    They should start telling you the Towns the virus is in. NOT just the counties.

      Information has been withheld on this virus, in my opinion, by the government. This was done to keep hysteria from setting in. I believe the virus has been in USA for months, probably since December maybe earlier. And I think many, many people got the dreaded Covid-19 and didn’t know it. This is also why they are now saying this deal will blow over by end of May (mostly). Pretty fas for a pandemic to burn itself out if you read the history books regarding Spanish flu which took much longer to eradicate.

        It almost hurts to say, I mostly agree with you on this. I think it has been here for a while already.

        Where I disagree is, “read the history books regarding Spanish flu which took much longer to eradicate.” Major transportation was still by horse, not car or jet. Only place I disagree on this.

      I think the virus has been in Iowa for awhile (thanks to the campaigners coming here from all over the country, especially SF and NY) and it will be spreading far and wide.

    Businesses should be able to postpone rent payments for the the time being. Especially mall tenets. Lucky you got that hockey emporium in. Construction will need to be halted on everything soon everywhere. The big cities spread to the smaller cities. Communities need to ban travelers from coming to town. Especially Clear Lake. This is exactly what is happening in hot spots. Quarantine your town.

    New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Chicago, and last but not least Florida. Who by the way ‘seemed’ to be in denial. Almost a thousand died in Spain yesterday. And it’s true they are a crossroad country. And last years revenue from Chinese tourist was a record. But We in America are like a spoke on a wagon wheel when it comes to traveling the world. Stay home.

      hey one world order can those statistics, info be verified by two independent sources besides the 1984 who have a agenda, control the narrative and moto is order out of chaos – problem, reaction, solution – otherwise no sale, video from RFB, https://youtu.be/g0GaV8ruoDw – part of the cabals practice they have to “disclose” what they are doing so they do not get bad karma, I have zero agenda and neither does the “truth”
