    Canada’s increasing new cases by the minute already reaching over 5,000 cases already. That son of b Doug Ford is killing us since we nearly lack health care professionals and already a few of them died from that damned virus. And Trump made everybody so made about he ordered everybody to go to church on Easter, I mean what’s he trying to do? Kill everybody?

    Well the only thing Trump cares about is money and pleasing the ignorant masses who swallow everything he says, no matter how insane, so I wouldn't be surprised.

    Every government is like that, always leeching people off and braking countless promises. Speaking of, PM Boris Johnson got positive for the virus and PM Justin Trudeau’s wife made a recovery.

    Default A Cat In Belgium Tested Positive For COVID-19, But You Shouldn't Panic

    Health officials in Belgium say a pet cat appears to have contracted COVID-19 from her owner, though they emphasized human-to-pet transmission seems to be extremely rare.

    “Recently, the veterinary medicine faculty in Liège reported that a coronavirus infection has been determined in a cat,” virologist Steven Van Gucht said at a Federal Public Service Health press conference on Friday, The Brussels Times reported. “The cat lived with her owner, who started showing symptoms of the virus a week before the cat did.”

    The cat had diarrhea and breathing trouble, and researchers subsequently found the novel coronavirus in her feces. As of Saturday, both cat and owner were reportedly doing well.

    “We want to stress that this is an isolated case,” Van Gucht said. “Additionally, in this case, we are talking about a human-to-animal transmission, not the other way around. There are no indications that this is common. The risk of animal-to-human transmission is very small.”
    Those sentiments were echoed by Jane Sykes, chief veterinary medical officer at the University of California, Davis. Cats and dogs, she said, may be “dead-end” hosts for the virus, meaning they could become infected but don’t shed enough of the virus to transmit it to humans other animals.

    So far, there are no known cases of pets transmitting the virus to people, but there’s not enough data to tell for sure if that’s possible. But generally, “you’re more likely to get infected from another person,” Sykes told HuffPost.

    Previously, two dogs in Hong Kong tested positive for the virus and were asymptomatic. At least one of those dogs tested “weakly positive,” leading some experts to believe the dog could be merely carrying traces of the virus in its nose or fur, rather than being truly infected. But Sykes said the levels of virus found in the cat, plus the cat’s symptoms, suggest true infection, but noted that further tests ― like checking to see whether the cat has developed antibodies for the virus ― are needed.
    “It’s not really very surprising to hear of an infected cat,” she said, explaining that cats and ferrets were able to contract the similar virus that caused the SARS outbreak in the early 2000s. But there was no evidence of cats transmitting that virus to humans. (She also noted that ferrets became much sicker from the virus than cats did.)

    That said, the case of the Belgian cat means pet owners and veterinarians should be on the lookout for any possible symptoms consistent with COVID-19 in cats, dogs and other mammals (especially ferrets), Sykes said. And pet owners who have the illness should take precautions to minimize any risks.

    Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Veterinary Medical Association recommend having another person in your household care for your pets if you are sick with COVID-19, if possible. If that’s not possible, wash your hands before and after interacting with pets; regularly wash their bowls, bedding and toys; and wear a face mask if you can.

    If a pet has come into contact with an infected person and you’re worried about exposure from the virus surviving on the animal’s fur, some experts suggest bathing pets with species-appropriate shampoo or wiping them down with soapy cloth and water.

    Sykes also stressed the importance of the “human-animal bond” and noted that no one should abandon or euthanize their pets out of fears over COVID-19. And she continues to see it as a good thing that so many people are spending their extra time at home with animal companions.

    “That would still be strongly encouraged,” she said.

    It is. that's why it important to stay in the house, wash your hands, and do all the rules they telling us. the more and more we follow the rules. the more this virus can do it's course. some people has recover some good news for that. sadly people has die. but it wasn't their fault for some. if people stay in the house. then less people will get it.

    some people are just stupid. either they stupid or just trying to kill themselves. i don't like this virus but i'm not gonna go outside because i want to knowing i can die from it.

    i seriously don't get people. some people are just dumb. this virus has and still is teaching me a lot.

