    Covid19 and new scams

    I know none of you would get fooled by any of these scams (many just versions of earlier ones) but please forward this link on to any of your older relatives or indeed anyone who may be fooled. I first sent this out to many of my clients on Friday and today got a call from someone who had prevented a relative from being scammed by one of these. Made me feel good.

    If someone doesn't hate you, you're a wimp... comp: circa 2012.. and now 2013 as well, quite likely continuing into 2014, Now confirmed as CONTINUING well into 2014. Ah, f'it, 2015's just more of the same..

    Did they say it would prevent Covid19?

    New Scams!

    We can't even afford the old scams like Essential oils, chiropractors, nephropathy, Homeopathy, Essential oils and religion!

    I think the total number of cases in Canada by April 30th will be 48,000.

    Is that cases of Covid or people scammed using Covid? Does any of us know anyone yet confirmed having Covid? Only a matter if time.

    Think I would take the over on both..

    nope , haven’t heard of any friends of friends having the Covid.

    being in the big city is too funny with all the Idiots driving around in their Mercedes Benz with the Mask that does absolutely nothing and the blue latex gloves .

    just wash your damm hands when you get home and don’t pick your nose as much as usual and you should be fine.

    Sorry, I think everyone should wear a mask. It spreads through droplets and you can have it without showing symptoms. Microscopic droplets can come out of your mouth just from talking. You don't need to be coughing or sneezing. That's why they say to stay 6 ft away.

    A mask prevents an infected person from spreading it.

    Now I know there's a shortage and the doctors and nurses should get first dibs. But the govt should start making them and distributing them to everyone. In the meantime stay at least 6ft away from people because you might be spreading it.

    Awwwww...... ☹️. What else are we supposed to do under quarantine?

    No direct links, yet, but My wife works in the same company as the guy from Milton who was the second death and my neighbourís coworker was treating him before he was diagnosed but I havenít heard the results of her tests. Thatís as close as i want to get to this.

    You guys are wimps..... Beat cancer twice and this will seem like the sniffles...


    Seriously tho, wash your hands often, distance yourself, and thank the front line responders profusely. This could get much worse, especially for us omc's...

    Unfortunately, it is going to get worse before it gets better due to more people's tests finally getting done. We can't get discouraged, keep doing what they say and it will eventually start to go down.

    There are still 11,000 tests to be determined.

    yup, you are 100% correct. It should take maybe 3 weeks just to get some data that makes sense. The backlog is giving people a false sense of security.

    I think once they catch up on those, you will see the numbers start to drop.

    With all due respect to everyone, I do not think you are grasping the seriousness of the situation. This will last months, at least.

    This is about the USA but everyone should read it.
