… Blacks and Hispanics have higher percentage to become infected with Covid. Or. is it because of political leadership policies of either the Democrat or Republic politicians?

Today’s Chicago Tribune headline article titled: So, the hospital just stays fuller, longer, reported:

“Space in hospitals is low as patients flood in and workers burn out.”

An ABC article about the latest increase in Covid in Chicago stated:

“About 40% of the country is unvaccinated.”

 “For the unvaccinated, you’re looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb to this conundrum.

King Solomon

When a king sits on his throne to judge, he winnows out all evil with his eyes. (Proverb 20:8)

A wise king winnows the wicked, and drives the threshing wheel over them.   Proverbs 20:26
 
Excerpt If a leader of a nation is wise – he will know that leaving the wicked alone to do what they want will ultimately be very bad for that nation.  To do otherwise is to leave a group of people who have no regard for law or for any kind of self-restraint for the good of others around them.  The wicked do not care if their actions cause problems and suffering for others – they just have a will to do what they want to do.  This is why we the king is told that he needs to winnow the wicked and drive a threshing wheel over them.

What’s My Point?

Proverb 20:8 may be interpreted that a wise king should use his or her eyes to winnow out evil in his kingdom. Covid can be interpreted to be evil because it can cause suffering and death.

Proverb 20: 26 may be interpreted President Biden’s judgement as wise to mandate employers and government to be vaccinated for the reasons explained in the Excerpt.

My point is to focus on the eyes wisdom advice and use modern contemporty scientific methods to determine if the present Democrat administration in power in Washington eyes needed to open up to what the statistics reveal about the source of evil Covid being spread in the USA. Perhaps, because of their failure to “enforce all the laws?”

In My Opinion

If we winnow the following statistics of percentage of who is being affected with Covid, perhaps we need to judge the present politicians in power who upon entering into their elected offices vow to “uphold the laws…”.

For example, we know covid is communicable and spread by contact. The present laws require those affected to be quarantined so as not to spread the virus to others.

Which leads to the conundrum and proverbs wisdom advices.

 Is Covid race bias or are US immigration and travelers’ entry laws not being enforces allowed the virus variants to continue to spread in the USA by the present politicians in power who took a vow to enforce the laws?

You Discern  

Read the statistics in the link below keeping in mind that in the USA vaccinations are free to anyone regardless of race or income and people living in higher density urban areas along with colder climates will add to the risk factors in the charts below because covid spread more readily indoors.

Note the disparities of percentages by population compared compared to percentages by race.

You Decide

Is the virus continued virus variants being spread because of the choice of people not to be vaccinated?

Or, is the politician and party now in power we voted eyes wise and winnowing, and adhering to their vows in office according to the above ancient proverbial advices to prevent the entry and spread of Covid into the USA?
