Some Thoughts About the Corona Virus

I think this doctor's mask from the Great Bubonic Plague captures how scary the Corona Virus may seem to some people.

My wife had to cancel an appointment for her back pains with a neurosurgeon who practices in Philadelphia. It was not worth the risk travelling to a large city hospital. The receptionist said they had many cancellations.

In some ways the Corona Virus Epidemic reminds me of the Bubonic Plague. Here's some information I found on the web:

The Black Death, also known as the PestilenceGreat Bubonic Plague, the Great Plague or the Plague, or less commonly the Black Plague, was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history resulting in the deaths of an estimated 75 to 200 million people in Eurasia, peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351.[1][2][3] The bacterium Yersinia pestis

This was a bacteria. Today's Corona is a virus which can be just as deadly.

Here is a good link:  Differences Between Bacteria and Viruses

Another good link:  Do I Need An Antibiotic? Know the Difference Between Viral and Bacterial Infections

I wonder if they also ran out of masks; just joking.

I pray the Corona Virus Epidemic (or Pandemic) ends soon.

Never Knew This About Tumbleweed

Just have to share this video I found on the Miss Cellania Weblog.  

My Storm Glass Has a Clump In It

A short time after I wrote this last week the clump fell to the bottom.

I'm going to use my wife's hair dryer to heat the liquid until all of it dissolves. Then it will have a new start. I think it does not actually predict anything but it's fun to watch.
