D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a state of emergency and a public health emergency on Wednesday as the number of people in the district who tested positive for COVID-19 rose to 10.
Were not in a vacuum," Bowser said in a news conference. "Our country is experiencing this, and our world is experiencing this."
The declaration allows the district to request federal funds to address the public health crisis further and gives the mayor the ability to order quarantines 'without the approval of a court'.
Nearly 125,000 people have tested positive for the virus around the world, killing at least 4,592 people. In the United States, more than 1,100 people have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, and 32 patients have died. The World Health Organization declared coronavirus a global pandemic on Wednesday.

Honestly, one might think this is just part of the
coup set up by the liberal left!
Never let a crisis go to waste, and if you don’t
have one...create one.
There may be a silver lining in this epidemic. It will clear out the old crooks infesting Congress if it gets really bad.
Lawmakers and the establishment were happy as hell to be importing illegal aliens and immigrants and not screening them for disease for 40 years so its on them.
I think that the age of anabiotics made them forget the importance of being discerning who you invited into your home.
80,000 Americans died of the flu during the winter of 2017-2018.
Why were there no hysterics then?
Shouldn’t the global pandemic groupies have alerted us?
Good - move the capital to Kansas.
And then fill it up with water.
And then have a coke.
The rat officials are using State of Emergency’s to keep adding fuel to the fire. CA started this BS of course. The market was beginning to recover so CA responded by declaring it. These bastards don’t care if millions get hurt if there is a chance Trump gets blamed.
close the metro
Evacuate DC and declare it a biozone until at least Jan 20, 2021.
Some of those old crooks are our old crooks.
Well I was thinking more of the Impact on the Capital offices etc.
Oh I believe a lot will be discovered which wouldn’t otherwise because of this virus. ......as well the American people need to prepared for such things, not just hear it but act on their own behalf.
Even now people have had plenty warning to be prepared for this to spread. As with the flu if you’re in that danger zone you need to have things ready.
Well I did that a couple weeks ago and am set here now. Retired I can hang out here and on my wonderful deck once the weather gets nice again.
I even spoke with Pharmacist on what I should have here if I get this virus, he was very helpful and attentive. Srongly advised a cough medicine...’Delsym’...next best thing to a narcotic cough medication without the narcotics. Body ache medication and keeping fever in check..and drink lots of fluids and juices....said check your temperature twice a day if you feel like you’re coming down with anything.
So I’m set... here.
Im rooting for corona virus in this case.
Wow, 10 people, that’s frightening. What if it gets to 20, will they close down the entire city, arrest anyone who steps outside? This keeps getting more and more ridiculous by the hour.
DC has always been a “state of emergency” since the corrupt crackhead Marion Barry became mayor in the late 70’s. That’s is close as they will ever get to being a “state”.
Bowser: Wasn’t she a disk jockey in NY? The name is familiar.
And even during this mild Flu season, 100 Americans die every day of it (on average)...yet it is being tonally ignored even though in actual numbers, it is so far much deadlier than the Great Dem Hope Virus”.
