As a former UPI reporter I gave this article a D- minus. Community Spread is not defined by the writer, yet it's a key descriptor in the headline. Even the suggestion of its plain meaning, that the Community is seeing the virus advance because of something the community shouldn't be doing - is unsubstantiated.

"A serious outbreak inside the community could have devastating effects. Most who show symptoms from the virus develop a fever or cough and may have trouble breathing, though they do recover.

Consider this two-sentence paragraph. Couldn't the first sentence be said of any community? This has nothing pertinent to offer readers with an interest specific to The Villages.

"Prior to the opening of the testing site, The Villages slowly began to shut down its expansive social scene. That’s after the community — which leans Republican — had sought to downplay the virus’s affects as President Donald Trump repeatedly expressed confidence the virus would be contained inside the U.S."

First, it's effects, not affects. This writer has a law degree, which made me marvel not only at his spelling, but also at his assertion that the community had sought to downplay the "virus's affects" (sic). In my opinion, his statement is invidious and made without any substantiation. His additional reference to politics (apparently the real cause of the spread of infection) is another irrelevant injection in what purported to be a story about disease. And when did the president ever state that the virus would be contained within the US? Let me be clear, the Wuhan virus started in...where was it?...oh, yeah, Wuhan. How can it be contained in the US?

I know, he means something else. But that's why E.B. White said you should re-read your own work, because while you think you may have said what you meant, chances are very good you haven't.

He also uses a couple propaganda devices to take a swipe at the president. One is "Authority". He quotes a nurse (a healthcare authority) but he doesn't quote her on healthcare. He quotes her on politics to leverage her authority into an area it doesn't apply. He uses her to spread the false claim that people (Trump has been the one accused of this) have called the virus a hoax. Here is what he said:

"One of my people came up to me and said, “Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia. That didn’t work out too well. They couldn’t do it. They tried the impeachment hoax that was on a perfect conversation. They tried anything. They tried it over and over. They’ve been doing it since you got in. It’s all turning, they lost, it’s all turning. Think of it. Think of it. And this is their new hoax.” (DJT 2/28/20)

Finally, he uses her comment on the awakening of the community as though this one person has her finger on The Villages pulse. That's just bad judgment. Maybe D-minus is generous.
Thanks for dissecting such a lame excuse of ‘journalism’. Google the AP writer’s story on the virus & The Villages that is now about a week old. It was worse! Same blabber about the ‘right-leaning’ Villagers! GOD help us!

Still can’t believe how a group of people (6-8) still walking in a group with dogs around Eisenhower every day. Stupid, who’s going to walk dogs when they die?

Default Spread

One can have this virus from two to three weeks without symptoms all the time infecting others.

It can be spread by touch. The infected person touches the grocery cart handle then you touch it and now you are infected

It can be spread lots of other ways also it’s very contagious.

If you have the virus on your hands, you become infected if you touch your face (eyes, nose or mouth). Everything I have read and seen on TV, all the experts claim to keep your hands away from your face and you will not contract the virus in this manner.

Droplets in your eyes, nose or mouth is another mode of transmission for the virus. Not sure about airborne transmission; that is very scary if airborne actually is proven to be a mode of transmission.

That statement is simply ridiculous !!!!!!!

You won’t get the virus by simply touching an area that “Might” be infected.....

That being said, if you then lick your fingers or pick your nose or stick your finger in your eye , then maybe .....LOL !!!!

That's right. These same idiots go to supermarkets like all of us and possibly spread it there.
Infected by people who traveled and caught it.

It is proven if you’re within coughing distance. Add number ___ in the blank what consider coughing distances. So far the experts say it won’t travel 6 feet? Now if you saying it lives and floats through air and travel in air stream fail when rains or down draft we’re up creek.

Check out page B3 Localnews section of today's Daily S--. 50 people in a driveway recently in Haciendas of Mission Hills. Seriously? And the Daily S--prints the picture like it was a great thing. Some people are just clueless. OH, but they kept their appropriate distance. It must have been quite a big driveway. BS

Then, an oblivious woman overtook me from behind, and passed me about two feet away.

When I shouted out, she seemed surprised.

Maybe I need to start walking & holding a side view mirror?

The experts have not said for sure if the virus is airborne. In fact, I watched a video of a pulmonary doctor on the front lines in NYC. That video is posted on TOTV. He said there are only two ways to contract this virus and airborne is not one of them.We all know by now what the two modes of transmission are.
