I know one thing for sure. If everybody would social distance themselves we wouldn't have so much spread of the virus.

Just like the biker rally in Sturgis, south Dakota. they said around 250,000 showed up in that small town of 7,000 people. Now they know the virus was carried back to other states when they left. They didn't care about carrying it back to others.

Hong Kong scientists just reported that a person who caught covid and recovered has apparently now caught a different strain of covid. They are worried that covid will follow the path of flu in that a different vaccine will be needed for every strain of covid . Flu mutates frequently and the big worry is that covid may be the same.

We shouldn't be surprised, mutation is survival. Just look at antibiotic resistance.

That is worrying. UK here and my GF lives about a 10min ride away from the airport there so at least shes not in crowded Iloilo city. Shes always on point with it but with worry I keep reminding her to mask up, visor up, never to touch face outside the house & carry the hand sanitizer. She did tell me jeepneys are limited to 8 passengers, 4 on each side and that they wont let on people who arent wearing masks.

I dont see tourists allowed in for at least another year. Maybe more

hey katanadv20

I agree with you about the tourist not being allow in for another year at least. I have given up hope ever to return to the Philippines. I wanted to relocate back there in the Davao area where I was before. those plans are out the window.

Perhaps I got a solution idea for you guys, who are elsewhere than in the Philippines and have a Filipina gf allready and are ready to marry her.

Is there any chance to marry at DISTANCE from each other?

If so, then you can get a 13a and get to the Philippines

hey Lunkan---I just want to come back there as a tourist. I never want to get married again. I been through that crap. I see some news on here that maybe in the 2nd half of 2021 they will allow international travel again. It will depend on how the virus is by then.

My guess is that many places will open up as soon as there is a vaccine available, it won't matter too much how effective it is, it will be used as the justification to open the world economy again.

However my best guess is that the vaccine will not be in widespread distribution until mid 2021 so I would not put too much on being able to freely travel before then.

Now that the news is not blasting all over the tv channels things have calmed down and people are getting back to their lives. I understand the seriousness of this virus but the world has survived going through stuff like this before. Just like the Spanish Flu in 1918 that killed millions, not thousands.

We have more people die each year here from the flu season then this virus. We don't have all the media outlets alarming people with that problem.

I AM LIKE TRUMP!!!!! I HATE THE NEWS PEOPLE!!!!!!

Some government officials have said previously that for now we need to learn
to live with the virus. Practice all safety guidelines and get back to work, open schools, and businesses.
