    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    We have a small local company in Victoria making masks. They have been making reusable masks contact details here. Shipping done via Canada post. I have one of their prototypes that was given to me to show customers at work. Made of very strong fabric with a reusable filter. ~$10CDN each...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Actually I can second this! the results quoted by Paul above in the French study were the ones cited on live TV by our health minister and top doctor Dr.Theresa Tam. This is one of the main reasons why our top doctor has strongly recommended against the combo drug therapy as the potential...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Here is some food for thought - reinfections and other issues related to Wuhan epicentre. The beginning of an upheaval in China against the CCP. 7BedoUWuFJo A little something on my mind, 1) the decision to divert N95 masks internationally (3M) sparked a great discussion today in our...

    To which comment are you referring to Paul? What do you think about the reports that a secondary infection may be brewing in Asia? https://www.ibtimes.sg/first-case-encephalitis-reported-coronavirus-patient-doctors-suggest-link-between-brain-disease-42256

    I'll second this as no one has immunity to this Virus. There is also signs that a secondary virus may be emerging in Asia that seems to re-infect survivors. Both ROK and PRC are reporting secondary re-infections.

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Already volunteering to be patrolling in my apt for any signs of COVID19. I have put bulletins out for information where to get masks without jeopardizing the medical supply. I had a COVID 19 team come to the apt for testing of one senior citizen. Result was a false positive. This virus...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    I can't agree more with the video you posted. We had been given the same information by BCCD and Canadian Government. They seemed to be more preoccupied with making sure everything seemed normal - you are safe (no problem here)-- which gave people a very false sense of security. This however...

    perhaps it could also be a this, average age, population density and a combination of smoking as well combined. a) Quebec has the second highest consumer of tobacco after Newfoundland & labrador and PEI. b) Quebec also averages higher than any other province in age as well. c) *The...

    You can get UVC bulbs from Philips in just about any size of fluorescent tube. T5 and T8 are quite common. $15-$28 each typically. They generate a significant amount of ozone and Nozone (NOx) as one would expect. At home I have a 400W UVC quartz lamp which has a remote timer. It is from...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Yes, we have been testing like crazy and practicing social distancing. The problem is not enough front line staff. We have a critical shortage of doctors and nurses. Too expensive here to go to medical school and there is 0 incentives to do so. Nobody wants a $180-200,000 student loan.

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Again, that's what has been reported so far. Error in reporting is no doubt high as the situation is so fluid. Today we have the highest single day increase in BC thus far--- 96 confirmed cases in one day.

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    2 big contributing factors to the high mortality rate in Italy seems to be linked to the rates of smoking ( esp. in the South) and how people greet each other. Combine this with a large +65 population and you've got a perfect storm. France is also having an equally rough time with the illness...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    I think I am just going to request this thread to be locked. Very little useful info being shared here. I had requested people share their experiences with COVID-19 in their communities and what is being done. Ideas for sanitizers, homemade ethanol, UVC sterilizers, etc ... Maybe I am a naive...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    The rest of the outbreak is most certainly community driven... that I totally agree with. The initial case or ground zero is Seattle-Tacoma on January 15th. We were also notified of this case as patient 1 might have come through Vancouver Intl. Airport. ( this later turned out to be false) A...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    From what I have heard, patient #1 traveled from Wuhan, China to Sea-Tac International Airport on January 15 via a non-direct route. He noticed symptoms after he had returned from a trip and reached out to doctors on Jan. 19 to test for the virus. By the time he reached out to medical...

    Wow, both of you want to argue politics when your fellow countrymen are dying. This petty bickering is why nothing in the US will ever get solved because the entire country is polarized blue vs red / asses vs elephants. Please, I beg you put your political differences aside and work...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Sounds interesting. I sure hope those infection numbers start to plateau soon. I really don't want to see an Italy 2.0 situation in the US or here in Canada. Thinking about what will happen in the next week to 2 weeks. Kinda scary.

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Please share your stories about where you live and how people are coping with the virus. Here we have probably 60 or so cases in Victoria.... not sure. Mainland has over 600 cases thus far. I am thinking this number is likely to quadruple in the next 2 days. We are under a mandatory 2m...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    I guess that's where my confusion is still, hydroxychloroquine is NOT approved at all for use for COVID-19 by the CDC and our own top doctor has even clearly stated that on National TV just a few moments ago. No doctor worth their salt would prescribe it, violating the CDC's own recommendation...
