COVID-19: Lakewood Police
Crash Another Wedding

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 3/27/2020 2:23:03 PM

Lakewood police cited yet another Jersey Shore wedding host for holding a large gathering during the coronavirus outbreak, authorities said. Officers responding to another call Thursday saw 40 or so people gathered on Wayne Street, Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer said Friday. They issued a summons to local resident William Katzenstein, 39, for "violating any rule or regulation adopted by the governor," the prosecutor said. Then everyone dispersed, he said. Lakewood police last week broke up 17 over-sized gatherings that violated state coronavirus prevention orders. They didn't arrest anyone, contrary to multiple media reports. Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order

Comments:

Lakewood accounts for 42% of the 468 positive cases of the Chinavirus in NJ's Ocean County as of Thursday, according to nj.com, yet the residents treat it like a joke.

So "violating a rule adopted by the governor" doesn't raise any red flags for anyone?

What is it about folks in the NE, especially around NY and NJ area? Knuckleheads seem way too common. IME, too many folks in the NE are arrogant jerks. Certainly a lot of exceptions, and I have had friends who live on LI, although most have moved away. Somehow just too entitled across the board, generally. They drive rudely, just rude all around, at least enough to make out of town folks not want to come back. Clearly not taking this seriously at all.

A party for 50 at a very upmarket Westport, CT, home sent many of them off to spread the virus to varioius destinations across the US and as far away as Johannesburg, South Africa. This is not joke. Fools can thumb their noses, but the virus IS highly contagious and spreads via these morons’ guests…

in the good old days, weddings did not take place during Lent - unless the bride was pregnant.

New York Attorney General Letitia James is leading a coalition to stop Texas from blocking abortions during the coronavirus pandemic, her office announced Friday. Earlier this week, Texas issued a directive banning all non-emergency surgeries and procedures, including abortions, to free up resources. “Texas and other states are using the coronavirus as an excuse to deny women their constitutional right to an abortion,” James said in a statement. “This is a full-on assault on women’s reproductive rights not only in Texas, but across the country, and I will not allow any state to usurp the rights of women enshrined in the Constitution.”

The reeling US newspaper industry will be eligible to tap a portion of the $2 trillion stimulus package that contains $349 billion earmarked for small businesses. But the potential rescue package comes too late to help dozens of newsrooms that have been slashing jobs as shuttered local businesses stop advertising. News advertising has plummeted between 20 and 30 percent in the past two weeks compared to a year ago, according to the International News Media Association. The Washingtonian stopped using freelancers, laid off all its fellows and instituted a 10 percent pay cut for surviving staffers. The Austin Chronicle is moving from a weekly

On Feb. 13, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent out an email with what the author described as an 'URGENT' call for help. The agency was struggling with one of its most important duties: keeping track of Americans suspected of having the novel coronavirus. It had 'an ongoing issue' with organizing—and sometimes flat-out losing—forms sent by local agencies about people thought to be infected. The email listed job postings for people who could track or retrieve this paperwork.(Snip) The documents—mostly emails—provide a behind-the-scenes peek into the messy early stages of the U.S. response

Two of the Navy’s newest aircraft carriers require a unique system to keep the toilets unclogged and cost $400,000 to fix each clog, a government watchdog said in a report released Tuesday. The USS Gerald R. Ford and USS George H.W. Bush, both based in Virginia, were constructed with a toilet system similar to those used on a commercial plane. But with 4,000 people on board the ship, the toilets require an acid flush of the system. “While each acid flush costs about $400,000, the Navy has yet to determine how often and for how many ships this action will need to be repeated,

The Bureau of Prisons failed to adequately monitor thousands of communications from more than 500 inmates with ties to terrorism, according to a Justice Department inspector general report released Wednesday. In the nearly 70-page report, Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz wrote that the BOP did not take appropriate steps to review the email, phone calls, postage mail, video sessions and cellblock conversations of domestic and international terrorist inmates. For example, the BOP failed to flag a letter that a high-risk inmate received from his wife detailing her intent to compromise a staff member at his prison. The BOP also missed a threatening letter

Governor Gretchen Whitmer from the Michigan Directorate has threatened to turn the eye of the state upon any doctor or pharmacist who would attempt to prescribe chloroquine to treat their patients suffering from coronavirus. Medical licenses may need to be revoked. The agency’s March 24 letter warns physicians and pharmacists of professional consequences for the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine). Beyond the rational recommendation against hoarding, the letter includes threats of “administrative action” against the licenses of doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine.

I have updated this chart a number of times, based on data from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control, and will continue to do so. It shows, for one thing, how far COVID-19 has to go before it equals the average seasonal flu mortality, worldwide. If I had to predict, I would guess that it will eventually reach the average level. Will it get to 2x the average number of flu deaths, worldwide? Looking at current trends, I don’t see how that will happen. But time will tell. Likewise in the U.S. You still can’t see the bar for COVID-19,
