As Coronavirus Fears Rise, How Many Will Blow Off Quarantine?

It really doesn’t take many, does it, to spread it around? Jazz Shaw notes how some people were jerks during the Ebola crisis in 2016, even though they knew they were in contact with people with Ebola, because they worked in Africa. And this wonderful person

New Hampshire’s first coronavirus patient, a hospital employee, went to an event tied to Dartmouth business school on Friday despite being told to stay isolated, officials say, and all others who went to the event are now being told to stay isolated.

The announcement on Tuesday came as state health officials said a second person in the state is presumed to have the new coronavirus, COVID-19. That person was in close contact with the first patient, and the officials expect more coronavirus cases may be found as they investigate.

The second, presumed patient is a man, according to the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, which didn’t provide additional details or say exactly where he came into contact with the first patient.

That’s right, the person went to a party. A party. Despite knowing better as a health worker themselves. Don’t be surprised if they are terminated from their job in a couple months for being irresponsible. And then you have this here in the Wake County, NC area

(WRAL) The Wake County Department of Health and Human Services has notified a Raleigh restaurant that the person who they said has contracted the COVID-19 virus from this area ate there recently. Within 24 hours of being notified, a lot has changed for So•ca. Thursday, a team of professional cleaners will offer assistance, helping ensure their health and safety guidelines meet all standards.

According to officials, the man sat in a private room. The area where he sat was bleached and sanitized, and nobody was allowed to sit where he had sat several days before. They have compiled a list of any guests or employees who may have had interaction with the man.

“When the Wake County Department of Health and Human Services showed up early this afternoon, we compiled a list, using our reservation and point of sale systems, of all guests who could have potentially been in contact with the individual,” So•ca owner Sean Degnan said in a press release to WRAL on Wednesday. “We were able to bleach, rinse and sanitize every piece of silver, glassware, plate, table, door handle, touch screen, etc. and Lysol every chair and cushion before dinner service.

Despite all precautions being taken, some locals are still concerned about the days that passed between the time the COVID-19 patient ate at So•ca and when So•ca was notified.

This person traveled to Seattle and was in direct contact with the area that had the worst outbreak. There’s no way they didn’t know, and then they flew back. Then decided to go to dinner. And interacted with goodness who knows.

It can spread pretty fast when people do not take precautions, whether they know they have it or not. And there will be the jerks who won’t just stay home, putting the rest of us at risk.

    Teach
    Trump is already telling people that itvis ok to go to work if they are sick
    Didn’t you see that tweet?
    Aren’t you paying attention to him ?

    Apparently on fox and friends president trump said

    -A lot of people will have this and it’s very mild. They’ll get better very rapidly. They don’t even see a doctor. They don’t even call a doctor. You never hear about those people. So you can’t put them down in the category of the overall population in terms of this corona flu and/or virus. So you just can’t do that. So, if you know, we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work. Some of them go to work, but they get better.-

    but it reads more like a statement of whats happening than a recommendation to go to work sick.

    It wasn’t a tweet; trump called the Ministry of Disinformation. FOX, in this case, Hannity.

    “If we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better, just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work, some of them go to work, but they get better, and then when you do have a death, like you’ve had in the state of Washington, like you had one in California, I believe you had one in New York,” Trump said on “Hannity.”

    There is always a problem with trump’s verbatim quotes these days.
