What You Need to Know About the Coronavirus

Yavapai County Arizona

Sedona AZIt’s time to be vigilant, take precautions, and prepare.

Yavapai County Community Health Services Director Leslie Horton said, “Yavapai County has a history of collaborating with the local partner agencies, including all cities and towns, to protect the residents that call Yavapai County home. We are working together and reviewing plans and practiced responses that have been in place for years to make sure everyone is prepared for situations like the one we find ourselves in now with the worldwide spread of Coronavirus (Covid19).”

With the recent case of COVID-19 in California with no contact with anyone from Wuhan China, the CDC has warned the public to be vigilant in healthy precautions and to prepare for potential cases: Visit this link for an easy to follow checklist and share it with others.

The one Arizona patient is now out of isolation and is no longer infected by the virus. People who have come in close contact with the man haven’t shown any signs of the illness known as COVID-19, Maricopa County Public Health reported. Most of them have passed the 14-day monitoring period without displaying any symptoms. Six of the 15 confirmed cases in the U.S. have recovered.

What is the virus and how is it different from the flu?

The only thing it has in common with the flu is that they are both respiratory viruses. COVID-19 has more in common with the common cold. While we mostly hear about rhinoviruses, there are several strains of coronavirus common in the U.S. that cause nothing worse than a cold.

Older adults usually develop worse symptoms than younger and are more likely to develop complications. Like flu, it generally hits hardest among seniors, people with chronic diseases like heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes, and those with weakened immune systems like people undergoing cancer treatment.

There’s no vaccine for coronavirus, but seniors should get vaccinated for diseases like pneumococcus and Hib. Getting those two vaccinations will help in limiting complications. Talk to your health provider if those vaccines are right for you.

Men are more likely to be hit harder with COVID than women. This is partly because women have a better immune system, but also because men often delay medical care until symptoms are severe. Coronavirus or not, if you have a fever above 100, a cough, and/or sore throat, see your doctor.

The best you can do to keep yourself from being infected?  It happens to be the same steps you take to keep yourself from getting colds and flu:

*Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
*Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
*Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
*Stay home when you are sick.
*Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
*Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Here are some preparation tips from Ready.gov:

*Store a two-week supply of water and food.
*Periodically check your regular prescription drugs to ensure a continuous supply in your home.
*Have any nonprescription drugs and other health supplies on hand, including pain relievers, stomach remedies, cough and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes, and vitamins.
*Get copies and maintain electronic versions of health records from doctors, hospitals, pharmacies and other sources and store them, for personal reference. Get help accessing electronic health records.
*Talk with family members and loved ones about how they would be cared for if they got sick, or what will be needed to care for them in your home.

Health officials emphasize that those who haven’t gotten the vaccine yet should do so, even though we’ve likely reached the midpoint of flu season. The vaccine takes two weeks to provide full protection, but cannot only ward off the illness, it can reduce how bad your flu is if you catch it and reduce the chance you’ll be hospitalized.

Yavapai County Community Health Services is in continuous communications with Arizona Department of Health Services on the COVID-19 monitoring and situation and will keep the public

YCCHS still has plenty of flu vaccine and ask your doctor if you should get any others – just call 928-771-3122 to make an appointment at one of our locations in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Cottonwood and Chino Valley.

The latest CDC Health Alert Network (HAN) Update provides updated guidance on evaluating and testing persons under investigation (PUIs) for COVID-19. It supersedes previous guidance: See https://bit.ly/2I3ZNbJ

    ROBIN SMITH / JAN. 4, 2021
    A Peaceful Transition of Power?
    Doing so requires the protection and integrity of our elections.

    A political narrative is being framed around the dispute between warring camps supporting their respective presidential candidates. If one accepts the premise of the fight to be singularly about the outcome of the November 3 election, giving that victor the right to occupy the White House for the next four years, the terms of the debate are shallow and expose the intents, motives, and insatiable ambitions of those perpetrating this shallow discussion.

    Instead, the terms of the debate must reflect the actual issue at hand — whether voter fraud occurred as a critical component of the national election overriding state legislatures, existing law, and the U.S. Constitution. Only then will deliberations prove worthy of the trust of Americans and our great nation’s founding.

