There are now 30 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including a recent confirmation in Seminole County within the past couple of hours. From 14 to 30 in less than 48 hours - that's double, in 2 days. So double that and you might see 60 in 2 days. And in 2 more days, 120. And so on, and so on. "Only" is never only.

The governor, Rick Scott, announced that he has been exposed to it and is in self-quarantine as a result.

Default 10 times more deadly than the flu

Johns Hopkins has a map of cases and it is sobering. Keep your eye on the rising numbers of Florida cases. We are all old—the highest risk factor for death.
You are spot on with your post. The Coronavirus is said to be ten times more deadly than the flu. It’s only a matter of time before there is a confirmed case or cases in The Villages. We must be personally diligent and hopefully that will be enough to avoid this virus that has no current vaccine or known helpful treatment.

i've heard the news say we're supposed to call our reg dr's & ask where to go to. we are not supposed to go to a reg walk-in, er or medical center, so i'd start by calling a personal physician

Florida Department of Health Also has case roster. At the top of the page after you click coronavirus there should be a red bar with info to call with questions. CDC says if you have cough + fever + shortness of breath, call your doctor.

Same happened Feb 15th, my father-in-law fell and the first responders told us The Villages ER was not accepting any patients.

The governor, Rick Scott, announced that he has been exposed to it and is in self-quarantine as a result. Snipped from Post #31.

Rick Scott is now a United States Senator. Ron DeSantis is presently The Governor of Florida.

My estimation is Rick Scott was a Great Manager during Irma and on other issues. He continues to be a good example to the people of Florida as he has Self-Quarantined himself. I think he is a fantastic communicator. How many people feel the symptoms and continue to go on about their daily chores? Some are living on a shoestring and have no choice. It's a shame but its reality.

"Fear not, for some of us are WAY smarter than government officials. Don't believe, just ask us."
We would prefer our officials feed into the frenzy, throwing us all into a dither. What is wrong with some government officials? Taking the optimistic road rather than the more popular "Sky is falling" mode.
Shame on them.

I read a report that said the "actual" doubling rate is six days. The "confirmed" cases may appear to rise faster as diagnostic capabilities are ramped up.

How did Rick Scott become governor again? He got sick of working, so he got elected to a federal government position.

Did Sen. Scott have a test? I’m not understanding why people (predominantly politicians) think they’ve been exposed but don’t get tested. Then they go into self quarantine when if they have the test, they’d know for sure they’re positive. What am I missing?
