CDC Makes Sudden Reversal On COVID

( The week before Christmas, the CDC estimated that the Omicron variant accounted for 73 percent of all new COVID cases.

And all week the media regurgitated that number. In every article about the spike in COVID cases and every report of some member of Congress testing positive, the articles would close with a note that 73 percent of new COVID cases are the Omicron variant.

Then on Monday, the CDC revised those numbers dramatically.

Turns out the estimate of 73 percent was a bit off. The CDC is now estimating that Omicron accounts for 22 percent of all new COVID cases.

What’s a measly fifty-point difference between friends?

But trust the experts, everybody! They won’t steer you wrong!

Sure, you could argue that these are just projected estimates. But you’d think the BIG BRAINS at the CDC – those “experts” who now hold the power to affect our economy, schooling, and overall liberty – could at least get the estimate somewhere in the ballpark of reality.

The actual number of Omicron cases for the week ending December 25 was just under 59 percent, while 41 percent of new cases of COVID were attributed to the Delta variant.

In Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont where a new surge is underway, 55.3 percent of reported cases are linked to the Delta variant while 44.5 percent are attributed to Omicron and other variants.

Now in New York and New Jersey, the Omicron variant rules the roost, accounting for 88 percent of the new cases. Nearly 87 percent of new COVID cases in Texas are also linked to the Omicron variant.

As recently as the end of November, 99.5 percent of all COVID cases were linked to the Delta variant which has been the dominant variant since June.

Nationally, about 62 percent of Americans are fully vaccinated. Of those 33 percent have received a COVID booster shot.

It was reported this week that health officials are considering redefining “fully vaccinated” to include the booster shot.

Ironically, when Florida Governor Ron DeSantis suggested in November that “fully vaccinated” would be changed to include boosters, he was excoriated in the media and even fact-checked by the UK Independent.
