Gavin Newsom, we said this was going to happen.
Counties are tired of being locked up and they are going to start publicly shame you. You are hurting our economy for no reason.
San Diego County is now in the mix of criticizing Gov. Newsom. They are even defending their comments now. Last week, San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond that said only 6 out of the more than 200 hundred coronavirus related deaths happened to patients who did not have previous underlining conditions.
However Supervisor Nathan Fletcher criticized Desmond saying “that may be one of the dumbest things” that he’s heard anyone say.
But during the county's daily press briefing when asked about the statement, Public Health Officer Dr. Wilma Wooten responded saying “the six that do not have underlying medical conditions are not more significant than the other deaths.”
Desmond went on Good Morning San Diego to defend his statements and argued that he's trying to protect the most vulnerable. “I was speaking to the issue when it comes to opening up businesses.”
Even the former of San Marcos got involved in this fight for reopening. He believes the state is “holding our jobs and the economy hostage.”
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to ask Gov. Newsom to rush the reopening of businesses in their county.
That 1 vote? Coming from none other than Supervisor Nathan Fletcher. Even though the rest of his colleagues voted for this. He sent his own personal letter to Newsom.
“Given we have not even opened `Stage 2′ businesses, I do not believe it is time to call on the state to allow the immediate opening of `Stage 3′ entities including higher-risk activities like gatherings and businesses with high exposure, intensity and duration of risk,” Fletcher said Tuesday.
