California city protests against coronavirus infection there
A California federal court is considering a lawsuit from the city of Costa Mesa. Thus, they are trying to block the transportation of coronavirus patients to the territory of the city. This is stated in the video “Voices of America”.
The person who is standing with the banner in front of the court says that the building they want to put patients in does not meet any standards.
“In this building, mental disorders were once treated, no other diseases were treated here. Several years ago, this building was found unsuitable even for the homeless, so I don’t think this place is for infected people, ”says Costa Mesa resident Chris Lipsi.
The police are not letting anyone inside the Fairview Development Center; this building is owned by the government. Since 1959, it functioned as a psycho-neurological dispensary. However, since 2015 is in the process of closing.
The homes of one of the residential areas of the Costa Mesa are located a few tens of meters from the center of Fairview. Local residents do not understand how they can bring infected people to their densely populated area.
“I think this is a terrible decision. Other options can be found, ”says Costa Mass resident Grace Meyer.
“There are a lot of inhabitants, many families, children. There is a school nearby, the authorities should find the best option, ”says Gerli, a resident of Milan.
“My mother worked in that center, there were people with mental disorders and I’m not sure that this place is equipped to fight the coronavirus,” says Adam Knyapek.
In total, more than 100 people live in the city of Costa Mesa, which is located in the suburbs of Los Angeles.
Costa Mayor Mayor Katrina Foley said that the court was postponed for another week, at the beginning of March, therefore, until the transportation of coronavirus-infected people to the city will take place.
“Why we are treated differently, why the Costa Mesa does not have protection, the law provided for in such emergency situations. I assure you that we will continue to block this terrible decision - when they want to settle infected with coronavrus among the second most populated city in California, ”said Foley.
The mayor said that this decision may be political, because in other states there are better adapted medical facilities.
Residents of the Costa Mass, who were at the court hearing, assured that they would protest.
“They will not do this, 3 million people live in our region, we will defend our rights and fight,” says Jennifer Sterling.
Now Americans infected with coronavirus, who had previously been evacuated from Wuhan and the cruise ship, are quarantined at the Travis military base in northern California.
The US federal government states that patients should be immediately separated from healthy patients and placed separately under special medical supervision. If it weren’t for the court, they would already have to be in the center of the Fairview in the Costa Mass.
