The federal government won’t end up recommending that Americans start getting back to work by Easter, with President Donald Trump extending the Center for Disease Control’s ‘Social Distancing’ guidelines to April 30th.
President Trump announced the move in a press briefing of the national Coronavirus Task Force in the Rose Garden Sunday.
The strategy represents a departure from a suggestion raised by Trump earlier in the month, who accepts the need to place the national economy on hold to appropriately focus on combating the epidemic in the United States.
“Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory has been won,” stated the President. “Therefore we will be extending our guidelines to April 30.”
The guidelines suggest that Americans avoid congregating in groups of people more than ten and that most non-essential businesses and organizations physically close.
President Trump also mentioned that he’s considering to invoke further use of the Defense Production Act to marshal the manufacturing capabilities of private companies hesitant to accept government contracts to manufacture necessary supplies such as ventilators and masks.
Doctor Anthony Fauci, the President’s leading medical and scientific advisor on the efforts to contain the epidemic, suggested earlier Sunday that the disease could ultimately cause 200,000 fatalities nationwide. Such a prediction more than justifies the economically disruptive pause on everyday American life, even as some questionable economic interests ask that the President merely ignore the global pandemic and rush people back to work.
The President earlier declined to place an unprecedented national quarantine on the states of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, instead opting for a Center for Disease Control Travel Warning.
Now’s the time for Americans of all kinds to unite and focus their national efforts wholly on containing the novel disease.
POLL: The Wealthy, Those with Graduate Degrees Thriving During COVID Pandemic as Working People Suffer
No wonder they support draconian COVID measures the most.
New polling from Morning Consult reveals that some of the demographics most supportive of draconian coronavirus lockdown measures are personally gaining the most during their implementation.
In a December poll with over 2,200 respondents, Americans with a post-graduate education and those who already make over $100,000 a year reported their personal prospects improving during 2020.
Americans who work in the technology and finance industries were unlikely to face ramifications from lockdown measures from begin with, suggesting it’s no surprise that they’d support draconian measures the most.
The polling data correlates with other information suggesting that the biggest ‘winners’ and wealthiest interests in American and western society have prospered as everyday people have suffered during the coronavirus pandemic. Globalist oligarchs leading multinational corporations have transferred obscene amounts of wealth to themselves, much of it coming as they corner market share previously belonging to small businesses that can only operate as a physical retail enterprise. In tried and true fashion, the biggest supporters of the most draconian lockdown measures don’t stand to suffer their consequences, and in fact reap their rewards.
Everyday Americans of various stripes are the ones that need the most assistance from the ravages of the pandemic, not the wealthy elite. The economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic can’t be turned off by alleviating the draconian restrictions still in place in many of America’s progressive-Democrat states, but allowing small business owners to pick up the pieces is the first in many steps required to reverse the obscene ‘Great Reset’ of power and wealth in favor of the billionaire class.
