Surviving COVID-19 - A Note From Delegate Nic Kipke

25 Mar 2020 4:36 PM | Jerry Nicklow (Administrator)

Delegate Nic Kipke wrote to the PBA with the following information and resources.

I hope you are doing well and handling the current situation as well as can be expected.  Our situation is hard on all of us in many ways. Our family is self-quarantining at home but I am available by email, phone, and through social media to answer questions and help in any way possible (nicholaus.kipke@house.state.md.us is the best way to contact me).

Silver lining: Family time!

Many are financially hurt, stressed, and a growing number of people are becoming ill with COVID-19 in our area. The number of people infected with COVID-19 saw its biggest single-day increase today, and more people are beginning to need care in a hospital. This leads our health officials to tell us that this is about to get a lot worse. 

Fortunately, slowing the spread has allowed for medical preparations that other areas of the world did not have time for.  In Maryland there are thousands of new hospital beds available in temporary hospitals that have been built by the Maryland National Guard.  Companies like Ford, Tesla, GM, Everlywell, and 3M have taken on the challenge of increasing supply of respirators, tests, and personal protection supplies like face masks which are finally beginning to reach the market.  Even Sagamore Distillery has suspended making Rye Whiskey and is now making hand sanitizer for Johns Hopkins.

While some continue to think that the risk is overblown, I want everyone to know that we can't allow what is happening to people in countries like China, Italy, and Spain to happen here.  If we have to deal with a deadly health pandemic, we are very fortunate that we are dealing with it in the United States of America and we all need to pull together to get through this. Everyone needs to do their part to make sure they are equipped to hunker down and survive several more weeks or longer like this.  Please take special care to quarantine yourself if you have any health conditions or are at risk.  If you think you may be infected CALL your doctor before going so that they can prepare for your visit.  To learn more about that click here:   https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/#Background. Please remember that even if you are young and healthy and not experiencing any symptoms you could still be a carrier, so we all must stay home and follow social distancing guidelines when you must go out.

I've also seen many ways that people are coming together to help one another out.  There are scores of people sewing masks for health workers (click here for a free pattern to use), free food being made available to the homeless and the needy, just yesterday Chairman of the Maryland GOP Dirk & Councilwoman Jessica Haire offered $10,000 to support local Anne Arundel County restaurants with free meals for locals, and Pasadena Boat Works donated 14,000 medical face masks which are critically needed.

 

Congress is working on a package to support states, employers, and individuals deal with the financial effects of this.  The plan seems to be close to final passage and I am hopeful it will provide much needed relief. Also the state has stepped up with many resources, here are some helpful links that may be of interest to you:

So many people have contacted me recently with questions and I can tell there’s tons of anxiety, stress and uncertainty right now; I feel it too. Remember, other generations faced hardships like this and some far worse including many that went on for years. We know this will be short lived and we have incredible national resources to help us overcome the challenge. We will get through this.

Stay healthy!

Sincerely,


Delegate Nic Kipke

        I want to share with you my testimony of how I joined this great organization of ILLUMINATI, Really I was so poor and my life was almost close to death, i tried many times to join illuminati but all was in vain where by i was facing fake people who were claiming to be agents of illuminati. They ate my money without helping me out there i loosed hope in illuminati. But because i was very interested and focused on my dream, I continued trying there I meet another person who told me he will help me out still i didnt trust him at all because of the first pain i passed through,he still also asked me to send him money there i get scared but with time he sent me his membership id card,trust in him little and i accepted to send him money, but what amazed me is that immidiately after sending him money for initiation items,  i got intiated within  2hour  onlines and i recieve my  $1,000,000 directly to my account there i trusted him more and he is the only agent i trust because he helped me seriously. So my friend if you want to join illuminati  contact him on WhatsApp +2348180828544....

    Hello Everyone I want to quickly use this medium to share a testimony on how i was directed to a Legit and real illuminati member who have transformed my life from grass to grace, from being poor to a rich woman who can now boast of a healthy and wealthy life without stress or financial difficulties. After so many months of trying to to be a member of the illuminati and was scammed the sum of $3,000 i became so desperate in being a member online who will not add to my pains, then i decided to contact a friend of mine who recently became a member, we discussed about the issue and to our conclusion she told me about a man called Paul mark who is the grand master in the whole of Africa. So i applied to become a member of illuminati easily without stress and all the preparations were made concerning how to become a member in two(2) days i became a member and the sum of 1.5 million dollars was deposited into my bank account so i want to advice any one who wants to become a member should call him,+2348163028633 or WhatsApp him +2348163028633 or email (illuminatiworldoffamous@gmail.com) he does not know am doing this i pray that lucifer will bless him for the good things he has done in my life.
