Biden Admin Considering Updating Social Distancing Rule, World Wants Our Vaccines

Interestingly, this is the same rule that most of the rest of the world has been using for most of the pandemic, as it is the distance that the World Health Organization has been recommending, even though many studies show COVID from a cough can travel up to 20 feet

Fauci: US weighs 3-foot distancing rule, a major change

COVID dancing penguinsThe United States’ top pandemic advisor said Sunday that authorities were considering cutting social distancing rules to three feet (one meter), a move that would change a key tenet of the global fight against Covid-19.

Anthony Fauci, a world-respected figure during the coronavirus crisis, said experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) were examining a Massachusetts study that found “no substantial difference” in Covid cases in schools observing six-foot and three-foot rules.

Asked on CNN’s “State of the Union” show whether that meant that a three-foot separation was sufficient, Fauci replied, “It does, indeed.”

While cautioning that the CDC was still poring over the new data and conducting tests of its own, he said its findings would come “soon.”

The six-foot social distancing rule has been a widely-adopted global measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, along with mask-wearing and hand-washing.

First off, kids haven’t been the group that was really concerned with catching COVID. Second, here’s what WHO says

Maintain at least a 1-metre distance between yourself and others to reduce your risk of infection when they cough, sneeze or speak. Maintain an even greater distance between yourself and others when indoors. The further away, the better.

Sure, maintain an even greater distance inside, but, their basis is 3 feet (1 meter). And that’s the way it’s been since at least last May, when the CDC updated their guidance on masks, and I remember comparing the 2 political health departments.

School officials across the world are under enormous pressure to fully reopen as soon as safely possible, but many say the six-foot requirement makes it extremely difficult without adding portable classrooms or shortening the school day.

Many teachers unions have also insisted on six-foot distancing.

Ah. That’s why the CDC is considering changing this, so the damned schools can open in the face of teacher’s unions, despite the CDC having said time and again that it is safe to open the schools. How about if the teacher’s, being adults, at least by age if not mentality, stay 6 feet away, while kids are 3? Teacher’s unions just want more money, power, and to not have to actually go into work for as long as possible.

US comes under pressure to share vaccines with rest of world

President Biden is under increasing pressure to share the U.S. vaccine stockpile with the rest of the world.

The federal government has been amassing doses, growing its supply into what will likely become a surplus, as the rest of the world struggles with shortages. The U.S. has purchased enough vaccines to immunize every adult in the country three times over.

Then why is it taking so long to get vaccines to some areas? My area is slammed with vaccines. Right now there is, at most, a few days waiting period. Others have weeks or more for waits.

The White House said the extra doses could be a backstop for possible manufacturing issues, help vaccinate children, or serve as booster doses if they become necessary to fight against variants of the virus.

That makes sense, making sure they are available if necessary. Biden’s advisors are playing it safe (Joe just sits around and plays Mario Kart, naps, and does what he’s told)

When asked at the White House event about the widening gap between the U.S. and the rest of the world, Biden acknowledged the global nature of the pandemic but said his goal is to bring COVID-19 under control in America first.

“This is not something that can be stopped by a fence, no matter how high you build a fence or a wall,” Biden said. “So we’re not going to be ultimately safe until the world is safe. We’re going to start off making sure Americans are taken care of first, but we’re then going to try to help the rest of the world.”

Wait, that sounds like an America First agenda. Isn’t that racist?

Yet administration officials reiterated that the United States will not donate any vaccines until the full American population is inoculated, and did not say what threshold the country would set before considering exporting vaccines.

Experts and global health advocates think the U.S. has the ability to donate vaccines to other countries without significantly impacting their availability to Americans, but has been unwilling to make such a plan.

These are the same types of people who always throw hate America’s way, until they want something from us. They can wait. Or pay. Let’s take care of America first.

    Not exactly true. The government has issued contracts for that amount. Production is still in the works. There is no massive stockpile of COVID vaccines yet because production is indeed being distributed as it leaves the factory.

    There is still a vaccine stockpile of other vaccines under a national stockpile that was created during the Clinton administration.

    Why did the government let contracts for 3 times the number of American Adults? Because Biden needed a sound bite that his administration was making MORE vaccines than Trump.

    In a few months, the government will be requiring people to take this so that they can use up what they bought.

    Maybe they should blame Trump.

    The Netherlands joins Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Thailand, Bulgaria, and Ireland, which have all temporarily stopped use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine. The day after the Netherlands’ announcement, Indonesia also made the move, just six days after its regulators authorized AstraZeneca’s shot.

    In Red Missouri unelected Governor Parson has made certain Red counties get the mass of vaccines with St. Louis and KC less served. Of course, StL and KC are where most Dem voters reside.

    The GOP has become the party of punishing Dems. It’s why nuCons support trump – he punished the people nuCons hate.
