The kind looking man with the gentle voice in the video is Dr. Robert Levin, Health Director for Ventura County, CA. In it, the doctor explains the new “Test & Trace” program being implemented across the state and how it will work in Ventura County.
Here are some snippets from the kind looking man with the gentle voice and the time mark where you can find them in the video:
3:49- “When we find someone who has a COVID infection, those people are immediately isolated.”
4:52- “We will isolate every one of them and we will find every one of their contacts and we will make sure that they stay quarantined.”
5:20-“There are gonna be thousands of peopled hired who will be contact investigators across the state.”
6:12-“We’re not going to be able to keep that person in their home”
6:25-“We’ll be moving people like this in to other kinds of housing.”
Doesn’t this all sound just wonderful? Especially from such a kind looking man with the most gentle of voices.
Of course after an uproar on social media Ventura County was forced to apologize and denied people would be forcibly removed from their homes. The good doctor himself said, “I either misspoke or it was misinterpreted – I’ll take the blame of having misspoke.” His full statement can be found here.
Just about everything he said in the video points to forcibly isolating people from others and we’re expected to believe he misspoke? Does it even matter at this point?
Thousands of new government hires will be making the determination whether or not you need to be isolated because somebody, somewhere tested positive for COVID-19 and said they may have come in contact with you. What happens if you say no?
It’s not just California either as I’m sure you know. States all around the country are hiring tens of thousands of people for contact tracing programs of their own.
What could possibly go wrong?
