Letter: Stay-at-home order based on bad data

Published 12:00 am Thursday, May 28, 2020

This lockdown order is based on what?

Where is Gov. Roy Cooper getting his data from? Why has he not shared this info with us? I, for one, am very skeptical about the handling of this whole thing. Give or take, Dr. Mandy Cohen stated around April 23, “Fellow doctors, use your best clinical judgment. If you know the test is wrong and you know the person has COVID-19, send another test or just tell them they have COVID-19 please stay isolated.”

Wait, what? Does this not draw red flags or is it just me?

In my opinion, she just told doctors across the state to lie to the people and tell them false info. What about the false positives from tests? Oh, that doesn’t matter.

Why not try telling us the truth and treating us like grown adults and allowing us to make the decisions we, adults, feel are necessary for our family and community survival?

Cooper needs to stop listening to Cohen and House Speaker Nancy Pelsoi with their testing, testing, testing nonsense. The goal posts keep moving.

Dr. Cohen served as the chief operating officer and chief of staff at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the Obama administration. No political bias there.

Now, the Mayor of Charlotte went on MSNBC stating that they have an obligation to protect people and the commitment to the Republican National Convention may be rejected.

This is a reader’s digest version, but you get the point. This stay home order is based on false data. Why do I feel this is political?
