CDC Director Rochelle Walensky Sunday morning refuted Justice Sotomayor’s statement that more than 100,000 children are hospitalized due to Covid.
During oral arguments on Friday, Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor falsely claimed that over 100,000 children are hospitalized and in serious condition because of Covid.
“Many are on ventilators,” Sotomayor said.
This is a lie.
Walensky refuted Sotomayor during an interview with Bret Bair on Fox News Sunday.
“The number’s not 100,000. It’s roughly 3,500 in hospitals now?” Bret Bair asked.
“Yes,” Walensky replied.
Bair also asked Walensky if she felt “a responsibility as the CDC director to correct a very big mischaracterization by one of the Supreme Court justices?”
She refused to give a direct answer.
