It's CNN. If Fauci told everyone to wear Hazmat suits in public henceforth, CNN would be airing sob story testimonials imploring people to wear Hazmat suits all the time.

I have no issues with masks. I wear one myself when in public. I'm against mandatory masks by law, though.

Typical CNN bs headline ,the truth is she can not take them home yet ....Because they are premature and still require specialized care.Premies are fragile and can not be rushed to mature,suck ,swallow ,breathe , on a exact timeline.Usually if all goes well and they do well enough,eat,digest,sleep with normal breathing patterns, then the team begins to consider discharge.

^^ I agree that yes, they can't go home because they are premature...BUT she can only see them for 4 hours a day and is scared that she will get covid-19 and be asymptomatic and give it to her babies. No one else can visit the babies. The "normal" trauma of being in a NICU and the baby-parent dyad separation is being further heightened by covid-19. It is heart-wrenching. People are selfish and concerned with themselves rather than society. There's a reason why adults during WW2 were called the greatest generation.
