The media is being kept from telling the entire truth to the public. Many more people are being isolated, quarantined, or asked to stay home in self-imposed isolation pending changes in ability to test and report.
I've been in self-imposed isolation for days. There is not enough testing available. This is fucking bullshit. Seriously.
Also, a nurse at the clinic mentioned that they are testing animals and pets because they think that community spread will be common through not only human-to-human contact, but also human-to-animal-to-human contact.
When I asked her how bad this was going to get, she said not as bad as an Ebola Pandemic but depending on how this all evolves, we don't know a lot about how this virus is spreading in communities and whether or not it is changing and becoming far more aggressive. For example, the people who are confirmed in California right now, who acquired the virus in the community in an unknown way, are in serious condition and may not survive.
I'm fucking scared.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump is coming onto a performance stage for his rally to Macho Macho Maaaaannnnnnnn...
Either the nurse is retarded or you are. only niggers in mud huts died of ebola.
Ebola is rare, but it has a high mortality rate of about 50% (although that rate has ranged from 25% to 90% in past outbreaks). The 2014–2016 outbreak in West Africa was the largest Ebola epidemic to occur: 28,610 people were infected and 11,308 died.
The mortality rate for this new virus is in the single digits, so far. Now how is the nurse retarded again? If we had a major Ebola outbreak in the States, it could wipe out everything. No one would leave their homes and starve to death and industry would halt. I don't think you understand that the media is not allowed to give the facts on any of this anymore because our USG has banned the media from reporting anything from scientists or doctors without first going through their channels.
How long can you quarantine for? do you have a job you can do from home?
Fucking Chinese woman at OU Emergency Room I figure it was her. Bug eaters don't seem to give a shit.
Sage Please let it me so i don't have to see this spam shill shit on page 1
For now I have to wait up to 4 days before testing.
I'm in a rural town with less than 1000 people. We don't even have a hospital closer than 30 miles away.
This isn't spam. What in the hell?
They haven't even been testing Oklahomans for covid-19. There's just the standard placard of "been to china?, tell your doctor". Yeah great.
Doing a job form home requires using postal mail, FedEx, and UPS. Right now they're freaking out because they're pretty sure this virus is spreading through parcel contact. They've already demonstrated that it can live over 96 hours on a cell phone. All of those Amazon overnight deliveries are potential vectors. Of course, the media isn't going to comment on this because the Trump Administration will sue them.
A lot of rural places in America are like that. I saw a netflix documentary about the next superflu and there were people in places like OK that waited so long to go to the only hospital was so far away and that hospital could only afford ONE doctor that did 40 something hour shifts.
Well normally, Rural OK doesn't need a lot of health care, but thanks to liberalism sneaking in, and Obama, OK has been flooded with diseased 3rd worlders, so suddenly we have a "crisis" and nobody seems to know (will admit) the cause.
I live here and they are testing and sending the tests off to Atlanta or somewhere. It's all over the local news here. If you don't believe me, just look it up. They were testing us back in January too. I remember they were testing around 5 weeks ago locally. But now the testing is changing and the signs and symptoms list is changing since the community spread started in California.
We've always had health crisis in this State. Where have you been? The mental health issues here are the worst. They refuse to accept medicaid expansion and it costs peoples' lives. I'm not a socialist but I am when it comes to universal healthcare 100% and it should be in every single state in the union. Prevention is better than fighting a pandemic of physical or mental illness.
>They refuse to accept medicaid expansion and it costs peoples' lives. Medicare expansion is a sad joke. We already are like 300% of the federal poverty limit on eligibility. We give 100% coverage to lazy-ass people now, and illegal aliens (trust me on this we do). Now they are pushing to give another 800,000 oklahomas freebies. The tax base is already being stressed, with high sales taxes and high property taxes as well as income taxes.
I feel like the media is overblowing this shit just like everything else. Last I heard the deaths were in the 2000+ which is probably exaggerated. Also keep in mind that the earths population is 7.8 billion so that's a very small percentage.
>Last I heard the deaths were in the 2000+ We can trust chinese numbers of course. Just ignore all the portable crematoriums they're setting up in Hubei province.