    On January 20, 2021, there’s an expectation of a “peaceful transition of power” characteristic of this great constitutional republic. Is that peaceful transfer a demand, an expectation, or the result of the integrity of the institution of elections in America? Americans deserve the answer to that question to prove to be the latter. In reality, peaceful transitions of power are a result of a trusted process, not simply an organic outcome.

    History demonstrates the peaceful transfer of power began between bitter rivals — John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Adams, the incumbent, was challenged by Jefferson in 1800 in a bitter election between the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans, the newly formed partisan parties. Confusion reigned when the Electoral College tied, and the outcome of the election was determined by the House of Representatives casting 36 ballots for Thomas Jefferson to be America’s third president. The process was not pretty, yet the process worked.

    Two hundred twenty years later, the electoral process is still in place. But the American public has witnessed drastic changes. A two-tiered system of voting was constructed for 2020. If one voted in person, greater identity verification and security measures were observed, while those casting ballots by mail had to meet a lower bar. As votes were being counted on November 3, some states were observing extensions of the voting period past Election Day through court decisions, not actions of state legislative bodies as specified in the Constitution.

    While various groups are engaged in trench warfare to defend or disprove the tallies of November 3, facts are mounting that voting irregularities at best and actual criminal fraud at worst have occurred in many states:

    In Nevada, at least 1,500 listed as deceased, more than 19,000 nonresidents of the state, and almost 4,000 noncitizens cast ballots.
    In Arizona, almost 28,000 duplicate ballots were counted in Maricopa County.
    In Wisconsin, more than 200,000 mailed-in ballots were in question as clerks filled in missing information or harvested ballots.
    In Michigan, a sworn affidavit reflects one review of a sampling of 30,000 absentee ballots revealed 2,660 at invalid addresses and 229 cast on behalf of dead people.
    In Pennsylvania, an accounting analysis revealed that 202,377 more votes were counted than were actually cast.
    In Georgia, there were an estimated 70,000 ineligible votes because of lack of signature verification.
    In a 345-page DOJ report entitled “Federal Prosecution of Election Offenses,” a sweeping statement is made that we must acknowledge and embrace: “Our constitutional system of representative government only works when the worth of honest ballots is not diluted by invalid ballots procured by corruption. As the Supreme Court stated in a case upholding federal convictions for ballot box stuffing: ‘Every voter in a federal … election … whether he votes for a candidate with little chance of winning or for one with little chance of losing, has a right under the Constitution to have his vote fairly counted, without its being distorted by fraudulently cast votes.’”

    The truth is that voter fraud has been and remains an issue, and we must insist that legal votes alone are counted and that those committed to illegal voting and corruption are prosecuted.

  4. @joey says:

    So there was only voter fraud in the states democrats won aye.’ But all is well in the voting world that Republicans won. Hmmmmm. Sounds like a bunch of sore LOSERS and so call facts that have already been disproven.. oh BTW it looks like Georgia is going to follow Arizona lead and elect two Democratic Senators.

  5. Preston says:

    President Trump is a class act and will be at the inauguration because he represents the best of us and not the least of us. The best of us I.e. Republicans are far superior to the idiots elected and the world will see how great America is that Americans turn over our government peacefully even knowing they won’t last in power more than 4 years when they nation turns them out of the White House for being idiots. Then maybe we’ll re-elect a better batch again.

  6. @preston says:

    I guess the same is true today and that’s the reason the present idiot occupying the White House is leaving after only 1 term. Also looks like Georgia is following Arizona lead electing 2 democratic senators

  7. Tristan, Sedona says:

    From CNN and Yodel –

    China’s coronavirus vaccines were supposed to deliver a geopolitical win that showcased the country’s scientific prowess and generosity. Instead, in some places, they have set off a backlash. Officials in Brazil and Turkey have complained that Chinese companies have been slow to ship the doses and ingredients. Disclosures about the Chinese vaccines have been slow and spotty. The few announcements that have trickled out suggest that China’s vaccines, while considered effective, cannot stop the virus as well as those developed by Pfizer and Moderna, the American drugmakers.

  8. Carl, why is Pres. Biden silent?? says:

    Why is the President silent on this? Why aren’t we warning our citizens who go to China and get the vaccine and return to infect or be infected again? NYT headline story is about China’s Foreign Ministry covering its failure by refusing to announce its vaccines aren’t as good as here and that the coronavirus has reemerged.

