For months, President Biden has characterized the continued spread of the coronavirus as a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” and repeatedly claimed that vaccinated people cannot spread the virus, contradicting what his own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been saying since at least April. …
“CDC expects that anyone with Omicron infection can spread the virus to others, even if they are vaccinated or don’t have symptoms,” the CDC said Dec. 20.
Despite the agency clearly stating since at least April that the virus can spread among vaccinated individuals, Biden has repeatedly tried to assign blame to unvaccinated people for the ongoing pandemic.
Like much of the postmodern left, Biden is unconstrained by the truth.
Meanwhile, the U.S. recorded its record number of COVID-19 cases for a single day on Monday, almost doubling the previous record of about 590,000 set just four days earlier. This, despite 73% of the U.S. population being at least partially vaccinated and 62% fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.
Notably, the surge in cases has not translated into skyrocketing deaths, though hospitalizations are currently on the rise.
Beware: it takes a week or two after infection to be hospitalized, and a week or two after that to die. The bulk of the hospitalizations and deaths due to the omicron surge have not occurred yet. We don’t know how harmful omicron is, yet.
