Because that’s what politicians do. NYC teachers say de Blasio, Carranza helped spread coronavirus.
Travel from China was supposed to be halted before NYC schools had their break. But the rules don’t apply to EVERYONE!
At the Grand Street campus in Williamsburg, which houses three high schools, a teacher returned from a trip to China over the February break. Despite reports of the outbreak, the teacher did not self-quarantine, but returned to teach kids in all three schools Feb. 26 through Feb. 29, a staffer said.
The teacher then became sick and stopped working. The school was not closed, and employees were not notified, insiders said.
There were outbreaks in Brooklyn schools, but the NYC powers-that-be kept everyone in the dark, issuing DIRECTIVES to not tell anyone, including public health.
One infected teacher was so torn by the secrecy he took it upon himself to personally let all his students know his condition.
So sick teachers infected students, and staff, who then took it home to their families. Is it any wonder that New York is now the epicenter of COVID-19 in the US? As I write this, New York (I only have data at the state level) has about half of the confirmed COVID-19 cases in the US, at 15,777 with 114 dead. I’m sure this is Trump’s fault, at least according to the media.
Hat tip to The Other McCain, who notes.
Why would a teacher travel to China at a time when this dangerous virus outbreak was going on there? I mean, Trump shut off incoming flights from China on Feb. 3, and yet this Brooklyn teacher went to China nearly three weeks later, and taught for four days before falling ill? And then — to add insult to injury — the city’s department of education suppressed the information about this COVID-19 case? This is criminal negligence. Hell, it’s nearly manslaughter!
People in the Democrat-controlled fiefdom of New York City — the voters who elected this dishonest scumbag De Blasio, and who send vile subhuman monsters like Chuck Schumer to Congress — think they’re smarter than all the ordinary folks in “flyover country” who vote Republican.
