For Canadian Craig Lee, possibly the worst symptom of the new coronavirus came on a bus that took him to a Japanese quarantine centre. There’s really no need to panicBut for some Canadians who contracted SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen has been little more than an inconvenience. “We felt perfectly fine, perfectly normal,” said Rose Yerex, 66, of Port Dover, Ont., who like Lee was infected on the Diamond Princess ship that became an inadvertent incubator for the virus. But Lee said he heard that 80 per cent of the cruisers who tested positive were asymptomatic like him, Yerex and her husband. Lee said his experience tells him that Canadians should be vigilant and follow the guidance of public-health authorities, but not panic.
