Woman Who Recovered from Coronavirus Pleads: ‘America Don’t Panic’

A Seattle woman who recovered from the coronavirus has a message for America: “Don’t panic”!



A Seattle woman who recovered from the coronavirus has a message for America: “Don’t panic”!

Elizabeth Schneider, 37, was diagnosed with the virus in February and treated herself from home.

She reports having contracted the sickness at a party late in February. Three days after the party she began showing symptoms, she told Agence France-Presse.

“I woke up and I was feeling tired, but it was nothing more than what you normally feel when you have to get up and go to work, and I had been very busy the previous weekend,” the 37-year-old told the news service.

Schneider added that by the middle of the day she had a headache, fever, and body aches. She said all she could do was go to bed.

But when she woke up, she said she had a 103 degree fever.

“And at that point, I started to shiver uncontrollably, and I was getting the chills and getting tingling in my extremities, so that was a little concerning,” she told the wire service.

The ordeal lasted a few days before it began to abate.

It wasn’t long before she began hearing news of the spread of the coronavirus. Then she found out five others at the party had it, too.

Schneider quickly enrolled in a medical testing program to help doctors combat the virus.

But her main reason for talking to the AFP was to tell people not to panic.

“The message is don’t panic,” she said. “If you think that you have it, you probably do; you should probably get tested.”

“I think a lot of people are contracting this virus and not really realizing it,” she added.

NY Governor Cuomo No Longer Satisfied with CDC Coronavirus Guidelines

Is New York’s situation really that unique?



New York City has quickly become one of, if not the most infected city in the world in terms of COVID-19 cases, and that has put local authorities in a very peculiar situation.

The population density of The Big Apple, along with the city’s notorious hustle and bustle, have combined to make the highly contagious coronavirus an omnipresent nightmare for those on the ground.  Hospitals are growing ever more crowded, and healthcare heroes are exhausting themselves…and we haven’t likely seen the worst of it yet.

For those on the ground, the experience appears to be harrowing, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has even suggested that CDC’s guidelines could be abandoned in favor of a New York-specific set of recommendations.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday that his state is considering bucking Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for personal protective equipment (PPE) in crisis situations that he said is worrying some health care professionals.

The comments during a Saturday press conference came after the governor went out of his way Friday to emphasize his state’s need for tens of thousands of ventilators after President Trump questioned the number that New York would need to deal with its coronavirus patients.

Then came the question of the CDC guidance.

“There is a concern among health care professionals because the CDC guidelines suggest a different protocol for PPE and masks depending on the condition,” Cuomo said. “And apparently there is a crisis set of guidelines that the CDC puts out for … how often you change your gown, how often you change your mask, etc. in a crisis. And the CDC has put those crisis guidelines in place and many health care professionals are concerned that those guidelines do not adequately protect the nurses and the doctors and the health care staff that are working on this issue.”

Cuomo continued: “[Commissioner of Health] Dr. [Howard] Zucker is looking at that. If we believe the CDC guidelines do not protect health care professionals, we will put our own guidelines in place.”

Cuomo and President Trump have repeatedly butted heads on the subject of the coronavirus, and the tension has even led some Democrats to openly call for Cuomo to usurp Joe Biden as the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

Florida Governor Installs Road Blocks to Keep Louisianans in Louisiana




As social distancing measures continue to be mocked online, particularly by the younger generations, state and local authorities are being forced to draw a hard line in the sand.

You see, the only way to expedite the course that this virus will take is by disallowing the illness access to human hosts.  That means staying away from everyone, because you don’t need to be showing symptoms to be contagious.

For folks in hot spots like New York City and New Orleans, this is especially important.  That’s why the Governor of Florida is telling Louisianans to visit the Sunshine State some other time.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is requiring travelers from Louisiana to self-isolate for 14 days and said the Florida Highway Patrol will install checkpoints on major roads to screen travelers from that area, he announced on Friday.

DeSantis is imposing restrictions on travelers fleeing to Florida from Louisiana — particularly New Orleans, which is emerging as one of the hotspots of the coronavirus outbreak.

“New Orleans is having a lot of problems — they may not be quite as widespread as New York City. There was a concern from the Panhandle that this could impact them,” DeSantis said during a press conference on Friday.

