  1. Around 33 people per day die in Tennessee from cancer. I just dont understand everyone cowering In the corner and giving up their rights over the Chinese virus.

  2. Cancer is not contagious. You can’t “catch” it by being around someone who has it. But this virus IS highly contagious, and people ARE catching it from others. Some get very sick, some don’t. Some die and some don’t. If everyone would just stay away from each other for a couple weeks, it may just all settle down. It is very hard to be isolated, but why take a chance? I was convinced 2 weeks ago that it wasn’t a big deal, but now I know someone personally that has had it, and they were extremely sick. Why risk it? It ain’t worth it.

    1. I agree. As a nurse I have to be diligent when it comes to my health, my families health and the health of my patients and coworkers. 1 person gets in and we all do. Since the quarantine began I have been to the bank once and the dollar store twice and wearing PPE. I go to work and come home all while trying to keep the people around me safe. It serious. It’s not to be taken lightly.

  3. I dont think everyone is cowering in a corner but it spreads way fast than cancer and tripled the count on deaths!So if thats what you want to call it welll be it!!!But myself I think its being more careful.as to help keeping me safe and to keep you safe to!! were protection,and stay home!!! I dont get the giving up rigjts thing! But everone to their own opinion.🙏

  4. So are these people with the virus in the hospital or at home. What happened to the first person who had the virus?

  5. My family can be isolated for 2wks, but if others are not, what could have I done…it’s like everything else in life, if we don’t unite in this and stick together through this and EVERYONE be isolated at the same time we are defeating the purpose of isolation in the beginning…this is going to go on forever if we don’t…

  6. It’s not about giving up rights, it’s about doing the right thing folks! It’s much easier to stay in and close your door for a couple of weeks than to close the casket of someone you know, or someone you love.

  7. The most cases are in the 21 to 30 age group in Tennessee. Doesn’t surprise me a bit! The young couple who live across the street from me had a party this past weekend! Cars and trucks lined up the street. And they have two young children. Idiots like this are what is spreading the virus unnecessarily.

  8. I have a family member that has been fighting Cancer for almost 4yrs..We are staying in and wearing protective covering when we need to go out…..Because you just don’t know who has it and who doesn’t.. I was in the parking lot at Lowe’s over the weekend and all the people that were going in there they differently were NOT 6ft apart…some had mask on but some were just like this is nothing and they were giving the people who were wearing protection funny looks…We NEED come together as a community and be very cautious…This to shall pass just Stay Home and if u have to go out Please wear a protective covering there are some many YouTube videos on this if you can’t sew…GOD BLESS

  9. As a Cancer patient in Remission.. I’m high risk an staying home ,in hopes that with my son( working with the public) , doesn’t carry it back home. I’m continuing to receive vaccines.I already fought a hard battle an trying to avoid another one.Not everyone is high risk but they can spread it making it harder to overcome.

  10. Why is everyone that has this covid 19 keeping quiet?Its nothing to be ashamed of.I just think if people knew who had it would be easer to find out who has been in contack with them or just been around or close by.This may help to stop the spreading of it.So and so could have been by them and forgot to mention that one,then so and so goes around someone else and there u go a whole lot more already affected! Just wondering.🙏🙏Praying for all..

  11. This virus has not gone away yet coming out now is not the way to go. Additional time is needed to lock this virus down, stay in. We need a minimum two more weeks and maybe more to get a real grip on it. Remember it’s not over and is not the end. Remember this is Easter Weekend let’s pray repent and forgive.

  12. I think everyone who has it should announce it its like a flu its not something to be embarrassed of! me personally I would want people to know that way if they had been in physical contact with me they could know to let a doctor know! that’s part of the spread as well. they say they don’t release names cause of HIPAA law well I believe that putting thousands of lives in jeopardy would trump the HIPAA law and a lawyer I’ve discussed this with says I’m right

    1. Its my understanding that once someone is tested positive that they are asked for the names of people that they have been in contact with, then those people are tested.

  13. My daughter is an essential worker in campbell county and I worry about her so much ,because it seems so many are not taking this seriously. The way I see it, even if you dont agree with the precautions that are being asked of you, on the chance you may be wrong, comply with them out of respect for others. I am a nurse and I wish this virus on nobody. Please people.

  14. 330 million americans, staying 6 feet apart is an impossible dream. This nightmare will end only when we have a treatment/vaccine, or when we have all been exposed to it. Sad reality! Until that time, we have to stay vigilant, try protect ourselves/family as much as we can and hope medical science finds the answer soon.

  15. Quoting static like there has been such a large number of people tested gives a false since of what is real
    . 946 People tested in all of Campbell Co. Is an embarrassment. Less than a 1/3 of Tennesseans have been tested. And Tennessee is one of the state’s taking this virus serious. But East Tennessee is the lowest is Testing and loudest in wanting businesses open.
