We were going to take a walk in our neighborhood today and knowing that the experts say that someone's cough can linger in the air for three hours caused us to re-think going for a walk; we will walk the perimeter of our back yard (it's big) and stay in our little area.

Such tragic news from Belgium regarding the nursing homes and the loss of a 32 yr old that worked in the local market.
Racerbruce:the toll for today is 621 over here and 5 BUS workers have died.That's down on what it was yesterday but dreading as we get closer to the so called peak..me and wife keeping fit on the treadmill with a good soak and water massage in the tub afterwards.3 kms in late morning then another 3 around 4pm.

Well done M5!!!! Love your dedication and commitment to keep it healthy during this time. So sorry to hear of the losses; there have been Seattle area public transit bus drivers who have died from the virus.

Now that's the way to end the day!

We have begun a weekly FaceTime call with our daughters on Sundays at 4 pm (starts in 10 min) and it's an early afternoon "cocktail hour" so I just made two Martinis (mine is dirty with 4 huge green Spanish stuffed olives)

Nowhere is the virus more deadly than in Spain .

Indeed my friend . I saw it on the Coronavirus Update => https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries

According the latest :
Virus outbrake in India ( In Dharavi near by Mumbai ) => https://www.hln.be/nieuws/buitenland...dden~a915916a/
As you can see , it's a slum with more than a million people !
Local people said : Only God can save us ...

Just back from Costco with the wife from doing our Easter shopping,we just walked in with not many people and got what we wanted to not go again for quite a while, even plenty of lavatory paper (limited to one pack of 24 rolls) queued for 5-6 minutes in the 2 metre gap line and checked out.
When we came out there was already a queue of about 30 people lining up distancing themselves outside the store being held until the entrance attendant would let them in.

Probably a ventilator is required in his situation .
Sounds bad my friend !

Side note : Yesterday evening I watched a documentary about "SARS-Cov-2". That's what COVID-19 actually is ...
It has 80% of the SARS genome !

I heard only bad news from the documentary . The global situation looks not good for "ALL"" of us !
Worst case scenario was : The killer virus continues to infect us . If one individual remains with the virus . Everything will start all over again ...
Till a vaccin is found......That works effectively without side effects !
Not good my friend . Not good !

For sure I think Boris is on ventilator now, for those on a ventilator 50% survive.
Patients are heavily sedated and turned on their front and the ventilator takes over their breathing.
It's baffling that some survive while others don't.

Itís nature taking back whatís hers. Always a battle for balance.

I hope humanity pulls through this or this could be a repeating occurrence like the flu, but deadlier.
