The CDC chief caught many off guard in saying the Delta variant is 'behaving uniquely' and that vaccinated people should wear masks inside again


The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also said everyone should wear masks in school — students, teachers, staff and visitors.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said new data had convinced her the Delta variant was “behaving uniquely.” She said the evidence indicated that fully vaccinated people who have breakthrough infections involving Delta may be as likely to transmit virus to others as unvaccinated people are.

Plus, she said, people living in areas of high or sustained transmission should start wearing masks in public again — even if they are vaccinated — because of the higher risk of becoming infected when more virus is circulating.

This as the CDC issued a health alert and held a rare briefing Tuesday to warn that the Delta variant was spreading more rapidly than previous variants, and urging people to mask back up and get vaccinated.

Had the CDC been doing more to report breakthrough infections, the change to the masking guidance might not have taken the country so much by surprise.

Defense Department has had about 2,000 breakthrough Covid cases

Instead, the seemingly sudden change in guidance looked like a flip-flop.

And it calls into question President Joe Biden’s repeated promises that his administration would not only follow the science, but would be transparent and open about it.

No vaccine is 100% effective and studies are showing that while the three authorized vaccines protect well against serious disease and illness, they are less effective in preventing any type of infection, including a mild case of Covid-19 or asymptomatic infection.

The CDC has tracked serious infections requiring hospitalization and deaths among fully vaccinated people. But it’s not publishing that data in a timely manner, and it has stopped national tracking of mild and asymptomatic infections.

That makes it hard to know if fully vaccinated people are, in fact, less likely to pass along the infection to others. It’s hard to say whether people infected with the Delta variant despite having been vaccinated are more likely to infect others.

And it’s hard to be confident that the virus is not infecting millions of fully vaccinated people and perhaps evolving in their bodies under pressure from a vaccinated immune system — a scenario that is unlikely but that could, in theory, give rise to new vaccine-impervious variants.

“I think it is important to track the symptomatic breakthrough infections. It is important to track hospitalizations and deaths — but if you don’t track all symptomatic ones, from the epidemiology point of view you don’t know the frequency and severity of those symptomatic breakthrough infections,” David Holtgrave, dean of the School of Public Health at the University at Albany, State University of New York, told CNN.

“Plus, you miss the opportunity to follow up with a sample of people with symptomatic breakthrough infections to see if they develop long haul symptoms. I don’t think we have a good handle on that. We could use better data.”

How worried should vaccinated people be about Covid-19 breakthrough infections?

This lack of data could also have the effect of reducing vaccine confidence, Holtgrave said.

“If you want to be able to assure the nation that breakthrough infections are rare — and I believe symptomatic breakthrough infections are relatively rare even in the time of the Delta variant — you have to be able to say ‘we went out and looked very hard for those infections and we didn’t find many and when we did, they weren’t that severe,'” Holtgrave said.

“You are only as reassuring as the extent to which you went out and looked.”

The CDC did do this in looking for rare side-effects from the Covid-19 vaccines, including a rare blood clotting condition linked with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and an unusual inflammatory response affecting the heart called myocarditis linked with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

CDC promises more data

Walensky promised more data is forthcoming.

“In the coming days, you will actually see the published information on the science that motivated this change,” she told CNN’s New Day Wednesday.

She made a similar promise Tuesday.

“We are collecting passive reporting data on people who are hospitalized and who have died, but we recognize that, epidemiologically, that is not going to give us the best information with regard to rates of breakthrough infection, because passive data collection is generally underreported,” Walensky told reporters in a telephone briefing.

“In order to counter that, we have been collecting data through more than 20 cohorts of people. These include tens of thousands of people who we are following nationwide, and they include health care workers, essential workers, long-term care facilities, and in some of these cohorts, we’re collecting PCR (test) data from every person in them weekly,” Walensky added.

“So we are absolutely studying and evaluating breakthrough infections in many different sites, many different people, across the country. We are looking at those data on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and we will be reporting on those soon.”

Following people and testing them weekly, whether they show symptoms or not, is the best way to track asymptomatic infections.

Covid-19 breakthrough infections are preventable, but it's going to take a big effort to stop them

Having the number of mild and asymptomatic breakthrough infections would also help people better judge the risk of developing a severe infection despite having been vaccinated, said Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist and senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.

