Why do we allow this? Politics always overrules public health?

Judge Blocks CDC Cruise Ship Rules

On one side we have the CDC with all their expertise on communicable disease and scientific planning, and on the other side we have Ron DeSantis and the Florida-based cruise ship companies. CDC comes up with rules that could make cruise ships relatively safe, and politics overrules them. And not even smart politics. The first American cruise since the pandemic started actually had two passengers who went positive for the virus once they were underway!
