CDC director 'really worried' about states rolling back Covid safety measures as U.S. cases appear t

Source: CNBC

The head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday that she is “really worried” about some states rolling back public health measures intended to contain the coronavirus pandemic as U.S. cases appear to be leveling off at a “very high number.”

The declines in Covid-19 cases seen since early January now appear to be stalling at around 70,000 new cases per day, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during a White House news briefing. “With these statistics, I am really worried about more states rolling back the exact public health measures we have recommended to protect people from Covid-19.”

“Seventy thousand cases a day seems good compared to where we were just a few months ago,” she said. “Please hear me clearly: At this level of cases with variants spreading, we stand to completely lose the hard-earned ground we have gained.”

The U.S. is recording at least 67,300 new Covid-19 cases each day, based on a seven-day average calculated by CNBC using Johns Hopkins University data. The U.S. peaked at close to 250,000 cases per day in early January following the winter holidays.

1. And globally, daily new cases are on the rise again,

from 359,762 reported daily new cases on Feb 20 to 383,724 on Feb 27 -- an increase of 6.7%. Though it's a relatively tiny upturn compared to the decline from the January 11   739,428 peak. Still, it's troublesome. (All three numbers are trailing 7 day moving averages)

Back in the U.S., a lot of states have rising daily new cases again

3. "But I'm tired of not going to my latte, restaurant, yoga, gym, latte, and having my kids home!!11!"

The US is chock full of weak pansies. If this had been the mettle of Americans 70 years ago, we'd all be speaking German.

4. Americans have taught this virus everything it needs to survive

And now it is shape-shifting into a more contagious state. We will need boosters for the vaccines currently being administered. We are either open or closed; you cannot have both and expect the virus to magically disappear. We will never get in front of this virus until we respect its power.

7. TX and FL need to raise tourist taxes at Spring Break as they have NO income tax.

Gotta get the college kids down there, take their money, and send them home sick to infect people up north.
