Coronavirus update – Day 257

Its been almost 3/4 of a year since I have gone WFH (Work from home) in isolation  When I last posted about the numbers, we had just passed 7 million infected. That was 170 days ago. Now we are at just over 60 million.  But this post is not as much about Covid-19 as much as it is about the amount of disinformation.  In the past week I have been messages posts on Social Media that are so drenched in disinformation I feel like I need to disinfect my PC.

For this post, I will discuss 3 such posts that had me facepalming at the stupidity (or cleverness?)…

Soon to be Streaming on Twitch

As of August 2nd of this year, I will be officially streaming on Twitch. Thanks to a close friend of mine, Danielle Allard (websitetwitch) who has given me the confidence to get this up and running. I have been running Revelnoded Gaming for a few years, but only posting the odd video to Youtube. Now I have expanded to FacebookInstagram, and Twitter. I even opened up a Discord Server.

On my premier stream this Sunday, I will be streaming Marbles on Stream which is a stream community game allowing twitch viewers to join in and partake in the races.…

The Outbreak – UPDATE – Day 87

It has been a while since I did an update on the COVID-19 situation.  The reasoning is being in isolation can be, well, depressing at the very least. Being cooped up for months at a time with little to no human contact can drive even the sturdiest person up the wall.  And I am not the most sturdiest person.

So where are we at?  I will tell you this… not in a great place. We are 7,149,360 cases world wide, with the United States accounting for for over two million of that.

“But Matt!, the numbers are dropping! Why are we in a bad place?”

The Outbreak – Day 27 of Work from Home, day 40 of Isolation

A little over 2 weeks ago we broke the 1 million total case marker, now we are just over the 2.5 million mark.  Things have escalated quickly, with the United States accounting for 1/3 of the known cases world wide.  A scary thought.  But the word on the street is, it’s slowing down. Although some of us are still in areas that have just reached their peak, or getting close to it, as a whole, its starting to slow down.  But do not get your hopes up that we will be sitting poolside sipping margaritas just yet, although some governments are looking at lifting some of the bans put in place as early as next month, the World Health Organization is warning against moving too quickly.…

Outbreak – Day 16 of Work from Home, Day 24 of Isolation

Has the isolation taken it’s toll on you yet?  If so, you are not alone.  And it’s not going to be over any time soon.  In Quebec, they have pushed the closures till at least May 4th, however this will more than likely be extended once again as we get closer to that date.

There is good news though… according to an article posted by the Financial Post entitled “Google publishes tracking data showing 59 per cent drop in normal movement patterns“:

Within Canada, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec have seen the biggest reductions in traffic to workplaces, all slightly ahead of the national average.

Outbreak – Day 15 of Work from Home, Day 21 of (Self) Isolation

Well, today marks the 3rd week since I left my home in Montreal.  Yesterday (Thursday) the world passed one million reported infected.  A small number compared to the 7.5 billion world population for sure, but the shear rate at which this virus has spread is astonishing.  In my last post I mentioned a video which had data from March 15th, a few days after I left Montreal, when the world had just passed 150k infected.  It took 3 months to get to that number, now almost 3 weeks later, we have risen by more than 850k, with over 100k reported today (friday). …

Outbreak – Day 11 of Work From Home. Day 17 of Self Isolation

Yesterday Montreal announced that there were 149 new cases bringing the total of cases in the city to  1361 which accounts for almost half of the cases reported across Quebec at the time (2840).  Of the 1361 cases, 82 are healthcare workers, the front line that we rely on to help us through.

I am glad that I left the city before this all happened, but I still have friends and co-workers in MTL that I keep in contact with and make sure they are still healthy and doing well.  This virus is just starting to grab hold, I am hoping that with social distancing, and other measures being put in place at the municipal, provincial, and federal levels will hopefully start a decline in those affected.…

Outbreak – Day 10 of Work from Home, day 14 of Self Isolation

I know I have not posted in the last few days, I have just been trying to wrap my head around this whole situation.  The world is going to hell in a hand basket, and the leader of “The Greatest Nation in the World” (cough, stuck up asshole, cough) is more worried about the economy then the health of his crumbling nation.  The US has now surpassed every other country’s reported cases:

This is a time when we, as a people, need to come together, this is a global crisis.  The virus does not care what ethnicity you are, doesn’t care which country you call home. …

Outbreak – Day 7 Work from Home, Day 11 of Isolation

As the days go by, and the effects of isolation set it, I find it harder and harder to do anything.  Seeing the new today that the number of confirmed cases almost doubled in Quebec over night, and news that Quebec is shutting down, I realize more and more my decision to leave the city was the best decision to make.  We are weeks, if not days away from Martial Law being enacted and all because a small few have decided for themselves that partying and having fun is more important than the health of the country.

I called my mom the other day… those who know me know that that is a rarity. …
