More Chicago restaurants to close as mayor keeps city under Wuhan virus restrictions

The city of Chiraq has a population of almost 2.7 million. And because the Wuhan virus has been so deadly there it is an election year, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has kept the city – and its businesses – under severe lockdowns.

The Wuhan virus dashboard from the City of Chicago’s Health Department (9/22/20):

First thing I noticed about the dashboard is they make it very hard to locate active positive cases. The front page (above) lists cumulative (3/1 through 9/22/20) tests and cases (77,675). In order to find current active cases, you have to click on Latest Data, Daily Status Report. Here data is broken down by age, gender and ethnicity.

Yet that “report” AGAIN shows total cumulative cases (77,657). Total deaths: 2,935.

I finally found a table, “Daily Chicago COVID-19 Cases, Deaths, and Hospitalizations.”

That table shows less than 600 active cases per day since 5/28/20. For four months .023 percent of Chiraq’s population has had active cases of Wuhan virus. Not serious numbers by any means, especially to warrant business restrictions.

So why is the mayor still hindering businesses?

MyFoxChicago reports that the 25-percent indoor capacity limit currently imposed by the city is ruining the restaurant industry in Chicago.

Restaurant owners are imploring the city to expand indoor eating capacity yet the city insists the coronavirus numbers are “just not right yet.”

Read that whole story here.

I’m guessing the numbers probably won’t be “just right” until November 4, 2020.

Lori Lightfoot should have a place like Andrew Cuomo has.

Bravo! True statement, which makes us wonder–why nothing is done about the black on black gun violence in their city?

The purpose of the lock downs is to put businesses, mainly small businesses, out of business in preparation for implementing U.N. Agenda 21, which will create worldwide technocratic totalitarianism. It will be a cross between Brave New World and 1984. With everthing going out of business, the a tiny global elite will buy up everything at fire sale prices and own everything. The Fed is buying trillions of dollars of corporate debt right now in order to create this extreme centralization of ownership. Freedom and autonomy will be things of the past. You literally will not be allowed to continue… Read more »

I cannot help but believe that this heavy handedness is all about promoting the voters to take their anger out on Trump in the coming election. No doubt about it, the people of Chicago need to dump this goofball come the next election.

They can’t wait that long, I believe. 2022? How many more dead will there be before then? How many more businesses will close their doors, jobs will be lost, rich people move out, and foreclosures?

The really SAD thing about all this is that about half of the small businesses in America have been devastated because of a LIE. (The lie being that the COVID 19 gomboo was SO MUCH WORSE than any of the Flu epidemics we’ve managed to survive without the help of China-sponsored “experts”.)
