Problem is that the masks that medical services use are N95 masks, the others won't stop the viral microparticals as their filters are to large, and 3M can only make 100 million a month, and about 3rd of production are made in china, all the 3M plant in us can only produce 35m, so not enough masks.plua trump at one point wanted all 3M global production until they likely told him if he did that the plants in other countries would put export bans on them.
Largest manufacturess of masks is china.

Tough times for all of us during this COVID-19 pandemic. Read that in Montreal they've banned gathering until July 2nd. So even if the NHL restarts in June or earlier, the Canadiens would need to find new digs to play home games. Perhaps off island? Either way, looks like hockey in mid-July is the earliest possible return at this point.

I do not believe a tournament format for the NHL Play-offs in a limited number of cities would work as the home team would want to properly profit from their existing home games. A tournament format would mean rental of facilities and lost revenue for a home arena.

What would actually work is an NHL re-start with "pre-season" games played in select designated neutral cities while waiting for all NHL cities to lift guidelines for "no public gathers" and ensure enforcement of public health and safety measures are put in place to allow arenas to be filled safely. Having worked in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo during the SARS outbreak of 2002-03, I can say that screening and checkpoints are key to keeping COVID-19 in check.

This is what I feel strongly about. My personal feeling is that unfortunately, federal governments have already completed their modelling of economic impacts given various scenarios. The US and Canada who I follow closely are working towards the dump debt on the public, keep the banks in control of the general population and the party in office wins while banks and corporations win long-term with everyone owing them money while staying compliant in underpaid desk jobs for years to come. It's a terrible economic play by Governments.

The worst part of all this, the frontline workers in all essential services are going to be taxed heavily down the road because they are the only ones generating earnings these days.

All IMHO.

It's a joke in Miami. Construction sites are open and there's a lack of physical distancing. Makes me sick to see.

In Quebec, this pandemic has exposed a huge F-up in the management of our long term care system where most of the deaths have occurred ... they are mostly Provincial Gov managed.

It begs the question how the Provincial government uses money if there is such a lack of personnel to help Quebec long term care patients compared to other Canadian provinces.

The topper... Quebec government tried to deflect blame to doctors. Sad.

I really find it interesting how COVID-19 is exposing big flaws in our society.

If you notice, banks and construction seem to be sectors that are profiting and allowed to reopen first respectively. That seems interesting that the two areas where money changes hands fluidly behind closed doors are protected and encouraged to restart before all other sectors.

COVID-19 has pulled back the curtain on lots of shady nonsense to be sure. LOL

Interesting findings from Iceland where a company has been tracking genetic predisposition to various illnesses and keep a blood bank of samples of all citizens.

https://www.genengnews.com/news/icelands-aggressive-covid-19-testing-helped-curb-outbreak/

They've essentially been able to trace genetic predisposition to COVID-19 and dive deep into tracing origins of various strains of the virus as it's mutated while making it's way around the world.
