CNN Seems Pretty Upset That States Are Relaxing Their COVID Rules

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s easy for people who were considered essential workers and never missed a paycheck to complain, eh?

A top health official warned relaxing Covid-19 measures threatens progress. A day later, more states said they were easing restrictions

A top health official warned the US could see an “avoidable” Covid-19 surge if Americans let up on mitigation measures now. A day later, two more states unveiled plans to loosen restrictions.

“The continued relaxation of prevention measures while cases are still high and while concerning variants are spreading rapidly throughout the United States is a serious threat to the progress we have made as a nation,” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Monday.

It wasn’t the first time Walensky brought up concerns about the easing of safety measures. And a chorus of other health experts have made a similar point: While vaccination numbers continue to climb, safety measures will be critical in the coming weeks to help curb another possible surge as a dangerous variant spreads across the country.

“It’s really very much a race,” Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, told CNN on Monday. “If we can continue to accelerate the number of people vaccinated in this country… I think we’ll be in a much better position. But you have unfortunately a lot of governors releasing restrictions, people are traveling… and this B.1.1.7 variant.”

It will always be something with these folks. Perhaps they should have been more forthright when the nation was mostly shutting down and mostly Democrat governors, along with those in charge of cities and counties, were going crazy with their restrictions. There really is little difference between those areas which put massive restrictions in place and those that didn’t. And you see those with massive restrictions, such as the UK and Italy, continuing to have big problems. There becomes a point where people are tired of this and thinking that the Elites are trying to over-scare us.

Since the start of the month, at least a dozen state leaders have eased Covid-19 restrictions. And a day after both experts’ remarks, two more governors announced plans to relax some measures.

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb announced Tuesday that starting April 6, the state’s face covering mandate will become a state mask advisory. Face masks will remain mandatory in state buildings and facilities as well as at Covid-19 testing and vaccination sites, the governor said.

In Virginia, Gov. Ralph Northam announced that starting April 1, both indoor and outdoor gathering limits will increase and certain sports and entertainment venues will be able to operate with additional capacity.

At some point, all the restrictions have to relax and go away, right? If not, why? Why try and scaremonger?

Many state leaders — including those who have opted to relax restrictions — have in recent weeks expressed optimism about inching closer to the end of the pandemic, citing lowered Covid-19 numbers in comparison to the winter surge and increasing vaccinations.

So far, more than 83.9 million Americans have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to data from the CDC. More than 45.5 million are fully vaccinated, according to the data. That’s roughly 13.7% of the US population.

So, over a quarter of Americans have been vaccinated, and you pair that with all those who have the antibodies after having COVID. As more become vaccinated, what rationale will the Elites use to keep restrictions in place?
