CDC Directer Calls BLM Protests A COVID-19 ‘Seeding Event’


CDC head Robert Redfield has faced wrath online after urging protesters to be tested for Covid-19 and lamenting that his agency’s message is not getting through. He was reminded of the CDC’s own clumsy response to the crisis.

During a congressional hearing on the government’s handling of the pandemic on Thursday, Redfield told lawmakers he was “very concerned” that the CDC’s message on the virus is not “resonating” with the public.

He warned that crowded anti-police brutality demonstrations held in scores of cities over the last week could propel a spike in new cases.
