Sanctuary Washington State is likely to wind up with the first bunch of deaths due to Coronavirus.
It has been announced that 27 residents of a long-term care facility in Kirkland (a nursing home) and 25 of the 180 staff are symptomatic. There is no way to control that in a typical nursing home facility as those facilities are not designed for, nor can they be retrofitted to deal with, infectious disease to any material degree. Given the degree of spread already this situation has clearly been ignored or swept under the rug instead of the facility being instantly closed when the first case was detected. This sort of “deny, deflect and ignore” bullcrap is exactly what I expected out of the virtue-signalling leftists in that part of the country.
