FWIU, there is no real evidence to this, it's just a guess at this point.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Now our esteemed governor whats-her-name has declared a... state of emergency, because reasons.

And Israel is closing its borders for two weeks.

Sounds like a Trevor Noah line.

It's a real thing she said. The former president said he was aware a woman with whom he had unprotected encounters had HIV, but he could not have contracted it because he took a two shower following the encounter.

We do know some things, like that it has many mutations, 32 in the spike protein. That, combined with the sharp (10x plus) increase in cases over a few days is the justification. I'm yet to see any evidence being reported that the sharp increase in cases is due to the b1.1.529 variant.

Yes, the panic does seem to be an overreaction at this point, but to be fair we don't see the same panic for every new variant.

Maybe he will restrict from the real hotspots and not the fake one?

This is misleading. SA has a sub 25% vaccination rate, so a 1 to 4 ratio is actually not very comforting at all.

IDK. So far some of these measures have had some positive effects. Can't complain.

Just look around DDF.

PPP
EIDL
(for those that were/are on it) Medicaid auto-extending. SNAP to the max. (and no need to recertify).
Mortgage relief (no payments for 18 months with no effect on credit; deferrals; modifications - expect PMMS rate to drop along with bond yields).
Wide open award availability NYC-TLV in J, and bargain revenue fares.

These are because of the new state of emergency declared by NYS?


…also, since when do you believe that unilaterally expanding welfare is a positive?

Many of the measures are due to state of emergency.

Did I mention anything about believing. The bottom line is that these measures put lots of money in people's pockets.
