Plenty of speculation is occurring about the coronavirus. Below are some facts that we have learned:
The governor of Delaware, John Carney, has issued a state of emergency. As of Thursday, March 12, the state has a total of 4 cases.
All of the cases have been related to the University of Delaware, where the first patient, a professor, was found to be presumptive positive. The other three cases involve graduate students and a researcher. All of the patients are self-quarantined at their homes and none are severely ill.
In Philadelphia, more restrictive measures are in place as the Commonwealth currently has a total of 22 cases, with more than half in Montgomery County. Governor Tom Wolfe has ordered that as of March 13, many venues be closed for 14 days. All schools, entertainment venues such as theaters, community centers, and gyms are included in this closure. In addition, mass gatherings of more than 250 people are being discouraged.
According to the governor’s plan, critical parts of infrastructure will remain open, such as hospitals, gas stations, grocery stores, mass transit, and government facilities
As part of a Montgomery County contingency plan in the event that large numbers of people need to be tested, tents are being set up in Eagleville, PA. People will be able to drive through and receive a test from the county health department without leaving their cars.
