It could be an Entitled HoliDazed Fool packing the virus and spreading it on.

Such as:

The mayor of a remote village off British Columbia’s central coast says he’s living proof that someone has ignored the warnings of the province’s health authorities and brought the novel coronavirus to the secluded island.

Canadian police are to begin visiting homes to enforce the government’s COVID-19 quarantine, the RCMP said on Friday, warning that “recklessly” failing to comply could result in a $1-million fine and three years in prison.

Carona Virus Clues:

The possibility that the coronavirus spreads in a mostly stealthy mode among a population of largely young, healthy people showing no symptoms could have major implications...

Sweeping testing of the entire crew of the coronavirus-stricken U.S. aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt may have revealed a clue about the pandemic: The majority of the positive cases so far are among sailors who are asymptomatic, officials say.

Roughly 60 percent of the over 600 sailors who tested positive so far have not shown symptoms of COVID-19, the potentially lethal respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus, the Navy says.

“With regard to COVID-19, we’re learning that stealth in the form of asymptomatic transmission is this adversary’s secret power,”

“It has revealed a new dynamic of this virus: that it can be carried by normal, healthy people who have no idea whatsoever that they are carrying it,”

When the country begins to reopen, it will be a gradual, tentative and potentially frustrating process, experts say. Here’s a primer on who will make the decisions and what has to be considered:

Covid-19 mutations underestimated, Chinese scientists warn, as DEADLIEST strains grip Europe and US

Chinese scientists have found that Europe and America’s East Coast have been infected by some of the most aggressive Covid-19 strains, as they discovered dozens of virus mutations. These destroy a host’s cells faster than others. The ability of the novel coronavirus to mutate has been previously vastly underestimated, a team from China’s Zhejiang University, led by Professor Li Lanjuan, says in a new study. The group found as many as 33 virus mutations in just 11 coronavirus patients they examined in the city of Hangzhou.

The researchers say that 60 percent of the strains they discovered turned out to be entirely new. In a worrying development, they also discovered that the virus’s mutations directly affect its deadliness. Their research revealed that the most aggressive type of Covid-19 could create a virus load 270 times greater than the least potent one.

Most importantly, though, the scientists say their discoveries could affect the development of the much-needed vaccine, because a one-size-fits-all solution might not work in case of Covid-19.

Many Thanks for that. Appreciated! :thumbup:

I am on one of the most powerful blood thinners to have been developed recently.
So that news directly effects me.

Nice to know that at least some of the meds would work in my favor should I catch this damn thing...

Cheers,
Matt

Glad I was able to give you a ray of sunshine. Most Dr's are prescribing thinners for everyone at the onset with admittance to a hospital now. They're horrified how many deaths may have been averted had they known this before. Have a great day, Matt,

U.S. DIPLOMATIC MISSION TO CANADA

Message to U.S. Citizens in Canada:  Recent COVID-19 Developments in Canada

April 21, 2020

Location:  Canada 

Event: Recent COVID-19 Developments in Canada

Information:

Border Restrictions Extended


The U.S. and Canadian governments agreed to extend cross-border travel restrictions to non-essential travel for an additional 30 days from April 21. Non-essential travel includes tourism, recreation, and entertainment. Essential travel still permitted includes: work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care, and safety and security. Land borders are operating at reduced capacity and with limited hours. Travellers entering Canada must present a credible 14-day quarantine plan. Visit CBP and CBSA for details.

Face Coverings on Flights

All passengers on flights departing or arriving at Canadian airports are now required to wear a non-medical mask or face covering that covers their mouth and nose. Face coverings are required at all screening checkpoints, when physical distance cannot be maintained, and as directed by a public health official. Check the Canadian Government's COVID-19 travel restrictions and exemptions page for additional information. Note: Canadian authorities continue to ask the public to reserve medical masks for healthcare workers and first responders.

Protect Yourself from Fraud


The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre warns of an increase in fraudulent actors seeking to exploit businesses, individuals, and institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Schemes include email phishing, fake telephone calls for assistance, and unproven treatments to “cure” COVID-19. Please contact local police if you think you are a victim of a fraud scheme. Visit the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre for more information. You can also visit the FBI’s COVID-19 page for fraud prevention information.

We are giving up our freedoms in the fight against COVID-19. The question is will we get them back?

Does freedom – a true freedom of strong precepts rather than meaningless platitudes – interfere with what we must do to survive? And, if it does, how much freedom will we surrender to remain alive, free from disease, adequately fed and suitably housed? All of it? Some of it? None of it?
