CDC is another government agency that has been destroyed by mission creep. It is way past time to trim its staffing and get it back to what it is supposed to do, disease control.

This makes no sense. Doesn't it take 14 days for the disease to manifest after one is infected? Never mind; I want America to get back to work. Forget the CDC. They're not running things just like Gates, Biden, Cuomo, and the rest of the clowns out there aren't running things.

Still, a notable portion of the public—particularly conservatives—believes that the virus emerged from a laboratory rather than nature, according to a new poll released on Wednesday. Three-in-10 (29%) say it most likely was created in a lab—23% believe the current strain of the coronavirus was developed intentionally in a laboratory; another 6% say it was most likely made accidentally in a lab, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

This would more than triple the rooms now under contract. The city already has committed $35 million for the next three months to lease the first batch of units. The overall effort would cost San Francisco roughly $105 million — some but not all of which would be reimbursed by the federal and state governments.
