Does the Covid-19 virus care how people behave? The CDC’s latest guidance on isolation and quarantine periods act like it does.

In an appearance on CNN, CDC Director Rachelle Walensky said that her agency reduced the recommended quarantine time for those infected with Covid in part due to human behavior.

“It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate,” Walensky told fill-in host Kaitlin Collins.

“And so we really want to make sure that we had guidance in this moment  where we were going to have a lot of disease  that could be adhered to, that people were willing to adhere to and that spoke specifically to when people were maximally infectious.”

President Biden’s top medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, made similar comments last week, saying they didn’t “want so many people out” as Omicron cases surge dramatically across the United States.

Walensky found herself on the receiving end of ire from both liberals and conservatives following her interview on CNN, with liberals saying she is acting reckless and trying to appease corporations who are short on staff, while conservatives pointed out that when Trump made the same argument last year he was accused of prioritizing profits over people.

  1. Actually, this is exactly the type of law making we need. The right balance between safety and freedom. Like most things, there is no one size fits all answer. To balance all the factors and come to something reasonable and safe for all is commendable.

  2. Whats “stunning”…this balancing goes on all the time. Omicron is different from Delta. You cannot keep the much larger numbers of the workforce who will contract the new variant in quarantine for 10 days when they are asymptomatic. Its not rocket science.

  3. a balance by a person making no sense is not a balance.

    She said, we are seeing mild or asymptomatic cases, especially amongst vaccinated and unvaccinated people.
    There are literally no other options. What she said makes no sense, any one with common sense would understand that. She could have just said, ” we are seeing asymptomatic cases.”
    Which is not news, we already know that there is such a concept as asymptomatic. She is literally saying nothing of substance.

  4. This is what Chazal have said many times, calling it a Gezeira she’Ein ha’TZibor Yecholim la’Amod Bo. Also, Tafasta Meruba Lo Tafasta. So, yes – good for them. Seichel Tov. Stunning, I guess, in terms of Chochma ba’Goyim?

  5. Fauci and Walensky are so entangled in their lying narrative that there’s no hope for their extrication. They’re getting deeper and deeper mired in a bottomless abyss.
