  1. .#zZz#.⚡⬆️⬇️💀 ЧТО АМЕРИКА???!.НАЧИНАЕМ КОРОНКУ💀 ПРИМЕРЯТЬ???!.💀⚡⚡⚡

  2. Funny how they say EVERYONE that’s infected didn’t leave their house!!!! Wow they are getting great at lying to us !!!!

  3. You know they made that guy do it because No one will look at him and take what he says serious this is either pure coincidence or the assholes know what they are doing

  4. Damn New York y'all release a prisoner and let 26 leave the hospital possibly infected so much for America beating this plague

  5. Unbelievable they even letting them quarantine in their homes. They said the bacteria can be passed in the house pipes wtf

  6. The US are under-reporting, the CDC are not updating their website in real-time. And they blame China for gagging the truth. People are going to die because of bureaucrats self-dealing. The State-by-state numbers must be reported in real-time. They can’t test, and they can’t deal with that this crisis. Too many worried about their portfolios.

  7. This politician sounds a lot like the Communist officials at Wuhan before the Virus spread out of control. Wouldn't it be prudent to house these people for the recommended time to make sure that the public was safe and if they had been infected that the early detection would give them a better chance at recovery?  Looks like Socialist states are really prone to bad judgment. Will political correctness bring NYS into the crosshairs of this virus? Is the Governor agreeing with this Politician from Westchester County? If these Politicos are wrong they both better look for different employment when it comes to the next election cycle.

  8. Health workers should know. Of all suspect cases. You need to be transparent with public but doubly transparent with healthcare workers with real time info

  9. Its wrong to make fun of his eyes.
    You do not want them quarantining at medical centers. The whole idea is to separate the disease from hosts. There needs to be transparency in the public needs to remain rational. But most importantly there should be transparency for healthcare workers that proper precautions are taken.

  10. What about Buffalo? There are reports that the Corona virus is showing up in hospitals in Buffalo. What about Niagara Falls? Reports indicate the Corona virus has come across the border there. What about Watertown? Same thing. Where else is this thing and MSM is not reporting it? And now Westchester County? I live in Rochester, NY. What about Syracuse, Binghamton, Ithaca, Albany?

    These reports are all from border towns and cities. Is the virus coming across from Canada?

    We have a large base of Chinese students attending all New York State colleges and universities. These students just got back into the US after spending Christmas Break in their homes in China? Not one of them brought the virus back with them? You can't go into a Lowe's or Home Depot without salespeople complaining about Chinese students coming in and buying up N95 masks and PPE.

  11. Self-quarantines don't work. For one thing the facts surrounding the character of the virus keep changing. The latency period has gone from 14-days to 24-days. There are now reports that the latency periods are even higher. People who self-quarantine have an expectation of their confinement only lasting for a specific period of time, currently 14-days. Combine this with cabin fever, the fact that paychecks don't go as far as they use to, the need to work, to bring in money, to pay the bills and buy food, and then tell them that they need to self-quarantine for a month? You let these people out early and you've got an epidemic on your hands. Good luck with that.

  12. We've only got the internet. NO ONE trusts the government to tell us the truth! What the ??? DId she really end by saying get the flu shot???? Like that is helping anyone. Wonder if she goes home at the end of her shift. looks in the mirror, and is totally ashamed of herself for going along with BS

  13. Government officials, the WHO are not listening people. They know people should not be coming back into the country but they allow it anyway. They don't care what we say. We don't matter!!

  14. Whistleblower doctors say coronavirus reinfection even deadlier

  15. A lot of these comments seem to be written by people who are challenged by the English language and shouldn't be using the word 'they'

  16. Anyone else notice how he has exotropia of both eyes? (right eye turned outward to the right and the left eye turned outward to the left – both at the same time ) While exotropia (eye turning outward) is not that uncommon, it typically is unilateral to which only one eye is affected but having exotropia with both eyes, now that is uncommon. I've never seen that before. Kinda cool.

  17. I hope they find a cure. Because I don't want it to be a circus either. It's already bad often they have Shortages on medical staff, medicine, equipment, mask. I just hope the come up with how people are suppose to work and still earn a income. Just pray. I know we have alot smart people who will find a way.

  18. Shrimp zoo is speaking truth about New York and getting threatened for it. Prepare people. The powers that be will keep the lid on the truth until it blows.

  19. The government cannot be trusted, they will ALWAYS downplay! They are ALWAYS naysayers and liars. Remember, no matter how dangerous this virus is they would react EXACTLY the same.

  20. Quarantined voluntary, ? Is that a nice way of telling the people that better to volunteer, than be selected for mandatory suicide?

  21. Poor quarantine, persons will get bored and leave their homes after a few days. Then headed to a store or restaurant near you. Situation is out of control.
