The commissioners tried to meet Tuesday to address the COVID-19 pandemic, but were met with fierce resistance from anti-mask protesters, the Idaho Statesman reported. The anti-maskers gathered outside the public health building in downtown Boise and at commissioners’ houses around the city, according to a press release from Boise police.
Meanwhile there is very good reason to enforce mask-wearing and increase restrictions:
Idaho doctors have warned state leaders that they’re so overwhelmed by COVID cases that they could soon be forced to let some people die because they simply don’t have the resources to care for all patients. More than 285,000 people in the U.S. have died from COVID-19, according to Johns Hopkins data. More than 1,000 of those people have been in Idaho.
It is amazing that there is this much politicized energy around mask-wearing. These people are not protesting anything that matters – not climate change, not mass unemployment or government inaction on it, not wealth inequality and its corrosive effects on society… No, they are protesting a simple piece of cloth over the face that can save thousands and thousands of lives.
