30 students in Palm Beach County have been exposed to Coronavirus


The Coronavirus is much worse than you think. The numbers coming out of China are grossly under reported in a cover-up by the notoriously secretive Chinese government. 30 Students in Palm Beach County have been told to stay home because they may have been exposed to coronavirus at a weekend conference.

The group had attended a Model United Nations event at Yale University in Connecticut that was cut short when the university notified participants that a student from China with a cough and fever had been taken to a hospital for possible Coronavirus treatment.

Stop flights to/from China.

Coronavirus scare: 30 students, 3 teachers at Benjamin School await word on exposure

Palm Beach Post, Posted Jan 28, 2020:

They were competing in a Model U.N. event at Yale where a Chinese high school student became ill but has not tested positive.

Some 30 high schoolers and three teachers from The Benjamin School who headed to Yale last week to attend a four-day conference are now at home and cannot return to campus until they learn whether they were exposed to the coronavirus by an ill student from China.

All signs, and preliminary lab results, point to the more likely scenario that the student in question was felled only by the flu, but in an abundance of caution Yale reported that the student is being tested for the virus that has killed more than 100 and has world health officials on alert.

The results are due mid-week. The school is awaiting the all-clear before the students and teachers are allowed to return, said school spokesman Juan Carlos Fanjul.

Yale’s Model United Nations, an event that draws hundreds of students from around the world, began Thursday. But by Saturday, Yale alerted attendees that a student who had traveled with a small group from China had developed a cough and fever. The student was taken to the local hospital where the student tested positive for the flu, Yale officials said in a written statement.

Yale contacted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and under the CDC’s direction requested further testing and pulled the plug on Sunday morning’s closing activities.

No Palm Beach County public school students attended the Yale Model United Nations, spokeswoman Claudia Shea reports.

On a visit to Omni Middle School in suburban Boca Raton Monday, Gov. Ron DeSantis reported that though some Floridians have been screened for possible exposure, none had tested positive for the illness.

So far, the CDC has confirmed only five cases of coronavirus in the United States. It is also following 110 potential cases, or “persons under investigation” in 26 states and that “this is a cumulative number and will only increase,” said to Dr. Nancy Messonier in a press briefing Monday.

Coronavirus, known in more scientific lingo as 2019-nCoV, is a respiratory illness first identified in Wuhan, China and now confirmed in 15 other countries. More than a thousand cases are confirmed in China, the CDC reports. The first infection in the U.S. was confirmed last week.
