    On April 23, residents in EvergreenHealth's public hospital and hospice district will vote on a $345 million, 20-year bond that would fund significant improvements to its Kirkland medical center. The 20-year-bond would translate to an average of $0.18 per $1,000 of assessed home value per year, according to a news release from EvergreenHealth. A homeowner with a $700,000 home in the health systems' district, for example, would pay an average of $10.50 per month, totaling $126 per year over the life of the bond.

    Why U.S airport let people from Iran lands in NY. That was very smart move. U.S is dead. And more …. There are many American people which did not tell the truth to the U.S. government when they traveled back to U.S from Wuhan or many others infected countries like Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Korea ….. and now that is the consequence. Right now, there are still many air-flight out from Vietnam to U.S as i know it.

    At this point, people should boost their immunity on their own by adding black seed oil (natural, but powerful anti viral), raw garlic with fresh warm lemon water, daily vitamin, sweet potatoes, healthy protein, fruits and vegetables and follow all recommended health precautions like washing hands frequently, stay home if not feeling well, stay away from people, cough in your elbow, etc. Also check with doctor before taking supplements for drug interaction or allergies. If you do these and happen to get the virus, God willing, your symptoms will be mild and you can get over quickly. The goal is to make yourself an unwilling host to the virus and it finds itself dead on arrival..

    Still very limited testing is available in some states. I know my state isn't ready with testing. There's limited respirators if hospitals get too many infected patients. Trump fired the pandemic response team (https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-fire-pandemic-team/) and Pence in charge instead of medical experts. 😳 Millions of Americans don't have healthcare nor can afford copays and other costs. Many Americans avoid going to hospital when sick because of cost even with insurance. I know some of them. I'd feel safer under a presidential administration that doesn't defund the CDC and puts medical experts in charge. Then there are trump supporters who are dismissing the seriousness of COVID-19. Extended family member is telling others online it's just like the common cold and lysol will protect you. My partner and I are an increased risk and hearing people dismissive of the science of COVID-19 is very concerning. Because they are harming others whether they realize it or not.

    All the docs and nurses wear protective gears
    1922 phone line is created for patients to call if they doubt they might be infected
    National Insurance Card will show all your travel history to alert the docs in the hospital.
    CDC public announcement each hr on TV to warn citizens of Taiwan to be careful

    So far, 41 confirmed cases in Taiwan. All the citizens of Taiwan are working together to fight against this mysterious virus.

    I strongly urge the people around the world and the govts to get prepared

    This information is very important.

    Human coronaviruses can remain infectious on inanimate
    surfaces for up to 9 days. Surface disinfection with 0.1% sodium hypochlorite or 62e71% ethanol significantly reduces coronavirus infectivity on surfaces within 1 min exposure time. We expect a similar effect against the SARS-CoV-2.

    Currently, the emergence of a novel human coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, has become a global health concern causing severe respiratory tract infections in humans. Human-to-human transmissions have been described with incubation times between 2-10 days, facilitating its spread via droplets, contaminated hands or surfaces. We therefore reviewed the literature on all available information about the persistence of human and veterinary coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces as well as inactivation strategies with biocidal agents used for chemical disinfection, e.g. in healthcare facilities. The analysis of 22 studies reveals that human coronaviruses such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronavirus, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus or endemic human coronaviruses (HCoV) can persist on inanimate surfaces like metal, glass or plastic for up to 9 days, but can be efficiently inactivated by surface disinfection procedures with 62e71% ethanol, 0.5% hydrogen peroxide or 0.1% sodium hypochlorite within 1 minute. Other biocidal agents such as 0.05e0.2% benzalkonium chloride or 0.02% chlorhexidine digluconate are less effective. As no specific therapies are available for SARS-CoV-2, early containment and prevention of further spread will be crucial to stop the ongoing outbreak and to control this novel infectious thread.

    When people don't have health insurance, they don't go to the doctor. You can also bet that a large amount of people without health insurance are going to work while sick, either because many bosses don't believe in sick time or because they're living paycheck to paycheck and need the money. And when you have a lot of people getting sick, not going to the doctor, and still going to work… well, that's how a virus spreads.

