Because I have an Optimum card, I get emails from Loblaws. Galen Weston had this to say this morning:
“We will close immediately if we are informed of a colleague testing positive. We know communities consider us an essential service right now, but we ask for your patience as we will remain closed for as long as it takes to deep-clean, or on the advice of public health.”
Better to starve to death than die of the virus.
Testing positive is meaningless without an indication of the severity. What about false positives? I’ll say it again – most cases are MILD. Contagious doesn’t mean death. The seasonal flu is contagious and people die.
If the virus is proving hard to kill, democracy on the other hand is showing itself to be quite susceptible to death by contagion.
