(Natural News) Los Angeles County is reportedly seeing a sudden increase in new cases of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), and the area health department says that the George Floyd protests are more than likely to blame – not Trump rallies, as some fake news outlets are now claiming.
During a recent press conference, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health explained that there really is no other explanation for this uptick other than the protests because Los Angeles has been under heavy lockdown for months.
“What we haven’t really been able to do because we have such a high volume of cases coming in is really pinpoint whether or not the exact source of an exposure was a protest,” stated Barbara Ferrer, director of DPH.
“I do want to say that it’s highly likely, given the increased numbers that we’re seeing, that some of this is, in fact, people who may have been in a crowded situation at one of the protests where there was spread.”
All public gatherings of pretty much any size have been prohibited in Los Angeles County for a while now, the only exception being when roving hordes of people began to flood the streets with protests, rioting and looting. Since the county stood down and allowed this destruction to take place, the apparent consequence was more cases of the virus.
“While some of this may be due to lags in reporting, the numbers do tell us that we’re seeing an increase in community transmission,” Ferrer went on to state.
