Only 1.5% Contacted Say They Went To A Pennsylvania Restaurant Prior To Testing Positive For China Flu – Therefore Wolf Unilaterally Bans Indoor Dining Dec. 12 to Jan. 4


That’s only 1.5% say they visited a restaurant prior to testing positive, one may certainly deduce that not 100% of the 1.5% contracted the China Flu while visiting a restaurant and the actual figure may be well below 1%.


Most people – more than 40,000 – have actually told contact tracers that they didn’t visit any businesses in those 2 weeks prior to their positive test result.

Only 1.5% of Pennsylvanians Who Had COVID Went to a Restaurant in the 2 Weeks Prior to Diagnosis

On Saturday, Pennsylvania restaurants will no longer be able to serve customers indoors. Earlier this week, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf ordered restaurants to shut down indoor dining in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

Additionally, other new orders issued issued on Thursday closed bars entirely. Gyms and fitness centers were also closed.

But are these businesses really to blame for the spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania communities? Hardly, if you actually trust the data, as Tom Wolf and Health Secretary Rachel Levine claim they do.

Every week, Pennsylvania releases its contact tracing investigation results. Contact tracers around the state are trying to find out the places people who’ve tested positive have been in the two weeks prior to their diagnosis. But the data the tracers are collecting doesn’t support what Wolf did on Thursday.

The only reason Wolf did it is because he thinks he can.

Pennsylvania Restaurants, Bars Closed Because Governor Doesn’t Believe in Math

As of Dec. 7, according to state data compiled by the Commonwealth Foundation, there were 258,853 cases of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania since July 13.

Contact tracers weren’t able to make their all-important contact with most of them. They failed to reach 205,550 of those infected, or 79.4% of them. So, we don’t really know where those people visited prior to learning they were COVID positive.

Of the 21.6% who did respond to Pennsylvania contact tracers, only 1.5% said they went to a restaurant. That’s right, just 1.5%, or 3,964 of the more than a quarter-million part of a contact tracing investigation.

To be clear, Pennsylvania closed restaurants to indoor dining because 1.5% of the people who tested positive for COVID-19 said they visited one in the 2 weeks prior.
