Localities Scramble To Curb Rising COVID-19 Rates Amid Vocal Opposition To Restrictions | MSNBC 1


With coronavirus case rates rising in a number of states, some local officials are trying to hold back the surge by pausing reopening or requiring mask use in public. But the Trump administration continues to ignore the numbers. And increasing hostility toward local governments trying to hold off that wave with restrictions ‘comes from the top,’ says public health expert Dr. Kavita Patel.» Subscribe to MSNBC:

      If Trump Thinks It’s Safe for His Followers to Gather at Protests, Why Doesn’t He Attend One?

      FROM A VERY safe distance on Friday, Donald Trump urged his supporters to risk infection with the deadly coronavirus by attending in-person protests to “liberate” Minnesota, Michigan, and Virginia from stay-at-home orders issued by their Democratic governors.

      @Twoofer Derper not yet, any impacts of that can be expected to be seen around Independence day. Cases now are the Memorial day & anti-lockdown protests, not the BLM protests yet

      The one railing against masks causing her to have to “breathe in CO2 when God gave me the ability to extract that from my body . . . ” was especially ludicrous. And then she was followed by the one asserting that being required to wear masks in public was tantamount to “kneeling on the necks of the people . . .”HELLO! The mask is to protect you from the saliva droplets of others who may be infected with the virus but are asymptomatic spreaders. Learn a lesson from the countries of western Asia whose people kept their curve DOWN, in part because their people complied with the requirement that they wear masks in public!

    Let them go. They say is their right. So it’s also the right of a boss, business owner to refuse people. They can’t complain. I would say if they want to die let them. I protect myself.

    • @One by Land, Two if by Sea Run if by Air Exactly. I don’t understand why these people don’t trust doctors who have invested 8 years or more on that education continually warn that wearing masks, washing hands and maintain safe distances will save lives as inconvenient it may seem. It will be a dose of reality when the states that have relaxed restrictions and moved to quickly will change course back to square one in a few weeks. These same women will blame the city council for not protecting them.

    • KT MadeinTas | June 13, 2020 at 10:22 PM | Reply

      I am Australian and if a person behaved like those women in Australia in the middle of the Pandemic they would have been arrested.
      We care for our elderly, our sick and our vulnerable and these women have a RESPONSIBILITY too. To prevent community transmission of a deadly virus to those vulnerable people in their community. They are young they would possibly be OK but others those with asthma, elderly, heart conditions wouldn’t be. This is wilful assault. Illegal in Australia.

    • No shoes, no shirt, no service. By adding “no mask” these individuals are now complaining? I wonder how they feel about reduced speed limits around schools?

    • penny sommers | June 14, 2020 at 8:55 AM | Reply

      KT MadeinTas What’s worse is they give these MORONS a public platform to spew their stupidity from, as though sharing their ignorance with the world would benefit anyone.

      @One by Land, Two if by Sea Run if by Air please stop kidding yourselves that masks are THAT effective! If they were, then why did you shut down at all instead of just wearing masks from the start? Wait a few weeks & you’re going to learn the hard way that masks don’t do what you think they do, when the mass cases from the BLM protests start rolling in. stay home if you’re sick!

  11. Sooo basically they are saying “you’re taking my freedom away to give other people a virus and not wear a mask.” Freaking idiots. Ugh.

    • KT MadeinTas | June 13, 2020 at 10:39 PM | Reply

      It is not their life for which they need to wear a mask. It is for those vulnerable people in their community, the elderly, those with asthma, heart disease etc. This is wilful assault. Illegal in Australia during a pandemic. This is why Australia 102
      NZ 21
      USA 117526
      Let them do the math

    • @Fancy Brooks I believe it protects both ways. My doctor has me wearing an n95 reusable medical mask if I have to go outside my house for any reason, and safety (anti-fog) glasses to protect my eye ducts. There’s more to this than the CDC or WHO is admitting to.

    • @UtubeProfit “that’s your right” is basically saying, you don’t give a crap if you give anyone the virus, because you don’t care if you live or die. That’s incredibly selfish.

    • Listen, I don’t like the masks either but I wear them because the nice old lady in front of me in the line doesn’t deserve to die

    • @Brian Hard yeah sadly

    • ​@Brian Hard Alas, poll tax is not allowed. The “elitist” that I am, I favor some sort of basic civics quiz that comes at the end of the ballot. If a voter can’t get more than half right, their vote doesn’t count, they don’t even have to know. If immigrants who wish to become naturalized citizens have to learn that stuff to earn the right to vote, everyone should have to have basic civics knowledge to keep that privilege. It’s getting to be tyranny of the misguided and misinformed masses. But there are already absurdly long lines for voting. I’m not making any realistic proposal here.

    • @x X I disagree, my postlady wears a mask and gloves. Most of the gas stations I use have barriers between the attendant and customer while displaying signs that require masks to enter, and some don t. I choose not to use the businesses that don t. I’m in the Brandon area.

    • @Just Say’n Orlando here and we people where them here but its about a 40% wear them range. Which makes one person coughing near imposible to have it affective. The post office near me doesnt even have there signs out suggesting masks or social distancing. They have them all turned sideways up on the front desk put not set out. I guess its my area

    • @Hector Morales you DO realize where she lives there is less covid in the entire country than in most medium sized cities in the USA, which is why they are now open. Where they have actually tested and traced people. And of course you must be a medical expert on epidemiology? Where things change rapidly? So what works today, might not be what works a week from now. What HAS been shown is that you have less risk of both contracting and passing covid when you where a mask. So whay info do you have from reputable sources that we are missing?

    • Hector Morales | June 14, 2020 at 6:28 PM | Reply

      @Kar I know that the test they are using to test for covid isn’t actually testing for covid at all. Look it up the Nobel Peace prize winner that invented this laboratory process said himself it cannot be used to test for any virus. Only supposed to confirm certain enzymes that are present during stages of cancer.

      I don’t know, a lot of people that scientists predicted would need ventilators didn’t need them. There were supposed to be shortages of ventilators and hospitals were supposed to be overloaded, requiring those massive medical boats that could house 10,000+ patients, but the most those ever reached was 273.

      Chances are, these people will be Asymptomatic if they do contract it. Not much of a reason to fret
