No Escape   3 comments

It appears there’s no escaping the coronavirus, even in Second Life. I was visiting the new round of The Mens Dept, and I found this for sale … a set of statues and décor for an “Anti Coronavirus Disinfection Team.” There could be a bit of black humour here, reflecting the times we’re passing through; but it appears the maker is serious as well. They say that 100% of profit will be used “for buying real protective suit for medical institution.” (Sic) (I do NOT know if this is real or not, so use your judgement before purchasing. CB)

In reality, we do need to exercise some concern over what’s coming. The thing is to do it without jumping over the cliff edge like a lemming supposedly does. (They don’t.) Do the commonsense things you’re supposed to do anyway as part of a proper health regimen — wash your hands thoroughly, don’t cough into the open, and don’t leave your home if you feel any symptoms — will all help tremendously. These won’t stop the spread, but they’ll slow things down tremendously, to where public health can cope far easier with the infection.

Update: I didn’t think of this before, but here’s the page from the Public Health Agency of Canada on current conditions and recommendations. And, in courtesy to the American readers, here’s the same information from the Centers for Disease Control.
