2. they had no idea what had come into the facility until it was too late.

these are the staffers at a nursing home, most of whom are probably immigrants from East Africa. having spent 6 months with staff at another Seattle-area home while my MIL was dying, I'd wager they're among the most kind, patient, selfless humans I've ever met.

I wish they all speedy recoveries.

7. read the last line

95 Sympomatic.
These figures are apparently taken from individuals already "presenting" symptoms.
The complete story would tell us something about the results of testing on individuals that are not symptomatic .. or whether those individuals have been tested at all
It's really up to the bubble-heads at the TV station to sort things like this out.

9. Lifecare in Kansas also had a positive pt

Really bad thing: initial 911 call was for *chest pain* so no Covid19 precautions were used. He started w/ a fever after hospitalized. Died 24 hrs later. Post mortem CoVid test was positive. Now a bunch of first responders are quarantined. I imagine employees will be, also.

KCK firefighters fear their department hasn't prepared them properly for the coronavirus outbreak after five firefighters were put in isolation.

The firefighters found out two days after a call to Life Care Center in KCK that the cardiac patient they took to Providence Medical Center tested positive for COVID-19 after he died.

The news has left the local firefighters union concerned about crews' health and safety.

11. Our first documented case here in NC came from someone visiting that facility in WA.

Then he flew all the way back to NC, with a layover in Dallas first.
