Mid of March 2020
As we head into the middle of March, Southern Ontario is in the midst of the warm spell with temperatures in the mid-teens Celsius. Whatever snow we had, is almost all gone. Hopefully, this is a prelude to early spring in Southern Ontario and throughout Canada.
What we thought was a few isolated cases of the Coronavirus in China, it has now gathered steam rather quickly. With millions in quarantine in Iran and Italy and around the world, this virus is something that we must take very seriously. Global markets are taking a beating. The price of oil has plummeted. Prime and Mortgage rates are dropping and travel plans have come to a standstill. Sporting events in Europe are being played in front of empty stadiums. Access to sport’s teams dressing rooms has been cut off to all media. All-access to athletes are being relegated to a designated meeting area. Any and all contact with Humans either thru Handshakes or fist pumps are a thing of the past. It seems the only way of acknowledging someone is either thru a bow or elbow taps.
What can be done? No matter how responsible you are, you just don’t know what the person beside you has or is going thru. You don’t know where they have come from or who they have been in contact with. Experts say that masks won’t stop the spread of the virus. They recommend washing your hands with soap and water as often as possible and use hand sanitizer after coming in contact with door handles, shopping carts, travel seats, tabletops, etc. Canada has just reported its first death attributed to the Coronavirus in BC. I’m sure more are on the way.
Thru extra caution and extreme care, hopefully, this deadly virus does not get any worse before we see some light at the end of the tunnel.
