In the early 90's a friend of mine stayed in a room in
Rome with those facilities. Since then I have come across them in France, Spain and South Italy.

Obviously not in tourist accomodations of course.

Idiot doctors went on vacation to Hawaii and returned last weekend and carried on as normal despite not feeling 100% - they should know better than anyone!!

She is a doctor at a local hospital and has been confirmed as having Covid 19 - she wasn't feeling well, but still went into work at the cancer clinic - 14 patients (plus anyone in the waiting area) + 5 colleagues - and anyone else she came into contact with on her way to work, walking around the hospital, in the cafetaria etc., - all potentially infected and how many hundreds of others. Her husband is a surgeon at another local hospital - but is showing no symptoms "yet", So now it's in my city and no doubt spreading fast.

I think to reduce my chances of catching this thing due to my travel at the end of the month and not wanting to get sick before training, I may just refrain from leaving the apartment until my flight.

I thought the doctor who went to work after her trip wasn't showing symptoms upon her return, and as soon as she was she left work? The reports don't seem entirely clear.

I agree, but this madness is probably somewhere deep inside in all of us.
Coincidentally I received an email from a cousin of mine this morning who tells me that she'll not be going on any more cruises.
She went on to tell me that they've all been good apart from one terrible cruise around the greek islands where she became quite ill. She went on to explain that she had to hide before boarding the plane back to the UK or they wouldn't have let her board. Had this been in the age of the coronavirus then there's no telling how many would have been infected, in fact I wonder whether she did infect anyone, guess we'll never know.
This type of behaviour is completely irrational and dangerous and she's normally quite sensible but the need to get back to the UK probably trumped sanity.
But doctors, well 'physician heal thyself' doesn't quite cut it.

It seems straightforward.• The physician had travelled to Hawaii and returned Saturday. She was not symptomatic on her journey home.

• On Monday afternoon, she was working at the Juravinski Cancer Centre.

• She became symptomatic on Monday. She had mild respiratory symptoms but did not have a cough, was not sneezing and did not have a fever.

Man who attended a large conference in Toronto has tested positive for the virus.

https://www.cp24.com/news/sudbury-ma...ials-1.4847842

"Our focus is on breaking the chain of transmission to limit the spread of infection and as a precautionary measure, we are asking those who attended PDAC 2020 to monitor for symptoms for 14 days,” said Dr. Penny Sutcliffe, Sudbury’s medical officer of health."

"Health officials said that while the investigation into his case is still ongoing, he attended the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada convention in Toronto on March 2 and 3."


46 cases now in BC, 7 more confirmed today. Climbs everyday it seems.

What is this meant to mean? How would you ever know? I think I feel dodgy from the end of October until the end of May. I puff and blow like a Walrus all through winter, and all of my colleagues do too?


I fear that I might be obsessing about this, now every time I catch a breath I’m wondering if I’ve got ‘it’. I feel stupid for thinking about it, my brain tells me “no problem” but an odd far flung corner of conscience shouts “we’re doomed”. I don’t think that instant info and social media probably help either.
