One day, a fire broke out in the house of a wealthy man who had many children. The wealthy man shouted at his children inside the burning house to flee. But, the children were absorbed in their games and did not heed his warning, though the house was being consumed by flames.

Then, the wealthy man devised a practical way to lure the children from the burning house. Knowing that the children were fond of interesting playthings, he called out to them, "Listen! Outside the gate are the carts that you have always wanted: carts pulled by goats, carts pulled by deer, and carts pulled by oxen. Why don't you come out and play with them?" The wealthy man knew that these things would be irresistible to his children.

The children, eager to play with these new toys rushed out of the house but, instead of the carts that he had promised, the father gave them a cart much better than any he has described - a cart draped with precious stones and pulled by white bullocks. The important thing being that the children were saved from the dangers of the house on fire.

Two Nevada men are announced as Confirmed for Covid-19 conronavirus.
One in Clark County, the other in Washoe County.
Reno, Nev. March 5, 2020. The Washoe County Health District (WCHD) has received a presumptive positive case of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), the first in Washoe County. The test has been sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for confirmation.

The case is a male resident in his 50s who is linked to the Grand Princess cruise ship outbreak. His condition is stable and he is self isolating at home.

The case has a family member who is a student at Huffaker Elementary School in Reno, Nev. Out of an abundance of caution, the Health District requested that Huffaker Elementary School be closed on Friday, March 6. The Washoe County School District has informed parents of the closure.
https://www.washoecounty.us/outreach/20 ... firmed.php

That case is showing as a Confirmed case in today's data feeds. And was announced as Confirmed in today's conference. They're testing students at the school.

This is in addition to a Confirmed case in Clark County that is in isolation in hospital. Had recent travel to Washington state.
A Clark County man who is in his 50s and has an underlying health condition is the first patient in Nevada who has tested presumptively positive for the novel coronavirus, the first of two reported cases of positive tests for the virus on Thursday.
...
The paper also reported that the Washoe County School District had notified parents of children at Huffaker Elementary School that the school would be closed on Friday because several children were experiencing flu-like symptoms.

The Channel 2 news here in Reno reported that ALL the kids have been tested and are corona virus free. Mind you they only closed the school for one day (yesterday) and as of last night 8:48 pm they reported all kids tested and virus free. People are calling bullshit as in how did they get all the kids tested and test results back in 24 hours. I’m just making popcorn...

Right. "Virus free" with an incubation time typically five to six days, but ranges from one day to twenty-seven days, with viral shedding starting during incubation, for asymptomatic transmission for spreading the infection...

There is no test that shows someone "virus free". It can only detect if there's enough infection to be able to detect. It requires a number of spaced negative tests before someone is declared Recovered. They found a number of cases that appeared to re-infect, but what was really happening is the virus numbers got low enough that they tested negative, but were not Recovered. The WHO reported that along with Severe and Critical cases succumbing, a percentage of Mild and Moderate cases also suddenly crash and succumb.

AZAR tries to explain that more tests are coming, but Trump waves him off to jump in.

The new coronavirus field hospital in Central Park is being run by Samaritan’s Purse, a notoriously anti-gay Christian hate group run by the equally notorious Franklin Graham. Adding insult to injury, the anti-gay conservative Christian organization demands that all volunteers adhere to their “statement of faith” which entails an explicitly anti-gay agenda.

No where in that article is President Trump's name mentioned. (I'm not sure what a Drumpf is.) Not a word. So you call people names even when they clearly have nothing to do with the matter at hand. The only little bitch here is you.

"Another contortionist." If you stood up straight, and looked at the world outside of your ass. You'd realize the majority of your fellow Americans did not put this self-centered, shameless idiot in office. You may call yourself loud & proud, but clearly you were outnumbered then, and more outnumbered now. So no matter what size you want to believe is in front of you. Outside that rectal collar you are wearing, is more then a pissed of nation. It's a pissed off world.😠
