Gov. Newsom’s Weird Press Conference; Admits Public Health Director Dr. Sonia Angell Was SJW Hiring
Monday morning Californians woke up to the news that Gov. Gavin Newsom’s appointed Public Health Director resigned, following the news last week of the epic IT data failure that resulted in the supposed undercounting of COVID-19 cases.
Dr. Sonia Angell was only in the position less than a year before she announced her resignation in an email Sunday to her staff. On Monday, despite being asked by several reporters via phone, Newsom would not disclose if he terminated Angell’s employment, but it was clearly obvious that her departure was related to the data “glitch,” and more likely to overall incompetence.
What was so odd is that Gov. Newsom gave an upbeat press conference last Monday Aug. 3, and announced that COVID cases in the state had declined by 21%. The very next day, Newsom was absent from the podium and Dr. Mark Ghaly, California Health and Human Services Agency Secretary, said that the governor’s good news of the 21% decline in COVID “cases” was wrong due to case undercount because of a data “glitch” of the backlogged cases.
