Meanwhile, Trump has declared a national emergency over the outbreak as public life in America continues to grind to a halt.

Brazilian diplomat Nestor Forster, who dined with Donald Trump last weekend, has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a tweet from the Embassy of Brazil in Washington, D.C., on Friday.

“Brazil’s Chargé d’Affaires Ambassador Nestor Forster has learned tonight that he has tested positive for Covid-19,” the statement read. “Following medical advice, Amb. Forster will extend his self-quarantine, which he had already placed himself into as a precautionary measure, for another two weeks.”

The ambassador dined with Trump, 73, and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro during a visit to the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, on Saturday, according to the Palm Beach Daily News.

covered Typhoid Mary, she seemed like many of these people I am seeing breaking quarantine.

11. Crazy, I can't imagine being her back then, I doubt the public

had ever heard of anything like that. Wasn't she an immigrant, Irish? I imagine they had a healthy distrust of those with authority.

17. Reading about it is a big story. Finding her was part the development of epidemiology ...

and the Public Health Services in NYC.

She was an immigrant and she was known as a very good cook and especially a good baker known for her cream pies. She would lick the knife when slicing them and this how she spread the disease. Until she was identified scientists did not know one could carry the disease and be asymptomatic. It had to with where the disease sets up in a person's body. Washing hands after using the "facilities" and its importance to disease control was another discovery.

Its worth looking it up and reading all of it during your downtime this coronavirus season.

18. I had never heard that about her licking the knife.

No wonder she thought they were lying or after her, I didn't realize she was the very first one. Kind of makes me feel a little bad for her. In the Knick and a few other portrayals of her, they really play up the hand washing aspect. Her story is very interesting.

20. I do feel bad for her, but she also had a stubborn streak a mile wide ...

she was released a couple of times and told to stay away from kitchens and food. And she wouldn't do it, she felt she had no part in the epidemic.

29. I thought they were coveted jobs? I watched a documentary

on the people Downton Abby was based on, it was very interesting, in some instances they were loved like family. Of course that is England, probably very different.

36. Compare to the Biogen Cluster

which was 3 cases on March 6. A week later 82 cases. Now 94. From a 175-person meeting on Feb 26-27. (plus the contacts of people who were at the meeting.)

So about 2 weeks after the party should be the time to watch for his circle to drop from sight.

27. tRump properties have had bedbugs. Chinese visitor was carrying bugging equipment


A year or two ago (time flies) a Chinese woman was found at Mar-a-Lago on dubious pretenses with sophisticated electronic equipment. She was taken into custody and later deported.

tRump Doral had bedbugs in recent years.

13. Repubs have been playing Russian roulette and narcissistic Trump doesn't care

since they knew before the Mar a Lago events that Repubs had been exposed at CPAC and even after knowing their exposure at Mar a Lago he has no concern about others and has continued shaking hands everywhere, even at yesterdays presser. All that matters to him is that he is not sick.

16. Poe

And now was acknowledged the presence of the Red Death. He had come like a thief in the night. And one by one dropped the revelers in the blood-bedewed halls of their revel, and died each in the despairing posture of his fall. And the life of the ebony clock went out. And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held unlimited dominion over all.

But Covid's like the honey badger: it don't care.
