    “There are currently 44 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Arizona as of 10 AM this morning.”

    How exactly were they “confirmed” when the test is bogus? https://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/does-2019-coronavirus-exist?utm_campaign=Daily%20Newsletter%3A%20Coronavirus%20-%20Cowdan%20-%20Fixed%20%28Ji2mSU%29&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Daily%20Newsletter&_ke=eyJrbF9lbWFpbCI6ICJ3NjM0NTc4OUB5YWhvby5jb20iLCAia2xfY29tcGFueV9pZCI6ICJLMnZYQXkifQ%3D%3D

    “There is no proof that a virus is being detected by the test and there is absolutely no concern about whether there are a significant number of false positives on the test.”

    “The coronavirus panic is just that, an irrational panic, based on an unproven RNA test, that has never been connected to a virus.”

    Meanwhile in Italy, it turns out that, in over 99% of the deaths originally attributed to a virus, the deceased were already sick — and half of them had at least 3 different diseases! https://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/italian-government-study-99-their-coronavirus-fatalities-were-already-sick-half-dee?utm_campaign=Daily%20Newsletter%3A%20Mainstream%20Media%20Confirmation%3A%2099%25%20of%20the%20Italian%20Coronavirus%20Fatalities%20Were%20Already%20Sick%20and%20Elderly%20%28LrVjvd%29&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Daily%20Newsletter&_ke=eyJrbF9lbWFpbCI6ICJ3NjM0NTc4OUB5YWhvby5jb20iLCAia2xfY29tcGFueV9pZCI6ICJLMnZYQXkifQ%3D%3D

    This isn’t a virus; it’s a takeover.

    World Health Organization issued guidance that people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

    “This isn’t a virus; it’s a takeover.” @@Community Health Services Update.

    It’s been reported that people with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable! So no big mystery or cover up secrets about that! Logical information made public. Are we to understand you would prefer this global pandemic be ignored?

    Your stupidity is enhanced by your ignorance if you believe this is a hoax. In fact, mother nature has a way of dealing with balance.

    Maybe this disease is her way of getting rid of over-population? Happens every so often – earthquakes, floods, volcano eruptions, and other natural disasters = reduced population and balance.

    Think about that one.

  5. Gina says:

    When driving through gates and putting in code be sure you use hand wipes on keypad before and after!!! Keep a small spray bottle mixture of bleach and water and a few old cloths in your car to use.

  6. Ron says:

    first AZ death guy in 50s with health issues, this is scary s***
    like the way the government is handling it
    Trump doing good job, Ducey too

  7. Elaine Brown says:







    Phone Bank Closed for Weekend, Re-Opens Monday, 8:00 a.m.

    The Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center is available to answer questions about COVID-19 at 844- 542-8201.
    Arizona providers can call for testing and patient guidance. The general public can call for information about testing, isolation and quarantine.

    Lets all stop justifying any death because of underlying illness, it’s not humane.

    Humanity is a virtue associated with basic ethics of altruism derived from the human condition. It also symbolises human love and compassion towards each other.

    Just love.
    Just Compassion.

  8. Lockdowns, Fines and Stay at Home Orders says:

    Stay at home orders, CNN news

    California, Illinois, New York and New Jersey were already under stay at home orders over the weekend. Ohio, Louisiana and Connecticut will join them on Monday.

    [SedonaEye.com editor: An order goes into effect on Tuesday in Delaware for a full 24 hour lockdown until May 15, 2020.]

    The orders encourage social distancing measures but make exceptions for people to leave their homes for things like buying food, picking up medicine and going to work for essential jobs. Some encourage being outside and active — as long as it isn’t done in groups.

    Breaking the order could result in a fine in New York and Connecticut.

    “These are not helpful hints. … There will be a civil fine and mandatory closure for any business that is not in compliance” starting Sunday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

  9. Lisa, VOCA says:

    DO: Follow public health recommendations on social distancing. Help provide meals to needy in communities. Donate medical supplies if possible. Don’t congregate. Pick up after your dogs.

  10. Sarah, uptown says:

    The ADHS also identified 48 additional COVID-19 cases on Sunday, bringing the state ADHS total to 152. That number does not include some additional cases in Arizona announced by the Navajo Nation late last night, but it’s unclear how many of the Navajo’s cases are not included in March 22 ADHS count (a press release from the Nation stated there are four cases in Chinle Service Unit, which is in Apache County, but the ADHS website reports only three cases).

  11. Charley says:

    AZ first coronavirus death was 50 some yr old employee at Sky Harbor in Phoenix Aviation, not lot of contact with others says the airport but don’t know about the others.

  12. Paul, Sedona says:

    The city manager needs to pull the plug on all rental licenses held for short term rentals immediately. VRBO and Airbnb and others offer full deposit returns. Make the announcement now.

    AZ Department of Health Services announced a second person had died from COVID-19. The man was a Maricopa County resident in his 70s who had an underlying health condition. ADHS announced 48 additional COVID-19 cases on Sunday bringing total to 152 not including some of the Arizona Navajo Nation. Remember the number will go up daily so don’t get tied up in the rising numbers. It’s been expected. Do your part and stay home. VRBO and Airbnb has notified its renters that deposits will be returned in full. Landlords, close your rentals now.

  13. Susan Collins Stands Up for Women Everywhere says:

    “We don’t have another day. We don’t have another hour. We don’t have another minute to delay acting.”
