I personally know more than 20 who have tested positive for covid19, 19 of whom have been hospitalized, and one who died from it. All of them are residents of a long term care facility. There are over 40 residents now infected at that center. Pray that no other residents die.
My prayer's are with you Billy. God bless...

Just look up the absolute death rate in one area over a period of time .... comparing last year to this year....... and you will see the extent of death the virus has caused.
My own analytical determination, you may call it guided paranoia, is because it took several days for this notion of Mr. Floyd having covid19, it is probably somekind of ploy to make his murder, not a murder, but let us wait on that one.

Ah! Have you ever asked yourself why are all the deaths these days are covid verses the diseases people were dying from before? Where are the mass graves and why isn't social media blown up over the deaths of all their loved ones?
I would not ask myself, I would google death statistics for Heart Failure in March or whatever other cause of death you are curious about. The figures are available. What exactly is the question? Take a look at Hark Island, New York Covid 19 burials, stare at the images. Be informed. It is all real.

It is a plague, brought on my our Father or by man, makes no difference for our Father has allowed it.

One thing our Father has not allowed over the years, and that is that mankind destroys the World before His time. Praise God, amen.

God did warn in revelation that there would be plague in Babylon and that to come out of her lest you partake in it. For the Israelites this was real as back in the time of Exodus they had the ten plagues.
In revelation it is 7. But this one is on a global scale.

It is not as big or devastating as the spanish flu though in 1918 or Black Plague in the middle ages. But it depends on how you look at it we now have more knowledge on how to prevent it. Back then nobody knew about viruses or how germs spread. Nobody really knew that vitamin C could prevent scurvy when millions died from it. People didnt know that AIDS was spread sexually. People would die of typhoid because they didnt have proper sanitation. Before refrigeration, people would die from eating rotten food. and people didnt know that lead and asbestos were toxic, or that DDT would end up killing more than insects. or that people would get radiation poisoning from nuclear fallout, or that you could get melanoma from the sun and holes in the ozone layer. Now people know you can have heart attack from being a workaholic or eatting too much junk food. some people die because they drink 2 bottles of coca cola a day!

in nz We had more people died of spanish influenza than world war 1 casualties combined. when it got to samoa which is a tiny island nation, it devastated their population.

We had about 14 deaths here of covid-19 and some cases in the hospital up the road from me. But many have recovered thank God. I think it didnt spread as badly here because of lockdown measures. But we had warning about it, its just that the people travelling overseas that picked it up had no symptoms at first and they could have been infectious and didnt quarantine.

we had clusters traced back to weddings, resthomes and boarding schools, where it can spread quickly. Hopefully there is no second wave of it here but borders such as they are are remaining closed.

Just as the Israelites obeyed and stayed at home and had a passover dinner, we did the same and stayed at home and had dinner with our own families. Although I dont recall how long they need to stay put for as Pharoah let them go after his firstborn son died.

Well I heard ..from the news duh lol.. odd but its "now turning into a mild case..like the flu." What?

What ever one wants to call this, its not from God.. God did not allow it. We've watched ..wow things happen over the last week that God had no hand in.. didn't allow. This is a fallen world. Satan is the god of this world. Christ..said..if this was my kingdom my servants would fight so I was not turned over to you.

"No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;" So I don't care what we see hear feel.. God can not lie and He is always watching over His word to preform it.

Of coarse it is. God has put each and every man and woman in time out.We have destroyed His world!
Do you realize how much this earth has restored itself? Nothing has changed. The billionaires still have their billions. Our employer's have been paid. So, you are getting paid, Right?
I get paid every Thursday.

So, you did'nt work around other co-worker's?
Yeah, many co-workers but fairly evenly spaced out, not as a result of any restrictions though. Have to get temperature check before start of each shift and everyone is required to wear a mask. They had social distancing tape by the time clocks but after a couple days it was generally ignored. People have the masks on but some don't actually wear them. Not supposed to be in groups of more than 10 but at breaks and lunch the breakroom is packed. I just go outside for breaks and lunch and avoid the crowds.

some people will not believe anything until it really happens to THEM.
while it is natural to sceptical, it can also be foolish if you choose to ignore everything.

Do some investigation and be smart. Without knowledge, the people perish...and that has proven to be the case. Ignorance isnt always bliss.

well its still around.
why people arent being smart about it and testing for it for people whove been overseas or letting them climb aboard airplanes and travel I dont know why.

it should be...every airline HAS to have a medical testing for every single passenger and adequate quarantine facilities before they are allowed out of the airport.

we know how to quarantine plants and food and animals for biosecurity but it seems with humans we dont.
what were ellis island and other islands for then?!

sorry I just want to get it out there. ways to prevent a pandemic. When I was looking after hundreds of indoor plants infested with mealy bug and suggested plant quarantine well my boss was like no just leave them in situ spray them without a mask or gloves and Im like are you kidding me.

I have surgery scheduled Friday, so I got my first covid19 test today. They took a six inch swab, stuck it up each nostril (believe they were trying to get it into by brain) and moved it around for twenty seconds in each nostril.

...cleared your sinus's though. Sounds dreadful. I do pray that the surgery is effective without complications.

It was murder. However, Shortness of breath is one of the leading symptoms of covid and could have contributed. Who knows...
