The Spanish second wave plateaued through August and September at around the peak level of the Spanish first wave, and yet even today, allowing for 4-5 weeks of lag, the fatalities in Spain are barely 1/6th of those in the first wave, and I could make an argument (visual analysis of the charts) that it might be as little as 1/8th, depending on how you average out the daily bars on the deaths chart.

335 cases today, outbreak declared at La Casa resort in West Kelowna. Seven people who attended a multi-household rental event between Oct. 23-26 have tested positive for the virus.

I wish they would let my wife work from home, it's a small office but people coming and going all day, and you never know what co-workers do on their time off.

Went over 400 today. 425 to be exact.

Mostly in Fraser Health but Vancouver Coastal Health is rising too.

" 268 or about 63 per cent are located in the Fraser Health region, which has become the epicentre of the second wave of B.C.'s COVID-19 pandemic. Another 126 are in the Vancouver Coastal Health region."

18 new cases in Interior Health, 104 active cases.


Healthcare system still doing okay, and not needing to cancel elective procedures yet.

There is concern about healthcare workers becoming ill and have to isolate.

580 contact tracers been hired with a goal of 800.

New dashboard here where you can compare COVID stats of BC to other parts of Canada and around the world. Very interesting to compare.

Always nice to have comparisons.

Ontario seems to be hovering around 1K cases. Some days a little more,,.some a little less. Ontario’s population is 3 times that of BC...approx 15M vs 5M.

Interesting that Alberta is struggling with contact tracing and is limiting who it contacts leaving the rest up to individuals and i quote:Beginning Nov. 6, AHS will temporarily change their method of notifying close contacts of positive cases.

Under the new process, health-care workers will call the close contacts of cases in the following three priority groups:
  • health-care workers
  • minors (parents will be notified if their child has been exposed in the school setting)
  • individuals who live or work within congregate or communal facilities
Anyone who is outside one of these groups and tests positive for coronavirus is asked to contact all individuals they believe they came into close contact with on their own.

"Event organizers will also still be directed to notify event attendees of an exposure and workplaces will be informed by AHS of a case and directed to send out the notification to employees."

Didn't stop Bojo telling us last week( 2 hours later than he planned too).

Think Trump received some bad news on a Saturday today, mid round of golf!

Canada seems to be on somewhat of a steady upward trend for overall cases, double in daily cases over the last month, which is roughly double the previous month - guess the question is as everyone moves further indoors, are current infection growth rates acceptable (circa 12000 daily cases by January) - or is more required? I guess even some some of the smaller cities are only a house party, large family gathering or the like away from an explosion of cases.
