    Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart, Ben McAdams are first lawmakers to announce testing positive for coronavirus
    Last Update 8 hours ago

    “Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., on Wednesday became the first member of Congress to announce that he has tested positive for coronavirus, saying he had been stricken with a fever and headache this weekend.

    Shortly afterward, Rep. Ben McAdams, D-Utah, said he too had tested positive after developing "mild cold-like symptoms" Sunday evening. The 45-year-old told constituents he first learned the test result Wednesday.”

    [...]

    “Fox News has obtained the letter sent from the Office of the Attending Physician at the Capitol to lawmakers late Wednesday. "It reflects the pace of the COVID-19 disease throughout the United States and its presence here in Washington, D.C. that it has touched the community of the U.S. Capitol," the letter, written by Dr. Brian Monahan, concludes.”

    [...]

    “The virus already had affected others on Capitol Hill, which has remained closed to visitors. At least two congressional staffers have been infected by the virus, and some prominent politicians have self-quarantined at both the state and federal levels.”


    • Again, none of these politicians seemed to learn anything from all the other infected politicians that came before the US. Moo

    Not great news= Gov. finally admitting , maybe lack of testing is a problem. DUH.
    He gave a press conf. yesterday- 1 hr. 11 min,
    to say, not enough tests, no components (swabs and chemicals) to complete test, too few PPE for
    health care workers.
    Spring breakers still crowding beaches in many areas. Some towns closing beaches but it's hit or miss.
    St. Patrick's Day bars and pubs going full bore
    in many cities despite Gov. closing them down at 5 pm. No enforcement. Videos online show crowded bars, young people hanging over others.
    6 yr. old boy now is positive.
    over 100 new cases in last day, one more death,
    now 8.
    My trip to Publix showed NO ONE (except me)
    had masks or gloves. Even cashiers.
    No bread products, little meat, lots of empty shelves.
    Cashier said reason for poor deliveries was the
    'gubmint' closing down truckers sleeping areas
    along the hwys. Trucking problem caused by others. Food shortage caused by "greedy" shoppers according to bag girl.
    Reality hasn't hit Florida yet.
    Orlando Mayor said yesterday all area hospitals are at capacity with respiratory and
    pneumonia cases. Can't test for above reasons.
    3 off site drive up test centers are coming in next week or so. Again no tests and people must qualify to get tested.
    It's an un-coordinated mess with no planning here. Just react, after the fact.

    Florida reports 112 new coronavirus cases as governor laments lack of testing

    BBC:
    Dozens of Tube stations to shut over coronavirus
    29 minutes ago

    “Up to 40 stations on the London Underground network are to be shut as the city attempts to reduce the effect of the coronavirus outbreak.

    Transport for London (TfL) announced there would be a partial shutdown of the network from Thursday morning.

    Additionally, there will be no night Tube and bus services will also be reduced, it said.

    The move comes after Boris Johnson said the virus was spreading faster in London than other parts of the UK.

    Latest government figures show there have been more than 900 confirmed cases of coronavirus in London and 34 people have died in the city.”

    The rush for sanitizer should ease with so many required to stay home, imo. Soap & water remain the best, per experts.

    Coronavirus world live updates

    Italy appears on track to surpass China's coronavirus death toll - a gruesome milestone that is being blamed on the country’s large elderly population, its overwhelmed health care system and the delayed imposition of a complete lockdown in its worst-hit Lombardy region.
