Just noticed this in Kent while grabbing a quick dinner. Outside of the @UW clinic, a pop-up screening tent. I’m told they’re at all clinics and that people are screened before being allowed in #KOMONews

More cases linked to the 50 year-old lawyer in Westchester.

White Plains doctor and family test positive

https://westfaironline.com/122028/updat ... -positive/
A physician with the Maple Medical Group in White Plains and his wife and four children have tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Business Journal learned on Friday.

Dr. Richard B. Frimer, speaking for the Maple Medical Group that has offices at 143 and 170 Maple Avenue and 30 Davis Ave., said that the practice was notifying its patients and has closed its 30 Davis Ave. and 143 Maple Ave. locations location for sanitizing.

Frimer said the physician had contact with the 50-year-old lawyer from New Rochelle, who was hospitalized several days ago in New York City with the virus. Frimer said the direct contact was on Feb. 22. “Our physician became ill on the night of Feb. 28 and was self-quarantined thereafter,” Frimer told the Business Journal.

“His test came back positive on March 4 and whereupon we’re notifying all of the patients,” Frimer said. He said the physician worked on the top floor at 30 Davis Ave. in White Plains. Frimer said they sent all employees at that office home and have been doing testing of all staff and physicians in conjunction with New York state. At the time of the interview with the Business Journal, he said the results of those tests were pending.
Fear there will be much more of this. Doctors and nurses are at particular risk. :(

Blow for Covid-19 couple hoping to return home from Japan

https://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/new ... ome-japan/
They have been recovering in a Japanese hospital after they were diagnosed with both the virus and pneumonia.

In order to leave the hospital, both need three negative test results. Both had been tested twice previously — and the result had been negative — but during the most recent and final test Mr Abel’s response came back positive.

Mr Abel, who has been filming a YouTube video diary of his experiences, said: “Sally is now negative but is staying in Japan. Sally is now totally all clear, good to return to the UK. But she won’t because I have had a positive. This is what happens.

:snippity:

He added: “They have agreed to allow her to remain here so we can be company for one another. She won’t get reinfected because we have got the same strain. Her immune system is now really well established. So it’s the waiting game.
Although they were on the Diamond Princess, Mr. Abel believes they were infected in Taiwan. He didn't say why he believes that.

Meanwhile in Boston-

Dozens of Biogen employees to be tested for COVID-19 after 4 confirmed cases, 5 presumptive within the company

https://www.boston25news.com/news/3-peo ... UYWQSIX7I/
Five new presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 affecting Biogen employees were announced Friday, according to a release by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The cases include two women and one man from Suffolk County, all in their 40s; and two people form Norfolk County, one woman in her 30s and one man in his 40s. All five people are at their homes.

Biogen said on Thursday and Friday that four employees tested positive for the virus, but they don’t live in Massachusetts. Two employees are from Europe, one is a man from Tennessee and the fourth announced Friday is a man from Indiana.

:snippity:

A two-day “management meeting” was held last week at the Long Wharf Marriott. Approximately 175 employees who attended have been advised to stay home whether they had symptoms or not.

Arrangements are being made to have employees tested for coronavirus on an appointment-only basis. Brigham and Women’s Hospital will help in the testing process and say they’ve activated their central ambulatory screening and testing plan. Patients will be tested outside of the hospital in the ambulance bay.

’You don't want to go to war with a president’

Anthony Fauci might be the one person everyone in Washington trusts right now.

But at 79, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is in the thick of one of the biggest battles of 35 years in the role: The race to contain coronavirus when the nation is deeply polarized and misinformation can spread with one tweet — sometimes, from the president himself.

“You should never destroy your own credibility. And you don't want to go to war with a president,” Fauci, who has been the country’s top infectious diseases expert through a dozen outbreaks and six presidents, told POLITICO in an interview Friday. “But you got to walk the fine balance of making sure you continue to tell the truth.”

And the truth about coronavirus? “I don't think that we are going to get out of this completely unscathed,” he said. “I think that this is going to be one of those things we look back on and say boy, that was bad.”

