    This answers nothing but basic knowledge that everybody assumes they know ,it does not answer ANYTHING because the US is NOT prepared if this Coronavirus gets out of hand. What about our borders and people make their way to Mexico even by planes and work their way to the United States and what if Mexico gets hit by the Coronavirus and people start getting over here and some make it and sneak into our country and they have the Coronavirus and then they hide out all over the country., h as our country figured out. Our border patrol probably need protection suits and what about the firemen and the police department. How can you go to some of the medical clinics that are set up everywhere even included Acme stores and another example CVS because they don't have a clue how to handle this and if you normally cough ,because that's what you do with COPD and trust me these urgent cares won't have a clue. What do you do if you have to have your normal blood work, and tests and scans and every other thing you go to a hospital for. Right now people have panic and have bought out every surgical masks and there's none available. The people that already need them for medical problems can't even get them so we're already impacted. Washing your hands is something you should do, it will give you a little help if you're at home, that doesn't do any good at all when you have to leave the house and go somewhere, then, that does nothing. Viruses always make their way to United States, but this one spreads very very fast and will people will see more and more of it in the United States and are going to start hoarding absolutely everything. How do you even go to your regular doctor, is there going to be so busy, you won't even be able to get in and you do will be sitting in an office that probably has people with the virus. Make a list of 2000 things and you probably won't get all the problems we're going to have that the government has not even thought of, and not even tried to work,on and I'm sure didn't start . we have already heard the information you gave us a thousand times so this was totally worthless and let me say STUPID. Per usual

    Dr. Fauci…..Very, very low risk to the US. Stay calm…..no need to panic…….no need to store up a few extra days (weeks) of supplies… Trust us…
    everything is under control. Going to let 6 cities do random tests for the virus (that's all the testing that is going to be done???)…..they will send the tests to the CDC…..CDC will keep you informed…no need to test locally….everything is under control….We will be sure to get back to you….. They know far more than they are telling us, don't want a panic to set in. You can trust anything the government tells you, just like the figures coming out of China, control the narrative, control the people.

    The best way to contain the virus is to inform the people so we can make the necessary precautions and preparations. Government is acting like we aren't facing a big problem. But we are. BAN ALL TRAVEL. It will affect the economy but for a few months if we self quarentine and stop travel altogether. Once everyone is affected good luck containing. We're looking at years of hardship and econimic problems if we don't take it seriously. Japan will have a spike in cases and people still free to travel to the US.

    This is exactly why the bible lists clean and unclean foods. It wasn't just about ceremonial purity, it was also about keeping people throughout the centuries healthy, and protecting them from themselves. Before people could even understand what diseases were and how they were transmitted, God created measures to protect them. There's so much truth in the Word, and so few who care to find it. Please read your bibles, people, and utilize materials like Walter Veith's Total Onslaught vids, and Ellen White's Conflict of the Ages books.

    America's still the safest country in the world. Better not travel for the next year or so or until a vaccine is produced. If you have to travel overseas, then be prepared to be quarantined when returned. Simple as that. As long as there's no outbreak within the US, the US population will still be free to move about without worries.

  • Reply Annee Crie February 22, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    Dr. Azar says reputable researchers conclude it can spread when an infected person has no symptoms, then talks as if it's only spreads when a person is symptomatic. Wow, double-speak isn't what people in our country need right now. Sure, a COVID19 infected person can spread it even worse once they have symptoms, but when is that? When they start coughing on day 2, or when they get a low grade fever? Or when they get pneumonia? She never tells people what we know (as per WHO and CDC), 80% mild, 20% very sick (yes, based on China's dubious numbers, but cases outside China substantiate that). Can your community manage caring for an uptick in 'very sick' people? How many isolation units does your local hospitals have? How many people can your local hospitals intubate? How much protective equipment does your local health care system have? If they have shortages (I hear that flu season has wiped out supply), what can our nation do about it without causing shortages in places like India or Africa? How many people in your community can afford to stay off work in 'self-quarantine' for two weeks? A month? Six weeks? They tell us to expect community outbreaks, but breathe not a word about what that means to people who might live in such a community. Epidemiologists defer saying they aren't public health experts. Public health defer saying they aren't epidemiologists. Censorship is already in place with YTube, Goggly, Twit, etc. Maybe the world will luck-out and this virus will Peter-out, but we've sure gotten a good look at to how the world, if communist or capitalist will 'handle it.' Sadly, Public Relations won't work to stop the spread of contagion.

    If someone thinks they have it, as soon as they enter the hospital they are guaranteed to spread it. So……..unless you make anyone with flu like symptoms, they go through the back door, or be prepared for everyone in the waiting room to get it.
