If only this motherfucker had the same tenacious attitude toward illegal aliens.
UPDATE May 8, 3:43 p.m.: Following our story, Ventura County Public Health Director Dr. Robert Levin attempted to mollify critics and concerned citizens by apologizing and promising not to forcibly quarantine people with COVID-19. This should come as a relief to Ventura County residents and other Californians. It’s another case of journalism getting results.
We, of course, stand by our story considering it was based entirely on the public statements of California officials.
As I reported at PJMedia, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday he was raising up an “army” of contact tracers – as many as 20,000 people – to track down everyone with COVID-19 and quarantine them.
The number of deaths has begun going down in the state, but Newsom has only doubled down, announcing Monday he was training as many as 20,000 people – “an army and a workforce” – to begin tracking down COVID-19 cases.
Newsom announced that the “army” – his word – will start with a deployment of 3,000 and grow to the 20,000 mark to chase down who, what, where, and with whom COVID positive people have had connections. To what end? Newsom said, “the tracing component requires workforce and to identify individuals who tested positive…to ID their contacts (with privacy) and maybe quarantine individuals to stop the spread of the disease.”
He means forcible quarantine.
On Wednesday, the soft voice of Ventura County Health Director Robert Levin confirmed that the forcible quarantines are underway. He announced a “pilot program that will grow into a larger program” and “we will find everyone with COVID-19 and we will isolate every one of them and we will make sure that they stay quarantined and we will check in with them every day.
……Why is it that we’re freeing prisoners and locking up innocents?
