Patience practiced by only one per cent of B.C. population during pandemic

Those choosing to travel have no one to blame but themselves for COVID exposure

Ninety-nine per cent of the B.C. population is impatient and one per cent is patient.

The patient ones are the people that are staying home from travelling this year because of the COVID-19 virus.

They know that COVID-19 will be gone one day, and then and only then will they decide to travel again.

Then we have the impatient people that just because we are in a pandemic, there are no ifs, ands, and ors about staying home. Their minds are set on travelling.

These people have decided to travel B.C. staying in hotel/motel accommodation and campsites.

These people have no one to blame except themselves if they find themselves infected with the COVID-19 virus.

They fail to realize about the amount of recent escalating COVID-19 cases since they have decided to start travelling.

The 99 per cent of these impatient people should see a psychologist first, before ever thinking about taking a holiday this year.

The one per cent of the patient people know that patience is the greatest victory in life, and being patient is keeping them healthy in a COVID-19 pandemic.
