Title: Irvine should have disclosed this a lot earlier
Post by: irvinehomeshopper on January 26, 2020, 05:09:53 PM
When I learned of the Coronavirus case in OC, the media did not indicate which city. I searched everywhere but could not locate where the infected individual resides. OC is a vast place from San Clemente to Brea and from HB to Yorba Linda.

The media not disclosing the city and City of Irvine censoring this potential disaster is no different from the Government in China, where saving face is more important than the safety and welfare of people.

The hospital where she was treated that borders Santa Ana and Tustin should issue a statement of precaution.

This text came from a legitimate source a few days ago a concerned friend of mine living in SGV active in the Chinese Community. Fortunately, the relative of the infected mom leaked it to the Chinese media, and this excerpt was published. Irvine Valley College should cancel classes and especially issuing safety warnings regarding exposure. The city of Irvine and Woodbridge must do the same.

🚨 OC 的病患是Irvine Valley Community College (IVC) 學生的母親,趕在武漢封城之前飛過來的,那位媽媽現在確診了,去過海底撈,去過大華,南海岸,危險就在身邊,大家快轉發。

爾灣的華人轉發的消息:孩子在讀Irvine valley college, 住Woodbridge, 週三到,週四還去吃了海底撈,週五看醫生,醫院是Tustin 和Santa ana交界那間,foothill regional medical center!

大家互相通報有去海底撈吃飯的人或去過這間醫院的人也自我隔離😷😷😷

We should all stay home and avoid other people just like the good people of China.
That'll show the virus who's boss!


Who's going to Home Depot and buying up all the N95 masks?

I see the sarcasm here. I do think some warnings would be nice and people can wear the mask if they wish, wash their hands often, don’t use shopping cart or avoid busy places. I will do all of the above when I am in Irvine. I could let my guard down and use the shopping carts at Northgate market.

If the virus becomes wide spread here, I'll be telecommuting from home.  There's too much misinformation and rumors floating around right now.

Over the weekend I went to Costco and stocked up another 30 gallons of water.  If your long term emergency food storage is freeze dried foods, be aware that you will need more water per day for cooking.

Canned foods have shorter shelf life (1-5 years) but usually do not require additional water.  Costco's canned chicken is a great addition for low carb diet and easy to rotate through monthly use.

Always helps to have water, a full tank of gas, and either a portable generator / solar panel for these "just in case" moments. Even with masks, sanitizers, and other preventatives, ANY virus could spread wild, causing another Spanish Flu epidemic scenario:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu

At least from the reporting so far the mortality rate isn't high relative to other pandemics. It would be helpful to have these figures checked over again by a 3rd party IMHO as I'm skeptical of any "Official Government Responses". Look at the Ebola outbreaks and the underreporting then....

The info of the man is fake. The infected woman is verified by Chinese neighbors living in Woodbridge. Although not publicized yet but majority of residents of Woodbridge are taking extreme precautions and avoiding busy places. Diamond Jamboree, District Costco and South Coast Plaza the mother visited while in her contagious period before she got really sick.

if this is true and the mother has a student in IVC, what's the state of this student, is he/she in isolation or keeps attending classes?

If you were forced to leave your bug-in location (home), what you actually need is bug-out bag and backup stash/cache.  5 gallon buckets with gamma lids (avail at home depot) can keep your backup supplies safe for few years when buried.  Put your stuff inside backpack, put backpack inside bucket, bury/stash bucket.  There are numerous parks and trails around Irvine suitable for this purpose, bring a folding shovel with you on a hike to test the soil.

There are numerous web sites, articles, blogs on what to put in your bug out bag.  All I'll say is before you spend any money, check your closet, drawers, and pantry first.  That sweater you haven't worn for years?  Perfect.  Worn socks/underwear/jeans with small hole?  Good enough.  Get free map from AAA office.

P.S.  The 1L bottle Glaceau "Smart Water" and Costco 1 gallon water jugs (sold in 6 packs) tend to last longer in storage without undesirable taste.  I've had the Costco 1 gallon water jugs stored in backyard container for 3 years and it's still drinkable.  It was never in direct sunlight but the backyard storage container is left outdoors through summers and winters.