“They are working hard to keep their rates low and we don’t want to add any problems to them,” he added.

The Florida Highway Patrol will install checkpoints on the major roads along the Alabama-Florida state line and screen drivers from Louisiana, with the exception of those driving commercial vehicles.

“There’ll probably be a diversion for folks with certain license plates,” DeSantis said.

Those who are allowed to enter Florida will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days in accordance with CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19.

Trump Considering Northeastern Quarantine as Virus Wreaks Havoc in New England

Of particular concern are New Yorkers fleeing The Big Apple who may be unwittingly carrying the disease.



America may very well be two weeks away from the peak of its coronavirus vulnerability, and some of the nation’s hardest hit cities are now under the magnifying glass.

The only weapon we have in this war, thus far, is distance.  We can only starve COVID-19 right now, as there is no accepted evidence of a miracle cure or vaccine that we could utilize to hit the virus head-on.

That’s why, as case numbers explode in the northeast, the Trump administration is contemplating some mighty maneuvers.

President Trump on Saturday said he is considering imposing an enforceable quarantine on New York, parts of New Jersey and parts of Connecticut as part of the efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

“Some people would like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hotspot — New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts of Connecticut quarantined,” he said outside the White House.

“I’m thinking about that right now. We might not have to do it but there’s a possibility that sometime today we’ll do a quarantine — short term, two weeks for New York, probably New Jersey and certain parts of Connecticut.”

He said that if such a move happened, it would be primarily a restriction on residents of those states traveling to other parts of the country.

Fears of fleeing New Yorkers unwittingly carrying the virus to other locales has already been a subject of concern in Rhode Island, here police are working to enforce a mandated 14 day quarantine on such travelers.

ACLU Responds to Rhode Island’s Quarantining of Fleeing New Yorkers

The Big Apple’s mass exodus isn’t sitting well with everyone.



In the global fight to curb coronavirus, New York City has quickly and predictably become an epicenter.

This wasn’t unexpected, of course.  The Big Apple is one of the most densely-populated locales on planet earth, often appearing more akin to an ant farm than a major metropolitan city.  These close quarters are all that COVID-19 needs to feed, and this novel strain of the coronavirus is being as gluttonous as it wishes.

This has led to a number of municipalities growing leery of traveling New Yorkers who, while attempting to escape the illness, could be unwittingly aiding in its spread.

Now, the ACLU is growing concerned that this is unconstitutional behavior that they should be consulted about.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Rhode Island is questioning the constitutionality of Gov. Gina Raimondo’s directive allowing state police to stop vehicles with New York license plates to collect information from drivers and passengers in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The Democratic governor on Thursday called the measure extreme but pointed out that the New York City area is the epicenter of the disease in the U.S.

While Raimondo has the authority to suspend some state laws and regulations to address a medical emergency, she cannot suspend the Constitution, ACLU of Rhode Island Executive Director Steven Brown said in a statement late Thursday.

“Under the Fourth Amendment, having a New York state license plate simply does not, and cannot, constitute ‘probable cause’ to allow police to stop a car and interrogate the driver, no matter how laudable the goal of the stop may be,” he said.

Some in Rhode Island believe that the ACLU’s involvement is wholly unnecessary, as the intent of the directive was to merely enforce an already-standing mandate that New Yorkers be quarantined for 14 days.

REPORTS: Young Adults and Children Are Still Very Much at Risk for Coronavirus Complications

No one is truly safe during this COVID-19 pandemic.



As we forge ever further into the depths of this coronavirus debacle, new information will continue to come to light that will help us to better understand the risks involved with the nasty illness.

This novel and deadly strain of coronavirus, known as COVID-19, is spreading rapidly throughout the globe, with the United States now squarely in the pandemic’s sights.  We are the new epicenter of the virus, having taken the unfortunate distinction from Italy, who, in turn, took the crown from China.

Under the scrutiny of the tens of thousands of medical professionals who have already tangled with the virus, we are now growing ever more aware of COVID-19’s dangers, including the threat that it poses to young adults and children.

When the coronavirus first started to spread from its origins in China earlier this year, the widely preached consensus was that it did not infect – or at least did not gravely harm – children and young adults. However, public health professionals are now raising the alarm that such information provided a dangerously false sense of security and invincibility.

