This sounds like a warning from President Trump that something is coming bigger than the current deep state coup attempt, which is failing.
Druggists throughout the country noted an unusually high demand for quinine, which some health authorities had suggested as a possible remedy—though medical journals warned against the dangers of self-medicating and urged people to simply let the disease run its course.
New York City recorded the highest number of deaths, with 2,503, although Boston, with a smaller population, was harder hit on a per-capita basis. The total U.S. death toll was just under 13,000, according to the U.S. Census Office, out of about 1 million worldwide.
The Russian influenza wasn’t entirely finished, however. It returned several times in subsequent years. Fortunately, a large portion of the U.S. population was immune by then, having been exposed to it during its first visit.
Today, the Russian influenza is largely forgotten, overshadowed by the far more devastating Spanish influenza of 1918. But it did give Americans a preview of life—and death—in an increasingly interconnected world.

That's not how I read it.
People re-entering Canada from a foreign country must quarantine themselves for 14 days.
Health Canada asked the RCMP to help enforce the Act, so now because some idiot or idiots broke the law, those mandated to quarantine themselves will be watched very closely for compliance - and, I think, rightly so.
The RCMP don't f@*k around, so I hope nobody does anything reckless to warrant an arrest. The potential penalties are steep but, knowing what I do about human nature, in my mind, "all is fair in love and war" - and, are we not at war with a potentially lethal virus right now?

ETA, one neighborhood was Fox Point. That is an affluent neighborhood, as is most of that area of Milwaukee County.
I think it's close to where my son attends college, which is Concordia U. in Mequon.
While I'm in an open post-window, I'll drop this here:
I guess the orchestrators of the grand scheme to replace Trump with Biden, simply brush-off deaths of their own followers in this manner, as "acceptable collateral damage".
Washington Post Journalist-Reporter Darran Simon Commits Suicide.
Comment: When you look at Darran's Twitter history, you get the feeling that he tweeted and re-tweeted so many CoronaVirus bad news stories, that the singular-focus on nothing but negatives, led him to depression/suicide.

SNL is cabal. Possibly a CIA operation

Have an acquaintance who went into total shut down because they considered themselves high risk. Is now questioning whether the economic melt down was worth it and whether or not we shouldn't have just been more vigilant and paid our dues like Sweden.

I have been wondering why the US is the hardest hit by this Virus.
Not the most populated country.
Not the poorest country.
Not the country with the worst health care.
Not the country with the worst hygiene.
Not the most densely populated country.
Not the country with the worst response.
The list goes on, but I would think countries like India would take a worse hit.
