Tucker Carlson, host of Tucker Carlson tonight, announced on Thursday an alleged cover-up in the mayor’s office of Nashville about the number of coronavirus cases involving bars and restaurants and other alleged cases of politicians who are silent on the “unforgivable” data.
Carlson said a FOX 17 reporter in Nashville had received emails from Democratic Mayor John Cooper’s office “discussing the fact that only a very small number of cases were traced to bars and restaurants in the city.”
As of June 30, bars and restaurants had caused just 22 cases of the virus, compared to more than 1
“Numbers like this can be great news for the city of Nashville. “Bars and restaurants have been suffering there for months under strict COVID restrictions,” he said.

An employee of the Nashville Department of Health reviewed the numbers and wrote an email to the mayor’s office last summer, saying, “This is not going to be made public, is it?” Just information about the town hall? “Carlson explained. ‘Right, not for public consumption,'” a senior councilor at City Hall replied.
“Why are they so afraid to tell us the real numbers? You know the answer, the more data you have about the virus, the more facts, the more science, the less scared you can be,” Carlson said. “And that’s why they always emphasize how many people have died – almost 200,000 – but almost never died.”

“If you knew the details, you might realize that getting a drink at a bar in Nashville or sending your children to school in person poses very little risk to anyone,” he added.
Carlson said that “restrictions and terrible policies” by politicians like Mayor Cooper “do much more harm to this country and its people than the virus itself.”

He said the virus remained as usual: “an insurmountable threat to the elderly and people who are already ill. This does not mean that COVID-19 is not dangerous. Of course, it is … It’s just not dangerous to the vast majority of people who are destroyed by the restrictions of COVID-19, and that’s unforgivable. “
