Yale Professor Calls Out Biden’s ‘Failing’ Leadership Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic
On Tuesday, a Yale University professor published an op-ed with The Washington Post about how President Biden’s leadership during the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic is “failing.”
Gregg Gonsalves, who is an associate professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health and associate professor at Yale Law School, wrote that Biden’s efforts to get Americans fully vaccinated against the virus, provide millions of Americans with rapid at-home tests, and provide masks during mask mandates have not lessened the severity of the pandemic and have not been effective.
“The president’s main call was for Americans to get vaccinated. That’s a fine refrain, except we still have millions without a single jab,” Gonsalves wrote. “The president was eager to point out that under his watch, 200 million people were fully vaccinated — except we know now that we require boosters to protect against omicron and only about 60 million Americans have had that additional jab.”
Additionally, Gonsalves notes that Biden told those spreading vaccine “misinformation” to “stop it,” which he calls “far from the campaign we need to address the anti-vaccine propaganda circulating widely in the United States.” But, Gonsalves added that efforts to get people vaccinated should not have been the Biden administration’s sole focus when it comes to handling the pandemic.
“We already know vaccines alone will not solve this problem. The president made a bet in March that vaccination could return the country to some semblance of normalcy, promising a ‘summer of freedom.’ But as the delta variant emerged, the highly transmissible strain tore through the country, outpacing the speech of our vaccination efforts,” he wrote.
