Polis declared COVID over for MLB game, now is Governor Outbreak
Governor Polis was so desperate to take away the MLB All-Star Game from Republicans in Georgia that he assured Coloradans that the COVID-19 pandemic would end with the first pitch on July 13.
The Denver Post reports that the event has been added to the outbreak list with 14 cases reported one week after the game.
Not wanting Denver or Cops to look irresponsible, the Mail proceeded to
to blame explain:
While 14 cases are not insignificant, the All-Star Game is not one of the largest outbreaks currently considered active in Colorado.
The health department still lists last month’s Country Jam music festival in Mesa County as an active outbreak, with 23 cases from staff and attendees.
The Post didn’t mention any of the baseball players in the All-Stars game, but it did list the country music stars who performed at the music festival, as if they had something to do with it.
It’s really not a fair comparison, because the Western Slope event took place on June 23, and after two weeks, a total of 16 cases were reported.
That’s in a crowd of 24,000.
More than 49,000 attended the ball game and just a week later 14 cases were reported.
Interestingly, the Denver Post reported in those preliminary Music Jam numbers a week before the ball game, but that didn’t make Polis stop to cancel the game, nor should I have.
Frankly, the number of cases from both events just doesn’t seem drastic considering the number of attendees.
But the media is determined to exaggerate every virus number right now, without blaming the Democrats.
The hint here is that the Western Slope country music festival where all those Republicans live was a high-profile event, while the Denver ball game was just a small outbreak.
It would be really helpful if the media and politicians stopped promoting this constantly contradicting issue so that the public can finally figure it all out for themselves.
