Nursing Home Hit by Coronavirus Says It Still Lacks Test Kits


SEATTLE — A week after a deadly coronavirus outbreak was reported inside a nursing care facility in the Seattle suburbs, officials from the nursing home said on Saturday that they still do not have access to enough test kits for its remaining residents.

Tim Killian, a spokesman for Life Care Center of Kirkland, Wash., where 13 residents with the virus have died since last weekend, said that the tests so far provided by health officials were insufficient. The nursing home described a continuing crisis even as a strike team from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, including doctors and nurses, arrived on site to help the facility.

The home had received 45 virus testing kits as of Saturday afternoon, Mr. Killian said, which was not enough for the 63 residents still inside Life Care and dozens of staff members who have continued working at the facility through the outbreak.

I told my wife I was going to take a week off from the news about Corona, but said if it hits here in our city/county, then likely that will go out the door.

20 minutes later... this happens...

It's HERE in our county. Wish I knew what part of the county.

TOPEKA, Kan. —
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment confirmed its first presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in Kansas.

The presumptive positive case case was identified Saturday with testing sent to KDHE’s Kansas Health and Environmental Laboratories. These results will be verified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lab but will be treated as positive unless determined otherwise.

Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly said Saturday at a news conference the presumptive positive case was a woman from Johnson County.

Another news site said...

The patient, a women under 50, had recently traveled to the east coast of the US, and her symptoms allegedly began March 1. Authorities said she "did everything right" in her efforts to avoid spreading the virus and visited the doctor immediately after she began feeling sick.

And another with more details...

Beverly said the woman had traveled to the northeastern United States, where there are cases of the coronavirus, but otherwise couldn’t confirm how the woman was exposed to the virus.

About masks.

The NZ government has said they have 9 million n95 masks and 9 million surgical masks stockpiled for a pandemic scenario. We have less than 5 million people.

The US government has said they have 12 million n95 masks (plus another 5 million expired n95 masks) and 30 million surgical masks stockpiled. The population of the US is around 330 million people.

Think about that. They said they estimate they would need 3 billion masks in a worst case scenario. They have around one third of one percent of the n95 masks they need in the US.

That’s why they are telling you not to wear masks! They’re incompetence and shortsightedness means their medical staff have no protection.

That’s also why they are so reluctant to test people. Every time you test someone the doctor has to wear an n95 mask to protect against infection, as the nature of the test induces coughing and sneezing. But the mask is then contaminated and needs to be carefully replaced and discarded before seeing another patient.

Those n95 masks are like gold. Many hospitals are down to one or two packs left and no promise of any more coming anytime soon. They want to conserve the masks for when the epidemic hits and even then they’ll probably run out.

That’s why the nursing home workers in Seattle only have surgical masks, they don’t want to waste them on lowly care home staff who are probably already infected.

The incompetence of the whole American response is staggering to me. If I was American I would be furious. I can’t believe they only recently required manufacturers to ramp up production last week, they’ve known about this since January.

Incompetent #####!


I just checked Ebay and there is someone there selling the N95 mask 10 packs for $215.00. Shipping is extra. So yeah, seems some people stocked up on these masks with more than their own personal health in mind.

Kansas has the ability to run roughly 60 tests for the coronavirus each day at its state lab. For caregivers and family members, the short turnaround is a “godsend compared to a five-day turnaround, which is very upsetting for everybody involved,” Lee Norman, secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, said on Wednesday.

I would be interested to see the effects on the reproductive system after 'recovering' from this virus
The jury is still out if we recover at all.
The long term effects are completely unknown
Unbelievable to see the start of this thing and the spread,
Infuriated at my government for taking such irresponsible and dangerous measures,dragging their feet
we have truly lost our soul allowing our most vulnerable in to be placed in danger.


EDIT: The paper in questions has been withdrawn from link, but you can still find it at:www.researchgate.net...

There was a POST about a paper, long ago in the thread, that stated that the virus has a "harmonic relationship" with chromosome 4 and 13. It is still unknown if this is correct or if it damages in some way our DNA. I'm no medic, so take this with a huge grain of salt.

From Chromosome 4 - Genetics Home Refrence - NIH:



Other changes in the number or structure of chromosome 4 can have a variety of effects including delayed growth and development, intellectual disability, distinctive facial features, heart defects, and other medical problems. Changes involving chromosome 4 include an extra piece of the chromosome in each cell (partial trisomy 4), a missing segment of the chromosome in each cell (partial monosomy 4), and a circular structure called a ring chromosome 4. Ring chromosomes occur when a chromosome breaks in two places and the ends of the chromosome arms fuse together to form a circular structure.


also


Changes in chromosome 4 have been identified in several types of human cancer. These genetic changes are somatic, which means they are acquired during a person's lifetime and are present only in certain cells. For example, rearrangements (translocations) of genetic material between chromosome 4 and several other chromosomes have been associated with leukemias, which are cancers of blood-forming cells.


Chromosome 13 - Genetics Home Refrence - NIH:



Changes in chromosome 13 have been associated with several types of cancer. These genetic changes are somatic, which means they are acquired during a person's lifetime and are present only in certain cells. The loss of genetic material from the middle of chromosome 13 is common in cancers of blood-forming cells (leukemias), cancers of immune system cells (lymphomas), and other related cancers.


Not sure if this could damage our reproductive organs/system. But my question would be these 2:
Could it damage our future generations in someway?
Could the majority of the people that get infected develop some sort of cancer that are regulated by these chromosomes?

Any doctor in the house?

Washington nursing home deaths could be higher


The number of deaths linked to coronavirus in Washington state could be even higher than the 16 already announced based on figures released by the nursing home at the center of the region’s outbreak.

The Life Care Center of Kirkland said Saturday that since Feb. 19, 26 of its residents have died. Typically, about three to seven residents die at the facility each month.

Of the 26 who died, 15 did so at hospitals where they were tested for COVID-19. But 11 died at the nursing home, and Life Care said it has no information about post-mortem tests to see if those 11 had the coronavirus.

The facility also said that 70 of its 180 employees have symptoms and are no longer working.

Easy link for all 3, it ain’t vaccines either.

China sends nuclear scientists to help Iran, this is known to many govt but they won’t bring it into open.

Italy has a meaningful Chinese community I believe it’s in Lombardy area and was posted here.

Nothing to do with vaccines. Simple humans traveling around.

Notice Italy won’t release ethnic data? Why do you think that is?



I’m not so sure we need to brush off vaccines so easily. Most likely this virus is not a wild virus. This could be from a bio weapons plant or a vaccine laboratory. Both play with deadly Frankenstein virus in the laboratory. A mistake by a technician or anyone could have been the catalyst for the spread of the Coronavirus.

Just a basic understanding of the nature of vaccines and what they do, should make them very much a part of the investigations. Maybe they didn’t cause it but perhaps enhanced the spread of the virus.

It no secret vaccines have side effects, I think we might be seeing some of the side effects of vaccines with what we see in some people symptoms and reactions to the virus.

Now if vaccines had even just a bit of play in the spread of the Coronavirus, I doubt the CDC (those who control the CDC big Pharmaceuticals) would be excited about sending test that might point to vaccines as part of the problem.

So I’ll keep plugging along in this theory, but I do appreciate your input.

In the meantime keep safe and clean.

Edit: I meant to include Flu shots into the equation too.