Yesterday after market close our office was told that we were having tech specialists come into the office in the next few weeks to add firm firewalls and remote access etc to laptops for employees in case we close down the office.

We NEVER close. Blizzards, earthquake etc we are there. But they are seriously considering closing brokerage firm offices. Essential traders have already been moved off Wall Street and into corporate housing in the suburbs. We already aren’t letting outside wholesalers into our office.

In a related note, a friend’s wife does travel/conventions for Marriott and they expect a continued complete setup of business. Lost another a billion of expected revenue. The economy was already slowing. Can you imagine what the loss of tourism and corporate travel could do to the economy not to mention lost revenue in restaurants, malls etc.

We’re back at Life Care Center of Kirkland where in a little less than an hour, we’re expecting to hear from Life Care Center personnel for the first time. We’ll streaming online at komonews.com #KOMONews

Of the 15 deaths in King County, 14 are tied to this facility. The four new deaths today include -

-man in his 70s
-woman in her 70s
-two women in their 80s

Three passed away at @EvergreenHosp and another at @harborviewmc

Ahead of this briefing, this woman says her 79 and 80-year-old parents visited the center a week ago, says her father has a dry cough and that Life Care hasn’t contacted them. She says the person they visited is now in isolation #KOMONews

:snippity:

We’re expecting daily briefings every day at 1 p.m. now. “Numbers are changing quickly,” says staff is limited right now. 180 employees had been working here, 70 are now showing COVID-19 symptoms. 120 residents had been here, 63 in facility now (6 w/ symptoms) #KOMONews

Life Care reporting 15 deaths in hospitals (1 more than what @KCPubHealth put out today) and 11 died on-site. We’re told there’s no info on COVID-19 with that group, waiting to get those results back #KOMONews

There have been ongoing visitations from @CDCgov, rotating in and out. No word on how many people or if that federal “strike team” is here, what its work will consist of #KOMONews

As for staff coming and going day-by-day, we’re simply told they’re following infection control protocol. “We’ve learned that the virus is volatile, unpredictable.” Patients have gone from showing no symptoms to being rushed to the hospital in an hour #KOMONews

As for moving seemingly healthy people out of here, we’re told no one wants to take them be it hospitals or quarantine at homes. “There are not other facilities that are asking to take them...at this point, they’re here” #KOMONews

“Working overtime” to take care of residents. “This is a larger issue than just our facility.” Encouraging anyone who visited to keep in touch with their doctors, no ballpark on how many people may have visited during outbreak #KOMONews

We’ve also learned the first patient was taken out of Life Care on 2/19, unclear when they tested positive for COVID-19. It wasn’t until 2/29 that visitors were turned away, signs of “respiratory outbreak” went up on doors #KOMONews

Italy getting serious.

Italy set to quarantine whole of Lombardy due to coronavirus
Government’s draft decree would impose fines on anyone caught entering or leaving northern region


https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/ ... aly-set-to
The Italian government is to lockdown the northern region of Lombardy, as it battles to contain the spread of the coronavirus. A draft decree would extend the quarantined areas, so-called “red-zones”, ordering people not to enter or leave the region.

The country is grappling to contain Europe’s worst outbreak of Covid-19, which has claimed 233 lives and infected a total of 5,883 people.

Italian authorities announced that a new decree containing draconian measures would be approved later on Saturday. It will include the power to impose fines on anyone caught entering or leaving Lombardy, the worst-affected region, until 3 April. People may be allowed in and out for serious reasons.

Rome is also considering prolonging the closure of schools across the country until 3 April, while major sporting events, such as Serie A football games, will be played behind closed doors.

BREAKING: "The American Conservative Union has learned that one of our CPAC attendees has unfortunately tested positive today for coronavirus."
5:15 PM

ACU adds that "this attendee had no interaction with the President or the Vice President and never attended the events in the main hall."

More: "The Trump Administration is aware of the situation, and we will continue regular communication with all appropriate government officials."

Over 19,000 people attended CPAC last year, and 2020 also had a similar crowd.
