  3. Good news today. My doctor called me on his lunch hour. (Never had my Dr. call me before). Said he's renewing refills for 6 months. Still wants me to get my blood sugar checked in the next three weeks. Told me to get out and get some fresh air. (Which I did). And do what I can to get walks and exercise in.

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

  7. That doctor just destroyed the whole faux news narrative. He deserves a medal. Watch the single celled organisms on the far right start sending him death threats now.

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 fo

  11. We will likely never hear a lot of detail but I will throw out my assumption why the S.Koreans have done so well. They probably had military supplies to deal with chemical warfare. More importantly they probably had a active plan on how to deal with large numbers of people infected by chemical or biological agents. This likely goes for Taiwan as well.

  13. I agree, and I chalked this up to a cold, but I'm pretty certain I have a mild strain. The wife's symptoms are the exact same as a few students from my school and the same as mine, minus pink eye. I was sure it was just a cold until my lungs started burning about 8 days ago. I'm a teacher, I get everything, buy i havent felt my lungs burn this way before. I'm glad I have isolated myself from everyone for three weeks. I went two days with no symptoms, but the burning came back last night after some physical exertion the day before........I'm happy to say it greatly reduced overn

  14. My sister just recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Leading up to the birth, she and her daughter have had a cough for 3 weeks and still have it. As a precaution before the c-section, they tested her for C19 and she was negative. My nearly one year old son has had a cough and snotty nose for what seems like since December when we were in the Chilliwack area. We wonder if he's had it but he's not had any other symptoms. In turn, I would assume we all have it if he does as we've been staying home since March 17th. I'm the only one who runs errands. We all also had a norovirus

  21. From what I've been reading, the pendulum has been swinging back and forth quite a bit and now it's more or less in favor of masks, although it seems to be a bit more of a "can't hurt" endorsement rather than a "you must do this" imperative. I think the important thing to bear in mind is that masks are far more important to healthcare professionals than the average citizen and until we can say that the medical community has all they need, the rest of us should probably forgo the use of masks, unless they happen to be Covid-19 positive, or at high risk for infection.

  22. Well, one country's leader enforced social distancing and mass testing almost immediately... ....while the other country's leader tried to pray the virus away after weeks of ignoring it. Now here we are months later....one leader can boast about low infection rates, while the other leader can only brag about how high his ratings are. When this outbreak began, I was constantly tuning in to Trump's pressers for information, now I just tune in occasionally, and that's just for a laugh. The governors pressers are where the real info comes from.

  24. 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).

  31. 25-75 years ago your doctor would regularly tell you to stop drinking and smoking. My granddad was literally told to or he will die. So he quit. why has this changed. we know have even more ways to smoke even more things. we speak about the condition of the mind here during isolation. People are online more, watching media more, watching scary epidemic sci fi movies on Netflix......:more addiction to tech, more addiction to the internet, more addiction to tv. More addiction to fear. Go to bed scared and anxious every night without social interaction an

  36. No we're testing at a much higher rate, per capita we are testing as many as S.Korea is now. We're learning some hard lessons on the whole just-in-time philosophy of hospital supply. Its not like people didn't know this was possible either. There is a new study out of Winnipeg today that you can re-process N95 masks at least 10 times in an autoclave (https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/manitoba-researchers-answer-shortage-n95-masks-1.5518226). This is pretty big deal, and something hospitals should be able to handle since all elective surgeries are stopped and the

  38. The USA has 215,000 cases and 5,100 dead. Canada is 1/10 the population so we should have 21,500 cases and 510 dead....BUT... ...Canada only has 9,700 cases and 129 dead. Canada's response compared to the US response has been light years better. Give your head a slap... And with respect to your bolded, every country in the world has more cases than the numbers show because EVERY country in the world is only testing a small percentage of the population. Good god...

  39. Hey little guy....you do understand Canada has 2.5% of the deaths the US does right? Canada has 1/10 of the population of the US. If Canada did as much of a sh%# poor job of dealing with covid, Canada would have 510 deaths. Slap yourself twice.

Define healthy? first one needs to understand how the body functions properly and why it does so. but until people are educated in that area I suppose the basics: eat well sleep enough move your body challenge your brain continuously repeat until dead. wadr to your Fil, when you say define healthy as a question? I say define living.

But still nice people. iV. Some people are bad and refuse to learn. V. Some people are just bad and dumb. I don't know between categories III-V who causes more damage tho.

  47. I doubt that it comes down to one person listening to different opinions and then arbitrarily making a call on it. More likely, the differing options are discussed in a "round table" format and a course of action decided on by committee and then the spokesperson delivers the information.