    Oprah Winfrey Revealed Details About a Recent Health Scare That 'Changed the Way' She Looks at Wellness

    SEPTEMBER 24, 2019 – 3:43 PM –
    Oprah Winfrey talks health scare

    Oprah Winfrey gets sick?! Believe it or not, YES! Apparently, this queen isn’t always feeling like one. And a recent health scare has changed her outlook on wellness. The media mogul, 65, opened up about a scary trip to the emergency room during an appearance on Monday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

    “I came back from overseas and I thought I had a cold,” she explained. However, it was not a common cold. Instead, Winfrey ended up in the emergency room, where she was told she had pneumonia. The OWN founder said, “And I go home with pneumonia, and pneumonia is nothing to play with y’all, it is very serious.”
    Winfrey went on antibiotics for a week, but they “weren’t working,” so she returned to the doctor for a CT scan. There, she learned her condition was “actually worse” and needed to see a lung specialist.CELEBS

    The TV personality told the lung specialist that she felt “a little rattling” in her chest. After the doctor checked with his stethoscope, he made an “oh sh*t! face,” she said. “It is like, oh my…something’s wrong with you,” she said in reference to the shocked doc. “He immediately said, ‘You must cancel everything,” Winfrey recalled. Not so easy when you are OPRAHHH! Up until that moment, the businesswoman admitted that she’s never canceled anything in her life. “I work when I’m sick,” she said. Of course she does.
    That wouldn’t fly this time. In fact, there would be no flying–she was told she couldn’t fly for a month. She left after having 18 vials of blood drawn, and the specialist called her every day to make sure she was using her inhaler and taking the right antibiotics. Thankfully, a week later she was feeling better

    “When I walked in and I was better, he thanked me three times for getting better, and said, ‘Can I have a hug?’ And I could tell that he was like, ‘Not on my watch is this gonna happen,’”

    There's simply no way of containing this virus in the US.
    With the majority of people having none to mild symptoms they're not going to go to the hospital stay home from work or get tested.
    If you are sick in anyway maybe cold or you think common flu avoid going near immunocompromised people or people with chronic illnesses or preexisting health problems like diabetes cardiovascular disease cancer pulmonary fibrosis COPD.

    Wash hands regularly don't touch your face. If you're going shopping do a double shop to limit frequency of being in crowded places. Don't eat out or buy fast food. If you can't find hand sanitizer buy 91 or 99% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and sum aloe vera gel or sunburn gel and mix your own. Even 70% rubbing alcohol will work just not as well.

    Trump Has Sabotaged America’s Coronavirus Response
    by Laura Garrett

    In 2018, the Trump administration fired the government’s entire pandemic response chain of command, including the White House management infrastructure. In numerous phone calls and emails with key agencies across the U.S. government, the only consistent response I encountered was distressed confusion.

    ….

    White House efforts included reducing $15 billion in national health spending and cutting the global disease-fighting operational budgets of the CDC, NSC, DHS, and HHS. And the government’s $30 million Complex Crises Fund was eliminated.

    In May 2018, Trump ordered the NSC’s entire global health security unit shut down, calling for reassignment of Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer and dissolution of his team inside the agency. The month before, then-White House National Security Advisor John Bolton pressured Ziemer’s DHS counterpart, Tom Bossert, to resign along with his team. Neither the NSC nor DHS epidemic teams have been replaced. The global health section of the CDC was so drastically cut in 2018 that much of its staff was laid off and the number of countries it was working in was reduced from 49 to merely 10. Meanwhile, throughout 2018, the U.S. Agency for International Development and its director, Mark Green, came repeatedly under fire from both the White House and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. And though Congress has so far managed to block Trump administration plans to cut the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps by 40 percent, the disease-fighting cadres have steadily eroded as retiring officers go unreplaced.

    Public health advocates have been ringing alarm bells to no avail.

    Ronald Klain, who directed U.S. efforts on Ebola, has been warning for two years that the United States was in grave danger should a pandemic emerge. In 2017 and 2018, the philanthropist billionaire Bill Gates met repeatedly with Bolton and his predecessor, H.R. McMaster, warning that ongoing cuts to the global health disease infrastructure would render the United States vulnerable to, as he put it, the “significant probability of a large and lethal modern-day pandemic occurring in our lifetimes.” And an independent, bipartisan panel formed by the Center for Strategic and International Studies concluded that lack of preparedness was so acute in the Trump administration that the “United States must either pay now and gain protection and security or wait for the next epidemic and pay a much greater price in human and economic costs.”

    As of 03/02/20 in the U.S.A., we still don't have the testing kits we need yet; just announced yesterday that test kits for 75,000 will be released over the next two weeks, with 50,000 more following. Reported 15,000 sent out over weekend. Reliable testing protocol absolutely vital to assessing and containment of COVID-19! Health experts and American public both in the dark without massive testing about which Americans, how many Americans have COVID-19–and where–so they can be isolated and treated before infecting others. Health experts have criticized Trump administraiton for inexplicably not adopting W.H.O. test much earlier. In the U.S. the CDC has conducted just 500 tests for COVID-19 to date, with 88 cases now known in the U.S. For perspective, compare to the U.K., with a much smaller population, who already tested 10,400 people, finding 23 COVID-19 cases.
    ~03/02/20 Stock future drop 110 points on volatile overnight trading, indicating another rough week for Wall St. There are now new confirmed cases of novel coronavirus or presumptive cases in California, Massachusetts, Washington state, Arizona, Illinois, Wisconsin, Oregon, Rhode Island, New York and Florida.

