The discussion involves the low number of coronavirus cases emerging from bars and restaurants and how to handle that.and most disturbingly how to keep it from the public.
On June 30th, contact tracing was giving a small view of coronavirus clusters. Construction and nursing homes causing problems more than a thousand cases traced to each category, but bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases.
Leslie Waller from the health department asks This isnt going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayors Office?
Correct, not for public consumption. Writes senior advisor Benjamin Eagles

We are so being played.
That clown is an author with horrible grammar/no editor, and I can’t get a decent office job and am stuck in terrible security.
I can be a proofreader and get things done quickly and accurately.
in Australia, it was reported on Sky News last nite that the following piece, but a senior writer, was not published in the Print edition of the paper...it only appeared online:
16 Sept: Sydney Morning Herald Op-ed: COVID-19 has hammered home some uncomfortable truths about us as a people
by Chris Uhlmann, political editor
Soon enough there will be a global reckoning on whether the coronavirus defences did more damage than the disease.
It will be driven by the swingeing economic destruction imposed by governments that will deliver millions into poverty, driving internal and external conflicts. Beggared states will turn inward, the world will become more polarised, angrier, more dangerous.
In time it’s a fair bet the cure will be seen by many as the real curse, as people whose lives have been destroyed seek retribution...
In February and March little was known about COVID-19 and the worst was rightly assumed. Australia’s leaders reacted quickly, worked in unison and chose to buy time; to lock their populations down while health systems were fortified with a timetable set for easing their way out...
Now there is no nation plan and that is as indefensible as Victoria’s panic-stricken response. Because now we know much more about the disease and, while it is a serious illness, it is a whole lot less frightening than it is made out to be...
COVID-19 is nowhere near as deadly as the Spanish flu, which killed an estimated 50 million, mostly young, people worldwide. Fifteen thousand of those deaths were in Australia, in a population that was then just 5 million. At the time of writing, COVID-19 had killed about 930,000 people globally. Here 816 have died in a population now pushing towards 26 million.
No matter how hard the death of anyone under 50 is spun, it is so vanishingly rare among Australia’s body count as to be close to zero. If you are a woman, it is zero. In Australia there is a far greater statistical chance that someone under 60 will die in a car accident.
COVID-19 mostly kills the elderly, especially if they have an existing chronic disease. That is not an argument to let them die but it should guide government responses.
Of the 816 Australian deaths the vast majority, 606, were in residential aged care. So if you are going to throw a ring of steel around anything it should be around aged care homes, not Melbourne. The rest of the population should be liberated to get on with their lives while taking sensible health precautions...
The Victorian solution punishes the many for the few. It preferences the very old over the young, mortgaging the future of the entire school and working age population. It is hard to imagine how you could design a policy that is more profoundly unfair or damaging to a society.
If the argument is we must do everything in our power to protect the elderly, then we are already doing well. Federal Health Department data, first published in The Australian, shows there were almost 1000 fewer deaths in residential aged care in the first seven months of this year than in the same time last year...
“The lower number of deaths for this period in 2020 (32,398) compared to the same period in 2019 (33,383) is likely the result of increased influenza immunisation rates, and increased infection control protocols introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the health department note said...
This disease has revealed the character of our leaders and hammered home some uncomfortable truths about us as a people. As a nation we seem comfortable with authoritarianism and too many relish the role of prefect.
And nowhere in this often-opaque democracy has a less transparent court system, bureaucracy, police force or government than Victoria. The people there have been badly served, even as some revelled in the servitude. Its systems of power have combined to deliver the wanton destruction of its vibrant society. Its government has condemned its people to a poorer future, to higher unemployment, more poverty and less opportunity.
Rejoice. Dan Andrews has destroyed the village to save it.
The Leftists who used this virus to destroy the economy and foment chaos WILL be, ironically, unmasked as millions more every day realize they’ve been had.
These people are evil. The knew the risk was slim to none but choose to keep restaurants/bars heavily restricted because it would bring soem sense of normalcy back. They wanted the “new normal” of misery as long as they could.
This seems criminal.
Excellent piece. Really hits home what has happened in every lefty controlled area. Instead of protect the most vulnerable, make it as painful as possible for everyone for as long as possible.
the local rag is throwing a fit over all the cases in a local college town...at the bottom of the article, it states that NO ONE was hospitalized...
which means they are finding cases thru contact tracing, not by serious illness...
After the bars were allowed to stay open later for the Titans game the other night, then back to the usual closing early again, I’m waiting to hear about restaurant and bar owners joining together in a major lawsuit against Commie Cooper. I’d say that one night has given them the grounds for a heck of a case.
I’m so glad we have a mayor with sense and don’t have to deal with the garbage Nashvillians do.
Is anyone really surprised at the length Democrats and many Rinos will go to get rid of President Trump? The fires are also sick and murderous for people and wildlife. To me wearing a mask is a symbol that says Im stupid and hate America. I realize people are required to mask just to keep their jobs and buy groceries but I see people outside wearing masks when they dont have to. They dont even work!
I see people wearing masks loading groceries in their cars and no one within 50-100 feet.
I see people in my neighborhood walking their dog NO ONE else around YET they are sporting that damn mask, every time I see this I think of Joe Biden!! I cant believe people are actually wearing these damn things outside OMG!!!
Yeah, sadly I’m not even surprised by this garbage anymore. I’m still sickened by it and so angry on behalf of all those businesses and workers who have been irreparably damaged by the deceit. We must unite against these lies.
Evey day in my area some local TV station will report the breaking news that 1 student as XYZ Middle school tested positive, sorry schools closed for two days. School has only been in session for a week at most but they make is seem they got it in school. What happened to the 14 days to know if you have it.
Same thing, not one person has been hospitalized. At worst no or minor symptoms.
The mask thing is truly one of the strangest things I’ve seen in my life. It’s like a badge if honor or something. The more irrational the situation is in which to wear it, the more Brave New World points you earn...
Masks are ONLY the symbol of our submission to tyranny.
