"Every single day of this crisis this State Government Committee in Pennsylvania has met so that their members could line up one after one after one and explain that it was safe to go back to work," he said. "During that time period they were testing positive. They were notifying one another. And they didn’t notify us."
"I never ever, ever knew that the Republican leadership of this state would put so many of us at risk for partisanship to cover up a lie," he said during the nearly 12-minute tirade. "And that lie is that we're all safe from COVID."
Rep. Andrew Lewis, R-Dauphin, said in a Facebook Live address Wednesday night, hours after he publicly announced he had tested positive, that he informed as few people as possible about contracting the coronavirus because he wanted to protect the privacy of those around him and because he was only in close quarters with a handful of house colleagues.
So coronavirus has become politicized and the ones doing it have paper-thin excuses for doing so. What an ass! Andrew Lewis gives his excuse for not telling his colleagues he had tested positive, …"because he wanted to protect the privacy of those around him and because he was only in close quarters with a handful of house colleagues.”
Nice of him to want to protect privacy; what about the health and welfare of his colleagues and the hundreds of others they probably contacted in the following days who could have been infected?? And oh! By the way, most of those others would be his political opponents. Any idiot with half a brain could understand the basic transmission process yet this “leader” ignores it.
First, he is woefully ignorant about virus infection transmission. That is hard to believe and if it is true, do we really want someone that uninformed making decisions for the masses?
Second, he intentionally kept quiet, knowing full well he could intentionally infect those of the other party. Much easier to believe, more plausible, and sadly, the new political norm.
