Continuation of my previous blog (extra measures during these trying times – [ https://renataveritasopinion.com/2020/03/18/covid-19-viral-pandemic-extra-measures/ ) ]
Here Victoria, Vancouver Island. Most residents try to keep social distancing. I say most, or many, not all. What surprised me was that there are still people who do not take this seriously, including health care workers, who are sick, now at home. And tell you (on the phone, luckily) “I am OK, will come back to work in one week”.
NOT GOOD !!!
This virus is quite persistent, may be dormant after a bout of respiratory disease, but can still become life again and try finding a new host, to replicate. Personally, I definitely do not go to that clinic after a health care worker comes back to work after one week, even two weeks, even more.

What counts is, how well everyone’s immune system can cope.
