The Change in the Wind is Obvious
The Science is proving itself, again, to simply be The Political Science in a wig
Even Leana Wen has gotten her marching orders from above: Pull a complete 180 and start coming down from the covid hysteria.
Notice how covid is receding even in places without any mask rules at all? This is simply the government taking credit for spring.
Biden desperately needs a win, and the likely declaration of victory over covid during the State of the Union on March 1 needs a little bit of ‘massaging’ so the public forgets what the ‘leaders’ were saying about lifting covid rules at this time last year:
'Neanderthal thinking': Biden lays into states lifting Covid restrictions
President Joe Biden said Wednesday that moves by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and others to lift statewide Covid restrictions showed "Neanderthal thinking."
“I think it’s a big mistake. I hope everyone has realized right now these masks make a difference," Biden said of the decision to lift mask mandates and other Covid mitigation measures. "We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally change the nature of this disease because of the way in which we are able to get vaccines in people’s arms.”
Last year it was ‘Neanderthal thinking’ to lift mask restrictions. This year it’s ‘the right step.’
What changed, I wonder?
Edit: Just after publication, we get this.
Biden officials trying to recalculate U.S. Covid-19 hospitalizations
The administration’s goal is to get a more accurate sense of Covid’s impact across the country.
This is one of the things that we’ve been pointing out since the beginning, but now that the political science has changed, the narrative must change as well.
