Coming soon. This Sunday.* To a screen near you.
* That's Saturday 9PM & midnight replay, US Eastern Time.
Looks like Pastor Ricky Sarthou will be preaching.
"Many of us long to see lasting change happen in our lives and around the world. The question is, where do we begin? ... Catch the livestream on August 22 ... 9am ... https://youtu.be/NaPx4YwL_wU "
Back home after another errand day. Mostly just sitting outside the doctor's office and groceries. Don't wanna go out for the next 2~3 weeks.
then switching to the stricter #EnhancedCommunityQuarantine on August 6, for 2 weeks. No dining in, only takeout & deliveries. Curfew hours 8pm-4am. Only select people can go out. There'll probably be checkpoints.
We gotta do what we gotta do. 🤷
Earlier, #Google sent me a warning on my phone about an #earthquake in #Mindoro. My location is far but within the affected region. The message got to me seconds before the earthquake reached my current location, which happened about a minute after it started in Mindoro. Interesting. 🤔
On the other hand...
Haven't been out 3 weeks now.
Looking forward to Monday #errands.
Gonna get some sun ☀️, groceries 🛒, meds 💊 and do some walking 🚶🏻♀️.
It is what it is. 😐 Though some businesses will surely not survive, I hope the people all do, somehow. 🙏
On a very sad, serious note...
They're willing & able to spend on a private hospital.
Nada. No room.
Go ahead, world. 😠 Take it lightly. Watch the hospitals fill up and reject your loved ones when they most need medical care.
Ya think all your complaining makes you smart?
There are good reasons for rules and precautions. The authorities are not stupid, however we dislike/doubt/accuse them. Doctors know better about germs than you do.
A graph from the COVID-19 Philippine Situationer, 15 March 2021, showing Confirmed Cases By Date Of Onset Of Illness (Nationwide) and part of a PDF page showing the Rt value from 2 weeks ago at > 1. Ideal Rt is < 1. 😶
I do NOT like this trend. 😖
So we can exercise our brains a bit and consider that maybe he didn't have the virus before* he left his own country, before* he got quarantined*. Maybe he picked it up at the other country's airport or maybe even at the quarantine facility.
And yet they write the news and pass it around as if that guy indeed brought the virus into that other country.
Philippine COVID-19 cases bulletin
Not good. Numbers for new cases going up. 📈
New cases are over 3k now.
6.6% active cases
1.7k tested positive out of the
19.9k people tested yesterday
Oops. That Rt value was from 2 weeks ago but looking at the graphs the actual trend now* is ⬆️.
Possible reasons for the ⬆️ trend: people getting too relaxed, getting careless; new variants (no proof here, just 1 more possible thing that may contribute to new cases).
Haven't been paying attention to the #news the past few months. Must keep myself updated. ☝️
"Late February is usually... when the temperature in Baguio City starts to rise...
this year... Baguio City has recorded the lowest temperature...
Last month, the lowest temperature recorded was 9.4°C... February 21, 2021, at 5:00 AM PAGASA Baguio recorded the lowest temperature at 9°C"
Suddenly I had reason to post another #video. As you'll see, I totally didn't plan this. 😱
