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

Matthew 2 Comments

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

Matthew 0 Comments

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. …
