Mayor de Blasio to fine people who refuse to wear masks

From The Guardian: New York City will impose fines on people who refuse to wear a face covering in public, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Tuesday, as he announced that the rate of positive tests for the coronavirus had climbed above 3% in the city for the first time in months.

The latest citywide daily positive test rate was 3.25%, De Blasio said, a rise attributed in part to nine zip codes city health officials say have seen worrying increases in cases. In some hotspots the positivity rate was 17%.

De Blasio said officials would first offer free masks to anyone caught not wearing one. If the person refuses, the mayor told reporters, they will face an unspecified fine. “Our goal, of course, is to give everyone a free face mask,” the mayor said. “We don’t want to fine people, but if we have to we will.”

In the first surge of the pandemic, in March and April, New York became not just the US hotspot but the world leader for coronavirus cases. City and state officials are anxious not to see the progress of recent months go to waste.

More than 7 million people have been infected in the US and more than 200,000 have died. According to Johns Hopkins University, New York state has recorded more than 450,000 cases and more than 25,000 deaths.

The new rule on masks extends across the city and echoes a policy imposed this month by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which is controlled by the New York governor, Andrew Cuomo.

Under that policy, commuters who refuse to wear a mask on public transit such as buses, trains and the subway system face a $50 fine.

On Tuesday, De Blasio said the seven-day rolling Covid-19 positivity average remained at 1.38%, though he added that this week the citywide average had risen to 3%.

“For the first time in months, you’re going to see a daily number over 3%,” De Blasio said. “Obviously, everyone is concerned about that. That is something we all have to work on together to address and something that says to us we have to be on high alert to make sure we fight back this challenge.”

But of course: Music stars from Wuhan virus-infected states get pass on NYC quarantine rules for VMAs

From NY Post: When music’s biggest stars descend on New York for the Video Music Awards this week, NYPD cops will show up to check out the shows.

But they won’t be judging the talent. Officers in the NYPD’s TV/Movie unit will see if the performers and their entourages are wearing masks and staying socially distant, city officials told The Post.

Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and many others are set to perform at various outdoor locations “with limited or no audience” on Sunday, Aug. 30. The show’s original location at Barclays Arena was dropped due to COVID-19 concerns.

“The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and Citywide Events is working in close coordination with the production to ensure guidelines are being followed,” a City Hall spokesperson said, adding that the NYPD unit will be doing “compliance checks during the production.”

But unlike other travelers, the VMA musicians, singers and dancers won’t have to follow a state rule to quarantine for 14 days if they come to New York from any of 34 states, including California and Florida, with average COVID infection rates exceeding 10 percent.

Under an executive order by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, anyone who violates the quarantine order is subject to a fine up to $10,000 or up to 15 days in jail.

But the state Department of Health has granted the VMAs a semi-exemption to the quarantine rule.

They can “participate in the production of the show,” a spokeswoman for Cuomo said, “but they will only interact with other members of the cast and crew and will quarantine when not working.”

Does U.S. have a COVID-19 coronavirus exit strategy?

U.S. death toll doubles in 2 days! (Daily Mail)

COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) deaths top 5,000 in U.S. as more states issue stay-at-home orders! (Fox News)

The United States now leads the world in number of confirmed COVID-19 cases! — that’s assuming, of course, that China’s numbers can be believed, which we have every reason not to, given the Chinese Communist Party’s tight control and suppression over all means of communication. See “Shipment of funeral urns in Wuhan raise questions about China’s coronavirus reporting

Jobless claims soar to record 3.3 million as layoffs jump!

The great American jobs machine grinds to a halt!

Newly jobless Americans worry about making ends meet!

Auto suppliers fear financial ruin as GM, Ford and FCA grind to a halt!

World trade hit by virus sees worst collapse in a generation!

So scream the headlines . . . .

Given the devastation the Wuhan virus has already wrought on the U.S. economy, more and more people are asking:

When will this end?

