I was happy to be able to spend the last few days of my vacation on the Toronto islands, and go swimming for the first time this summer.
And although I was supposed to be in Scotland, visiting my parents.
And had been looking forward to getting far away from Canada, and trying to forget the horror of Covid-19, by breathing in the fresh air of the North Sea.
On a beach like this one, not far from my highland home.
But even if I had been able to go, I would have known that feeling wouldn't last long,
Because no matter how far you go, you can't get away from this monstrous killer.
For it's still all around us, it will be with us for years. And because not enough Canadians are wearing masks, or are acting like lunatics...
It's surging again, even in places like British Columbia.
And this fall and winter could be its most murderous season ever.
As for me my conscience is clear. My friends and I have been fighting the beast for months.
And I've also done my best to convince people I know, and even total strangers, why Covid-19 is a deadly threat.
I carry pictures like this one of a lung ravaged by Covid around on my mobile...
As well as this picture of a tiny alveolus or air sac where you can see little blood clots sprouting like mushrooms.
Getting ready to set sail around the body, and damage brains and/or hearts
But most of all I have warned them about this smoking gun.
Skeptics of the notion that the coronavirus spreads through the air — including many expert advisers to the World Health Organization — have held out for one missing piece of evidence: proof that floating respiratory droplets called aerosols contain live virus, and not just fragments of genetic material.
Now a team of virologists and aerosol scientists has produced exactly that confirmation of infectious virus in the air.
Because it changes EVERYTHING.
A research team at the University of Florida succeeded in isolating live virus from aerosols collected at a distance of seven to 16 feet from patients hospitalized with Covid-19 — farther than the six feet recommended in social distancing guidelines.
And makes wearing masks even more important.
But what chance do I and others have to change any minds, when so many Canadians are so deliberately and proudly ignorant?
And most of them are filthy Cons:
Political affiliation is also correlated with a person’s categorization in the Index. Past CPC voters are four-times more likely to be Cynical Spreaders than those who voted for the Liberal Party or New Democratic Party in 2019.
Who not only satisfied with trying to destroy this country with their ghastly fake scandals, are now trying to kill as many people as possible.
And that's where I'll leave it, with this final warning.
Unless we can flatten the curve, and the filthy Cons, tens of thousands of Canadians could soon be taking a trolley to the morgue...
I hope and pray that won't happen, but from what I know and see I can't see how it can be avoided.
I can't see how anyone with a serious respiratory problem is going to survive for long.
And yes, if it does happen, it will have been preventable...
I hope all the readers of this blog are safe, and I just want to say I'm happy to be back with you.
Please enjoy the last days of summer, because it's dying too.
And it like life itself, is too precious to be wasted...
