President Joe Biden hurt his vaccination efforts by unmasking America too soon, according to Dr. Leana Wen, a writer for The Washington Post.
“The single biggest mistake that the Biden administration made during this entire pandemic response — and I would argue in the entire Biden presidency — was back in May when the CDC said that vaccinated people can take off their mask, but did not have proof of vaccination attached to it,” Wen told Yahoo News. “And as a result, people understood the pandemic to be over them. The unvaccinated began behaving like they were vaccinated.”
Wen lamented returning to restrictions is now too difficult because “nobody’s listening anymore.”
