It’s almost as if he likes it like this.
California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom vows to make the coronavirus emergency measures in California its “new normal” unless — and it’s a big if — a vaccine for the virus is ready.
According to Breitbart:
Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Tuesday warned that, while California will move into the next phase of reopening its economy this week, it is “not going back to normal” until there is a vaccine.
Newsom this week announced that the state will move into the next phase of its recovery plan by Friday, May 8, allowing certain businesses — like bookstores, flower shops, clothing stores, and sporting goods stores — to reopen with certain modifications, which will be provided this week. According to the governor, offices and dine-in restaurants “will be part of a later Stage 2 opening.”
This is a speculative stretch. President Trump has stated that a vaccine may be in place by the end of the year, and the press has screamed that the president’s projection is overly optimistic. If it happens, it will indeed be in a short period of time for a vaccine. But it will be a lethal eternity for an economy.
