Do the sanctions prevent other countries from offering humanitarian type aid ? 

I would have to look into that but I think they do.

I find it odd how the US is offering aid, yet receiving aid themselves. Obviously it is different type of equipment/supplies but makes one wonder what sorts of things they were offering to Iran that they have to spare. 
 

I wouldn't think that US sanctions would stop Russia from sending Iran aid or medical supplies if they desired to do so

In another remarkable sign of the times, Russia on Wednesday delivered a planeload of medical equipment to the U.S. intended to aid the American government’s management of the outbreak.

Scum of the earth...sure, "selling at cost to his friends" in a mall parking lot.  Has the gall to argue his case. Should be able to confiscate his car too in my view.  And Revenue Canada should follow up as well to see how much he's reported in earnings.

 

In a time of crisis when people prey on the vulnerable and interrupt supply chains that could be used by professionals at risk trying to help others, I have zero tolerance for these lowlifes. 

 

The masks should all be donated to hospitals.  Good work, bylaw officer!

I worked with that man, he's a good fellow. Used to be VPD wayyyyyyyyy back in the day but he decided it wasn't for him.

People don't like Trump (I am neutral on him as a politician, I think he is a despicable human), but this man is without a doubt the worst leader of a democratic leader on earth. This is unacceptable behaviour for an elected official. What a despicable man.

Yup, can't recall his name (not that I'd give it out anyway) but it was a few years ago that we worked together. The guy takes the job very seriously, but was a pleasure to work with as a colleague, very joyous man.

I can’t take Duterte seriously even when he says the military has his permission to shoot and kill.

Brian Kemp, the Governor of Georgia, is giving Bone Spurs a run for his money in the "clueless about corona" department:

Hey Georgia: I bet Stacy Abrams is looking pretty good right now, amirite?

It could get ugly with a 2nd wave following the packed church congregations for Easter in the Deep South.  I mean REAL ugly.

 

Not much you can do if people refuse to listen to reason.

The death count is regrettable, but the new infections numbers seem promising to me.  I have faith in BC to kick this horrible virus to the curb.  But it depends on all of us

Very true, Dick. No time for people to loosen up on social distancing. Time to keep it up and stay hard on distancing. 

My fear is that we do a good job of keeping things in check...then borders and travel open up a bit and it goes south.  Literally.

 

The efforts really do pay off but it's a more the merrier thing.  We can all buckle down for a month or so and really make a dent in this or have some floundering around, extending the timeline.

 

I wish we could just slap people with a stick who aren't obeying the guidelines.  I also worry that the numbers aren't realistic and that people who aren't being tested have it (but aren't sure so may not be as committed to the process).

There is something not so subliminal in these two sentences.

Not sure what the modelling is saying in BC atm but in AB, they are predicting it to peak a month from now. Based off that, the provincial government believes they are well suited to deal with those peak numbers they are predicting. As you said, you still need everyone doing their part regardless of where you live.
