Clearly, COVID-19 has changed the world. I wrote a few stories, for example #covid19 Safety Tips. This story discusses safety tips from World Health Organization (WHO). In addition, What On What’s Good covered how the sports and entertainment industries are impacted by the coronavirus. There are new release dates for Blockbuster Movies. Events cancelled for instance MLB Baseball, NHL, NBA, NCAA March Madness, the Canadian Academy and the Junos. In addition, there is a state of emergency in Ontario.  COVID-19…My advice…Stay Home. Save lives.



The world is facing quite a challenge. Economies everywhere impacted. The world is coming together. Most importantly, governments and organizations across industries and sectors are assisting with this matter. The outpouring of global solidarity is phenomenal. The World Health Organization (WHO) is leading and coordinating the global effort. WHO supports countries by preventing, detecting and responding to the pandemic. People and organizations can help fight COVID-19 by donating through the COVID-Solidarity Response Fund.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that may cause illness in animals or humans.  In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develop difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
