The US military has set up 15 coronavirus quarantine camps on its bases, and 600 citizens are still isolated there
It’s the first time in more than 50 years a quarantine order has been issued. But these probably won’t be the US’ last coronavirus patients, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Thursday.
“There will likely be additional cases in the coming days and weeks, including among other people recently returned from Wuhan,” the CDC said in a statement.
In anticipation of additional cases, the US government has established quarantine centers at 15 military facilities across the country.
What’s wrong with this picture? Here are two hints:
- US evacuees are being quarantined for 14 days, since the CDC says the virus’ incubation period ranges from two days to two weeks.
- Look at the masks.
The incubation period is assumed to be 14 days. North Korea’s quarantine period is 30 days. There have been several cases documented at an incubation period of longer than 14 days. The Diamond Princess cruise ship was infected by a passenger on a previous cruise who disembarked from the ship on Jan. 15. We are seeing daily reports from this stranded ship of new cases being diagnosed one month later. I am not saying that the incubation period is longer than 14 days (although it seems to be longer in some cases) but with the unknowns associated with this virus, erring on the side of caution may save millions of lives. Ask yourself how long the Chinese have locked down Wuhan?
The masks that these people were given in the above picture would not prevent the spread of the virus if one of the people was infected. If the CDC is wrong, what are the consequences? The Japanese quarantine worker who became infected on the Diamond Princess was following WHO quarantine guidelines. They were wrong and the consequences are still unknown for the general population.
If our “leaders” are wrong, we will suffer consequences of Biblical proportions.
