With 3 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Maryland it seems that DC will be impacted soon

as it spreads. I wonder what the implications might be when the Capital is shut down & will we even notice?

Gov. Larry Hogan said Maryland's Public Health Laboratory in Baltimore has confirmed the first three cases of novel coronavirus in the state.

Republicans lean into Biden probe as he surges in Democratic primary

Source: Polititcal

Just hours after Joe Biden surged to the top of the Democratic presidential pack, Senate Republicans announced a new phase of their investigation targeting the former vice president and his son Hunter.
Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told reporters on Wednesday that he is likely to release an interim report within one to two months on his panel’s probe of Hunter Biden’s ties to a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma.

“These are questions that Joe Biden has not adequately answered,” Johnson said. “And if I were a Democrat primary voter, I’d want these questions satisfactorily answered before I cast my final vote.”

Johnson insisted that the timing of his probe has nothing to do with the election calendar. But the renewed focus on Biden, coinciding with his surge to frontrunner status, has alarmed House Democrats as they brace for an all-out GOP assault on Biden and his son over an issue that was litigated at length during President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.

HHS whistleblower claims US workers received coronavirus evacuees without proper precautions

Source: CNN

(CNN)A whistleblower at the Department of Health and Human Services is seeking federal protection after complaining that more than a dozen workers who received the first Americans evacuated from Wuhan, China, lacked proper training or protective gear for coronavirus infection control.

"We are hopeful that Congress and the OSC will investigate this case in a timely and comprehensive manner," Ari Wilkenfeld, a lawyer for the whistleblower, told CNN. "This matter concerns HHS's response to the coronavirus, and its failure to protect its employees and potentially the public. The retaliatory efforts to intimidate and silence our client must be opposed."

The Washington Post was first to report on the complaint and cited a redacted complaint obtained from lawyers alleges that HHS staff were "improperly deployed" and "were not properly trained or equipped to operate in a public health emergency situation." The whistleblower also alleges she was unfairly reassigned after raising concerns.

For those who may need reminding, calling any of our candidates a communist or insinuating

that any are communists is right out of the fascist GOP handbook & only helps tRrump, not your candidate.

Remember this tweet from tRump about President Obama's Ebola czar?

This lifelong con artist won't be happy until he kills every American, I don't consider anyone in the criminal republican party an American.

For the second time in my life I will be voting for Bernie Sanders in a presidential primary

He is my choice to run for president of the United States. I have followed Senator Sanders for over a decade, had brunch with Bernie every Friday for almost 10 years via the TH show. Everything he is passionate about I am also. I was going to hold out a little longer, Warren was my very close second choice, but I will be voting soon & have made my choice, I believe Bernie is the force we need, not only to beat the fascists but to begin to undue the damage fascism has done to this country.

Watched Laurie Garrett, author of The Coming Plague, on Maddow talking about Covid 19

had enough of the divisive debate & damn, the news is even worse than I thought. She thinks this could be as bad as the 1918 flu pandemic. By the way, I thought it was interesting that she didn't shake hands, only does fist bumps.

The US is telling Americans with pre-existing conditions to avoid trips to Italy

Source: Business Insider

The Center for Disease Control issued a travel warning for Italy, after more then 200 cases of the novel COVID-19 were discovered in the northern region of the country.

At least six people have died from the virus. The CDC issued a level 2 warning, urging Americans who are "high risk travellers" to reconsider "non-essential" travel. Older individuals or those pre-existing conditions should try and avoid travel to the country.

Additionally, while the CDC is not recommending an entire ban on travel, it does encourage travelers to avoid people who are sick and wash their hands for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer more frequently.

New predictions from a Harvard professor is that up to 70% of the worlds population will get Covid, Mainly because, like the flu, 10-15% who get it have no symptoms making it harder to contain. It seems that the elderly & those with chronic diseases are most at risk.

Ok, putin & tRump have really stirred things up on DU the last few days, their cyber war seems to be

working as planned, create party division, undercut the top candidates, help tRump steal 4 more years. But, I believe those here with hurt feelings, who fell for the propaganda will take a time out, looks at the big picture, who is the real enemy & vote & support whomever becomes our nominee.
