How many of you aren't going due to SARS?

just curious how many people aren't going to go and there are too many posts on the others to sift through. To start with I know nobody out of my cosplay group is going.

It is really creapy.

When I got home from Sakura Con, I began to get a bad sore throat, congested lungs and a dry cough, a conjected head, I ached all over, then I got a low grade fever (100F). Since I had contact with people that had flown in from Asia as well, my University did not allow me to attend class until my temperature was normal. I was also under orders to come into the Heath Center through the BACK DOOR if my fever went up to around 101.5/102 or over (which it never did).

I'm mostly better now, and I tried to be realistic about it, but when you are told to not go to class, it's creapy!

I'm not going, but it was decided weeks before the illustrious people at the CDC issued its SARS warning. Basically I have no money, and don't want to drive 7 hours alone.

BIG RANT.

sorry, this is kind of stupid though. people not going because of sars is RIDICULOUS.

obviously no one listens or is too stupid to read numbers when its been said 1000x that there is LESS THAN 1% CHANCE OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC CONTRACTING THE DISEASE.

that is unless youve had direct contact with a relative/friend who has been to china etc recently and im assuming a lot of you HAVENT. -_-;;

0.00005% of people in the GTA have had the disease and most ( if not all ) of them were IN DIRECT CONTACT with someone who had been to asia or has had the disease.

the WHO is stupid for putting a ban on toronto and people are stupid for being so gullible.

if i sound mean, im not trying to be, but this whole situation is getting SO OUT OF HAND by people who are too ignorant to see its NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL. >_<;;

more people die from the flu and air pollution. -_-;; might as well lock us ALL up and put a ban on the entire world, why don't you.

as long as you dont breathe in other peoples sneezes and coughs or touch their mucous n then lick ur hands, ur pretty much safe. unless you plan on doing that, im assuming its very safe to attend anime north.

*goes to eat cookies*

Limeyaku: I guess I could say that I'm indirectly not going because of SARS, (becos of group arrangement or lack thereof) and I agree that it's gotten out of hand.
WHY does it have to be confined to the chinatown area? now I can't even go to the pacific mall to do pity shopping ;_; ;_;

yay limeyaku~~ *agrees completely*

>P

yeah, so i'm mean to all the paranoid people out there. but god, i LIVE here, so i just see it all as bloody ridiculous and bitterly resent the huge loss of numbers we're gonna get this year to american cons who already HAVE enough money.

and the first year we managed to get a big name seiyuu too!! T_T;;; *is just waiting dejectedly for anime north to get a letter of cancellation from Midorikawa if they haven't already* >_<

damn you world media! *cries*

Maybe more people won't go because they'll be anticipating Midorikawa not going.....and then the autograph line-up will be shorter... Bwahahahaha.....

I really, really hope he doesn't cancel...the con is in Mississauga, basically, and not Toronto anyway, so......^_^ *does Midorikawa summoning dance* oops, this is so off-topic.

mmhmM!! *agrees with limeyaku^_~*

another way to put it:

you have better chances of being hit by a speeding TRUCK than you have of contracting SARS without direct contact to the people who have it. annnnnd the Canadian Government is doing an EXCELLENT job of containing the virus.

THERE HAS NOT BEEN A NEW CASE IN 8 DAYS PEOPLE. EIGHT. DAYS.
half the battle is won.

Also, as Mage said, AnimeNorht is *NOOOOT* in Toronto. Its is on the border of Mississauga (who had only ONE case) and Etobicoke (who had NOOOO CASES)...so..whts the fuse? (._.) goddamn media. goddamn american media. goddamn WHO.
*mutters* >_<;

*shrugs*
more merchandise for me to whorage muahahaha^_^

I have one girl in my group not going anymore due to her mom scared stiff of her getting SARS. >_<

*strangles SARS in physical form*

I don't think people are afraid of getting SARS they are afriad of dying from it. At least that's what i think. that's the only fear I have about SARS. It's EXACTLY like the flu in every way. I see no differences. So sometimes I wonder how many people in quarantine have the regualar flu? >_>

One of the girls in my group has therest of the group scared stiff cuz she said that people with SARS will be at AN cuz they don't want to stay in quarantine. O_o

I'm sure some con-goers will be a bit edgy. I just hope that when someone coughs that people don't instantly scream out "SARS!" -_- I've had enough of that in my school/

guys before this gets more out of hand and even more blown out of proportion, AnimeNorth has set up an info-section on the topic. as well as a list of their precautionary methods:

*points* go there to read, its really well put together and well worth the read to put your minds at ease ^_^
