Governors Reinstate Lockdowns To Combat Recovering Economy

U.S.—Governors across the country have reinstated lockdowns mere weeks after slowly starting to lift them, citing a “concerning spike” in jobs and the economy.

Worried that the increase in jobs, prosperity, and happiness would hurt them in November, they reacted to the economic upturn quickly, shutting down businesses and locking people back in their homes.

“We can’t let this economic spike continue,” said California Governor Gavin Newsom. “That would go against SCIENCE. The SCIENTISTS say that locking down an entire population is the best way to prevent dangerous economic spikes.”

“Also, we wanted to mention that this message was brought to you by PlumpJack Estate Winery. Use code NEWSOM for 10% off your next tasting!”

The governors noticed that people were happier with their lives, glad they could go back to work and reopen their businesses, and having fun outside. Unable to tolerate this kind of freedom and general satisfaction with life in the age of Trump, they scrambled to lock back down.

“We’re seeing a concerning rise in the number of people disregarding the government and going on with their lives,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “If you’re outside enjoying yourself or contributing to the economy, I’ll get you, my pretty! And your seeds too!”

    There’s going to be a spike in illnesses after this thing due to weak immune systems due to being locked indoors and recycling the same mask germs over a long period.

      Agree. We are also testing more and thereby getting more positives. However, we are seeing a decline in deaths.

      Your point about allowing our natural immune systems to fight this virus is the key point.

        Correct, I’m not a medical professional but as other medical doctors have stated such as ones mentioned in Judy Mikovitz’s “Plandemic” short documentary, staying indoors over long periods will decrease immunity of diseases in general.