The el cheapo small bottled water at supermarket?  Left in garage for 1 summer and it tasted weird.

I moved to Cerritos area and shop at Costco in Norwalk.

For survivalist supplies I recommend major surplus and survival in Gardena.  They stock canned water for lazy folks who don’t want to rotate stock.

=======

Here’s an idea for ‘wet can’ rotation. If you purchase boxes of canned food for emergencies but got tired of eating it in rotation, you can donate to canned food drives at work and school — just make sure it has not expired and has at least 6-12 months remaining on best used by date.

If you do this every year you can make sure that the canned food supply in your pantry is relatively fresh.  I recommend stocking basic items like canned meats, fruits and vegetables instead of microwaved meals.  B&M also makes canned bread, avail at Stater Bros supermarket.

In regarding to misinformation and fakes.

Don’t be too haste in gather and broadcast information

This is output by the City of Irvine PD today.

The Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA) has confirmed that the  Orange County patient who tested positive for the novel coronavirus is a male in his 50s. Due to patient confidentiality, no additional information is known at this time. The OCHCA is the lead agency for health related issues in Orange County. Please follow their social media platforms or visit their website at http://www.ochealthinfo.com/phs/about/epidasmt/epi/dip/prevention/novel_coronavirus for additional information.  The City of Irvine and Irvine Police Department will continue to monitor.

When I learned of the misinformation, I researched numerous sources that published the original article.

The Center for Disease Control undoubtedly is the most trusted source, and an infected patient is indeed a man.

Neighbors in Woodbridge, my trusted source from SVG and I have all misled the sex because of the google translate glitch I discovered this morning by copy and pasted the original Chinese article referring the patient only as ”he or him” and the only reference to a female was ”daughter attending IVC.” Google translated ” to visit her daughter,” and that started the connotation the mother of a female student got infected with the coronavirus.

Below is the link to the original Chinese article https://www.wenxuecity.com/news/2020/01/26/9056897.html

This is the content of the Chinese text followed by the English translation. Google screwed up big time:

今天,来自美国疾病预防控制中心CDC最新证实:

这名南加州的患者,是美国第3位被诊断出来,自中国的新型类肺炎病毒的患者。

我们担心的事情还是发生了

加州的首例确诊新型冠状肺炎患者还是出现了

且在华人聚居区——南加州大洛杉矶地区橙县

他是从武汉来洛杉矶橙县旅游的,患者60多岁,昨天也就是周六午夜,正式确认病毒检测呈阳性。

有未经证实的消息称,这名患者是从武汉,来看望在湾区社区大学IVC读书的女儿。

Irvine Valley College也是尔湾知名的社区大学,有不少来自中国的留学生。

该机构的一名发言人说,这名患者目前正在一家医院接受隔离治疗,情况良好。

目前,在与疾病预防控制中心和加州公共卫生部协商后,正在直接跟踪与该病例有密切接触并有感染风险的所有个人。

将监视任何密切接触者,并确保在他们生病时提供适当的评估和护理。

美国疾病控制与预防中心的指导意见指出,与病例有过偶然接触的人(在同一家杂货店或电影院)感染的风险最低。

但让我们比较忧心的是,橙县(Orange County)位于洛杉矶(Los Angeles)和圣迭戈(San diego)之间。受到华人新移民欢迎的尔湾(Irvine)就在橙县,到2016年,亚裔已经成为尔湾的最大族裔。
刚刚在网络论坛收到的消息:

网友评论:

-应该留在家里自我隔离,在明知现在武汉疫情的情况下飞来LA跟逃跑有什么区别,坑了自己娃是小,坑学校及周边洛杉矶人,还有同飞机的人都处于危险之中了……

-爾灣的華人已經把他的行徑路線都找到了,孩子在讀Irvine valley college,住Woodbridge,週三到,週四去吃了海底撈,週五看醫生,醫院是Tustin 和Santa ana交界那間,大家互相通報有去海底撈吃飯的人或去過這間醫院的人也自我隔離


Today, the CDC from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently confirmed:

This Southern California patient is the third patient in the United States to be diagnosed with a new type of pneumonia virus from China.

