    Why didn’t they “Quarantine” the Johns Hopkins Hospital Provider like they are doing with everyone else???? Johns Hopkins should let the “General Public” know who this Provider is and also notify all of their Patients as well. Don’t keep any “Secrets” from the “General Public”. Also, there is no “Guarantee” that this “Provider” will in fact stay in their own home and not go out in public and infect others. What in the h**l is Johns Hopkins thinking?????? “Quarantine” this “Provider As Soon As Possible”.
