Mayor De'Blasio seeks to be King of a Covid Comeback, but has proven to be the Jester of Safety.
September 1, 2021
I write this piece as both a Single Father and Advocate. It is my duty to make sure that the public knows the truth. The numbers of children who have died, due to Covid and complications related to Covid has been increasing drastically in the United States. In the past week, over 121 children have died in the U.S. Since last week, there has been 121,000 more cases of children ages 6 months and up being diagnosed with Covid. In various states, the pediatric intensive care units are full and there is no more room. The Mayor has been pushing vaccination as a cure all, which is dangerous. It has isolated those who are not able to be vaccinated. The vaccine alone is not an adequate means to stop Covid. Breakthrough cases and hospitalizations of both vaccinated and unvaccinated have increased, as well as the number of those admitted to the ICU. We must have an adequate mask mandate, social distancing protocol and a remote learning option for children.