    Here’s a NYT cut and paste to prove this isn’t fake news.

    “Currently, China’s domestic vaccine demand is huge,” it said. “While meeting domestic demand, we are overcoming difficulties, thinking and trying ways to develop international vaccine cooperation with other countries, especially developing countries in different ways, and providing support and assistance according to their needs and within our capacity.”

    Me again …The coronavirus is back and growing again China and they’re not telling the world AGAIN about it would make them look bad…

    NYT again .. The sporadic outbreaks are hindering production. Sinovac, which declined to comment, said Friday online that it was looking for workers for a Beijing-area facility where an outbreak had frightened off potential employees.

    But that statement was issued to cover its shoddy quality and performance issues say both the Singapore and Philippine governments, among other buyers..Turkey and Brazil are scrambling to try and get the promised China vaccine now, and finding it might not work or work as well!

  9. Wuhan China and a Harvard University Lab says:

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Tuesday, January 28, 2020

    Harvard University Professor and Two Chinese Nationals Charged in Three Separate China Related Cases

    The Department of Justice announced today that the Chair of Harvard University’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department and two Chinese nationals have been charged in connection with aiding the People’s Republic of China.

    Dr. Charles Lieber, 60, Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University, was arrested this morning and charged by criminal complaint with one count of making a materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statement. Lieber will appear this afternoon before Magistrate Judge Marianne B. Bowler in federal court in Boston, Massachusetts.

    Yanqing Ye, 29, a Chinese national, was charged in an indictment today with one count each of visa fraud, making false statements, acting as an agent of a foreign government and conspiracy. Ye is currently in China.

    Zaosong Zheng, 30, a Chinese national, was arrested on Dec. 10, 2019, at Boston’s Logan International Airport and charged by criminal complaint with attempting to smuggle 21 vials of biological research to China. On Jan. 21, 2020, Zheng was indicted on one count of smuggling goods from the United States and one count of making false, fictitious or fraudulent statements. He has been detained since Dec. 30, 2019.

    Dr. Charles Lieber

    According to court documents, since 2008, Dr. Lieber who has served as the Principal Investigator of the Lieber Research Group at Harvard University, which specialized in the area of nanoscience, has received more than $15,000,000 in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Department of Defense (DOD). These grants require the disclosure of significant foreign financial conflicts of interest, including financial support from foreign governments or foreign entities. Unbeknownst to Harvard University beginning in 2011, Lieber became a “Strategic Scientist” at Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) in China and was a contractual participant in China’s Thousand Talents Plan from in or about 2012 to 2017. China’s Thousand Talents Plan is one of the most prominent Chinese Talent recruit plans that are designed to attract, recruit, and cultivate high-level scientific talent in furtherance of China’s scientific development, economic prosperity and national security. These talent programs seek to lure Chinese overseas talent and foreign experts to bring their knowledge and experience to China and reward individuals for stealing proprietary information. Under the terms of Lieber’s three-year Thousand Talents contract, WUT paid Lieber $50,000 USD per month, living expenses of up to 1,000,000 Chinese Yuan (approximately $158,000 USD at the time) and awarded him more than $1.5 million to establish a research lab at WUT. In return, Lieber was obligated to work for WUT “not less than nine months a year” by “declaring international cooperation projects, cultivating young teachers and Ph.D. students, organizing international conference[s], applying for patents and publishing articles in the name of” WUT.

    The complaint alleges that in 2018 and 2019, Lieber lied about his involvement in the Thousand Talents Plan and affiliation with WUT. On or about, April 24, 2018, during an interview with investigators, Lieber stated that he was never asked to participate in the Thousand Talents Program, but he “wasn’t sure” how China categorized him. In November 2018, NIH inquired of Harvard whether Lieber had failed to disclose his then-suspected relationship with WUT and China’s Thousand Talents Plan. Lieber caused Harvard to falsely tell NIH that Lieber “had no formal association with WUT” after 2012, that “WUT continued to falsely exaggerate” his involvement with WUT in subsequent years, and that Lieber “is not and has never been a participant in” China’s Thousand Talents Plan.

