Louisiana has joined other states in requiring its citizens to remain at home and effectively closing all but essential businesses. The order is effective at 5:00 pm Monday March 23 and lasts through April 12.

Awesome! What is taking the other states so long to follow CA 's lead? It's an important 2 weeks.

It has to do with the low number of tests done. Can't recall which state, but that Gov was saying they don't have a widespread problem. How would they actually know? My state of over 6 mil has done about 500 tests, 126 positives, 5 deaths. Now we're having more slowing down of testing, with most tests going to where the hot spots are. We would only know where the hotspots are with testing. Boggles my brain.

I've been staying put for weeks as I've been certain it's floating around out there but nobody knows when we will actually know, if ever. I am not confident that a low number of positives is any reason to feel like my neighbors aren't unknowingly infected.

Louisiana is one of the states I was watching, as they started out slow and seem to be turning into a hotspot.

Sound liked all fifty (50) state Governors, the Mayor of Washington,DC, and all US territorial Governors must issues this order of "Stay At Homes Order." IMO

Agree! Several places in the world are delaying or suppressing results from tests, or blaming them on other causes, as politicians don't want fear to be widespread.

I think there will be a lot more fear when number of deaths in a state surpasses number of positive tests. Anyone that isn't scared yet, hasn't been paying attention. That cat is out of the bag. Those that hadn't understood had, I thought, received the idea that THIS IS A BIG DEAL when NBA ended season, and other sports followed. That was a long time ago now.

Anyone that missed Wuhan and is not seeing Italy, they are willfully ignorant.

It was Texas. Dallas county had to issue their own SAH order (still has work and essential errands) as the Governor would not put in place the order for the whole state as he stated It was not yet needed in Texas. There has not been adequate testing anywhere so how could he even make that statement. He must have his head in the sand.

We have visited Italy many times over the years . It’s hurt so much to read about their raising daily death tolls. This is a very beautiful country with so much history, so many museums and so many ancient architecture buildings .

The one bright spot about the coronavirus, Italy canals, rivers and waterways are cleaner and their marine life can be spotted in their waterways for the first time in decades.. Also, their air is cleaner and their pollution have been cut in half.

Italy, is liked an untouched time or a walk back into history for an artist or a photographer, or visitor’s waiting to capture that special moment on canvas or film by DaVince or Michelangelo, Picasso to be shared with the whole world.

Italy population is much older than our US population and the coronavirus is hitting them much harder because this a respiratory disease. Sometimes older folks just don't have that stamina to bound back as fast. IMHO.

Please! Be safe, protect your family members, enjoy life and Love one Another.

Politicians waiting too long are killing people. Testing took too long, people already had symptoms and the virus and recovered and there are not enough test kits so the numbers are off. The real focus needs to be on hosputal beds and ventilators. Millions of each are needed. 20% of those who catch the virus need to be hospitalized, 5% needing a ventilator to breathe or they die. China built huge hospitals in a few days to isolate tbe sickest. All industry needs to be in 'war time' production mode for ventilators.

You got it; now share this message with those in Washington, DC. Because they do not understand what is happening to the American populations.

I like a quote from a medical writer in today's New York Times: “If it were possible to wave a magic wand and make all Americans freeze in place for 14 days while sitting six feet apart, epidemiologists say, the whole epidemic would sputter to a halt.”

After reading several articles looking at why many areas are still not preparing, it's truly a mentality issue. I know of ppl who believe since they don't live in the cities, they will not be affected. Many health officials are trying to talk sense. Closing of the churches is considered sacireligious. However it's what needs to happen.
I wonder now how the Baton Rouge pastor, who refused to closed his doors, is dealing w/ the crisis considering LA is now exploding.

Yes! Small towns apparently have people that never leave, and of course no one ever comes through ... I'm in Indiana, few big cities, many many small towns. It is in most of our counties, even with under 1000 tests so far.

Mayor of Chicago said the church issue is a separation of church and state issue - they cannot order them closed. Can simply order gathering max size but no enforcement.

People will do what people will do. I would expect a deep chill has settled over that congregation with 2 deaths. You can't pray this away.

Yes. WHO is recommending 5 week lock down. Unwillingness to just stay home is going to drag this horror out for much longer.

That Baton Rouge pastor is an irresponsible egotistical person looking for publicity and unfortunately he received it so I'm sure he's happy. I wish there had been no publicity and the authorities had just shown up on Sunday and busted his chops. Of course, that would have led to an enormous amount of negative publicity to law enforcement.

Perhaps that pastor should re-read the Bible and realize the Bible states Christians are to obey the law of government!

This article is about a small town in Kentucky which has been hit hard by the coronavirus. Small towns may think they’re safe, but they aren’t Immune.

I feel for any small town in the USA if the Coronavirus strikes. Because small towns communities are so closely knitted together and they loved to help one another in times of nature disasters. This helping spirt will causes the Coronavirus to spread. Small towns lack hospitals, the medical staff, masks, equipments and ICU to handle a Coronavirus outbreak. IMO.

I live in a small rural town and I am worried about the distribution of needed medical supplies to our small local hospital. I do worry about them being not receiving much support.
