Oddly, I had already opened up my computer and was just about to start typing the post of the day when I heard the news. The first confirmed case of coronavirus in Manhattan was announced this afternoon.
The woman has been quarantined in her apartment, and testing of people who show symptoms is continuing. Nobody seems to exactly what this means.
Perhaps it would be best not to say too much more on this subject until there is good news to report. Let us all hope for better news in the days ahead.
