Testing is underway at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and results are expected in a couple of days, the health department says. “The reality is that EMS and the Broome County health system and the hospitals are well aware weeks, if not months, in advance and are putting things in place,” said Morris. He says while it is a foreign virus and it’s best to remain cautious, he says take a moment before panicking and assuming. The health department says these are not confirmed cases. They say when the patients arrived at local medical facilities with respiratory symptoms, staff carried out protocol, maintained proper infection control, contacted the health department, and obtained specimens for laboratory testing. Meanwhile, local EMS crews are ready to take on any possible cases of the coronavirus by keeping up on their training with the CDC. Jim Morris of the Union Volunteer Emergency Squad says he’s been a part of ambulance services since 1999 and has seen different strains of the coronavirus in the early 2000s. He says they train well in advance and have all the equipment on hand to assist patients as well as keep the workers safe from the illness. (WBNG) — According to the Broome County Health Department, two adults are being tested for infection by the coronavirus. County officials say both patients recently returned from China. The Broome County Health Department said it “will provide an update on the results of the coronavirus tests once they are available.” County officials say the patients are no risk to the general public. Both patients have been released to their homes under isolation. “At the end of the day, routine care, routine vaccinations, and following up with your primary care is the best way,” said Morris.
Similar arrangements have been made in Singapore and elsewhere at various churches, temples and mosques.Pope Francis, holed up in the Vatican by Italy’s coronavirus epidemic, held his first virtual general audience on Wednesday.In Hong Kong, some funerals and weddings that have been booked before the outbreak are going ahead.At a recent wedding at Law’s church, guests, donning facemasks, had their temperatures checked and used sanitizer to clean their hands before entering the chapel. Nuns and volunteers were seen cleaning the pews after the ceremony. “However, it was a faithful decision as we believe in God. God has given us the power to make sacrifices that make it a loving decision.”Churchgoer Stephen Wong and daughter Amanda said they missed the community spirit but were thankful for the arrangement.”In this situation I think it is still the best substitute because we cannot physically go to mass,” Wong, a career coach who has been working from home for weeks, said in his flat after attending the online mass.Many churches in Hong Kong have taken their services online due to the rising number of coronavirus cases in the Chinese-ruled city, which has reported 130 cases and three deaths. With an iPad on a small tripod, Father Thomas Law of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in downtown Hong Kong is broadcasting mass to worshippers to their homes via online streaming as a way to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.The church was formerly packed during daily morning mass and on Sundays, but the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong has suspended mass and liturgies since Feb. 15 in line with government health guidelines promoting social distancing.”It was a painful decision,” Law said.
