The screen shots shown below have been lifted directly from archived copies of the CDC’s own website.
The images need to be from archived sources because the CDC deceptively keeps changing their advice.
Honest journalists (a bit of an oxymoron, I know) are duty bound to state whenever any of their original articles are subsequently “amended”. The CDC, however, seems to be bound by no such journalistic and ethical constraints.
The images used below show the way in which the CDC has quietly changed the advice they first gave; advice that caused such fear and paranoia, not to mention mass hysteria and panic buying of “hand sanitizer”.
Here then, is a reminder of the initial, albeit now conveniently morphed, “advice” with which we have become all too familiar. Notice the “scary” sub-heading highlighted in blue that reads:
“Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects!”
28th March, 2020 Version
However, sometime afterward March 28th, quietly, and without fanfare, that CDC changed their “advice” … significantly.
Suddenly, gone was the breathless, panicked advice:
“Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects”
Instead, the “same” web page was quietly rewritten, sometime in May 2020, to read as follows:
“The virus does NOT spread easily in other ways”
Here is the quietly “revised” version of the page as it appeared on the 11th May, 2020
11th May 2020 Version
Despite the CDC’s “slippery” attempts to “change history”, they still found it irresistibly convenient, it seems, to still use their original, incorrect, and yet “still useful for scaring people” advice just one more time.
Their advice of 18th of May, 2020, just a week after “updating” a document written in response to President Trump’s “Plan For Opening Up America Again” policy, is a case in point.
The document was entitled “Considerations for Restaurants and Bars”, as shown below.
Given that this report was merely “updated” on the 18th of May 2020, it was surely written earlier than that and so their own “latest scientific advice” would have been “fresh in the mind”.
It would therefore be expected that the CDC would surely reflect that latest – albeit surreptitiously edited – “advice” that they had only published less than a week earlier, on the 11th of May.
But such an expectation would be misplaced.
Instead, the CDC dusted down and resurrected their original wrong advice; the advice that had caused a global “pan-panic” on 28th March.
Consider the following from the “Considerations for Restaurants and Bars” Report:
“COVID-19 is mostly spread by respiratory droplets released when people talk, cough, or sneeze. It is thought that the virus may spread to hands from a contaminated surface and then to the nose or mouth, causing infection.”
“Therefore, personal prevention practices (such as hand washing, staying home when sick) and environmental cleaning and disinfection are important principles that are covered in this document.”
But the fact is, that “hand washing”, “staying at home when sick” and “environmental cleaning and disinfection” are all standard procedure in any establishments serving food, at ALL times, and are not measures specifically related to combating a virus.
With that in mind, consider this:
“The virus does NOT spread easily in other ways” and “touching a surface or object that has the virus on it … is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.” – CDC, May 18th, 2020
Yet still, despite all that, the CDC still spends 500 words outlining in their report how important disinfecting surface are in order to be able to “Open up America”.
One specific section under a sub-heading “Clean and Disinfect” reads as follows:
“Close off areas used by a sick person, and do not use these areas until after cleaning and disinfecting them. Wait at least 24 hours before cleaning and disinfecting.”
But it is surely common sense, at all times, for a “sick person” to not even go to work to all, and yet even if they did, wouldn’t they be sent home immediately?
And even if they did touch “areas” and surfaces, according to the CDC … ”touching a surface or object that has the virus on it … is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.”
Recommending that the “area” and “surfaces” be treated like a radiation accident zone and be quarantined off as if a bio-weapon had been spilled is simply a ridiculous overreaction.
Yet such ridiculous overreaction has been the hallmark of this entire “pandemic”.
Such a wildly irresponsible overreaction led to the shutdown of the entire global economy; a move that is already sure to lead to the death on millions more people than the ridiculous “response” could ever hope to save.
Even by Doctor Fauci’s own admission, of March 26th, as recorded in The New England Journal of Medicine, the virus has a “case fatality rate” of “considerably less than 1%”.
In fact, more accurate research puts the rate as being comparable to seasonal flu. And yet Doctor Fauci’s egregious and exaggerated overreaction was unleashed and constitutes an absolute abject failure of proper risk management procedures that will go down in history as nothing short of criminal.
