The Seattle Times reported that two new COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Washington State.
One of them was in a King County woman and the other was in a Snohomish County teenager, according to a report from state and local officials on Friday night.
Two new COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Washington, in a King County woman and a Snohomish County teenager, state and local officials said on the night of June 28, 2020.
The woman was recently visiting South Korea, a country impacted by the outbreak. However, the Snohomish County patient, a high school student, did not recently travel to any nations negatively affected by SARS-CoV-2, what the novel coronavirus is being called, according to recent comments from Snohomish Health District officer Dr. Chris Spitters.
“It’s concerning that this individual did not travel, since this individual acquired it in the community,” Washington state health officer Dr. Kathy Lofy said during a news conference at the Department of Health Shoreline in Friday. “We really believe now that the risk is increasing.”
Both of these cases were deemed “presumptive positive,” while test results were confirmed at the Shoreline site on Friday. Additionally, the results are being sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for confirmation. A case waiting for confirmation from the CDC was also reported Friday in Oregon.
Apparently, the case in Oregon, two in California, and the new Snohomish County case do not appear connected to travel to a country experiencing the outbreak.
The Snohomish County student originally became ill on February 24, 2020 with a fever, body aches and a headache, and went to two clinics throughout the week, Spitters stated.
Because he was feeling better, he went back to school Friday morning. However, after his tests came back positive, he went home before attending class.
Officials sustained that the student became infected through a respiratory pathogen, even though they declared it’s still too early in the investigation. The student is currently quarantined at home and is “doing well,” according to Spitters report.
A number of students who have been in close contact with the teen have been quarantined at home for 14 days.
School district officials sent out a letter to Everett Public Schools families on Friday, announcing they would close the high school on March 2, 2020 to end three days of “deep disinfecting.”
“This is a rapidly changing situation, but please be assured the health and safety of our students are of utmost importance and we will keep everyone informed,” the letter stated.
The King County patient is a woman in her 50s, according to an account from Dr. Jeffrey Duchin, the health officer at Public Health – Seattle & King County. She came back to Washington from South Korea on February 23 and worked for one day before she started developing symptoms, Duchin stated. Subsequently, her husband called county health officials to inform them about her symptoms and travel history.
According to Duchin, the woman did not interact with the public during her workday and is at home recovering “without complications.”
The husband has not shown any symptoms and is currently under home quarantine.
“We have the ability to do more testing now, so we expect to see more cases, including community-acquired cases at some point,” Duchin asserted.
He stressed that COVID-19 mainly causes relatively mild infections, and that 80% of infected people have uncomplicated illnesses. Thus, these cases don’t require hospital care.
The 35-year-old Snohomish County man who was America’s first patient confirmed to have contracted the virus is considered fully recovered. The man had recently visited Wuhan, China, where the global outbreak initiated back in December.
The Wuhan virus is making many start to question the merits globalism.
After all, elites’ fetish with open borders is starting to make nation states dysfunctional in the face of health crises of this sort.
Countries will need to rethink open borders and restore some degree of national sovereignty to address the many problems of the 21st century.
Cleveland Indians are Joining in the PC Radicalism by Discussing a Name Change
Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.
The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.
“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.
The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”
“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”
In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.
The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.
The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
