Coronavirus & More Info...

Did you read Life with Lynnie (LwL). yesterday?

If you didn't, then please read it now, before you read the rest of today's blog entry.

If you did read yesterday's LwL entry, then you will know that an article I shared mentioned about how some Canadians who had been in China, flew home to Canada, and were held to be investigated regarding Coronavirus... the disease that has been happening in China.

Here is an article by ctvnews.ca that is entitled, Cruise lines bar people with Chinese, Hong Kong or Macau passportshttps://www.ctvnews.ca/mobile/world/cruise-lines-bar-people-with-chinese-hong-kong-or-macau-passports-1.4803116.

Here is some that this article stated (I copied/pasted):

Two U.S.-based cruise lines are forbidding people with Chinese, Hong Kong or Macau passports from boarding their cruise ships, according to company statements released Friday.

Norwegian Cruise Lines and Royal Caribbean International released statements as the coronavirus continues to spread. The companies say the new policies apply to anyone -- guest or crew member -- with these passports, regardless of residency or where they visited last.

The policies also prohibit boarding from travellers or crew members who visited Hong Kong or Macau within the last 15 to 30 days.
Wow!

Here is an article by cbc.ca that is entitled, China reports record surge in daily coronavirus deathshttps://www.cbc.ca/news/world/china-coronavirus-who-feb-12-1.5460701.

Here is a bit of what was stated in that article (I copied/pasted):

  • China says the number of new cases reported in 24-hour period jumped to 14,840.
  • Number of deaths in mainland China leapt by a record 242, health commission says.
  • WHO warns epidemic could still 'go in any direction.'
  • WHO gives disease a name: COVID-19.
  • More cases confirmed on Diamond Princess ship, while 2nd vessel — which has no confirmed cases — will dock in Cambodia after being turned away at other ports.
  • Risk to people in Canada remains low, top public health official says.
The death toll in China's central Hubei province from a coronavirus outbreak leapt by a record 242 on Thursday, taking the total number of deaths in the province so far to 1,310, the province's health commission said.

The new deaths were more than twice the prior provincial daily record of 103 set on Monday.


The number of new cases in Hubei, the epicentre of the outbreak, also jumped to 14,840 as the commission said that it had begun including people who are diagnosed through new clinical methods from Thursday.

It also said it had revised its old data and suspected cases. The latest death toll included over 100 clinically diagnosed cases.
Wow!

To me, it's amazing that so many people are suffering from Coronavirus happening, even though they might NOT have that disease.

Yes, they are experiencing troubles.

Thinking about that, made me think about John 16:33, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.".

Amen! These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. 

I am thankful that Jesus said what was stated in today's Bible verse!

Yes, He overcame the world!

He gave His life and physically died on the cross... to do what God the Father wanted Him to do, to pay the price for the sin of the world, for all who would believe upon Him.

I am truly thankful, for I gained salvation and everlasting life by trusting in/believing upon Him.

Have you?

If you haven't yet... do it... now!

If you do, you will be blessed... forever.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