“It is a misconception that children can’t get critically ill. Children are getting sick, but they’re not getting as severe cases,” Dr. John Whyte, Chief Medical Officer at WebMD, told Fox News. “The highest rate of severe cases and deaths remains the elderly. But what we are learning is that everyone is at risk.”

A study released this week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concluded that of the 4,226 coronavirus – officially termed COVID-19 – cases reported in the United States as of March 16, 29 percent were of those in the 20 to 44 age range. And in New York City, now the international epicenter of the pathogen, around half the confirmed infections were of individuals aged between 18 and 44.

Whyte isn’t the only one sounding the alarm, either.

“The initial data from Wuhan, China, indicated that the majority of people who were hospitalized and/or required ICU admission, sometimes then later resulting in fatalities due to coronavirus, were those who are older – over the age of 65, especially over 85,” said Dr. Roger McIntyre, president, and CEO of CRTCE, professor of psychiatry and pharmacology at the University of Toronto and head of the Mood Disorders Psychopharmacology Unit at the University Health Network. “But it appears as though new data from the CDC shows one in five individuals hospitalized due to COVID-19 are aged 20 to 44. Moreover, about 12 percent of intensive care unit admissions are people 20 to 44.”

This new information is just another reason why Americans must take the threat of COVID-19 seriously.

Oklahoma Gov. Stitt Orders Abortion Businesses To Close, Killing Babies is Not “Essential” Medical Care



Oklahoma Governor Stitt orders abortions postponed as part of order on elective medical procedures.

His executive order was issued March 24 postponed minor medical visits through April 7, and a news release Friday clarified that any type of abortion services, except when necessary due to serious health risks to the mother, is included in that directive.

Life News:

Add Oklahoma to the list of states where the governor has made it clear that abortion businesses must stop kiling babies in abortions because abortions are not “essential” medical care.

Today, Governor Kevin Stitt clarified that elective abortions are included in his executive order postponing elective surgeries until April 7 to conserve medical resources to combat the coronavirus.

“We must ensure that our health care professionals, first responders and medical facilities have all of the resources they need to combat COVID-19,” Stitt said in the release. “I am committed to doing whatever necessary to protect those who are on the front lines fighting against this virus.” More

Here’s more from KFOR:

As hospitals work to preserve personal protective equipment for nurses and doctors battling COVID-19, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt has clarified that abortion should be considered an elective surgery and be postponed under his order.

On Tuesday, Gov. Kevin Stitt ordered that all non-essential businesses located in counties affected by COVID-19 to close.

Non-essential businesses are considered places with a ‘social gathering’ aspect, like bars, gyms, and massage parlors.

At the same time, Stitt issued a 14-day suspension of all elective surgeries, minor medical procedures and non-emergency dental procedures in order to protect the state’s supply of personal protective equipment for medical workers.

Supermarket Destroys $35K Worth of Produce After Prankster Coughed on It




No matter how many people die, no matter how many grandmothers fall ill, there will still be some imbecile out there who thinks that the coronavirus pandemic is funny, and these are the people who are prolonging our isolation.

Worse still, there are Americans out there who are simply laughing at our attempts to keep people safe, and others who somehow believe that this is the time to play pranks in a grocery store, of all places.

 A Pennsylvania supermarket says they were forced to destroy more than $35,000 in food after a woman’s coronavirus prank involved intentionally coughing all over it.

On Wednesday, Gerrity’s Supermarket in Luzerne County, says the woman intentionally coughed on the fresh produce, a small section of the bakery and meat case.

The supermarket’s co-owner said he believes this was an attempt at a “very twisted prank.”

“We will not take any chances with the health and well-being of our customers. We had no choice but to throw out all product she came in contact with,” the supermarket’s co-owner Joe Fasula posted on Facebook.

Fasula was understandably distraught.

The store has not calculated the exact loss but believes it will be more than $35,000.

“I am also absolutely sick to my stomach about the loss of food. While it is always a shame when food is wasted, in these times when so many people are worried about the security of our food supply, it is even more disturbing,” Fasula said.

The alleged prankster will be getting a coronavirus test before the District Attorney decides whether or not to file charges.
