The CDC is responding to criticism over its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, monkeypox and other public health threats.

CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told the agency’s staff about the changes she called a CDC initiative. It was not directed by the White House or other administration officials, Walensky said.

The CDC, with a $12 billion budget and more than 11,000 employees, is an Atlanta-based federal agency charged with protecting Americans from disease outbreaks and other public health threats. It’s customary for each CDC director to do some reorganizing, but Walensky’s action comes amid a wider demand for change.

Romans 1:27-32
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain The MOST HIGH AHYAH omnipotent one, in their knowledge, The MOST HIGH AHYAH omnipotent one, gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,30 Backbiters, haters of The MOST HIGH AHYAH omnipotent one, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of The MOST HIGH AHYAH omnipotent one, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

NEW CDC GUIDELINES AND CHANGES IS JUST BIGGER LIARS ON A MURDERING PANEL WITH NAZI DEATH DOCTORS. EVEN LESS SCIENCE THAT NEEDS MORE MONEY TO BE LESS TRANSPARENT AND MORE INCOMPETENT.

DO YOU WONDER? As we manage the Monkeypox vaccine shortage, I have been wondering why public health officials (both gay and straight) didn't immediately and responsibly recommend canceling all public gatherings that were scheduled from June onward, until such time that the vaccines have been distributed to the most at-risk group? Public health officials fully knew that MPox can be transmitted through less intimate touching than sex—just look at how it most commonly spreads in Africa (not via sex). The scramble for vaccines and T-Poxx has been a real challenge, but we could have also been reducing the spread of MPox through reduced contact with others — like how we limited our contact during the worst of the covid epidemic by staying away from each other. There’s been practically no messaging about canceling / postponing public gatherings —Why Not?! It’s just commonsense ! !

Resign immediately! Accept your failure to lead…

Trip Williams says:

I still haven’t gotten covid once.

I’ll stay scared and helpless in my basement for a little while longer though.

Thanks CDC

Go ahead, explain how the children that gay couple adopted ended up getting monkey pox when it's confirmed to only happen from sex.

Go ahead. Let's see how many hoops you can jump through

Defund the Center for Disease Confusion.

Imagine if we had an agency that would protect us from outbreaks! LoL. They've been paid out to look the other way. CDV is obsolete.
