A CNN analyst says Biden should curtail the freedoms of Americans who haven’t received a Covid-19 vaccination, stating that there’s a “narrow window” for him to act before more states start lifting lockdowns.
CNN analyst Leana Wen asked “Because otherwise, if everything is reopened, then what’s the carrot going to be? How are we going to incentivize people to actually get the vaccine?”
“So that’s why I think the CDC and the Biden administration needs to come out a lot bolder and say, “If you are vaccinated, you can do all these things. Here are all these freedoms that you have,” she continued. “Because otherwise, people are going to go out and enjoy these freedoms anyway.”
“The window to do that is really narrowing,” Wen added. “[All these states are] reopening at 100%. And we have a very narrow window to tie reopening policy to vaccination status.”
Wen made the statement on March 10, but it gained notoriety on Thursday when it was spread on Twitter.
