South Korea Says Covid Pandemic ‘in Full Swing’ After an Unconsolable 7 Deaths This Month

The sky is falling!

South Korea’s CDC says the country is in “a grave situation” as the Corona pandemic is now “in full swing”:

“This is a grave situation that could possibly lead to a nationwide pandemic,” Vice Health Minister Kim Gang-lip told a briefing.

Without aggressive contact tracing, the country could experience the types of spikes and continued infections witnessed in the United States and Europe, said KCDC deputy director Kwon Jun-wook.

“Consider the COVID-19 pandemic now to be in full-swing.”

Oh my gosh, that sounds terrible indeed! So are there corpses in the streets? Let’s check:

In total, South Korea has documented 16,346 cases of Covid-19, with 307 deaths resulting from the pandemic. Despite the increase in new cases, the nation has reported only one new coronavirus-related death in the past 24 hours. Seven people have died from Covid-19 since the start of August. 

Ehm, so deaths are actually hovering at near zero at about 0.3 a day. That’s in a country of 50 million and doubtlessly overwhelmingly of the frail who had very little time left as it was.

However, the government warns that if the present rise that has so far risen to 0.3 deaths a day continues 50,000,000 people (who have already been subject to mandatory masking for 6 months now) face home arrest:

If infections continue rising at the current rate or accelerate, authorities say they will likely impose the strictest level of social distancing – closing schools, requiring employees to work from home and limiting gatherings to 10 people.

“Please do not make physical contact. Exchange nods instead of handshakes,” Kwon said. “Refrain from physical contact such as hugging.”

But for now a war on hugs!

No goddamn hugging!

Well, no hugging in public, anyway. I still get hugs any time I want ’em in private from my sweet, attractive Russian wife. :-} Yeah, I know. She’s about my age with two doctorates and fluency in four languages so don’t even go there.

Occasionally, when I can’t get a hug and I don’t have much of anything to do, I can find comfort in a couple of other things.

Grapefruit is a longtime marijuana classic, a heady blend of the hybrid Cinderella 99 and a sativa bred specifically for its grapefruit flavor. With a sativa to indica ratio of 70 to 30, this strain packs a decidedly cerebral punch, with a major mood boost and intense euphoria.

I got a laugh out of this. Some kid on youtube reacting to hearing The Who and Baba O’Riley for the very first time. Heh.

Their delivery of COVID koolaid must have been delayed, but they obviously chugged it all as soon as they got it.

Becoming diabetic or coming down with cancer from drinking it are more likely than drunkenness.
