This California Neighborhood Is Now On Police-Enforced Quarantine…The New Normal?

(Right Country) – As medical experts agree that it will be nearly impossible to contain the coronavirus within our borders, communities are beginning to face the chilling reality that it may soon be a little too close for comfort.

On Thursday, Sacramento, California police ordered all residents in a neighborhood where there has been a coronavirus death to remain indoors.

The local health department has issued a statement to explain the police presence in the area.

It is certainly no small matter to imagine being confined to one’s home by order of police, no matter how much of a threat the virus may pose.

WIBW reported:

Sacramento County Sheriff deputies and Rocklin Police, some wearing protective gloves, converged on a residential street Thursday as a sheriff’s helicopter circled overhead, ordering people to get inside.

It was later learned that the first California coronavirus patient to die from the illness lived on this block.

The Placer County Health Department issued a brief statement shortly after the police presence, stating: “Law enforcement partners are currently responding to enforce a health officer’s order. We cannot share any additional information to protect patient confidentiality.”

The orders were given under sections of California Health and Safety Code that allows Placer Health to “enforce regulations requiring strict isolation, or quarantine if the action is necessary for the protection of the public health.”

The reality is, according to medical experts, that a response like this could be a bit of an overreach.

Recently, emergency room physician and Harvard Medical School instruction is warning the American public that there is no need to panic in the face of the outbreak.

Dr. Jeremy Faust says that we all need to calm down, as the novel virus is far less deadly than feared by many and is unlikely to har non-geriatric individuals with no additional health complications.

Dr. Faust says that the death for the coronavirus is smaller than 1%, which is significantly lower than the 3.4% rate we’re being told by the World Health Organization.

In a column for Slate, titled “COVID-19 Isn’t As Deadly As We Think,” Dr. Faust writes:

Allow me to be the bearer of good news. The true case fatality rate of this virus is likely to be far lower than current reports suggest.

Even some lower estimates, such as the 1 percent death rate recently mentioned by the directors of the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, likely substantially overstate the case.

This all suggests that COVID-19 is a relatively benign disease for most young people, and a potentially devastating one for the old and chronically ill, albeit not nearly as risky as reported.”

  1. To stop virus, you must stop travel. What is so bad as staying home for two weeks? So long as food is delivered, it is a good idea.

  2. Really?! The flu is killing people and their worried about one death? This is ridiculous and scare tactics. Hope they have toilet paper lol

    • Yep, my research showed that there where 400,000 deaths from the flu, world wide just a few years ago. I can’t remember if it was over a 5 – 10 yr span, but still, people die from the flu often, and from what i understand, this virus mimics the flu. Can we say “fear mongering?”

  3. Wonder if this is more hysteria caused by Democratic leadership. “The sky is falling !”
    Then again, two weeks off…Wal Mart delivers…but I don’t live there.

  4. Definitely overreach scare tactic by Demorat leadership pushing hysteria – just another attempt to gain power! Shame on them! Remember Kavanough, 3 Years of Russia Hoax, Impeachment, now this!

    • This gave them the ability to pork belly fund their corruption. How much of that money is siphoned off to their bank accounts.

  5. Think about it. It’s a hoax. This whole thing is a hoax. Corona viruses have been around for years. Nearly everyone in the US at some point has experienced some form of it. The majority of of the time controlled rather easily. In third world countries I can see a cause for concern. Here in the US we have the means to find Treatment and cures. As for a police quarantine, they released literally almost no information, no body was produce, and even if there was a body there is no evidence produced this person passed from this virus. Think about The police monitoring? If the corona virus was this bad the police not be monitoring the situation but rather a team with with the necessary education and experience wearing full in protective suits to handle such a situation would be monitoring. Most officers do not have a degree in police science much less a degree.

    This is a martial law test that failed miserably. The whole thing is backfiring. There is more to this story of Obama preventing testing kits into the US causing quarantine delays, two democratic senators and Iran. Strains of these types of diseases are held in institutes. There are strange similarities to the minerva initiative. I could go on but I would be here for hours.

    • although I tend to agree hoax wise the virus is still an issue that should be handled carefully, if you remember the swine flu obama waites till over a 1000 were dead before acting , trump got right with it , the left however has got the shit pot so stirred up it is not funny the media being one of the biggest offenders followed by the social media and then the scammers I work the tourism industry in alaska and for years we dealt with norwalk symptoms which is similliar to norwalk virus and in the end when our lodge got these people from the cruise ships good hygine practice dropped the numbers greatly and that is the same info we are getting here from our health providers I have a feeling the virus will disappear with the november elections

      • I don’t think COVID-19 is a hoax. It does exist. However, all the screaming and hysterics are completely unnecessary. Observing personal hygiene and covering your sneezes and coughs will help prevent the spread of the disease. If you think you have contracted the virus, get yourself tested. If the test returns a positive, stay away from others to prevent the spread and let the other people that you have been in contact with know of your positive test. Simple. Stay calm. Vote out the screaming finger-pointers.

  6. This is insanity! I refuse to change my lifestyle, except for making sure that personal hygiene is observed and the recommendations are followed. People are hoarding food and toilet paper and god only what else, in case they have to stay home for a couple of weeks. They should always have extras, in case of any kind of natural disaster.
    My only question is, how many of the people that died actually had a flu shot?

  7. Better safe than sorry. Even if it turns out to be an overreach, better than catastrophe. Nip it in the bud, stay home a while.

  8. PayPal! One million people worldwide were to die from this virus then your odds of dying from the virus are one in 6,000. Way more than one million will die from widespread panic and loss of jobs.

  9. Unless the people in the neighborhood have had contact with that family, why on earth should they be quarantined?

  10. Since this originated in China, ground zero, has anyone thought about them experimenting with a bio weapon and it got out of hand. These virus just do not create themselves. Iraq used things like this on there own people. Not much different
    form chemical or bio weapons. I am talking in the sense that they are designed to kill.

  11. My main thought throughout this spreading coronavirus is the underlying threat to liberties because there are people who deem themselves above the law of maintaining a self-isolation. In New York, we have as of 3/9/2020, 105 cases of people diagnosed, from mere association with one person who had underlying lung health condition prior to contracting this virus. Because of the careless self-care, this person spread the disease because they failed to be self-cautious, whenever they felt ill. People with this attitude will cause mandated controlled quarantine like described in this article.
    Yes this is definitely a man-made virus created for what purpose I can’t figure out yet
