The Biden administration is facing sharp criticism for its response to the coronavirus as the highly contagious omicron variant continues across the U.S. uncontained.
At a heated Senate hearing yesterday, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci exchanged words over COVID strategy. And former Biden advisers last week, in a series of published articles, faulted the White House for not doing more.
Today on Wellness Wednesday on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we discuss what a new federal COVID strategy should look like. We'll also discuss the first-of-its-kind CBD ad that is airing on major TV networks and the history of sterilization in the U.S. in light of a growing number of men who are signing up for vasectomies.
