As a Canadian I'm concerned, there is still a lot of traffic going back and forth between these two countries. Is it necessary? Most definitely, I mean goods have to be transported between our countries, but on the flipside it only makes sense that a certain percentage of people crossing between the borders is bound to bring in new cases. The US is a disaster zone unfortunately, and Canada really isn't doing that well, better by far but still in a danger zone. Until the US is able to say that the virus is under control in the US, Canada will always be at risk due to our close proximity and trade relations. I am not blaming the US for our problems regarding our response, it's just that what happens in the US tends to affect Canada whether it's intended or not. They are predicting up towards of 60k per day new cases in the near future in Canada if this thing isn't licked. That's a staggering amount considering the population base. I don't know if this post is all over the place or makes sense it's just this thing is very scary and until EVERY country puts in place adequate measures this thing is going to be a concern.

It could have been prevented. If only americans started thinking about everyone and not just their very own precious individual human rights.

Wrong. The 2,000 per day figure was barely cracked three days last week, Wednesday - Friday. The last time before that was one day in late June. The figure was reached a number of times in April and May. But back then, the number of new cases in the US every day was a small fraction of what it is now.
That means the virus is far less-deadly than it was, and this is evidenced by the steadily-falling mortality rate. Back in the darkest days of April and may, that rate was over 6%. Today it is 2.1% and a few days away from hitting 2.0%. We never saw 100k new cases in one day until October 30, and since November 3rd, new cases daily has not been below 100k. But on November 3rd, the mortality rate was 2.5%.
We are clearly seeing a second wave of infections, as illustrated by the falling rate of recovered cases. But until the mortality rate starts to climb again, and I am far from convinced that it will, you cannot say that the virus is worse. There are treatments that did not exist six months ago. What I take from the numbers is that the virus was probably less-deadly six months ago than we thought. Testing was not being done like it is now, and many of those who were infected and showed little or no symptoms were not being caught. That artificially inflated the mortality rate.

Are they dying WITH or BECAUSE OF the Hunan Virus? There is an important difference that most people seem unable or unwilling to grasp. Less than 1% of people diagnosed with the disease actually die as a result of it.

That's not true. The death rate hasn't gone up nearly as much as though who have it. You really need to educate yourself and stop watching CNN.

No, they are not. Only 10k have died.

The US is the only country handicapped w/ a trump factor. The high rate of contamination is relevant to how he mishandled the crisis. For example, he admitted to intentionally downplaying it. This encouraged reckless behavior in the people who take his words seriously.

it was a inside job look at this info
the company has never been charged and not one of them have even been jailed over this , what testing for scars and why every year and why on bats , what does this have to do with us , they have never named the company that did this why .....so we cant sue them thats why , from now on every test company needs to let you know what they are testing and why and what for .......and you have the right to put your foot down and tell them no way ,
