Democrats have begun declaring states of emergency in Democrat-controlled States across America in preparation for a lockdown before the upcoming midterm elections.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) declared a state of emergency over the monkeypox outbreak, granting him extra powers to suspend the rule of law in the state.
Infowars.com reports: Adams said his order will bolster the city’s efforts “to educate, vaccinate, test, and treat as many New Yorkers as possible and ensure a whole-of-government response to this outbreak.”
The order will allow Adams to suspend local laws and implement new health rules.
This comes a day after unelected Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) declared a State Disaster Emergency that will enable the state government to “respond more swiftly” and ramp up vaccination efforts.
Likewise, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) declared a state of emergency for monkeypox on Monday to protect the “LGBTQ+ community.”
“We have seen this virus disproportionately impact the LGBTQ+ community in its initial spread,” Pritzker said in a statement. “In Illinois, we will ensure our LGBTQ+ community has the resources they need to stay safe while ensuring members are not stigmatized as they access critical health care.”
This comes after the city of San Francisco declared a state of emergency over monkeypox on Thursday amid 281 recorded cases.
Nevertheless, Democrats will likely use this outbreak as an opportunity to resurrect universal mail-in ballots ahead of the midterms in November.
