We reported yesterday on the reimposition of severe “sledgehammer” economic lockdowns across Europe because of rising infection rates. Is this lame-brained policy coming back to these shores?
Here’s the White House answer yesterday:
“We are not headed in that direction. We have the tools to accelerate the path out of this pandemic; widely available vaccinations, booster shots, kid shots, therapeutics,” White House COVID-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients told reporters. “We can curb the spread of the virus without having to in any way shut down our economy.”
Amen! Hold that thought.
Biden admin gets it right!
