UPDATE 3-24-20

     This comment in from barryinwinnipeg:
     OMG, your president states that he now wants the economy open for business by Easter! I am flabbergasted beyond words! As seniors, my wife and I are living in virtual house arrest, which is okay, and it’s the earliest I’ve ever filed my Canadian and US tax returns, Tand my Daughter and Son-in-law are working from home, while my Son, an essential City of Winnipeg employee, is trying to get an upgraded computer so that he can work from home (he is immuno compromised), all to help flatten the curve on this outbreak, and here in Manitoba we have, so far, had only twenty confirmed cases! And your Dear Leader wants to get everyone back in the line of fire within two or three weeks, just as this outbreak is starting to surge! As a retired clergyman, I’m not given to profanity on posts, but…if I were… (fill it in here)!

KNOW YOUR FACTS

         Um, to the person who sent in the below comment: If you have paid attention to the news at all for the last week, the medical professionals are stating that if you don’t have current symptoms or respiratory distress, they recommend you do not get tested. Others need it and it uses masks and other medical devices that are desperately needed by the medical community.
     I have not left my house for 10 days and do not plan to leave it for another five days. I very much doubt I have “infected hundreds  of other people.” Find something real to complain about.
 
     “I see no reason to get tested at this point”. Um because the virus can live up to two weeks. If you really did/do have it, you could have infected hundreds if other people. But what the hell. As long as you’re feeling better that’s all that matters.

LITTLE IS OPEN

     LNP has had this at the top of their home page for a week now. Maybe they should change this to “What’s Open?” Not much.
Please check back later today.

    As a person who hopes to have an informed opinion I find it impossible to be informed when testing of everyone who displays suspect symptoms isn’t being done. We can’t know where actual clusters are or percentages of the total infected verses the percent of those who require hospitalization and or intubation. Without that how can anyone develop an informed strategy and compare the cost effectiveness of any plan. I’m Not saying cost should inform every decision I’m saying resources have to be used effectively.

      It’s called optimism Barry. Our President said he would love to have this over for Easter. Our faith, our optimism and our sacrifices got us through a few wars, TMI, 9/11, other epidemics, a myriad of disasters. For a retired clergyman your faith seems to be lacking.

    To the author of that email to you. Good luck on getting tested. We’ve been told to self quarantine if symptoms occur but you can breathe without too much difficulty. The tests take four days and by then you’re either better or dead.

    What we NEED is available. What we WANT is temporarily limited. A good time for some introspection perhaps.
