Emails prove Nashville mayors office and Health Official lied/hid COVID truth
LINK

Lots of businesses closed forever, people losing jobs. All for nothing. This is a big deal.

quote:

The coronavirus cases on lower Broadway may have been so low that the mayor’s office and the metro health department decided to keep it secret.

Emails between the mayor’s senior advisor and the health department reveal only a partial picture. But what they reveal is disturbing.

The discussion involves the low number of coronavirus cases emerging from bars and restaurants and how to handle that and most disturbingly how to keep it from the public.


And here it is, what they destroyed people's lives over:
quote:

On June 30th, contact tracing was giving a small view of coronavirus clusters. Construction and nursing homes causing problems more than a thousand cases traced to each category, but bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases.



The rest of the article:
quote:

Leslie Waller from the health department asks “This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?

“Correct, not for public consumption.”
Writes senior advisor Benjamin Eagles

A month later the health department is asked point blank about the rumor there are only 80 cases traced to bars and restaurants.

Tennessean reporter Nate Rau asks “the figure you gave of “more than 80” does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a very big problem?

Health department official Brian Todd asks 5 health department officials: Please advise how you recommend I respond.

The name at the top of the response is clipped off but you may find the answer unacceptable.

“My two cents. We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site."

We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be “because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.

Neither the health department or the mayor’s office would confirm the authenticity of the emails but councilmember Steve Glover had a metro staff attorney inquire. Here’s the official answer:

“I was able to get verification from the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health that these emails are real” answered the staff attorney.

Glover says this is Metro Nashville orchestrating a cover up. "They are fabricating information. They’ve blown there entire credibility Dennis. Its gone i don’t trust a thing they say going forward ...nothing."

Glover says he has been contacted by an endless stream of downtown bartenders, waitresses, and restaurant owners. Why would they not release these numbers?

"We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes their apartments etcetera and we did it on bogus data. That should be illegal!" he says.

Again, we weren’t told by the mayor’s office this wasn’t true. We were told to file a freedom of information act request.

Which allows us now to ask the question.why are you keeping this from us? Why would you even want to? Its just the real numbers and what could possibly be an honorable motive?

It’s amazing to see how far Nashville has gotten with such horrible leadership.

Unreal. The people of Nashville should drag the mayor and his staff out of their offices. And for what? If the data supports bars and restaurants being able to remain open, why punish the blue collar lifeblood of your town? Politics? Despicable human beings.

Dude our Governor was saying we had 1400 covid hospitalized patients in July to keep us in phase 2. We had 350 during that time in the entire state. We had seen a trend down or flat line since the first week in May.

The people of nashville are the former people of wisconsin and california and they all have the “in this house love is love, water is life, science is everything” stupid as sh!@ signs in their yards. The New Nashville pu@@ies probably love that their liberal mayor lies to his people.

Numbers were higher on construction job sites, but guess which mayor also owns a construction business?

If this is the kind of thing happening in Nashville, just imagine NYC and CA.

Almost all of them. St. Louis County has shut down youth sports without a single documented case of Covid transmission due to thousands of kids playing sports.

But they absolutely, definitely DID NOT make any false statements on COVID deaths right? Right?

My guess is that when the final calculations are made about 16 months from now, 25-40% of the coronavirus “deaths” simply won’t add up.
