Just invest in houses and condos, if one goes up and the other goes down you don't care.

Spend time in condo being healthy is much better than being sick and spend time in ICU hooking up to machine.

Why do people in Europe and North America get so sick?

In Thailand most are asymptomatic and that even includes foreigners who arrive in quarantine.

I just don't get it.

In VN, cases and deaths are very low. I question that.

Scientists will have to look into why some regions have much higher cases. Mostly because of weather, I guess.

It could have something to do with body immunity. Countries with lower hygienic standards (India comes to mind), although have had high infection rates, have lower percentage of death compared to countries with high hygiene (Europe, North America). When a body is used to living in unhygienic conditions it has higher immunity. Just a guess. Medical scientists will have to research on this.
Isn't it great to live in the 21st century where deleting history has become more important than making it.

How many obese people are there in SE Asia?

I wonder why there isn't more emphasis here on living healthy, eating well and exercising. Try that and you get criticized for fat shaming. No winning.

They have said that the spread is coming from multiple generations of people living in one home.

yeah, that's probably a big factor. whenever there's ICU footage or an interview with a covid patient, they're almost always at least fat if not obese.

The average person is overweight so it makes sense, but plenty of "skinny" people are getting sick from this. This is precisely why cases are spiking out of control because people think because they don't look like the people on TV, they'll be fine. Remember when young people thought they were safe beause COVID was killing old people?

Look at Peel region and the particular hot spots with high % positivity rates - lots of multigenerational households in/around GTA. Millennial kids hangout in person with friends (who also more likely than not live in a multigenerational home), parents who may have to go to on-site workplace and don't forget about grandma/grandpa. That's easily 5-6 people under a roof. Not surprising it spreads like wildfire if someone in the household catches it. It happened to one of my friends recently, their whole household caught covid and unfortunately a grandparent passed away. It's sad and people need to take proper precaution with who they contact outside.

Can't point the finger to condos, houses with multiple people are an issue too. Whether its deemed necessary for a total lockdown or not, people are getting careless regarding distancing and (lack of/improper) mask wearing when going outside which isn't helping the situation.

They have never been able to control Peel. Hard to police people at home. Vaccine can't come soon enough.

But it's funny, we don't hear about it coming from condos...yet coming from houses... But condos are made to sound like ground zero. Some just hate condos and are using this as an opportunity to crap on condos. It's pretty easy to see. Condos have rules. Houses do not.

Doug Ford doesn’t seem to care at all about small businesses. Let’s see if these owners remember in a couple of years when we have an election.

He's long gone. Small businesses are going to get cratered...especially during the busiest time of the year. Black Friday and Christmas. Many will not survive.

Can you imagine that they are going to miss Christmas and Black Friday sales? It is just sickening to think about. As someone on Twitter pointed out, why can’t they have 2-5 people in their store, but Walmart and Costco will have over a hundred at a time.

It makes no sense to me. This all feels like the Bible story Noah’s Ark. Only Costco, Amazon, Walmart, and the crew are allowed on the ship!

Small businesses need to get mobile trucks and drive to York and Durham Region to do their sales. Vaughan Mills is going to be packed.

Would another government have acted differently and disregarded the health communities protestations for another lockdown? I can’t see the former liberal govt ignoring the medical directives for a lockdown (and probably would have locked down small businesses sooner). Now whether a lockdown is warranted or if the medical community is over reacting is another topic all together, but when it comes to political play, no govt/party in Ontario has the guts to go against the medical community
