Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No confirmed cases (attribute to casual contacts) in Baltimore City yet. State gov reporting focused on surrounding counties with peculiar emphasis on "imported" incidence--as if a hazard of international travel by the affluent. Begging the question of students' transience in this college town; local news detected suspect cases returning from Spring Break travel at Loyola U; JHU surveillance is a PR mystery, atm.

"Mutual aid networking" started up in Bal'more early last week by public school administrators who anticipated that the governor's "emergency management" messages, Bal'more City Hall power vacuum, and feckless hospitals' prep led by Hopkins Medicine celebrity stats left too much to imaginary mobilization.

Local media is just beginning to marshal PSAs and featured ad hoc neighborhood initiatives that will in due time weave comprehensive, volunteer services from the poverty of most residents. Bal'more is truly a city accustomed to volunteer institutions, b/c City hall has long been so thoroughly unreliable.
