No new deaths today in BC and very low number of new cases, so that's a plus. Hope the trend continues.

I wonder if BC Government will extend the rent subsidy for those who qualify?

CERB alone wont cover the rent for a lot of renters or will cover the rent but then leave nothing for food.

Where is the social distancing outrage that we would have had a few weeks ago?

All this protesting during COVID makes me shake my head. I get that people need to protest, but Black and Asians are more at risk than whites. Next couple of weeks could be nasty if they don't watch out.

Am thinking to start a new protest movement CORONA VIRUS MATTERS (CVM) for all those who feel that Corona is being marginalised and denied opportunity to thrive. Maks will be prohibitted and particpants encouraged to chant in close proximity. If there's a statue of Florence Nightingale around, perhaps it can be pulled down. That kind of thing.

It appears Covid 19 is no longer of any importance, I understand the initial protest, but now its completely divorced from the the iniitial issue, how can there not be a huge spike after all this?

However on the other hand if there isn't a spike after all this, its clearly telling us something.... that maybe a lot more people have immunity to it than we first thought, the virus is mutating and is not as infectious as it first was, or maybe its simply dying out?

I'm really confused by the mixed messages.

March/April - Stay indoors and don't go out unless it is essential
May - Go outside and social distance, no mask required
June - Go outside but wear a mask

Do you think the gestation period is no longer in effect because this has been going on for so long? If there is going to be a spike it should be starting soon.

I always thought the issue was not the number of infections, but the number of deaths. People getting infected isn't really the issue its that those infected might infect those that might die. Those infected do not overwhelm the system, its those that have severe symptoms/die that are the issue, isn't it?

Well obviously the number of deaths is important , but the more infections more potential to overwhelm the system and also more deaths.? Plus the fact that it seems to affect everyone differently.... no one really knows what its going to do to them as an individual if they contract it....unless of course its starting to mutate into a lesser potent form of it self now?

I would still think maintaining the strict social distancing rule is still very important until we know otherwise....unless one is a protester in which case it doesn't seem to be important then.

The fact that "those infected might infect those that might die" rather proves the point that infections are the issue. Beyond that, the long term effects of having Covid-19 are not yet know, and there are reports that simply having the disease may compromise future health. I think the response should be beyond maintaining (healthcare) system capacity, it should be to contininue to limit infection.

I think people's response to the pandemic very much depends upon how they are being affected personally. If one is able to maintain one's previous income and doesn't have young children, the fact that the lockdown is happening is likely to be a minor inconvenience. However, those that have no income, or an income that is being provided by whatever government, who are having to work from home while also trying to continue their children's education with no end in sight, are not likely to see it as a minor inconvenience.

Fortunately for me, I am in the first group. I am able to recognise how those in the second group are affected. I also note how, all around the world, those under 60, for the most part, are not affected too greatly when they are infected. I appreciate that there are exceptions but, as a vaccine appears to be a long time away, I don't see any particular end in sight.

I know people all over the world. I do not know of anyone that has been infected, nor does anyone I know know of anyone that has been infected. As I have said before, I have clients that are practicing doctors, all of whom have informed me that, in and around Calgary at least, from a medical perspective, it is nowhere near the issue the politicians would have us believe it is.

History will, of course, determine whether the economic damage that is being done is justified and the next few months, as restrictions are lifted, will be very informative.
