Rochelle Walensky announced a "reset" for the organization amid public criticisms over its response to the coronavirus and monkeypox.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, in an agency-wide email Monday, said "it is time to take a step back and strategically position CDC to support the future of public health."
COVID-19 cases are dropping and the nation is moving toward restrictions being lifted — but we're not there yet, health experts said.
“I think what I have not conveyed is the uncertainty in a lot of these situations,” said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Rochelle Walensky called it “really encouraging” that most COVID-19 deaths among the vaccinated are of people with “at least four comorbidities.”
“It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate,” said CDC Director Rochelle Walensky.
More than 40 people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with the omicron variant so far, but nearly all of them were only mildly ill -- even the unvaccinated patients.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky's timeline update comes shortly after new pediatric coronavirus cases hit a record high.
“We need to come together as one nation," Dr. Rochelle Walenksy said, urging unvaccinated Americans to get their jabs.
Deaths from the virus are also rising, with an average of 239 per day over the last week. That's a near-48% rise from the week prior, said Dr. Rochelle Walensky.
