On Saturday, New York City reportedly has zero coronavirus deaths, which led former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to celebrate this way:
From the epicenter to zero deaths. Short term sacrifice saves lives!!! https://t.co/iHJktiPX5p

Er, yeah, who wants to tell her?
Dear God, this may be the worst victory lap of them all.
'SACRIFICE FOR THE GREATER GOOD!'
Age>75, 665 deaths per 100k
About 30 children have died, and hundreds have viral sequelae.

Yeah, that “short term sacrifice” didn’t really save a lot of lives…
More people died with coronavirus in New York City (population 8 million) than Texas (29 mil), Florida (21 mil), California (39 mil) and Georgia (11 mil) … combined. https://t.co/8CLb81l8u3

NY infected the rest of the country – they are responsible for 1/3 of all COVID deaths and Cuomo’s mandate killed 6k elderly people.

Jarrett’s spiking of that particular ball is something else:
"Short term sacrifices" is an odd way to describe the deaths of thousands & thousands, many of them elderly who were the victims of terrible policy. https://t.co/jKovSVaXJu

Shes completely insane. Shes living in a world where New York didnt have the highest death rate in the country and it just a minor inconvenience.

Short term sacrifice. Disgusting.

Obviously it depends on what your definition of “short term sacrifice” is.
New York has had 32,029 virus deaths
New York ran out of vulnerable to die. https://t.co/vinwHVyYPP

You don't do numbers very well do you?
NYC with a population of 8 million people has 7 times the number of COVID deaths as the entire population of Texas https://t.co/jB6HIjx5y0

Tens of thousands is a “short term sacrifice” https://t.co/OLcyTx6NrA
