The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention chief Dr. Rochelle Walensky on Sunday set the record straight against Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s false statement that 100,000 children are hospitalized in serious condition and “many” on ventilators, due to COVID-19.

“We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in…in serious condition and many on ventilators” Justice Sotomayor said Friday. Walensky appeared on “Fox News Sunday” where host Bret Baier asked her directly about the Justices comment, and asking her to clarify that numbers show there are fewer than 3,500 children currently being treated with COVID-19.

“Yeah” said Walensky. She quickly moved on to advocate for vaccination saying “but, you know, here’s what I can tell you about our pediatric hospitalizations now. First of all, the vast majority of children who are in the hospital are unvaccinated, and for those children who are not eligible for vaccination, we do know they are most likely to get sick with COVID if their family members aren’t vaccinated.”

Walensky’s statements closely follow the Biden administration’s rhetoric that it is the unvaccinated – of any age – that is “fueling” the pandemic. Baier asked Walensky if she felt responsibility to set the record straight on the exaggerated COVID-19 numbers being spread throughout the Biden administration, liberal media, and now a Supreme Court Justice.

Vehemently staying on message, Walensky responded, “Yeah, here’s what I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you that, right now, 17 — if you’re unvaccinated, you’re 17 times more likely to be in the hospital and 20 times more likely to die than if you’re boosted.”

“And so, what my responsibility is, is to provide guidance and recommendations to protect the American people. Those recommendations strongly recommend vaccination for our children above the age of 5 and boosting for everyone above the age of 18 if they’re eligible” she concluded.

    Not sure if the “yeah” was confirmation on Baier’s # of 3500 or if she just always starts her answers with a “yeah”

    Why is a SCOTUS justice considering facts (right or wrong) NOT PRESENTED IN THE CASE?
    She is not being a judge, rather is acting like an activist.

Freedom in the UK: Johnson ends ‘all Covid measures’ including mask wearing

The United Kingdom is enjoying a huge announcement. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced “the end of all Covid measures introduced to combat the Omicron variant – compulsory mask-wearing on public transport and in shops, guidance to work from home and vaccine certificates – from next week” reports The Guardian.

For those with coronavirus, the legal requirement for them to self-isolate will also be allowed to lapse when the regulations expire on March 24. Johnson also announced an immediate end for students to wear masks at secondary schools.

“From tomorrow we will no longer require face masks in classrooms and the Department for Education will shortly remove national guidance on their use in communal areas,” Johnson told the Commons.

“In the country at large we will continue to suggest the use of face coverings in enclosed or crowded spaces, particularly when you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet, but we will trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalise anyone who chooses not to wear one.”

The Prime Minister said Covid data was “showing that time and again this government got the toughest decisions right” and that plan B rules that were put in place in December could all be lifted from next Thursday, the day after a pre-existing review point.

The Guardian notes Britain had expected Johnson would soon be ending work-from-home guidance and the mandate to show a certificate proving vaccination or proof of a recent negative Covid test. However, the immediate lifting of mandatory mask rules will “come as a surprise to some.”

Johnson is receiving some push back from some teaching and health unions. The general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, said ministers would “regret sending the wrong signal to the public for political expediency”.

Joint general secretary of the National Education Union Mary Bousted said, “While the trend amongst secondary aged children is down, it is however uncertain, due to the short time schools have been back since the Christmas holidays, that this trend will continue. Such uncertainty could lead to a pronounced risk of increased disruption with children and staff having to isolate.”