    Yanqing Ye

    According to the indictment, Ye is a Lieutenant of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China and member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). On her J-1 visa application, Ye falsely identified herself as a “student” and lied about her ongoing military service at the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), a top military academy directed by the CCP. It is further alleged that while studying at Boston University’s (BU) Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering from October 2017 to April 2019, Ye continued to work as a PLA Lieutenant completing numerous assignments from PLA officers such as conducting research, assessing U.S. military websites and sending U.S. documents and information to China.

    According to court documents, on April 20, 2019, federal officers interviewed Ye at Boston’s Logan International Airport. During the interview, it is alleged that Ye falsely claimed that she had minimal contact with two NUDT professors who were high-ranking PLA officers. However, a search of Ye’s electronic devices demonstrated that at the direction of one NUDT professor, who was a PLA Colonel, Ye had accessed U.S. military websites, researched U.S. military projects and compiled information for the PLA on two U.S. scientists with expertise in robotics and computer science. Furthermore, a review of a WeChat conversation revealed that Ye and the other PLA official from NUDT were collaborating on a research paper about a risk assessment model designed to decipher data for military applications. During the interview, Ye admitted that she held the rank of Lieutenant in the PLA and admitted she was a member of the CCP.

    Zaosong Zheng

    In August 2018, Zheng entered the United States on a J-1 visa and conducted cancer-cell research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston from Sept. 4, 2018, to Dec. 9, 2019. It is alleged that on Dec. 9, 2019, Zheng stole 21 vials of biological research and attempted to smuggle them out of the United States aboard a flight destined for China. Federal officers at Logan Airport discovered the vials hidden in a sock inside one of Zheng’s bags, and not properly packaged. It is alleged that initially, Zheng lied to officers about the contents of his luggage, but later admitted he had stolen the vials from a lab at Beth Israel. Zheng stated that he intended to bring the vials to China to use them to conduct research in his own laboratory and publish the results under his own name.

    The charge of making false, fictitious and fraudulent statements provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of visa fraud provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of acting as an agent of a foreign government provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of conspiracy provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of smuggling goods from the United States provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

  10. Wuhan China and a martyred doctor says:

    The first unexplained cases of a pneumonia-like illness were reported to the WHO’s office in Beijing on Dec. 31, and detailed information about the “viral pneumonia of unknown cause” was provided Jan. 3, according to the WHO.

    Trump has accused the WHO of failing to adequately warn the world about the coronavirus outbreak, saying in May that its actions as a “puppet of China” allowed the pandemic to spiral out of control…The timeline of events early on in the coronavirus outbreak has come under intense scrutiny, including whether China acted quickly enough to alert the WHO of evidence that the virus was being transmitted between humans. Local authorities have been criticized for downplaying the threat to the public and being slow to impose lockdown measures in Wuhan, which went into effect Jan. 23.

    With house majority of Democrats led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi accusing the Trump administration of xenophobia with any restrictions against travel to and from China and or alerting the traveling public to an unproven “outbreak” because it would impact low income jobs, the Trump administration faces lack of bipartisan support in and out of government corridors.

    Students, here’s your research question.

    Now about that Chinese doctor. What was his name? He was a Chinese citizen and he used Chinese social media to warn his colleagues. He was concerned and attended to notify medical authorities of a “killing virus” when no one in government appeared concerned? He died of the disease. Has he been nominated for a Nobel Prize?

    A CNN spokesperson told the Washington Post that a rule prohibiting anchor Chris Cuomo from interviewing or covering his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, “remains in place today.”

    Why it matters: Chris Cuomo hosted his brother for numerous segments of “Cuomo Prime Time” to discuss the coronavirus last year, when New York was at the epicenter of the pandemic and the governor was winning plaudits for his crisis management. Gov. Cuomo is now facing a federal probe and calls to resign over his handling of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes.

  14. Sedona Elaine says:

    CDC announced vaccinated people can get together. Hurrah! Hurry up and throw a party for yourselves because tomorrow you’ll be called super spreaders and ordered back inside.

    It’s maddening how this administration has screwed up getting the vaccines out and second doses are still not available. Thank God we had the Trump admin to develop the vaccine which this administration didn’t want and that the prior administration established the distribution infrastructure for Biden’s group to dismantle. Like that AP reporter at WH presser laughed down the WH spokesperson by reminding in his question that “WE HE didn’t do it, THEY did it because after all HE WE have only been in office one month.” WE HE THEY need more journalists like that AP one. It’s called demanding the truth not party patois.

