I'm being nice using the word "incompetence". It is likely far more sinister. Maybe "thirst for power" or simply "Political skullduggery" would be more precise.
Trust in the CDC is for fools. They have shown themselves to be power hungry and political.
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidelines last month for mask wearing, it announced that “less than 10 percent” of Covid-19 transmission was occurring outdoors.
Saying that less than 10 percent of Covid transmission occurs outdoors is akin to saying that sharks attack fewer than 20,000 swimmers a year. (The actual worldwide number is around 150.) It’s both true and deceiving.
In truth, the share of transmission that has occurred outdoors seems to be below 1 percent and may be below 0.1 percent,
There is not a single documented Covid infection anywhere in the world from casual outdoor interactions, such as walking past someone on a street or eating at a nearby table.
