  1. The corona virus should not be a major concern.
    facts 116,657 contracts the virus 4.091 persons died, 64,750 recovered.
    compare these facts to

    Flu 49,000,000 contracts the virus 64,000 deaths these figures are in the USA only

    Cancer 1, 762, 450 contracts cancer 606,880 deaths in the USA only

    What is wrong with that picture?

    • @Melchisedec…I get where you’re coming from; however, according to the “experts,” The Wutan Ninja Virus, has the potential to morph into something unstoppable!

      Hail, in my opinion…


      A Test Of The Emergency QUARANTINE Systems, controlled by the Plutocrats and Oligarchs….losing or killing hundreds of thousands mean nothing to these folks.


  2. I hope that person will be tested again….. So many persons tested negative more than once and then they end up being positive for the virus after…..I’m concerned

  3. Why was this person a suspect? Where was the person detained or detected with flu-like symptoms? Did the person just arrive from a hotspot? Did the person arrive by air or sea? Who else came into contac with the suspect? What kind of medical care was administered during the waiting period? What is the age and gender of the person? Is the person a native resident (black), visitor or resident expat? How long did it take to get the test results? Was the person quarantined? If so, where?
    You see the type of information members of the public are seeking?

  4. When was the sample sent ? Is it the typical 2 weeks that carpha takes? Is that patient hospitalised? Is that patient at the army base? Because it can’t be at holberton, because they must have just finished it.

  5. Y’all asking too much Damm unnecessary questions point is THE PERSON NAH HAB UM . Geezzzzz be thankful nah

    • Exactly!! Seems like they want to hear bad news. Human beings just gravitate towards negativity. Guess they are bored and looking for “session” and “mellay” to spread on social media.

  6. At this rate, it is likely that we all gonna die from fear of this thing rather than from the thing itself…
