Oregon Health Official Dressed as Clown While Reviewing Coronavirus Death Toll

Oregon Health Official Dressed as Clown While Reviewing Coronavirus Death Toll

If public health officials aren’t taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously, why should I? Why should any of us?

Just in time for Halloween comes news that an Oregon public health official dressed as a clown while reviewing COVID-19 death tolls and related coronavirus infection information.

Claire Poche, a senior official of the Oregon Health Authority, wore a red tie, polka dot shirt, bright yellow pants, and a full face of clown makeup during her video presentation.

“As of today, there have been 38,160 cases of COVID-19 in Oregon, with 390 new cases being reported today,” announced the harlequin impersonator. “Sadly, we are also reporting three deaths today, bringing the statewide total for COVID-19-related deaths to 608,” she somberly continued in heavy contrast to her attire.

Without addressing her attire, she passed the floor to fellow health advisor Shimi Sharief, who donned an anthropomorphic onesie. According to Sharief, the costume was inspired by the Japanese anime “My Neighbor Totoro.”

Sharief clarified the purpose of the costumes, stating that despite the pandemic “reshaping” Halloween, the popular holiday could “still be spooky and fun.” The announcement, however, is two weeks old, having been recorded on October 14th and only gaining widespread attention since Tuesday, making the choice of attire even more puzzling.

The presentation was met with a less than amused reception on social media.

Meanwhile, Americans have serious concerns as we enter into the holiday season. Many people are beginning to consider stockpiling toilet paper and cleaning products, as they are worried about more restrictions.

As winter encroaches, more than half of U.S. consumers are considering replenishing their assortment of goods and essential products that they had originally stockpiled during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year, according to new research from data-driven technology-enabled services company Inmar Intelligence.

When the pandemic hit the U.S. in March, 64% percent of shoppers created a stockpile of products as a result, according to Inmar.

Now, roughly 57% of shoppers are considering restocking due to growing fears of a “potential second wave of COVID-19,” which could lead to another round of bare store shelves.

Business owners in Oregon and other states and cities in lockdown are suffering. For example, Salem, Massachusetts (which gets much tourism business at this time of year), is nearly shut down due to state restrictions.

This year, all city-backed events have been canceled. Attractions, shops, and restaurants—already at limited capacity—require advance tickets and reservations to gain entry. Without such planning, city officials suggest visitors postpone their trips until next year.

On Oct. 21, Mayor Kim Driscoll announced further safety precautions including a mandatory 8 p.m. closure on Oct. 30 and 31 for all downtown businesses. Trains from Boston won’t stop at Salem during certain hours Oct. 30–Nov. 1.

Parents around the country are worried about how to handle Halloween amid local coronavirus rules. My best friend and I are bagging candy, handing it out wearing gloves and donning masks…in an attempt to salvage fun holiday memories for the neighborhood children.

I talked about socially-distanced Halloween measures during the Canto Talk show today, as well as a review of the current election cycle.

So, If public health officials aren’t taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously, why should I? Why should any of us?

WOW!

That new make-up for Kamala does more for her than her face-lift and botox!!!!

What???

That’s not Kamala?

Looks like Kamala’s twin sister!

It’s been a long, long, long, long year so far.

Bozo Eruption!

So, at least there was a reason for the costume – they were having a dress-up day at work. I get the couple of weeks early thing.

But, seriously, you didn’t think “Hey, maybe we should do the video at the end of the day after we’ve changed out of our costumes” or “Hey, maybe we should change, record, then change back”? Or is it that you just know that it’s all theater and really don’t care as long as the serfs cower in their hovels at your words of doom?

    Or, a thought of “Hey, Bob The White Guy, who’s afraid to dress up as anything lest we get him fired for appropriation, racism or sexism, could do it this week”?

      I think there might be a bit too much truthiness in the report if this Bob, the white guy, did it.

      At least they are finally dressing up in Salem the way most of the voters in this state see them at this point.

      Where’s Kate? Who cares, let her stay lost.

“Sadly, we are also reporting three deaths today, bringing the statewide total for COVID-19-related deaths to 608,”
At the very least, she could have been a “sad clown.”

Pardon my French…What a F**king moron…

How does anyone support this?? This is a slap to the families that lost someone and it’s not very becoming of a professional.

Dr. Kelly Liberty just reported that the government will NOT be to reporting the regular influenza statistics for the past year. Considering how important it is to get good data in breaking out the national mortality when studying the trends from year to year, the only reason they would withhold this information is because they are fraudulent.

We already know that with all of the incentives to doctors and hospitals to attribute as many deaths as possible to the Wuhan flu, the official mortality numbers are grossly over-stated. Providing the influenza deaths would provide a big clue about how many of those were lumped in with Wuhan. Now they will be lumped together. The new and improved modern science… social (communist) science

    I believe that the ridiculous covid numbers being reported include flu cases, because they need the narrative to justify keeping lockdowns and mask mandates in place despite increasing opposition to them.

I will wear my mask, because I am not interested in making life miserable for some poor schlub working for a store.

I will rely on drugs to keep me safe.

A daily multivitamin with a small amount of zinc and selenium, C, 1g and D 5,000 or 10,000 IU alternating (to average about 7,000 IU).

If I go to a big event, 500mg Quercetin and 95mg zinc two days before, the day of, and two days after, to 1) clear my system of virus I don’t know about, and 2) protect me from exposure.

If I get a sniffle, 5 days 500 mg Quercetin, 95mg zinc, if I don’t show vast improvement by day 3, I call my Dr.

This is just basic, over-the-counter control of viral replication for a person with an impaired immune system, as we learned from dealing with HIV. If you get it early, you don’t need a silver bullet, or heroic measures.

I intend to fly completely under the radar.

    How does your not wearing a mask make said schlub’s life miserable? That’s his employer’s fault (and possibly the fault of whatever government agency mandated mask wearing).

Honk honk!

I expect we LA County residents to enthusiastically conform with virus the restrictions this Halloween as we did during the Fourth of July celebrations. Expect Not-A-Doctor Barbara Ferrer to suffer an aneurysm this time. We can only hope.

“My best friend and I are bagging candy, handing it out wearing gloves and donning masks…in an attempt to salvage fun holiday memories for the neighborhood children.”

HAHAHA!!!

Good little sheep. Do what your lessers order you to do, even though it’s all just control. Just keep ignoring the real science on all of your “precautions”.

Good little sheep.

This is by no means the first eccentric and socially inadept public health official we have been seen of late. The occupation seems to be full of these failed doctors.

Be grateful she wasn’t speaking in Klingon… remember Oregon considering translating all legal notices into Klingon? If they did the Grays would be upset.

She would look better with a mask mandate.

Funny…I don’t remember a clown in Tonari no Totoro….

Boy, Pelosi sure over did it with her makeup.

Well, I have to give the benefit of the doubt…
As it is Halloween time.
But, I would Never have done this.

I am reminded of a certain scene from the movie ‘Deliverance’!
This ‘Porker’ would fit right in!

But..it wasn’t Halloween. This was a photo from September????

Clowns can be evil.
