NATIONAL TATER DAY
National Sunflower Day
(Día Nal. del Girasol) – Argentina
COVID-19 Pandemic continues. We are now at Day 13 of Quarantine after travel. My youngest son picked up bread and milk for us. We are still waiting to hear how my stepson is on his trucking adventure home where he will get testing done to see if he has COVID-19.
5,655 cases including 61 deaths have been reported in Canada (overall case fatality rate of 1.1%) The worst news was from a retirement home in Bobcaygeon Ontario where 7 confirmed COVID-19 people have died of the 65 residents. (an additional 2 died from other natural causes and 10 staff are awaiting test results).
In comparison there are at least 155,252 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the US and at least 2,828 people have died in the US from COVID-19. Just a reminder that Canada has only about 10% of the total population of the USA.
President Trump has extended the shut down in the USA until April 30th. He stated that Easter was just a hopeful date.
