California Governor Gavin Newsom is projecting that 56% of his state’s population will be infected by the Chinese coronavirus within two months, stating as such in a letter to President Trump.
“We project that roughly 56 percent of our population-25.5 million people- will be infected with the virus over an eight week period.”
Newsom is making the projection in light of an appeal for President Trump to deploy the U.S. Navy hospital ship Mercy to the port of Los Angeles.
Newsom’s appeal suggests California is expecting the most drastic outcome possible as part of the state’s coronavirus preparation.
But there’s ultimately ample reason to be doubtful of the governor’s worst-case scenario. There aren’t even 25.5 million people worldwide who have been diagnosed with Chinese coronavirus as of March 20th.
For half the state’s population to become infected with the disease, it would have to spread with far more vitality and contagious force than it has in China or Italy, the two countries hit the hardest by the disease. In China, where the virus struck before the global scientific community knew anything about it, authorities are giving total figures of around 81,000 infections.
There’s reason to be suspicious of China’s official figures, but it would be difficult for the Communist Party to cover up a whopping 25 million diagnosed cases.
There may very well be a compelling case for the deployment of the hospital ship to Los Angeles, as Newsom requests. Another hospital ship is already being sent to New York harbor, where the virus is strongest in the nation aside from its original entry point in Washington state. But claiming that California is going to be struck harder than China and Italy combined makes it hard to believe that the state is estimating its coronavirus needs in a sober-minded fashion.
Drug Overdose Deaths Spike Throughout U.S. as COVID-19 Lockdowns Cause Surge in Hopelessness, Despair
Blood is on the hands of the government officials instituting lockdown policies.
An analysis from the White House has shown that drug overdose deaths are spiking as the coronavirus pandemic lingers on, most likely due to lockdown policies that are causing a surge in hopelessness and despair.
Drug policy experts in the Trump administration have found a 11.4 percent in fatalities in 2020 over 2019. This is particularly shocking considering that the opiate crisis in America is still under way, and it is now worse than ever due to coronavirus panic.
“The pandemic has caused my level of concern to go up,” White House drug czar Jim Carroll said to POLITICO in an interview.
The problem has exacerbated considerably because a billion-dollar federal research program to discover new ways to treat addiction has been shelved because of the coronavirus pandemic. The human cost of the pandemic is immeasurable, and the negative ramifications will likely be felt for generations.
“The concerns we have are related to the big challenges people are facing right now with Covid: isolation and uncertainty resulting in very high levels of stress,” Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute for Drug Abuse, told POLITICO.
Some far-left public officials have made the situation even worse by subsidizing alcohol and drugs for destitute individuals during the lockdown.
Big League Politics reported on how dope was provided for homeless people by San Francisco authorities while they were holed up under quarantine:
The city of San Francisco, Calif. is giving out free alcohol and drugs to its homeless population that has been holed up in hotels during quarantine.
The city has already given booze, cigarettes, or marijuana to 43 homeless individuals in an attempt to reward them for staying put in the hotels. This is meant to keep them from wandering off and spreading coronavirus throughout the city.
San Francisco Department of Health spokeswoman Jenna Lane said: “They’re doing San Francisco a great service by staying inside. We’re saying, ‘We’re doing what we can to support you staying inside and not have to go out and get these things.’ ”
The city’s health department claimed in a tweet that this is a “harm reduction based practice” not funded by the taxpayer. However, they did not provide any documentation showing how this program is being privately funded in the tweet.
They claim that subsidizing substance abuse for the homeless helps “guests successfully complete isolation and quarantine and have significant individual and public health benefits in the COVID-19 pandemic.”
San Francisco has opened up hotels to house 270 homeless individuals who have either tested positive for coronavirus or been determined prone to infection. City officials are using drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as enticement tools to get the homeless to properly quarantine.
Dr. Grant Colfax, who works as the health director for the city, explained at a Wednesday press conference that the policy utilizes “the best evidence to help people manage their addictions.”
“In some cases, this will include helping them manage their alcohol and nicotine use so they can stay safe and in-place as much as possible to help their communities and help themselves,” Colfax said.
The blood is on the hands of political leaders in both major parties for how they have raped the Constitution throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
