COLUMBUS, Ohio - Governor Mike DeWine gave the order for more businesses, including 181 BMV locations, to close at the end of the business day on Wednesday to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The governor says he’s taking further action to help control how fast the virus spreads. Barbershops, beauty salons, hair and nail salons, tattoo parlors and 181 BMV locations have all been ordered to close by the end of business on Wednesday, March 18.(Snip)78,000 people have applied for unemployment in Ohio this week alone, but workers at barbershops and salons do not qualify for unemployment, said Lt. Governor Jon Husted.

Comments:

An effort is being made to permit employees of barbershops and hair salons to file for unemployment. The General Assembly is being asked to allow a grace period for individuals unable to renew their licenses during the closures as well as asking law enforcement to not write tickets for people with expired licenses during the closures. Dr. Amy Acton, Director, Ohio Department of Health (worked on 2008 Obama presidential campaign; managed non-profit fundraising grants for PlannedParenthood of GreaterOhio and the NARALPro-Choice Foundation) said “testing is being limited to those already in the hospital, those who are sickest, and those most at risk.”

There will be a loss of revenue to the state due to fewer in-state transactions subject to Ohio's sales tax. I do hope the Ohio legislature does not use this loss as an excuse to increase the sales tax rate.

DeWine is a teetotaler but now drunk on power. Worse, he's high from media adulation as those people who don't have to worry about being productive write some rather embarrassing hagiographies (eg J Williams of the Cincinnati Enquirer). I'm sorry that the governor has experience personal/family tragedy in his life but the next step seems to be ordering the wind to stop and the sun to go dark. Enough with the daily flood of orders.

There are now 88 confirmed cases in 19 Ohio counties. There are eight in Butler County, but none in Hamilton, Warren, Clermont, Brown, Adams, Highland or Clinton counties. Now think about this. As a comparison "There have been 6,631 influenza-related hospitalizations in Ohio since the beginning of flu season in October". Were any businesses forced to close, did anybody lose their jobs over this, DID ANYBODY PANIC, NO. This is a pattern all over the country and yet we have destroyed our economy and people’s lives. Never let a crisis go to waste, thank you democrats. Get it yet.

According to the CDC......... The number of coronavirus cases confirmed in the US as a percent of the number of flu cases confirmed in the US now stand at 4.2% (9,464/222,522). The percent of deaths from the coronavirus to deaths from the flu is 0.7% (155/22,000). In other words the normal flu( flu virus that is with us every flu season) has killed 22,000 Americans since 9/19 compared to 155 deaths from the coronavirus in the same time period. Yes, the world has gone mad.

Thank you, #11. I have lived in many states, and all used Department of Motor Vehicles. I guess Ohio is different. I was trying to decide if it was their state-run liquor stores.....Beverage.....something....something. So, now you can't even register your car. That can be pretty 'unhandy'.

Different names for different states. Like some have Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and some have Driving Under the Influence (DUI), what each place calls their vehicle and driver licensing agency varies. CA has DMV, here Ohio has BMV, I recall Texas had DPS (Department of Public Safety) 35 years ago. Hard to tell where the truth is in all this politicized garbage dump. Either way, it is poised to wreck the economy (placing PDJT's reelection at risk), and could even slide us closer to Socialism (the 'stimulus' bill is tailor-made for it). Lord, have mercy.

Yesterday I blogged that Wuhan coronavirus has hampered former Vice President Joe Biden’s fundraising and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). It’s hard for both to compete against President Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee since both are swimming are cash. The DNC received a decent boost from billionaire former candidate Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg can transfer $18 million to the DNC since it will come from his campaign. As a citizen, Bloomberg could only donate hundreds of thousands of dollars. Quite a difference!

By the way, don’t you like the fact that Trump did not include the U.K. because they’re getting out of the European Union — hee-hee-hee-hee — Brexit, don’t you know. So Democrats oppose travel ban. A No Ban Act has been introduced by representative Judy Chu, Democrat, California, cosponsored by 219 House Democrats. The bill will roll back all of Trump’s travel restrictions and it will require that Trump only issue a restriction when required to address a compelling government interest.

Trump has said he uses the phrase "Chinese virus" for accuracy purposes.
