New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio seems bound-and-determined to leave the city permanently damaged with his disastrous socialist policies before finally leaving office early next year.
On Monday, he appeared on Morning Joe to announce that he was issuing a city wide mandate for private sector employees to be vaccinated.
“We in New York City have decided to use a preemptive strike to really do something bold to stop the further growth of COVID and the dangers it’s causing to all of us,” de Blasio said. “All private-sector employers in New York City will be covered by this vaccine mandate as of Dec. 27.”
“We’ve got omicron as a new factor, we’ve got the colder weather, which is going to really create additional challenges with the delta variant, we’ve got holiday gatherings,” de Blasio also said.
CBS New York reported on the details of the city wide ‘mandate.’
“All private-sector workers in New York City will be subject to the mayor’s vaccine mandate starting Dec. 27, affecting 184,000 businesses, while vaccine proof for indoor dining, fitness and entertainment will be required for children ages 5 to 11, according to a toughened vaccine mandate announced by Bill de Blasio Monday,” CBS noted.
“The current rule will also expand to require two vaccine doses instead of proof of only one as far as people age 12 and older are concerned, the mayor said,” the report added. “That excludes people who were vaccinated with Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose shot.”
“Kids aged 5 to 11 only need to show proof of one dose when the requirement for them kicks in on Dec. 14, considering they only first became eligible for their initial doses in early November and must wait at least 21 days between Pfizer’s doses,” the report said.
The medical experts who have dealt with the Omicron variant have described the symptoms it causes as “mild.” Furthermore, children are at infinitesimal risks from Covid.
Children one to four years old have experienced 70 Covid-related deaths over the last twenty months of the pandemic. This is out of a total of 6,649 total deaths in that age group.
Furthermore, the CDC says that 95% of those Covid-related deaths were among those with serious comorbidities (typically, multiple comorbidities). Since there are approximately 20 million children in this age group, the estimated survival rate is 99.99965%. If you estimate the survival rate for healthy children, you will find it is a 99.99998% survival rate.
The mRNA therapeutics being marketed as “vaccines” only have a limited amount of data to back up any long-term track record. And the clinical trials data submitted by Pfizer to the FDA has been withheld and is being leaked out 500 redacted pages at a time over 55 years.
One South African doctor also reprimanded governments for taking “extreme action” over the Omicron variant.
“As chair of the South African Medical Association and a GP of 33 years’ standing, I have seen a lot over my medical career,” Dr. Angelique Coetzee said. “But nothing has prepared me for the extraordinary global reaction that met my announcement this week that I had seen a young man in my surgery who had a case of Covid that turned out to be the Omicron variant.”
“Quite simply, I have been stunned at the response – and especially from Britain,” she added.
“And let me be clear: nothing I have seen about this new variant warrants the extreme action the UK government has taken in response to it,” Dr. Coetzee added.
As mentioned earlier at The Wildfire Newsletter, the Biden federal vaccine mandate is currently blocked in all 50 states. Since Mayor de Blasio is running out of time in office, he apparently felt compelled to issue it anyway. Any lawsuits are likely to be ultimately decided when he is long gone.
New York has taken some of the most aggressive Covid response actions in the nation, but has no results to show for it, except for damaging job creation, the tourism industry, and the state of freedom for the citizens.
The Covid cases, hospitalizations and deaths are on the rise in New York, despite vaccine mandates, mask mandates, and even vaccine “passports” in New York City. The vaccination rates are also extremely high: More than 99% of seniors and 90% of those 12 and up are “vaccinated.”
However, this is doing little or nothing to stop the spread. This is because these leaky “vaccines” transmit the variants, as Becker News reported months ago, including the Delta and Omicron variants.
Compare the State of Florida, which has overcome its “third wave,” which was obviously a seasonal wave.
The State of Florida is now demonstrating more herd immunity than New York. It has accomplished this with a combination of using the mRNA therapeutics being marketed as “vaccines” for the at-risk elderly population, therapies like monoclonal antibodies, and natural immunity (CDC estimates put this figure at approximately 150 million to 190 million in the United States).
Most importantly, Florida has accomplished this under a state of freedom that respects American citizens’ human rights. There are no statewide mask mandates, vaccine passports are banned, and vaccine mandate enforcement is banned.
Florida is now seen as a safe haven from authoritarian failed states like New York.
