I’ve lost a lot of faith and trust in the leadership of this country. This whole situation has been handled piss-poorly since Day 1 and things are going to get ugly before they start to improve.
my wife called this from the get go. Canada's leadership once again unwilling to make any hard line moves that could be perceived as rocking the boat and upsetting anyone over taking necessary precautions to protect ourselves. Everyday Canadians are still not taking this seriously. My wife, mother and I were the only ones on the plane home last night from Liberia, Costa Rica to Calgary that were wearing a face mask out of a couple hundred people. People were hacking and sneezing away the whole time unconcerned about spreading germs or catching anything. I am very interested and concerned about what new safety protocols we will have in place when I return to my work on Saturday as a first responder.

I was informed yesterday by my client that they are anticipating delays in construction. Depending on how this plays out over the next week all contractors and employees on site could be asked to stay home.

The UK has moved to the second "Delay" stage of their plan. But they also shared a key piece of data: the number of official cases is likely as little as 6% to 12% of the total ACTUAL number of cases (a ratio they believe holds in other countries too). Here's the quote:

"There are currently 590 cases that have been identified in the UK, and there are more than 20 patients on intensive care units. If you calculate what that really means, in terms of the total number, it's much more likely that we've got somewhere between 5 and 10 thousand people infected at the moment. We've identified 590, the same sorts of ratios will hold true in other countries depending on how much testing they've done."

There’s no fucking way I’m taking their vaccinations from the power that nought. Give me the fucking virus, and I’ll live. I’m getting tired of these scare tactics from the media and government. They want to lock us down and take away civil liberties from a fucking chest cold. We live in a society of pansy ass bitches and sheep.
Yeah vaccinations are horrible. Polio, small pox, TB etc. Little old things that shouldve been left to run wild in humanity

Pound your chest all you want but it's not a chest cold, it's a viral pnuemonia with power to OVERWHELM our health care system. That's the true danger

Listen I distrust the government more than most ( devout libertarian and prepper) but the viral experts and scienstists' opinions on this trump bravado. I'm listening to them NOT the government. Don't get it twisted. Our government can go fuck themselves.

A friend of mine spoke to a leading disease specialist who said that this is not going to go away, its here to stay, it will die down a bit for summer, but will be back in the fall and so on. The spread is too large to contain.

Also - this isn't the only disease that will be coming our way, the Dr for saw many potentially dying form other similar diseases.
No one knows that yet. This is a fluid situation
Opinions and theories from the renowned experts I've been listening to vary but most lend themselves to A- implementing an antiviral to treat this first, and B- a very possible vaccination

Taiwan and South Korea halted the spread with early nationwide testing and aggressive non politically correct travel restrictions and bans.
We missed the boat by about 6 weeks thanks to gutless woke king blackface

The following information has been shared by a large Canadian employer, to its employees:

The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late. Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection.

In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous.

Important information about the virus:

1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold.

2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.

4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.

6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.

7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.

8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.

9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.

10. Can't emphasis enough - drink plenty of water!

The Symptoms:

1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days.

2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.

3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.

4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.

I do appreciate your distrust of the government though LOL
Think it brings a very valid point that the citizens of the world should ponder abit. Its an eye opener what the world powers can do in a very short time , whether valid or not to restrict/contain/control/also manage the narrative of news n info of its populations 🤔

For the most part China gets am F . I dont see so much hiding info from other nations just waay behind the ball in control and wrongly addressed messures in most cases ( not Russia)

I’m just gonna put this out there (most probably is nothing )

Vaguely... i was apart of a conversation this evening. One of the men (who i dont know well) said (hes a bigwig in oil n gas)

“ within the next 72 hours there’s gonna be some shit going down (edit: announcement) going to affect every household in Canada”

Thats it...I wanted to grill him for more info after but no chance. It was the way he said it/demeanour that perked me up from tin-foil hat stuff , its like he new something.

Anyway no fear bullshit just wanted to throw out here and see if any major government or oil-patch Announcements happen next 3 days 🤷🏻

Trudeau is saying he still not going to get tested because he’s not showing symptoms...

The only thing on his mind is the implications of what would happen if he did get it and how he can control the ‘narrative’
