(Natural News) On March 5, Washington Department of Health Secretary John Wiesman publicly announced that the number of Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) cases in the Evergreen State had nearly doubled compared to the day prior, jumping from 39 confirmed cases to 70.
The bulk of these cases, 51 to be precise, are in King County where Seattle is located, while another 18 cases have been identified in nearby Snohomish County. The remaining single case is said to be in Grant County.
Since that time, the overall number of Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) cases in Washington, according to the official count, has jumped even further to at least 85. This includes 58 total cases in King County, 22 cases in Snohomish County, and one case each in Jefferson, Grant, Clark, Kittitas, and Pierce counties.
The day the number of Washington cases nearly doubled, King County had also made an announcement encouraging its employees to work from home rather than come in as part of self-isolation protocols.
“Workplaces should enact measures that allow people who can work from home to do so,” the county stated. “Taking these measures can help reduce the number of workers who come into contact with COVID-19 and help minimize absenteeism due to illness.”
King County is also encouraging sick people to avoid going out in public period, and especially to avoid visiting hospitals, long-term care facilities, nursing homes, and other similar types of facilities whenever possible.
“If you need to go, limit your time there and keep six feet away from patients,” a statement from the county reads.

Students across Washington are beginning online classes as coronavirus panic spreads
Not long after Washington Governor Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency, so did King County. Vice President Mike Pence, President Donald Trump’s coronavirus “czar,” is expected to travel to Olympia, Washington’s capital, to meet with Gov. Inslee.
Meanwhile, students in the Northshore School District are set to begin online classes as all area school facilities are closed for at least 14 days. Everett Community College and Washington State University, both located in Everett, were also closed over the weekend for special Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) cleaning, and the entirety of their remaining and respective semesters will also take place online rather than in actual classrooms.
All sorts of businesses, organizations, and other institutions across Washington are likewise canceling large events and other planned gatherings, instead encouraging their would-be attendees to engage in “social distancing.”
Many area churches and religious centers are grappling with whether or not to shut down services and meetings, while sporting events are similarly being canceled.
The effects of all this disruption will, of course, have a domino-like effect. You can expect massive economic failures, potentially at a scale never before seen in American history, at least within the lifetimes of anyone currently living.
Over in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) crisis, the situation has devolved into “hell on earth” according to at least one on-the-ground doctor there who’s witnessing firsthand how the communist Chinese regime is bungling containment efforts, perhaps intentionally.
“Never fear,” joked one commenter at The Epoch Times about our own government’s mishandling of this crisis. “Your government has it all under control and will tell you whatever information they think you need to know when they think you need to know it.”
“They only have your best interests at heart and obviously, they know best,” this same commenter added in jest.
