A new statement from President Biden on the spread of COVID is being criticized on Twitter for its inconsistency with other statements.
Earlier in the week, Biden defended enacting vaccine mandates on the grounds that people who go to the hospital for treatment should not have the risk of being exposed to COVID-19.
"We're making sure healthcare workers are vaccinated because if you seek care at a healthcare facility, you should have the certainty that the people providing that care are protected from COVID and cannot spread it to you," Biden said.
However, this statement is inconsistent with the CDC’s recent narrative that vaccinated individuals can still spread COVID. Despite the apparent “misinformation,” Twitter did not flag the statement as such.
“This is misinformation @Twitter. We all know the vaccinated are spreading COVID. Remember? That's why they have to wear masks too!” journalist Megan Fox tweeted.
“Correct me if I'm wrong but I was led to believe that the vaccination didn't prevent you from getting covid or spreading it,” one user tweeted. “It just reduced the intensity of the symptoms if you were infected.”
“But vaccinated people still have to wear masks (unless you're a Democrat politician or celebrity) because....” another user added.
As of Saturday afternoon, the White House has not issued a statement to clarify the president’s comments.
