Washington State just declared a CoronoVirus emergency. Things are getting serious just south of the Canadian border. CoronoVirus spreading North to Canada now is a real threat. Thousands cross the border every day to do business and shopping both North and South. Traveling across the border could be halted. If the borders are closed or even slowed down due to medical checking it will devastate the Canadian economy.
The markets have already been hit hard and dropped into correction territories. Yield curves have turned down and a recession is already in the call of many economists. When and if the borders will be sealed because of the virus is not certain but certainly possible as the virus spreads. And it is spreading fast across the globe with no end in site. Video coming out of China shows people dying in the streets. Now they they that the new CoronoVirus is milder than previous Pandemics and only kills 2% or so.
CoronoVirus Spreading North to Canada
An eighth case of coronavirus, known as COVID-19, has been diagnosed in B.C. in the Vancouver Coastal Health region. With the rate of spread being now known to be quite rapid panic could set in quite quickly. Borders could be shut down in a matter of weeks. Already there is panic buying at the Costo stores in Richmond which has a high majority of Chinese population. These Canadian citizens have had close contact with the horrific events of their family in China and are taking no chances.
This virus spreads very fast and there is no cure for it. Flu Pandemics can be deadly and the great Flu Pandemic of the early 20th century killed millions of people. Almost 1/3 of the entire populations of the world and out of them around the same percentage died as the current Covia -19 virus. Now 2% or so doesn’t sound like much but when such a high amount of people can get affected it adds up to millions of deaths. Around 50 to 100 million died the the Spanish Flu epidemic. With the population of the world much larger today and international travel and trade much higher the deaths could also be much, much higher.
From eastern Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and Africa, a steady stream of new cases on Friday fueled fears. A new coronavirus epidemic may be turning into a global pandemic, with some health officials saying it may be inevitable. In South Korea, Italy and Iran the countries with the biggest outbreaks outside China reported more than 3,500 infections on Friday. Twice as many as two days earlier, and South Korea reported almost 600 more on Saturday. South Korean officials were rushing to test thousands of members of a church at the center of that country’s outbreak.
No doubt about it God is shouting his wrath and showing his disappointment with mankind. Didn’t he cleanse the earth once before with the great flood. Biblical predictions of the end times in revelations call for a plaque. Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.
Coronavirus heading to Canada
Coronavirus cases continued to be confirmed in Canada. By following some basic steps, you can help reduce your risk, and do your part to protect others, if your community is affected.
Here’s what you can do:
How to Prepare for the CoronoVirus
- Keep your hands clean, and keep your distance from sick people
- Unless you are already infected, face masks won’t help you
- Stock up on home supplies, medicine and resources
- Prepare your family, and communicate your plan
- With your children, keep calm and carry on — and get the flu shot
- About to go on vacation? Consider your destination and how you feel about risk
- Take a deep breath when thinking about the stock market
The coronavirus continues to spread in Asia, Europe and the Middle East, with more than 70 cases and one death confirmed in the United States.
While the Food and Drug Administration announced this weekend that testing in the United States would be greatly expanded, health experts have been warning that the virus’s spread in the country is inevitable. That means it’s time to prepare your home and family in case your community is affected.
Most important: Do not panic. While the outbreak is a serious public health concern, the majority of those who contract the coronavirus do not become seriously ill, and only a small percentage require intensive care.
By following some basic steps, you can help reduce your risk and do your part to protect others.
