Here is an update on the Corona-virus or COVID19.
Here is an update on the Corona-virus or COVID19. I have reports from 22 news services from around the globe, so it seems everyone is keeping up to date on it. "Corona Virus Infects Over 6,000 in China, Exceeds the SARS Epidemic"..." More Than 1,000 Killed Globally by New Virus".... "Latest Report Shows Over 78,000 Infected Globally by Virus" .... "Philippines Confirms 11th Virus Case, Government Preparing to Provide Isolation Housing".... "Experts Still Say Cure of Virus in 18 Months".... "China Now Reports Over 42,000 Virus Patients".... "Latest Death Count Due to Virus is 1,933 Globally".... "Italy Shuts Down 10 Villages Due to Virus".... "South Korea Reports 229 New Virus Cases".... "Virus Cases Now Reported in 28 Countries".... "Hong Kong to Close Airports Concourse Due to Low Number of Flights Because of Virus".... "2nd Virus Case Confirmed in Israel".... "Iran Reports 8 Deaths Due to Virus and Infected Currently at 43".... Latest Report Shows 78,000 Infected Globally, But Not Every Country is Report Their Cases."
Unfortunately, there are a lot of companies out there taking advantage of this global epidemic. Particular masks, not your normal paper masks, are going at $400 a piece or more. Some companies even out selling cure all drugs in third world countries that have no proof they work against the virus. Fear can become a major factor. Some homes of infected people have been burned down by mobs in third world countries. Unfortunately the fires can also assist in the spread of an airborne virus. Isolation housing of suspect victims is a safe exercise and our American military is preparing old military house to hold suspect victims for 14-days, which is seen by the scientists to be the required incubation time.
It is too bad that the first scientist who discovered this virus was not listened to until he died from it. Might have given us a jump to finding a cure, but it seems China didn't want this news to go out.
I am back to writing. Publisher has asked me to do one more editing to "Rookie", so I am now working on that right now.
Looking forward to Spring and cleaning up the yard. We hope to get some serious gardening done this Spring and Summer. Hope to build a new green house this summer, as the last one collapsed under snow load. But it taught us something.
Been thinking about entering a new t-shirt design for this years Moose Pass Festival. I've been blessed by having three designs chosen in the past. What I like is how the committee chooses quality t-shirts instead of those cheap ones that never last. The festival is held in late June, for the Solstice Festival. I use my own characters so the shirts are lighthearted. Most people, very good artists to be sure, submit serious ones. My main characters are a moose of course, but also a bear. Already have my idea, but need my ancient hands to quit shaking. Oh it can be fun getting old....right!
Not much else going on. Some cabin fever from the cold, snow and ice. You can get tired of being stuck in the house after so long. I'm on the end of my 5th week of being housebound. But my rib is all healed, I'm simply waiting for smooth roads. I'm back to going to church and that helps. Chris is going along with me. Our Pastor is the best historical speaker concerning the Bible I've ever listened to.
All for now, need to get back to my book. Love to all and God Bless everyone. BILL
