CDC forces Regal Princess to remain offshore near South Florida until 2 crew members are tested for coronavirus
Crew members previously served on Grand Princess


https://www.local10.com/news/local/2020 ... ronavirus/
Another Princess cruise ship is under the coronavirus microscope, and this one is located off the coast of South Florida.

The Regal Princess was supposed to dock at Port Everglades early Sunday morning, but those plans have been put on hold due to a couple of crew members that may have been exposed to coronavirus.

According to a letter obtained by Local 10 News, passengers aboard the Regal Princess were informed that the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requested information on two crew members who previously served on the Grand Princess, which has had several confirmed cases of coronavirus on board.

:snippity:

The letter given to Regal Princess passengers states that those crew members “are past the understood maximum incubation of COVID-19 and are asymptomatic.” It also states they “received a precautionary screening by the Medical Staff upon boarding Regal Princess to test for respiratory symptoms, including fever.”
Passengers arriving at Port Everglades on Sunday morning with plans to sail on the Regal Princess are being told that their cruise has been cancelled.

Wary of Trump, Netanyahu Overrules Health Ministry on U.S. Coronavirus Quarantine
Shocking those aware of officials' opinion on coronavirus, PM pulls back on requiring Israelis returning from U.S. to self-quarantine, and political considerations may have had a role


https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.pr ... -1.8640567
News had been leaking out from Health Ministry officials Sunday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s associates had pressured them to walk back any quarantine planned for Israelis returning from the three hardest-hit U.S. states. The prime minister began pivoting to the more sweeping strategy that would quarantine all overseas travelers.

But Netanyahu pulled back from making either move, deciding, instead, not to decide.

Sunday’s standstill hurt the government’s credibility as it insisted that public health, not politics, was the sole consideration when it came to fighting the outbreak of the disease. Another sign that political considerations had begun to play a role in the restrictions was the fact that the large number of Israelis returning from the AIPAC convention in Washington D.C. were not being required to self-quarantine, even after the finding that three people at the conference – which was attended by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and a long list of senators and congressmen – had been diagnosed with the virus.

In a morning radio interview, Tourism Minister Yariv Levin was the first official to publicly admit that politics and diplomacy played a role in such decision-making when it came to the U.S., saying that “the relationship is especially sensitive, and when we make decisions regarding the United States, it is in coordination, and we won’t take any unilateral steps.”

It's a cruel twist of fate for the MAGA crowd that they seem to be the most at-risk. We know Felito's a handsy guy, it's everywhere. Maybe all IMPOTUS supporters should just be quarantined just to be careful.

Now it's TWO lawmakers: Add the loathsome Paul Gosar to the self-quarantine. Gosar is pals with Laura Loomer who was there... he endorsed her. Loomer takes care of her fans. And Jr....

Jr Loomer.JPG
Laura Loomer, anti-Muslim activist who is pursuing a bid for Congress in Florida, was spotted around CPAC touting her ​campaign. Last year, Loomer had her media credentials revoked and was removed from CPAC after harassing journalists in the media filing center​; this year ​she donned standard attendee credentials.

Loomer should have kept the duct tape ON!

And if she's infected, Laura Loomer brought the disease to... West Palm Beach, FL where IMPOTUS is right now.

The CPAC attendee who tested positive for coronavirus was infected before the conference at Maryland‘s National Harbor. The American Conservative Union, which puts on CPAC, said on Saturday that the individual was tested at a New Jersey hospital and quarantined in that state.

Rep. Paul Gosar, a Republican of Arizona, is also under self-quarantine, along with three of his senior staff, after "sustained contact" with the affected individual at CPAC, the Arizona Republican tweeted Sunday. Gosar said although he and his staff members "feel great," they are being proactive and cautious. His office will be closed for the week.

This is a hell of a turn in the story. And here's IMPOTUS telling people go to work, don't worry about it, it's a hoax... :lol: Let's see how brave the GOP will be this week.

People are saying this was the plan all along.... IMPOTUS and the Clintons planned this so they could literally kill the GOP. /foil

New story from WaPo:
Coronavirus case at CPAC brings outbreak closer to Trump, threatening to upend his routine amid reelection bid
By Toluse Olorunnipa, Josh Dawsey and Juliet Eilperin March 8, 2020 at 10:28 p.m. EDT

A growing sense of concern and uncertainty about the reach of the novel coronavirus has begun to take hold in the White House, after an attendee at a recent political conference where President Trump spoke tested positive for covid-19, the disease caused by the virus. Trump was photographed shaking hands with Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, who confirmed that he had been in direct contact with the infected man during the Conservative Political Action Conference last month. The handshake at CPAC put Trump just two degrees of separation away from the virus that he has sought to minimize as it has rocked financial markets and tested his leadership skills. While the White House has maintained that Trump was never in direct contact with the infected person and does not have any symptoms, the potential close call at a political event underscores how the outbreak threatens to upend the president’s routine as he campaigns for reelection.

