Coronavirus updates: With cases climbing above 328,000, WHO expert says lockdowns aren't enough

  • Big Brother is watching and waiting for you.
    COVID-19 [5G FLU] has killed more than 14,300 people around the world.
  • Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has tested positive for COVID-19 [payback for his dad publicly saying coronavirus is a "hoax"].
  • Louisiana and Ohio instituted "stay at home" orders.
  • VP Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen tested negative for the coronavirus.
  • Instead of a nationwide lockdown, Germany has banned gatherings of more than two people.
As governments in the U.S. and around the world impose more restrictions to [exercise dictatorial powers while saying it is only to] stop the spread of COVID-19, an emergency health expert says locking down societies alone isn't enough.

Freeze! What are you doing outside?
“What we really need to focus on is [Martial Law then] finding those who are sick, those who have the virus, and isolate them, find their contacts [by looking at personal cell phone data] and isolate them,” said Executive Director Mike Ryan of the World Health Organization's Health Emergencies Program.

“If we don’t put in place the strong public health measures now, when those movement restrictions and lockdowns are lifted, the danger is the disease will jump back up,” Ryan opined in an interview Sunday on the BBC’s “Andrew Marr Show.”

The number of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus topped 329,000 on Sunday, according to Johns Hopkins. More than 14,375 deaths have been recorded. The U.S. has at least 32,081 cases and 400 deaths.
