The latest virus grift has come to Harris County. Conversations began yesterday in Commissioners Court over the much anticipated monkeypox virus which has been declared a Public Health Emergency in New York City and San Francisco. Barbie Robinson, the Harris Health head has requested $1.7 million for the new Monkeypox task force strategy.
The $1.7 million is supposed to cover a new staff of 39 people over a 3 month period, which breaks down to:
$1,131,085/3= $373,695 a month
$373,695/39 people= $9,581.92 per staff member a month.
$2,395.48 per one staff member a week
Does this seem like a lot of money for an employee to make per week regarding:
Hotline operators, administering vaccines, epidemiology support, and ‘support staff’
The PPE comes out to be $500k which seems to be a bit steep with all the supplies that the County should have with the purchases they made over the period of covid.
Well of course this seems reasonable for an ailment affecting .003% of the population!
Thank you for reporting this and staying on top of it. What a boondogle. I can’t believe that the majority of the population falls for this nonsense constantly and continually
Thank you for being a voice of reason. You are so young and wise, such a rare gem and we are very blessed to have you in Harris county
