Texas was experiencing a bit of freedom for a while there. The reason is that Governor “Poppy Cockless,” the cripple Greg Abbott, was locked up in his house crying about the death of George Floyd, whom he truly loved with his soul.
It’s just like the cripple to blame those with functional legs for his problems.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Tuesday that the state is seeing a surge in coronavirus cases from people under 30. The state hit new highs Tuesday in the number of new infections and the number of new hospitalizations since the outbreak began.
There were 2,622 new cases of the coronavirus recorded Tuesday, surpassing the previous record that was set on June 10, according to the Texas Department of Public Health. The state also had 2,518 new hospitalizations, the fifth straight day of record highs. The number of people hospitalized has been increasing steadily since May 25, when 1,511 people were hospitalized.
“The majority of people who tested positive since the beginning of June have been people under the age of 30,” Abbott said at a press conference. Abbott said the increase could be the result of Memorial Day gatherings or from “bar-type settings.”
Texas moved ahead with Phase 3 of its reopening on June 3, with bars allowed to open at 50% capacity and restaurants at 75% capacity. Abbott repeated the warning from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission that bars and restaurants would lose their liquor license for 30 days if they were not adhering to the guidelines.
“We are in the middle of a short period of time where all of us have to coexist with COVID-19,” Abbott said. “The reality is COVID-19 still exists in Texas.”
According to the Texas Tribune, data from many of the state’s largest counties are showing an uptick in cases in from young people. The San Antonio Express-News reported more than half of Bexar County’s new cases are people younger than 40.
“Younger folks: You’re not immune to this,” San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg warned Tuesday.
Actually, we are.
This is all a hoax.
If the old people are afraid of the disease, they should stay inside. It has nothing to do with us. And by us, I mean “healthy people under the age of 70.”
This is the biggest hoax in history.
The fact that a Republican is promoting this is beyond the pale. Especially in Texas.
