🦠 Reporters FLIPPED out when Delco officials didn’t help hype up coronavirus situation

Reporters were left scrambling to find answers Friday when officials didn’t entertain the idea of worrying locals into believing the coronavirus will result in an apocalypse, Your Content can report. Instead, the news conference raised the biggest question imaginable: Is there really anything to fear?

The outbursts exploded just after 1:30 p.m. in Delaware County when authorities held a news conference noting that the lone potential coronavirus patient was doing just fine under voluntary home quarantine. The patient must remain quarantined for approximately 14 days.

‘Can you at least tell us what part of the county this case is in and the industry this person works in? Don’t you think releasing that type of information is in the public’s interest?’ screamed one reporter, who sparked a questionnaire from fellow competitors.

A second reporter then interrogated the officials in hope of landing an exclusive: ‘So this person did have contact with other people in Delaware County and the CDC and the state department of health are trying to get to those people right now?’

‘The person must’ve seen someone I mean they’ve talked to someone in Delaware County correct? And they could’ve infected them?’ the reporter quirked.

‘You’re making a supposition there – what we’re saying is that the person is in isolation and were following the protocols required by the Pennsylvania dept of health and the CDC,’ Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer said. ‘That’s the right thing to do at this time.’

A slick angle which a third reporter pitched: ‘You folks said you are tracking in this county, contact, correct? It’s not unreasonable then to know that this person who had this confirmed case this adult female whose now quarantined did have contact with folks in Delaware county because now the dept of health is now trying to trace them, speak to them and see if they are infected is that right?’

‘They’re trying to confirm that fact.’ Stollsteimer repeated.

First Place for Most Bizarre Coronavirus Question: ‘What steps is the county taking to protect shoppers at Home Goods from the coronavirus spread?’

‘The same prevention is public awareness. The public’s role in preventing this is common sense. If you are a person likely to get ill from the flu and suffer severe consequences you need to restrict travel,’ said Tim Boyce, Director of Delaware County Emergency Services.

Director Boyce noted the county activated their infection disease protocols to take proactive measures over SIX weeks ago.

‘It seems that could increase panic if people don’t know where it’s located.’ said another sneak, trying to pry information out of authorities despite the fragile situation.

‘Delaware County emergency service community is ahead of this outbreak. That community affected is being contacted. We are urging all of the public to just be prudent in dealing with large crowds. Keep your hands clean. If you feel ill report to your doctor or a clinic. You do not necessarily need to use the emergency services or the 911 system unless it’s an urgent emergency,’ Director Boyce continued.

When asked for the 23rd time where the patient was residing, Director Boyce replied: ‘We cannot identify the person. The Department of Health has that information and it is entirely their information and has that information we do not have it to release to the public.’

‘We have been ahead of this. We’re in communications with our schools, colleges and universities. The district attorney is going to help us in any way possible to protect our law enforcement and to make sure we’re able to respond along with health officials,’ declared Director Boyce.

Just to ease the tension surrounding the sticky situation, what major media outlets failed to report is that most of the biodiversity on the planet is actually found in viruses. Since 2016, scientists have discovered hundreds of thousands of new virus species in the oceans alone.

There are more viruses in one liter of coastal seawater than there are human beings on the planet. Think about that the next time you accidentally swallow a mouthful while swimming at the beach.

Just the other day, in fact, a whole new class of viruses was discovered. Larger than other known viruses, and containing bacterial proteins, they have blurred the line between living and dead even more when it comes to viruses. 

The recent widespread outbreak of the respiratory disease stemmed from a novel coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in 60 locations internationally, including in the United States.

Those who have recently traveled to China are at the greatest risk of contracting the deadly virus.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.

During the week of February 23, CDC reported community spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 in California (in two places), Oregon and Washington. Community spread in Washington resulted in the first death in the United States from COVID-19, as well as the first reported case of COVID-19 in a health care worker, and the first potential outbreak in a long-term care facility.

The CDC affirms that there are ongoing investigations to learn more. This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available.

How will the coronavirus impact my community?

More cases of the coronavirus are likely to be identified in the coming days, according to the CDC. That includes a rapid increase in cases in the United States. It’s also likely that person-to-person spread will continue to occur, including in communities in the United States. It’s likely that at some point, widespread transmission of the coronavirus in the United States will occur.

Widespread transmission of the coronavirus would translate into large numbers of people needing medical care at the same time. Schools, childcare centers, workplaces, and other places for mass gatherings may experience more absenteeism. Public health and healthcare systems may become overloaded, with elevated rates of hospitalizations and deaths. Other critical infrastructure, such as law enforcement, emergency medical services, and transportation industry may also be affected. Health care providers and hospitals may be overwhelmed. At this time, there is no vaccine to protect against the coronavirus and no medications approved to treat it. Nonpharmaceutical interventions would be the most important response strategy.
