    No one wants to be tested nor quarantined because it cost a lot. Who’s paying for it? The government. Nope. Taxes. And once the patient is alright the bill is gonna be sent to him or her. Bill debt in the thousands!

    Can you try to use mollasses. A product made out of remains of sugar cane and burnt cow bones. It is normally used to feed cattle. Mixing it with strong ginger could work. In this case reduce the use of caffein and vegetables. Add plenty of glucose. Boil water, add honey and lemon, drink warm. Water and mollases alternative atleast 5 times during the day. This must work. Dishes of chicken and sugar beans, grean grams, lentils.

    No the US is being mislead about the virus. Masks have not been available to the general public for 2 months. Now hospitals are running out of masks and medical offices can not order them. This is a planned perfect storm. It will be used as a weapon in 2020 Elections. Watch your local governments be prepared.

    The problem with government information is you cannot tell if it is a fact or not. Many times they mix facts with lies. Other times it is just a lie. This goes for the media as well. It seems today, unless you see it with your own eyes, you cannot tell if it is a fact.

    News: don’t use the masks. They don’t work if you’re healthy

    News: the masks are only good for those who are already sick, they help prevent the spread of droplets and germs to people around them

    News: Cases are showing that asymptomatic transmission is possibly happening. Patients that test positive and have no symptoms at all, some didn’t realize they even have the virus.

    News: no need for masks, just wash your hands.

    So if they’re asymptomatic and contagious…but won’t use a mask because they feel healthy but possibly infecting others without knowing it?????

    Eh I don’t know 😅

    This is where it confuses me.

    But the CDC ONLY lets them test people with a travel history from an infected country. NO general public testing allowed. They keep promising to test in 5 cities but keep putting it off (cause if you test you will find it).

  • Reply Hadria Seidel February 28, 2020 at 6:55 pm

    WOW! 93 Test kits for the entire country? That's why the number of reported infected is still so low. I have a CRAZY idea, how about we test everybody that's sick? Oh that's right cuz then we would ACTUALLY know how many people are sick. I'm sorry what was I thinking nothing to see here folks we wouldn't want to save lives if it means loosing money. Carry on

    from three different tests that have traced the genome of the Italian strain it has been found that in Italy the virus has been present since December and therefore in China everything must have started much earlier. the scandalous thing is that the W.H.O. knew it and attempted to protect Chinese economic interests instead of warning us. Now they are trying to protect Italian and European economic interests instead and lower the tone also on the Italian crisis, I as an Italian and therefore against my national interests, I tell you stay at home and be sure, do not travel, do not come here. Officially there are 850 cases in a week, probably in Lombardy there are 5000 positive people unknowingly. By the way, I also tell you that all the countries bordering on Italy agree and are minimizing the number of cases for economic reasons.
