A clinician who manages the nation’s response to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus pandemic changed her position after the Democratic Party declared she was not fit for the job.
Deborah Birx appears to have fully reversed her previously constructive assessment of the CCP Virus.
“We are in a new phase, what we are seeing today is different from March and April [and] it is extraordinarily widespread,” the White House CCP Virus response coordinator told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “This epidemic right now is different, it is more widespread, and it is [in] both rural and urban [areas].”
Birx urged anyone living with more than two generations of family members to wear a mask even if they are inside their homes.
“Importantly, if you are a multigenerational household and there is an outbreak in your area or city, you need to consider wearing a mask at home assuming that you are positive if you have individuals in your household with co-morbidities,” she said.
She also warned those living in less densely populated areas they are at risk of being infected. “To everyone who lives in a rural area, you are not immune or protected from this virus.”
“That is why we keep saying no matter where you live in America you need to wear a mask and socially distance, [and] do the personal hygiene,” she added.
The remarks came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) used a nationally televised interview to express no confidence in Birx’s handling of the pandemic.
“I think the president is spreading disinformation about the virus, and she is his appointee, so I do not have confidence there, no,” the Democrat told ABC News’ “This Week.”
She then blamed Americans who wanted to reopen the country for causing the number of infections to jump, and said this should serve as a warning to restrict the national economy indefinitely.
“Some people in the state wanted to open up and we are a large state and have great diversity of opinion on what should happen in different regions and when the opening up took place we had more cases,” she said. “That should be instructive to others. The virus is vicious and you have to have shelter in place as long as you need it. And when you do and you reduce the spread then you can open up the state.”
The Oval Office was disappointed to learn the virus response coordinator had bowed to pressure from the Democrats to create unnecessary panic.
“So ‘crazy’ Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China virus, including vaccines and therapeutics,” President Donald Trump said on Twitter.
“In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait and hit us—pathetic.”
