CDC Finally Acknowledges Role of Comorbidities and Covid
The CDC director just said over 75% of “covid deaths” occurred in people with at least four comorbidities. Since Biden can’t shut down covid, suddenly all this data is getting shared publicly. pic.twitter.com/NKvproy3lx

To be sure, that fact is nothing new. We’ve known for a very long time that comorbidities are a key factor in judging someone’s risk from COVID, with a combination of being immunocompromised due to advanced age and obesity being the most common situation. Yet, here, Walensky isn’t just saying that one comorbidity makes the difference. She’s saying that 75% of deaths occurred in people with at least four comorbidities.
While some of us have been pointing that out since the spring of 2020, we were maligned as wanting to kill grandma. Yet, downplaying the loss of life of the elderly was never the point being made. Rather, it was to say that we should manage mitigation based on the inherent risks to certain demographics. For example, there was never any reason for healthy, non-obese 18-50 year-olds to be locked down and put out of work. Further, because of the greatly reduced risk profile of such demographics, there was also never any reason to mandate vaccinations. Walensky’s admission also put the final nail in the coffin on the idea that children need to be vaccinated, a demographic that faces essentially no risk at all.
In short, protecting the old and sick with isolation and vaccines while letting everyone else live their lives was always the best strategy after it became clear that we could not control the spread of the virus, a reality that was obvious by mid-2020.
Not only would more nuanced mitigation measures have possibly saved thousands of lives due to increased deaths of despair caused by the lockdowns, but it would have meant many more people gaining natural immunity sooner who were otherwise not at any significant risk. That is happening now with Omicron whether we like it or not but had we done what Sweden did, we might have avoided the most recent wave altogether. . . .
Finally, just to be a cherry on top, Walensky also reiterated comments she made some months ago about the vaccines not stopping transmission of the virus.
“What the vaccines can’t do anymore is prevent transmission.”

. . . .If the vaccines do not stop transmission, then there is zero justification for vaccine passports and mandates. Unfortunately, the Washington politicians and the mainstream media are so invested in causing division that they’ll never make that connection. . . .
What do you think about this major admission by the CDC? Share in the comments . . .
