yo im currently self-isolating after speaking to NHS-111. Not confirmed yet though, not been tested. Just holed up in my nerd cave getting groceries dropped at my doorstep and videogaming.

Had a pretty bad fever to start, a cough and a bit of conjunctivitis. I'm not feeling too bad though, more of a bad cold/moderate flu so (if I've got it) I think I'm one of the luckier ones. Hasn't got better yet but I'm only 5 days in, hopefully won't get any worse. Plenty of time to finish binging Better Call Saul. Anyone got any netflix recommendations?

My day didn’t go well. I went to check in with a job I was shooting for, they ended up postponing all new hires for 4 weeks because of this. A few hours later I got a call from my mom because she was super sick, my dad works all day and so I went and grabbed here and tried taking her to my local hospital only to find out it was closed off due to the virus. Had to take her to urgent care and I’ve been house sitting for the last 5 hours for them. So yea, this has been a problem. I’m going to be late on all my freelance shit, but I can’t even be worried about work, idk what’s even wrong with my mom, I couldn’t even get her in a hospital, she probably has something worse going on, she said her head felt like someone was beating it against a wall. If it’s cancer... if it’s something, some off the wall bullshit... idk I couldn’t even get here in the hospital

My school cancelled classes for no reason today. I live in.... guess where: South Dakota. Literrrrally insane lol foreal. Honestly mr. seven1 is right \\. My Catholic spidey-sense is tingling. The moment death becomes a possibility, people freak out. The moment people can't make themselves autistic by taking a vaccine made with aborted-fetus stem cells, they freak out. If you're really that scared, or if you do have family members who are at actual risk, pray. Build your contrition. Get baptized if you haven't been already. Receive the Sacrament of Penance from a valid priest. Do your penance, and fear death no longer.

what?

one of the lowest infection rates per capita of any first world country currently. we were one of the first countries to start testing. already exploring shutting down border. international flights are already being limited. $10 billion stimulus package for businesses announced today, direct inconvenience payments to affected citizens likely announced tomorrow. guarantee that people wont be screwed with rent, groceries, bills etc.

already $500m addition funding for healthcare system, $100m for testing, $50m to push travel and hand washing messages, $50m to WHO.

not to mention canadian researchers were the first to isolate the virus and are also first to be testing a treatment/vaccine. gov has been making sure adequate funding is being provided to these efforts.

the only reason they think the infection rate is low is because they refuse testing for anybody who hasn't been to (short list of high risk countries)

no travel restrictions
virtually no testing
our hospitals are on the verge of overwhelmed as standard operating procedure

sorry but you're in for a nasty surprise

edit to add a few points for anybody who isn't taking this seriously still - even following the official numbers, which is reasonable here since Italy had poor testing as well, Canada is on track for the exact same growth pattern as Italy. We are just 2 or 3 weeks behind them. It's really hard for the average person to visualize the number of cases DOUBLING every 2-4 days, which is what an R0 of 6-7 gives you.

https://i.imgur.com/dDO2PsT.jpg

Recall that Wuhan Virus is so contagious that over 70 people at a conference of 175 attendees total in Boston got infected. Meanwhile in Canada we have had confirmed cases who attended a dental conference in BC and a mining conference in Toronto, both with 5-figure attendance lists (edit2: a guy in Edmonton is now confirmed to have caught it at that dental conference)

Recall that certain countries are reporting up to 20% of cases need ICU care/mechanical respiration. Look how few hospital beds Canada has per capita.

This is all made worse by the fact that the Canadian govt & state media are still telling massive lies like "masks don't protect you or prevent spread" and "you are only contagious when you have symptoms." Stay safe everybody, if you have the means you should definitely work from home, stock up on food and supplies (should have a month ago lol), and avoid public gatherings of any kind

No cases where I live, but we had a county wide-meeting via teleconference and our hospital already reported that they're overwhelmed due to people erring on the side of caution and calling in.

We have to run these "simulations" we call Godzilla meetings every month as part of county government. About 2 years ago we had "virulent flu" as one of our issues - every single hospital employee and their families all died and we received a failing grade from the state. Hopefully the lessons we learned from that get put to good use.

lootthe only reason they think the infection rate is low is because they refuse testing for anybody who hasn't been to (short list of high risk countries)

simply not true. they are testing anyone with respiratory symptoms, people who have been in contact with a confirmed case, and those who have mild symptoms who have recently traveled internationally. testing criteria will likely lighten in the coming days.

lootno travel restrictions

International flights will only be permitted to land at a smaller number of airports.
Boats and cruise ships carrying more than 500 people will be banned from docking at Canadian ports until July.
All travellers arriving in Canada from international points are being asked to consider self-isolating for 14 days as a precaution. People arriving from Hubei, China, Iran and Italy already have been asked to self-isolate.
Enhanced screening measures at airports as well as marine, land and rail points of entry (source). likely straight up bans announced sometime today or tomorrow

lootvirtually no testing

blatant lie, there is widespread testing available across the country

obviously there will continue to be exponential growth and this likely wont be stopped globally, but as of right now the canadian government has been very diligent and reactive to the current situation. a key figure that tells a big story that you've overlooked is the # of infected per 1M people. canada currently ranks extremely low in this statistic. also canadians are big travelers especially in the winter months and we have huge chinese, iranian, and italian populations.
i think you're vastly overestimating what other countries around the world are doing to try and curb this. at the end of the day theres a solid chance this virus wont be stopped and becomes widespread. at the very least the canadian gov has guaranteed rent, food, and bills support. barely any countries have committed to this.

811 is for redirecting and referring patients to testing locations. hospitals and pop up testing stations do the testing, if you show up or call ahead stating respiratory symptoms you are tested for COVID-19. the government can’t force foreign nationals into quarantine. travel ban will likely be necessary.

Reminder don't eat bats unless you're Ozzy Osbourne or you're putting old and weak people who have probably lived too long already at risk.

Also if you're healthy it's just a flu with a cough and a sore throat and you'll be fine. If you're healthy and die from it nature didn't want you to exist anyway.
