Thought this chart was interesting - how similar the symptoms are at times with the flu!

That is a good chart

Is Covid a sexually transmitted ailment? I'm only asking for a friend.

If 'your friend' wears a condom over their head for the entire encounter it will probably be just fine. Best make the event as quick as possible to avoid problems with suffocation.

Unfortunately I can't do my due diligence on the story because I get an error message when I click the link. I miss all the good stuff

"B.C. health officials are recommending an age-old, occasionally cutting-edge tactic for sex during the coronavirus pandemic: “glory holes.”

The B.C. Centre for Disease Control added new recommendations for socially distant sex to its COVID-19 website this week. One of those tips was to try using a “glory hole” — a hole cut into a wall that’s only large enough for a penis to slip through.

Glory holes are typically used for anonymous oral or penetrative sex, according to Urban Dictionary, but they’re also an excellent way to limit physical contact during intercourse, the B.C. CDC says.

“Use barriers, like walls (e.g., glory holes), that allow for sexual contact but prevent close face-to-face contact,” the health organization writes on its website."

That's a ridiculous joke, but somehow I laughed at the suffocation bit.

This is worrisome, Oncologists worried the delays in cancer screening this year will be leading to a tsunami of cancer due to pandemic delaying and restricting screening tests.

from March 15 to May 31 in Ontario compared to the year prior,
  • A 97 per cent decrease in screening for mammograms through the Ontario Breast Screening Program.
  • An 88 per cent decrease in Pap tests through the Ontario Cervical Screening Program.
  • A 73 per cent decrease in fecal tests through ColonCancerCheck.
Albertans diagnosed with cancer decreased by 23 percent over 2019.

In BC 25 per cent drop in cancer diagnoses.


Oncologists don't believe that cancer rates are actually dropping they are just not being diagnosed due to reductions in screening and other factors related to the pandemic.

BC Office of Human rights reminding businesses about mask exemptions, there have been people refused service and even medical tests due to being unable to wear a mask, or otherwise exempt.

Exemptions include:
  • Anyone under the age of 12
  • Anyone unable to wear a mask because of a health condition or mental impairment
  • Or anyone who is unable to put on or remove a mask without help from another person.

, if a person claims a mask exemption, businesses are to take them at their word. Proof should not be required.

So wearing masks is voluntary.
Exemptions include:
  • Anyone under the age of 12
  • Anyone unable to wear a mask because of a health condition or mental impairment
  • Or anyone who is unable to put on or remove a mask without help from another person.

, if a person claims a mask exemption, businesses are to take them at their word. Proof should not be required.
So that essentially makes it voluntary.

Young fit professional athletes.
Newcastle manager Steve Bruce shocked by effect of Covid on players
“four or five” were still sidelined by the virus. “For a couple of them it’s had a damaging effect,” he added. “It won’t be a week or two [that they’re out], it will be longer than that...“It’s not just fatigue, they’ve got other symptoms too. It washed over most of them but some are finding it a struggle...Some of them seem all right but then the fatigue element hits them, but for two it’s beyond that. They’re still going to take weeks to get back; you wouldn’t think that this long Covid thing is possible in fit, young athletes.”
