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.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