How do you choose between the economy and more viral death? (MSN)

When will the stay-at-home, social-distancing lockdown be lifted?

Does the Trump administration have an exit strategy?

According to some, the lockdown could continue indefinitely:

  • On March 22, 2020, New York governor Andrew Cuomo, with the pierced nipples and touted by the hate-America MSM as a last-minute replacement of Joe Biden as the Demonrat Party’s presidential nominee, declared that the Wuhan coronavirus is so contagious that 40% to 80% of the U.S. population could get the virus, and that the lockdown could last as long as 9 months. (Twitter)
  • On March 30, 2020, during the White House coronavirus taskforce briefing, CDC Director Dr. Anthony Fauci said he expects another coronavirus outbreak in the fall “because of the degree of transmissibility,” although he said that by then, the country will be better equipped to fight the illness because of better testing, treatments for the infected, and hopefully, the availability of a vaccine. (New York Post)
  • Two days later on April 1, Fauci said that the United States will not come out of lockdown until there are no “new cases” and no new deaths of coronavirus. In his words: “ if we get to the part of the curve…when it goes down to essentially no new cases, no new deaths at a period of time. I think it makes sense that you will have to relax social distancing.” (Summit News)

But then, there are other voices arguing for why the media’s fear-porn must stop and why the U.S. government should not continue to allow the coronavirus panic to wreck the economy. As examples:

  1. Contradicting his alarmist verbal statements about COVID-19, in an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Fauci writes that the Wuhan coronavirus may be no more lethal than the seasonal flu!
  2. UK government says COVID-19 is not a “high consequence” infectious disease (gov.UK)
  3. Stanford research director says we are “severely” overreacting to coronavirus based on “utterly unreliable” data (Daily Wire)
    • As an example, raising methodological questions about the testing, pathogenesis and transmission of the Wuhan coronavirus, a carefully written and reasoned article in GreenMedInfo asks if the virus even exists.
  4. Some drugs are shown to be successful against COVID-19:
    • Malaria drug hydroxychloroquine effective since 2005 (Breitbart)
    • Chloroquine 100% success rate with zinc (Gateway Pundit)
    • French peer-reviewed study of chloroquine 100% success rate (Daily Wire)
    • An international poll of thousands of doctors rated hydroxycholoroquine the “most effective therapy” for COVID-19. But the survey also found that only 23% of U.S. medical professionals had prescribed the drug — far less than other countries. (New York Post)
    • Australian study found a single dose of anti-parasitic drug Ivermectin kills COVID-19 in lab by removing all genetic material of the virus within 48 hours (news.com.au)
    • Massive doses of vitamin C to treat coronavirus patients (New York Post)
    • In fact, the FDA recently approved limited use of two anti-malarial drugs, chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, for COVID-19 (New York Post)

What the United States needs is a formula, or at least some indication, for when the lockdown could end so that Americans can get back to work. (Daily Wire)

The UK has one.

Business Insider reports on April 3, 2020, that the UK plans to issue coronavirus “immunity passports” so people can leave the lockdown early.

On April 2, 2020, in a Downing Street press conference, UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said citizens would need to test positive in a COVID-19 antibody test, showing they had already contracted the virus, before being issued “immunity passports” that would allow them to return to “normal life.” Hancock said: “We are looking at an immunity certificate. People who have had the disease have got the antibodies and then have immunity can show that and therefore get back as much as possible to normal life.”

The UK has already ordered millions of antibody tests.

What say you, President Trump? What is our exit strategy? Uncertainty about the future is adding to Americans’ anxiety.

Man who shot up NYPD Bronx station just got out of jail for machine gun charge

According to the NY Post, this perp just got out of jail for a machine gun charge, has a homicide on his record, arrest for gun possession, and ambushed two cops the previous night.

Yet Gov. Cuomo claims New York has the “toughest gun control laws in the US.”

Maybe he means toughest for law-abiding citizens…