    Hey Elaine you say”demand the truth” …… ok when are you gonna start “Posting the Truth!!??. How about you stop living in an alternative universe.. Trump is almost out of the koolaid you’ve been drinking.

  16. MYCEstes, Flagstaff AZ says:

    A foolish man does not recognized President Trump was never racist and he did more for minorities than any President in modern history. I’m proud POC and in Arizona we supported President Trump. He pushed for the vaccines and set up the distribution networks and preordered and paid for millions of doses, being a member of the medical field that is a truism. President Biden is in office not two months and accomplished nothing on his own or with the administration with the vaccines. The government now can’t even keep supplies open because they are bureaucrats. You must recall press conferences where President Trump announced vaccines were making tremendous progress and was vilified and called a liar in the media and this press for even suggesting a vaccine was possible before two or three years. President Trump even ordered vaccine codes to other nations like my father’s old country. New York Democrats inaction and obstruction delays killed more than the Chinese government with their planned government of vaccine inaction and public announcements, they even denied the escape of the virus which good researchers immediately knew was the cause. It is important to hold Democrats accountable for political and medical interference and their failure to uphold the rules of medicine. The government wants to hold identity cards of vaccinations and this country should not do that, your local doctor or state government should have the file information like polio or HPV vaccines, never the federal government to use in nefarious ways. Thanks here is my contact information (deleted by editor) to discuss use of common name or anonymous (Deleted by editor).

    Facebook and Twitter policies would cancel the Chinese doctor fighting against the government with their vaccine and medical jumbo jumbo we know best what truth is policies. No you Don’t Facebook Twitter.

    Hong Kong’s been cancelled by Biden administration saying China can do what it wants with their Asians because China says we know what’s best for those kind of people. That’s what Biden agreed to with his acknowledging culture is more than individual people.

    Where’s Amnesty Intl? Where are Americans? Biden needs to be investigated for his China capitulation. It’s outrageous.

  18. Oracle says:

    This is why Facebook doesn’t get the right to label medical discussions with their “Vaccines are safe and any other comment is false or misinformation”. Norway is suspending AstraSeneca vaccinations until reports of blood clots occurring after administering are investigated.

    Facebook isn’t a medical site and if it was it would know that disallowing individuals and professionals to discuss contraindications is pro big tech and big pharma corporations wallets and not pro global health. Neither is the WHO pro global health when its policies are controlled by big pharma and big tech and one world power aspirations.

    That said, Facebook isn’t more than a platform to obtain and disseminate under its control and for its own corporate benefit that information. Find another way to chat and share your secrets and those things you should have kept secret from your Facebook daddy.

  19. Sedona Dream Weaver says:

    Dear Dr Fauci,
    Your comment that President Trump needs to tell his “followers” to get vaccines is offensive to me. I can like the President and think for myself, a character flaw you must have as you continue to speak the words of your employers. Most followers I know did due diligence and opted to be vaccinated as soon as they could, and most are still waiting for vaccines because President Biden isn’t able to do as good a job delivering as Trump’s vaccine developers did producing. Biden tried to reinvent the delivery wheel to keep Trump from looking good, and when that backfired they tried blaming low vaccine injection numbers on the healthcare workers and the healthcare systems not doing good jobs distributing it or saying they withheld it from black and brown communities instead of federal delivery incompetence. Now Pres. Biden looks bad because the racism fallback backfired. You don’t blame first responses and police and hospitals and healthcare providers for racism because they are the ones standing there helping. And we followers are still waiting on you too Dr Fauci to catch up after your latest double mask debacle. Yours truly, A teacher household of unvaccinated aged 60 and older

    https://www.kff.org/coronavirus-covid-19/issue-brief/what-share-of-people-who-have-died-of-covid-19-are-65-and-older-and-how-does-it-vary-by-state/

    CDC:

    The District of Columbia is 87% black and has the lowest percentage (70%) of deaths from COVID-19 by US state district island commonwealth population statistics. This significant scientific indicator dispelled the myth that ethnicity and race are factors in determining death outcomes.

    Science determined clusters of elderly or disabled in long term care facilities proved the most deadly.

    Science has proven that ages under 65 and good health were the best survival indicators for the coronavirus.

