West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice pounds the table at the conclusion of his press conference saying the state can beat the coronavirus challenge

If there's no testing, there's no Coronavirus!  Mission accomplished!

This is great. Now we get to see if a combination of meth and fentanyl is an effective therapy against the coronavirus.

Snark aside, I'm actually surprised (and impressed) that he's implementing bar/restaurant closures after one case.

Should he have done so sooner?  Probably.  Relative to the condition of his state, though, he is implementing health recommendations pretty damn soon.  There are other Republican states worse off right now than WV, that are doing much less.

Someone called me out for the 6.8% death rate in the U.S. the other day, saying, "How can you use that statistic when there's no testing?"

West Virginia, step up and earn your prize.

I think if'n you only sleep with siblings and cousins you're probably less vulnerable to exposure, well, at least to coronavirus I guess, so WV should indeed have a reduced risk. Suck it libs.

And with this, coronavirus has hit all 50 states and coincidentally just hit 100 deaths.
Keep in mind the time delay until symptoms appear and the worsening of cases and imagine what this would look like 2-3 weeks from now, especially as control measures are JUST being put into place.

Its going to disproportionately affect fatties and the elderly - America is doomed... or demand for healthcare is going to be insane and then free up a lot of future resources.

I think there were other prohibitions earlier.  I was in Snowshoe on Friday and Saturday, and there was a crew disassembling a stage on Friday afternoon, and I overheard them tell someone that they had to cancel the show because large gatherings were banned.

It's possible that it was the company's policy (Snowshoe is owned by Vail), and not the state ordering it, though.

I should also mention that I know a couple people who lived in the eastern panhandle and commuted to DC.  ( one by train, the other kept an apartment in DC and worked a couple of days a week in the city) ... so I'm not surprised they're the first area to get it.

Oh well.  At least I got some pepperoni rolls on Saturday.
