Nobody: Absolutely Nobody: Host:Is the hospital a private hospital or public hospital?

This is sending a false sense of security. I'm glad she's not symptomatic but had they not caught it she would have spread it to someone who may not have been so lucky.

Re-infection is a thing with coronavirus. First round can be harmless with no or little symptom for 10-12. Then you get re-infected and go critical. Scary stuff. Watch MedCram - he's a pulmonary specialist and has some good videos on the coronavirus. Especially, watch the one named 'How Coronavirus kills.' It mentions how symptoms can be alleviated (prone positioning is a simple and effective survival enhancer).

Viruses are usually strongest with the first infected and weaken as they are passed along. Although this woman is highly suspect, if my opinion means anything.

Haha randomly chosen.... She ain't sick. Someone sick with upper respiratory or flu like symptoms isnt going to feel great like her. Smh lies. Go check yalls disinfectants. Every season they list on the labels what virals & bacterias will be active. Guess what lysol lists as top viral??? Human Coronavirus, Influenza A. Not all of us are ignorant. Some of us pay attention to everything and we SEE EVERYTHING THAT THE CDC IS LYING ABOUT

So how many people didn’t check that they were taking pain killers because they were thinking along the lines of narcotics.... so there could be so many more who are positive without knowing or having any symptoms. Scary times.

I’m glad that she’s doing well, but that’s a first world perspective from an adult with a healthy immune system. I’d be interested to hear from someone with health problems in a third world country that has to deal with it, considering that’s who it’s really heavily effecting.

Get Well Soon Rebecca, 💞🇺🇸🌹🙏 The world health org. Has strict guidelines to clear you. Two negative test, like you said. Media might need to really educate the public on that all-clear guidelines, so paranoid people won't be

Taiwan scientists claim , the virus may show no symptoms for 3-40 days. Some of these people look fine , and they are dead in 2 weeks. The real crisis , will be if 300k people need to go to the hospital on the same day, us medical system will be overwhelmed. Also the majority of our prescription drugs come from china. As of now there is almost no drugs coming out of china, or any other medical supplies.

Sounds Scripted to me Why isn't she wearing a mask or wearing protective clothing ? She's putting nurses and doctors at risk is she not ? She's contaminating the room is she not ? Seems like legit questions I mean seems to me even being under quarantine they would take those precautions Right ? How much is she being paid ? $💰$

When they return after passing quarantine they need to do an additional 14 day quarantine here before being released. And i dont want to hear any whining about they have a life to get back to. This is too important to other people lives to just let them run willie nillie among the rest of us.

In China there are videos of people suddenly collapsing, vans being loaded with corpses, funeral homes running 24/7 with four to 5 times the bodies they would normally have. People are being barricaded into their own houses from the outside with their doors welded shut. Everyone aboard the cruise ship is likely infected with the central air conditioning and plumbing. People are asymptomatic for up to 24 days but still infectious. Nobody in the comment section is buying anything from this interview. Another interesting thing to look up is Wuhan virology located 10 miles from ground zero.

Where is Rebecca today February 16th? ABC & CBS are just not good at "Follow-up" or "Current" News; Calling it "Breaking?" Breaking my heart we can't see how this girl on February 11th, has progressed to 5 days later ? NOT NEW-NEWS! Going to Peak's Prosperity and Agenda Free TV for CURRENT -UPDATED-NEWS !

2000mg of fish oil daily stopped my colds/flu for more than 20 years. Vit A/Vit C/Vit D3/Zn/Mg/herbs like garlic/oil of oregano etc./onions/sauna/ozone/probiotic and more may help infections.

Pain killers lower the immune system. NO gluten may prevent pain. Low sunlight may cause gluten issues.

Just because someone is asymptotic, it doesn’t mean they are a “super-spreader”. Many people are asymptotic for many pathogens-that is perfectly normal. She, however, did have mild symptoms, a cough, which is also normal. She is not a “carrier”. The press and the public need to be very careful about throwing around these epidemiology terms without understanding their actual meaning....which seems to be the case in most of the comments...I finally gave up because I couldn’t take the stupidity any longer.

Great,I have to go to the Doctor on Friday!!!! Damn!!!!! The waiting room will be filled with people coughing etc...Most likely common cold/flu as one is going around lol,yeah.laugh at me!!! Oh well,if it's my time whatever!! Deal with it!

Scripted or not. As long as you re good, safe, healthy at home, does it matter? Hopefully all in quarantine get better soon.
