    No, but it does remind me of media distortions.

    The Director and a research associate at Oxford University's Centre for Evidence Based Medicine have written an article for a major UK newspaper saying that there is no scientific basis for the 6 foot social distancing rule:

    One out of how many thousands. Typical republican bullshit where you look for one instance to prove something most likely untrue. And sometimes they go a step further, like Antifa being terrorists, when there is no evidence at all.
    I see you say "professors say" but only mention one.

    What are you saying Tony ? If a group unlawfully occupies public and private property and extorts , intimidates, destroys, robs and totally ruins areas of cities what are they ?

    There is also a second study from professors at the University of Dundee in Scotland that also says that there is no scientific evidence that the 6 foot / 2 meter social distancing has any impact, but the major article I referred to is not just two random scientists, but one of them is the Director of the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine at Oxford University, one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Since all of these scientists are located in the UK, I strongly suspect that any impact on American politics would not have even crossed their minds.

    Looks like you and your experts haven't done such a good job with virus control in North Carolina.

    The problem in North Carolina is a one man show by our Democrat governor, assisted by his SJW Secretary of DHHS, Mandy Cohen. Our state Emergency Management Act does not give the governor the unilateral powers he has assumed for himself. That act allows an executive order in an emergency to restrict private individuals and businesses ONLY when the Council of State concurs with the governor's orders. Gov. Cooper's first EO to do that, which closed restaurants, recites that it was concurred with by the Council of State, but that is a baldfaced lie. Cooper emailed a copy of that proposed order to each member of the Council of State and asked them to email back their approval, but a majority of the Council emailed back a DISapproval. Cooper unlawfully issued the EO anyway. Since then, Cooper has thumbed his nose at the law by not even asking the Council of State to concur. He has unilaterally issued whatever orders he wanted. The Lieutenant Governor publicly denounced him for failing to follow the law and consult the required check and balance on gubenatorial authority, the Council of State. Now, the Lt. Governor has announced he will sue over the issue.

    One particular area of concern on Cooper and Cohen's handling of the virus has to do with nursing homes. Unlike states like Florida which realized nursing homes were particularly vulnerable with this virus and put a high priority on them, Cooper and Cohen did not. When a reporter for WBTV News asked for data on the virus at nursing homes, Cooper and Cohen refused to turn it over, so WBTV sued them under the Public Records Act. Just before the judge was about to rule, Cooper turned over than data, and it turned out that 60% of virus deaths in the state were in nursing homes, by far the highest percentage in the south. Cohen's department is the one that regulates nursing homes, but they had done absolutely nothing about increasing the protection of those most vulnerable citizens, and even after that data got out, they still haven't.

    Testing has been another area of incompetence by this pair. They dragged their feet on awarding a testing contract, and then gave it to a political crony which has been really slow on the uptake.

    Cooper and Cohen have hamstrung private businesses putting many out of business, but done nothing to protect our most vulnerable citizens in the nursing homes. That is absolutely shameful.

    I did not vote for Cooper last time and do not plan to in November.
