Over the weekend the media declared that Joe Biden won the election which led to mass celebration in the streets, where people were dancing, hugging, passing joints, and drinking out of the same champagne bottles, none of which spread COVID because they were wearing masks and celebrating liberal causes.

Biden supporters celebrate by taking their masks off in a large crowd so they can share a drink from a communal bottle of champagne being passed around by total strangers.

From singing to dancing in the street, President-elect Joe Biden's victory over President Donald Trump sparked celebrations all across the United States. https://t.co/zvkL0igSZW pic.twitter.com/dxRZcMYr8J

You would think that Dr. Megan Ranney would be wildly condemning these Biden super spreader celebrations, right? After all, she’s a very serious doctor and totally not a political hack masquerading as a public health expert.
What say you Doc?
Ppl are asking about the #covid19 risk from the spontaneous celebrations in the streets: They are masked. It's outdoors. So they are safe.

“Go celebrate outdoors!”
“They are safe.”
- The fact that she says you should be celebrating a Biden win gives away the fact that everything she says and does is politically motivated
- She doesn’t care if COVID spreads because she knows that COVID is not nearly the threat she’s been pretending it was for the last 8 months
- Masks may slightly prevent the spread of the virus, but by telling people they are safe while wearing one doctors are encouraging people to gather in groups by giving them a false sense of security
Not the first time she’s urged large mobs of people to gather together during a “pandemic.”
Let's mitigate the risks of both, *and* recognize why protests are necessary.
— Megan Ranney MD MPH 🗽 (@meganranney) June 8, 2020
To be clear, she doesn’t want people to stop protesting because you can’t spread the virus when you protest, she just wants the cops to stop arresting people because it only spreads in jail.
Hopefully, the fact that they are outside will reduce spread during protests. As will mask-wearing by many.
It is the arrests and jailing (close quarters, no ventilation) that has many of us worried 🙁 as per @tmprowell

She got called out for this obvious hypocrisy and quickly changed her tune.
Ok folks. New pics make me worried.
Let me be clear: outdoor celebration CAN be safe but some distance between people needs to be maintained.
Or else we risk throwing gasoline on the existing #covid19 fire.

Oh right, you can remain socially distanced in a mob in Brooklyn. That’s a thing. But as long as you have a mask on you should be safe. Nothing gets through the diaper on your face. Except for the fact that spikes are occurring in places that have the strictest mask mandates.
You know who never had a mask mandate? Sweden. A country with a population of over 10 million, in which 82% of their residents live in urban areas. What happened with them?
Oh, they basically beat the virus already. So while every developed country on earth right now (including Sweden) is having “spikes” in cases, they’re the only country that isn’t seeing a corresponding increase in deaths. Italy:
Oh no, look at all those cases!! How many people are dying?
In other words, Sweden took it on the chin in April because they didn’t do anything to lockdown the country, everyone got COVID, most beat it, and now cases don’t matter anymore because they’ve achieved herd immunity. Yet the response from medical “experts” like Dr. Ranney is that we should wear masks and lock down more, since it’s worked out brilliantly thus far.
My state is one of 2 in the country to be reporting a decrease in #covid19 cases.

Wouldn’t want to use a plan that, ya know, works.
She also wants to keep schools closed.
I am worried.
I am a huge proponent of in-person schooling.
But at some point (not well-determined by the science), the # of kids & staff bringing #COVID19 INTO the schools, will be too high to keep schools open.
I wish we'd prioritize the kids😐🎒https://t.co/wQw88n4QpM

While whining about the gender pay gap because she has to stay home and help her kids learn on a computer.
I have spent the last hour standing next to my 2 kids while they do their distance learning days, troubleshooting various tech platforms.
The teachers are doing an incredible job.
But I have now lost an hour of my workday.
*i am watching the gender gap grow in real time*

These people are frauds and charlatans. None of this has ever been about science, and none of these people are experts. Their policy of lock downs and masks has gotten thousands of people killed, harmed children, destroyed a $20 trillion economy, and now they want to double down on their failed policy while simultaneously encouraging mass gatherings in celebration of an election that still has not legally been decided. Stop listening to them.
