Remember last week how I posted that COVID-19 had left the province. Well after over two weeks without any cases and after all those who were infected had recovered the numbers started to climb again. At first it was a mystery as to where they contacted it but then after investigating the story came out. All of it could have been completed avoided but a very irresponsible doctor is the cause of this spread. A doctor from the northern part of the province went to another province and did not self isolate when he got back from his trip. He went to work at the hospital and continued to see patients and worked with other staff for two weeks before he was tested and tested positive. Since then a number of people have tested positive and two are in intensive care. Those infected included his 3 year old child and two people in their 90's including his own mother. There will be many more in the coming days, many of them health care workers. This is quite a ways from where I live but it did say that he had traveled to many different hospital over those two weeks and of course all those people would have had other people they were in contact with during that time. It is a developing story and very sad and frustrating because it could have all been avoided. As a health professional he knew better. Charges will be laid and he has been suspended from his job. It is just terrible but it goes to show how quickly it can spread when precautions are not taken. Regulations in place for a reason.

Shame on him, especially someone with so much knowledge about how sick people can get with this virus, and yet, he did not even follow the simple rule to self-isolate. Shame shame. I had a young guy get too close to me while I was out today, and I raised my hand and said- you need to give me 2 metres. Such silly actions can land anyone regretting going out.
