Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told his constituents Wednesday night that it’s time to hunker down and “cancel everything” due to rising Covid cases.
Of course Garcetti wasn’t talking to any of the Democrat elites in California who continue to dine in swanky restaurants as they tell the peasants to stay home.
He issued an order for residents to stay at home, warning that the city is approaching a “devastating tipping point” in its fight against COVID-19 that would overwhelm the hospital system.
“We must minimize contact with others as much as possible,” Garcetti wrote in the order dated Dec. 2. The steps were needed to avoid risking “needless suffering and death,” he said.

“The next three months are going to be the most difficult in the public health history of this nation,” Garcetti said. “The latest data is nothing short of alarming. In the last month alone, our daily infections have tripled, our hospitalizations have more than tripled and are at a new peak.”
Then Garcetti scolded Americans for spending time with their families on Thanksgiving.
“These numbers don’t reflect the Thanksgiving effect of time spent together with families when many people were gathering and traveling in defiance of public health warnings,” he said.

Garcetti warned that if the people of Los Angeles don’t listen to his crazed demands, “We will run out of hospital beds here in Los Angeles by Christmas.”
Recall, Garcetti went full Commie over the summer and authorized the city to shut off water and power to homes and businesses that are hosting large, unauthorized gatherings.
Garcetti is also terrified of dry sand on the beach and previously said that beaches will only be open for exercise and active recreation; people will not be allowed to touch dry sand.
