Pretty much. More recent cases seem to be a lot of 20-30 age group, so I assume that age group being healthier overall probably leading to less severe illness.

Ha ha exactly. Yet another obvious exposure place that quite frankly amazes me how it manages to stay open and within the guidelines.

BC plans to have K-12 go back to school in September with some changes.
  • Most students from kindergarten to Grade 12 will return to school in the fall, divided into cohorts or "learning groups."
  • Elementary and middle school learning groups will have a maximum of 60 students.
  • Secondary school learning groups will have up to 120 students.
  • Provincial government is putting up $45.6 million to help ensure safety measures.
Also increased cleaning, hand washing stations & availability of masks.

Alberta seems a bit messy.

"304 cases of COVID-19 over the weekend, the number of active cases has risen to 1,430 and eight additional deaths of Albertans have been reported"

Re: Coronavirus
 
Any idea of how many case are "serious"? :unsure:

UK 302,000 cases, 46,000 deaths ~ 15% case deaths
Canada 115,00 cases 8,900 deaths ~ 8% case deaths

Unscientific (as cases are hard to count) say about 1:10 ratio of death once 'cased'.
Would like to see a breakdown by age category.

You can scroll down and there is deaths by age group for Canada.

https://health-infobase.canada.ca/co...-cases.html#a7

Looks like

71% were 80 or older.
18% 70 to 79
7.1% 60 to 69
2.3% 50 to 59
0.6% 40 to 49
0.2 % 30 to 39
0.1% 20 to 29

1 death in the under 19 group.

The link also shows total deaths per age group 49 and under no group has over 49 with the 49 deaths being 40 to 49.

Makes sense as long term care homes were hit hard in Canada and mostly made up of older people.

Thanks, that's helpful. Age 50 seems to be the dividing line. So for aged 50-70 if you are confirmed Covid it's about a 1:100 chance of death.

Separate households will be banned from meeting indoors from midnight tonight in Greater Manchester, East Lancashire and parts of West Yorkshire after a rise in coronavirus cases.

Doesn't sound good.

It does not. :unsure:

It doesn't extend to shutting pubs and restaurants I don't believe - and whilst the majority of cases are from generally non pub going communities- can see people just using that as an excuse to go the pub/restaurant to socialise or worse - go to a pub in a neighbouring area to socialise.

Strangely our figures don't look too bad - 846 new cases today I believe, whilst not brilliant, its not exactly a number spiralling out of control or a number that has grown significantly, the numbers have been floating around that for some time with peaks and troughs ( 2/3 day averages seem much of a muchness over the last 4 weeks and are certainly lower than those in June or May).

I really don't understand the whole thing now - if cases are truly "out of control" in those areas its time to close the gyms, pubs etc, essential shopping only again. not keep that all open but not let me go round my mums!!

I suppose the logic is that if an individual goes to an external venue, there will be some PPE/SD measures in place, and it is simply that individual (or small group). But if it's visiting other households, the measures are less likely to be in place, and an individual could infect a number of people in the house. Clearly there are exceptions, one person visiting another in homes is not as impactful as a group going to pub which is flled with other groups, but I think on balance there is a logic to locking down households. And who knows, maybe pubs/gyms are next.
