British Columbia: 7 new cases and zero deaths. An entire uninterrupted week of no deaths.
I figured what these states have in common (in addition to the politics of their governors, which may well be a factor) is they're hot. So I've been wondering about air conditioning.
Well apparently the Blue Jays have closed their US spring-training facility due to a player with a positive test. It was just a crawler on the screen so I have no further details.I really wonder how all the organized sports leagues are going to handle this kind of situation. I really doubt it's limited to just one training camp in one sport.
Sample size of one, but....today I took our cat to the vet. We booked an appointment in advance, I parked in front of the clinic, the vet tech came out (wearing mask and gloves) and got the carrying case out of the back seat. Then I waited for him to bring her back out.
The vet clinic has a BIG sign on its door saying: call us if you're here for an appointment and we'll come out; no walk-in appointments; no entry without a mask; no waiting in the waiting area.
I was parked out front for 15 minutes. During that time I saw four different people, without masks, walk up to the door and go in, and then stand right next to the reception desk and the receptionist I guess the clinic staff are tired of telling people to leave, and I feel for them. But all I could think while sitting in my car and seeing this was "why the h*ll am I bothering?"
I think its unlikely we will see sports played this year. Unless everyone just says eff, we will not test and play anyway.And then there's this:
Clemson announced 28 new positive tests for *********-19 on Friday, and a source told ESPN's David Hale that 21 football players were among the new cases. Two football players also tested positive in the initial round of testing.tinyurl.com
You're missing my point. The survey is not random. It isn't statistically valid. The fact that it matches your experience is interesting, but it doesn't change what the survey could measure.
There is a lot of speculation about air conditioning.
Oh lord, European offices were already intolerable, with the Spanish and Italians claiming a/c will kill them. I'm never going to be able to go into an office in summer again.
My friend who works in retail for a Spanish company in the UK has his shop heated to 27 Celsius (80 F) because (according to his management) that temperature kills the ********. Doesn't sound right to me. I am not going into any shop that's 27 Celsius. I can't imagine having to work in that temperature, with a mask, shield, etc.
I don't understand why they aren't sure. Aren't there cases that have been studied where one infected person infected everyone within his air flow (i.e., were the A/C was moving the air) but no one outside of it?And the whole air conditioning thing is up in the air anyway. Is it the air conditioning, or is that people are crowding inside air conditioned places to escape the heat? Husband works on a number of projects with companies in the southwest and the workers he talks to are all fretting about air conditioning.
I am afraid to talk about Sweden because certain people bitched about it so much.And here I thought that all us people who just want to cower in our homes were oh so afraid to talk about Sweden because it proves us wrong!
