The White House press secretary made the frank admission when she was asked at the daily briefing if the American public was tuning out scientists on the steps they should be taking, even after vaccination.
“We believe that health and medical experts should be our north star,” said Ms Psaki,
“As more people will be vaccinated there will be less and less need for certain restrictions and the CDC has said it will continue to evaluate the science and update their guidelines.
“Our objective is to make sure that the American people have confidence that we are leaning into, not making political decisions, but leaning into the advice and counsel of medical experts.”
Psaki said the White House had not told the CDC that it should speed up the loosening of its guidelines, but acknowledged the frustration of the country.
“Sometimes people will feel that it’s too slow, we understand, it is frustrating, I’m tired of wearing a mask too.
“We understand how the American people are feeling but we feel it is important to maintain that commitment.”
