Twitter ROASTS CDC over revised quarantine time with hilarious future predictions

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently announced that they are lowering the recommended quarantine time for asymptomatic COVID-positive people from ten days to a mere five. This has prompted some disbelief from those who don’t think that’s nearly long enough.

Despite clarifying that people who are positive but don’t exhibit symptoms still need to wear a mask for the remaining five days, people are already running away with fantastical suggestions as to what CDC recommendations might be down the pipeline.

The CDC has been the epicenter of COVID-19 knowledge, guidelines, and recommendations, and there are those who follow their word more devoutly than the Bible. But that hasn’t stopped people from mocking the sudden reversal. Judging by some of the comments, it would appear as though some believe the new recommendations are mostly benefitting businesses, which tend to suffer when a number of their staff are out for two workweeks.

In a statement regarding the halved quarantine recommendation, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky explained to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins the reasoning, revealing that science may not be the only thing guiding their hand.

“So how did the CDC settle on five days for everyone?” Collins asked.

Walensky noted that they looked at how much transmission was actually happening during the time when one is actually infected, noting that “[w]e know that the most amount of transmission occurs in those 1-2 days before you develop symptoms, those two to three days after you develop symptoms” and claimed that those five days “account for somewhere between 85-90% of all transmission that occurs.”

She went on to add that people should be able to go back to work with proper precautions in the days after their most infectious period.

This information prompted Collins to note that it sounded like “this decision had just as much to do with business as it did with the science,” which is odd considering America is now nearly two years into a pandemic that caused millions to lose their jobs, creating a separate crisis of financial instability among those who could least afford it. It seemed as though it was a foreign concept to Collins that someone would like to go back to work as soon as possible despite catching COVID.

“It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate,” Walensky admitted.
