UC Davis student showing 'mild symptoms' of coronavirus. 3 roommates in isolation

Source: Sacramento Bee

A student living in a dormitory at UC Davis has shown “mild symptoms” of coronavirus and has been placed in isolation, along with two other students living in the dorm, Yolo County and university officials said Thursday.

The student has a runny nose and a cough after potentially being exposed to someone with coronavirus, officials said. The individual is in isolation at a home off campus. The two other individuals in isolation are the student’s roommates and are not showing signs of the virus.

Officials declined to say whether the three are in isolation in Davis. They are isolating “out of an abundance of caution,” according to a university press release. The Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta is testing the student’s specimen for the virus and results are expected back in three to four days.

The news comes after a patient at the UC Davis Medical Center tested positive for the virus, making the patient the nation’s first confirmed case of the coronavirus from “exposure in the community.” UC Davis Medical Center is located in Sacramento.

Why does it take 3-4 days to get test results?

1. Not a coincidence !!! Occam's razor...

"A student living in a dormitory at UC Davis has shown “mild symptoms” of coronavirus and has been placed in isolation, along with two other students living in the dorm, Yolo County and university officials said Thursday."

AND

"The news comes after a patient at the UC Davis Medical Center tested positive for the virus, making the patient the nation’s first confirmed case of the coronavirus from “exposure in the community.” UC Davis Medical Center is located in Sacramento."

2. Yup. That's why the CDC did not want infected evacuees going to nearby Travis AFB

But the CDC got overruled after Tennessee Republican Rep. Roe pulled some string for his doctor constituent who was a Diamond Princess passenger who had gotten infected. https://www.democraticunderground.com/100213025292


This is our new reality.

4. Impeach Roe.

Seriously, what strings did Roe have to pull to direct this to another state?
