Mask Burning Over Cuomo’s Crackdown on Size of Religious Gatherings
Protesters burn masks in Brooklyn coronavirus hotspot over Cuomo's crackdown on religious gatherings https://t.co/ShlUQTEgCo— CBS News (@CBSNews) October 7, 2020
Health Editor’s Note: Cuomo ordered return to lockdown in nine New York City neighborhoods due to localized spikes in COVID-19 cases. Yes, lockdowns in only the neighborhoods which had increases in COVID-19 cases. An additional 12 zones were placed under slightly less restrictions.
The lockdown does not mean you are locked into your house and can never leave. Restaurants will still have carry out food, only nonessential businesses will be closed, gatherings at churches should only be of ten people, banning of mass gatherings (closing of schools)…I repeat, none of these measures mean you will have to be locked in your home and are only meant to keep you from being in crowded situations where the coronavirus is easily spread from human to human. This makes total sense if one does not want to contract coronavirus.
A large Jewish population lives within the nine neigborhoods that were placed under lockdown. There is a reason for the increased cases which would be occurring due to lack of physical distancing, large gatherings, lack of mask wearing, etc.
Always, always there is some way to try to place a clearly medical situation into the realm of politics and assaults on civil rights. Heshy Tischler who lives in the lockdown area announced there would be “peaceful protests’ every day, but then called those protesters his soldiers and pronounced they were at war. A war against a process that is trying to stop the spread of coronavirus and potentially save lives? How can you declare war when someone is trying to save you?…..Carol
