CDC Overstates COVID-19 Risk

It’s not about the disease or the science. It hasn’t been for some time. It’s about fear, power, and control.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) estimate of the risk of COVID-19 transmission outdoors is misleading, public health experts warn.


When the federal health agency released new guidelines on masks for fully vaccinated people last month, director Dr Rochelle Walensky stated that ‘less than 10 percent’ of coronavirus spread was occurring outside.


Epidemiologists and infectious disease scientists tell that although the figure is not incorrect, the true risk is believed to be much lower.

The number of COVID-19 cases linked to outdoor spread is below one percent, and may even be as low as 0.1 percent.
