KIRKLAND, Wash. -- The number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Washington state topped 100 on Saturday, including 16 deaths. The Washington State Department of Health announced more than 20 new cases Saturday, saying a total of 102 people in the state have tested positive for the novel coronavirus. That figure did not include the first case in Kittitas County, which was also reported Saturday. King County has now confirmed 71 cases, including 15 deaths, in what remains the nation's worst outbreak. The two most recent deaths occurred on Friday, King County health officials said. One was a woman in her

Gov. Inslee of Washington made a completely inappropriate and snarky comment to VP Pence about Pence not believing in science re the coronavirus. How's that science workin' out for ya, gov? Now that your state seems to be ground zero for the US COVID-19 outbreak. Evidently some latter-day Typhoid Mary or Mario is running around the Puget Sound area spreading the germ. But I guess you'll lay the blame off on Trump and skate.

Inslee is a snake. Beyond that, clearly this is a dangerous virus for the elderly. One woman in her 70's and another in her 80's were the two deaths of patients from the Life Care Center of Kirkland that were announced today. Nobody seems to know, or at least they're not saying, how patients at this skilled nursing facility initially came to be infected with the coronavirus.

The biggest threats our country faces are not COVID-19, but the exposed dependence on China, globalization and the democrat party. I only hope the populace and elected officials are beginning to see the light. BTW, does it not seem the largest numbers of infections appear within the 'wokest' states and cities?

The worldwide death rate for this virus is around 3% what the hell is Washington doing, 15 deaths of 71 infections is 7 times the world wide average!

I was thinking exactly what the OP posted as a comment. I suspect that the homeless will have less robust immune systems, and certainly have lower cleanliness standards than most. Not hoping for deaths, but it seems a place where some special effort in advance should be made to avoid a debacle. Assuming that the lefties in charge actually care, which might be a bad assumption.

I read that when testing for the virus in the early stages it is present in the mouth/ nose area. As it progresses it can be found at the "other end" and is present in "poop." What will happen in those rabbit warren homeless encampments that cover the left coast? Power washing, sweeping etc., will only send it airborne to be inhaled by all within breathing distance.

There were about 37000 deaths due to motor vehicles in 2019 and around 70000 deaths from influenza. It's all about perception of risk I guess?

No one seems to want to talk about the obvious here. Washington wants open borders and refuses to check to see if people are illegal. The Chinese are getting through along with Hispanics and so let's face facts the likelihood is that illegals have brought the virus to these nursing homes through their staffs. The patients obviously are not in any condition to mix with the outside sources so it is clearly being brought to them thanks to the policies of Inslee whether he wants to admit it or not.

#5 as usual an uninformed calculation. We do not have a number of infected only a number of people who are seriously ill with the virus that are admitted to the hospital. That does not provide you with a death rate, you must gather an accurate number of infected which is difficult at this stage of the disease and we may never have an accurate number on that since most people recover and some don't even know they have it. Get a grip.

The state of Washington - especially in Kirkland - sure seems to have major problems with basic hygiene. Maybe Inslee should wash more and talk less.

He reportedly died late Thursday, two days after testing positive for the virus and shortly after it was announced he was recovering, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency, which called him a "veteran and revolutionary diplomat."

At least 34 people have been pulled from the rubble by 10pm, with around 36 more feared to be trapped underneath.

WASHINGTON – Young voters cheer Bernie Sanders' anti-establishment message. They turn out in throngs at his rallies. And they form the core of his grassroots efforts to win the Democratic presidential nomination. But their fiery passion did not translate into the robust turnout he needed on Super Tuesday to win a number of key states, notably in the South where a strong showing by former vice president Joe Biden has made the nomination contest a two-man race. Exit polls for five southern states that Biden won – Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia – found that young voters did not show

Stress, they say, is a killer. So let’s take a moment to feel sorry for Bill Clinton, who now claims he took advantage of Monica Lewinsky to “manage my anxieties” while president. Bill being Bill, there will be no real apology coming, just some typical and expected minimizing. “But whatever,” he says. “What I did was bad, but it wasn’t like — how can I think about the most stupid thing I could do and do it.” This is from a new documentary on Hillary, a for-hire job meant to canonize her and the would-be Clinton dynasty. And in typical Clinton fashion, they refuse to take the memo: Post-#MeToo, Bill is forever a liability.

With Joe Biden regaining his position as the Democratic front runner, the scrutiny of him by the right has renewed. When Biden looked like the helpless, distant finisher he was a few weeks ago, it wasn’t worth the energy. Things have changed in a hurry, though. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is still mumbling about billionaires, signaling that he’s not serious about doing what it takes to win the race. While Biden may represent a larger threat to Trump in a general election, he’s still a ripe target for political ridicule and the sights are starting to turn on one specific thing. Namely, the former Vice President’s mental health.

Except I don’t believe in magic – or coincidence, for that matter – when it comes to politics. Everything happens for a reason and, in the case of Democrats in particular, for personal or party gain (or both).

Now that the once-sprawling field of Democrats seeking the presidency has become a two-man race, many in the party are breathing a sigh of relief. All the more so because Joe Biden is the clear front-runner and the dreaded Bernie Sanders looks to be fading. So it’s all set. Biden will be the nominee and give the party a solid chance of scoring a November trifecta: beating President Trump, taking the Senate and holding the House. Count me as skeptical. Instead of a smooth ride, it’s more likely that the Dems’ desperate search for a Trump slayer will hit more turbulence and an alternative to Biden still could be necessary.

George Soros and other liberal billionaires are pushing large sums of cash into Chicago to back the far-left prosecutor whose office dropped charges against Jussie Smollett, the actor who staged a "hate crime" he attributed to Trump supporters. The reelection efforts of Kim Foxx, state's attorney for Cook County, Ill., received a boost from the Illinois Justice & Public Safety PAC. The committee, founded to support Foxx, has spent six figures on media productions and direct mail backing Foxx's candidacy, state records show, making it Foxx's largest backer so far. The PAC received its entire $2 million budget from a group created and funded by Soros.

For the most part, quarantine means sitting at home, wondering if my wife and I will test positive, too. It means getting up each morning and hoping you have no symptoms, getting dressed with nowhere to go — not work, not morning service at the synagogue, which is closed, too, not even shopping for groceries.
