South African variant found, the person has no travelled and has not been linked to anyone who travelled, investigation continues in trying to figure out how the person was exposed to it.

They probably lied.

Like the two on Vancouver Island, who said they didn’t have contact with their relative who returned from the UK during their quarantine...

You don’t want Covid. Someone at work was an asymptomatic spreader and gave it to 8 of us, along with their own wife, who sadly died over Christmas 😢

I passed it on to my wife, but we’ve both recovered, apart from still being left very tired all the time and the odd dizzy spell (which went on for 2 weeks after I was better).

Sorry to hear about your co-workers wife, that must be tough. Glad your out of the woods but sucks you still feeling down and under the weather.

My sister was an asymptomatic carrier, she showed 0 symptoms and had no known contact with anyone who was positive, but her husband 1 of 2 kids, and most of her office are linked to her, fortunately nobody in the cluster linked to her died. Her husband was hospitalized, then on oxygen for a couple more weeks. came close to going to ICU a couple times, lost 100 pounds since then, and has what doctors believe will be long term if not permanent lung damage and hasn't worked since as his job was in a warehouse and he has trouble breathing and some other issues that don't mesh with working in a warehouse.

Their kid that was ill was very mild, basically just a runny nose, the youngest 11 or 12 never showed symptoms or tested positive so as far as they know the youngest never had it.

I pretty much hermit at home and rarely venture out, I don't want to end up with it, and my wife is high risk, so yea we pretty much limit our outings to one day per week just for some essentials.

Here's the Sask update. They were showing distribution of active cases on the news this morning, and the northern communities are way ahead. Overcrowded housing the prime culprit, and that's why vaccinating up there is a priority. After the most at risk and front line all get theirs, people over 70 are next in line which puts me in the tier after that, the over 65's.

This certainly wont help to speed up vaccine administration in Canada in the short term, Pfizer is reducing its production in Belgium so they can expand their manufacturing capacity, in the short term over the next 4 weeks Canada will see a 50% cut in doses, with week of January 25 only planned to received 25% of what was expected.

Long term the slow down in production will allow Pfizer to increase capacity.

Canada has tried to negotiate an alternative with Pfizer so a delay would not occur asking if Canada could receive doses from the plant in Michigan, however the doses produced their are allotted to the US domestic supply.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/pfi...ries-1.5874645




While not approved yet, Johnson & Johnson is reported to have hit some snags in manufacturing which could put them as much as 2 months behind schedule.

I can't find much of anything as to AstraZeneca in Canada or US, neither have approved it yet.

Not according to the BBC data, which uses Johns Hopkins as its source. It's near the top though.

The graph I shared was data from the last 7 days, that may explain the difference and huge increase.
