Governor Orders Beaches and Restaurants Closed, Keeps His Winery Open for Tastings on 4th of July
As the number of cases of coronavirus continues to increase in most states, people are starting to freak out and panic once again and crawl back inside their shell.
Some people are not. I happen to be one of them and the main reason is because there are a few things that I understand.
The first thing is that there is more availability for testing, when you have more testing, you’re going to naturally have more positive cases.
The second thing is that while the total number of cases have gone up, the number of deaths continue to decline. This is the biggest reason why I can’t understand why everyone is panicking.
The third thing is that it’s not as though the virus is spreading, it’s just that more testing is being done. These people already had the virus and what we’re seeing now is much more mild symptoms that resemble a cold that lasts a few days.
Nonetheless, some states are closing back up. Take California for example, Governor Gavin Newsome is ordering bars, restaurants, wineries, theaters, zoos, and game rooms closed once again.
“I cannot say it enough; I said it last week, I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again. We’ve got Fourth of July weekend coming up. One of the areas of biggest concern relates to the spread of COVID-19 in this state remains family gatherings. Not just bars. Not just being out in the streets where people are protesting and the like. It’s specifically family gatherings. Where family members or rather households — immediate and extended family members — begin to mix and take down their guard. They may walk into that barbecue with masks on; then they put the cooler down and the mask comes off, they have a glass of water, and all of a sudden nieces and nephews start congregating.”
But I guess he’s above his own orders because he is keeping his own winery open.
Newsom is keeping HIS wineries open over the weekend & they don’t serve food. Hypocrite! pic.twitter.com/U7VlkZVkeB
