FoxNews.com reports that
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul issued a state of emergency order on Friday in response to the identification of the COVID-19 omicron variant.
The emergency order is intended to increase hospital capacity in New York and will last until at least Jan. 15, when it will be reassessed.
According to a copy of the order, the state will utilize the “surge and flex system,” which allows the Department of Health to limit non-essential and non-urgent hospital procedures in situations where a hospital has less than 10% staffed bed capacity.
The new hospital procedures will take effect Dec. 3.
Gov. Hochul said while the omicron variant hasn’t been detected in New York state, preparations need to be made, adding that the state is seeing “warning signs” of a potential spike in cases.
“We’ve taken extraordinary action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and combat this pandemic. However, we continue to see warning signs of spikes this upcoming winter, and while the new Omicron variant has yet to be detected in New York State, it’s coming,” Gov. Hochul said in a press release.
“In preparation, I am announcing urgent steps today to expand hospital capacity and help ensure our hospital systems can tackle any challenges posed by the pandemic as we head into the winter months,” Hochul added. “The vaccine remains one of our greatest weapons in fighting the pandemic, and I encourage every New Yorker to get vaccinated, and get the booster if you’re fully vaccinated.”
The move comes after President Biden announced a restriction on travel from South Africa and seven other countries in the region beginning Monday.
The World Health Organization announced Friday that the omicron variant has a “large number of mutations … some of which are concerning.”
The variant has been detected in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi.
Curiouser and curiouser.
Isn’t it quite a coincidence how shortly after Bid Pharma announced that there was a COVID-19 Vaccine available for small children and Biden announced that he was going to push for a mandate to get our children and grandchildren vaccinated, a new variant pops up out of nowhere that is especially harmful to small children?
Do you remember how the Democrat Elite, include Biden, acted when Trump placed overseas Travel Bans in place to protect our country from COVID-19?
They thought that it was the worst form of Xenophobic Fascism that they had ever scene.
And now, Biden is going to put in place Travel Bans for the same reason that Trump did. Or, maybe not.
You see, boys and girls, at this point, that is what all of these mandates and hyperventilating about COVID-19 by the Biden Administration and the Democrat Elite is all about.
It is about controlling the “proletariat”, so that the “Politburo” (i.e. Democrat Elite) can go forward with their plans to install Marxism as the for of government in power in Washington, D.C.
Ever step that the Biden Administration has taken to “slow the spread” of COVID019 has had a political motivation behind it.
And, they have not been very successful.
The success of Governor Ron DeSantis’ health plan of personal Responsibility and freedom in dealing with COVID-19 is driving the Dems batty.
I believe that, at this point, the Dems are coming up with these new variants simply to keep Americans afraid to live their lives as the see fit.
Individual Freedom is contrary to the Marxist Central Government which the Dems are attempting to set up in America.
Americans are waking up to this fact and they are beginning to simply ignore these COVID-19 Mandates because they view them for what they are: a political strategy designed to take away Americans’ freedom.
There is going to be a Political Tsunami involving the Midterm Elections of 2022.
And, the results are going to be “radical change” that every Patriotic American can get behind.