    A politician suggested ethnicity or race was a significant factor in COVID-19 deaths, science dispelled that falsehood with analysis of statistics.

    Thank you. Good health.

    I just declined a show in Cabo. Why? If I or anyone in my crew tests positive for Covid it’s mandatory quarantine in Mexico for 10 days. That’s the rule for USA citizens. A non-citizen can breach our border, test Covid+ and get a bus ride to a new town. Welcome to #BidensAmerica 8:37 PM · Apr 17, 2021·Twitter Web App @johnrich

  38. Esther Francisco Gardell, Glendale says:

    Zero cases in the County and now we can go back to work and get to school and stop with the excuses. Take off your masks if vaccinated because why would you not, and breathe the air. If you’re not vaccinated, why would you not?

  39. Avril Downs says:

    No more masks.

  40. Angie E. Perez, Goodyear and Sedona says:

    Innovation, adaption, and creativity may not be an American birthright, but it is surely in the American DNA. – James Jay Carafano May 21 2021 It is necessary to say thank you to the pharmaceutical companies that gave us vaccines and to the Trump Administration for believing in science and innovation American style because without the backing of the Trump administration, America and the world would still be living in the hellholes of nation’s without vaccines or ability to discover vaccines sadly predicted by then-candidate Biden as our necessary future. Happily we can say that America rallied and won this war against its enemy COVID without relying on those who would have us not try to meet the challenge. The world relies on American ingenuity and application to win the war against the killer virus that originated in China, whose vaccines, like Russia’s, have not been as effective. This Venezuelan expat acknowledges America for saving me and my family and friends lives and we are very grateful. (Retired educator)

  43. Xavier on History says:

    anti science tina is listening to dr fauci flip flop on science research and watch cdc go political like un & who until you begin to realize fauci is a decades trained government bureaucrat with money invested in biological research and the puzzle pieces fall in place

    you begin to see how lenin murdered tens of millions of russians beginning with intellectuals and media that he said were the easiest to manipulate for their herd mentality and institutional approval of centralized control

    you begin to see how mao easily murdered tens of millions of chinese for the same reasons

    you begin to see how hitler easily murdered ten million europeans for the same reasons

    and the list goes on around the globe from the congo to colombia

    round and round it goes and if america is destroyed there will be no foot in the door for the rest of the world

    the mask does not protect YOU, it is so you doin’t infect others….. It’s about others not you. Masks have been proven to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but instead of believing the evidence and following public health guidelines, many people have turned mask wearing into a political statement. They are refusing to wear masks for reasons that are laughable. Rejecting masks is selfish: it means they don’t care if other people get sick and die.

  45. Russell says:

    @steveSegner you’re right it doesn’t protect me, masks are a political statement for the likes of you and yours

  46. steve Segner says:

    Yes, Russell, the state is (the people) are more important than the individual. WW2 were lights blacked out, wages set by the state, ration food, the Draft, and in the 1950 everyone , got a vaccinated or diden’t go to school. The state make you have liability insurance to drive, why to protect others, So does a mask you are the one making it a political statement .WE just don’t want you around us with out a mask.

  47. Paul C. says:

    Good Lord, Segner, do you even understand what you said? Let’s set a parameter for expansion. No, the individual is the most important because without individuals the state could not and would not need to exist. Your examples do not speak to state vs individuals and fail to rise to the level of proof or opinion on the subject. Suggest that you do some research on this topic because it goes back to the beginning of time and is even valid within this second.

  48. Ileana Gomez says:

    Get vaccinated.

  49. Herelys Silva, Phoenix says:

    The country has vaccinated about half of its population as of May 2021. CDC reported percentages lag behind actual vaccinations, typical of all situations of reporting, and if you read the fine print on the website it will inform you of that as well. The ages of those the government is reporting as vaccinated are also unavailable which impacts the government result. New coronavirus cases are being driven by undocumented aliens crossing the borders with active cases, and with the mass relocation within the US of carriers of untreated virus positive cases, expect the half million to severely impact states case reporting in the next months. The Biden administration has reported over 160 countries citizens have crossed without and with apprehension further undermining the CDC ability to track the disease or for the government to administer vaccines. The Biden administration has allowed more drugs to cross the border since January than in the entire last year.
