Dem Nashville Mayor, Health Dept Covered Up Data Showing Bars And Restaurants Weren’t Spreading COVID-19; Covid whistleblower praised pandemic response before leaving WH, and other C-Virus Updates

Nashville Mayor, Health Department Covered Up Data Showing Bars And Restaurants Weren’t Spreading COVID-19:
City officials in Nashville are under fire after a thread of emails were released by Fox 17 News on Thursday demonstrating that Mayor John Cooper and Metro Health Department hid the COVID-19 contact tracing results for bars and restaurants from the public.
In June, the city began a contact tracing initiative for certain “coronavirus clusters.” While the tracing results showed that more than a thousand cases of COVID-19 were discovered to be highly transmissible for people on construction sites and in nursing homes, bars and restaurants combined only had 22 cases.
According to emails obtained by the local news station, the mayor’s senior advisor and a health department employee, however, decided not to release the information.
“This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?” health department employee Leslie Waller asked. --->READ MORE HERE
Coronavirus whistleblower praised pandemic response before leaving White House
A former White House coronavirus official praised the “unwavering” work of the president's COVID-19 task force in her departure letter, before accusing President Trump of having a “flat out disregard for human life” and saying the "ongoing response" was "a failure."
In an interview with the Washington Post published on Thursday, Olivia Troye became the first official who worked extensively on the pandemic response to speak out against Trump, saying that his actions cost lives.
“The president’s rhetoric and his own attacks against people in his administration trying to do the work, as well as the promulgation of false narratives and incorrect information of the virus, have made this ongoing response a failure,” she said.
However, White House officials familiar with her work say she did not raise concerns during her time as an adviser and delivered glowing praise when she left.
“For the past six months, it has been an absolute honor working closely with all of you and your staffs, as part of the brain trust that has valiantly faced the challenges of fighting what has been one of the worst pandemics of our generation,” she wrote on July 23, according to the text of her letter obtained by the Washington Examiner. --->READ MORE HERE