Medicaid not medicare. There is no medicare expansion pending in Oklahoma. However, the enormous amount of funds for Medicaid are just sitting there. They are part of Obama's healthcare. That's why OK won't approve it. But, it can't be used for anything else. Ever. Only Medicaid. And you think that's a sick joke? Well, it is a sick joke. It's why I've lost so many of my friends and family to suicide, drugs, alcohol, car accidents, they just give up because they get a few steps ahead and then fall back behind a thousand steps. Like when Trump thought it would be cute to shut down all Housing Vouchers for people in low income communities. Now they can't even get on a waiting list and end up in prison, jail, or dead.
I assumed coronavirus was meant to help overpopulation of China and got out of hand.
OK state question 802 and we're all voting it in so don't worry about these republican cocksuckers trolling you and stay safe
china fucked up. this ruins their plan of world domination. they have become the pariah of the friendly world.
which part of the state are you in?
Who is keeping "the media" under wraps and why? You conspiracy tards are such liars. If you know something then why don't you publish it on your own media? Answer: because you are a lying liar and have nothing.
Southeast Oklahoma. Anyone presenting with a certain criteria of symptoms are being asked to self-isolate just in case it turns out to be the novel Coronavirus. People are wearing masks all over this motherfucker now. Even while they are out jogging and shit. It's weird as fuck.
Donald Trump is. He made it illegal for any scientists or doctors or specialists that are treating the virus to talk to any media indefinitely. This was a breaking news report either yesterday or Wednesday, I'm not sure. It was on every single channel in a big news conference and broadcast all over the world. Where have you been? Under a rock?
Not long afterward, they had a Fox News interview with a man and his daughter who had just came off of isolation and the guy was coughing up his lungs on national television and drinking out of the same bottle of water as his daughter. This was to keep the public from getting alarmed and to show how "mild" the virus can be. In the meantime, the community spread victims of the virus in the states are in serious condition and hospitalized in California on machines to help them breathe.
The White House moved on Thursday to tighten control of coronavirus messaging by government health officials and scientists, directing them to coordinate all statements and public appearance with the office of Vice President Mike Pence, according to several officials familiar with the new approach.... Mr. Pence was scheduled to lead a meeting of the government’s coronavirus task force on Thursday.
The vice president’s first move appeared to be aimed at preventing the kind of contradictory statements from White House officials and top government health officials that have plagued the administration’s response. Even during his news conference on Wednesday, Mr. Trump rejected the assessment from a top health official that it was inevitable that the coronavirus would spread more broadly inside the United States.
Goddamn so how do we get the scientific facts if they made it against the law to report them?
Oh yea he made it illegal all on his own? I’m thinking you don’t know how laws in America get passed.
where are you in se ok? I'm near there and we don't have any cases or testing that I know of but the shelves at walmart are fucking empty as shit and no masks or lysol or any of the shit they're saying to stock up on you can order it online but it costs about 60 times the usual cost just for some antibacterial hand wash
its called a directive and it was on the news here a couple of days ago too
basically if you break it you can lose your job, go to jail for distributing false info, or if a panic ensues then you could be charged with inciting a riot
the pres can also make anything into a law through executive order dipshit or suspending the constitution or any of a number of other ways
that doesnt mean like gag when you are sucking cock
I think OP left
Well you don't want to know the actual news In Germany we jumped from 5 infections to 1000 infections in just one day They had already shut down public services in some smaller city's.
It's NOT spreading through parcel contact. It has a terrible survivability on surfaces At ambient temperature for a day the thing dies. To go one step further - There is no evidence from any previous outbreak that anyone has ever gotten infected from a package.
It's going to be like this all over the world. People have no idea what's coming.
Not according to the CDC in the States (before the White House told them to shut the fuck up):
"But the virus can also likely live on the surfaces these droplets touch, sometimes for multiple days, says Rudra Channappanavar, an immunologist who has studied coronaviruses at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Glass in particular—like the kind on screen of the smartphone you’re probably reading this on—can harbor live coronaviruses for up to 96 hours, or four days at room temperature."
Now this is what it says AFTER Trump clamped down on outgoing information from official:
"Spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads."
Pretty much the same thing, though. If the mail takes 4 days or less, it can be on it and active. That's straight from the CDC.
It was originally meant for times of war or emergency, but he's right.
In the United States, an executive order is a directive issued by the president of the United States that manages operations of the federal government. The legal or constitutional basis for executive orders has multiple sources.
