63 in hospital now in BC, up 22 from a week ago, although only 97 new cases today, and no deaths so that's good.

Yep, all this fuss over nothing. There are plenty of things we do each day that we have a higher chance of dying from then COVID. That university professor who called it the "COVID Fake emergency" was right.

Long-term care homes in Ontario are reporting new outbreaks as case numbers spike;
"In Ontario, 20 long-term care homes have already reported COVID-19 outbreaks. West End Villa in Ottawa is the hardest hit, with six deaths in the past two weeks and 47 residents and 11 staff members testing positive."

the Covid figures are climbing in Ontario. A few weeks ago they hovered around just 100 per day, during the last week they have shot up to over 300. It will be interesting to see what happens with schools. Many have only been back a week, here in Toronto state schools are still closed.

I wouldn't' go so far as to call it 'nothing'. It is something, and I would not like my Mum & Dad to catch it.

Hindsight is always 20/20, and when world leaders look back on 2020 I am sure that the long term impact of shutting the world down for 3-4 months was worse than the virus itself.
Missed hospital operations, suicides, drug overdoes, mental health issues, kids missing out on School, losing your business, losing your job, domestic abuse at home while in quarantine, running out of toilet paper the list goes on and on.

Did governments do the right thing? I think they did. We couldn't just stand around and do nothing with infections increasing.
Until a vaccine is found, think of a mask as your vaccine and open up the world again.

As much as I dislike masking (and have doubts over its effectiveness) i'd be cool with that.

BC is seeing some of the highest daily cases we have seen since this whole thing started.

And that's the problem with restrictions - when they work as intended, people come and say what was all the fuss over.

Most likely due to better testing.

Got an email from Air Canada today, they seem to be trying anything possible to get people to take international trips.

Book a round trip international ticket between today and Oct 31, they will throw in at no additional cost, COVID emergency quarantine and medical insurance. They say it's the most extensive geographical coverage included by a Canadian airline for Canadian residents, covers every outside of Canada destination they fly too, all tickets including aero plan award tickets are eligible.

They end the email with

We hope this new insurance, combined with Air Canada CleanCare+, our industry-leading biosafety measures, and our flexible change and cancellation policies, gives you peace-of-mind for your future international travel.

No doubt.


despite more testing being done, the positive rate is still a fair bit lower which is a good sign I think.
