From the Seattle Times this morning:  The state Fire Training Academy in North Bend has been chosen as a new quarantine site for people returning to the United States from the Chinese province at the center of the new coronavirus outbreak.
...
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is among seven U.S. airports designated to screen air passengers arriving from China for symptoms of the virus. Whether and how travelers are quarantined will depend on whether they exhibit symptoms and where in China they visited.
...
Medical professionals say the risk of catching the novel coronavirus in Washington state is low and that ordinary flu remains a bigger threat. The best way to protect yourself is to wash your hands, medical experts say.    ~z

Per an article in the Seattle Times the North Bend Fire Fighting Acadamy will no longer be used as a quarantine site.  Logistics and the remoteness of the facility were factors in this decision.

Today's Times now reports that the  state-owned property behind the Washington State Public Health Laboratories in Shoreline is the only site in the state that could quarantine healthy people who may have been exposed to the coronavirus.  "The site is designated for people who traveled from China's Hubei province and aren't able to quarantine elsewhere."  ~z

Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, which I live right next to, is a tertiary site that would handle up to 20 overflow patients.

Now on tonight's news, they stated that 4 people were admitted to SHH in Spokane, wonder what happened to the 5th?

I don't know if anybody knows, but from the data available, the younger you are the better.  But they start with "under 9" so it's not about babies.

Does all this corona virus news make anyone besides me nervous?  Are we on the edge of a pandemic?  Today on the news, they say that there is a 'new epicenter' of virus in Korea.  The newscasters also say that the virus may spread very rapidly and that containing it geographically is almost impossible due to modern transportation.   Are you nervous? confused.gif

I do worry some because history has a way of repeating itself, and the "White Man's Disease" killed a great many American Indians in the 1800's, contributing greatly to the takeover of their lands. That and the vast numbers against them...O' and whiskey.  souse.gif

But more seriously, I'm not sure it that big of an issue, since the Flu has killed many more people so far. I just look at it as another strain of the flu.

i'm sure this will spread worldwide, full scale. only solution will be a vaccine or whether you're not in a compromised health group.
