Mom explains CDC document on “camps” for preventing COVID-19

Megan Howell released a video explaining a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) document that clearly lays out some honestly terrifying plans called “Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the Shielding Approach to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in Humanitarian Settings.” You can read it here or here for yourself.

This is a document straight from the CDC and Howell reads it line-by-line. The document was published in 2020 but has been updated and still exists on the website. The government is leaving nothing to the imagine about their plans.

For example, they explain their “shielding approach” as:

The shielding approach aims to reduce the number of severe COVID-19 cases by limiting contact between individuals at higher risk of developing severe disease (“high-risk”) and the general population (“low-risk”). High-risk individuals would be temporarily relocated to safe or “green zones” established at the household, neighborhood, camp/sector or community level depending on the context and setting.1,2 They would have minimal contact with family members and other low-risk residents.

Emphasis ours.

And how would this work exactly, say, in a neighborhood?

A designated shelter/group of shelters (max 5-10 households), within a small camp or area where high-risk members are grouped together. Neighbors “swap” households to accommodate high-risk individuals.

What? Swapping households? Who is going to make a family swap homes? Megan suggests what the CDC means below is that guards will be at these sites as enforcers:

Dedicated staff need to be identified to monitor each green zone. Monitoring includes both adherence to protocols and potential adverse effects or outcomes due to isolation and stigma. It may be necessary to assign someone within the green zone, if feasible, to minimize movement in/out of green zones.

And who does the CDC want to staff these camps since, in theory, people will be too sick to care for themselves?

To minimize external contact, each green zone should include able-bodied high-risk individuals capable of caring for residents who have disabilities or are less mobile.  Otherwise, designate low-risk individuals for these tasks, preferably who have recovered from confirmed COVID-19 and are assumed to be immune.

Again, this is directly from the CDC website.
