    Not sure why that quote was in a bracket with my name on it....not that I disagree that Dems are alarming their base purely for the sake of politics.

    Predictable. No doubt in the nursing home. There are more to come there. 6 people?

    Nursing homes are likely to get almost wiped out if they get one case....especially if a health care worker in the center is the spreader. That's very sad.

    If it was circulating for several weeks unbeknownst to everyone, then we may have already had deaths from it prior to us beginning testing.

    Unsurprisingly, you have taken the bait.

    It is. They close down nursing homes in OH during flu season.

    All the cases in King County were LifeCare nursing home (4) residents, except the one guy who died at the local hospital (the first death). Condolences to their families.

    They haven't said anything about his contacts and who among them might have visited the nursing home and / or China or other centers of infection.

    A week or so ago I heard about a kid who visited the nursing home ,,, then, radio silence, which usually means someone is being protected.

    There was a period before China admitted they had a problem

    NOW the people in King County are going to insist on sheltering the homeless....because they don't want to take up hospital space for people who "need" treatment. o_O

    A group of nursing students recently visited Life Care in Kirkland. An employee also tested positive. A college tech school and 11 other schools were closed yesterday. A whole district is closed today. For people showing symptoms, they are instructed to call their doctor and not go to the emergency rooms.
    Hopefully under an "abundance of caution"
