    Half your government spent 4 years trying to impeach. Maybe should've governed instead?

    At the very least you could test the patients, sick staff, and sick visitors.
    Why you haven't is a mystery to me.

    Want to know where the virus came from?

    MERS (Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome coronavirus) was a newly emerged beta coronavirus that was first found in a patient from Saudi Arabia.

    Since the 2012 MERS outbreak to 20 /01/2020 there have been 2506 reported cases with 862 deaths.

    A DEATH RATE OF 37%.

    Dr Zaki had obtained a sample from the ‘ground
    zero’ Saudi patients’ lungs in June and was the first to identify the previously unknown type of coronavirus.

    Dr Zaki sent a sample of the virus to DR Fouchier, a leading virologist at the Erasmus Medical Center (EMC) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

    Dr Frank Plummer (Scientific Director at Canada’s National Laboratory in Winnipeg) says that the lab obtained the virus from Ron Fouchier and it arrived on 4 May 2013.

    Dr Plummer was working on a coronavirus (HIV) vaccine and said the lab was growing stocks for
    test use and also planned to see which animals could be infected with the virus.

    (Chinese Bio-warfare agent) Dr Xiangguo Qiu was head of the vaccine Development and antiviral Therapies Section in the Special Pathogens Program at Canada’s National Laboratory when she stole samples of Dr Plummer’s virus and transported them, using her Chinese research team members, to the Wuhan Biosecurity Center in China where it is
    believed to have been weaponized and leaked.

    The Wuhan Biosafe Laboratory is located 20 miles from the Huanan seafood market, the epicenter of the corona virus outbreak.

    Dr Qiu had made at least five trips to the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory during the 2017 and 2018 school year.

    On 10 December 2019 Zaosong Zheng, 30, a Chinese National was arrested at Boston’s Logan
    International Airport and charged with attempting to smuggle 21 vials of biological research to China.

     On  28 January 2020, Dr Charles Lieber, 60, Chair of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University and two Chinese nationals were charged in aiding the Peoples Republic of China.

    Dr Plummer recently published study by Indian scientists (1 February 2020) that found HIV-like injections in Wuhan Coronavirus – the key that made the jump to people possible.

    The study found 4 new AIDS like insertions in the Coronavirus which
    were absent from other Coronaviruses. This finding the study states is “unlikely to be fortuitous in nature”, meaning that it is not a naturally occurring phenomenon.

    We are currently witnessing a major epidemic caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The evolution of 2019-nCoV remains elusive. We found 4 insertions in the spike
    glycoprotein (S) which are unique to the 2019-nCoV and are not present in other
    coronaviruses. Importantly, amino acid residues in all the 4 inserts have
    identity or similarity to those in the HIV-1 gp120 or HIV-1 Gag.

    Dr Plummer who was central to the coronavirus investigations was presumed murdered on 4 February
    2020 in Africa.

    These Chinese nationalists were part of the Thousands Talent Plan or the Thousand Talents Program established in 2008 by the Chinese Central Government to recognise and recruit leading international experts in scientific research, innovation, and entrepreneurship – in other words to steal US technology.

    Sad for the Life Center families, residents and employees, and visitors. When you hear about the people still coming and going and visitors that haven't been contacted, you can be assured the government is allowing it to spread.

    here's how fast:

    Two other facilities in the Seattle area have had one resident from each taken to the hospital with the coronavirus. Hopefully they won't end up like the Life Care Center. The facilities are Ida Culver House Ravenna and Issaquah Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.

    Sad to hear about the fate of the elderly residents of Life Care Center. I feel for their families. Don't let this happen again to another nursing home or assisted living facility for the elders. It's a given. COVID-19 will always win.

    Here's some sobering statistics coming from Italy regarding their own battle against COVID-19:

    -SOME SOBERING STATISTICS FROM ITALY:

    Percentage of deaths by age group:

    90+ years old: 6% of deaths

    80 – 89 years old: 42% of deaths

    70 – 79 years old: 35% of deaths

    60 – 69 years old: 16% of deaths

    The country has one of the world's oldest populations.

    – Among the 5,061 active cases, 3,218 (55%) are hospitalized, 567 of which (representing 11% of active cases) are in intensive care

    – Among the 822 closed cases, 589 (72%) have recovered, 233 (28%) have died.

    – The national health institute said the average age of those who have died was 81, with the majority suffering from underlying health problems. An estimated 72% of all those who have died were men. According to government data, 4.25% of individuals confirmed to have the coronavirus in Italy have died, the highest rate in the world.

    The arrogance of our country is going to be our down fall. There are still people who believe 1. This is a joke, and 2. That could never happen here in America. Wake up people. They are wanting it to spread. This is my opinion only but the one way to contain this is to have every person in America yo shelter in place for a month. This will never happen because the government enjoys the money. It is going to get bad really fast and the measures that our first responders are not adequate to be safe.

    If they would wear the hazmat suits for airborne diseases then the workers wouldn't get sick. This is an Airborne disease. Hangs in the air and moves. That is why it can go from King to Pierce to Grant country without anyone having had to visit anyone who has the virus or been around someone who came in contact with another. Look at what the people in other countries wear!
