Hogan Pushes Back on President’s Potential Restart Dates

April 15th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

While President Donald Trump is continuing to push for a “re-opening” of America- many governors across the country have their doubts. Trump, who said Monday he has absolute authority to determine when businesses can re-open and people return to work, is coming under fire for those remarks. The president has identified a number of potential start-up days in the past month- now suggesting May 1st. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, chair of the National Governors Association, says the COVID-19 pandemic is not something to which  you can simply assign an arbitrary end date…

    An assumption had been made that rural locations were less likely to see large scale outbreaks of infection.

    South Dakota refused to institute any precautionary measures and the article below reports on how that worked out. More importantly, what happened in South Dakota is going to have a direct effect on us.

    Reopening is also be difficult as we really don’t know how soon or how fast we can implement this without facing an even more destructive second wave of infection.

    Stay healthy friends.

    This is a DAMN LIE- Health Depts. ALL OVER America name facilities, businesses, etc. every damn day! Our local Health Dept is run by LYING, INCOMPETENT, MORONS. ” the local health department says the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act prevents them from answering questions about where COVID-19 cases have been confirmed.” And as the writer at Times points out, they have NO PROBLEM naming where there are bedbugs or restaurants that get closed??

      > Bed bugs infestations and restaurant closures are not people. HIPAA protects the medical information of patients.

      I pretty sure this would extend to the nursing home a patient is staying in. This infromation makes it trivial to figure out who the patient might be. If the age and facility of an infected person was released, especially for a small nursing home, that patient’s private information could easily be compromised.

      With that said, my mother is in a nursing home so I have a good deal of sensitivity towards what you’re saying Mark.

        > Your case (and mine) is why it’s irresponsible NOT to name the facility. Now you have every family with a member in a home or working in one stressed out because that don’t know where the virus has broken out and it puts EVERYONE at a disadvantage to try and CONTAIN the outbreak! Every medical expert disagrees with your false b.s. analogy. And that DOES NOT violate any patients privacy, and you’re a moron if you think it does!

          You seem very angry Mark. There are meds for that.

            > Actually I’m very happy, not sure why you’d think otherwise, but then again ‘thinking’ isn’t your strong point, is it?? You see, I just have a low tolerance for idiots like you is all. Give it a rest friend.

    As president he probably should familiarize himself with the 10th amendment.

      If he could, he’d fire the people who wrote the Constitution.

    Naming a nursing home where Covid-19 exists does not identify any individual person as having the virus or any other medical issue for that matter.

    WHY? WHY? Would you NOT want others to know that you had tested positive/have the Covid-19 ??? If I had tested positive or have the Covid-19 I would want EVERYONE to KNOW. My family,friends,neighbors,anyone I may have been in contact with. How can WE DEFEAT the ENEMY (Covid-19) if we don’t know where it exists?? How could someone live with themselves,knowing they have the C-19 and and could spread to unsuspecting others. Testing should be mandated for everyone, and the positive results published, so that anyone who may have been in contact with those positive results published. Not to bring harm or contempt upon those who are infected, but to help them and ourselves to defeat this enemy and save lives. The leadership is more concerned with wealth and prosperity than the preservation of life. We are in dire need of TRUE LEADERSHIP for All.
