    I saw a news story this morning that one guy got charged over $3400 for the test. Insurance covered $2000 and he got billed for the balance. Who can afford that? If that’s the price, people are going to avoid testing for sure. Has anyone else heard anything about the cost of the test?

    What you've just described was pointed out in a recent article (sry, can't rememeber where now - I' think I'm consuming too much info on coronavrus) where they compared italy (whoch has been hit hard by the virus) where people can get tested for free (beacuse of socialism thank you very much) and so they are actually getting tested, to the US where you have to dish out a lot of money (on top of my head I remember the price being in the $3000s range, so on par to what you've just quoted), meaning that not everyone can afford to get tested here, meaningg that it's going to be more difficult to contain, etc.

    I'm of the opinion that...if a person was killed in a head-on collision with a Mack truck and an autopsy was performed and found he carried the Caronavirus.... the reports would be Caronavirus killed another.
    Democrats are doing more to destroy our country than the Russians could ever hope to do.

    My concern has ramped up from a 2 to a 4 maybe .. maybe a 5. The KungFu Flu has only three confirmed cases in Cuyahoga County near Cleveland in the north of Ohio, but the warnings from the TV, Doctors and the CDC are sounding alot more serious. Ominous might be a better word. I read often about the deaths at the nursing home in Washington. The death rate there is spreading. Is it because the close proximity of everyone in the close building that the virus is jumping from person to person because that can't distance themselves ??
    This is exactly like the black plague .... in the cities where the black plaque was, the local powers ordered all folks to be shuttered in their houses and not allowed to leave. This action is what made the plague explode as people all stuck in their houses, everyone then could be bitten by the fleas and catch the plague. The plague then jumped to everyone in the house..... in every house ... in every borrough and county. Because people could not distance them selves from the sick. So ... is history repeating itself with the Life Care Center nursing home in Kirkland as a clear and prime example of how to spread the disease to others quickly and enmasse ??

    No, it was Trump's fault for not shutting down the fossil-fuel trucking industry.

    "Flu has killed 20K Americans including 136 children so far this season, CDC says" and it was not the current virus.

    "CDC said that so far this season, 34 million people have gotten the flu, and about 20,000 have died."
    Your odds are still much higher with this flu than the current end of the world bug.

    Is this the new normal for trying to stop any new virus that might pop up from now on?
    Might not be the healthiest thing for the human race in the long run.

    Yes, but again, is the flu handled as this virus has been handled? No.

    Comparing deaths to non deaths. A lot is done to stop the or reduce risk from the flu . has been for years . Not much is done with the new one yet and it no were near as serious.

    As a matter of fact, not thing like this is done for the flu. It is accepted as a fact of life.
    We are urged to get the flu shot and wash our hands, and that’s about it.
