De Blasio: Don’t Ask Positive Cases If They Were At BLM Protests

The task force responsible for coronavirus contact-tracing has been told not to ask positive cases if they’ve attended Black Lives Matter demonstrations, according to a city spokesman.

“No person will be asked proactively if they attended a protest,” Avery Cohen, a spokesperson for de Blasio, told THE CITY about the directive. “If a person wants to proactively offer that information, there is an opportunity for them to do so.”

The whole point of contact tracing is to find out where the positive cases have been so that they can identify who else may be infected and where the transmissions may be coming from.

It looks like they're not that interested in tracing it back to certain points of possible exposure. Technically they are supposed to ask for any close contacts that a positive case may have made, within 6 feet of anyone for 10 minutes or more.

Why would you not be interested in just one particular possible source?

The answer, once again, must be "politics".

“Let’s be clear about something: if there is a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don’t blame the protesters. Blame racism,” Mark Levine, head of the city council’s health committee, tweeted earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Be Blasio is still threatening legal consequences from the state of New York for some business owners who reopen their businesses and churchgoers who attend services.

This certainly gives the appearance of political targeting and it's leaving a lot of folks scratching their heads.

  1. This buffoon is such an ass clown. Dipshits in NYC deserve everything they get because of this fool…and nobody to blame but themselves, until these dumb niggers burn the city down, then it will be (white) conservative’s fault!!

  2. If I was a protestor at one of these events, which support, I would not be afraid to say I was at this event. As the whole point of being there was to be heard. And if it used against me than I would demand legal protection

  3. These idiots need to be removed from office. They have been told to social distance and if anyone gets it, it’s their fault, not racism, but protesting because that’s not social distancing. Don’t come crying around that you don’t have supplies, or blame anyone else but yourselves. Also you are a hypocrite, liar, wolf in sheep’s clothing, and disgusting. You need to resign.

  4. Contacts are contacts, wherever the exposure. Political interference like this reduces the effectiveness of contact tracing and makes evaluation of the trajectory of the spread of the virus less accurate and the results less useful.
    It also destroys the public’s confidence in the results and conclusions from the data being skewed for political gain.

  5. They can close churches and religious organizations but political rallies gay pride parades and street violence are left unattended to. Our Police and law enforcement are being attacked and unbelievably inconceivably are threatened by liberal ph dents to defund police precincts all over our country. The Bible spoke of this in Matthew 24 . It is prophesied that Lawlessness would raise its ugly head in these latter days of abominations and tribulation. This would come before the great tribulation the AntiChrist spirit and anti semitism would invade the rebellious world at large. Many Christians will fall under the New World Order and The World Health Organization. This is The elites plan of depopulation starting with the lame and older generation. Godless and and devoid of any fear of God they are morally degenerates. The Beast is alive and now here amongst the whole world. Yes the world is polluted and infected with sin.

  6. Please, for heaven’s sake stop this stuff. Everyone is responsible for everything. Let us pray and rely on God Almighty. This is our hope and the best way to go. Go to pray.
