1. We will see more.

Screening testing is incredibly poorly available right now. That's why Schumer and others are so adamant about the lack of funding and serious administrative response to date.

8. He claimed it would just go away

...once it gets warmer. Hey, he's a knowledgeable guy. /sarcasm

Are we sure it isn't Obama, though? Sure, he didn't succeed in spreading Ebola across America, but that doesn't mean he gave up trying!! /also sarcasm

11. The flu usually does, but I think it may go away because people are not stuck together.

The Arkansas flu is starting to die out right now, the peak was 2 weeks ago according to the data.

3. Is everyone who feels like they are coming down with cold or flu

running to get tested? Are they recommending that?

4. No. Further, if you think it might be the coronavirus: CALL AHEAD TO THE HOSPITAL or DRs OFFICE. nt

7. Does anyone know in which city or community in Northern CA this case has occurred?

On edit: I just saw that the CDC is choosing not to release the location.

10. No--that case has been on the map for over a week, so I'm assuming it's not that one.

I saw a news story last week that said that someone in Napa County might have the virus--perhaps that has been confirmed?

12. It says Solano County and that is where Travis Air Force base is, where they are housing

Just my guess. The local article reported that the hospital asked for testing bu the CDC refused to do it until something like 3 days later.
