Daily Quote: April 14, 2020

The marvels of daily life are exciting;
no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street.
~ Robert Doisneau (French – Photographer April 14, 1912 – April 1, 1994)


National Gardening Day

Pathologists Assistant Day


I resumed my daily walking routine on Sunday.  Camera in hand and Rickie at my side it took almost 2 1/2 hours to complete my normal route through the St. Clair Conservation Area, almost 7 kilometers in total.  The paths weren’t too muddy, but there were a couple of sections I almost got stuck in.  Rickie loves the boardwalks and the excitement all around.  We found bloodroot in bloom, but the other flowers are just starting to sprout their leaves.  Many of the birds are returning from the long trip south, but I didn’t see the bald eagle yet nor have I seen any redwing blackbirds.

Today the Premier of Ontario announced that emergency measures will remain in effect for an additional 28 days.  So the self isolation will continue for another month.  My step son has recovered and will be returning to work tomorrow.

The COVID-19 numbers are still climbing.

Location

Confirmed

Cases per 1 million people

Recovered

Deaths

Worldwide
1,905,935 245.11 446,336 118,623
United States
580,097 1,760.24 43,130 23,068
Canada
25,599 674.03 7,681 778

These numbers (from Wikipedia) only include the number of confirmed cases by test and are probably much lower than the actual numbers.

The USA is still the winner with more than 1/4 of the world’s total cases and the highest number of deaths for one country.

Although Canada has only 1/10 the population of the USA, our numbers are almost 1/3 the number of cases per Million.  The USA death rate is at about 4% of total cases and the Canadian Death Rate is at about 3%.
