The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its COVID-19 guidance to acknowledge the risk that the coronavirus can be transmitted through airborne respiratory particles — but then edited its website again Monday morning to take that information down, saying it was still being reviewed.
WHY? PRESSURE FROM HE WHO MUST BE OBEYED?
FROM CNN: In language posted Friday and now removed, CDC said Covid-19 most commonly spread between people who are in close contact with one another, and went on to say it’s known to spread “through respiratory droplets or small particles, such as those in aerosols, produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, sings, talks or breathes.”
SO WHAT DO THE SCIENTIST SAY?
Many researchers and doctors have said for months that coronavirus can be transmitted through small airborne viral particles. In July, 239 scientists published a letter that urged the World Health Organization and other public health organizations to be more forthcoming about the likelihood that people could catch the virus from droplets that were floating in the air.
TRUMP’S CDC IS PLACING AMERICANS IN A DANGEROUS SITUATION WITH THE POSITION THAT COVID IS NOT TRANSMITTED BY RESPIRATORY PARTICLES… WITH AN OBVIOUS RESULT.
NUMBER OF AMERICANS WHO HAVE DIED OF TRUMP FLU IS NOW 203,000.
THE CONSEQUENCE OF THE TRUMP CDC CURRENT POSITION ON COVID TRANSMISSION IS OBVIOUS.
CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook explained, “It may not be the main way it spreads, but there’s good evidence that the virus can spread through the air under certain circumstances at distances greater than 6 feet.”
The page still states that the virus is spread “through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks,” but the information about tiny airborne droplets, like those in aerosols, has been removed. The page also no longer lists breathing as a way to transmit the virus.
