The recovery rate of the coronavirus remains at 98%. Flattening the curve is already behind us, so why is the state still on lockdown? California hospitals are not and never were, overrun with coronavirus victims, and are in fact, laying off staff throughout the country.
Listening to California Gov. Gavin Newsom one would think that most of the 40 million Californians are still at risk of dropping dead of the virus. The “data” and “science” Newsom claims is leading his decision making process has really led to Californians being deprived of Constitutional and civil rights as they are prohibited from going to work, their businesses are ordered shut down, the ordered closure of all group events regardless of size, the arrest of people in their cars in church parking lots to attend services, and the closure of state beaches, and state and regional parks.
One sector of the economy which is actually dropping dead is the business community: small, medium and large businesses are in peril, and government stimulus payments, grants and loans will only have a very temporary impact.
