WESTCHESTER CO. (INTELLIHUB) — U.S. national Guard troops began to arrive in New Rochelle during the wee hours of the morning on Thursday in an attempt to contain the deadly SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus contagion which has been proven to be able to survive in the air for three hours.
A video posted to Twitter shows U.S. military helicopters closing in on the city from above.
Officials have ordered the shutdown of schools, places of worship, and other public gatherings which they say will be off-limits for several weeks while disinfecting operations are being conducted.

Needless to say, the town of 79,946 residents may look like the following scene from the walking dead in the coming days.
Thursday morning, the city appeared to be empty as residents hunkered down inside following official public health announcements.

Meanwhile, back in Washington, the White House Coronavirus Task Force claims to be currently wargaming mitigation strategies for New Rochelle but no plans have been publically announced.

As a result of the news, price gouging has been taking place in the community.
Nearly four and a half dollars for a two-ounce bottle of hand sanitizer. That is nearly $2.25 per ounce!
Few are catching on to what may be to come.
A Tweet posted by Twitter user @Redpill137 expresses concern over something that does not add up.
“#NewRochelle, NY is riddled with the Israeli #coronavirus. It is now the largest cluster in the US with 100+ confirmed cases. We have now deployed the National Guard to quarantine the Jewish neighborhood, yet there is no ban on flights from #Israel.,” the Tweet explains.

Withal, it appears that the U.S. military may actually be prepositioning to take the Bronx and Manhattan into hot martial law and may not actually be focusing on the city of New Rochelle as officials claim. (i.e. The brunt of the cluster may not be in New Rochelle but rather in Manhattan and the Bronx)
Intellihub editor-in-chief Shepard Ambellas reveals intel suggesting just that in the following Tweet:
BREAKING INTEL: The @NationalGuardNY to use New Rochelle as a satging point to set up and eventually take Manhattan and the Bronx into hot #martiallaw #FEMAcamps #quarantine #Coronavirus #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/w3ewJoi1Ks

If the military uses New Rochelle as a staging area it would make it easy for them to quarantine the Bronx and Manhattan by just sealing off several major roadways which would ultimately limit all traffic and pedestrian flow in and out of the vicinity.
Is the current 1-mile “containment zone” in New Rochelle just a staging point for the U.S. military to full quarantine and take Manhattan and the Bronx into all-out martial law?