    Well there are more numbers of people recovering from the virus than the number of people dying from it which is good, but sad at the same time. Even people whom are carriers themselves tend to lie to people about where they traveled and don’t even care, like the one my mom told me about an individual in my hometown who just returned home from a trip abroad and he lied repeatedly and walking amuck to infect everybody.

    But here’s something to bright everybody up.

    Unhappy US braces for staggering virus death toll

    Americans were told Tuesday to brace for “very painful” weeks ahead in a worsening coronavirus pandemic projected to claim up to a quarter million US lives, as fatalities spiked in European hotspots Spain, France and Britain.

    With more than 42,100 already killed by the disease barrelling around the globe, the United States registered a record 865 deaths in 24 hours — taking its death toll to 3,873.

    As field hospitals sprouted in the US outbreak’s epicenter New York City, Trump said he was extending social distancing and stay-at-home orders for another 30 days

    “This is going to be a very painful — a very, very painful — two weeks,” the president said at the White House as he described the pandemic as “a plague.”

    “I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead.”

    In a matter of months, the virus has infected more than 857,000 people in a crisis hammering the global economy and transforming the daily existence of some 3.6 billion people told to stay home under lockdowns.

    Deaths shot up again across Europe. While there are hopeful signs that the spread of infections is slowing in hardest-hit Italy and Spain, more than 800 died overnight in both countries.


    France recorded a one-day record of 499 dead while Britain reported 381 coronavirus deaths.

    But members of Trump’s coronavirus task force offered a grim forecast of between 100,000 and 240,000 US deaths in coming months, taking into account current mitigation efforts.

    “As sobering a number as that is, we should be prepared for it,” Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said with Trump at his side when asked about the lower figure of 100,000.


    But Fauci said mitigation was “actually working” and that authorities are doing everything they can to get the death toll “significantly below that.”

    With hospitals direly overstretched, lockdowns have been extended despite their crushing economic impact.


    In Belgium a 12-year-old girl died in another worrying case of a youth succumbing to the disease.

    France joined the US with a surge to 3,525 deaths, an official toll that includes only those who died in hospital and not those who perished at home or in seniors’ homes.

    The inundation of patients has sent health facilities worldwide into overdrive.

    Emergency hospitals are popping up in event spaces while distressed medical staff make grim decisions about how to distribute limited protective gear, beds and life-saving respirators.

    In scenes previously unimaginable in peacetime, around a dozen white tents were erected to serve as a field hospital in New York’s Central Park.

    While many companies and schools around the globe have shifted to teleworking and teaching over video platforms, huge swaths of the world’s workforce cannot perform their jobs online and are now lacking pay and face a deeply uncertain future.

    Food banks in New York City have seen a huge rise in newcomers struggling to feed their families.


    “It is my first time,” Lina Alba, a cleaner at a Manhattan hotel that closed two weeks ago, said from a food distribution center.
    “We need the help now. This is crazy,” said Alba, a 40-year-old single mother of five.

    Three quarters of Americans are now under some form of lockdown, while off the Florida coast a coronavirus-stricken cruise ship and its sister vessel are pleading for somewhere to dock after four passengers died on board.

    The extraordinary economic and political upheaval spurred by the virus is opening new fronts for cooperation and conflict.

    In virtual talks Tuesday, finance ministers and central bankers from the world’s 20 major economies pledged to address the debt burden of low-income countries and deliver aid to emerging markets

    Last week G20 leaders said they were injecting $5 trillion into the global economy to head off a feared deep recession.

    In the European Union, however, battle lines have been drawn over the terms of a rescue plan.

    Worst-hit Italy and Spain are leading a push for a shared debt instrument — dubbed “coronabonds.”

    But talk of shared debt is a red line for Germany and other northern countries, threatening to divide the bloc.


    European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen also warned against using emergency measures as a pretext for power grabs — after a new law gave Hungary’s nationalist leader Viktor Orban authority to rule by decree until his government deems the crisis over.

    The economic pain of lockdowns is especially acute in the developing world.

    In Tunisia several hundred protested a week-old lockdown that has disproportionately impacted the poor.

