An innumerate former CDC director praises pandemic policy but laments we didn't do even more masking and locking down.
Chile locked down harshly and vaccinated with 4 doses over 90% of the population. And we have the highest cumulative excess mortality.
Excellent analysis and takedown of Frieden's craven, backhanded plea for future forced injections, masking, and lockdowns.
Wow. This is a brilliant analysis and take down of the pro lockdown covid maximalist ideas.
Its notable that The NY Times ran an editorial by Bill Gates ( oh God) which made the same point as Friedens, we need to do more and be ready for the next dreadful pandemic. So I would say that the pandemic mongers are hard at work trying to groom the narrative.. for the next pandemic.
Frieden’s article is unlikely to be the result of an inability to understand the numbers. It is more likely a calculated initiative to steer public opinion to supporting future CDC programs.
Another thought provoking essay Brett. Thank you.
