WHO Changes Tune About Asymptomatic Coronavirus Spread; Walks Back Previous Statement That It’s ‘Very Rare’

The World Health Organization is slowly but surely proving itself to be one of the least trustworthy institutions on the planet to get any sort of information from concerning the coronavirus, as they are continually changing their reports and walking back comments due to political pressures they receive from countries that contribute to their funding.

A report was released by WHO this week that stated the spread of coronavirus through asymptomatic carriers was actually very rare. Now, however, they are changing their tune and trying to walk back that comment, stating there is “too much about the virus that remains unknown.”

Here’s more from the Washington Examiner:

“I was responding to a question at the press conference. I wasn’t stating a policy of WHO or anything like that. I was trying to articulate what we know, and in that, I used the phrase ‘very rare.’ And I think that’s a misunderstanding, to state that asymptomatic transmission is very rare,” WHO epidemiologist Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said Tuesday.

Kerkhove said Monday that “it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,” a statement that caused surprise and drew criticism because it would undercut the case for social distancing. The previous understanding of viral transmission had been that people not exhibiting symptoms of the coronavirus are still contagious and should socially distance.

On Tuesday, Kerkhove said that about 40 percent of current viral transmissions could come from individuals who are asymptomatic, but too little is understood about how the virus functions to know that for sure.

“It’s a constant revision and a constant evolution and debate,” the epidemiologist stated. “And I mean that in a constructive way of saying what do we know, what are the key questions, what don’t we know, and what are we doing to address those unknown? It’s not enough to say we don’t know.”

Kerhove then said that because they don’t know if asymptomatic carriers are a primary form of transmission for the virus, it’s critical to have widespread contact tracing and testing.

A lot of folks would disagree with that assessment, given that a number of personal liberties would have to be violated in order to make it happen, and we all know how reluctant the government is to give back freedom once they take it away from citizens.

This “walking back” sounds a whole lot like trying to control a political situation, doesn’t it?

Fauci Thinks It Is ‘Inexplicable’ That Texas Is Re-Opening Businesses, Ending Mask Mandate

Have you wondered yet how the flu just happened to magically disappear? That’s not opinion. It is fact, apparently. In the words of Matthew McConaughey’s character from “Wolf of Wall Street,” the flu is fugazi (it’s a woozy, it’s a wazzy…fairy dust). If you still don’t believe that people are assigned covid, then you’re not paying attention. Here’s a quick example, for ya: This author knows a person who went to get tested, the place ended up taking too long so she had to leave early (without being tested) – she later received a notice that she tested positive. Funny how that worked out, huh? Check out Fauci ripping Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) for daring to get his state back on track… https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1367510351827369985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367510351827369985%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F03%2Ffauci-rips-texas-governor-reopening-businesses-ending-mask-mandate-video%2F From Fox News: Texas’s Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday said he planned to open the state next week “100%,” roughly a year after the coronavirus pandemic broke out throughout the U.S. Abbott issued an executive order that rescinds many of the state’s previous orders, allowing all businesses in the state to fully reopen and revoking the statewide mask mandate as of next Wednesday.

If you voted for a pro-choice, anti-American, beta male, weak-on-the-border presidential candidate last November, who hurt you as a child? Who taught you so poorly in your youth? Shame shame. From Axios: Fresh internal documents from the Department of Health and Human Services show how quickly the number of child migrants crossing the border is overwhelming the administration’s stretched resources. Driving the news: In the week ending March 1, the Border Patrol referred to HHS custody an average of 321 children per day, according to documents obtained by Axios. That’s up from a weekly average of 203 in late January and early February — and just 47 per day during the first week of January. The same documents, dated Tuesday, say the shelter system is at 94% occupancy and expected to reach its maximum this month. LOOK: H/T: Right Scoop
