Coronavirus in Michigan: First 2 cases confirmed in Wayne, Oakland counties

In announcing Michigan's first two cases of novel coronavirus late Tuesday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also declared a state of emergency, saying she will harness all of the government's resources to slow the spread of the virus.

"We're Michiganders. We're tough," Whitmer said. "We know how to take care of each other. We will get through this, but for now, please make sure your family and friends are taking every preventative measure available to keep yourselves safe. Talk to your friends, and your family and your co-workers and encourage them to make smart choices. We in state government will continue our work to take every necessary precaution to keep Michiganders safe."

The two people who have the virus — a man and a woman — are both middle age and both are hospitalized, said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy director for health at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

The woman is from Oakland County and traveled internationally. The man is a Wayne County resident with a history of domestic travel.

Both tests were processed in the state laboratories in Lansing.

In South Korea, officials have been able to test hundreds of people every day for coronavirus using fast food-style drive-thrus. Now, the technique is coming to Washington, which has the second-highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S.

The University of Washington Medical Center in North Seattle can currently test 40 to 50 people per day using the method, CBS affiliate KIRO reports. The testing site is only available to employees and students, but UW Medical plans to expand the program to first responders, employees at long-term care facilities and UW patients showing symptoms later this week.

"We need widespread testing right now," Dr. Seth Cohen, Medical Director for Infection Prevention at UW Medicine, told KIRO. "There's urgency around it."

There are three tents currently set up in one of the parking garages on the campus. One holds cleaning supplies, gloves and gowns and the other two are used for scheduling, maintaining health information and storing test kits.

Trump plans to boycott St Patrick's Day Speakers' lunch in Washington

Source: Irish Times

US president Donald Trump is planning to boycott the annual St Patrick’s Day Speakers’ lunch in Washington next week the Irish Times has learned, amid ongoing tensions between the president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The president traditionally attends the lunch on Capitol Hill which is hosted by the House Speaker – one of the rare times in the year that the president visits congress.

But it is understood that Mr Trump and vice president Mike Pence have indicated they will not attend next Thursday, though the Oval Office meeting between the Taoiseach and the president will proceed as planned at the White House.

A decision not to attend the Speaker’s lunch would mark a break with tradition. The lunch is traditionally an opportunity for politicians from both political parties to put aside their political differences and celebrate Irish-American heritage. But the relationship between Mr Trump and Ms Pelosi is at a low point.

I’ve obtained nearly 1,300 pages of documents prepared by attorneys working for the Trump Org as part of a legal dispute that’s never been made public - until now. It could have major repercussions for @realDonaldTrump’s biz interests in Europe. Excl story coming this evening
