Update (1345ET): If you’re wondering what caused the latest leg lower in stocks, we believe we’ve found the answer: 83 people in Long Island’s Nassau County are being monitored for coronavirus infection, threatening to make the CDC’s warnings about imminent community outbreaks come true.

The story was initially reported by a local radio station before it was picked up by other local outlets.

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran told residents “do not panic” at a press conference. Six have been tested so far, five confirmed to not have it.

Nassau health officials say they’re working with both state and federal agencies to monitor the situation. Gov. Cuomo has weighed in on the situation, affirming that only one possible case is still pending after 27 were tested. He added that no matter what happens here, he expects the virus will eventually arrive in NY State.

Meanwhile, five new cases were recently confirmed in Germany, according to Bild, this after Health Minister Spahn gave a stirring warning earlier, part of which we mentioned below: He also confirmed that some infection chains in Germany can’t be tracked. That would bring the total to 23.

Update (1250ET): A few days ago, the CDC’s Dr. Fauci was on CNBC affirming a WSJ report that human trials for a coronavirus vaccine could enter testing in a matter of months, though we’re likely still at least a year shy of a usable vaccine.

Now, another FDA official is reportedly claiming that the three-month time-frame for human trials to begin might be a little too optimistic.

In recent days, the market has found solace in optimistic vaccine headlines. We’re curious to see if that dynamic will continue.

    If this gets hot in NYC you will see full blown riots in the street. When the welfare zombies find out there is no more free stuff nothing will be able to hold back the violence.
