Aunt Bee has officially conceded to the coronavirus.
“Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey and State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris have issued an order for Alabama residents to stay at home except for “essential activities” effective at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The governor announced the update to state measures to control the coronanvirus pandemic at the Capitol this afternoon.
The order states that it will remain in full force and effect until 5 p.m. on April 30. “Prior to 5:00 p.m. on April 30, 2020, a determination shall be made whether to extend this Order—or, if circumstances permit, to relax this Order.” …”
I’m absolutely certain this is not an elaborate conspiracy now. Gov. Kay Ivey publicly agonized over making this decision for weeks. Georgia, Florida, Mississippi and Tennessee are all under lockdown now. We were literally surrounded by a lockdown on all sides before she made the call.
If I was the governor of Alabama, I would have taken swift and radical action to invoke our sovereignty to close our airports and borders in January until testing could be developed to screen for the coronavirus. I would have taken the heat from the media which would have called me a racist and a xenophobe. I would have forced the federal government to sue me and send in the National Guard. I wouldn’t have sat idly by for two months. My instincts and observations about the virus were correct.
“MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — More than 5,000 medical masks that Montgomery County received from the national stockpile were rotted, the local emergency management director said Thursday.
States and cities are receiving shipments from the National Strategic Stockpile to try to relieve shortages in medical equipment because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Christi Thornton, the city/county emergency management director, said the shipment of 5,880 procedure masks received last week were unusable because of dry rot. The masks had a 2010 expiration date, according to the city’s response to a survey by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. …”
The Trump administration shipped Montgomery County over 5,000 rotted face masks from the National Strategic Stockpile. This is the worst conspiracy ever. This is just an inept elite which has bled our country dry for decades bungling a historic national crisis which was bound to happen.
Note: Isn’t the flu supposed to go away in April? SARS isn’t the flu, bro.
