    Yeah, it’s really weird that our Covid trends are as unpredictable as the stock market...

    Things are bad here (though NOWHERE NEAR the shit-show down south) and a state of emergency and stay at home order has been issued in Ontario. 3-4K new cases a day, and 7-8K daily across the country. Quebec went into a severe lockdown over the weekend which included curfews. There won’t be curfews here but other than that it’ll be identical to the lockdown we had last spring. The hope is we can duplicate the success we had in suppressing the virus as we did from March to June of last year.

    Manufacturing and supply chain shouldn’t be affected so we’ll be open. This lockdown is for 28 days. Then again the spring lockdown was also initially 28 days, but kept rolling over and was over 100 days by the time it was lifted.

    Fuck this virus. The world has had enough.

    Sadly, we are considered essential. So while I have to keep selling auto parts, rich pricks from the city get to keep driving to and from to their sprawling pallatial estates up here, spreading the virus like confetti. Because "muh freedom" and "I pay property taxes."

    Friends of Lori's had to sell their cottage in "cottage country." It had been in the family for generations. They could not afford to pay the property tax.

    Back on topic, UofSC students are back in town and packing the bars.

    Saw the rest of CA also appears to be plateauing, with the number of new patients coming in slowing down and the number of new cases holding steady or slightly dropping. We actually had one of the first areas of the state get to the point where it can get out of the full lockdown, the greater Sacramento area apparently has improved enough.

    Plateauing is good and all, it's nice to have a bit here where the infection rate isn't accelerating, especially when I think we expected to see the worst of it so far. That said, it's kinda like we've let off the gas and are thinking about hitting the brakes eventually, only problem is we've made it up to about 180 on a residential street, so the situation is still pretty shit.

    Speaking of... how is the waste water in CA? It's not so good in the Boston area.

    It's not good here either, but at least we're not trending upwards like Swervo said...

    Brisbane went into a full three-day lockdown last weekend because of one case.

    I don’t post this to gloat, but to compare and contrast. Although most of our country looks on at the rest of the world in relative horror.

    We enjoy our freedom and take it more seriously than America does, it seems.

    Former co-worker, a CRNA, made a comment that is chilling.

    Hospitals in LA are beginning to ration care.
