CDC Admits it Screwed the Pandemic Pooch, Promises a ‘Reset’

'It’s not lost on me that we fell short in many ways... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) After more than two years spent crippling and dividing the nation with tyrannical mandates, public shaming and brutal reprisals for anyone who disagreed with the Biden regime’s COVID dictums, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday admitted the agency’s handling of the pandemic was rife with “mistakes” and “did not reliably meet expectations.”

If “mistakes” covered a string of flip-flops and science-denying political pandering that contributed to millions of deaths, an economic and education crisis and the shattering of public trust, critics contended that CDC Director Rochelle Walensky should have offered her resignation instead of a squishy mea culpa and promise to do better with an agency “reset.”

“It’s not lost on me that we fell short in many ways,” Walensky said, according to the New York Post.

“Prior to this pandemic, our infrastructure within the agency and around the country was too frail to tackle what we confronted with COVID-19,” she said.

“To be frank, we are responsible for some pretty dramatic, pretty public mistakes — from testing, to data, to communications.”

In response, Walensky said she is overhauling the bureaucratic behemoth with “internal staffing moves and steps to speed up data releases,” reported the Associated Press, which has spent the better part of the pandemic peddling the CDC line.

Walensky’s announcement came on the heels of the CDC last week finally conceding that people exposed to COVID no longer have to quarantine.

According to Fox News, Walensky’s CDC “reset” also includes shaking up its communications office, revamping its website and creating a new executive council to set strategy and priorities. Walensky said the “reset” decision was her brainchild and wasn’t directed by the White House.

“I feel like it’s my my responsibility to lead this agency to a better place after a really challenging three years,” she said.
