Social Justice Based Contact Tracing

When a person tests positive for COVID-19, government doesn’t ask them if they were at a BLM protest. Yet experts somehow know that the protests didn’t spread the virus.

    I think you are suggesting that BLM protests caused an increase in COVID19 infections.

    But elsewhere, I remember you attributing increased COVID19 infection rates to increased testing.

    Is this a case of high temperatures being caused by global warming, and low temperatures being caused by climate change?

    I am interested in how you distinguish BLM protest related cases from increased testing related cases.

      The site https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/testing/tracker/overview shows that in Texas, testing increased roughly from 12. to 1.8 per thousand over the period of the roughly tenfold rise in cases shown here. A 50% increase in testing won’t explain an order-of-magnitude increase in hospitalization.

      In fairness, it is also true that Memorial Day get-togethers would also have occurred toward the beginning of the shaded dates, and they might have had an affect as well. HOWEVER: including multiple factors is a lot different than excluding one of these for clearly propagandistic motives, especially when the one excluded involves uncontrolled mass gatherings, with shouting and vocalizing. That’s suppression.

      So, I think Tony is actually suggesting that the MSM should be seriously discussing the role that BLM mass gatherings might have had, instead of dismissing them cavalierly because they’re politically inconvenient.

        Thank you for your response.

        Is the magnitude of the surge in American COVID19 infection rates elsewhere (away from BLM protests) entirely explained by increased testing?

        Thanks again.

    Mr. Heller: Well, if you want the data to tell a story, you don’t ask silly questions that yield non-conforming data. It’s just like the tree rings that tell the story of climate doom, you may have to leave some samples on the lab floor (office floor, in many cases) for effective climate communications.
