New York City: Two More Coronavirus Cases; Total: 4

New York City:  Two More Coronavirus Cases; Total: 4
25 Comments

Two more people have been confirmed to have the coronavirus in New York City, Mayor de Blasio said Thursday – bringing the total number in the Big Apple to four.

The patients are a man in his 40s and a woman in her 80s, a source told The Post.

Meanwhile, tests on 25 other people have come back negative, the Mayor said on “Morning Joe.”

The other two confirmed cases are Lawrence Garbuz, 50, a midtown lawyer hospitalized in stable condition at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center, and a 39-year-old health-care worker who returned from a trip to Iran and is recovering in her Manhattan apartment.

With the latest cases, the total number of people infected with COVID-19 in the state now stands at 13.

On Wednesday, officials revealed that nine people linked to Garbuz, who lives in New Rochelle in Westchester County, tested positive — and some 1,000 people were asked to self-isolate.

They include his wife, two of his children and several neighbors.

    You know, I’m 57 but don’t remember this much fear and concern from previous viral outbreaks. It could be that I’m paying more attention now?

    Have people considered something not talked about much?

    Maybe this is part of YHVH’s judgment on this sinful world.

    We have all seen full well how far down the toilet this world has gone. For the last couple years a lot of people have felt like we are in the End Times or Last Days.

    There were Blood Moons, the Great Solar eclipse that stretched across America from Washington to Florida; the Revelation 12 sign in the heavens, plus many reports of Near Earth Objects heading close to earth.

    That is a lot of warning signs. If you check the internet there are Biblical plagues like huge swarms of locusts, and waters turning red like blood;

    We've all considered that World War III could easily start soon. Maybe the Seals on the scroll of Revelation 5 have been opened? (It’s an awesome scene described there - everyone should read it!)

    I just think we would do well to consider how close we might be to a time of Great Tribulation on this earth.

    If ever there was a time to get serious about God, it would be now.

    If the timing is wrong, getting right with your Creator is never a bad thing. You won’t regret it.

        Coming soon, a rebadged No-Tell Motel, for Clandestine Quarantines, in a heavily populated center near you. Watch unguarded inmates walk over to the 7-11 right off of I-10 when they get the munchies, infecting everything in their path. The coffee maker, the beverage counter, the clerk themselves. And for 24 days no one knows where the virus is coming from while all of these weary travelers come back home. I think that you-tuber who put a camera up in a back alley where drug deals were taking place, and for $5 you would get a minute of air time to tell people off would be a great idea to put up around quarantine zones. "Get your infected azz back inside! "

        It’s likely everywhere now, so I think the points is mute. Same reason I think that The government is dragging its feet. They know it’s everywhere but are hoping the system can absorb it and OT have to fully acknowledge the threat.

      Well so far that is the only way they CAN treat it. There is no cure per se, no vaccine, no special medication. They must treat for the respiratory conditions it causes - much like the flu.

    My husband was up in WA yesterday (the wally world driver) He said that he had never seen the pick up area so crowded. People are now ordering online and having supplies brought to their car. There were so many people doing that that they were spilling out of the area designated for pickups. AND still no message from the mother ship about how to handle the virus. (rolls eyes)

    Most powerful weapon is prayer! If we all ask Yeshua (JESUS) for forgiveness of our sins, repent and pray to Him with a sincere heart, He will help us, however His will be done!
    Do not fear he who can put the flesh to death, rather He who can put to death the flesh and soul!
    Anxious times indeed, we're all in this together, we can pray together! Love thy neighbor, as thyself!
    Our redemption is near!
    Blessings to all! PRAY, IT'S EASY!

      Aren't we familiar with the Passover ???? In Egypt Lambs blood was put on the doorways to sheild , protect from the Angel of Death. Even though Jesus was not born yet the Lamb had significance even back then ....... the Lamb IS Jesus....the Lamb of God. Jesus shed his blood on the cross for US. By accepting Jesus you are accepting and are to receive the protection and shield of the Lamb....Jesus.

      Thank you brother, will you please say a prayer for me? I have multiple pre-existing conditions that make me high-risk & I'm currently not doing too well. I'm facing potential surgery (been avoiding going to doctors because I know it's not going to be pleasant but will likely need to go soon). I can't imagine how I will fare facing this virus crisis, just prepping the best I can do despite timing being incredibly bad. My only hope is in Yeshua. If you or anyone else here in Christ would pray for me I would be so grateful, God bless.
      • This commment is unpublished.
        Gregg Walker · 2 months ago
        Just prayed. Don’t be anxious about it. Ask the Father to make your way clear - whether to have surgery or not. Ask Him to protect you through it in Yeshua’s name (yes you can say Jesus’ name),
        I’ve been there. It can be scary, but he’s always pulled me through!

