Infections could come from anywhere.

America, Britain, France, Germany, then there's 2 and 3000 cruise ship passengers coming out and potentially spreading it like a plague.

The fact that people can be infectious without having ANY symptoms, or simply have a mild reaction that they might think is a regular cold or a mild flue is scary. Keeping ones distance regardless is the way to go.

For us not to get a touch will be a miracle, and if we do then what already has a young average age is going to be a much younger average age island.

The old folks will fall like nine pins. Unless they close the schools at the first whiff of an outbreak we goose cooked. Because the kids will bring it to the parents and Grandparents.

Three cases in Iowa yesterday.  All just came back from a trip to Egypt.  They are 15 miles from my home.  It was just a matter of time.
