Harvard Ramps Up COVID Security Theater By Moving Business Classes Online Despite High Vaccination Rate

Harvard Business School ramped up its COVID-19 security theater this week by moving all of its first and second-year MBA classes online following a total of “121 cases among MBA students since July 1.”

In addition to completing coursework online, students in the Harvard Business School will also be required to get tested for COVID-19 three times a week. Harvard made the decision to move MBA classes online after what it labeled “a steady rise in breakthrough infections” among its graduate students. Even though the school brags a 95 percent COVID-19 vaccination rate among students and a 96 percent COVID-19 vaccination rate among its staff after it used the shot as a requirement for fall enrollment, administrators claimed that shutting down students’ educational and social interactions was the best move to curb the virus.

Business school spokesman Mark Cautela admitted in a statement that virus transmission “is not occurring in classrooms or other academic settings on campus,” but the university still decided to keep any in-person MBA classes online until at least Oct. 3. The business school also demanded that students avoid indoor events that do not require masks and contact with people outside of their households.

In addition to playing into the COVID-19 tyranny heralded by most U.S. universities, Harvard’s decision comes in light of President Joe Biden’s speech on Monday in which he all but admitted that more than 97 or 98 percent of Americans will need to get the COVID-19 vaccine before the United States can return to normal.

“How many Americans need to be vaccinated for us to get back to normal?” a reporter asked.

“I think we get the vast majority … 97 percent, 98 percent. I think we’ll get awful close,” Biden told reporters while he received a dose of his COVID-19 booster shot on camera. “But I’m not the scientist. I think one thing is for certain. A quarter of the country can’t go unvaccinated and us not continue to have a problem.”
