  1. https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/24/health/filipino-nurse-deaths/index.html I did not know this. This is a stunning statistic.
  2. And some still don't believe it is a real disease. Or that it will affect them or their loved ones .. "200,000 people have died from Covid-19 in the US. That's more than the US battle deaths from 5 wars combined" "Covid-19 is now the second-leading cause of death in the US, just after heart disease, according to the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/22/health/us-coronavirus-deaths-200k/index.html As someone who has worked with Covid patients and has seen the suffering and loss of life, I can't wrap my head around the public ignorance!! One shouldn't need to work in medical field to understand how dangerous this virus is. A quick look at the stats makes it perfectly clear! Sorry for venting, I'm just so frustrated. Especially when I hear POTUS saying they're "doing a good job at handling this" and encouraging bars and schools to open back up!! What are they thinking really? Also, the CDC admitting it is an airborne virus (we all knew that) then going back and retracting what they said?? Obviously a whistleblower leaked that official CDC update. Why are they covering up the reality? So even more people will die?

    Pools and massages: Yes or No?

    I do not know if this is the right forum. I looked on internet and got no answers. Where I live some massage spas have opened. You think a full body massage, head to toe, is too risky now? Business is slow. My suburb has a few Covid casualties so far. I am healthy-- brave and a good massage really helps rejuvenate me, helps my back, tension too. It's a rare physical pleasure. (It is not covered by insurance.) Big City nearby the odds of infection is around 01% in a hundred. (I asked 2 Chinese if they are cleaning more and they did not seem to know the word clean. Hard to believe.) Also, how about public pools? They are closed here but 2 are open, at a great distance. Would you go?
