Whitler is a PIG....

No cases of coronavirus have been traced back to protests in Michigan, state officials said Friday, one day after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II took part in a “peaceful unity march" through Highland Park and Detroit.

Some Michiganders who observed photos and video from the event have noted that the governor, who has consistently called for residents to wear masks and keep 6 feet apart to reduce the spread of COVID-19, did not observe that during the march.

On Friday, June 5, Whitmer was asked about the march and if health officials have concerns that the recent protests will lead to an increase in the state’s cases of coronavirus.

She noted that participants “couldn’t always observe 6 feet” of separation given the spacing of the march. But she said "we wore masks the whole time, we had ample use of hand sanitizer, we never shook hands, we didn’t high-five or hug the way that we usually would greet one another.

“I felt it was an important moment to show my support and show a unified leadership out of the executive office of the governor and so the lieutenant governor and I joined," Whitmer said.

Frau Whitler, pandering as usual.

She'd look better with a burqua instead, so nobody has to see her ugly mug.

Over 1,000 health professionals sign a letter saying, Don't shut down protests using coronavirus concerns as an excuse

A group of health and medical colleagues has penned an open letter to express their concern that protests around the United States could be shut down under the guise of coronavirus health concerns.

The letter -- which went on to draw more than 1,200 signatures -- focuses on techniques to reduce harm to people protesting racial injustice.

"We created the letter in response to emerging narratives that seemed to malign demonstrations as risky for the public health because of Covid-19," according to the letter writers, many of whom are part of the University of Washington's Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
"Instead, we wanted to present a narrative that prioritizes opposition to racism as vital to the public health, including the epidemic response. We believe that the way forward is not to suppress protests in the name of public health but to respond to protesters demands in the name of public health, thereby addressing multiple public health crises."

The letter focuses on health guidance for protestors and law enforcement, such as wearing masks, advocating to not hold people who are arrested in close proximity and opposing the use of tear gas for health reasons.

"Staying at home, social distancing, and public masking are effective at minimizing the spread of COVID-19. To the extent possible, we support the application of these public health best practices during demonstrations that call attention to the pervasive lethal force of white supremacy," the letter says.
"However, as public health advocates, we do not condemn these gatherings as risky for COVID-19 transmission. We support them as vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of Black people in the United States. We can show that support by facilitating safest protesting practices without detracting from demonstrators' ability to gather and demand change. This should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-home orders."

Why do I suddenly have an image in my head of Eric Cartman from South Park all tarted up as a problem child to do the Maury Show and yelling, ' I can do what I wahnt!'?

Doesn’t it take up to 14 days and for the patient to answer honestly about their activities?

Actually symptoms average 5 days from exposure. Not 14 like those idiots claimed at the onset. Additionally, you can pass the virus to others 2 days before onset to about at the max 11 days after onset. After that your not passing the virus apparently the body becomes a wasteland.
