Just yesterday, audio was released of Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer saying that K-12 schools in LA will not open until after the November election. Steve Gregory, KFI News radio and the man responsible for exposing Ferrer, gave passed it on to his colleagues who host KFI’s featured segment the “John and Ken Show.” Listen to it here.
“We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier 2 or to reopening K-12 schools at least until after the election, in early November. When we look at the timing of everything, it seems to us a more realistic approach to this would be to think that we’re going to be where we are now until we are done with the election.”
Was Dr. Ferrer purposefully delaying the opening of schools to influence the 2020 Presidential Election?
After receiving the audio, Steve Gregory said that he had asked the Los Angeles County Health Department for a comment to confirm Health Director Ferrer’s statement. The Health Department did in fact respond; however, they just dodged the question with “we’re reassessing all of the time.” Gregory noted on the air that the health department’s statement is not congruent with Director Ferrer’s statement, yet the health official can be heard putting empathizing the word ‘election’ in the audio recording.
Gregory, as any other reporter would do, asked Dr. Ferrer about her comments directly on a conference call yesterday, but conveniently she did not have the time to answer his question.
Dr. Ferrer, who is not a medical professional, stated once again that this would be the best decision for L.A. County. Despite the fact that Gregory had facts of his own about the current state of the county amidst COVID:
“The positivity rate is the lowest it’s ever been since the pandemic began in Los Angeles County. Cases are down; deaths are on a downward trend. Hospitalizations are now down under 1,000, which is the first time since the pandemic began.”
We will see this theme across the country with other schools, and possibly businesses too?
