CDC Says People with Coronavirus But No Fever Can Return to Work or Regular Activities


So it turns out the whole coronavirus thing was not really a problem in the first place?

Interesting that Andrew Anglin was totally right about that and the government is now admitting it.

The Guardian:

Americans who test positive for Covid-19 no longer need to stay in isolation for five days, US health officials announced on Friday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changed its longstanding guidance, saying that people can return to work or regular activities if their symptoms are mild and improving and it has been a day since they have had a fever.

The change comes at a time when Covid-19 is no longer the public health menace it once was. It dropped from being the nation’s third leading cause of death early in the pandemic to 10th last year.

Most people have some degree of immunity to the coronavirus from past vaccinations or from infections. And many people are not following the five-day isolation guidance anyway, some experts say.

Covid-19 is not causing as many hospitalizations and deaths as it did in the first years of the pandemic. The change is an effort to streamline recommendations so they are similar to longstanding recommendations for flu and other respiratory viruses. Many people with a runny nose, cough or other symptoms are not testing to distinguish whether it is Covid-19, flu or something else, officials say.

Well, the tests are just arbitrary anyway. So there is no reason to test.
