See I Told You So – No New COVID Strain

I rarely toot my own horn, but I’m going to make an exception for this, because it’s just so utterly egregious!

A week ago I posted my weekly exclusive article for World Net Daily.

It was entitled: “Sorry, but I don’t Believe in the ‘New Strain’ of Coronavirus – Not Yet Anyway”

If you missed it, you may link to it here.

In it I stated:

But just when people are beginning to breathe a sigh of relief, there are reports of a new, even worse, strain of the coronavirus.

In years gone by I doubt I would have questioned the validity of such a claim made by the “experts.”

But, after all the misstatements, half-truths and outright lies we’ve been fed, not only scientifically and medically, but politically, in regards to the election, I’m finding it increasing difficult to believe that a new, mutated strain of the virus has been discovered, just as the vaccine is being widely distributed.

In other words, I thought the experts were lying once again – that I didn’t believe there was even a “new strain” of coronavirus, at least not in the U.S. I was called a wacko conspiracy theorist for saying so.

But now, a week later, the CDC is saying the same thing.

from the Blaze:

CDC says reports of a new strain of coronavirus in the US are false, contradicting Dr. Birx

The New York Times documented the frustration coming out of the CDC

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention refuted reports of a new strain of coronavirus in the U.S. based on what they said was speculation from White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Deborah Birx.

Birx suggested to other members of the task force that there might be a new strain in the United States based on the rapid increase of infections. That hypothesis was included in a summary sent to state governors.

“This fall/winter surge has been at nearly twice the rate of rise of cases as the spring and summer surges. This acceleration suggests there may be a USA variant that has evolved here, in addition to the UK variant that is already spreading in our communities and may be 50% more transmissible,” the report read according to the New York Times.

“Aggressive mitigation must be used to match a more aggressive virus,” she added.

The Times reported that the CDC reached out to Birx in an attempt to have that suggestion removed from the summary sent to governors. A source told the Times that the request was denied, to their great frustration.
