While I was sick and in mourning, I completely missed that Governor Pritzker (D) has shut down my part of the state again. We went out today, and it’s a ghost town. Restaurants are closed, parking lots are empty.
We have had no change in mortality in this area. It stays at one invariably very elderly person dying with COVID every couple of days. Hospitals are empty. Hospitalizations are down. We were told that the “positivity rate” needs to be under 10%. It went under 10%. But we got shut down anyway because now we are told it needs to go under 6%.
Our mortality rate is 1,8% of the state mortality rate. But we are the ones who get closed down. Why? We vote red. Our economy is being targeted for destruction to make sure we don’t vote Republican anymore.
