Coronavirus outbreak


Recommended Posts

I work as a nurse, the concern is more so towards the older demographic and the immune compromised not the relatively healthy younger folks . That is be vigilant in the regards of clients / patients .

 

 

Also relax on the toilet paper people lol

So tell me genius. How is this going to play out. I want to be able to quote u in a few months and have a good laugh

it all depends on whether they get out in front of it or not.  There are countries taking drastic measures who are able to contain it so far, so if we take decisive action, we might avoid a situation like Italy is in.

Perfect.  Put your money where your mouth is if you catch it.

Look up Cape breton health care crisis.

We had months to get in front of it. That government and media that you guys put so much stock into are the reason we are in this mess

This may sound obvious but some don't seem to understand very obvious things. 

 

The more the virus spreads the harder it is to control. Stopping the spread is paramount. 

 

They also don't know everything about the virus. Being cautious until we all know more is in the best interest of everyone. As the saying goes, better safe than sorry.

as I posted earlier, Chad Staley, a 25 year old pro hockey player in Norther Italy died on Monday night and though the cause of death is "unknown", the rumour is covid.  I do acknowledge that's a rumour, but the location and timing fit.  

 

I'm also tired of people saying it's "just older people".........the boomer population is massive and they are human beings, their lives are every bit as important as others.  It may very well ravage that generation if it gets a foothold.

I haven't seen you post one article as evidence of your stance.  I'd say youre a troll, but given your post history it's clear you truly believe the garbage you spew.

That generation raised me and a lot of other people on this forum.  Have some ****ing compassion; I've literally had my concern for their welfare met with "everyone dies".

 

This is going to hit way too close to home for many of us, unfortunately.

They didn't know crap about SARS, or swine flu, or chicken flu, and this has all the same hallmarks. Ridiculous hype and fear. This has more to do with control than anything, in the end.

this is what bugs me.. fear mongering to generate more control

 

hype and fear to such a degree that people have stopped thinking rationally and there's widespread panic..

 

obviously I don't want to catch this bug (or anyone to catch it) but I'm far more concerned with the economic impacts coming down the pipeline.. at first I was mostly annoyed by it all - not worried about it, but it felt like a senseless disruption.. now I feel like we're all lambs being led to the slaughter, whether a viral slaughter or an economic one..

I’m not saying their lives are unimportant . But that people who have the mindset of this virus won’t affect me because I’m young / healthy , the precautions and being vigilant is in to keep everyone healthy and reduce the spread. Particularly to those who are more suspectible to it.
