Johnny Doe says:

Who is Ryan to say the virus has been taken of streets and into family's? And furthermore he says people who MAY . MAY be sick might need to be removed from their family's and taken somewhere.. WHERE EXACTLY… WHO GIVES THIS CREEP AUTHORITY TO SAY THIS… WOULD HE WANT HEALTY MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY OR MAYBE HIMSELF DRAGGED AWAY. I CAN'T SEE ANYONE GOING QUIETLY
