Coronavirus Epidemic

Recommended Posts

I wish Trump would wear a mask.  Not to protect him and others from Covid-19, but to cover that ugly raccoon-eyed mug of his. 

He should consider touching up those white circles around his eyes (obviously from the goggles he wears while getting his spray cheese "tan" applied) with some of the cheez-whiz  he gets sprayed over the rest of him.  ;)

'Go straight home': B.C. premier concerned Americans abusing border exemption

VANCOUVER -- Reports that U.S. residents are vacationing in British Columbia as their country's COVID-19 crisis spirals out of control are concerning, Premier John Horgan said Thursday.

Horgan said he's heard stories from MLAs and community leaders from across B.C. about Americans who appear to be abusing the current border crossing exemption designed to let Alaska residents enter Canada if they're trying to get home.

"Health-care workers have put themselves at risk to protect all of us and we do not want to throw that away for queue jumpers, for people who want to say they're going somewhere and do something else," Horgan said. "If you want to get to Alaska, we do not want to impede, but you should go directly."

Some of the concerns have come from Metro Vancouver, where people have reported seeing Washington state licence plates at popular tourist attractions, including the Grouse Grind.

Horgan said he's heard similar reports from his own riding on the west coast of Vancouver Island as well.

"I was speaking with the local chief of the Pacheedaht (First Nation), and he tells me there was a licence plate from Texas and a licence plate from California at the Port Renfrew general store," Horgan said. "If you're heading to Alaska, you don't go through Port Renfrew."

To some B.C. residents, the concerns are particularly pressing given the failure of U.S. officials in combating the pandemic. On Wednesday, months into the country's response, the U.S. set a new record for confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 50,203 infections in a single day.

Millions of Americans have caught the virus since the start of the pandemic, and more than 128,000 of them have died.

Horgan said he believes Alaska residents should be allowed entry to return to the state, but stressed that they should avoid sight-seeing and detours during the journey.

"If you're going home you should go straight home, you shouldn't be stopping along the way to enjoy the sights and sounds of British Columbia," the premier added.

"Do not pass Go, go directly to Alaska."

Asked about the concerns on Thursday, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry stressed that the reports should not be blown out of proportion.

She said that after speaking with the Canada Border Services Agency, she feels confident that "the majority of people with U.S. licence plates who are in B.C. are Canadians" who were living in America and returned home to Canada during the pandemic.

"We have seen individual reports of people who are using that 'Alaska loophome,' if you will, but I understand as well that they are very small in number," Henry said.

"Have some compassion, and be calm … recognizing that we might not understand everybody's situation."

But given how easily outbreaks can spread, and the situation right next door in Washington state – which has seen about 11 times more COVID-19 cases than B.C. – the apparent rule-breaking was a big enough issue for Horgan to raise it with Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland.

The premier said he's hopeful Freeland will take B.C. residents' concerns up with U.S. State Department officials.

He's also counting on the federal government to keep the border closed for non-essential travel until the risks of reopening are addressed. The current restrictions are set to stay in place until July 21 at the earliest.

"Our borders need to remain closed until the United States demonstrates that they have a handle on this pandemic," Horgan said. "It's so critically important to British Columbia. We have worked very, very hard to get here."

A washed-up lying New York City realtor,

As great as Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx are, it doesn't matter if trump censors them or not.

 Because there are a number of brilliant American medical doctors who can inform us about the covid-19 pandemic on the legitimate mainstream media.

What's important is that people listen to the medical community and respond positively to health officials in their own states and counties. These are the people who are in direct contact with their local situation. When they give you advice and you don't heed that advice you may well live to regret it, one day.

Soon there will be a vaccine from the Trump administration for covid-19 that the WH will want all true supporters to take.  It only says "covid-19" vaccine but in reality it is a vaccine that will protect you from mind control by Bill Gates and George Soros.  So when the "covid-19" vaccine comes out all supporters should (wink wink) take it.

Bolsonaro's COVID-19 diagnosis brings new uncertainty to Brazil

 
Bolsonaro's COVID-19 diagnosis brings new uncertainty to Brazil

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's announcement Tuesday that he tested positive for COVID-19 raised further doubts about the South American giant's ability to cope with the pandemic as the country grapples with a rising death toll.

Bolsonaro, one of the world's most prominent coronavirus deniers, became symptomatic after attending a Fourth of July lunch.....

........}Let’s be cautious with people who are older and have comorbidities. And for people who are younger, if you get the virus, stay calm. Because for you, the chance of it being more grave is practically zero,” Bolsonaro told reporters.

Bolsonaro's continued minimization of the disease signals business as usual for a country with more than 1.6 million confirmed cases and more than 66,000 deaths.......

The University of Washington now projects at least 208,255 will die in the U.S. from the coronavirus by November 1.
 
But if 95% of the population wears a mask in public, the projected death toll would drop to 162,808. That's more than 45,000 people saved.

These are truly 2 pathetic individuals.

With a highly contagious pandemic out of control in their states, cases at an all-time high, Hospital ICU's fully loaded, with more High death tolls surely to follow--

These 2 don't know whether they should follow--

trump's I don't give a damn how many people die if it's good for my political future policy--

or the prudent policy outlined by the CDC, Dr Fauci and the entire American Medical Community.

I can just imagine that in the future voters will remember these kind of "public servants" and think more profoundly about their votes,

as if

their very lives depended upon it.
