Indeed, Fairfield county, the higher overseeing county to Westport, reports of 384 cases, highest in any from this Eastern state.
But the remarkable tale behind the confirmed cases, of which could create more catastrophe, would be enough to give the Center for Disease Control (CDC) a nightmare straight out of a Stephen King novel.
So, a brief breakdown of what from and how the party evolved.A man, who was about to return to South Africa, threw a party in his own honor on March 5. Soon after arriving in his home, he observed some relative symptoms. Dutifully, he got his test accordingly and proved positive for Covid-19.
Immediately did he alert the party-goers, but alas ‘twas too late.
The Yale New Haven Health System’s newly-instated call center went through a maelstrom of worried phone calls and reports after the incident, creating a public hygiene response crisis.
Chief quality officer Dr. Steven Choi claims that there should be no finger-pointing or blaming, contrary to the public tendency that might. Absolutely, there was total control and no immorality from the party-goers’ standpoint. They knew not of the contagion, nor was the alert level as austere as is now.
However, aside from the official exemption of responsibilities, there should be no undermining of the implications that the said party might wreak havoc upon the local community.
“That infected person could very easily infect everyone at the party, especially if most of the party occurred in one or two rooms in the house, where people are touching silverware, cups, utensils, doorknobs,” Choi said.“To some extent, Westport is a cautionary tale, or a harbinger of what’s to come.
I hope the 168 other towns in Connecticut see what happens in Westport and act accordingly.”
The Governor of the state of Connecticut Haskell has met the public scrutiny with defiance. The spread is now “past the point of contact tracing,” Haskell told CNN. “The most productive thing people could do right now is not point fingers, but stay at home as much as possible.”
State, local and health officials echo the same message: stay home and avoid gatherings.
“This battle will be won or lost outside the hospitals,” Choi said. “It is certainly the first time in my career where public health measures are so critical to the welfare of the community.”
