Gavin Newsom is Lying About Coronavirus Stats

 

CA Watch List

California Governor Gavin Newsom added San Diego to his growing watchlist of counties that are required to clawback their re-openings due to increasing cases of COVID-19.  As of Tuesday, all bars, indoor dining establishments and entertainment areas like museums have closed as per Newsom’s directive. It was a brazenly obtuse move, a giant slap in the face to already struggling business owners who have really been doing their part to keep their places safe, clean and in compliance with the torrent of new, pandemic era regulations.

It’s also not following science.

First, keep in mind that COVID deaths as a percentage of California’s population is .0164325%. For San Diego it’s .00003076%

And yes new infections are up, somewhat dramatically so, as people have become more active and we are testing at enormous rates.  The good news is it’s mostly those in their 20s and 30’s whose COVID death rate is in the 0% range and who usually only experience mild to moderate flu like symptoms, if any.  Obviously there are tragic outliers but they are not the norm.

Even with older folks up to age 70, if you don’t suffer from a pre-existing condition that makes you more vulnerable to COVID, your chances of dying from it are small, akin to that of dying in a car accident.  As renown scientist Dr. John Ioannidis states in this article,

The death rate in a given country depends a lot on the age-structure, who are the people infected, and how they are managed,” Ioannidis said. “For people younger than 45, the infection fatality rate is almost 0%. For 45 to 70, it is probably about 0.05-0.3%. For those above 70, it escalates substantially.”

The even better news is death numbers and ICU admissions, while on a recent upswing, as a whole have remained mostly flat. In fact in San Diego where we have 8,0000 hospital beds, there are only 162 COVID related hospitalizations and medical facilities throughout California are only at 8% capacity.  There are upticks, which I’ll get in to further down, but they have nothing to do with people enjoying a meal out with friends.

So what gives? Why is Gavin Newsom purposefully harming business owners and shaming constituents who are enjoying life again, while fear mongering over California’s rising new infections?

Part of this I believe is that he is desperate to distract attention from the COVID  nursing home slaughter that’s happening across the state and which his own reckless actions of PAYING NURSING HOMES TO ACCEPT COVID POSITIVE PATIENTS have contributed to.

As of this writing there have been 6,573 COVID deaths in California out of a population of 41 million people.  78% percent of those deaths were in people 65 and older and ALMOST HALF were in nursing homes and long term care facilities.

In San Diego the numbers are similar where almost half our 406 COVID deaths have occurred in long term care care facilities with little support from the government SDDeaths.  Asks Patricia McGinnis, founder of California’s Advocates for Nursing Home Reform, “We have all these so called elected leaders. Where the hell are they?” 

If you’re Governor Newsom, you’re busy hiding from your criminally insane COVID payment incentive. That the Governor introduced this program well after the COVID risks for this population were well known is unfathomable, that he continues it while shaming others over going to bars and restaurants is downright repugnant.

Another taboo topic is Mexico, which Newsom will not touch, because that would mean having to explain why San Diego’s numbers are being wildly skewed by thousands of sick people coming over the border from Mexico.

“It’s an unprecedented surge across the border,” says Carmela Coyle, president and CEO of the California Hospital Association.  People are literally calling 911 once they reach the U.S. border and then taken to San Diego and Imperial County hospitals.

SD Cases by Zip

SD County Coronavirus Cases 6/12

Really I can’t say I blame those coming here for treatment BUT, this doesn’t excuse the refusal from Governor Newsom to acknowledge this being the driving factor behind our surging numbers. And other counties too, as border city patients are being airlifted all across the state.

So in a nutshell, Governor Newsom is silent on COVID nursing home deaths and his role in this, downplaying the low COVID risks for healthy people, pushing a non-existent hospital capacity problem and ignoring border caseload stats to push a panic driven narrative that tightens the screws on his already unprecedented assault on civil liberties.

