    I did not realize that SARS and MERS were coronaviruses. They've been acting like this is something new and unheard of.

    This is from the article that @sweet16 posted

    Coronavirus Mass Hysteria - American Greatness
    The SARS-CoV coronavirus was the cause of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in 2002. The MERS-CoV coronavirus caused the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in 2012. Remember the Bird flu in 2005 and the Swine flu pandemic in 2009? Then there was the Ebola virus panic between 2014-2016 and the Zika virus scare in 2018.

    Because of the over-hype of this virus, the NCAA and other organizations where people congregate have to overreact. Reason? Lawyers.

    The dangerous part of all this is when it blows over, people will remember the over-hype. If something really dangerous comes along they will ignore the media, ignore the CDC, and a lot of people will die.

    I don't know where the two additional cases are, but it looks like Kentucky is up to 8.

    Ohio remains at 3 confirmed cases, which were all up near Cleveland.

    This is the worst part of the media hype.

    Based on all the incompetence surrounding effectively diagnosing, quarantining, testing, treating and eliminating the Coronavirus in Americans we very well may already be in the stage where people are ignoring what they are being told. Only the elderly die from it though so it’s all good.

    Hearing rumors that BCTCS (the Community College on UK's Campus) is going to be online instruction only for at least two weeks after spring break.
    UK to make an announcement by the end of the week if they are going to be making any changes

    Among the growing cancellations I've heard about are the prohibiting of visitors from nursing homes. I agree with this for sure. But wow, how sad. This is what most elderly live for... Sorry to be the ray of sunshine this morning. lol.

    I don't know if they already do this but it would sure be nice if the nursing homes setup areas where the elderly can Skype/FaceTime their loved ones on nice big monitors. Or something like that.

    Two more in Harrison County, making 5 total for the county. Two in Fayette and one in Jefferson. 8 total in Kentucky.

    The two new cases are a 60 year-old male and 54 year-old female. All five Harrison County cases are linked.

    Guess that's why KSR decided not to do a remote show there today.

    Any idea how the original person contracted it?

    They are trying to determine that.
