Thank you Irving for you great summary of these important documents. The scientific debate invited itself forcefully in the public space during the pandemic and probably one of the sources of confusion in the general public is the difficulty to understand that scientific consensus, if that ever exists, can take very, very long time to reach. Hence the importance of these quotes:
“…Address the mischaracterization of science information by carefully explaining the processes used to arrive at a scientific consensus, highlighting questions for which at present we have no answer and therefore need additional research…”
“…scientific advice has changed somewhat over time. Indeed, an essential ingredient of science is that findings can and should be subject to detailed scrutiny and, as a result, initial conclusions can be modified...”
