Quite the guy you got there....lucky you!I was party to a live stream funeral service today ... Garry's cousin. I counted more than 20 people in 'physical' attendance (Brandon MB) and I would imagine a sizeable host of virtual congregants. We 'attended', Garry and myself, unmasked within the quarantine of our 'home office'. Garry in his 3 piece suit and I in my sweats. It was a wonderful service and with much testimony to a character that verily spoke to each of our own mother's who had passed away respectively within the last 2 years. We both shed a tear or two in remembrance of the gifts that those good people leave in their 'wake'. The occasion for much laughter also presented itself when I remarked that I was feeling dizzy with hunger and Garry rushed out of the office to retrieve for me a 'plate' of pinwheel sandwiches (creamed cheese and pommegranate seeds because we had no cherries which his mother would have preferred). You had to be there I suppose ... he had prepared these without my knowledge ... based on the premise that a funeral without pinwheel sandwiches is virtually or otherwise ... just not right!
I think the most successful countries with keeping their Covid numbers down are pro active early, so it's probably a good thing IMO.Slovakia, a country with 5.4 million people, is testing its whole population. They already tested 2.5 mio and found 1% positiv cases. They are using quick tests, which are not as reliable. In certain hotspots, they are planning to test again after one week. Does that make sense?
We need an emote that would say amused by your post, but acknowledging the underlying concern – the worry you must have for your children. My son lives in Korea and is hoping to get home for a visit sometime in the new year. He realizes that half of his visit will be spent in isolation in his sister's finished basement, but it's been 2 1/2 years – too long for all of us.COVID is steadily infecting more people in my home area. Not huge numbers but per capita it isn't good. One of my kids texted today to say she and her family had all just been exposed to a positive case. The guy was visiting them when he got the news. I think his test was a 'routine ' one connected with his place of employment - or maybe his coaching activities. Another of my kids is still in quarantine in Miami waiting to get on the cruise ship she is supposed to work on. Another works in a place that has had several cases - the experts haven't yet decided to close the place down for a while. The fourth kid basically stays home. Pops into the grocery store as needed, and comes to visit with us most days.
I rather wish Trump had been correct with his words that it was just going to disappear!
Depends on the plan. I wish we would be told the false negative and false positive rate of tests in general in a way where it's easy to find the information, and I don't mean just for SARS-CoV2.Slovakia, a country with 5.4 million people, is testing its whole population. They already tested 2.5 mio and found 1% positiv cases. They are using quick tests, which are not as reliable. In certain hotspots, they are planning to test again after one week.
