For third day in a week, L.A. County reports more than 2,000 new coronavirus cases

Quote
Los Angeles County health officials reported 2,571 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, the third day in the last week that the county has reported more than 2,000 infections.
...
It’s “highly likely” that the surge is connected to mass protests that erupted in recent weeks over the death of George Floyd, L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said.
...
Ferrer said restaurant settings and parties may also be linked to several clusters of infections in recent weeks, despite the county’s ongoing prohibition of gatherings beyond religious services and political protests. Newly reopened workplaces where people are in close contact may also be a factor.

The new infections are all but certainly from a variety of sources. The protests are likely to be a significant source, but if contact-tracing is done, will the tracers be allowed to ask whether infected people participated in protests?

L.A. County Faces Coronavirus Surge After Black Lives Matter Protests

Los Angeles County may run out of hospital beds in the next two to three weeks because of a new surge in coronavirus infections dating to the period in which Black Lives Matter protests broke out.

Last week, L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said that it was “highly likely” that a new spike in cases was partly related to the protests and riots, in which tens of thousands of people filled crowded streets.

Earlier this month, there were also massive crowds in Los Angeles and other major cities for LGBTQ Pride rallies that doubled as Black Lives Matter (or “Black Trans Lives Matter”) protests. Attendance at L.A.’s parade in West Hollywood June 14 was estimated at 30,000.

Well, Mayor, start arresting some of them for disregarding the law and not wearing masks.

Oh, I forgot, this is your exceptions to the law.

Well that's just the thing. In typical Democrat reality denial, the current surge of cases was certainly caused by the rioters (riots are essential so, no mask required) and yet the Democrats are rushing to punished all of us, the rest of society, for their negligent behavior. It wasn't the riots that caused 100,000 new cases. It was that guy in Costco who didn't have a mask. It's the couple snuggling in the park without masks. It's their fault. They created this mess.

But it is definitely not the fault of the Democrat's Communist Stormtroopers (Antifa/BLM). They are innocent, always.

We ate ouy on Fathers Day for te first time in the lockdown era. 

Combine more general relaxation of practices, demonstrations, gym's and other facilities back open, and new infections are to be expected aren't they?

And aren't infections the price towards "Herd immunity?

I continue posing the question:

"Do you know anybody that got sick? was hospitalized? recovered? Died?

The FIL of a long-time friend (homeschooling and church) "died of" Covid-19. Basically he had existing health problems and Covid-19 (confirmed by test) caused his death that might otherwise not have happened for months or years.

An immediate family member's manager (I'm being vague intentionally) got sick with appropriate symptoms after a trip to a country that had been having an outbreak. The manager's symptoms never got so severe that the manager got tested.

A couple of friends have had scares but were negative when tested. I was tested and found negative as prep for a recent surgery. I'd guess my experience is pretty typical for a city-dweller (outside of the greater NYC area) who doesn't work in a medical field.

What bugs me wrt LA County is that the health officials are shutting some things down - e.g. beaches - with no apparent evidence that those locations had anything to do with the current surge. IOW, why shut down beaches - probably one of the less risky environments, being outdoors, spacious, breezy, and sunny - when the majority of outbreak locations might be bars or churches or large family gatherings or the protests? You know ... follow science rather than lashing out blindly!

The shutdown is not about Covid and it is not about health. It is all about disruption of normal daily life, and it is about raw power. Riots are essential, but churches are not. Riots are essential, but beaches are not. Riots are essential, but remote hiking trails are not. No logic. No rational. Just disruption for its own sake.

Disruption is right.

Remember when Obama during the federal shutdown decided to inflict maximum pain by shutting down national parks as it was expensive to operate and could not be afforded?

It is the way libs do it.
