I suggest you search the web for the 1918 Spanish influence to see what a real pandemic looks like! We’re no where near that (YET)

Wondering how many people in that urgent care carried the virus out to the community, and dt lack of test kits in most likelihood, she was sent to infect all at the Villages Regional ER. We need drive thru tests and for the everyone to stay home!

You clearly do not understand the severity of this virus. Please do not compare to the flu. It is a virus that NO ONE has immunity against.

I'll try to elucidate you golfing eagles.

1. Dr. Fauci says the president has been enacting much of what he recommends.

2. Dr. Fauci recommends a nationwide quarantine (much like Italy).

3. The president said multiple times in yesterday's news conference that he is indeed considering it, but not immediately.

4. Your OPINION was that a nationwide quarantine (as Dr. Fauci is urging) would result in a "global depression and millions of deaths".

5. YOU accuse ME of making "misinformative posts that promote panic".

The numbers are skewed because there are so many who are not tested so we really don’t know how many. I wonder too if the health care professionals change their criteria for Testing as more information comes out from the CDC which could cause the increase in numbers to look steeper than they are. Just some thoughts. No matter though, we still need to follow the CDCs recommendations in order to slow the spread.

Hi Byte1.

I never mentioned martial law. Our civilian government is intact and there's no need or basis for it.

I think it's terribly naive to think 330 MILLION citizens would all agree to voluntarily self-quarantine. Since rapid eradication of the Covid-19 requires isolation to prevent spread, many in the infectious disease and scientific community recommend it.

REally? I don’t need to be told. I know what to do? Do people in Holyoke Nebraska need to be quarantined? NO. Life in Holyoke Nebraska is already quarantined. Each state has a governor. And each governor should decide what is best for his state. Hello. Blame your governors..

If everyone quarantined immediately, this would effectively end in a matter of weeks with the virus dying out. These half measures of restaurant partial closures, etc... simply extend the misery and ultimately increase the overall spread and number of deaths.

Unfortunately, in my opinion, it appears we're choosing to follow the Italian model of spread and death. Eventually, when the numbers are high enough, the administration will make the hard choice to order a nationwide mandatory quarantine.

Good management means staying ahead of critical situations, and never getting in the position of having to react to one. IMO this virus will, in the end, require a nationwide short term quarantine or forced stoppage of all unnecessary movement. Why wait? Shut it down now and get ahead of the curve. Unfortunately we are in an election year, and does anyone think that your normal politician cares more for us than his reelection?

Also, I know someone who works at The Villages Hospital who told of at least 2 cases seen at the hospital today.
Any employee who spouts off information, that is not a designated spokesperson should be fired. It’s what fuels panic, and the unknown.

We were reminded that no information is discussed even in the halls, much less to a random person, who then can post any hear say.

We also received an email warning immediate dismissal would be warranted, for violating any named or unnamed case.
