You can click them to see. The biggest spot in the USA is centered on the map because it has no location, these are the recent arrivals from the cruise ship I believe.

They're designated as "Unassigned Location (From Diamond Princess)"

Each map point is a clickable hot spot to drill down for details. In the case above, the big red spot near Kansas is the 36 passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship that are un the USA but they don't have a precise location for to map.....

I hate to burst your (and MKs apparently) bubble, but most found out about this outbreak via the MSM and not your thread. After finding out about it, I came here (days/week after finding out) to read this thread expecting the usual predictable themes from members here. Also, as usual it didn’t disappoint.
Their duty is to inform the world of an infection and suggest containment methods. Not to praise an incompetent government, not waste time trying to come up with a nice name, not case about the economic impact, and not changing words and meaning of criteria when it become a pandemic. That why the WHO has failed at it job and should be abolish. Literally I had several conversation with people prior to the shit hitting the fan saying hey maybe we should prepare and stock up on these goods and supplies for the industry I'm in. The response was well the WHO saying China doing a fine job. Now they are kicking themselves for not listening to me since prices have skyrocketed and even getting the items are difficult.

And there it is.

Schumer: Trump coronavirus response marked by 'towering and dangerous incompetence'

Trump's fault, whatever happens.

Printing money is not going to fix a logistic and supply chain issue. Hopefully this disaster wake up the multi national companies not to use the cheap labor from one nation and have manufacture spread across the entire world including western nations.

Stopped reading after I read this paragraph:
"What we don’t understand, yet in Covid-19 are the absolute transmission dynamics. Look what’s happened in China, we’ve seen a significant drop in cases, huge pressure placed on the virus and a sequential decrease in the number of cases. That goes against the logic of pandemic."

Seems that the WHO is taking China's reportings at face value, which I can't say is the most logical response to the situation.

Well what is very possible is that someone from China will sneak across outrsouthern boarder and that will start it. There have been boatloads of asians that have.

Trump really should declare a State of Emergy and close our boarders for all those not authorized into the U.S. Schumer would shit.

Atrocious spelling aside, this is honestly a very funny idea. I mean, if Schumer said what you said he said before about Trump not doing enough. Frick I'd probably watch 15 minutes of those contortions just for the laughs.

Maybe suggest it to him via Twitter.

I am glad you picked up on my spelling. You put a comma when a semicolon was required (after "aside"). "I mean, if" ..A comma should not be used here. Sentence #2 does not have a predicate or direct object. "Frik" needs a semi colon after it or a new sentence.

But thanks for not answering my question.

Right now it's an option being considered and they are preparing in case the decision is made to go forward.
One day later, and already arriving from LAX.

This is in part NIMBY on my part, I will admit. But there are a lot of more remote bases, some of which have been shuttered, which could house quarantined people and not have constant exposure to 8000 people who come/go into the surrounding communities on a daily basis. And there are existing medical bases, that DO have hospital services in place. Wouldn't that make a better choice?

The plan now, IF someone shows signs, is to THEN transfer them to a hospital. Via bus, ambulance, helicopter? Who gets that hazard pay???

Even for enlisted at Pt. Mugu, they have a very basic medical facility there and then main treatment is dispensed at Port Hueneme, some 12 miles away. And that 12 miles includes the delivery path for all the BMW that come into Port Hueneme