What we worry about still happens

First patient diagnosed with new type of coronary pneumonia in California still appears

And in the Chinese community-Orange County, Greater Los Angeles, Southern California

He traveled to Orange County, Los Angeles from Wuhan. The patient was in his 60s, and yesterday, midnight on Saturday, officially confirmed a positive virus test.

There is unconfirmed news that the patient came from Wuhan to visit her daughter who is studying at IVC in Bay Area Community University.

Irvine Valley College is also a well-known community college in Irvine, with many international students from China.

A spokesman for the agency said the patient is currently in isolation at a hospital and is doing well.

Currently, following consultations with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the California Department of Public Health, all individuals in close contact with the case and at risk of infection are being directly followed.

Any close contacts will be monitored and ensured that appropriate assessments and care are provided when they become ill.

Guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that people who have had casual contact with the case (at the same grocery store or movie theater) have the lowest risk of infection.


But what worries us more is that Orange County lies between Los Angeles and San diego. Irvine, popular with new Chinese immigrants, is in Orange County. By 2016, Asians had become Irvine's largest ethnic group.


Message just received in the web forum:
Reviews:

-Should stay at home and isolate myself, knowing what is the difference between flying to LA and escaping under the circumstances of the Wuhan epidemic, it is dangerous to hang out, the pit school and the surrounding Los Angeles people, and those who are on the plane are in danger Now ...

-The Chinese in Irvine have found his course. The child is studying at Irvine valley college, living in Woodbridge, arriving on Wednesday, eating Haidilao on Thursday, seeing a doctor on Friday, and the hospital is at the junction of Tustin and Santa ana Everyone informed each other that people who went to Haidilao to eat or who had visited this hospital also isolated themselves.

The problem is when TI called you out on your false information, instead of retreating, you double-downed on your version and called everyone else's fake news.  Then you acted like you had a primary source when in reality, you were just using google translate and essentially plagiarizing your source.

Normally, this wouldn't be such a big deal, but in propagating your own version of fake news, you just fueled the fire to create more pandemonium.

In my initial post, I posted what my friend wrote to me in Chinese. I posted it exactly. The Chinese text did mention ”mother” in Chinese. In Woodbridge, the neighbors are saying the same as well. What I posted was her text and not something I plagiarized from the Chinese internet.

The sex of the patient is irrelevant. The virus does not discriminate whether the carrier is a man or a woman. The importance is the subject resides in Woodbridge, he shopped and dined in Irvine and the daughter is among the IVC population.

So far have you seen any statement from Irvine to warn the public? The subject is a resident of Woodbridge. His daughter is a student of IVC. He dined at a restaurant at Diamond Jamboree, and shopped at the 99 Ranch Market. These are crowded places and so is the campus of IVC. The city has a responsibility to warn the public. Have I not posted none of you would have any clue this is happening to your own backyard.

Even the District Costco notified the employees to take precautions. Most Chinese Customers are wearing a mask.

During Lunar New Year, the Chinese Restaurants are packed and super crowded. Who knows during this time what could have happened. It's too late. This is irresponsible. The infected patient in Washington state the agency disclosed the city where the patient was treated. Here is OC is vague and silent

@IHS,
I see your concern and also thank you for giving us warnings. The issue here isn’t your genuineness. It’s the information no one knows what is true. What if that whole story of a Woodbridge resident with a daughter at IVC is a made up story? There is a good potential that is the fake news whereas that OC man in his 50s is the true story. Maybe there isn’t a single person with this corona virus in Irvine. I personally don’t know what is true yet. You seem to be very firm with your position, but just saying your source could be in the wrong. Although I’m with you hoping no one gets this virus in this city or nearby.

I never said City of Irvine is lying. Lying meant City of Irvine denied the fact the patient’s residence is not in Irvine.

Read the title of this thread.