“The number gets reported but not having the denominator makes it harder to put into context,” Nuzzo told CNN. It might reassure people to know that while there are many breakthrough infections, only a very small percentage of them are severe enough to cause concern.

“There is a public fascination with people who contracted Covid despite being vaccinated and I think we need a way to answer that,” Nuzzo added.

It wouldn’t even be necessary to count every single case, she said. A systematic sample — like the cohorts Walensky described — could be sufficient.

Dr. Tom Frieden, a former CDC director who is now CEO of health advocacy group Resolve to Save Lives, makes a similar point.

“It is neither necessary nor wise for our public health systems to attempt to track every single breakthrough case that causes no or only mild symptoms,” he wrote in a recent opinion piece for CNN.
New York Yankees' breakthrough infections demonstrate the Covid-19 vaccine works. Here's why

“There are simply going to be too many, and there is little benefit to tracking illnesses that are no worse than a cold. Instead, it makes sense — as is being done — to do special studies of all breakthrough infections as part of specific population-based studies, and also to try to track every severe Covid illness after vaccination,” he added.

“This should give us much better information about who is most at risk of serious illness from Covid after vaccination,and might lead to different dosing recommendations for some groups.”

Having more data on breakthroughs might also help epidemiologists better track changes in how the virus is spreading, Nuzzo said.

“I’d like to see more sequencing to see chains of transmission and clusters and where people are getting sick,” she said.

Giving ammunition to vaccine resistance

Better data on breakthrough infections would also support the argument for vaccinating the entire population to provide herd immunity.

The lack of data to back up the changed guidance gave an opening to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and other Republican governors to say the changing guidance would diminish confidence in the vaccine — and to double down on their refusal to do more to get their citizens to get vaccinated and wear masks.

It also creates the impression that the new guidance was issued for political reasons.

“Do you really think that CDC has changed mask guidance for vaccinated adults, to use Dr. Walensky’s words, because … a vaccinated person may transmit virus to an unvaccinated person? No,” Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University, told CNN Tuesday night.

“They changed guidance to do the right thing, which was to force basically unvaccinated people to be vaccinated.”

Some people who are resisting vaccination say it’s a personal choice, affecting only themselves.

Dr. Paul Offit would beg to differ.

“There’s an old study of measles transmission between 1999 and 2000. It’s going to sound counterintuitive, what they found but if you think about it, it makes sense,” Offit, a vaccine adviser to the FDA and director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, told CNN’s Jim Acosta last week.

“Obviously, you were least likely to get measles if you were vaccinated living in a highly vaccinated community. But you were actually more likely to get measles if you were vaccinated living in a highly unvaccinated community than if you were unvaccinated living in a highly vaccinated community,” Offit said.

That’s in line with what the CDC said Tuesday. The CDC might benefit from showing its sources, also.

ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill dead at 72



“We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX,” the statement, from surviving members Frank Beard and Billy Gibbons, said. “We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’.”

The band was formed in 1969. Hill joined not long after, staying with ZZ Top for more than five decades, until his death. Hill performed alongside Beard and Gibbons and together they went on to have a string of hits and put out 15 studio albums. Among their most famous hits are “La Grange,” “Tush,” and “Gimme All Your Lovin’.”

Hill was born in Dallas, and after trying to break into the music scene there he eventually moved to Houston where he met Gibbons.

Back in July, the band’s official site shared that Hill was being sidelined due to a “hip issue.”

The band’s longtime guitar tech, Elwood Francis, stepped in for Hill.

“Per Dusty’s request, ‘The show must go on!” the band had written in a statement.

Although Gibbons was the lead vocalist for most of the band’s songs, Hill stepped up to sing “Tush,” an early hit for the band. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

You may have even seen him on screen in various appearances like “Back to the Future Part III” and on “Deadwood.”

“You will be missed greatly, amigo,” Beard and Gibbons’s statement added.

House Republicans revolt over reimposed mask mandate


One day after Capitol Attending Physician Dr. Brian Monahan reinstated a mask mandate in the House of Representatives, many House Republicans purposefully defied the rules by appearing on the floor maskless.

GOP Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida was seen without a mask walking off the House floor on Wednesday even though he told reporters he is not vaccinated.

“I have not been vaccinated. I have had Covid-19. I’ve recovered,” Donalds told reporters.

