are now 53 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in the United States,
the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.
These include 36 people who were aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship, three people repatriated from China and 14 US cases.
reflects an increase in 18 cases from Friday, all among Diamond
Princess passengers. At the time, CDC officials said that there were
additional passengers who had tested positive for the virus in Japan and
would likely be added to the official US count once those test results
had been adjudicated.
The 14 US cases include eight in California, one in Massachusetts, one in Washington state, one in Arizona, two in Illinois and one in Wisconsin. Among these cases, there are two instances of person-to-person transmission, one in Illinois and one in California.
While this virus is contagious its still not much of a threat. Consider forty thousand people die in the U.S. every year and tens of millions come down with the flu I don’t see the threat yet. Yes we need to be vigilant, yes we need to be proactive but not stupid crazy. Take precautions just like every year with the flu.
A retired New York City police officer says he got punched in the face at a Tennessee bar, all because he was wearing a birthday hat and shirt with Trump-like slogans.
Daniel Sprague of Staten Island said he and his wife were celebrating his 50th birthday in Nashville and he was wearing a hat that said “Make Fifty Great Again” and a shirt that said “Making America Great since 1970.”
But suddenly, he told Nashville’s WSMV-TV, a woman approached him and took a swing, striking him in the face before fleeing.
They seem to say that we need to vote this election because its going to be the most important vote in history. They have said it so much it’s old. It makes me tune it out. Is it important? Sure it is but just quit saying it is. Instead explain that the vote coming up is going to change how Americans are going to be treated by the people we elect. Explain how Socialism really works and not what it is taught in schools and colleges. Tell the people how America has made a difference in the world.
Will the next election mean much? Sure, but ask yourself this. Which party is better for you. Which party is better for your future and the future of you kids and grand kids. Will your decedents look back and say parents, grand parents, great great grand parents were just thinking of themselves or will they say my parents made sure we had a future.
The President had a good night last night. He touched on a lot of his accomplishments that is working for every American. He highlighted a lot of stark differences between the parties. But in the end I believe he would be willing to work with the Democrats if they would put forth some effort.
The President will be acquitted by the Senate today. But he will still have to fight the Democrats in Congress. They have been taken over by the Socialist and their playbook is anarchy. The President will keep fighting though and he will keep making progress. The Democrats say he is shredding and tearing up the Constitution. Little do they understand, he is using the Constitution to beat them. Its hard to fathom how they can twist something that is so clearly written. Not to mention that there is tons of documents that clearly illustrate what the framers intended.
The latest of this writing is a new bird flu that has sprung up in the Hunan Province. The Coronavirus that sprang up in December was downplayed by the China Government and didn’t get the attention it deserved until January the 20th. China’s African swine fever outbreak that sweep their country last year devastated their pig population by half. That is somewhere near 20 million tons. The price of pork has skyrocketed if you can find it. They are still finding it in places so that is not over yet. Then there was the SARS pandemic that was back in 2003. So why are all these viruses seem to originate in China? In China, at least 304 people have died and 14,380 people have been infected with the Coronavirus across the country, according to the government on Saturday.
Major countries are shutting down their borders to China. China is quarantining major cites. To the tune of somewhere close to 40 million people total. Hong Kong just announced that Nurses in Hong Kong are threatening to go on strike if the city doesn’t shut its border with mainland China. Some nurses have already engaged in unauthorized sickouts to protest what they say is a lack of action by Hong Kong officials. Carrie Lam, the chief executive of Hong Kong, this week also ordered all ferry service to China to be halted, but she stopped short of fully closing the border.
Americans coming back from China are now being quarantined in 8 air force bases in the United States. They will be at one of them for 2 weeks to see if they come down with it. So far I have seen reports that say there are 8 cases in the United States.
To date 24 countries are showing cases of the Coronavirus.
