Canadian Smugness

Further proof that our experts are just that: ex…perts. This from the US CDC:

There is not a significant risk of catching the coronavirus from an infected surface or object, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a coronavirus guidance update on Monday.

People generally catch COVID-19 through direct contact with a sick person or droplet or airborne transmission, the nation’s top health agency said.

“It is possible for people to be infected through contact with contaminated surfaces or objects (fomites), but the risk is generally considered to be low,” the revised guidance states.

And now, barely a year later, we learn that we could all have just kept on with the same cleaning routines nearly everyone had been using for ages. I’m not saying it’s a bad idea to clean your home and office regularly, but that was true before the pandemic started. The same common-sense cleaning procedures and products we’d all been using would have been fine. Better late than never, I suppose, but it certainly sounds like a lot of time, money and effort were poured into a process that hadn’t been subjected to serious, scientific scrutiny before the nation was sent stampeding into a panic.

Just like masks and social distancing.

He was just trying to flatten her curves: Hunter Biden (President’s son) has ‘no recollection’ of meeting stripper with whom he had a child; Hunter Biden says he wasn’t ‘keeping tabs on possessions and no religion too’ when asked about the laptop dance.

Canadian smugness: ah remember when Canadians were criticizing Americans and the US at great lengths due to their Covid response. That we as Canadians were so much better attuned and equipped to handle this crisis? Remember? Well, guess what?

Canada is on track to surpass the US in Covid 19 and variants cases per capita. US has issued a travel advisory to Americans to avoid travel to Canada at all costs.

I like the term Corona-Virus much better than Covid-19. Corona-Virus sounds like some new type of beer whereas Covid-19, by its name, could be the male equivalent to Chanel Number 5…just sayin.
