    that’s ok, mine is in his 70’s, battled back from something like pneumonia over Christmas, on oxygen and asked me to take him fishing yesterday. I asked him if he was feeling ok and he told me if he was gonna die he wanted to go doing what he loved, didn’t care about the virus.

    From the Covid-19 reporting I've heard and that's quite a bit, all of the doctors interviewed all say you probably build an immunity to the virus once you've beat it. The main reason they say this is "all corona virus's act this way". Then they always add "but we can't say this for sure because we don't have the data to support it". CYA

    Not a good time to be chummy with a death wish.

    at this point I'm not even sure how to respond to the guy. he's been much further down the road than I have and I think he's come to terms with certain areas of his life. I'll stay where I am and do what I can but I ain't telling the man what to do

    You reach a point where it’s end game and you start seeing things differently.

    It's above freezing and you're shoveling snow in a t-shirt......hope he has pants and shoes on too. If there is no one around I don't think it would be a problem, wouldn't even catch a cold. Might give a heart attack but that's about it.

    Please don't fling your gloves: City officials

    As concerns about coronavirus cut deep into the city and beyond, so, too, have complaints over piles of blue nitrile gloves appearing in parking lots, sidewalks and gutters — many discarded by shoppers after they finish buying groceries or other necessities.

    “I ask our residents observe good behaviour and dispose of their waste … be it PPE or otherwise,” Dr. Eileen de Villa said Wednesday.

    de Villa wants those discarding gloves to take a few moments to either toss them into a garbage can, or take them home for proper disposal.

    I've seen masks thrown on the ground too. Meanwhile the hospitals who actually need those masks have a shortage. My local hospital is doing a drive trying to get more equipment.

    But even if politicians don't care about the idea of a social contract, they may be inclined to listen, because repeated studies show that old people vote and the young don't.
