CDC Blasted After Shortening Quarantine Time at Delta Airlines' Request

Late on Monday, the CDC made a major announcement regarding their COVID quarantine recommendations, with many Americans at first finding themselves pleased.

You see, the usually-cautious organization was actually taking a turn in the other direction, adjusting the recommended quarantine time for folks who test positive for COVID down to 5 days from 10.  This stark shift would allow many Americans to get back to work quicker after having a ‘rona scare, so long as they didn’t develop symptoms.

U.S. health officials on Monday cut isolation restrictions for asymptomatic Americans who catch the coronavirus from 10 to five days, and similarly shortened the time that close contacts need to quarantine.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said the guidance is in keeping with growing evidence that people with the coronavirus are most infectious in the two days before and three days after symptoms develop.

The decision also was driven by a recent surge in COVID-19 cases, propelled by the omicron variant.

Early research suggests omicron may cause milder illnesses than earlier versions of the coronavirus. But the sheer number of people becoming infected — and therefore having to isolate or quarantine — threatens to crush the ability of hospitals, airlines and other businesses to stay open, experts say.

But then came a startling realization:  This was all Delta’s idea.

This has led to some serious and immediate backlash online, where ordinary citizens were able to peek into the true machinations of our medical-governmental complex.

One has to wonder if this anti-Delta, anti-corporate backlash has yet to peak?
