Even with 1083 cases in Moses Lake, that is still only 04% of the population. And it says that we had 246 per 100,000 residents.... .0024 of the population.. and we shut down our economy because of this.??

Quincy is the worst. Anyone care to take a guess? Maybe L&I should stop bye, they can stop this right? (Eyeroll)...

You can slow the spread but it simply cannot be stopped, no matter what steps are taken. Herd immunity is the only way to beat this thing. Time to lose the masks and let'r rip!

Gotta agree with you, the chinese flu virus is loose. That damn thing won't listen to anyone. The people who were paying attention to the hygiene steps to protect yourself from the flu or the common cold already know what to do.
