    Can’t they use N95 like filters to cover the vents in each rooms at the nursing center to stop it from coming through the vents?

    My heart aches for these vulnerable elderly individuals and their families at this nursing home in Kirkland. The emotions they are feeling must be overwhelming. They can’t get answers because no one has the answers (including and specifically the government). All the residents and workers need to be tested right now. Their lives depend on it.

    Why is everyone wearing masks and on quarantine overseas and we're just hanging out here in Washington? Are we behind the ball on this?

  • Reply Don Hall March 8, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    The focus should be on the Governor’s office for being completely caught off guard. This virus started in Dec 2019 and he was too busy in his liberal ideas of gun control, global warming hoax and ensuring the right skin colors are in positions. Idiots one and all. You do not deserve this moronic leadership Washington State!

    Does this not mean that there is a 100% death rate in Washington if the situation was considered isolated outbreak? Has there been any recoveries? Are the visitors being tested? What grocery store snd gas stations are near here ? Hello can these people connect the dots?

  • Reply Josey Wilds March 8, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    Cause you won’t close shot down! So who’s fault is it really! Stop blaming society and start blaming your country and governments!!! Nice to see the news ppl still not wearing quarantine gear! Idiots I hope they all get it!! This news brief was a joke the guy couldn’t even answer basic questions, I encourage you to watch that interview he said absolutely nothing new, wasted new time!

    I will pay REAL MONEY for video of professional healthcare workers caring for symptomatic covid19 patients or disinfecting contaminated area with NO MASKS ON!

  • Reply Christian Prepper March 8, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    Don't close schools because teens & infants aren't really dying & many caretakers are grandparents (highest risk group) & kids won't stay home anyway. So it's best to keep them confined at school & mask the teachers!

    Testing will continue to be delayed in the U.S. as long as possible to slow panic & inevitable civil unrest until the 13,000 troops back from Afghanistan.

  • Reply Latoya Matson March 8, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    Put on a fucking mask u idiots!!!!!!!!!! I stocked up before this virus became known and I will be using mine. Wish I would listen to anyone in the govt or the CDC. It'll still spread but do SOMETHING! Your all just hanging out complaining and blaming the govt. Then u have the idiots continuing to go on cruises and blaming the cruise line. You should've taken heed from the other ships under quarantine but u didn't. That's YOUR fault. You all sound like Trump with your lies and excuses and your pissing us off.

  • Reply Whit Ney March 8, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    Have we learned nothing? You cant say theyre being quarentined when they're still sharing air like on the cruise ships…

    *Medications being made in China touched/handled by someone infected? Some medical personnel having been unknowingly in contacted with someone infected.
    So many unanswered questions.

    This virus has just cleaned house!

  • Reply Misa Kataoka March 8, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    Real scare is not patients under control. those employees/workers are all need to be tested, given ID# and contact tracking. Who does not show symptoms (asymptomatic) are spreading the virus unintentionally.

  • Reply Jay Rod March 8, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    The 11 people who died previously should have been tested. Now, they are trying to do tests after death – on folks that have been buried or cremated. This is crazy! The US did not take this seriously, soon enough.

    WHY was a child whose parent is positive for the virus sent to school?

  • Reply JVONROCK March 8, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    Its was detected in a mans stool in Everett. Jan.20th.
    People are more concerned with where we're going to put the quarantined. Dont mix them in hospitals. Separate facilities.

  • Reply Dusty March 8, 2020 at 6:28 pm

    This might be elementary or I'm just seeing things but to me it looks as if the virus incubates and nests near water ways. Does this have anything to do with outbreaks and projections?
    It makes me wonder. I wish I knew more about it, we need to kill this & put it into extinction. I fear it doesn't mutate to infect our children as it is it's near bad as it can get.

    So it's been in the tricities for 6 weeks from people traveling they must be missdiagnosed as having the flu .stay away from the gas stations and fast food places closest to the highways .just sayn.

  • Reply Andrea Gaisser March 8, 2020 at 7:08 pm

    POSSIBLY self quarantining? Have the feds done any contact tracing for the employees and family members? I sure hope this situation is not as out of control as it appears to be. I know it is too late for complete containment, but everything possible needs to be done in order to slow the spread so that our healthcare system does not get overwhelmed. To protect our most vulnerable population we need hospitals with adequate capacity to meet the demand.

    Stop not testing people because you’re too cowardly for the truth to come out about how many people have been infected (and more importantly than that, died) because of your negligence!

  • Reply geeksquad smarty March 8, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    This facility has had 13 people to die from the coronavirus and 11 suspected deaths. This one facility has had more deaths from the Coronavirus than all 50 states. Something nefarious is going on in that facility. The ppl that work in that facility are highly possible carriers of the coronavirus and they're allowed to walk around in the public. Washington you have a problem.

    70 employees of LifeCare are showing symptoms, and they're all just self isolating at home?! Yeah, right! They expect 70 people all to not leave their houses for two weeks without someone tracking them? That area is going to explode with COVID19. And the kid who continued going to the Everette school even though his mom tested positive? What the hell are people thinking? If we keep fumbling every single opportunity to slow this thing down, the government will have no choice but to lockdown like China, Italy, and Japan.

    The doctors in China that died were not old & had no other health problems. Why is this being ignored?

  • Reply Connie Z March 8, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Tonic Water with Quinine helped clear up virus, drink 1/4 cup and using it as chest rub helped reduce chest congestion. Soap wipes clean the nose-mouth area and using mouthwash helps too. A alcohol-free CPC mouthwash is highly recommended.

  • Reply Cathy Anderson March 8, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    There are not 30 Federal officials helping out in the building that is incorrect reporting. They are employees that are now working in staff positions that have been hired consent by local and federal agencies. You're better off watching the actual news conference yourself rather than this interpretation
