  1. Hmmmmmmmm may God help us ooo

  2. Situation under control, yet you should have seen the level of confusion at the state Hospital when the most likely case came in, before he passed on. No isolation unit, no protective gear, no SOP's to follow/guide. It was only the high level of suspicion by the resident that forestalled a disaster from occurring. What's the level of preparedness of the state? With the shameful, alarming, deplorable state of sanitation in the state, we're only playing lip service. Playing politics with everything. A doctor has died, 57, mostly medical staff, under surveillance.. It is well.
