The news media (and clueless government officials) don’t understand why people won’t listen to them regarding Covid. Maybe it’s because they outright lie and go overboard on scare tactics every time one of them opens their collective mouths.
Case in point: News today Nov 30, 2020 from ABC7
‘LA County, the nation’s most populous, will impose a lockdown calling for its 10 million residents to stay home “as much as possible,” prohibiting them from gathering with people outside of their household for public or private occasions beginning Monday, except for faith-based services and protests.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has estimated that the county’s COVID-19 death toll could reach over 11,500 by the end of the year – meaning that more than 4,000 residents could die in just the next five weeks, the Los Angeles Times reported. A record number of people in the county were infected last week.’
At first glance sounds bad, huh? Simple math destroys the bull horn scare warning.
That’s 11,500 SINCE THE VIRUS APPEARED – nearly a year.
The death rate (and it hasn’t even happened yet) of 11,500 represents .115% of the population of 10 million.
Please note that is POINT 115% – one tenth of one percent.
On a typical average year approximately 60,000 deaths occur in Los Angeles County every year.

That is SIX times the deaths from Covid, yet we are supposed to suspend our lives and hide in our homes.
And they wonder why no one is paying them any attention?
And then we have our ‘new’ government:
Biden COVID-19 adviser Dr. Celine Gounder: Many who celebrated Thanksgiving with family or friends will be in ICUs over Christmas
What a vile and disgusting statement.
And these are the people us fools elect.