    “Nevermind coronavirus, we’re going to die anyway! Let us work!” shouted one protester in the demonstration on the outskirts of the capital Tunis.


    Africa’s biggest city Lagos entered its first full day of a two-week shutdown — containment will be especially tough in the megacity’s packed slums, where many rely on daily wages to survive.

    “There is no money for the citizens,” engineer Ogun Nubi Victor, 60.

    “People are just sitting at home, with nothing to eat.”

    While much of the world shuts down, the ground-zero Chinese city of Wuhan has begun reawakening in recent days, giving the bereaved the first chance in months to bury their dead.

    Talking 98-year old Iranian lady recovers from coronavirus

    A 98-year old lady Mrs Hassanzadeh from Mashhad, northeastern Iran, defeated the potentially deadly coronavirus after 27 days of medical treatment.

    Shapour Badiee, MD, told Media that the almost centennial woman was hospitalized on March 5 after she was diagnosed with coronavirus.

    Saeedeh Hassanzahed, her daughter, told that Ms. Hassanzedeh had chronicle kidney complications, but the virus had not hurt her kidneys.

    Thanking God, she added that with the “indefatigable” efforts of the medical staff of Imam Reza Hospital in Mashhad, her mother defeated the virus and was discharged from hospital.

    Default China starts to report asymptomatic coronavirus cases

    BEIJING, April 1 (Reuters) - Chinese health authorities began on Wednesday reporting on asymptomatic cases of the coronavirus as part of an effort to allay public fears that people could be spreading the virus without knowing they are infected with it.
    China, where the coronavirus emerged late last year, has managed to bring its outbreak under control and is easing travel restrictions in virus hot spots.

    But there are concerns that the end of lockdowns will see thousands of infectious people move back into daily life without knowing they carry the virus, because they have no symptoms and so have not been tested.
    Up to now, the number of known asymptomatic cases has been classified, and it is not included in the official data, though the South China Morning Post newspaper, citing unpublished official documents, recently said it was more than 40,000.

    In an effort to dispel public fears about hidden cases of the virus, the government has this week ordered health authorities to turn their attention to finding asymptomatic cases and releasing their data on them.
    Health authorities in Liaoning province were the fist to do so on Wednesday, saying the province had 52 cases of people with the coronavirus who showed no symptoms as of March 31, they said in a statement on a provincial government website.
    Hunan province said it had four such cases, all of them imported from abroad, it said in a statement on its website.
    The National Health Commission is due to start reporting aggregate, national data on asymptomatic cases later on Wednesday.

    There is debate among experts about how infectious asymptomatic cases are but the commission has said all cases would be centrally quarantined for 14 days. It said 1,541 people with asymptomatic coronavirus infections were under observation as of the end of Monday.

    Thumbs up Letter: Lessons of coronavirus will improve preparedness

    I am a firm believer that everything is a double-sided coin; good on one side and bad on the other. If something is bad, it can only get better. If something is good, we should remind ourselves that too much of a good thing can be bad.

    In looking at this period, the coronavirus is bad but there will be good things that come from experiencing it.

    Even though disasters in this country do not touch all of us, this will change our perspective everywhere. One of the good things is that people will really understand why we have been warned to save a six-months’ bank account for emergencies — and what an emergency really is.

    Closing the borders should cut down on drug trafficking and save lives. Many families will profit from the forced time together. Although some businesses will vanish, others will spring up, just like Battelle’s mask-cleaning invention. Some workers may revaluate the possibility of working from home.

    It will be a while before everything is back to normal and for some this experience will change their normal. It is a good time to reevaluate our lifestyles as we realize what is really important to us.

    I just want to say that teddy Riley posts has been very very uplifting, and inspiring to me and hopeful as we all go through this . He is over at Instagram . His posts , each one are valuable ,I really appreciated the health information. Look forward to jamming with you Teddy tomorrow whilst we are all in isolation .
    If you are on Instagram and need uplifting genuine posts, Request friendship there if you do get the chance people.

    I am a child of the Moon , Being raised by the Sun, In an earth filled with Pain , With a sky full of Hope.

    RIP Dearest M. Thank You For My Childhood Memories. ILY.
