Nearly everyone Infected at Atlanta CDC event with COVID-19
The CDC conference was held in April
Nearly all attendees infected with COVID-19 at an event by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were vaccinated, according to a survey the agency conducted.
In April, about 1,800 CDC staffers and others attended a CDC conference in a hotel in Atlanta, Ga., where the agency is headquartered, for a conference about epidemiological investigations and strategies, The Epoch Times reported.
On the last day of the conference, April 27, several attendees notified the event organizers that they had tested positive for COVID. The CDC, along with the Georgia Department of Public Health, surveyed attendees to determine how many tested positive.
In a statement on Friday, the CDC said, “The goals were to learn more about transmission that occurred and add to our understanding as we transition to the next phase of COVID-19 surveillance and response.”
About 80% of attendees completed the survey, which is approximately 1,440 people. Of the respondents, 181 said they tested positive for COVID. A total of 99.4% of respondents had received at least one COVID vaccine dose.
There was no disclosure of how many unvaccinated people, if any, were infected with COVID.
Dr. Eric Topol, director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, tweeted an article about the CDC’s findings from the event on Saturday, saying, “When a recent CDC conference is a superspreader event.”
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
