How ironic. Religious gatherings, at which prayer against corona virus infection was most likely on the agenda, became the cause of infection.

There are two infected patients that checked in at the hospital on Yokosuka Naval base earlier this week. They are keeping it hush hush, but they notified all the staff and personnel to be cautious while at work.

Having sex with an infected person, it can be spread, even having food in restaurants, even a sushi roll can be contaminated, just any contact, with virus, they say smokers and drinkers, have high rate of death

"We are very well equipped to fight this thing off. I am certain that, that soldier that has tested positive, he's on his way up to Camp Humphreys today, is going to get better medical care than anyone else in Korea who has the coronavirus."

That's a pretty sad statement ...

He was confined to his off-base home because he was showing symptoms. Says right in the article once he tested positive he was sent to the hospital on Camp Humphreys. I think it's a bit premature to deploy a hospital ship for one case.

Will you get physically ill if you don't mention Trump at least once in every discussion? I swear some of you are like sharks that can't stop swimming or they'll die.
