South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem urged South Dakotans to act responsibly by staying home voluntarily, rather than the state government having to mandate “shelter-in-place” order to keep the Wuhan virus at bay. “I want to take a moment to ask each and every one of you to pause, to take a step back,” Noem said. “For South Dakota, we expect this to take many, many weeks; perhaps months to run its course.” “Put down your smartphones, turn off your TVs, maybe go for a walk. Visit with your families, spend some time with them, call a loved one, just take a break. Focus on the good things you have in your life… My hope is that despite this situation, we all find a way to allow this to help bring us together.” Noem made clear that while the virus is new, combating an outbreak is not. “This is not an ancient plague. We have the knowledge and the resources of modern medicine that give us the tools to defeat this, as we have so many other illness that we have dealt with in the past, from polio, to the flu. Rest assured that we will do so,” Noem said.Perfect facts, perfect advice, perfect tone. The first sign of light in this universal darkness and murderous madness. The first time any government official at any level has acknowledged that people are ALIVE. Everyone else assumes we're passive inanimate receptacles without immune systems.
