COVID-19 is now in Las Vegas

I posted it here.

And the Johns Hopkins CSSE map has it.

To tell you the truth, since this is one of the biggest vacation spots for people from all over the world, I'm surprised it took so long.

2. That would be funny if it weren't for the circumstances.

More like gallows humor now.

4. LOL - Hubby said the same thing

It was just a matter of time. We have just one so far, but The Strip and casinos are crowded, everyone touching screens and buttons as they gamble.

As mom-in-law says, "it is what it is."

Edited to add: I was not put out or insulted at all by anyone's reaction. It was pretty much inevitable since we get visitors from around the world. Now we're going to see how things are in places like Seattle that have it waaay worse so far.

7. 50 year old male

was admitted to the VA hospital sometime early today.

And the Media here is poo pooing this as a nonevent. Even the Clark County Health District CEO does a blow off interview with the media this afternoon.

BTW,the Adelsen owned News Paper carried a short blurb about the Virus in Washington State. The Boys on the Stripe must be scared shitless. Eleven new owners in the last two months all on leveraged debt.

9. What happens in Vegas...

Is gonna spread like wildfire.

I hope he recovers completely.

Meanwhile, SXSW is about to take place in my backyard. That's going to escalate things locally.

16. The MGM?

Proof COVID-19 is a Democratic hoax! If it were real it'd be at the Aria with all the real aspiring pandemics!

12. It's probably been there for a while. It just took them this long to identify it.

Here we only had one case. Then we had a second case. Within a week they were estimating we had hundreds of "cryptic" cases, and that the outbreak actually started 6 weeks before they discovered it.

20. I think you're right

I've been suspecting that I have had it for the past 2 ~ 3 weeks.

I've been achy & sore, which I've blamed on an old office chair and bad posture. It got worse as the day went on. By 8pm, all I can do is fall into bed.

I've had "traveling pain," which I put down as my arthritis flaring up. Left shoulder for a couple days, then right shoulder, then left knee, now it's in my left heel. This has happened before so I just got through it.

I've had severe stinging in my sinuses resulting in lots of sneezing - well, there's been a pollen alert.

I had a slightly dry and uncomfortable throat last week and a slight cough. I won't call it a sore throat because it didn't really hurt. I blamed a cold front that was coming through.

So... whaddya think? Was it COVID-19? Or just a cold in a 60 year old body?

At a job interview. I forgot to ask where he's staying. We don't gamble, so he'll avoid the casinos, but still...

18. Vegas is exporting COVID-19




Toronto has another case of #COVID19 in a traveler who acquired the infection in.....Las Vegas.

You heard that right - Las Vegas.

The USA is exporting cases and the travel history is rapidly becoming irrelevant. https://bit.ly/2uXYdFj

19. Its probably in New Orleans as well

I know two people who have been sent home from the doctor w/o testing but are young, have pneumonia w/o flu, and work in the French Quarter.

Oh year -- Mardi Gras was last week.
