Skip to comments.All that bar-hopping and spring-breaking: Press ignores protests as source of new wave of COVID-19
Posted on 06/28/2020 6:47:56 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
With a new wave, or peak, of Chinese coronavirus cases shutting much of the country down again, and news getting out about how it's younger people being infected, the press is blaming bar-hopping and spring break travel. And in the case of the Washington Post, President Trump's rally in Arizona, too. Here's one account from the Washington Post:
Health officials are imploring young people to wear masks and practice social distancing as coronavirus transmission among younger Americans continues to drive record outbreaks in several states.
The pleas come as governors in Texas and Florida instituted new limits on bars and alcohol consumption to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, citing the skyrocketing number of young people who are contracting it.
Anything to ignore the elephant in the room: raw, undistanced, unprotected, mass protests over the police-brutality death of George Floyd. The Washington Post actually excuses the protests.
Curiously, the new wave of cases among young people now coincides with the waves of unprotected protests and lootings - five-, ten-day incubation periods, meaning the cases were contracted right about when the protests and lootings were going on. Apparently, everyone was out bar-hopping, according to the press reports seen now. Yet the anecdotal evidence is everywhere:
Just a reminder that Nashville Mayor Chicken Cooper @JohnCooper4Nash encouraged people to join him in protests a month ago, now we have an uptick in COVID cases, a 34% prop tax increase and now mandatory mask infringements. — Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) June 26, 2020

It’s well worth the effort to wear a mask.
We need to stop calling it mainstream media and mainstream press. When they openly take the side of Antifa...they’re not mainstream. WE are the new mainstream. They are fringe.
Good! If one can protest, one should be able to do whatever else he/she/it wants to. Just don't go to church!
All the news that fits — the liberal agenda.
The spike in cases is because of the screaming and shouting and spitting on everyone by lying protesters.
The “spike” is actually not because they are testing more people - although they are - but because they are testing people with no symptoms, particularly in groups - that is, coworkers, etc. So all it indicates is that these people had the disease, it was so mild they didn’t even know they had it, and now that they are being tested, they are turning up positive.
So the riots and masks in general aren’t the issue? No one is washing their hands and burning their clothes after being in contact with other humans? When these a##holes sink the economy for good what is the plan for utopia?
Earth people and that sly angel of light have very little time left.
Nancy wants to mandate wearing masks , she says Real Men Wear Masks ,LOL
Are you going to repeat that come Flu season?
What does alcohol do to viruses, ethanol in particular?
Cover something in alcohol then burning off the alcohol works wonders in terms of killing off germs. Too bad a flaming moe is from the Simpsons and not real life.
I refer to them as the Ministry of Truth.
Gov.Cuomo and his punky kid brother, and DeBlasio all spread the Chinese Virus by unabashed kissing of leftists' rear ends. Chapped lips from kissing the BLM ones alone.
I noticed that the media deliberately and intentionally refused to make any connection between the rioting and the increased infection.
The press follows the Carville/Begala playbook.
For short periods of time, yes. I have been wearing one at work since March. I have daily symptoms of fatigue and fuzziness and lack of focus. Each sympto. Resolves within an hour or two of getting home. I usually work 12 to 15 hour days.
It is ridiculous to breathe in mask particulates. The lungs do not take kindly to it, esp as it accumulates. Evidence: see mini g history, firefighters and 9/11 first responders.
The press ignores the real source, the southern border.
Austin, TX police are having an “alarming” number of new cases that are being blamed on the rioters yelling and spitting in cops’ faces.
HEB grocery chain is limiting purchases again and mandatory masks.
Hundreds of high school kids near Austin last weekend had their annual alcohol Pong Fest. Virus cases are starting to pop up from that.
Austin and Houston coliseums are prepping for CV hospital over flow.
Austin mayor says you’re 3X more likely to catch virus today than two weeks ago. Yes, there is a HUGE spike in TX. Here in my county, new cases have risen 4-5 times more in the past two weeks.
