"The people of Alabama DO NOT want the coronavirus brought here," Rep. Bradley Byrne said on Twitter. "I’m fighting to bring this to a full stop. Leave these people in the place they came to, don’t spread them around the US, and keep them OUT of Alabama. The risk is much too high."

Were those FEMA facilities built for disease containment? Or were they built to house people displaced by disaster?
There is a difference.
The Alabama-based center that will house coronavirus patients provides advanced training to first responders and is equipped with the nation’s only hospital facility used to prepare health care workers for disaster response.....as well as a clinical and isolation ward used for training.

The quote didn’t really answer the question? Is it a training facility?
Train at the nation’s premier all-hazards training center! FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP), located in Anniston, Alabama, is the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s only federally chartered Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) training center. The CDP is committed to having an emergency response community prepared for and capable of responding to all-hazards events. They identify, develop, test, and deliver training to state, local, and tribal emergency response providers.
The problem is that every time you move people with a disease, you're taking a chance that you are introducing that disease into the area you're moving it to.
HHS said the facility in Anniston was chosen because it's one of the most advanced training centers for medical first responders in the nation and is equipped with a fully self-contained hospital and 48 dorm rooms where the patients can he housed.
"Something could escape. A worker or somebody who's infected. And then I could come in contact with that or anybody else that works out in the Fort McClellan area" said Nathan Young who lives and works around the CDP.
"as well as a clinical and isolation ward used for training."
Regardless if it is used for training or not, it either is or isn't capable of containing disease.

They should suspend all flights and out of country travels right now, and stop counting money.
There is still time to stop this, but we need to act now.
