Skip to comments.CDC’s Walensky: Can’t Attribute COVID Rise to ‘Southern Border,’ American South ‘Really Quite High’
Posted on 07/30/2021 7:50:10 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Dr. Rochelle Walensky Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” that the Delta variant surge can not be attributed to the high rate of coronavirus cases at the U.S.-Mexico border because the infection rate is “really quite high” in “the southern part of this country.”
Baier said, “One woman wrote in, My in-laws live in Austria, they cannot come here to see their six-month-old baby because of the EU travel band even as migrants come across the southern border from other countries with more COVID and worse vaccine performance and they are allowed in. Is that a problem, Dr. Walensky?”
Walensky said, “We’re working, um, at the CDC to provide technical assistance for all areas of travel as well as to provide technical assistance at the southern border. So as people come in, we are keeping migrants, as well as those communities, as safe as possible with the technical assistance and infection prevention guidelines from the CDC.”
Baier said, “But do you know the surge, how the surge of illegal immigrants with COVID is affecting the overall rate, you know, it sounds like the percentages down there on the border are astronomical?”
Walensky said, “Yeah, you know, I would say that the percentages in the southern part of this country are really quite high. I don’t necessarily think we can attribute all of that to what’s going on at the southern border. I think what we really need to do is spend our time getting our communities vaccinated to getting our individuals vaccinated to prevent disease from transmitting in our communities.”

It has to be the evil unvaccinated people who should be in death camps.
This is by far, the most stupid dishonest regime in the history of the nation. That’s not hyperbole. That’s not hyperbole. That NOT hyperbole.
Wilensky: American South ‘Really Quite High’
The American South has a high percentage of blacks. Blacks are only 9% vaccinated. Isn’t she blaming blacks? Isn’t that racist?
Just to use the Left’s “logic” against them.
I couldn’t sit and calmly interview these a$$hats. I would be in jail tonight for strangling one of these lying scum.
So where are they bussing them? Across the south? They dont address that do they.
Of course it’s the border!
Protesting too much, Democrats.

your fired you lying POS, the vaccine is mutating the virus idiot
Ventilators NOW! White unvaxxed males unleash their plague on innocent immigrant children. Now you tell me, are we playing into their hands? Where can the regime find a higher concentration of political targets than the vaccine deniers. The “standard” dose for the sheeple, the last 50 million treatments get the special brew. Like a viral neutron bomb. Thank goodness the regime doesn’t have access to Chinese expertise in the field.
It looks to be highest in MO, AR, LA, and FL, not CA, AZ, and TX
Deaths are way down so they have to crank up the hysteria on “cases,” most of which are false-positives.
It’s pretty racist of her.
The south has a much Higher black population than the other states.
Blacks vaxed rates are very low.
So she is blaming blacks rather than illegals
The worlds lifelong political ruling elites enjoy their emergency powers and funding.
They will not let go of the emergency until compelled to do so.
Another lying toadie and crackpot.
The most incompetent and dishonest administration in the history of the USA.
Sock Puppet Joe is determined to devour and corrupt every institution in the country.
Every fact is twisted into pretzel logic to defend a crazed narrative.
There has never been a publicized exit strategy.
Well come to eternal “emergency” aka Hell.
This witch is lying thru her fake teeth.
If it was true that most of the cases are false-positives, then wouldn’t NY have tons higher cases since it tests way more than Lousisana?
The Spanish Flu pandemic lasted two years with four waves.
The cases of Covid are spreading like wildfire around here. There are also a bazillion individuals whose families have not resided in this country for the last 100 to 400 years arriving. They’re having to hire more ESL teachers and Spanish speakers to deal with the surge at the schools. I’m sure it’s all coincidental.