    So. How are they verifying these folks have the virus? Doesn’t anyone else find it odd that we’re getting these random one or two positive testings in different states? CDC had a very limited criteria on how they would be willing to test. So how is it that they have the ability to test for these one or two here and there (which we all know if it’s one or two it’s 50 or 60) but they can’t test more people more frequently... I know they say we are short on test kits but how then are these getting done? This whole situation just stinks...
    • This commment is unpublished.

      The tests are a joke and NOT accurate; some people are requiring testing up to 6 times before a positive result is given (person in San Antonio testing negative but then tested again and was positive. Was released after first test but before second test was known...tracked down after spending two hours at the mall!). Add to the fact that they are only testing people with a connection to the virus and those that have traveled to a hot spot in the world. There was an article yesterday I read where a woman was showing every sign of the virus yet they refused to test her because she did not meet one of the preset criteria. Bureaucracy will kill more people that the disease; little people with power are dangerous indeed.

      The Chinese said CT Scans were better than test kits. We have CT Scanners. I don't know why the CDC is still f-ing around with a test that doesn't work.
      • This commment is unpublished.
        DD7 · 2 months ago
        CT scans are definitely good at showing what's going on in the lungs, better than X-rays although CTs emit a lot of radiation.
      • This commment is unpublished.
        HeyJude · 2 months ago
        Yes the CT scans are definitive for a type of pneumonia I think they called "ground glass" which seems to be correlated recently with COVID infection. However, this type of pneumonia is not exclusive to COVID19. It can and has been found in other types of pneumonia and is not a new phenomenon. And yes, hospitals use CT scans regularly to diagnose pneumonia and any lung infiltration.

    Last night, hal told his viewers that his sources have said, there is going to three waves of this virus within the next 18 months which will wipeout 60 percent of the worlds population. Also, he mentioned that his sources has said, there is only 45 days of reserve prescription medicine left.
    At first we was told to prep for 2 to 3 days, then 2 weeks, then 4 to 6 weeks. With a virus holocaust of three waves happening during the next 18 months, prepping shouldnt be a temporary band aid anymore. We all should have a prepping way of life now. IF you are able to go to the store, instead of buying 1 of something, buy 2. Two is considered one. There will be rationing happening . There is so much turmoil and misery headed our way according to hals broadcast last night.
    Brace yourself and prep everyDAY.

      I decided to go to a local Walmart (NW Phx metro area) last night for some daily needs- milk, eggs, etc. The usual. My wife was there on Tuesday afternoon- all was completely normal. 24 hours later- the cleaning supplies were wiped out. dry beans and rice- wiped out save a few small bags of beans I guess people don't care for- maybe a dozen bags, tops. There were several other holes on various items (salsas for instance- staple in AZ- AZ ketchup)...very strange indeed! Paper products were fine. Spoke to a few employees- they said people are climbing racks to get the stuff up on top. Powdered milk was expected last night- was not expected to last an hour this morning. The murmur among the employees was generally that people were acting crazy. Not at all low-key and stealthy. Amazing what a difference 24 hours makes though. I may go back today just out of curiosity. Did see one older woman wearing a mask. Old folk can do that and not look the least bit "odd".

        2 weeks ago I was at a Costco, and I had my cart loaded. There was an old woman 75'ish who's cart was loaded too. She asked me if I was preparing for the Pandemic, I said "Yes, it's easier to prepare now than during a panic." She smiled. I saw her in line and the woman at the register said to the old lady after looking at her cart : " Wow, are you going to be able to eat all of this?" I had to chuckle. I butted in: " If she can't, she will be selling it to others for 10x what she bought it for." The Costco employee had a perplexed look on her face as the reality started to set it.

        I went to Target on Tuesday (Florida) and there were still plenty of rice & beans but there were noticeable empty spots on shelves, which appeared to be mostly due to sale items which is typical. How it is now I don't know. My feeling is that the truly empty shelves won't come until the virus is announced at the county level.

          Oblivious, deniers, nay-sayers...heard the gamut. I'm not prone to fear- but high-alert watchfulness, strategic, preventative. I act before others do if I feel there will be a "run" on something...I plan vacations well before or well after everyone else does (major holidays), especially outdoors activities- I like to have it to myself! I'm just a strategy player and watcher. I don't fear death, The Lord knows my expiration date and I do not believe I can affect it, but I exercise a mountain of logical prudence. Guess that's how He made me.
