“And they actually – the unions – gave different language to the CDC. And then [the] CDC’s final language was almost word-for-word, verbatim, from what the teachers union said. I don’t know of any other group – surely no parents groups – that got this kind of VIP access. And in fact, I asked the CDC Director today in the hearing to give me a list of anybody else that they gave this kind of access to change the documents.”
“So, I asked the CDC Director, ‘Give me names of parent groups that you consulted and gave the same kind of VIP access?’ They couldn’t give me a name. And, I said, ‘I want to know, like, were parents allowed to have the same kind of ability to change the science, like the unions were able to get to keep schools closed?’ And she couldn’t give me a single name because it was the union bosses who said, ‘Look, don’t come up with this until you give us new ability to shut down schools,’ and they paid off their friends and gave them the language.”

Human Infection of H3N8 Bird Flu Reported in China
Will it ever end? On Tuesday this week China’s health authority recorded its first human infection of the H3N8 strain of avian influenza. The variant was identified in a 4-year-old boy from Henan province.
According to a statement from the National Health Commission (NHC) the child raises chickens and crows in his home city of Zhumadian. On April 5 he showed fever and other symptoms, then was admitted to a medical institution five days later for treatment.
The statement indicated while it has been found in horses, dogs, birds and seals around the world, no human cases have ever been reported. Fox News reports the commission “warned the public to avoid contact with sick and dead poultry, as well as live poultry, and pay attention to hygiene.”
In March, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wrote highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses had been detected in 13 states among commercial and backyard poultry, as well as in wild birds of 14 states.
Fortunately, the agency said H5N1 bird flu poses a low risk to the public.
