Today's news blast from the the Health Department and an update on the local crisis . . .

First confirmed death from COVID-19 in Kansas City

Kansas City, Missouri Director of Health Dr. Rex Archer is announcing the first death from COVID-19 in the city.

The woman, who was in her 70s, was admitted to the hospital on March 25 and died on April 2. Because she was already in critical condition, the health department was unable to get details about how the disease progressed, her underlying health conditions or her activities prior to her symptoms.

Another member of her household also tested positive for COVID-19. Health department specialists are gathering information from those around her to determine if others need to be isolated and tested.

“We can’t imagine the grief her family and friends are going through right now,” said Archer. “We knew this day was coming and we will have more hard days to come. We need to take care of one another and take seriously the stay-at-home order.”

As of April 2, Kansas City has recorded 143 positive COVID-19 cases, including 74 women, 65 men, three teenagers and one child.

On March 21, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas issued a ‘Stay at Home’ Order requiring Kansas Citians to stay home except for essential activities. The order is effective from March 24 to April 24. He was joined by the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas, Jackson County, Missouri, and Johnson County, Kansas. Clay County and Platte County issued similar orders . . .

Why are women getting it more than men, especially when that doesn't reflect what's happening globally?

Women are far more likely to be tested. Pretty much the same thing for STDs as well.

Jesus with all the pearl clutching and wet diapers I thought we already had a few thousand local deaths already.

Some people are getting this virus with little symptoms and some are getting it with bad symptoms and death. No one knows what is going on but it is dark. Also weird things are going on in KS as far as gas spewing out of the ground according to some scientists. I don't know what it means but I guess we will find out, maybe, I think.

Feb. 25: “CDC & my administration are doing a GREAT job of handling Coronavirus.”

Feb. 27: “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

March 2: “You take a solid flu vaccine, you don’t think that could have an impact, or much of an impact, on corona?”

March 6: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it. Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”

8:19 oh looky there everybody, the paid troll is back with his prepared copy and paste comments again. Sad.

Byron Funkhouser said...

9:03, maybe he's not a "paid troll", maybe he's a Patriot.

Der Fuhrer threatened broadcasters for their unfavorable coverage of his incompetence, when the FCC should really go after Fox Entertainment for the dangerous misinformation they are disseminating.

People are dying because Fox & Trump are lying.

Awww looky there, one paid troll defending another paid troll, isn’t that cute!

Dear god bLIEron, you really are retarded, China lied and people all over the WORLD ARE DYING, damn you really are stupid aren't you.

If Fox News is so bad then why are they now and have been the number one most watched and trusted network for years now? Cnn is lying to you as well as msdnc, they’re begging for viewership and are desperate to add numbers anyway they can, they have suckered dumb dumbs like you for years now, you should be embarrassed and ashamed that you’ve been suckered so easily. Rachel madcows own lawyers had to admit you can’t believe anything she says or anything the network says.

Even rachael maddow says dont believe a word she says.

The media apparently thinks it's part of the resistance and therefore must bend n twist every story to somehow blame trump...if you are a thinking person it is so obvious and tiring.
