Coronavirus

Chronic care homes have definitely been the most overlooked part of the virus.
In Ontario (probably Quebec too) the government is taking it seriously now.
Stay well.

thanks everyone. People from China and other similar countries are totally baffled as to why we don't all wear masks. We should have seen it coming. I definitely don't want to catch this because I have asthma problems, so not so good.

What's funny (well not funny but strange) is that I have a friend that was stuck on the Diamond Pricess and that all seamed so unreal to me when she was writing emails to me from the ship in quarantine, now she's back to Canada after a month quarantine and the disease seem to have followed her here and she was lucky that her and her husband did not catch it. She said they heard people coughing in every rooms around them at night. It's insane! She was supposed to return to Canada on February 6th but got stuck there for a very long time. It was not a pleasant cruise and now is not a pleasant time.

From my point of view, I find that Canada is not really doing that bad.
Here in Manitoba we immediately closed the schools and did the prevention (stay home etc.)

I'm an immigrant from France and when I see how it has been mismanaged in Europe, I'm really sad for my homeland but so happy to be here with you! In France, a lot of people don't even respect the instruction to stay at home. They're selfish and arrogant so it's no surprise there is so many dead.

So yes... the situation could be better managed here in Canada, but when we look at the United States, I think we are pretty good on this side of the border. Just NY have 180k+ Confirmed COVID people... and this is just starting.

Stay save my friends.

From my point of vue, working at an elderly caring home that is currently infected, I find it totally stupid that they stopped visitors only to allow anyone and anything to come to work in close proximity with the elderly people without any protection.

Why stop them from seing their loved ones only to let the employees to bring the disease to them? it was only a matter of time before this hapened, and I told them so a month ago. No one beleived me.

They could have allowed visitors but make them wash their hands, keep social distancing and wear a mask. They SHOULD have make every care giver wear a maks when ever they were anywhere close to a resident. When feeding, cleaning etc. That would have done it and we would not have the horrid contamination we see now in so many elderly caring homes. In one of them in Montreal there is currently a criminal investigation because 31 elderly dies in short time and some where found dead soiled in shit. They were not fed, not cleaned.

I don't know if there is such situation in the USA..I doubt it.

Of course Canada is doing better than France, for now. You are in Manitoba and you don't have too many cases. I live beside Montreal, and we are starting to look like Italy here. I don't see Quebec fairing any better any time soon. People here are not disciplined, not very intelligent about it. At my work place, the manager, especially one, is still getting within a feet from the administrative staff although this is illegal. I took a photo of her talking with our receptionnist on April 2, and she's way too close, and she does it all the time. I am very tempted to post it on Facebook for everyone to see...

In our stretch of the block, the neighbours have been having crowd parties with multiple nannies (not live in), multiple families (some from other blocks), and lots of adults, teenagers, young children and a cat (part stray) all right next to each other. Inches away. Maybe 20 at a time. Even bringing chairs to sit next to our property on the sidewalk. Drinking alcohol on the street, even in the morning! Yesterday my wife caught them letting their kids pull out our plants! We had to berate them and they didn't even understand, much less apologize.
Plus the squirrels are shamelessly digging in my Sarr pot on the deck.
What to do, I don't know who's worse, the squirrels or the squirrely people. At least squirrels can't give you Coronavirus (yet).
If squirrels start spreading the virus, it's open season. Sorry for any PETA types but I've had it. I'm sure they're waiting for my tomatoes, the despicable rodents! They demolished our Cardinal plants in the back, too.

Apparently cats can carry the virus.
I'd just go over, start talking to them, then break into a massive coughing fit.

If only my wife would let me make one. Can you imagine the Coronavirus neighbours scattering when there's an incoming squirrel! That would get rid of them.

Looks like it's time to look into falconry for those squirrels :p
