So where will the first case that makes it into the country undetected come from ?

From someone legally entering the country or someone who comes in illegally across the southern border avoiding the safeguards we have established ?
 
China. And that first case is already there (and unlikely to be the only one). Likely from someone who flew to/from or from/to China. As more time passes it could come from anywhere.

Especially good to have if YOU pick up a cough and bring it home.
 

I guess it's too soon to ask you to design a "Free the COVID-19!" shirt

Pence: "I got this. I am rolling out a comprehensive program of thoughts and prayers for everyone as we speak!

I will also be heading a new task force together with the President's spiritual advisors to first determine whether or not this new plague was actually sent by God."

Personally I would go with P100 filter masks but then I use them all the time while doing woodwork and auto wrenching.

The US economy is about to take a hit but overall I reckon the health system should protect Americans.  Some other countries with fewer resources and even stupider politics will not make out as well.

Well...I don't know about you, but I feel a LOT safer after the briefing at the WH.  

Even when addressing public health all of the minions feel an obligation to blow smoke up the POTASS non-stop.  Thank you for your leadership...

yeah it's sad but true/predictable

i'm sure if and or when we see it here it'll be postured as trump's fault too

he didn't do enough or he could have done something different

it seems that most of the news and commentary is divisive yammering

whatever it takes to get ratings...

there's a lot of smart folks working on a vaccine

i read some biotech outfit already has one going to human trials in six weeks

in the us the flu takes out a lot of folks 

about twelve thousand a year on average

however in the 2017-2018 season i think it was like sixty thousand (so it varies)

not to panic but i believe we will see it here

realistically, i just don't think there's any way to guard against something like this

wash your hands people
