The New York Times has confirmed (with its sources) that the CDC is expected to recommend on Tuesday that people vaccinated for the coronavirus resume wearing masks indoors under certain circumstances, reversing a decision made just two months ago.

As recently as last week, an agency spokesman said that the C.D.C. had no plans to change its guidance, unless there were a significant change in the science. The CDC plans to provide a media update on the pandemic at 3pmET.

“I think that’s great,” said Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease specialist at Bellevue Hospital Center in New York.

Based on what scientists are learning about the Delta’s variant’s ability to cause breakthrough infections, she said, “this is a move in the right direction.”

Well, we are happy someone is pleased that the nation is taking a step back towards Einsteinian insanity.

Maybe this time it will work?

Babylon Bee summed things up perfectly…

  1. Dr Fauci and the CDC are always as truthy as they can be, given the circumstances.
    They have bungled their response in every possible way and now have the credibility of a jonesing crack Ho.

    That said, N95 masks or better can protect you from Aerosols if properly worn.
    Delta is a shitload more transmissible but the short term effects seem to be somewhat less nasty than the Wuhan strain.
    This virus mutates in every host, more hosts, more mutations.
    Other than a tendency to become more successful in replicating ( More transmittable), which most novel viruses manage to do there is no way to predict the eventual morbidity or mortality.

    maybe we’ll get lucky and maybe we won’t but expecting anything like honesty or competence on the part of the CDC is unrealistic.

    • “Other than a tendency to become more successful in replicating ( More transmittable), which most novel viruses manage to do there is no way to predict the eventual morbidity or mortality.”

      I had thought the general trend was to become less lethal over time, as diseases that kill the host quickly, or the host population thoroughly, tend to impede their own survival as well.

      But I don’t have a reference either way.
