Interesting number there too.

473 yesterday in BC, although I don't know the break down between vaccinated and non-vaccinated.

Found an article that mentions is.

"From Nov. 4 to 10, people who were not fully vaccinated accounted for 61.0 per cent of cases and from Oct. 28 to Nov. 10, they accounted for 68.9 per cent of hospitalizations, according to the province."

90% of those over 12 in BC have 1 dose with 86% fully vaccinated now.


"Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam said in a media briefing that "children under 12 continue to have the highest incidence rates across all age groups."

I missed that data. This is more reassuring about vaccine usefulness

That's what I thought. The Devil's number. But then Toronto is the devil's playground.

The strain of COVID-19 Delta variant AY 4.2 has been found in BC, first identified in UK, for now they beleive vaccines are still effective for Delta's evolution, if if it's spreading more quickly or are making people sicker.

BC expects children aged 5 to 11 to have an approved vaccine ready within 1-2 weeks, just waiting on Health Canada approval.

Much lower overall count today for BC BUT you wonder if this is because testing was way down due to the extreme weather events and many places inaccessible due to flood.

Good point. I would need a few days to a week of consistent numbers, guess we will find out, but I imagine the floods are preventing people from accessing testing sites, and impedeing/slowing down samples to the lab/s.

I wonder if all samples are still going to the LM? They were at one point, not sure if they have spread out labs a little better or if everything still goes to LM for actual lab part.

Public Health Agency Of Canada quietly on November 12th changed their mask reccomendations a bit, "Previous guidance advised Canadians at higher risk of exposure and severe disease "wear a well-fitting, well-constructed non-medical mask that includes a filter layer" or "consider wearing a well-fitting medical mask if one is available."

Looks like they now reccomend only medical masks for certain groups.

711 new cases in Ontario yesterday…worrying that 314 were fully vaccinated.

Tomorrow morning an announcement is expected that 5 - 11 yr olds are to be vaccinated. Vaccinations due to start in approx 1 week, when the vaccine has been received in Ontario.

Not really. As most people are fully vaccinated it's what you'd expect. Would be worrying if these people got seriously ill or died but the vaccine tends to negate these possibilities.

Meanwhile in the Far East...

22 Cases / No hospitalisations presently / 90% of the eligible population is double dosed.

Healthcare system returning to normal following the cyberattack. Oh yes and 20% of the population doesn't have a GP.

Austria is to become the first country in Europe to make COVID-19 vaccines mandatory by law

Sen. Josée Forest-Niesing has died at 56 from COVID complications. While fully vaccinated she had an autoimmune disease that involved her lungs making her more sucesptible, she had been hospitalized in October, and release just a week ago.