When asked why he did not wear a mask on the House floor, Donalds said, “This rule is stupid. Let’s just be very blunt about this.”

“The Senate has no rules, so it’s funny how Covid operates differently here than in the Senate,” he added.

Masks and vaccine mandate show CDC and Biden taking emergency action amid Covid-19 surge

Democratic Rep. Jared Huffman of California got into a yelling match with Donalds outside the chamber over mask wearing.

Huffman, in a mask, said Donalds was selfish for not wearing one. Donalds responded, “Don’t be worried about me! Mind your business!”

Republicans tried twice to have the House adjourn as the result of boiling frustration over the new guidance. Rep. Chip Roy, one of many right-wing Republicans to go maskless on Wednesday, gave an impassioned floor speech about why he was not wearing a mask when he made the first attempt to adjourn the House.

Arguing that the mask mandate breeds resentment among members, Roy said on the House floor, “No kidding. Consider resentment being magnified right here in the floor of the House of Representatives. We are absolutely sick and tired of it. And so are the American people. This shame of an institution is doing nothing for the American people.”

“This institution is a sham. And we should adjourn and shut this place down,” added the Texas Republican, who last week refused to tell CNN his vaccination status.

GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Andy Biggs of Arizona gave Roy a standing ovation after his floor remarks, all without wearing masks.

CNN spotted at least 24 Republicans who chose not to wear masks on the House floor Wednesday.

Trump and DeSantis choose politics over science as mask wars roar back to life

When Boebert came to the floor, she threw a mask back at a floor staffer when she was offered one while trying to walk onto the floor maskless, according to a witness account relayed to CNN.

Boebert’s office defended the Colorado freshman’s actions in a statement to CNN: “Rep. Boebert refuses to comply with Speaker Pelosi’s anti-science, totalitarian mask mandate. When offered a mask, she returned it with a quick slide across the table.”

Asked later by CNN if she plans to keep defying the rules and get fined, Boebert said, “If we cede our freedoms here, there is no chance for the people that I represent back home.”

Greene was defiant when asked by CNN if she plans to put a mask on. “Do you see a mask on my face?” she asked. “I think that’s the answer to your question.”

The resentment from Republicans over mask wearing also led to an exchange of insults between each party’s leadership. Pelosi called McCarthy a “moron” on Wednesday morning after being asked by a reporter about the California Republican’s criticism of the Capitol physician’s mask mandate in the House.

McCarthy responded by saying, “Well, if she’s so brilliant can she tell me where the science in the building changes between the House and the Senate?” — pointing out that masks are now required in the House but only recommended in the Senate.

McCarthy was spotted on the House floor Wednesday wearing a mask.

Based on the House rules, members first get warnings for evading mask rules, then $500 fines for second offenses and $2,500 for offenses after that. The House Committee on Ethics has issued a considerable number of fines and warnings since the mask rule was first instated. Members had been allowed to be on the House floor without masks since June 11, but the House attending physician reversed that guidance Tuesday night as the Delta variant emerges as the dominant strain of Covid across the country and in light of new US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance.

Anti-mask protesters forced a Florida school board to postpone a meeting about back-to-school requirements

The whiplash of the change in mask guidance has also bred some confusion among members.

Democratic Rep. Josh Harder of California walked in to vote from outside and wasn’t even aware there was a mask mandate. Staff asked him to put a mask on and he responded, “Oh, they’re required?”

Underlying the mask debate that is back to being front and center among members in the House is the question of how many members are still not vaccinated. CNN reported in May that 100% of House Democrats had been vaccinated but only 44.8% of House Republicans were known to have gotten the shots. Just last week, still nearly half of House Republicans would not share their vaccination status.

Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin sent a letter to the House attending physician asking how many members have yet to confirm whether they’ve been vaccinated, underscoring how questions about vaccine status underpin the debate over masks.

When Roy’s motion to adjourn failed, Democratic Rep. Joe Morelle of New York admonished his Republican colleagues for refusing to wear masks on the House floor.

“I note a great irony, Mr. Speaker,” Morelle said. “We face enormous challenges in our country and in our world, but the members who refuse to wear masks on the floor in the face of rising infections of a deadly Delta variant, particularly in states with low vaccination rates, respond to all of this by making a motion to adjourn, to go home, to quit, to stop working. How ironic.”
