There is very little evidence in the scientific and medical community to back up her claim, but Joe Biden’s new CDC Director Rachel Walensky is now blaming youth sports for the increase in COVID-19 activity nationwide.
“As the trends and data have been indicating, cases are increasing nationally, and we are seeing this occur predominantly in younger adults. This is why you’ve heard me so clearly share my concern,” Walensky said. “And as more schools are reopening, it’s even more important to make sure they do so safely, with strict adherence to CDC guidance, and for all of us to roll up our sleeves for a vaccine as soon as we can.”
Despite plenty of evidence to the contrary during the entire pandemic, Walensky pointed the finger at kids getting out of their homes and engaging in sport.
“We are learning that many outbreaks in young people are related to youth sports and extracurricular activities. According to CDC guidance, these activities should be limited, but if they are not, the risks of clusters can be pervadence [sic] — can be prevented with cadence testing strategies, as are being rolled out in so many different places,” she said.
Walensky actually did this: Joe Biden’s new, panic-filled emotional CDC director has a bad feeling of impending doom
Walensky later detailed indoor events and parties which contributed to the rise in COVID-19 this spring.
Last week, Walensky release more unsubstantiated fear peddling when she said she has a very ‘bad feeling’ about the COVID-19 virus.
The University of Wisconsin released the results from a study showing that High School sports had very little impact, if any on COVID-19 cases this past fall.
207 schools that had reinitiated sport reported 270 COVID-19 cases among 30,074 40 players, for case and incidence rates of 809 cases per 100,000 players and 32.6 cases per 100,000 41 player-days, respectively. The case rates for athletes in each county were positively correlated 42 with the case rates for the county’s general population, the study found.
Most cases of COVID-19 in school sports were traced back to outbreaks outside of the activities, the study revealed.
