Does anyone even trust the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) anymore? I sure don't!
On Monday, the CDC issued a correction of a statement that was on their website. They claim that a draft of 'proposed changes' was posted in error, including guidelines for airborne transmission of coronavirus.
“A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency’s official website. CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the updated language will be posted,” the website reads.
All of the previously published language in the "draft version" on Friday regarding airborne transmission was removed from the webpage before noon on Monday.
The updated page now says the virus is “thought to spread mainly from person-to-person” from close contact and “respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.”
“These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs,” the agency wrote.
Both the corrected and "draft version" of the guidance says the virus can be spread by those not showing symptoms.
“The virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading very easily and sustainably between people,” per the site.
Before the correction, the CDC said the virus spreads through droplets and small airborne particles suspended in the air and inhaled. These small particles, or aerosols, are formed when an infected person “coughs, sneezes, sings, talks or breathes,” the CDC originally wrote, and added that mounting evidence shows the possibility of airborne transmission.
“These particles can be inhaled into the nose, mouth, airways, and lungs and cause infection. This is thought to be the main way the virus spreads,” the supposed "draft" said.
"We have known of potential of aerosol spread,” said Dr. Waleed Javaid, director of Infection Prevention and Control at Mount Sinai Downtown, “This can occur when certain procedures are performed, or even in certain cases it occurs without airway procedures.”
