COVID-19, Coronavirus Pandemic

Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus  (World Health Organization (WHO).  My contract in BC start has been delayed because of Covid-19.

WHO has some guidelines that can be followed on this page – Q&A on coronaviruses (COVID-19).  Of particular interest for protection and prevention is the Question What can I do to protect myself and prevent the spread of the disease?

Covid-19 does not practice discretion as to who it attacks. Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO noted:

A major advantage to the contract delay is I will be here to support my wife during these troubling times, and  I will not be exposed and maybe expose more vulnerable people to Covid-19.  It is unfortunate.  The misfortune pales in comparison to that of those who will be stricken by the virus.