    ~State of Washington announes sencond death from COVID-19 in U.S. 03/01/20. First presumptive death in U.S. also from King County on 02/29/20; a 50-year-old man with health conditions. Deceased had unknown origin of contact with virus. Long-term health care facility there with many sick elderly residents suspected to have outbreak of COVID-19. In response, Trump finally vows to screen travelers entering the U.S., but only from certain areas in a few select nations. No details as to when screening will begin, what the screening process is or how effective, or how many travelers will be affected.

    ~Number of confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases in U.S. has jumped from 64, to 71 reported morning of 03/01/20, now 88 reported morning of 03/02/20. Business and individuals starting to cancel travel plans due to COVID-19, both global and domestic, impacting airlines, hotels and many other businesses in a cascading effect.

    ~First case in NY state confirmed. Three new cases in Oregon reported 02/28/20, one believed to be from community spread. Now three from community spread in California; one in Washington, and one in Oregon state. Third case in Illinois announced in Chicago 02/29/20, first two have recovered.

    ~03/01/20 Two new cases were confirmed in Washington state in King County on Sunday, bringing that state’s total to ten. Governor declares state emergency. Rhode Island also announced its first probable case. Florida announced two cases.

    ~03/01/20 The White House has scrambled to gain control of a rudderless response defined by bureaucratic infighting, confusion and misinformation. “It’s complete chaos,” one senior administration official said.

    ~03/01/20 The FDA expanded coronavirus testing by speeding up hospitals’ abilities to test, though some worried that the changes fell short. The number of confirmed cases is likely to increase given the expansion in testing. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said Sunday that the administration is watching for possible drug shortages from disruptions to the pharmaceutical supply chain in China.

    ~03/01/20 Coronavirus has also caused significant supply-chain disruptions affecting toys, medical equipment, auto parts and smartphones from China, none of which will be easy to smooth out, even if the virus ebbs within a month or two. The twin blows to consumer confidence and supply chains have significantly raised the chance of a recession, according to economists.

    ~Trump administration ignored and went against the advice of CDC top medical experts, brought infected patients back to the U.S. from Wuhan, China on the same plane as uninfected evacuees.

    ~U.S. workers WITHOUT protective gear assisted coronavirus evacuees, HHS whistleblower report states. Workers received Wuhan evacuees at two military bases in California without proper training or appropriate protective gear, alongside CDC in full hazmat attire. Whistleblower claims they were potentially exposed to COVID-19.

    ~First suspected community-spread case in N. California was untested for DAYS after disease contracted. CDC acknowledged Thursday that a California woman with coronavirus was made to wait days before she was tested for the disease because of the agency’s restrictive criteria about who may get tested. As a result of this case, CDC announces a whole new testing criteria is needed.

    ~On 02/28/20, we learned that there is a second SEPARATE COVID-19 case identified in California. Indications are that we have community spread from the unprotected government workers Trump administration sent to receive the Wuhan evacuees–once again, against the advice of medical experts.

    ~On 02/29/20, two new cases of COVID-19 in California and Oregon announced. Total cases in U.S. now stands at 64. Trump continues to lie about the epidemic, insisting only 15 Americans are infected.

    ~Trump places science-denier V.P. Pence–who also has no medical expertise–in charge of Federal response to COVID-19.

    ~Trump continues spreading misinformation on COVID-19, overly downplaying risk and danger, contradicting his own administration's health experts.

    ~DOW loses almost 1,200 in biggest single day loss EVER. Follows two previous day market losses around 1,000–$3.6 TRILLION from the American stock market ERASED for the week.. After the week, total market loss now stands at over 12%, ERASING all gains made in the market under Trump over three years in just one WEEK..

    ~Face masks–which unless surgical-grade N95–have limited effectiveness and are impractical for extended wear. Recommended for those exhibiting any flu or cold-like symptoms; not yet recommended for those healthy at this point.

    ~CDC: "People should understand that their lives may be significantly disrupted."

    ~The American workplace isn't ready for an epidemic. Many Americans have no insurance, many others can ill-afford deductibles, still more can't afford to take off work when not feeling well; more than a third of jobs don't offer sick days, and even where available, they may have been already used, or employees try saving them for more serious illness–all making us extremely vulnerable to epidemics such as COVID-19. Many jobs in America involve low-paying work in the service industry, where employees are in constant contact with, and exposed to, a huge swath of the public on a daily basis. These folks typically don't get sick days or insurance benefits, and can ill-afford to miss any work because of loss of money and the threat of losing their job. Many are ill-educated, and may not pay sufficient heed to health warnings, further exacerbating the spread of the epidemic facing us all.

