But she said that the CDC’s latest guidance issued on Tuesday, which recommends people wear mask indoors in areas with substantial COVID-19 spread, implied that the issue was with risks of COVID-19 transmission among vaccinated populations.

She noted that CDC Director Rochelle Walensky had already stated unvaccinated populations were mostly responsible for the high rates of transmission.

“The CDC is also trying to urge localities and businesses to reimplement indoor mask requirements given surging coronavirus infections. That’s the right policy, but it’s using the wrong explanation,” Wen wrote in her op-ed. “The vaccinated are not a major source of spread. Even if every vaccinated person puts on a mask, that’s not going to solve things when the vast majority of transmission is by the unvaccinated.”

Instead, she argued that the CDC should have announced, “We need a return to indoor mask mandates not because the vaccinated are suddenly a problem, but because we don’t trust the unvaccinated to voluntarily do the right thing.”

When asked by Yahoo News if the U.S. should start mandating the vaccine, she maintained that previous mandates have worked with other diseases and could help in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

“We know that vaccine mandates work for other childhood immunizations. We have laws in all 50 states that mandate vaccines. That's the reason why we don't have polio, why we don't have smallpox, why we have relegated many of these illnesses that used to k*ll so many children to the history books. We could do the same with COVID-19,” Wen said.

Exactly what the CDC and the White House should have said straight out the gate.

The sh*t they recommended was just stupid allowing the unvaccinated to run around with folks who were already vaccinated. It's the reason why we're in the situation we're in now and more than likely shut downs will probably start again in the fall.

Cdc really underestimated how irresponsible Americans are. We should have set the expectations this summer would be on "lockdown" as soft as it is. Get through the start of school then loosen the restrictions for next spring

Agreed. There’s no victory with illnesses.. reminds of GW Bush on that ship I have to say, it’s nice not hearing our president make an idiot out of himself with his words and Twitter. Biden is just another non promise keeping politician… normal bullsh*t

Agreed.

If they would have set some sort of structured guidelines from the beginning and cut back on some of the restrictions while making progress, it would have been cool then the more ppl got full vaccinated officials could have went on to say it's ok to fully re-open the country.

I myself, thought about maybe going back out during the fall season if this covid sh*t was under control but nope. The CDC, The White House, & state governments can't even get the un-vaxxed to protect themselves. So I'm good on running around w/a deadly strain much easier to catch and deadlier than the og strain of covid.

Well 6 months in office I wouldn't consider Biden a lame duck President just yet like Trump was during his tenue. If the Biden Administration deserves any blame it's the confusing messaging that they put out at times.

You got to remember that Biden still has got to deal w/Trump Republicans that are trying to do everything they can to sh*t on passing any of his ideas. It doesn't make things any better when you have two Democrats that are trying to block legislation as well.

There is no victory over any disease.
You just effectively learn to treat it and move on.

Half the population seems braindead now, looking for a zero covid like that is even possible.
