New York Storefronts Boarded Up as Burglaries Rise 75%

A sign of possible civil unrest.

Published

Retail establishments in New York City have begun to board up their storefronts as the Chinese coronavirus shuts down the city, and the NYPD reports an alarming 75% increase in burglaries since the start of the city’s state of emergency.

The NYPD has reported 254 burglaries of businesses since March 12th, when Mayor Bill de Blasio enacted a state of emergency. There were 145 during the same time period last year, entailing a 75% increase this year.

Some retail establishments in the city have taken to boarding up their storefronts, especially retailers of luxury goods. Witnesses describe a Soho Louis Vuitton as having boarded up its windows, and Manhattan Dolce and Gabbana stores. Some bars and restaurants prevented from operating in a fashion that would allow them to carry out delivery and takeout orders have also boarded up their storefronts.

Concerns that the New York Police Department may be unable to prevent desperate or opportunistic burglars from ransacking businesses may be fueling the desire to board up storefronts. Several NYPD officers have already been diagnosed with the coronavirus, and those that remain active are stretched thin in responding to near-constant emergency calls.

Scenes of New York City’s public places reveal that once-jam packed locations are now completely empty, as the public genuinely avoids leaving their homes during the unprecedented medical epidemic. Imagery of the Brooklyn Bridge last month showed the landmark completely abandoned.

The boarding up certainly paints a picture of an atmosphere of civil unrest and danger, and some community members are questioning if the stark measure is fully necessary or appropriate.

Published

Los Angeles County officials have issued a three-week stay-at-home order on the county’s ten million residents, returning life to the first months of Chinese coronavirus lockdown for Los Angelenos.

The lockdown, which will last from November 30th to December 20th, will urge residents of the county to stay in their homes. Church services and protests are permitted. Businesses and organizations are being required to enact strict occupancy limits, with businesses deemed essential by the county allowed to accommodate more patrons than others.

Restaurants in Los Angeles were ordered to suspend outdoor dining just two days ago, with county officials determining that such behavior was spreading the virus. The restaurant and business community have warned that repeating lengthy shutdowns could permanently cripple the city’s dining industry.

The lockdown comes as Los Angeles has incurred 4,751 new diagnosed cases of Chinese coronavirus within the past five days. Los Angeles public health officials had earlier created guidelines which would recommend the county take public health action if more than 4,500 new cases occurred over such a time frame. Hospitalizations and deaths have also surged, but the disease has generally proven to be less lethal on a per-capita case basis than it was at the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic in America.

With the recent surge of COVID-19 across our community, we must take additional safety measures to reduce the risk of illness and death from this terrible virus and protect our healthcare system,” said L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer.

Democrat-aligned states and urban communities have generally, but consistently incurred the worst outbreaks of the coronavirus pandemic in America. Unfortunately, it may ultimately prove that repeating lockdown measures instituted by local officials isn’t sufficient to deter its spread.
