(Big League Politics) – Public health “experts” are baffled as COVID-19 cases spike in Democrat-run states that have instituted lockdown policies while Republican-led states that are removing restrictions are experiencing a drop in cases.
NBC News released a propaganda piece to give these public health experts, whose proclamations of doom have put much of the public into a fear trance, a chance to save face. It did not go particularly well.
“When you don’t test, you’re blind. And when you’re not testing, you have a false sense of what the real problem is in your community,” said Dr. Aileen Marty, who is a researcher of infectious diseases at Florida International University.
These experts are making excuses for the increasing COVID-19 case numbers in Michigan where Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been widely praised by media figures and scientists for her Draconian approach in keeping Michigan locked down as surrounding states were opening up.
“What’s different in this wave is that these are younger individuals between the ages of 30 and 60, the vast majority of which are not currently vaccinated,” said Dr. Vineet Chopra, Chief of Hospital Medicine at Michigan Medicine, setting the stage for Whitmer’s failed policy to be used as an excuse to push for vaccines.
They are spinning reasons as to why southern states, such as Texas, are recording lower numbers despite holding mass public gatherings.
“A lot of individuals in the southern part of the US, and especially here in Texas, have already been exposed to the coronavirus so many individuals already have coronavirus antibodies,” said Dr. Neil Gandhi, Regional Medical Director at Houston Methodist Hospital.
The so-called experts are blaming young people who have decided to live their lives on the spread of COVID-19 instead of the Democrats’ policy failures.
“Those are the least likely to show up for testing, and when those younger individuals infect older individuals or more vulnerable individuals, that takes time,” Marty said.
“We worry about if there is a perfect storm brewing. If we remember, this virus always takes 10 to 14 to 21 days to develop and we might just be seeing the early effects of that right now,” Gandhi said.

There will almost certainly be a rush to exaggerate new cases in Texas, Florida, Arkansas and other states in order to keep the mass hysteria going, but the propaganda spewed from these bought-and-paid-for “experts” has never seemed more ridiculous than it does right now.
