Yes that’s very good akulivik, be prepared. Hope it never comes, but live as thou it’s already in the community. All through Nunavik, that’s the opportunity that we have, live as thou it’s already here. But many people will not , or cannot participate in such perceptions of preparation. For reasons of not understanding. Like if it’s not in town, it’s not in town. No anticipation of it coming. Everything we do now, will be reflected in a few weeks, a month! Next month, this fall. We’re behind trying to catch up with beating the virus, and in another way, we lucky in our country that we are guided to be ahead in many aspects of prevention. It’s all in our behaviour.
