    She could give me the Coronavirus anytime. Beautiful woman. So calm as she should be. I hope she's all better... her hubby too.

    Reporter needed to delve into more questions of treatment & asking this girl to retrace her and her husband's steps on how or where she think she contracted disease.
    Also, he was right next to her and never contacted virus - why?
    Those are the types of questions that need asked and researched.

  • Dani Clark

    If they dont know what this virus is, how do they know someone even technically has the virus - if a cough and/or fever are the only symptoms, which as they say mimic a cold or flu?
    And since she is in the hospital- what is the "treatment " she is receiving if they dont know or have a vaccine to treat it?!
    What parameters are used to say she is "clear" and can leave.
    And if they can say she is clear to leave, is the "treatment " she rcvd being used on others to contain the spread of the virus?
    They keep saying these people are being treated, and are ok to leave quarantine, but the virus is still spreading- I AM concerned & confused 😐

    MC_DJ DOUBLE EDGE 20 hours ago

    They're not telling us the truth. They are creating a narrative that allows the rounding up of citizens pretending they are infected with no signs of infection. They just pick the targets and round them up, news will follow the planned narrative, and people will not question it. They will just say...YUP THEY MUST BE INFECTED.. and they will be relieved they are taken out of society.

    More mainstream programming to distract and deceive, IMO. Whilst this embeds itself in every nation. Inaction is what is needed, trade and travel to cease. Voluntary quarantine for a month, shut everything down. All service people hazmat protection. Drop the infection rate to as close to zero as possible.

    Nothing to see here, alls fine and dandy. Just ignore the videos of people collapsing at work, walking, hospitals, or the lines of bodies in bags outside of shop residences, ready for collection and cremation. This is growing exponentially around the world while we watch these fluffy articles, not actually what appears to be going on. And a 14 day quarantine? Who plucked this out of whose butt, with a supposedly unknown virus?

    She should read my book, "Chilly Megapolis". A lot of this is sounding familiar.

    I think the world has already heard from someone with the coronavirus, a young doctor whistleblower who helped to warn the world, was arrested, and finally died of this virus. In Wuhan.

    I think a corona virus kit could be sold at CVS, Dollar Tree, Walgreens and local markets around the world instead of assuming people aren’t infected

    China: Oh? You want the real statistics of deaths, infected, and quarantine? Well let just get that for you, I have it here annnnnnndd... it's gone!
    Public: What?where is it?
    China: All gone.
    Public: Hey, where did those patients go I saw 2 minutes ago, there were like 20 here I just sa-
    China: Gone.

    I’m British, and I think it’s disgusting they’ve kept everyone on board as long as they have. Individual countries have their own systems in place for dealing with this. Two Brits at least are infected only because they were not allowed to be brought home. How many other people have been unnecessarily infected?!

    If she isn't infected Thank God.
    If she is I believe when they took her from her room to the hospital maybe she got infected there or somewhere in the ship.
    Like those who went into the airplane who were INFECTED before getting results and make all the people set together with a mask that was wrong each person should be separated from others to not get infected period ☑️
