People misinterpreting the latest CDC mask guidance!

Recently, USA released their latest guidelines regarding the compulsion of putting on the masks. Dr. Anthony Fauci, in his statement said, “I think people are misinterpreting, thinking that this is a removal of a mask mandate for everyone — it’s not.”

Yesterday, Dr. Anthony claimed that many Americans are actually getting confused with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest guidance. These guidelines probably clarify that the completely vaccinated people no longer require to wear masks in most cases.

In an interview, Fauci stated that the new federal guidance was “an assurance to those who are vaccinated that they can feel safe, be they outdoors or indoors.” He further said that he thinks people are misinterpreting, thinking that this is a removal of a mask mandate for everyone — it’s not. He also mentioned that most of the USA citizens are not actually properly reading the guidance.

“People either read them quickly, or listen and hear half of it. They are feeling that we’re saying: ‘You don’t need the mask anymore.’ That’s not what the CDC said,” Fauci said. “They said: If you are vaccinated, you can feel safe — that you will not get infected either outdoors or indoors. It did not explicitly say that unvaccinated people should abandon their masks.”

As per records of CDC, it was reported that about 37 percent of the population have been fully vaccinated. On the other hand, about 47 percent of the population have at least got the single dose of the vaccine. With coronavirus cases dropping across the country, an increasing number of states have begun lifting pandemic restrictions.

However, widely varying vaccination rates across states have prompted some businesses like Trader Joe’s and Instacart to pay their employees, incentivizing them to get the Covid-19 vaccine.
