Biden’s COVID Czar Says WHAT About Kids?

Neil Cavuto and Dr. Ashish Jha

( – More than two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, President Joe Biden’s COVID Czar wants parents to take a specific step to protect their children from the virus.

Dr. Ashish Jha, employed by the federal government as Biden’s COVID-19 response coordinator, wants parents to keep masking their children.

According to the Daily Caller, Jha appeared on Fox News and was interviewed by Neil Cavuto.

“President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 response coordinator, Dr. Ashish Jha, said Thursday that parents should still be masking children and that local COVID-19 restrictions may need to return as cases rise.

“In an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Jha was asked point blank if he believes ‘little kids’ should still be wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Jha did not explicitly answer yes, but deflected to ‘experts’ who all recommend that kids still mask.

“‘That is what both the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends, that’s what the CDC recommends, so I really do follow the experts on this,’ Jha answered. ‘I believe that if America’s pediatricians are making those recommendations, I’m certainly going to take that pretty seriously.’”

Still, as the Daily Caller notes:

“Not all experts recommend that children wear masks. The World Health Organization (WHO) does not recommend that pre-adolescent kids wear masks due to the potential impact on ‘learning and psychosocial development.’ Numerous American infectious disease experts, from Dr. Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford to Dr. Martin Kulldorff, formerly of Harvard, argue that kids don’t need masks.”

So perhaps the case for children wearing COVID masks is not as cut and dried as Biden’s COVID Czar would like the American public to believe.
