On Sunday the liberal, untrustworthy director of the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) had to respond to blatantly wrong statements made by one of the radicals on the Supreme Court which made were during oral arguments concerning the Biden COVID vaccines mandates.
In a rare moment, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky contradicted Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s incorrect claim that there are 100,000 pediatric COVID hospitalizations on Sunday.
Justice Sotomayor, a liberal Associate Justice appointed by former President Obama, exaggerated the number of severe COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations among children as she attempted to convince conservative Supreme Court justices that President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for businesses should be enforced.
‘We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators,’ Sotomayor said on Friday.
Walensky contradicted Sotomayor’s claim during a segment of Fox News Sunday.
‘The number is not 100,000. It’s roughly 3500 in hospitals now?’ asked host Bret Baier.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky refutes Justice Sotomayor’s statement that “over 100,000 children” are hospitalized due to COVID, with “many on ventilators”:

‘Yes. In fact, what I will say is, while pediatric hospitalizations are rising, they’re still about 15 fold less than hospitalizations of our older age or age demographic,’ Walinsky answered.
Sotomayor’s intentional or ignorantly skewed over-exaggerations – which can be easily debunked with data reported by the CDC – follow her overly-cautious response to the pandemic, with her choosing to join Friday’s hearing virtually.
As of January 8, the number of hospitalization in children in the US is roughly 5,000, while the number of such hospitalizations has not surpassed the 84,000 cumulative since August 2020.
In the US, COVID-19 deaths are declining, even as Omicron cases have jumped to staggering numbers. The country currently reports more than 59.8 million infections, while the seven-day average for deaths is at just above 1,500 – a decrease from September.
While pediatric hospitalizations for COVID-19 in the US have reached the highest case count ever reported since the start of the pandemic, the Associate Justice’s false claim exaggerated figures more than 20 times.
Walensky also added that the vast majority of children hospitalized with COVID-19 are unvaccinated, and often present underlying conditions such as obesity.
She added that the CDC will provide data on ‘how many of the 836,000 deaths in the US linked to COVID are from COVID and how many are with COVID.’
Nearly 7.9 million American children have tested positive for COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic, or more than 1 in 10.
For the week ending December 30, more than 325,000 children were diagnosed with COVID-19, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, a 64percent increase compared to the week prior.
Children were 0.00percent – 0.27percent of COVID-19 deaths. About 600 Americans under the age of 18 have died of COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic.
Many of the problems we are experiencing in the United States Of America are a direct result of radical Justices affecting rulings on the highest court in the land.
Instead of ensuring laws are Constitutional, they have instead become cheerleaders for progressive causes.
They have even “found rights” in the Constitution such as a women’s right to kill her baby in the womb, for homo-sexual marriage to be legal nationally, and as Cheif Justice Roberts has done a few times, change the intent of the laws presented to the court, to make them legal, such as he did with Obama Care penalty.
