Record high 4,456 cases in Ontario yesterday. Mobile units are being sent to high risk areas to begin vaccinating under 18s. Many of the sick are now younger people.

It does sound serious out there. I looked at the cases chart and it seems to spike in January and again now. My thought is WTF do so many not understand the concept of a highly transmissable virus. Here in Blighty a major easing of restrictions (shops/pubs etc) happens tomorrow. Hopefully we will not be pursuing a similar pattern, but who knows. The "going out" segment of the population (under 40s) is largely unvaccinated, and even amongst the vaccinated, efficacy is supposedly 70% on the first shot.

People were lining up at 4am this morning for 9 am appointments at one of the mobile units. I don’t get it...surely at 9am only people who have a 9am appointment are call for vaxx. If so why are they lining up at 4 am?

Our numbers per 1M have always been well below most countries. Many people are now walking around unmasked. We are on full lockdown again. I suspect the numbers will rise in the next couple of weeks...fall out from Easter and Spring Break.

For a comparison, California with 39 million people only reported 4,466 new cases yesterday.

Just heard that a multi generational family has the virus. Husband and Wife (mid 30s), daughter (3 yrs old), Wife’s mother and father. They have all tested positive. Husband is in ICU with breathing problems, he will probably be transferred out of area to London, Ont. It is thought he caught it from work...works for a large delivery company. The wife is exhausted and can barely function. The little girl and grandma have no symptoms...she is looking after the girl. The granddad has a temp, aches. They had the vaccine towards the end of March but tested positive a week later.

The Whistler Blackcomb ski resort was shut down by provincial authorities at the end of March after they realised that P1, the highly infectious coronavirus variant traced back to Brazil, was spreading rapidly throughout the community.

The most P1 cases outside of Brazil.

Reading all these reports does make me question the logic of Canada's very strict border arrangements whilst at the same time waving across truck drivers, fruit pickers, cross border workers etc

Looking at some pictures in the media for pub goers that started queueing at midnight it looked like same old story, no distancing, few masks and large crowds and this is only the first few hours. Apparently tomorrow is the most popular day off for many, according to media of course.

Canada benefits by snowbirds having gotten fully vaccinated in the U.S., thus freeing-up doses for fellow Canadians (owing to plainly evident incomoetence in the planning, procurement, & distribution of vaccines by career PH bureaucrats & politicians).

And the viral variants themselves of course differentiate not between border-crossing sapiens, whether "essential" or non.

This article today in Vancouver Sun.

"More than 100 passengers arriving at Vancouver International Airport have refused to quarantine at a government-authorized hotel since the “mandatory” three-day quarantine was introduced on Feb. 22."

"Those people face up to $3,000 a day in fines, Jarbeau said. A three-night stay in a GAA costs around $2,500."

Between Feb. 22 and April 6, almost 176,000 travellers by air and land across Canada were tested for COVID upon arrival. Of those, 2,282 tested positive for COVID-19

The testing margin for error is about 1/1000. As you're supposed to provide a negative test prior to boarding I would question just how genuine some of these pre flight tests were.

Indeed. The fact that the pubs are currentlyrestricted to outdoors is a mitigation (although I don't quite understand the logic of marquees being considered ok). Once indoor dining/drinking is re-opened (mid May) that will be the real test.
