Your claim of "emergent" was in the context of a process too rushed to ask questions, which this was clearly not.  This wasn't someone rolled into an ER having a STEMI, that's a situation where figuring out cost obligations isn't feasible due to an emergent situation, making arrangements to continue a quarantine in the US is not the same context.

But to your point, no, I don't agree that returning to the US is clearly beneficial for these people, there's not good evidence that they are less likely to get or to die from the Coronavirus by being here or by flying back in a plane with those with confirmed coronavirus infections.

Again, it was plain from the article that there are STILL no clear answers to the questions you believe the evacuees should have asked.

We don't have to agree.

The mere fact that the government had no solid answer for these people at the time the article was published this week, indicates to me that the concerns are valid.

Just as health experts calling for the lowering of fees for the indigent and uninsured needing testing, is validation enough for me to know the concerns are valid.

We definitely don't agree with one another, and that is perfectly fine.

So the idiot that is our IMPOTUS stated at the CDC, that "I don't want Mike Pence to be complimentary to that governor (Jay Inslee of Washington), because that governor is a snake."  Pence was visiting Washington and praised the governor for the efforts to deal with COVID-19.  Um, this is the same cretin whose administration and family members were complaining about Democrats politicizing this situation.  What an ignorant buffoon.  He loves to display his lack of intelligence and his base eats it up.  To quote Tweety- "Days without Trump being an embarrassment to this country-0".

There's one standard of conduct for liberals. 

An entirely different standard for conservatives. 

And there's no standard for Trump at all...anything goes.

As a citizen of Washington State who is witnessing the distress here, the only  word that comes to mind is jack**. Unfortunately, his supporters here, of which there are many, will nod in agreement.

Now on his fourth White House chief of staff, Trump has overseen a remarkable level of turnover in a White House that has been defined by staff shakeups and firings by tweet.

I can't keep up, but apparently like during his reality show run, his favorite phrase is "you're fired".

Nothing to see here, nothing to hold the President accountable, big yawn, just another day.

Trump made exaggerated and false claims about his record on immigration, health care, and the opening of liquified natural gas plants in Louisiana.

Trump misled on what polls say about his administration’s response to the coronavirus.

Trump falsely claimed Sen. Bernie Sanders is a communist. His attacks on Hunter Biden were misleading or lacked evidence.

Just another day of a dangerous despot trying to hang on to power anyway he can.

The lies and misinformation have worked with the Cult thus far, so that is what he will continue to do.

KY has its first case of coronavirus.

And the person is from one of the counties served by my HD.

Since we do not test for it, my guess is the patient, first went to the community hospital in her tiny city, because she was airlifted to university hospital.

This is a tiny, rural, city. Tobacco used to be the big crop grown.

International travel, is highly unlikely.

We need to be doing what China did, as the outbreak started, and that fever clinics, testing with four results, and quarantine centers.

Most cases in China, were spread family member to family member.

Expecting people to self quarantine with family members is folly.

Not having enough testing kits is also folly.

Telling people to simply go about their business is stupid.

From the NY Times:

How To Qurantine Yourself

If you read the piece, you will discover it is pretty difficult to do.

And if you have no paid sick time, and live paycheck to paycheck, it is even harder to do.

Thinking about the case in my area, I know how small the staff of the community hospital is.

They will HAVE to self quarantine, and that will affect care of their remaining patients.

Not to mention how many people the infected person came into contact with, in such a small community.

The 'go about your business' line is purely in place to prevent panic, and to prevent the public from noticing that those in charge have no idea what they are doing.

Notice how he points toward himself while giving scientists credit.

Read the story, complete with ALL the moronic statements, on WaPo online:

'Maybe I have a natural ability': Trump Plays Medical Expert

The things he says are truly outrageous, even for Trump.

I do agree that he has natural ability, in that it seems to come to him naturally to behave like an idiot.

He seems to require no practice.
