White House, CDC Preparing to Declare Victory Over COVID
Biden's admission to governors and the CDC's adjusted omicron numbers tell all
The government is about to declare the pandemic over. Expect it to happen before New Year’s.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, Biden has a small window to reverse his fortunes, and he seems to be taking advantage.
Here’s how I know:
Yesterday, Biden told the nation’s governors “there is no federal solution to COVID.”
The CDC drastically cut its estimate of omicron’s prevalence from 73% to 59% this week, and from 73% to 22% last week.
Via the Gateway Pundit:
The CDC is now claiming Delta, not Omicron, was the dominant variant in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
I explained the Biden comment earlier today:
But the more interesting—and more convincing—data point is the CDC’s updated estimate of omicron dominance. It tells me the CDC (and the official public health industry) is going to emphasize omicron’s mildness after weeks of denying, or, at least, downplaying it.
Why, you might ask, would the CDC do this?
The CDC would only play up omicron’s mildness if it planned to declare the pandemic over.
Everyone one knows that the delta variant has been dominant since early summer, and everyone knows delta causes very serious infections in some people. Everyone also knows that omicron is rapidly-spreading new variant that has taken the northeast by storm. The CDC, Fauci, doctors, and others have been fear-porning over omicron to keep up the narrative that things are about to get worse and to justify draconian mandates.
For the last two weeks, the CDC overstated omicron’s prevalence which made the strain look as virulent as delta. Hospitalizations and deaths were still at pre-omicron levels, so if omicron was responsible for 73 percent of cases, then omicron must be dangerous.
But something changed.
