Ya know, I understand not disclosing personal information of the folks who have acquired this virus. But, don't you think it would be helpful to the general public to at lease include the general area/cities these people live in so people of those communities can take additional step is personally required to prevent or reduce contamination. Such as avoiding a given health clinic or hospital? Some of us have regular visits to these places and also have serious underlying health issues, such as COPD which would lend us to being struck down by this vicious infection if we were to go to a place and sit in a chair the virus is know to be. Just saying. I think it would help. I would avoid a waiting room or WalMart a person in a city where the infection is confirmed.
