    What does that mean? How did they "signal" it? What was the actual language? What was the recommendation?

    It's vague language like that that makes these "news" stories worthless.

    Maybe if you read the links?

    ETA: Here - let me help, not that it will do any good. I'm sure you've already made your decisions on the issue and no amount of actual information will dissuade THAT.

    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.

    Awww... here...let me help you with a free version. It's not as detailed as the post report, so I'm sure you will find a reason to hand-wave it way...

    But at least I tried...

    Obviously that article is beyond your intellectual capacities. Now go run around and play with the five-year-olds.

    Intelligence agencies “have been warning on this since January,” said a U.S. official who had access to intelligence reporting...

    January... January... hmmm... isn't that when Trump restricted travel to China, a decision that was condemned as racist by liberals but has been praised by Dr. Fauci as the right decision at the right time?

    Wow, Trump at least did one thing right. Must be why he keeps bringing it up, since it's about the only thing he's done right. The thing is, most airlines had already suspended travel from China.

    No, your best and only hope is to obtain and follow the best scientific advice, and respond at a Federal level. Regrettably, the C in C is an idiot, and not the “stable genius” you thought he was.

    Latest numbers -

    April 1: 26,473 new cases and 1,049 new deaths
    April 2: 29,874 new cases and 974 new deaths
    April 3: 32,284 new cases and 1,045 new deaths
    April 4: 34,196 new cases and 1,331 new deaths

    There was a slowdown on April 2 in the new death numbers. But it now looks like an anomaly. So the question, when do we reach the inflection point, remains to be seen.
