Breaks my heart to see this virus eat the city up the way it has been. But I can't help but become infuriated at the number of residents who still refuse to self-quarantine.


My wife's uncle is literally in a coma right now because of COVID-19 and it looks like he might pass away soon.


This is not a joke!

I was wondering what the situation on the ground looks like. According to reports, New Orleans has experienced more than twice as many COVID-19 deaths per capita as Seattle and New York City but the national news doesn't cover what's going on in New Orleans much.

I know it is shameful, but Washington was first, NYC is NYC, and LA is LA. New Orleans just isn't as newsworthy. BUt unfortunately, if things get worse in New Orleans, "If it bleeds it leads", you can best bet New Orleans will get more press.

Noticed with this morning's update, the rate of new cases and new deaths appear to be leveling off and even declining. Good news, hope it continues. Our Governor's stay at home order appears to be paying off.

Ultimately, I just care that New Orleans (and elsewhere) is getting the assistance that it needs. Media coverage can help to ensure that this happens, but it isn't necessary.

Yep, unless it affects them personally, I think many people don't care and won't take it seriously. My mom and brother are both considered essential there and have to go out every day. I'm very concerned for them because they're both in the high risk category. I'm hoping more people take this seriously

Well, the number of cases jumped dramatically from yesterday. I have a feeling it is easier to catch than some realize.

Well...my wife's uncle was pronounced brain-dead this morning. They are pulling the plug.

Because of the pandemic, we're unable to have a funeral so he's being cremated, but they aren't even able to do that until August. So he will be in a freezer until then.

People, please check on your families. Make sure they are being smart and safe.

STAY HOME!!