    ~In plausible worst-case-scenarios given the pattern of the outbreak thus far, the country could experience acute shortages not just in ventilators but also health workers to operate them and care for patients; hospital beds; and masks and other protective equipment. Trump administration facing increasing criticism for not using these many weeks after learning of COVID-19 to prepare increased hospital capacity, stockpile medications, obtain adequate amounts of respirators and other equipment that will be vitally needed in the U.S..

    “Even during mild flu pandemics, most of our I.C.U.s are filled to the brim with severely ill patients on mechanical ventilation,” said Dr. Eric Toner, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and an expert on health care preparedness. “I hope and pray Covid-19 turns out to be a moderate pandemic, but if not, we’re in serious trouble,” he said, referring to the name given the disease caused by the virus.

    ~“The Chinese bought us a month of time to prepare ourselves by imposing these astonishing and draconian measures,” said J. Stephen Morrison, senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, which last year issued a report that identified flaws in the nation’s health security. “Unfortunately, we didn’t make good use of that time and now we’re heading into a very dangerous situation.”

    Got one American dead and more Americans dying from COVID-19, and who knows how many infected because this administration can't get its act together, still can't provide the requisite testing kits to keep the American people safe, still spreading extremely dangerous disinformation, dismissing a very real threat to public health as a "hoax."
    But all that's important to Trump and his ilk are getting laughs with vituperative, vindictive partisan demagoguery at their annual gala of gluttony CPAC conference–sticking it to the other side to assuage insecurities, so these losers can claim to be "winning." Pathetic, sickening, shocking, enraging, and highly alarming. BTW, the Presidency shouldn't be a stand-up comedian routine. We got a bad joke played upon us, instead of a real President. Big trouble is, Republicans just don't have what it takes to admit their mistakes–prefer to be yellow weasels bringing the whole nation down.

    Market drops over 3,000 in just three days, wiping out $3.6 TRILLION from our accounts and economy in one WEEK–setting records for biggest losses EVER in the stock market for a day and for a week.

    This virus is airborne and very contagious. If a infected person coughs , sneezes or even breathes hard, the germs go into the air and float in the wind. The ONLY way to slow it down is to stay away from people and try to breathe clean air. Not everyone can or will do this. There will be people who are sick and contaminated who will go in public and cough with no regard for anyone’s life. Remember this, the Spanish flu lasted one season. SARS lasted one season. Every flu virus in the past has come and gone and so will this one. This is literally a game of survivor island now. Stay away from people because that is how this virus spreads, and you will be fine. The people in this news report dont understand this. If you notice the reporter is standing outside without goggles and a face mask. It is possible he was breathing contaminated air. The people pushing the sick to the ambulance didnt have full contamination suits . The virus in the air can enter your body through your eyes. Be smart if you want to stay alive. Stay away from people until this virus burns itself out next year.

    It is so disturbing that third world countries are more prepared for an epidemic than our country. I don't understand why anyone would cut back on the funds of the CDC when this department is the most important of all. Mean time we're told to stop buying protective gear like mask while all you see on TV are foreign countries trying to take care of their citizens. Than too, what's so disturbing is you have a female doctor on TV trying to tell people about different masks and not giving complete information on the different types for one's safety. This outbreak seems like it's an airborne virus and no one is even addressing this type of virus, and you need a different type of mask, the thin ones want really protect anyone from an airborne virus. That could be a reason it has affected people that hasn't been in contact with anyone that's known to have been affected. These people aren't giving all possibilities that will help our citizens. I don't think we can really rely on them, it seems as if they aren't willing to tell us the truth and protect us. We need someone that cares about our citizens like the other countries does, not only caring about themselves.🤔👪🙄

    It's so sad but God is punishing the entire world because of the pride and lack of compassion. Imagine no politicians, military etc can match up with this virus. This is sad but God gave the world so much time be to change from selfishness etc but no one wanted to do then right things and look now no one is tough enough for this!!! The Bible says if my People shall humble themselves, seek my face….. Then shall I hear from heaven and heal their land. Repent everyone repent. I live the experience of helping a lot of people around the country who coldly abandoned me in my time of struggles that even they caused. No President or world leaders have the power to protect us only God can but we must all repent and ask God to forgive mankind for evil hearts!

    Significant number of floaters who are spreader of virus can exponentially contaminate a large population. The most vulnerable and those with underlying medical conditions are usually compromised, gets complication and finally pneumonia sets in. The body struggle to fight off several complications until they are overwhelmed by the shutdown of their vital organs and death will follow. Prevention and containment is the key word here. Please take every precaution everybody. Be safe and protect yourself. May God protect us.
