This story raises lots of questions: https://blnnews.com/2020/03/16/corona-was-already-here-you-just-didnt-know-it/
We know ISU has students from foreign countries. Since Illinois kids can go to college out of state for less than in Illinois, ISU actively recruits foreign students.
This is from the 2019 enrollment recap: Fall 2019 Enrollment Report
Some of those non-citizens could be illegal immigrants, Illinois doesn’t care.
Still, ISU had 558 non-citizens students on campus. These are people who probably wouldn’t be in Normal if not attending ISU.
Go back to the first story. Chinese students returned to campus after Christmas wearing masks. Corona virus testing didn’t exist in January, so there is no way to verify what went on to make other students sick.
We know diseases eradicated here decades ago are resurfacing because around the world they still exist. We know Wuhan Corona virus originated in China.
The question is:
What is ISU doing to protect us from foreign diseases?
In the case above, zero.
