Dr. Celine Gounder, a member of Joe Biden’s COVID-19 Advisory Board, made some statements that should be worrying for ordinary Americans. She had an interview that aired on Friday on Fox Business Network’s “WSJ at Large.” Gounder said that certain types of businesses and home gatherings should be banned because those are the places where the virus gets transmitted.

She said that “places that we know are big contributors to transmission are indoor restaurants, bars, gyms, and also private social gatherings of friends and family in the home.” She added that those places “are really the places we need to target for closures.”

Gounder added that the lockdowns can “be much more targeted about how we tighten up some of our measures. I think of it like a dimmer switch, whereas before we had an on and off light switch. So, we can dial up and dial down in a much more granular fashion.”

The frightening part of her statement is that private home gatherings should also be targeted now. If she will be the one making decisions then she would probably enforce restrictions on how many people can gather inside their homes. She might even require all Americans to wear masks while they are inside their houses.

Many are now afraid about the possibility of a nationwide lockdown should Biden get to the White House. Democrat governors and mayors are eager to participate in such measures that could see the economy of the country ruined. Countless small businesses have already closed shop because of the pandemic. Additional lockdowns could mean more businesses would be forced to go the same route.

With more lockdowns coming, the only businesses that will remain will be the large companies since those are the only ones that can absorb the losses. New York and other Democrat-run states and cities are already enforcing their own restrictions that seek to limit the spread of the virus and kill economic activity at the same time.
