Democrats predicted a massive surge of death from the coronavirus if America reopened.
Now they’re going to eat their words.
A top Democrat made a discovery in her coronavirus numbers that crashed her career.
The Democrats implied that reopening America was going to cause a huge surge in cases.
Former acting CDC director under President Barack Obama, Dr. Richard Besser, implied that reopening was a racial attack, saying on CNN, “If you have money and you’re white, you can do well here. If you’re not, good luck to you.”
The reality is that the lower income jobs are more affected by the shutdown.
CNN can go and claim that they care and that their reactions are being driven by science, but the stay-at-home measures were not driven by precise data.
Besser went on to say that until we have contact tracing, and every workplace has protective gear, Americans should not go back to work.
The shutdowns were put in place to make sure that the hospital systems don’t get overwhelmed, but there is no place in America where the health system is currently under stress.
The states that have lifted their lockdowns haven’t had a surge of new cases, in fact they’ve found that their coronavirus cases are decreasing.
What this probably means is that the coronavirus is heat sensitive and that weather plays a larger factor in stopping the virus than lockdowns.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is a radical liberal who was looking for legal measures she could take to stop Republican Governor of Georgia Brian Kemp from loosening the lockdown measures.
In fact, Bottoms promised that she’d say she was “wrong” to Kemp if there wasn’t a large spike in cases.
The terrible future Bottoms predicted failed to appear but she hasn’t said that she was “wrong.”
On MSNBC, Bottoms admitted that reopening hasn’t been as bad as she thought it would be, but she still wouldn’t say that she had been wrong.
“Is it a little muddier than being able to say, ‘I was right’ or ‘I was wrong’?” MSNBC anchor Brian Williams asked her. “Are we as of the time of this conversation somewhere in the middle, do you think?”
“Well, what I can say, Brian, is it’s not as bad as I thought that it would be,” Bottoms confessed.
“So, I am pleased about that, but I still think it’s too soon to say,” she continued. “The reason being, whereas initially, we were seeing increases between deaths and people testing positive, rising anywhere from 25 to 30 percent over a seven-day period. Right now, we’re somewhere between 12 and 15 percent. And it’s better than it was, but it’s still not great. We’ve still not seen that 14-day decline, as recommended by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).”
As states reopen and their numbers have not jumped up, the case for keeping the economy closed has become far weaker.
While coronavirus is still a serious problem for healthcare communities, keeping entire states under lockdown during the summer months is an act of lunacy.
