White House sources say COVID-19 lockdown planned for second week of August

Information from sources inside the White House indicate that the Biden administration has solidified its plan to implement another coronavirus lockdown as concern over the delta variant is on the rise. 

Human Events Senior Editor and former Military Intelligence Officer Jack Posobiec tweeted about the impending lockdown saying that it was all but settled:

“White House chatter is that lockdowns for delta variant all but a done deal,” the news editor tweeted. “Virtually all blue states are cooperating with WH / CDC. They’re aiming for late 2nd week of August, per WH official.”

This news comes as reports of infections across the world are causing governments worldwide to increase their COVID-19 protection protocols once again. 

Attempts to suppress the spread of the virus have taken on various forms in Israel, Australia, and Europe, however, the common thread amongst all the nations is the restriction of movements and businesses operation.


According to a report in NPR, the United States has, up to this point, been very different as many businesses are still ramping back up after the last lockdown wreaked havoc on the economy. 

Unfortunately, even the fully vaccinated are not spared potential infection, according to health officials who advise that Americans should once again scale back to avoid spreading the virus.

Portions of Sydney Australia went into a weeklong lockdown late in June with restrictions continuing forward into the rest of the summer. 

Similarly, Israel has fallen back on their mask mandates for those indoors and Portugal has shut down its capital over fears of new cases where the new variant accounts at least seven of every 10 new cases of the virus. 

Americans are, on average, more skeptical about the virus and whether citizens are getting the whole truth about the virus results, effectiveness of the vaccines, and rights of citizens. 

Several responses to Posobiec’s tweet asserted that there might be more nefarious motives at work, including one poster who said the lockdown was scheduled “to coincide with school starting. Btw, they can’t test for Delta variant so you might want to consider how they know they have the Delta variant,” the reply stated. 

Another response claimed that “there are hundreds of studies at this point that demonstrate that there is NO association between lockdowns, reduced mobility and the spread of covid-19. This is pure political theatre, nothing more.”
