DAMMIT....hope it didn't spread in the care home.

I think it was reported last week that there were 6 people in that care home that tested positive.

Italy extends coronavirus lockdown to entire country Miles Johnson and Davide Ghiglione Italy has announced the entire country will be placed into quarantine conditions in its government’s most dramatic step yet to contain the second largest outbreak of coronavirus outside of China. Giuseppe Conte, Italy’s prime minster, from Tuesday imposed restrictions on the movement of the whole of Italy, a population of over 60m people, with Italians instructed to limit leaving their houses unless for urgent health or work reasons. Schools and universities will be closed across the entire peninsula and all public gatherings will be banned until April 3rd. The emergency measures come after Italy experienced a large jump in the number of cases over the last two days, overtaking South Korea as the largest outbreak outside of China. “If public health is an asset that is endangered, we are forced to impose sacrifices,” Mr Conte said at a press conference on Monday evening, calling the new emergency measures “I stay at home”. “There will no longer be a red zone, the whole of Italy will be a protected area,” Mr Conte said. “We have to avoid moving around other than for emergencies or essential work reasons within designated areas." Early on Sunday morning, Mr Conte’s government announced that large swathes of Italy’s north, centred around the prosperous northern region of Lombardy, would be placed under quarantine conditions.

Just imagine being stuck in Italy.

All that red wine and prosciutto. 

Not sure I could handle it.

Coronavirus can linger in the air for at least 30 minutes and travel up to 4.5 metres

Mon 9 Mar 2020 23:24:23 GMT

 

A report from the South China Morning Post on research findings. 

  • from a group of official researchers from Hunan province investigating a cluster case
In brief:
  • The coronavirus that causes Covid-19 can linger in the air for at least 30 minutes
  • can travel up to 4.5 metres - further than the "safe distance" advised by health authorities around the world
  • it can last for days on surfaces where respiratory droplets land (depends on factors such as temperature and the type of surface - it can survive for two to three days on glass, fabric, metal, plastic or paper)

*********************************

 

This was more than a little frightening.

Did you ever see the movie, “Andromeda Strain”?  An entire town is wiped out by a terrible virus, except one person.  The town drunk.  Alcohol saved him.  Alcohol is the magic pill.  (A baby survived too, but that ruins my point.)

Aren’t vomiting and diarrhea (kind of) ways to drop pounds?  These could be advertised as Richard Simmons lose weight cruises.  I wonder if the boats have enough toilet paper?

That's one way to get rid of Trump. Launch a bunch of corona infested fan boys his way. 

He doesn't stand a chance with his lack of personal hygiene.  The moron can't even wipe his ass successfully.

It’s amazing to me. So it’s the flu or another version of it if that makes you feel better and the first thing that panicked the world is do I have enough toilet paper?  What the fridge. 
 

Our world is so backwards. Political Leadership is struggling to manage social conscience vrs reality because can’t understand reality anymore. I’ve personally stopped reading any article that says virus. Fear monger and click bait at its all time best or worst depending on your lense. 
 

I wish 6 months would pass right now and everyone will be like oh the world didn’t end my bad.

I've always thought, it would be a good business idea to import Mexican water as a weight loss tonic. 

 

Introducing the Montezuma Revenge weight loss program, guaranteed to Flush those pounds away...... ::D

So, what happens when the first NHL player comes down with this, and that WILL happen. The US is WAY behind on testing and as a result, the actual number of cases down there right now, is probably closer to 2500, maybe as high as 10,000.

 

If someone on Edmonton tested positive, not to mention names, but let's say, McDavid. Would they quarantine the whole team as a result?

 

This takes up to 3 weeks to get over and it lives on surfaces for up to 9 days. How many would they infect in that time?
