Is de Blasio and his partner Mulgrew risking lives in opening schools fully (the former) and supporting people who don't want to be vaxed (the latter)?
If you are a fan of the Osterholm weekly podcast, he just stopped short of putting De Blasio in that frame as he mocked the 3 feet distance rulings -- and said the CDC people would one day have an accounting over that issue. He also put the learning loss argument on trial. And masking too - the least effective barrier to the disease. If he had a choice between ventilation and Hepa Filters or masks, he would choose the latter. Oh, and testing once a week is a joke. He also raised the issue of economic pressure leading to bad decisions - and we can pretty much say that is the situation here in NYC ---
He said that NYC with back to school would be a bellweather for the nation.
luck DeB and Mulgrew. Anyway - a must listen.
