The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new recommendations to prevent infection by the CCP Virus (COVID-19). Still, despite mass vaccination in the U.S. and the decrease in cases, the measures have hardly been reduced.

In this regard, Stanford University professor of medicine Jay Bhattacharya condemned the role of the CDC during the pandemic and accused them of “institutionalizing a state of hypochondria” widespread in society.

During an interview with Just The News, renowned professor Bhattacharya was highly critical of the CDC’s role during the CHP pandemic. The “hypervigilant” response to combat contagions by the public health agency over the past 12 to 14 months has paved the way for spreading “fear and panic” among citizens, which does not help prevent disease, and may even predispose bodies less to deal with adverse situations.

Tuesday’s announcements specify that those who are fully vaccinated can now exercise and attend small outdoor gatherings without a mask. The professor said that firstly “the measure is very light” and secondly that it comes “too late.”

This sort of order should have come long ago,” said Bhattacharya. “I think they’re being entirely too cautious by saying, ‘Okay, only if you’re vaccinated … People who have had the disease before are also immune. Why shouldn’t they be ‘allowed’ to not wear masks?” 

For starters, there has been “very little evidence of outdoor transmission of the disease,” Bhattacharya added. 

Similar is true for children, who are known to have extremely low transmissibility of the virus, even of the “new strains.” In turn, in the few cases of contagion, they usually get over it without major complications other than a minor seasonal flu. So why force them to wear masks? In its recent action update, the CDC said that social distancing and mask use should continue at children’s summer camps to prevent possible outbreaks of the CCP Virus.

Regarding this, Bhattacharya wrote a piece in mid-April in the Wall Street Journal, citing studies from Sweden and the World Health Organization (WHO) itself, recommending that we avoid masking children until at least age 11, considering the low risk of infection and the very real danger of children being developmentally delayed.

Bhattacharya was one of many prominent medical experts present—along with Sunetra Gupta of Oxford, Martin Kulldorff of Harvard, and Scott Atlas of Stanford—at the CCP Virus roundtable held last month by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. All of them advised against masking children for various health reasons, although their opinions have now been banned from YouTube for discussing the topic.

But of course, there is one undeniable issue, as Bhattacharya described, the masks are “a palpable symbol of panic and fear,” and if the globalist elites are truly what they intend to spread in society to make it easier to control them, then the strategy of masking as many people as possible turns out to be a super effective plan.

The CDC wants society to basically see the CCP Virus as the core problem, Bhattacharya warns. “Neither religion, nor your children, nor your profession is as important as avoiding contracting the disease.”
