The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday recommended shorter Covid isolation and quarantine time for all Americans.
The CDC made the announcement shortly after Biden said “there is no federal solution to Covid.”
With Omicron cases spiking, longer quarantine times would threaten to crush airlines, hospitals and other businesses.
All of a sudden the CDC is acknowledging there is evidence people are most infectious in the two days before and three days after symptoms manifest.
The CDC made the decision to cut isolation time from 10 to 5 days in an effort to help Joe Biden and make sure there isn’t a total collapse of society under his watch.
In contrast, the CDC worked against President Trump and did everything possible to destroy America during the 2020 election.
The Associated Press reported:
U.S. health officials on Monday cut isolation restrictions for Americans who catch the coronavirus from 10 to five days, and similarly shortened the time that close contacts need to quarantine.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said the guidance is in keeping with growing evidence that people with the coronavirus are most infectious in the two days before and three days after symptoms develop.
Early research suggests omicron may cause milder illnesses than earlier versions of the coronavirus. But the sheer number of people becoming infected — and therefore having to isolate or quarantine — threatens to crush the ability of hospitals, airlines and other businesses to stay open, experts say.
BREAKING: U.S. health officials are cutting isolation restrictions for those who test positive for the coronavirus and shortening the time that close contacts have to quarantine. People with the virus can leave isolation after five days, down from 10 days. https://t.co/cciaX1DdWT
