Last week, two prominent physicians published an article in Substack article that claimed they believe that the Biden Administration isn't “following the science” and is getting “bad advice” from its own health agencies. The inevitable outcome, they claimed, is low morale at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the mass departure of employees. The article, which was published on July 14th, has been composed by Marty Makary M.D., M.P.H., and Tracy Beth Hoeg M.D., Ph.D.
Based on their biographies, Dr. Makary is a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine as well as the author of The Price We Pay, and a medical advisor for Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin (R). Hoeg, meanwhile, is an epidemiologist with the Florida Department of Health who has published research about COVID within schools. The research was published in a journal of the CDC called MMWR. With this kind of credentials, they ought to be considered serious.
They discuss the two CDC scientists who have been “embarrassed” to work at the CDC.
Why do they feel embarrassed? In short, bad science.
The more likely explanation is that the top officials of their organizations are using flawed or weak information to make crucial health-related decisions for the public. The fact that these decisions are guided by the political pragmatism that is appealing for people in Washington or Biden's administration. Also, they're putting focused attention on one particular virus, instead of the general health.
It's a major concern that decisions regarding health are guided by the political system and are the exact contrary to what Joe has promised during his campaign. “Follow the science” seems to be gone.
We have all believed that the majority of federal and state COVID policies of the government have been more of a health issue than a political one, and here's a confirmation. Doctors expose the terrible impact the laws have had upon children:
“They first demanded that young children be masked at school. In this regard, they were not right. The findings of a study later revealed that schools with masked pupils did not have different levels of transmittance. For the development of their social and linguistic skills children should be able to look at the faces of their peers.”
