In the wake of the latest mask guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, even CNN is pushing back.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky appeared on the network Wednesday morning, when “New Day” co-host John Berman pressed her for any sort of medical data to back up her agency’s flip-flop on masks.
His question came after the CDC announced, amid the surge in so-called “Delta variant” COVID-19 cases, that both vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans should, once again, start wearing masks indoors in areas of the country with “high” or “substantial” transmission of the virus.
Those two categories account for a great deal of the nation.
