    Fear not everyone, Pat Robertson, a well-known Christian televangelist, has worked out what caused the Coronavirus: oral sex! With women! Which they didn't have when he was younger!

    The COVID-2019 Thread-eu2anfexyaecw9s-jpg

    During an appearance on "The 700 Club," Robertson, blamed the Coronavirus on oral sex.

    "Some of these young uns are doing all sorts of unnatural things with their sex organs," said Robertson. "When people do that, they transfer all kinds of chemicals from ladies' private parts and that's where I think the virus came from. We never had this kind of thing when I was coming up. But no one was committing oral sex back then."

    Robertson previously blamed 9/11 on witches and lesbians.

    Well, here ya go, a bit more testing…

    http://edition.cnn.com/2020/04/05/us/tiger-coronavirus-new-york-trnd/index.html


    and all this time we were blaming Chinese bats…

    (CNN)Nadia, a tiger at the Bronx Zoo in New York, has become the first of her kind to test positive for the coronavirus.
    The 4-year-old female Malayan tiger tested positive after developing a dry cough and is expected to recover, the Wildlife Conservation Society's Bronx Zoo said in a
    news release.

    Samples from Nadia were taken and tested after the tiger -- and five other tigers and lions at the zoo -- began showing symptoms of respiratory illness, according to the
    United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). No other animals at the zoo are showing symptoms.

    Though they have experienced some decrease in appetite, the cats at the Bronx Zoo are otherwise doing well under veterinary care and are bright, alert, and interactive with their keepers," the zoo said.




    Bats are not to blame for coronavirus. Humans are

    Residents in a working-class district of the Ivory Coast city of Abidjan on Sunday destroyed a coronavirus testing centre that was under construction, police and health ministry officials said.

    Videos posted on social media, showed several dozen people dismantling the building, some of them shouting: "We don't want it!"

    The incident happened in Yopougon district of the city of five million inhabitants, which is the
    country's commercial capital.


    Locals had demonstrated against the centre because they thought it was too close to their homes and right in the middle of a residential district, one police officer told AFP on condition of anonymity.


    But the building, which was still under construction, had never been intended as a treatment centre for
    virus patients -- only as a testing centre, said a health ministry official, who also asked not to be named.

    How many times/day do you wash your hands?

    I wash after eating, touching food, a piss, playing with the dog etc, as normal, no more nor less than usual.

    If the virus is in my home I will catch it with or without a hand washing ritual, and if not there's no reason to change my routine.

    Anything wrong with this thinking?

    I think they mean when you go out and get groceries or go out and do anything in general you should wash your hands when you get back. If you are touching anything and then touch your face you could get infected. I wear gloves when shopping and made my own bandana mask just in case. The hands get raw after washing them so much, though. The hand sanitizer is super drying as well.

    My friend who works in CM area is in Pattaya right now. She's been telling me she went there to escape the horrid pollution in CM at the moment and it is as dead as a doornail in Pattaya. She is not able to come back to Canada, but doesn't care because school may or may not go back in May she was told.

    I've always thought that Peter Hitchens is a complete moron who occasionally makes a salient point, and this interview (with Morgan who is another unpleasant chap/idiot more often than not) just reinforces my thoughts.

    Indonesians are now required to wear face masks when leaving their homes, the Indonesian spokesperson for COVID-19-related matters announced yesterday.

    “Everyone has to wear their masks. Surgical and N95 masks are only for health workers. Wear fabric masks ⁠— this is important because we don’t know if people out there are transmitting the disease, even without symptoms,” Achmad Yurianto said during a press conference in Jakarta.

    The new requirement is in accordance with a WHO-issued advisory on the use of masks to prevent COVID-19 transmission, wherein the general public is urged to wear washable, non-medical grade fabric masks.


    Achmad said fabric face masks should be washed, at the latest, after four hours of being worn by soaking them in soap water before rinsing.
    “Wash your hands with soap, this is the key,” Achmad added.

    No penalties for violation of the policy have been announced thus far.

    However, in Jakarta, public transportation facilities such as the
    MRT, TransJakarta, and the airport train are refusing passengers without face masks to board vehicles.


    Separately, Wiku Adisasmito, an expert from the COVID-19 rapid response team, said that three-layered fabric masks can decrease the chances of getting infected with the coronavirus by 70 percent.

    As of yesterday, the government has reportedly conducted rapid tests ⁠—
    the accuracy of which have come under scrutiny ⁠— on 9,712 people across the country as the first step towards wider detection of infections. Some 2,000 more have undergone the more accurate swab test.


    As of Sunday afternoon, Indonesia has confirmed 2,273 positive cases of COVID-19, which includes 198 deaths and 164 recoveries.

    Ya good point, youngest person to die in Canada is a woman in her 20's.
    Youngest COVID-19 death so far in Canada is Alberta woman in her 20s | Globalnews.ca

    Also the figures here in Canada and in the U.S are showing that more people who are in the age range from 30-50 are getting Covid-19 which is pretty scary.

    There is no surprise that they are "getting" it is there?

    This issue is if any in that age group get sick enough to need ICU treatment, or die.

    China and Pakistan may be allies but the former's recent ‘under'-handed stunt may have just added insult to injury.


    A video of a Pakistani reporter saying "China ne chuna laga diya” has been going viral on the internet. Why, you ask? Well, according to various reports, China has apparently sent masks made of underwear to Pakistan instead of the promised N-95 masks to help deal with coronavirus outbreak.

    <snip>

    This is not the first such incident to come from China either.
    Spain recently returned a batch of coronavirus testing kits back to China after it was found that their detection rate was just 30 per cent.

    <snip>

    Reports of faulty test kits also came from Czech Republic. Local Czech site Expats.cz reported that ‘up to 80 per cent of the 150,000 portable, quick coronavirus testing kits
    China delivered to the Czech Republic earlier this month were faulty’.

    The United States wasted time. A lot of it. And as a result, lost the ability to take control of the coronavirus crisis in time. That is the clear conclusion of two in-depth reports, one published by the Associated Press and another by the Washington Post that reviewed how the Trump administration failed to get ready for the pandemic that has now engulfed the country.

    The AP reviewed federal purchasing contracts and reports that federal agencies waited until mid-March to place bulk orders for N95 respirator masks, mechanical ventilators, and other essential equipment for health care workers. When that happened, hospitals were already straining to deal with a surge in patients amid a shortage of equipment. “We basically wasted two months,” Kathleen Sebelius, health and human services secretary during President Barack Obama’s administration, told AP.

    Even though officials knew since mid-January that hospitals in China were being overwhelmed by patients who required ventilators, getting the attention of the president and other top officials proved difficult. Instead, the federal government left much of the responsibility to acquire supplies to the states, creating a messy patchwork that saw governors outbid each other for desperately needed equipment. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump seemed to spend more time dismissing talk of the virus as exaggerated and some of his top health officials downplayed the risk to Americans.
