Oops! CDC didn’t mean to say COV is airborne more than 6 feet

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday that it erroneously posted guidance that said the coronavirus spreads through airborne particles that can remain suspended in the air and travel beyond six feet.

“A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency’s official website,” the CDC said. “CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the update language will be posted.”

Earlier in the day, the World Health Organization said it contacted the CDC about the guidance change.

WHO didn’t see “new evidence” to support the new guidelines.

Previously, the CDC had said it just spread between people who are in close contact, and through “respiratory droplets or small particles,” plus surfaces where those droplets land. 

Hours later, the CDC issued a statement that the “draft version” of the proposed changes were published in “error.”

“A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency’s official website. CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the updated language will be posted.”

This virus is like no other virus. I defies gravity and has self propulsion. The CCP is quite clever.

Another fine screw up by the CDC. I wouldn’t believe anything that comes out of that organization. What a farce. Run by career bureaucrats and we wonder that the issue is? A bureaucrat is our worst nightmare.

Imagine these medical experts performing an operation on your brain, OPPS.

Another “oopsie” from the CDC that will never see the light of day on the networks and in the newspapers. The truth doesn’t advance their narrative, so it must remain a secret.
