Maybe New york got it Right on Corona Virus?

Presidential Candidate Andrew Cuomo Gov. NY (D)

It seems I’m having to change my mind more often these days…
I recently hit play on Dr. Fauci’s COVID-19 segment on PBS where he says the New York Response was the correct one.
Looking at the current stats that appears to be true!
After reviewing my previous critique of Governor Cuomo and the state’s reaction to the global pandemic I feel I have to retract my strongly voiced criticism. It looks like the Governor’s approach of Early, Often and Up Front has left him the darling of the Democrats.

Gov. Cuomo’s strategy was two-fold. First, He demanded the filthy, disease-riddled, urine-soaked New York Subway system remain open specifically because those who would be in First and Direct contact with those elderly individuals possessing pre-existing conditions could get to work unobstructed. Second, by Forcing New York Nursing Homes to admit COVID-19 Positive elderly into their facilities. By doing both, the Governor was able to literally decimate the most vulnerable and likely to die from the virus…
This plan resulted in well over 30,000 lives lost almost immediately.
Early, Often and Up Front.
Once the most likely to contract and pass away from the disease had done so, the Subway was sanitized (for the first time in 100 years) and the order forcing nursing homes to admit infected elderly into their midst was rescinded.
But there is the genius.
The highest risk population most likely to contract and subsequently pass away from the disease had been dramatically reduced leaving far fewer remaining to perish from it today. Now the numbers look promising… so much so that the Governor is receiving praise from Dr. Fauci. (Is Fauci a German name? I’ll have to look into that.)
If one must judge from current lead stories emanating out of New York and landing on headlines across the country you can only end up where I am now. New York got it Right on the Corona Virus thanks to the leadership of Andrew Cuomo.


Don’t Quarantine Me Bro!

A Medical Worker has been released from observation prior to the recognized Ebola incubation period after returning from West Africa.

Ms. Hickcox came back from West Africa and was quarantined for 7 days. During that period of time she secured a Lawyer.

The incubation period (as far as we can tell) for Ebola is currently at 21 days.

Ms. Hickcox has been released from the quarantine and ask politely to quarantine herself voluntarily at Home in Maine.

The White House believes this is the correct way to proceed.
The CDC, read White House, believes this is the correct way to proceed.

While Ms. Hickcox has said openly that she may, or may not, have Ebola… her treatment is uncalled for.

Clearly Nurse Hickcox believes the idea of quarantine for a disease that does not present for 21 days is inhumane… as she has stated.

And, She along with her lawyers promise to sue.

I would be lying if I said I was surprised…

However, isn’t her admission that she ‘may or may not’ have the disease exactly the reason for the quarantine?

I will ask all of you…

Is the inconvenience of an extra 14 days too much to ask if it saves the life of a single child?

Is the expectation that we treat rapidly fatal diseases for which we have no cure with extreme caution unreasonable if it could save the lives of our children?

Wouldn’t you expect Medical Personnel to ‘Do No Harm’ and err on the side of such caution?

And finally…

Wouldn’t you expect the White House to agree with such wisdom until we can get a better handle on a rapidly fatal disease… if not for us, for the children?

We have all heard this appeal for decades.  It has been used ad nauseam.

And yet, where are the hand wringing, bleeding heart, Liberal Leftists with their concern?

Are they too occupied with the latest, fresh from Latin America, killer of children called the Enterovirus D68?  Nope… not there either.

Is the Press voicing their concerns for the children?  Nope.

How about our President and his party who care about everything more than we do?  Nope.

So I guess “Equal Opportunity” now only applies to Deadly Communicable Diseases.

If not in America, then Where can a Killer Microbe get a Fair Shake?
