Kids may not be as safe as earlier thought-----

Here's an article with information from various heath agencies that points how children may not be as safe from Covid19 as earlier thought.

One source stated that children present symptoms more like influenza so they aren't tested as often as adults with more severe symptoms.

In short, if not tested nobody really knows how it effects children.

My stepson was tested last Friday finally got results today. We are relived that he is fine, his wife and our grandson.

There is a baby in Toronto that has confirmed case, 2 yr old.

We just added 10 more cases to our community of 500,000 in Southern Ontario. Community spread has been tracked much like Washington State and British Columbia.



This is real folks, not some normal flu.

Teens don't realize that they can be carriers. They may not have symptoms but could transfer to their Grandparents. Local tv station here had some real eye opening information today. Glad I'm staying where I am over heading home through 8 states!

Considering how the virus infections and deaths in NJ are rising now staying put is probably best.

A ten year old here in VA has tested positive, as have a bunch of college-age students. One is here in my town and had just returned from a trip overseas.

As B and B said, this is real. I would add, very frightening, too.

Stay safe, everyone!

Most if not all viruses have people who are immune to them. I have never had mumps, measles or chicken pox. I was exposed many times. Somehow people were thinking children weren’t getting this virus, now you know what you didn’t realize before.
We have a stay home order here except for essentials food, medical etc. Went to Costco 1.5 hour drive and combined with my wife’s dental, they closed the office for 14 days. Costco was very limited and had a sign at the door of non returnable items. Hopefully this will slow down the overbuying. There wasn’t much to choose from, no chicken or ground beef, baby supplies, paper goods and more. But people were buying those essential TV sets. The parking lot and roads had more traffic so much for staying home. I think it will take the National guard to enforce that one.

No immunity to this one

Corona is not a human virus. The human genome has never experienced it and therefore has absolutely no natural immunity to it. What we are currently experiencing is a mutation that allowed it to jump species, from one with some natural immunity to one with none, ergo the extreme contagion.

Perhaps they should have said Covid19 which I understand is a noval corona virus which means that it has jumped species.
It is true that there is no natural immunity to the virus and that it is extremely contageous.

Just heard today the ONT Prov Police will be enforcing the rules on gathering sizes in their jurisdictions, I'm sure the municipal police will follow in theirs.
