Levine And Wolf Do “not have the data”


But Allegheny County has some “old” data that was used for Levine’s and Wolf’s new  67 county “targeted” lockdown from Philadelphia to Erie and from Pittsburgh to Scranton and all points in between.

“We have the data…”

Wolf was also asked about the idea of providing specific examples of contact tracing that

has tied a sizable number of new confirmed coronavirus cases to bars and restaurants. He said that the state does have that information but is not releasing it on a bar-by-bar basis.

We can’t tell you, I mean, that has been done, where a bar has been identified, and that has created all kinds of problems. I think that was South Korea did that. We don’t want to do that. We think that’s inappropriate. We have the data, we know this is where the problem is. Are we going to tell you exactly which bars? No, we’re not going to do that.”

“the state does not have the data…”

“Levine says, the state does not have the data showing the exact bars, restaurants and nightclubs linked to cases but has general data on it, and that data does exist.” and “We’ll be glad to look at it and consider…” releasing that secret data that she used to close every bar in Pennsylvania and reduce restaurant seating capacity to 25% and under what circumstances Wolf and her will permit a customer to consume alcohol onsite.

“I don’t have tables that can tell you that this bar has had this many patients,” said Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine. “But we have data from our contract tracing, Allegheny County has data from its contract tracing about restaurants bars clubs etc, which is why we took that action.”Levine-and-Wolf-370x215

Incredibly the Commonwealth Secretary of Health cites Allegheny Counties data for closing every bar in 67 counties and reducing restaurant seating capacity to 25%.

What does Allegheny County say?

A county health department spokesperson told FOX43 “you’re asking for some old details as there are daily updates.” However, the Wolf Administration is using these “old” details as support for new COVID-19 mitigation efforts.

What do the victim’s say?

Some restaurant owners are buckling under the weight of Governor Tom Wolf’s statewide restrictions on indoor and outdoor dining.

White Rose Restaurant Group announced it is temporarily closing… it is better for them to suspend operations than continue under current regulations. Other restaurant owners said employees are quitting.

“They can`t operate at 25 percent. They can`t even open their doors at 25 percent,” said Jim Delisio, owner of Racehorse Tavern in York.

Faced with crippling new limits on how many customers can sit inside, Chick’s Diner, a storied vintage steel diner at Moosic Street and Meadow Avenue in Scranton closed indefinitely.


Wolf Administration has yet to release the state data that led to the decision to increase restrictions on bars and restaurants

State officials say, the data exists, but have not said if they will release it.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — A week after the Wolf Administration announced new restrictions on bars and restaurant, the state has yet to release its state data on what led to the decision.

In the past week, we’ve been asking for the specific state data that led the Wolf Administration to make that decision, but the administration hasn’t given us a straight answer as to what the data is and if they will release it.

“I don’t have tables that can tell you that this bar has had this many patients,” said Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine. “But we have data from our contract tracing, Allegheny County has data from its contract tracing about restaurants bars clubs etc, which is why we took that action.”

Dr. Levine says, the state does not have the data showing the exact bars, restaurants and nightclubs linked to cases but has general data on it, and that data does exist. While the state has yet to release it, the Allegheny Health Department released what it has. It shows new cases have been linked to young people visiting bars, restaurants and nightclubs.

We asked once more during Thursday’s press conference if the department will release the data, “We’ll be glad to look at it and consider it,” said Dr. Levine.
