Apparently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has retracted important information about the spread of the virus. The U.S is currently dealing with 200.000 deaths from the virus, and the cases keep rising in 28 states.
Dr. Peter Hotez, who is the dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, said that we might be dealing with an apocalyptic fall. “And it’s happening because we’re forcing schools to reopen in areas of high transmission. We’re forcing colleges to reopen, and we don’t have the leadership nationally, telling people to wear masks and to social distance and do all the things we need to do.”
Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo also came in support of this idea due to a number of reasons. The first one, according to her, is general fatigue. People are getting really tired of the entire situation. The second thing is represented by all the contradictory messages that we’re getting – confusion is misinformation about the spread of the virus.
CDC has stated that you can get the virus by inhaling tiny particles from the breath of an infected person: “There is growing evidence that droplets and airborne particles can remain suspended in the air and be breathed in by others, and travel distances beyond 6 feet. In general, indoor environments without good ventilation increase this risk.” It seems that doctors were aware of this for many months – and this is why they’re asking us to wear a mask. Dr. Peter Hotez said that this update should have come last May.
It seems that the CDC has removed the update at the beginning of the week.
