CDC now says 'it may be possible' for COVID-19 to spread on surfaces

<More WTF Here>

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has changed its coronavirus guidance once again, acknowledging information posted on its website last week about the risk of contracting COVID-19 from contaminated surfaces was confusing.

The CDC now says the coronavirus can “possibly” be spread on surfaces and objects, though the virus is mainly transmitted between people.

This is not the first time the nation’s premier public health agency has had to reverse course on information related to the coronavirus, including the agency’s evolving guidance on whether a mask should be worn in public.

The CDC has frequently been at odds with the White House over the response to the pandemic.

The CDC initially changed the information about transmission risk from surfaces last Wednesday, saying the novel coronavirus “does not spread easily” by “touching surfaces or objects.”

In March, the CDC warned “it may be possible” to spread the coronavirus on surfaces and objects. Two months later, the CDC updated its website advisory to classify surfaces as a medium by which the virus does not easily spread.

Heading into Memorial Day weekend, the CDC sent out a press release to clarify any misunderstanding, blaming edits on the website for a lack of clarity.

We just need to close the door on this cacophony of clowns. They have failed at their one actual responsibility. Of course I am sure their gun violence study and the novel Globull Warming studies are trucking along fine.
