De Blasio's Power Grab Of Private Sector Is Enough To Make You Sick
The New York City Mayor's days are numbered but that didn't stop him from using the new Covid-19 variant to attack the private sector. On his way out the door, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced new tyrannical efforts to force vaccine mandates on private businesses. He did so under the ruse that it was to preemptively prevent the spread of the Omicron variant from South Africa.
Here's the kicker... The variant has already been detected in about 17 US states. So what is this crap?
The Mayor also announced that children as young as 5 will be required to be vaccinated before attending indoor or outdoor activities.

“We’ve got the colder weather, which is going to really create additional challenges with the Delta variant, we’ve got holiday gatherings. We in New York City have decided to use a preemptive strike to really do something bold to stop the further growth of COVID and the dangers it’s causing to all of us,” de Blasio said before announcing that his health department would have more information later on Monday.
We’re taking a preemptive strike:

“Though it’s too early to really make any definitive statements about it, thus far, it does not look like there’s a great degree of severity to it,” Fauci told CNN’s State of the Union. Fauci also said that the vaccine may offer “some degree, and maybe a considerable degree, of protection against the omicron variant, if, in fact, it starts to take hold in a dominant way in this country.”
It's important to note that the doctor who first identified the new strain in South Africa released a statement explaining that the panic over the new variant was unwarranted. According to the doctor's findings, the new virus is extremely mild and had not to lead to any hospitalizations in her country.
“We've seen a sharp increase in cases for the past 10 days. So far they have mostly been very mild cases, with patients having flu-like symptoms: dry coughs, fever, night sweats, a lot of body pains," said Dr. Unben Pillay, a general practitioner in Gauteng province where 81% of the new cases have been reported.
Dr. Angelique Coetzee, chair of the South African Medical Association, told the BBC on Sunday that she started to see patients around Nov.18 presenting with "unusual symptoms" that differed slightly to those associated with the delta variant, which is the most virulent strain of the virus to date and globally dominant.
