    There is never a right time or right way to do the wrong thing. In the COVID-19 scenario, contact tracing is technically wrong, financially wrong, and morally wrong.

    Contact tracing is technically wrong, as it may be an effective tool to trace slow moving deadly viruses such as Ebola or Tuberculosis, but not for a fast-moving virus with a low death rate that is primarily spread by asymptomatic people.

    Contact tracing, for COVID-19, is a colossal waste of money which could be better spent on resources to protect the elderly and immune-compromised populations that are the most affected.

    Contact tracing will shred our constitutional rights to privacy.

    Arizona must stop contact tracing and change course by adopting new policies consistent with the facts as we now know them; COVID-19 death rate is much less than the first suggested 3-7%, it primarily affects seniors and immune-compromised, not equally across the full population. 

    Going forward, Arizona must immediately remove all business operating restrictions, continue to focus attention on hot spots and congregate living situations, and trust Arizonans to act responsibility to protect themselves and their neighbor.

    Why refer to California to compare gov guidence and compare CDC Results. Lies and corrupt agency.



  4. Marta Alexander on December 7, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    Hard to trust him after he mislead us on available hospital beds. That was when I stopped watching his afternoon press conferences. What is the point if it isn’t truthful. Now I just check for new rules only.



  5. Cloud 7k on December 7, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    If hospitals werent out there skewing the data on actual covid deaths for more money then we would have had a better grasp on the situations before we saw drops in cases (Accurate data collection vs grossly false collection) we wouldnt have seen a drop and would have continued safer practices.

    Governor Ducebag! What a moron!

    no you don’t make law, you Governor don’t have the authority to disassemble the Constitution. your positive cases increased because you and your kind changed the parameters to label the recently deceased and patients as covid related. the world is back in school and back to work. either you are ignoring the facts or you’re conspiring with others who are exceeding their authority. shame on you and those around you. I and everyone I know will not support you in the future elections deciding our public servants, you are a servant not a king.

    COVID & THE COMING VACCINE

    In 2017, right after Trump took over, Anthony Fauci said, "There is NO QUESTION there is going to be a challenge for the coming administration in the arena of infectious diseases. There will be a SURPRISE OUTBREAK. There’s NO DOUBT in anyone’s mind about this." The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 was created in the BioSafety Lab Level 4 in Wuhan, which received millions of dollars from Anthony Fauci.

    True story.

    Even the fact checkers agree…

    Thousands of medical doctors call the pandemic a "Global Crime", and a "World Dictatorship with a sanitary excuse". However, part of the top down control strategy has been extreme censoring of every single voice from doctors, scientists or other experts that criticize what is going on. Which is why you don’t get to hear about the 500-strong "Doctors for Information" in Germany or the 600 Spanish "Doctors for Truth" who are protesting about the massive misinformation in the mainstream media – urging doctors, the media and political authorities to Stop this criminal operation by spreading the truth.

    Dr. Carrie Madej studied DNA and vaccines for decades and says the plan is to use the Covid-19 vaccine to start the process of transhumanism: reprogramming the human DNA.

    Another thing they don’t tell you in the propaganda media is that a testing method FOR COVID-19 was patented in 2015 by Richard Rothschild – four years before the disease existed… BTW, Congress ‘legalized’ and funded Propaganda Against the American People in 2012 which effectively nullified the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which explicitly forbids information and psychological operations aimed at influencing U.S. public opinion. The State Department and Pentagon can now go beyond manipulating mainstream media outlets and directly disseminate campaigns of misinformation to the U.S. public.

    If you’re new to being Awake and still trying to figure out the pieces of the puzzle, StopWorldControl.com has made a timeline summary of the Covids Plandemic that show the systematic execution of this Global Conspiracy.

    MASKS DON’T WORK PEOPLE!! THEY ARE MARGINAL AT BEST!! THE NEW REPORTS ARE OUT. I’M JUST SAYING. LATER!



  16. MAGIC IVY on December 7, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    We are the only country not sending our kids to school, which is backed by Demonrats. Masks don’t work Ducey! It’s obvious



  17. Michelle D Williams on December 7, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    I didn’t vote for Gov Ducey. I feel like he’s trying his best cares about the state of AZ, we can’t say that about Trump.🇺🇸🇵🇷💃🏻🖤



  18. Sam Hall on December 7, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    The cases are going up because we now understand how severe is was, as a result of the testing drive-thru’s. The numbers will go down slowly and over a period of 2-3 months. That is… until the virus comes back in late fall. What we see NOW, in numbers, is only a reflection of how bad this pandemic has been in a FIRST WAVE. Think about the 1918 Spanish Flu’s A/H1N1 cases. Were looking at 500 Million cases or 45% of the world population with 6% Fatality or 50 million deaths. Now fast forward to 2020… and international travel. If you take those percentages, applying them to today, you now get 250 million deaths and 4.6 billion cases worldwide. Thats quite a bit. Better wear that mask in case it does happen. It was law in 1918. Ironically, that flu ended in April of 1920. 

    Don’t be scared, you should really read this.. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-commemoration/pandemic-timeline-1918.htm



  19. Ric_The_Fish on December 7, 2020 at 9:53 pm

  21. Rickesh Lal on December 7, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Don’t worry, TRUMP will take care of Arizona. He claim this would be gone by summer and we didn’t need a mask.