There is growing tension among Trump administration officials, who now view the rapidly spreading outbreak as a black swan event that could consume the president’s fourth year in office, even as Trump remains reluctant to see much cause for concern, according to White House officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the internal mood. “I’m not concerned at all,” Trump said Saturday when asked about the potential threat posed to the White House by the coronavirus. He also pledged to keep holding “tremendous” political rallies, even as top public health officials within his government have called for millions of Americans to avoid large crowds and major events to reduce the risk of being infected. White House officials have said they expect the outbreak to spread significantly throughout the country in the coming days, dominating headlines and limiting the president’s ability to maintain his typical routine.
Sekrit Stuffs!
As Trump spent part of the weekend playing golf in West Palm Beach, Fla., top officials met in the Situation Room in what has become a daily briefing and strategy session amid the growing crisis. The number of confirmed U.S. coronavirus cases has begun to rapidly increase in recent days, surpassing 500. One senior administration official said they expected that number to double by Tuesday. Others said they expected a surge in new cases that could strain the administration’s capabilities. Concerns for the president’s personal health have also escalated as the death toll from the virus has risen, with most of the victims being senior citizens. Trump’s personal doctor, Sean Conley, now attends some White House meetings on the coronavirus, tracking where new cases are being reported, one official said.

The White House is also being cleaned more regularly and people with flu-like symptoms are being urged not to come into the complex, with the added warning that they may infect the leader of the free world, officials said. Changes to Trump’s travel schedule are also being contemplated, after public health officials warned that elderly Americans should reconsider flying on airplanes and avoid large crowds. Trump, 73, had no campaign rallies scheduled as of Sunday evening, marking the first time this year that there were no such events on the books. Repeatedly visiting large crowds at political events could pose risks to the president, said Saskia Popescu, an epidemiologist with Honor Health, a Phoenix hospital system. “Any time you’re coming into contact with a lot of people and engaging in handshaking and close contact, yes, you are more potentially at risk,” she said. The White House said Saturday that Trump had not had any contact with the infected person at CPAC, and Trump’s campaign said that the president would hold additional rallies when he was ready.

Trump is eager to hold more rallies and has been frustrated that the outbreak has dominated the news cycle, according to senior administration officials. The president has lashed out at Democrats for criticizing his handling of the crisis and repeatedly urged Americans not to be too concerned, while downplaying the seriousness of covid-19. Schlapp said he had been in touch with administration officials throughout the weekend after learning that coronavirus was present at the conference many of them attended. “What we’ve ascertained from having literally thousands of interactions with attendees and people associated with the conference and government officials is there is no indication of any sick people or new cases,” he said. “To date, this seems extremely isolated with one sick person.”

Schlapp confirmed that he had personally interacted with the infected man, whose name has not been released, early in the four-day conference. He greeted Trump, Vice President Pence and several other senior administration officials after what he described as a brief interaction with the infected attendee. Schlapp said he used hand sanitizer regularly during the conference and had not had any symptoms before or after shaking hands with Trump. He said he has been in touch with his own doctor and with the infected patient, who is being quarantined in New Jersey.
***
The inconsistent messaging is driven in part by a president who has been reluctant to acknowledge the scope of the crisis facing the country. Some of Trump’s conservative allies have also spent weeks playing down the threat of the outbreak, including many who attended the CPAC event. Trump’s outgoing acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, used his remarks at the event to urge Americans to turn off the television, arguing that there was too much coverage of the coronavirus. Other CPAC attendees, including Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and media host Sean Hannity, have also mocked the level of concern over the virus. Such comments have faded as the virus has spread to more than 30 states, killing at least 21 people.

Schlapp, who has reached out to many CPAC attendees to inform them of potential risks posed by the coronavirus case at the conference, said he wants to move away from the “hot rhetoric” about the outbreak and focus on bipartisan solutions. “I’m hoping that this is a time when the donkey and the elephant can work together,” he said, referring to the symbols representing Democrats and Republicans. One of the most difficult questions facing lawmakers and the Trump administration is whether they will be willing to financially support large-scale school or business closures. While these steps could curb the virus’s spread, according to experts, they could lead to major economic and social disruptions. And for Trump, it would mark a sharp departure from how he’s approached the outbreak so far.

Scott Gottlieb, who headed the Food and Drug Administration between May 2017 and April 2019, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that policymakers needed to provide generous funding to state and local governments immediately so they could take more drastic measures to limit Americans’ exposure to the disease. “Well, I think no state and no city wants to be the first to basically shut down their economy,” Gottlieb said, referring to Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s (D) reluctance to say whether he’s willing to impose a mandatory quarantine in affected areas such as Seattle. “But that’s what’s going to need to happen. States and cities are going to have to act in the interest of the national interest right now to prevent a broader epidemic.” Gottlieb, who said that he is “still having discussions with people in the administration,” emphasized that federal officials would have to provide economic incentives to get state and local officials to undertake such measures.

BREAKING from me & @AlexNBCNews : Members of Congress are becoming increasingly anxious about coronavirus and there is growing pressure on leadership to take steps to protect lawmakers — even potentially recessing for a period of weeks, according to two Democratic sources
Multiple sources tell NBC News anxiety is on the rise among lawmakers as more cases are reported and the disease spreads Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, announced late Sunday he will self-quarantine after shaking hands with a CPAC attendee who is now hospitalized with COVID19.

And Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., is also self-quarantining after close contact with the CPAC attendee, as are several members of his senior staff. Gosar is closing his Washington office for the week.

“Members are very nervous,” a senior Democratic leadership aide said.
