Coronavirus, Mike Pence and slaughterhouses


This 27 June 2020 cartoon video from the USA says about itself:

Claytoonz, Episode 940, Here Comes The Worm

Watch me draw Mike Pence as a big worm.

Read the cartoon and blog here.

Mike Pence cartoon

The cartoon is about United States Vice President Mike Pence.

There is, however, a big difference between Pence and worms. Worms do very good work for soil environments.

Dutch NOS radio reports today (translated):

U.S. Vice President Pence has canceled a number of campaign meetings in Florida and Alabama over the next week. The reason is the new wave of coronavirus infections in these and other states. …

Eg, Florida and Alabama, but also, eg, Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma, are experiencing a sharp increase in the number of coronavirus infections. In a number of states, it has been decided to tighten the measures again, after earlier easing.

Reuters news agency reported yesterday that the number of identified infections across the US has risen to more than 2.5 million. The increase in the last 24 hours was 45,000 infections, the highest number to date.

So, as Pence cancels election rallies, apparently, he does not believe the propaganda by his boss Donald Trump, his Brazilian crony Bolsonaro, Elon Musk and other billionaires, and the far-right pro-Trump ‘Flu Klux Klan’ that COVID-19 is supposedly ‘just a little flu’.

Well … err … it looks like Pence does not believe that propaganda as far as his own health is concerned.

He does believe it about the health of slaughterhouse staff and other workers.

Mike Pence told slaughterhouse workers:

Show up and do your job.

As for slaughterhouses, they are COVID-19 epicentres; in the USA and in other countries.

This tweet by Gütersloh local authorities in Germany says that the scandal at Tönnies corporation meatpacking plant is not limited to that plant (where at least 1413 workers became infected); that 75 people living around that slaughterhouse, but not working there, have become infected.
