I suppose it depends on what one considers widespread and whether the tests are people tested or include repeats.

I see from https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/testing that it's hitting a million a day. What's that about 1 person in 60 each day. If it's everyone once that takes about two months to get around everyone
All the adults in our household - currently numbering six, have each been tested several times over, myself included.
Well that would make sense if it was symptom or potential exposure related as everyone should get tested. If it's simply part of keeping tabs on things then your six are having my 14's share

How are the deaths/hospitalization numbers?

We wont eradicate it at this point, if the vaccines keep people from ending up in hospital and prevents deaths, than the vaccines are doing their job.

The US is seeing increase in cases in just about every state, Los Angeles County is bringing back mask mandate due to increasing cases there. 1,500 new cases were reported in Los Angeles on Thursday, in mid June they hit a low of 210 cases in a day, and its steadily increased since then.

Breakthrough cases in the US are also climbing.

Canada has a higher % vaccinated, so maybe we wont follow the same trend as the US.

Low compared to previously but increasing.

They certainly are and it's much earlier than we all expected.
But the Delta is rampant in the UK, doubling every two weeks, with new infections expected to hit 100,000 daily in August when it was only a few thousand a few weeks ago.
The Beta variant doesn't spread as quickly as Delta but is thought to be more resistant to the vaccines.

The problem with Delta spreading so quickly is the potential for other variants developing more quickly, just as Delta and Beta themselves appeared.

So it appears a segment of society who don't want to be vaccinated and believe God will save them or it's God's will are now leaving Southern Manitoba and heading towards Mexico and other South American countries like Paraguay and Bolivia.

Can you leave your Canadian passports at the border and inform the CRA that you will no longer be claiming your GST rebates, child allowance and any other benefit you claim.

Along with the physical symptoms of long covid, there's a pronounced dumbing down we hadn't been told about.
"The level of underperformance was also dependent on the severity of illness in the group who had COVID-19 during the pandemic. The study said those who had been placed on a ventilator during the pandemic exhibited the greatest cognitive deficits, so much so that it equated to a seven-point drop in IQ in a classic intelligence test."

Strange decision, could be due to the spiraling number of cases in Alberta.

Compared to the number of cases in Florida, California and others I would say Alberta is doing pretty good.

At one point California got really low case wise, with several provinces higher in our spring wave which was later than theirs and they had more vaccinated than we did at the time.

Can't really compare California to just a single province due to vast population differences, California has slightly more people than all of Canada, but I think Canada will in the next decade have more people.

However, it seems that the IQ drop was experienced by those, that despite all the evidence to contrary, still ardently support him. Good Old Bozza etc.

A temporary mask mandate for the next 14 days has been declared for the Central Okanagan, with effect at midnight tonight for all indoor public places. This includes Kelowna, Lake Country and Peachland.

It is because of a Covid-19 outbreak in the area.

It will be followed by further mandates as needed, such as business closures.
