Media sensationalism? These are the facts coming out from the best health experts all over the world. This is way beyond opinion vs opinion my dude. 

I work with and live with medical professionals and we are all have the same opinion. These are the people who work in our hospitals care homes and clinics. We all agree on the same thing there is an over reaction going on here we haven’t seen before. This is my last post on this thread I’m going to stick with hockey I couldn’t help but share my opinion for a quick second I all ready regret it. Until the next game we get to chat sports and our Canucks with you all hopefully sooner rather then later. Cheers

Well I'm gonna make a new batch of cannabis infused olive oil.

It's the best when you're sick and in my not so professional opinion, one purely based on personal experience and other anecdotal evidence, helps kill the flu.

 

Also gets you wicked high without having to smoke anything. 

I literally just put in a batch of Blue Dream and honey into my magical butter machine, it's about 15 mins into the cycle

I didn't mean to make you put so much effort and thought into my bitter, anti-capitalist spin.

I do understand the actual implications of what I'm spinning. But it's only been posted for my own entertainment. 

Sometimes I go off on rants and can't help myself. Didn't feel any negativity toward you at all. I like making dialogue and having civil debates.

 

Mainly because when you don't have experience to learn and grow as a person than perspective is the next best thing.

I've been thinking about getting one of those. Ive been using the slow cook oven method for years and I've never messed it up, but a friend recently preached the wonders of his machine and it made me think a bit.

All good, sadly that makes me doubt the capabilities of the Canadian healthcare systems. If you don’t learn from history you’re doomed to repeat it. And what we are seeing around the world is the  effects of originally thinking this wasn’t serious and an overreaction. I just wish the Canadian health care system could see beyond what is happening locally and look at the big picture. I hope you’re right and I wish you and the rest of the Canadian health care professionals  the best of luck if you’re wrong. Cheers.

I get that. Didn't feel like you were mad. Just that I was clowning a bit.

We're good, JYD.

one of the best things I've ever owned, certainly cannabis related.  It's awesome.

if you're a healthcare professional, you should know that going about your lie might be fine for you, as a healthy individual, but if you get infected, don't know it and pass it on to those you care for, then you are responsible.  If this gets a foothold in the boomer generation and care facilities, look out.  Lets not even talk about mutation

Honestly, the biggest reason we should be taking the quarantine measures seriously is because if it spreads to too many people at once, we're going to run the risk of completely overwhelming our public healthcare infrastructure.

 

Most people who contract coronavirus will probably live, but there will still be a large number of people who will require hospitalization because of it. If too many people become seriously ill at the same time, it's entirely possible we won't have enough resources to properly treat them all.

Great post.

 

I have heard ventilators could be in short supply.

The Coronavirus isnt even that bad lol. Unless you're an elderly person you legit dont have nothing to worry about (unless you have health conditions that could lead to complications) influenza kills more people a year than COVID-19 in it's short existence, and it is nowhere near as deadly as SARS.

 

The media is hyping this up way too much. Wash your hands, dont travel, and if you do catch it you will most likely be fine. Some say it's like a normal cold.

 

Just dont take our sports away this close to playoffs! :sadno:

I read if you cram enough tp into all of your orifices coronavirus runs away because it thinks you're actually a butt.

I think, for the most part, quarantines are in place to try and spread out the burden on the health care system.

It is the strangest thing isn't it? 

My wife tried to explain it as 'the dumb-asses don't know what to do in times like these so they just follow each others lead"
