Dr. Oz doesn't have the best track record to begin with. He often sells unproven sketchy products on his show which is terrible to begin with given he's supposed to be a doctor we can "trust". Now he's fine with killing people? Who's in his pocket this time for him to say that?

Stocks in a crematorium?  Kind of like Marty Byrd?

There are a lot of schools in the states that are facades of businesses (the private schools in particular). Those businesses would be losing money at that point and I wouldn't be surprised if they were panicking at the moment and trying to "get a say" in when they are opening back up.

Too bad really because they closed the border to China early so they really had a jump start on everyone on containing the spread.

Who says the border with China was the problem?  I've heard that many of the US cases can be traced back to Europe and the UK not directly from China (I'm not letting China off the hook, I'm well aware that this is where the pandemic started)

This twerp probably doesn't even pay his domestic (& probably illegal) help $1200 a month.:lol:  That's probably the average lunch bill for the guy (that he 'writes off' as a business expense).

10 weeks would include 2 months of rent/mortgage.  Which bridge am I sleeping under that my mortgage is that cheap?....and hopefully there's a nice garbage can nearby that I can eat out of.

 

$1200 lasting me 12 weeks, what a joke.

It makes one wonder if there is a decent politician in the entire state of Florida:

Speaking of "grotesque"......You have to be a special type of scumbag to accuse the media of being "gleeful" about the deaths of thousands of people....<_<

Classic projection. What a tool bag

Trump hinting at easing border restrictions into Canada.

 

How about no?   Not yet for sure.

When America sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing disease. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

Simple really. 

 

One person can wait outside the store and help carry the groceries home. A shopping cart inside the store will suffice for one person to get everything needed. A grocery list will make sure that the one person inside the store does not miss anything.

 

Shopping alone is a recommendation from health officials and I've watched video from store managers pleading for people to shop alone - meaning no couples and no kids unless circumstances require that.

 

Personally it does not matter to me. Last time I went shopping I saw several older couples - I have no issues with that.  However there are some people who are deathly afraid of being in close contact with people in the store and overcrowding is a real problem for them. Also the less people the better in protecting staff.

 

I was in the the baking aisle alone when a older lady entered the aisle. I was having a hard time finding yeast of course so was going up and down the aisle. I noticed she was very nervous as I started to get closer to her and she said the aisle was one way only. I knew this but said I was having a hard time finding something. I was a bit annoyed she was calling me out for going the wrong way when I was searching for something lol. I offered for her to pass me but that clearly revolted her by the look of disgust on her face. She very clearly did not want to be close to anyone. I ended up backing out of the aisle and let her pass so I could go back to looking for yeast - which of course was gone.

When stores are limiting the amount of customers at one time, what's the difference if it's me and some other person or me and her? It's not as simple to carry around enough groceries for three weeks as you think, and I personally haven't been in a store that's overcrowded, so maybe that's a mainland issue? Also, if older couples are nervous about grocery shopping they should take full advantage of going first in the morning before everyone else, if that's possible. Also, also, if you have a bulk barn close to you, they tend to have yeast, in my experience.

I wonder how long this will last. I am not sure the economy can handle this for even another Month.

Every week there are more layoffs as people are not spending the money they have or no longer have which has a cascading effect that we have not fully seen the impact yet.

I am sure the authorities are working hard to increase testing and therapies so we can get back to work. But man how unprepared was our government (and most other governments).  Do you think our government will learn from all these mistakes? Like telling us masks do not do anything for the general public which was an obvious lie because we did not have enough for everyone.

What else does our government lie to us about? 

 

It’s a pandemic...

Not one managing entity, whether world body like the WHO, not governments like Ottawa could’ve done anything about it.

 

Not one measure would be adequate until statistics start painting a picture.

 

By that time, it is already way too late. 
 

That is the nature of pandemic. It spreads, people remain asymptomatic for a long time, and then symptoms start to show.

 

When symptoms start to show, millions already have it.

 

To this day, there are asymptomatic people who have it and never would’ve known.

 

An Atlanta hospital developed its own antibody test and tested the entire hospital staff. A staff member came positive for antibodies. That means she had it, never knew it, and has spread it at some point, and maybe still.

 

The story starts at 11:50

 

Lots of blame going around. But really, not one prediction or model could’ve brought anyone to high alert until it was way too late in the game.

 

However, the human brain has to make sense of everything so in this case, it starts looking for broken links and blame.

Getting freaky. I've stuck with this one link for many weeks so as to have the same source.

Have been watching as the overall mortality rate climbs

defined as confirmed cases divided by deaths

2,128,566 cases confirmed 142,624 deaths 539,000 recovered, mortality rate  6.7%

 

Also 7 of the top 21 countries for confirmed cases are over 10% mortality.

 

Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium and the U.K. continue to get hammered.

 

 

After this is all over, it will turn out Canada did some things wrong, but I believe it will turn out Canada got moistly  things right.

Fify

I don't feel the need to cast blame on govts for moving slow in the beginning, even the pos to the south.  It's how it's handled once it's obviously a serious situation.  Our country stepped up and our leaders stepped up and put politics aside (mostly) and avoided the worst case scenario for this first wave.

 

The US? Well............

Obviously it wasnt the only problem but it was the first problem and sharing a border with China they decided to shut it down early. There is a reason why their outbreak is delayed.

 

Unfortunately many other mistakes were made (like all countries) and now it looks like they are going to be in real trouble like USA and Italy.

This has been a  huge concern of mine from day one. Hoping against hope that this virus would be contained and brought under control as best it could as quickly as it could... and not ever turn out to be what it has become. But here we are....

In a perfect world where I were Queen and omnipotent....I'd have quarantined the entire country and instituted the strictest of infectious disease protocols for everyone. But alas, I am not and the learning curve of COVID-19 has been a deadly one. I don't believe for one second that we are even remotely close to being on top of COVID-19 and won't be for some time. I hate being wrong but my worst fears about this virus have all come to pass so far. :(:(:(

Tis a difficult day of quarantine at Chez Cerridwen despite the sunshine and blue sky....

 

 

I feel pretty much the same.......I thought that all along so I'm kind of mentally prepared for the long haul
