On Monday, Townhall posted an article about the Biden administration’s latest statement about the coronavirus. The comment made by White House Wuhan Coronavirus Coordinator Jeff Zients is not only frightening, it is totally misleading.
The article reports:
“We are intent on not letting Omicron disrupt work and school for the vaccinated. You’ve done the right thing, and we will get through this,” White House Wuhan Coronavirus Coordinator Jeff Zients said during a recent press briefing. “For the unvaccinated, you’re looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families, and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm.”
That statement is totally misleading. Many Americans who have recovered from Covid have natural immunity. Many people who are vaccinated are not only coming down with Covid, they are also spreading the disease. The vaccines may (or may not–the jury is still out) lessen the severity of the symptoms. The vaccine does not prevent the disease or the spread of the disease.
The article at Townhall notes:
The statement from Zients is jarring, and given that vaccinated individuals also spread the disease, his remarks are unscientific. Further, doctors from South Africa and the UK have repeatedly said cases of the latest variant are mild among the vaccinated and unvaccinated. The variant is also not causing hospitals to be overwhelmed.
It is becoming obvious that the Biden White House is not interested in uniting Americans. When they can’t divide us along racial lines, they will divide us along vaccinated and unvaccinated lines. In either case, if we are focused on our differences, we won’t notice that our freedoms are being slowly taken away.
