Go back to March. Which was the first state in the U.S. to lock down hard?
The Golden State’s ruler, Governor Gavin Newsom, ordered the 40 million people in the nation’s most populous state to not leave their homes. Newsom had declared,
“I don’t believe the people of California need to be told through law enforcement that it’s appropriate just to home-isolate, protect themselves… We are confident that the people of the state of California will abide by it and do the right thing.”
Now, nearly ten months later, the “right thing” proved wrong. With California being one of the most locked-down, masked-up states in the union, Newsom has again asked residents to stay home, and they should limit any non-essential travel within the state to 120 miles to prevent the virus’s spread to additional counties.
The state already has a stay-at-home order in place from November requiring face masks for any activity that includes people from outside one’s household.
TRENDPOST: In California, to date, there have been some 30,000 deaths attributed to the coronavirus since last March. This compares to some 40,000 virus deaths in New York State with a population half the size of California.
- The mainstream media champions New York’s Governor Cuomo as a COVID War hero despite registering 10,000 more deaths in a state half the size of California.
- The draconian California lockdowns, as with those in most of the world, have not worked. We again quote Governor Cuomo who said back in May it’s “shocking” most new virus hospitalizations are people who had been staying home. Yet, despite this hard fact, more people are being forced to stay home.
- Nearly 42 percent of the virus deaths in California are, according to the California Department of Health, those aged 80 years or older and, in total, 83 percent of all virus victims were 60 years or older. Yet, despite these facts, the entire state, which is the world’s fifth-largest economy, has been locked down, destroying the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions.
