Just got off the phone with 811. So even if you have symptoms (I don't have a fever)  they wont test you unless you came into contact with a positive case or have travel history.

 

How is anyone to even know this?

Not to be crass...but does anyone seriously care about sports at this moment in time? It's about the last thing on my mind at the moment.

Aside from the entertainment aspect, some of us work in the sports/fantasy sports field. So everything getting shut down does have an impact.

Everything is largely being shut down. 'Sports' are far from alone there.

I'm not overly concerned about missing Canucks games.

Mind you if they were winning more in the last little bit.........

:lol:

I'm not saying they're alone. You asked if anyone cares about sports? I do, as it affects my work.

 

I understand the need to shut it down, but it's not just people's entertainment that gets affected.

Yes...but that applies to literally almost everything right now. First and foremost people's health and well being. Secondarily jobs (yes, sports included), people's livelihoods and homes, the economy etc... sure.

you understand the virus cannot be shut out

that is not the goal

but it seems to be your goal

it is not possible

 

the plan is to stretch out the period of population infection

so that the medical system is not over stretched

and so that everyone can get proper treatment

 

the virus will be here no matter what

not sure what your posts are hoping to achieve

I think people are just having a tough time wrapping their head around this...…….most have never had their life affected by anything like this before

 

I totally agree with all your posts on this subject Coastal

 

But I just do not think they understand it is not a matter of "IF" I get the virus, but "when"

 

And the government is just trying to delay, when you get it, so there will be enough doctors, nurses and hospital beds for all that need it

 

Keep on beating the drum...………...you will never teach them all, but if you can get 30% more to understand, you have done your job....

 

Stay healthy, my friend!

Exactly. That is some grade A stupidity right there.

Lack of basic health safety supplies as per below, still incoming flights from high risk countries, waited until yesterday to post a travel advisory, relying on panicky and stupid TP hoarding public to stay home, wash hands, keep social distance etc... oh yeah, we're well prepared...:rolleyes:

I think they know how limiting those testing parameters are, but they just don't have any other choice.

I've heard through someone (not a doctor) that this virus will affect the elderly and those with respiratory problems, etc. the worst. For some reason children are immune. She said we are basically okay, this will be just like the flu if we get it, and our immune systems will be able to fight it off. 

 

Is this true? Is the average fairly healthy person (under 60) really in any danger?

 

I find some people are pretty relaxed with the whole pandemic, but others are seriously worried. I'm getting more paranoid, the more I watch the news.

Because they deem there to be no risk and if everyone went for a test over a cough it would be a waste of resources.....sort of like every year when people go to see med pros for a cold or flu.....waste of time and resources.

I would also recommend watching this. Try not to panic....
