CDC finally recognizes right of “individuals” to make their own health choices – no more forced covid vaccinations or quarantines
New guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has put an end to mandatory Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccination” – at least as far as the CDC is concerned.
No longer is the CDC urging or trying to force everyone in the “herd” to get jabbed. From now on, it is up to the individuals to make the choice for themselves without the government telling them what to do.
Entitled “Guidance for Minimizing the Impact of Covid-19,” the CDC’s new release, as explained by NPR, includes the following recommendations:
- Those exposed to the virus are no longer required to quarantine.
- Unvaccinated people now have the same guidance as vaccinated people.
- Students can stay in class after being exposed to the virus.
- It is no longer recommended to screen (test) those without symptoms.
Other new recommendations include only masking if you have been exposed to or tested “positive” for Chinese Germs, as well as official recognition by the CDC that a healthy person who is unvaccinated now has the same immunity as a fully jabbed person.
These changes represent a major deviation from what the CDC has been pushing up until, well, now. For the past two years, the CDC did not want anyone to appear in public unmasked. It also wanted everyone to be force-injected in order to live. (Related: At one point, there was talk about the CDC setting up covid “Green Zone” quarantine [concentration?] camps.)
Now, suddenly, the CDC is stressing the idea of individual decision-making when it comes to health. In fact, the CDC mentions the word individual some 10 different times in the new guidance.
“That is consistent with where we are in the pandemic right now,” says Dr. Marcus Plescia, chief medical officer for the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials. “I don’t really think there are many state or local jurisdictions that are feeling they’re going to need to start making mandates.”
CDC says almost everyone is now immune to covid – the plandemic is over
The CDC’s Greta Massetti further explained that the agency’s new position is that, vaccinated or unvaccinated, at least 95 percent of the general population is now fully immune to the Fauci Flu, and that no further tyranny is necessary.
“Based on the latest … data, it’s around 95 percent of the population,” she is quoted as saying. “And so, it really makes the most sense to not differentiate.”
One area of concern with the CDC’s new guidance is the recommendation that children at school be masked rather than quarantined after being so-called “exposed” to the virus.
“The practice of handling exposures would involve masking rather than a quarantine,” Massetti said about how children in K-12 should be handled.
Massetti stopped short of declaring the plandemic to be over in the same way this writer is, but she did essentially declare it to be over in so many words – at least as far as everyday life is concerned.
“This guidance acknowledges that the pandemic is not over, but also helps us move to a point where Covid-19 no longer severely disrupts our daily lives,” Massetti said. “We know that Covid-19 is here to stay.”
Truthfully, there never should have been any disruption in the first place. While it is great that the CDC is backing off from medical fascism, the damage is already done in the form of economic devastation, lost lives and livelihoods, and broken supply chains.
“How many poor souls could have been saved if this happened from the beginning?” asked a commenter. “The lawyers stand to make billions on this in lawsuits.”
The CDC stopped recommending quarantines or test-to-stay in schools. It’s part of a relaxation of COVID guidance that acknowledges the virus is here to stay, and that many people have prior immunity
LEILA FADEL, HOST:
Americans are getting new advice on how to live with COVID-19.
A MARTINEZ, HOST:
Yeah. On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention relaxed some of its guidance on what to do when you’ve been exposed to COVID and how schools handle the virus.
(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)
GRETA MASSETTI: Regardless of vaccination status, we are no longer recommending quarantine after an exposure.
MARTINEZ: That’s Greta Massetti, a top CDC official. Now, the aim is to simplify COVID rules, as many states have already done.
FADEL: NPR health reporter Pien Huang joins us now to discuss. Good morning, Pien.
PIEN HUANG, BYLINE: Good morning, Leila.
FADEL: So what exactly is the CDC changing?
HUANG: Well, a few key things. As you just heard, the CDC is no longer recommending quarantine for people who get exposed to the virus. Remember, that’s when you’ve just been around someone who gets COVID, but you yourself don’t have any symptoms. So they’re saying in that situation, you should mask, but so long as you feel fine, you can go about your life. And that’s a change they’re bringing into schools as well. So now there’s no need to quarantine or take special measures unless you’re actively sick. So that effectively means they’re ending what’s known as test to stay, which was a strategy where kids who got exposed to COVID could still go to school if they tested negative. Now no tests are needed so long as they’re feeling fine. And this, along with a few other changes, shows that the CDC just doesn’t think it’s important or practical to keep finding asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic cases. With this guidance as well, they’re not giving different advice anymore for vaccinated and unvaccinated people. What they’re focusing on instead is isolating people who are actively sick and stopping serious illness.
FADEL: What’s been the reaction to these changes?
HUANG: Well, it’s mixed. I mean, dealing with COVID in schools has been controversial, and some worry that this is going too far. But overall, the reaction skews towards positive. Many people told me that this makes sense given where we’re at. Dr. Marcus Plescia from the Association for State and Territorial Health Officials says that the new CDC guidance shifts the burden towards individuals figuring out their own levels of risk and how they want to deal with it.
MARCUS PLESCIA: And I think that is consistent because where we are with the pandemic right now, I don’t really think there are many state or local jurisdictions that are feeling that they’re going to need to start making mandates about, you know, social interactions and wearing masks.
HUANG: And he says that that’s how public health deals with flu. Every year, they encourage people to get vaccinated. They give tips on how to avoid getting it or spreading it. But they’re not closing schools down or requiring mask wearing to stop every case.
FADEL: OK. But this is a big change. How did the CDC justify relaxing its COVID rules?
HUANG: Well, they said that we’re in a place where most people in the U.S. have at least some protection from the virus. Here’s Greta Massetti, the senior CDC official, again.
(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)
MASSETTI: High levels of population immunity due to vaccination and previous infection, and the many available tools to protect the general population and protect people at higher risk, allow us to focus on protecting people from serious illness from COVID-19.
HUANG: About 95% of people in the U.S. have either gotten vaccinated or have recovered from COVID or both. Still, we know that doesn’t mean you can’t catch the virus, just hopefully that you’ll have a mild case. So Massetti said that there’s booster shots, antivirals, special shots for the immunocompromised. There are several layers out there that can help stop many people from getting hospitalized or dying from COVID.
FADEL: NPR’s Pien Huang, thank you.
HUANG: You’re welcome.
