All those years the MAGAhats thought it was Obama that would lock them away in the FEMA camps.

"This Corona Virus thing is bad.  It's a real bad hombre, believe me. The CDC was just telling me that this morning, they said, 'Mr. Trump, this Corona Virus is one bad hombre, and the left, those loony liberals, they're blaming you,' that's what they said.  So I'm declaring an emergency situation here, an emergency called Loony Liberalism, and I have the cure, I have it right here.  All you have to do is vote for Trump this November and there won't be any more emergency, we'll wipe it right out, believe me, and then we can build that big, beautiful wall to keep that Corona Virus out for good!"

How can he call it an emergency? it's a dem hoax, remember? or is this a case of we've always been at war with eastasia and the previous claims will be forgotten by trump loyalists...

That's the best, most luxurious type of quarantine!

The greeters weren't CDC employees, they were clueless HHS employees who went right on back to work with everyone else after that. The CDC told them not to bring uninfected and infected on the same plane.

Phew, good to know that they are only quarantining people that have specifically come from wuhan on that one plane.

It isn't like there are any other nations with infections or person-to-person within the US, is it?
 
2020-03-02 3:57:23 PM  
Trump won't declare an emergency. He would consider that a failure.
He'll just flee to Epstein's island and leave the rest of us to suffer.

How the fark do you work for the CDC with 'no training'?  I imagine even the accountants at the CDC get infectious disease training.


When someone in a health sector talks about not having training, they are usually talking about a specific SOP, Standard Operating Procedure.  In this case, something that deals specifically with the mass comercial transport of individuals who are potential viral carriers.  And depending on how complicated that procedure is it will either be something as simple as reading a document or instructional training.  It could even be something as simple as they saw the material but didn't formally sign that they read them.

That was declare a "National Emergency" a while ago.

Feb 13, 2020 - Whitehouse.gov - Text of a Notice on the Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to the Southern Border of the United States

"On February 15, 2019, by Proclamation 9844, I declared a national emergency concerning the southern border of the United States to deal with the border security and humanitarian crisis that threatens core national security interests...blah blah blah criminals blah blah blah drugs blah blan Messicans blah blah blah..."

edmo: All those years the MAGAhats thought it was Obama that would lock them away in the FEMA camps.


In the Azar thread from ealier today, I had wondered what the Trump administration would do if 1. a vaccine was created while the epidemic was still raging, and 2. it was affordable/available to everyone, but 3. anti-vaxxers refused to take it.

A few months ago when there it seemed that there was typhus outbreak here in Los Angeles, a few radio hosts railed against the homeless, saying that the trash around their tent communities were the perfect breeding environment for the rats who transmitted the disease.  Fortunately the typhus hysteria seems to have gone away, but the same radio hosts are now targeting the homeless again as the perfect environment to foster the spread of Coronavirus - unsanitary conditions, unwilling/unable/reluctant to seek medical care, etc.  Given that Trump has offered in the past to help California - and L.A. and San Francisco in particular - resolve the homeless situtation (without saying exactly what he would do), this would be the perfect "solution" to "concentrate" isolate the homeless away from the general population.

the homeless are the least likely to transmit coronavirus, they travel very little, attend large gatherings infrequently and spend very little time in enclosed spaces with other people. These radio hosts are using american deaths to push their own personal political agendas which in other nations might be considered abhorrent, but in america it is perfectly acceptable in these trump years.

This is part of the hoax. Once Trump declares it an emergency all the people that faked their deaths, faked being sick and everyone else involved around the world are going stand up, point at Trump and laugh.

Yeah -- he needs his 'win'...as much as I think he will try and cancel the elections....I do see he will need to have his victory lap over anything else:  The sting of knowing everyone knows Putin helped him and he lost the popular vote has gotta burn for a narcissist...so he is gonna go for the win (Jesus...he crows about winning primaries no one is running against him in!!!!!)

It's not the first one.  I'm pretty certain at least one ebola patient was federally quarantined the last time we had a good pandemic panic.  That jackass who kept going outside.
