In the last five years, Republicans increased funding to
@NIH
And
@CDCgov
, and we created the Infectious Disease Rapid Response Reserve Fund.

We have been preparing for a time such as this.

I have now spoken to a number of people who were in/around the green room at CPAC when the attendee with coronavirus was there.

People are apoplectic about how they have not been better informed of what happened.

The attendee was there for much of Thursday at LEAST...

The reason I am tweeting this: I have been flu-sick unwell for the past week and now I am finding out there are people I was in direct contact with who were in direct contact with the infected.

And yes, I know who it was.
Everyone at the CPAC Shabbat dinner should be checked.

The attendee was there.
Furthermore, the attendee may have been in/around the green room just after the Vice President was present.

If Ted Cruz came into contact, and so did Paul Gosar, that places the gentleman in the green room between 1pm and 5pm.
I now know that Rep. Gosar met the person and within the next hour I was shaking Gosar's hand across the street.

GREAT.

(I've been down with the "flu" for the past week).

Here are some of the other people who may have been in the green room on Thursday afternoon at the same time as the CPAC #coronavirus infectee:

- Rep Louie Gohmert;
- Ronna McDaniel
- Michael Knowles
- Kay James
- KellyAnne Conway
- Betsy Devos
- Rep Matt Gaetz
- Diamond/Silk

In order to have been at CPAC Shabbat, the individual would have had to be have been present on the Friday, too.
BTW the list of above people who MAY have been in/around the green room is the basic list of CPAC speakers who were around that area at the time.

From here:
CPAC 2020 | Agenda
The full CPAC 2020 Agenda is now available. View it now.
https://cpac.conservative.org/agenda/

Some other information circulating right now is that there were actually TWO people at CPAC infected.

They may be the SAME people as the AIPAC guests.

They shared a room throughout CPAC.

This was just text to me from a high profile CPAC attendee:

"Went to doc today, VA. Referred to health dept if I want a test for COVID-19. Doc told me health dept won’t give tests without full name of the person diagnosed that you came into contact with. Symptoms irrelevant."

At the time being this may be a sensible request, eg as long as the test kits are a rare item. Naming a real known contact raises the probability for an infection and may be a serious reason to use the resources.

Unless you were definitely in a large group at the same time as a confirmed case was. I rarely know the names of every guest at large gatherings. Sitting at a ballgame in row X, in seats Y and Z, and it's reported that the 2 guys sitting directly behind you in row W, in seats Y and Z are positive, chances are you'd have no idea what their names are.

Georgia officials preparing part of state park for coronavirus patient isolation

https://www.wsav.com/news/coronavirus/g ... itter_WSAV
Governor Brian Kemp announced Monday that officials have designated Hard Labor Creek State Park in Morgan County as a possible location for the isolation and monitoring of patients who may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

Hard Labor Creek State Park is a 5,804 acre park located about 50 miles outside of Atlanta.

Kemp said in a release that an isolated section of the park will hold emergency trailers and operations and will be separate from the rest of the property.

State officials from the Departments of Public Health, Public Safety, and Natural Resources, along with team members from the Governor’s office are currently working together to prepare the park for the possible placement of patients. Seven emergency trailers have already been delivered and installed. Related materials are on the way.

FDA warns companies selling products that claim to treat coronavirus disease

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-heal ... ce=twitter
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on Monday issued warning letters to seven companies for selling products that claim to prevent, treat or cure COVID-19 caused by the new coronavirus.

The health agency said such products may cause consumers to delay or stop from reaching out for appropriate medical care, leading to serious and life-threatening harm.

“There already is a high level of anxiety over the potential spread of coronavirus,” said FTC Chairman Joe Simons.

:snippity:

The FDA and FTC jointly issued reut.rs/3cJIiLO warning letters to Vital Silver, Quinessence Aromatherapy Ltd, Xephyr LLC doing business as N-Ergetics, GuruNanda LLC, Vivify Holistic Clinic, Herbal Amy LLC, and The Jim Bakker Show.

I don't think anyone from the Grand Princess has died or will die (hoping, hoping, hoping, fingers crossed tightly) but that video feels like a funeral procession.

I’ve seen little news of Russia’s cases. They report 20. They’re on the border of Iran. The number seems light.
There have been 20 cases of coronavirus infections reported in Russia so far.

There are four people on the dock talking to ship's crew members standing in what I take to be a gangway hatch. No one else on the dock. No vehicles but for the two the four people came in.
