Data suggests more people died in the first 10 months of the pandemic in BC than died from influenza in the 10 years between 2009 and 2019.

Revelstoke a small town in BC has an outbreak, the source they do not know, but per capita the small town has one of the highest case loads at the moment.

I see Quebec is going to have a curfew from 8pm to 5am.

The numbers in Ontario are steadily climbing. 3,519 cases yesterday, 89 deaths. 1 in 5 kids under 13 tested positive during December. School openings are already delayed...another announcement due this afternoon. Looks like the kids will be learning from home for quite a bit longer.

Care home in Sussex. 13 of 27 residents dead since Xmas. The smaller descriptive stats do seem to have more resonance than the national stats (1100+ deaths in UK yesterday).

The legal consequences could result in the end of the private care sector.

Mind you, there are one or two posters who would say it doesn't matter because they would have died next Tuesday anyway.

The government run ones in Canada don't seem much if any better than the private ones.

Not sure what the solution is to prevent spread in care homes, in BC they still don't know why some homes seem to have more spread than others with in theory all should be following the same protocols. The staff have and always will be the weak link in the chain of prevention, only way seems to be to lock staff and residents in and nobody in or out, but that isn't realistic.

I seem to remember a while back someone in Revelstoke complaining that the motel parking lots were full of Albertan trucks with their snow mobiles. Tiny town with big winter activities if you like snow. Of course technically we shouldn't be travelling but unless they make it law and enforce it who is listening?

A few big Christmas parties might push the numbers like that. My first memories of Revelstoke are the motel we stayed in one night when I was a kid. Maybe $8/night, light housekeeping so stove, kitchen sink and fridge, and this eerie red glowing cone in the sawmill across the highway, burning all the trim all night and stinking up the town. I got run out of Revelstoke once too, but that's another story.

I don't know what it's like in Canada but here in the UK there are plenty of TV adverts for summer holidays and plenty of celebs posting photos from Dubai and plenty of idiots still keen to go on holiday... it's absolutely mental. What is wrong with people that, in the midst of all this utter chaos, all they can think about is jetting off on holiday?