I will use my logic here. A Chinese is wealthy enough to travel to Wuhan and living in OC. Possibly someone with a strong mainlander tie? Well which OC City has the highest population of Mainlanders?

I’ve already posted about this above. I feel your pain. But you still seem to be posting based on assumptions. Irvine does have many Chinese, but it still doesn’t mean it has a corona virus patient.

About lying, that’s why I also wrote “/hiding.” Both are in the same context, but if the word lying bothers you then I’ll YF it and delete the post to either “.” Or “*”  :D. In all seriousness, I believe your post gave us good warnings for us to stay safe. But it doesn’t mean what you wrote or that Chinese texts you got is the legitimate source.

Edit/added: Let me ask you. What is the purpose of this thread? Is it to announce how the city of Irvine is corrupted or is it to warn everyone to stay safe?

Train to Busan (2016) was a big financial success.  But when they tried to replicate the success with Chang Gwol (Rampant) in 2018 it bombed.

Kingdom (2019) was made possible with Netflix funding.  Fortunately it was at least a success, unlike Arthdal Chronicles.

Everyone, please stop spreading rumors and fake news about the virus. The IVC rumor is totally fake Chinese social media hysteria:

http://marketing.ivc.edu/news/archive/2020/01/27/coronavirus-information-and-health-guidelines.aspx

On Monday, January 27, following unverified social media posts claiming the person infected with the virus was the parent of an Irvine Valley College (IVC) student, OCHCA informed college administration that there has been no evidence of person-to-person transmission of the virus in Orange County​.
Additionally, OCHCA officials stated that had there been any link of exposure to IVC students or staff, college officials would have been notified directly by the CDC and OCHCA. To date, no such notification has been made as no credible “close contact” link exists to any IVC student or staff member.

The reason mainland China people think the govt is hiding something is because that's how the Communist Party operates in their homeland. Mainland Chinese do not understand that in the US, the CDC and health authorities tell the truth. Don't act like a Mainlander. Don't panic. Don't spread rumors.

In my initial post, I posted what my friend wrote to me in Chinese. I posted it exactly. The Chinese text did mention ”mother” in Chinese. In Woodbridge, the neighbors are saying the same as well. What I posted was her text and not something I plagiarized from the Chinese internet.

The sex of the patient is irrelevant. The virus does not discriminate whether the carrier is a man or a woman. The importance is the subject resides in Woodbridge, he shopped and dined in Irvine and the daughter is among the IVC population.

That’s only half of your original post. The other half is about Irvine lying/hiding facts. Was it true? If not, then that should also be addressed.

So far have you seen any statement from Irvine to warn the public? The subject is a resident of Woodbridge. His daughter is a student of IVC. He dined at a restaurant at Diamond Jamboree, and shopped at the 99 Ranch Market. These are crowded places and so is the campus of IVC. The city has a responsibility to warn the public. Have I not posted none of you would have any clue this is happening to your own backyard.

Even the District Costco notified the employees to take precautions. Most Chinese Customers are wearing a mask.

During Lunar New Year, the Chinese Restaurants are packed and super crowded. Who knows during this time what could have happened. It's too late. This is irresponsible. The infected patient in Washington state the agency disclosed the city where the patient was treated. Here is OC is vague and silent

'Tis the time when the fake news prevail. Everyone is still exposed to the truth. Only a few will accept...

I kind of knew it was fake when they specifically named places like DJ, South Coast Plaza, IVC, Woodbridge, and etc.

Whoever created this fake news failed to know the majority of Chinese people reside in Eastwood Village ;D.

https://www.ocregister.com/2020/03/25/orange-county-to-release-city-data-on-coronavirus-cases-starting-friday/

County Health reluctant to disclose cities with infection due to confidentiality.

Finally a few days ago the county has to release information to alert the public. I do think releasing it now is way too late. Absent statistics people were not serious enough and lived life without taking extra precaution allowing infections to spread  the last 2 months since this thread started. It’s just recently last week retails in OC began taking measure like disinfecting carts, door knobs, gas pump handles and taped markers of social distancing. Unfortunately this is way too late.