Oh, he’s also threatened to withhold up to 2.5 billion dollars in funding from counties who don’t abide his closure orders. and he’s deploying Orwellian themed Strike Teams to enforce his directives.

Again, the question is why?

Is it to make California’s economy so bad it necessitates a federal bailout that will delay the state’s pending bankrupt pension fund implosion until after he leaves office?  Or to keep people in such a pandemic frenzy that a mandatory and easily gamed mail in voting for the November election becomes reality?

Or is it simply that Gavin Newsom is like any other petty, wanna be dictator out there who craves power, enjoys controlling people and demands respect by the threat of law?

What an all around abysmal failure of leadership from Gavin Newsom.  California deserves better.

  2. Amen! Well said, Tricia. Me too, a few states away, but same story. What is being done to us is downright criminal and immoral, it is causing far reaching psychological damage, destroying the economy, and it is actually bad for our health. People are being harmed by these draconian measures that do nothing to protect us. This is not okay.

    I spent some time the other day researching hospital capacity and ICU beds in several states because the media keeps reporting nonsense. I know for a fact that in my neck of the woods, our alleged “bed shortage,” is simply due to not having any personnel because we had to lay them all off because we didn’t have any patients! When we canceled all non essential medical and did not get the influx of covid 19 patients we expected, we had to eventually lay people off. On paper this looks like a reduction in available ICU beds and in a way it is, but not because those beds are full of patients! Numerous hospitals across the country have tried to make statements about this very thing, but if it’s reported at all, it’s buried on the bottom of page 18. All we really get to see is the headline, “ICU runs out of beds!” It is a total lie.

      Thanks IB. And nonsense is exactly what the media is reporting! I don’t know if they’re too dumb to dig deeper in to the numbers or are working off directives from upper management to keep the doom and gloom dial on high, but it’s atrocious.

      I really don’t know what to make of all of this. We’ve completely turned life upside down to fight a virus that for most people has a very low death rate. I get the seriousness of it spreading to vulnerable populations and the fact that there are still many unknowns about it, but this safe at all costs response is wildly out of sync with the stats. And you’re also right that the damages will be far reaching and last for some time.

      I’m not a conspiracy theory type gal, but you have to wonder why is this all happening?

  3. Wow! Well said. This is nuts but is paralleled all over the country.

    I think the issue is as you ask; “it simply that Gavin Newsom is like any other petty, wanna be dictator out there who craves power, enjoys controlling people and demands respect by the threat of law”.

    All planned and completely orchestrated. Like all Bigoted Retarded KKK Democrats, he is just following his orders for kill as many people as possible.

    But at least his winery was deemed an essential business.

    So what tribe is he from?

      I was at a farmers market this morning, and I requested a safe space away 6 ft away from all bacteria infectious oxygen deprived mask wearers, and I was discriminated against in a very intolerant bigoted way.

      They revised to accommodate my needs and frankly a bacteria infested mask wearer kept rudely coming towards me when I told him to stay away. He obviously was retarded due to oxygen deprivation as his mask covered his whole face.

      Masks deprive people of oxygen is common sense, but since they had no common sense, they wanted to see someone else’s lies telling them a different story.

      People are sheep!

      Common sense is not so common!

      I deserve a safe space, as my feelings are so hurt!

    @Tricia

    California deserves better? God knows what we deserve, but we are getting what we voted for.

    The way Democrat governors pressed nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients is beginning to less like incompetence and more like a sadistic plan to increase the number of deaths. Were they all that stupid?

    This is turning out to be most strange and malign effort to win a election.

      Very true Tom. I mean I certainly didn’t vote for him but the majority of Californians did. I’m certain he will run for President too. And yes the absolute incompetence when it comes to nursing homes is mind boggling.

      Everything about covid 19 has just been so bizarre as with every other major cultural issue. They are all tied in together with politics, social media and agendas and I just can’t wrap my head around yet of who, what and why.. Things are just getting started I fear.
