so proud to be a Canadian, the man that solved the Covid -19 is from Saskatchewan.
Sure wish you could have informed the 6700 that have died there was such a easy solution.
Ignorance and denial is the parallel pandemic.

I was asked today if I would consider taking an earlier flight home (because the Canadian government is suggesting I do so) My answer is NO.I feel much safer walking around the streets of Ixtapa/Zihua than I would in an overcrowded airport right now

Don't blame you, by us the virus is happening in small clusters and who wants to be surrounded by a bunch of passengers going thru immigration and customs. The only problem for "Z & "I" are the tourist flying in. One can be carrier and not even know they have it.

Washington State is the new Wuhan
Hardly a small cluster.

Tourists flying, that's right. And a 70 year old returning businessman who returned from Vail and died yesterday. First death from CV-19 in Mexico with only 53 confirmed cases.

I was thinking the same until Mexican family in Mexico City informed me there was no testing and planes from Spain and Italy were still landing.
Spent two months in Ixtapa and was headed to PV today but decided to stay home where there is a effort to contain and test.
good luck.

You insist on posting erroneous, hysterical and misleading information about what is happening in Mexico. Now I must respectfully ask you to stop doing so. I will again post a link to Mexico's Secretaría de Salud (SSA) where people can get the only facts that matter here in Mexico. NOT from English-language newspapers looking to capitalize and sell ads based on sensationalist journalism or "family gossip".

Appreciate the attempt at levity.

What affects us in any tourist destination are diseases brought here by tourists. It is the same in every tourist destination in the world that local populations must take precautions and prepare themselves each tourist season for the potential diseases the tourists themselves bring for which our defenses may be lower. Those of us accustomed to practicing good hygiene tend to suffer these maladies less. One thing that is a real turnoff for locals is when Gringas try to kiss us on the lips, apparently an errant variation of the Mexican cheek-kissing greeting ritual between men and women and women and women.

We had dinner at Papa Loca last night and were impressed to see the cooks wearing masks.

Might be company policy. They were wearing masks two months ago.

Better yet. I hope they get paid well; cooking in that incredible heat must not be pleasant.

Epidemics are caused by the spread of viruses.Pandemics are caused by the Media. Solution: Wash your hands more often, Turn off your TV.

“Throughout history, there have been a number of pandemics of diseases such as smallpox and tuberculosis. One of the most devastating pandemics was the Black Death, which killed an estimated 75–200 million people in the 14th century. Current pandemics include HIV/AIDS and the 2019 coronavirus disease.[1][2] Other notable pandemics include the 1918 influenza pandemic (Spanish flu) and the 2009 flu pandemic (H1N1).”

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandemic

Are you suggesting that smallpox, tuberculosis, Black Death, HIV/AIDS, the 1918 flu, and the 2009 H1N1 were just media hype that would have gone away if people had just plugged their ears?

if anything the appproach to this both by our government and the media has been to conservative. The increase in daily numbers if fightening. Our health care system is approaching the breaking point. Our economy is about to go in the toilet and will take a very long time to recover.

not testing for 6 weeks is criminal.

The Covid Tracking project says 41.000 tests have been given in the USA

Lots is predictions , lots of what ifs , lots of “ experts “ giving opinions .

But your math seems to be off by a factor of 500 %

That was a couple of days ago.
WE have tested 35000 in Alberta with a population of 4 million
41000 is pretty sad.

Good Health to Everyone and Good Luck
