President Biden has claimed for months that the continuing spread of coronavirus has been a “pandemic among the unvaccinated”. He also repeatedly stated that vaccinated people can’t spread the virus. This contradicts what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been saying since April.
The president stated that “This is a pandemic among the unvaccinated,” to Ohio’s WHIO TV 7 Dec. 14. “The unvaccinated. The unvaccinated are not vaccinated. That’s the problem. Everyone talks about freedom, but not having a chance or a test. Guess what? What about patriotism? What about being vaccinated to prevent spreading the disease to others?
The CDC has warned about COVID-19-related infections since at least 2021. In April, the CDC issued an update that stated, “People can still become sick and spread COVID-19 to other people even after they have been fully vaccinated.”
CDC revised its guidance regarding fully vaccinated persons during the epidemic of the delta variant. They advised that they wear masks indoors due to the high transmissibility. The CDC stated that although the COVID-19 vaccines are effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and death, it is possible for breakthrough infections to occur.
According to the July 27 guidance, “Infections in fully-vaccinated persons (breakthrough infections),” only a small percentage of fully-vaccinated individuals are at risk. However, preliminary evidence suggests that people infected by the Delta variant virus can spread it to others.
This is also true for the new omicron variant which is more transmissible than that of the delta variant. ABC News’ analysis of state and federal data last month revealed an increase in breakthrough coronavirus cases from July.
The CDC stated on Dec. 20 that Omicron infection is a serious condition and that it could spread to other people.
Biden repeatedly attempted to blame unvaccinated persons for the continuing pandemic, despite the fact that the agency has stated since April that the virus could spread to vaccinated individuals. Biden encouraged Americans to get their kids vaccinated on Nov. 3 to “stop the spread of this pandemic”
Biden stated that vaccine-assisted workers are protected against COVID on Oct. 7. He was defending his mandate for health care workers.
The president spoke directly to Americans who were not vaccinated on Sept. 9 and stated that “We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin.” Your refusal has cost us all.” The president declared, on Aug. 23, that “the pandemic among the unvaccinated” was a tragedy that could be prevented. He said that he was not likely to contract COVID if he had these vaccines during a CNN town hall on July 21.
Biden stated that the only pandemic we have, two weeks after America’s near independence from the coronavirus virus, was July 16th.
The U.S. also recorded a record number of COVID-19-related cases in a single day, on Monday. This nearly doubled the record of 590,000, which was set four days earlier. According to the CDC, 73% of Americans were at least partially vaccinated while 62% were fully vaccinated.
Despite the fact that hospitalizations are on the rise, it is not clear that the increase in cases has resulted in an increase in deaths.
Biden is not the only one offering contradictory advice from the government. MSNBC’s Dr. Anthony Fauci stated that vaccines “prevent getting infected, prevent getting ill, and prevent hospitalizations.” However, he urged MSNBC viewers to not forgo the vaccine, but instead opt for monoclonal antibody treatment following infection.
Fauci stated that he would rather not be infected than get infected and need to be treated.
