Skip to comments.San Mateo County health officer assails 'fundamentally flawed' state watch list

"I wish to apologize to all the businesses that were closed this week," he wrote. "I am not supportive of these actions and, for San Mateo County, I believe they are misdirected and will cause more harm than good. This action is a bit like looking for your lost keys under a streetlight even though you lost them miles away. If you have read my previous statements, you know I put great import on balance. We have to minimize spread while not destroying everything else in the process."
"For those who want to drive the spread to zero, this is simply not possible," he said. "Even with the very restrictive measures put into place in the Spring, we could only drive the Re at that time to about 0.9. The best point estimate we currently have for Re is about 0.98. Our Re has also been slowly dropping for at least 4 weeks ... Over the last few weeks, our hospitalizations are stable and/or decreasing. Recently, our deaths have been low. Even with the current data meltdown at the State related to the counting of new cases, I remain of the same opinion."
"The brand new, arbitrary and constantly changing framework that the State has set up to put counties on the watch list and to determine closures (beyond the State floor) is fundamentally flawed in several ways," Morrow wrote. "This wouldnt matter so much, and I wouldnt pay that close attention to it, if there werent so much economic and societal damage at stake, economic and societal damage without a concomitant reduction in spread. To me it feels like some newly created bureaucratic box is just itching to be checked."

The data is in
This is truth speaking to power, as the lefties like to say.
from March 2020
And what do the Stats show when we click here for Santa Clara County Kiddies?
You will see two buttons next to each other "Cases" "Deaths"
Click on Deaths and you find
19 or under 0%
Deaths by Underlying Health Conditions (Comordibities)
1 or more Comordibities 81.1%
If we add the state relevant to risk, who should excercise risk aversion and risk to the economy we get
70 Years and older of the stats above 68.37%
Throw in 60+ and you get 84.7%
But the key determinent in cause of death is this number; 88.1% of all Covid-19 deaths had 1 or more comorbidities!!!
IRRC the annual flu has similar statistics as above
This is a viral and we have been dealing them intellectually and scientifically for over 150 years.
We know how to deal them and are very effective
Where does this leave us?
This has to end for it's amoral farce or it will soon be actionable...
Who is Morrow?
San Mateo County health officer
