Chief Covid nag Dr. Leana Wen is back to lecture about the spread of a contagious virus, which can only mean one thing: Ignore her and every other “expert” because she likely has nothing helpful to say.
Writing in the Washington Post on Tuesday, Wen declared that “containing” the relatively harmless “monkeypox” virus that’s going around “must be a top priority for the Biden administration.” In case you didn’t get the message, Wen wrote later in the same column, “Preventing this virus from taking hold and spreading broadly must be a top focus.”
I think that’s about enough from Wen and the “experts.” The last time they told us what we “must” do, we voluntarily wrecked the economy, retarded the development of an entire generation by keeping them out of school, and turned half the country into scared and miserable mask mongers.
I’m not sure how even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is supposed to ever regain its credibility. Right now the CDC’s website describes monkeypox, another flu-like illness that comes with a bonus rash, in a way that suggests almost everyone will be infected at one point or another.
According to the CDC, monkeypox can transmit via body fluids, touching an infected person’s rash, “prolonged, face-to-face contact,” and even by handling objects that made contact with someone who has the virus.
By my calculation, that means about 100 percent of the country’s population should have the new gorilla AIDS by now. And yet there have only been, according to the CDC, a total of 3,500 confirmed cases. That’s .001 percent of the US population.
How can that be? Well, because the agency is apparently run by a bunch of Anthony Faucis who either lie or make stuff up in order to sound like they know what they’re doing when they really don’t.
A study published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that the vast majority — close to 100 percent — of infections are occurring among men having non-monogamous gay sex. Epidemiologist Jennifer Brown, an author of the study, said the data suggests that infections “are so far almost exclusively occurring among men who have sex with men.”
Aside from a little cartoon depicting two men lying in a bed together, the CDC makes no mention of that helpful bit of information. Instead, you get statements like this: “Monkeypox can spread to anyone.” Instead, you get statements from Fauci like this: “Get rid of anything that even smacks a little bit of stigma.”
If you didn’t learn it from the Covid hysteria, you had better learn it now. Don’t expect anything productive or useful from our “experts.” And definitely don’t do what they say “must” be done to stop a virus that passes through nearly everyone without incident.
