North Carolina Joins Those Who Think COVID Is Most Dangerous At Night

Nighttime Bat Soup Virus lockdowns are the hot thing. You have all sorts of cities, like Chicago, El Paso, and Newark. Spain gave it a whirl. Israel is giving it a try (and, mind you, doing it correctly with a vote that sends it to their Parliament for approval). And California was doing it. How’d it work out there? Not good. Didn’t stop a thing

New NC order: Restaurants, bars and most retailers must close at 10 pm

Gov. Roy Cooper issued a new stay-at-home order on Tuesday to limit the spread of coronavirus, ordering most businesses to close at 10 p.m. each night, starting Friday.

“We have to act now to save lives, safeguard our hospital capacity and preserve our economy,” Cooper said during an afternoon news conference.

The order will require all restaurants, bars, personal care businesses and most retailers to be closed between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Grocery stores, pharmacies and gas stations can remain open past 10 p.m. Alcohol sales for on-site consumption will have to end at 9 p.m.

The stay-at-home order “means just what it says – people are to stay home during those hours,” the governor said, noting that late-night gatherings have helped accelerate the spread of the virus in recent weeks.

“It’s pretty clear the later in the evening you go, the larger some of these gatherings can be at some of these businesses,” he said. “What we’re trying to do is to chip away at those times.”

Well, yeah, but, there are plenty of larger gatherings during the day. So, why close most retailers like personal care and such? Or gyms? You will have people in them, but, not that many, certainly not like 5pm. As it stands, not one so-called journalist bothered to ask exactly what the science shows, what studies were used, to come to the night time lockdowns.

Of course, I’d personally rather they do this than attempt to go with another daytime lockdown, shutting businesses which are already hurting, many of which would close permanently to join all the others which collapsed during the spring lockdown. It would be interesting to see just how many would comply. And how many law enforcement offices would refuse to enforce.

If you skip to around minute 19, you see Governor Roy Cooper, followed by Dr. Mandy Cohen. Both of them took their masks off in violation of the governor’s most recent mask order. Not one member of the Credentialed Media bothered to ask why they are allowed to remove their masks to talk, but the peons aren’t.

In fairness, Cooper has not been as burdensome or dictatorial as many other govs.

    Trump is still POTUS not Biden

    Trump is not even mentioning both at every day 3000 die here
    This epedemic required early intervention trump failed

    He is still president but Russia Donnie has checked out of the presidency, now working on only lining his pockets. Grifters gotta grift.

    He checked out of the Covid fight months ago, hence the current surge killing over 2000 Americans every damn day. Russia Donnie the dealmaker shat a brick on the vaccines.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Just wondering if those who voted for Russia Donnie in 2016 are sorry they wasted their vote then and again in 2020?

    Mr Biden isn’t even president yet and he’s done more than Russia Donnie.

      Pfizer has said people with a history of severe adverse allergic reactions to vaccines or the candidate’s ingredients were excluded from their late stage trials, which is reflected in the MHRA’s emergency approval protocol.

      The new MHRA guidance, sent out to health professionals, said a much broader segment should not take the vaccine.

      “Any person with a history of a significant allergic reaction to a vaccine, medicine or food (such as previous history of anaphylactoid reaction or those who have been advised to carry an adrenaline autoinjector) should not receive the Pfizer BioNtech vaccine,” it said.

      It also said resuscitation facilities should be available for all vaccinations.

      In the United States, the FDA released documents on Tuesday in preparation for an advisory committee meeting on Thursday, saying the Pfizer vaccine’s efficacy and safety data met its expectations for authorization.

      The briefing documents said 0.63% of people in the vaccine group and 0.51% in the placebo group reported possible allergic reactions in trials, which Peter Openshaw, Professor of Experimental Medicine at Imperial College London, said was a very small number.

      • Est1950 says:

        Elwood since 6/10ths of 1 percent of people are allergic to the vaccine should we not take it. Continue to wear masks? Hide. Go bankrupt.

        What say you, Shanghai Elwood?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        A favorable quality of vaccine-based herd immunity is that the immunized are protecting the few that might not tolerate immunization. Cool huh?

        It’s not clear that 0.62% are allergic. Why do you think 0.51% of the placebo group had allergic reactions? It was probably sterile saline in the injection. The treatment group has only slightly higher allergic reactions. Most clinical trials report adverse reactions to placebo.

        “Any person with a history of a significant allergic reaction to a vaccine, medicine or food (such as previous history of anaphylactoid reaction or those who have been advised to carry an adrenaline autoinjector) should not receive the Pfizer BioNtech vaccine,” it said.

        That’s sound advice for any medicine, isn’t it? Not many people have had an anaphylactoid reaction or carry an epipen, but they probably already know to be especially careful with vaccinations.

        No doubt a few Americans die each year from the 150 million influenza immunizations.

    Well, of course COVID-19 is most dangerous at night! He consulted his Science Advisor, Debbie Harry!

    You go out at night eatin’ cars
    You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
    Mercurys and Subaru
    And you don’t stop, you keep on eatin’ cars
    Then, when there’s no more cars you go out at night
    And eat up bars where the people meet
    Face to face, dance cheek to cheek
    One to one, man to man
    Dance toe to toe, don’t move too slow
    ‘Cause the man from Mars is through with cars
    He’s eatin’ bars, yeah wall to wall
    Door to door, hall to hall
    He’s gonna eat ’em all

    I mean, really, you can’t have people going out to meet others, perhaps even hook up with new people!

    • President Elect Kye says:

      Why lockdowns? You cannot organize a proper resistance if you cannot organize at all. That’s why they pump their propaganda “Apart Together”. Trying hard to break the American spirit once again with nothing but word crap and lies.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        That’s right. The communist/Nazi/fascist takeover by Mr Biden involves unenforceable limits on gatherings engineered by Dem and GOP mayors and governors.

        If there were only some way for patriots to contact each other other than physical meetings. Maybe some enterprising, inventive patriot could event a device you type your messages and send to another patriot! Or maybe a device you could talk into and have someone on another device hear you plan your bombing of the NYTimes buildings.

        Kye, like formwiz, you should take a vacation from media and re-evaluate your life.

    Amazing how during the Trump presidency the stock market, after initially plunging during the shock of Covid in March and April, has climbed steadily afterwords. It was so good that even as deaths increased, the markets increased to the point where the three indices are at or near record highs.
