165 new cases in BC, highest ever single day case count.

The mindset from March to now is interesting, in March 65-70 cases a day had people freaking out, now 100+ a day and growing each week it seems, and it's eh no biggest it still better than the US. Canadian mindset, as long as Canada does better than the US, all is good.

German football team socially distance from opponents, lose 37-0
German amateur side SG Ripdorf/Molzen II sacrificed a tight defence for social distancing as they fielded only seven players as a coronavirus precaution in a 37-0 loss to local rivals SV Holdenstedt II....“We are thankful those seven players volunteered, otherwise the club would have faced a 200-euro fine for abandoning the match,” Ripdorf co-chair Patrick Ristow told ESPN. “That’s a lot of money for us, especially amid the pandemic.”

“When the game kicked off, one of our players passed the ball to the opponent and our team walked to the sidelines,” Ristow said.“The Holdenstedt players did not understand. But we did not want to risk anything. For the rest of the match, our players returned to the field but they only stood on the pitch.”

So long as the deaths continue to remain relatively flat, I'm not freaking out.
We are soon going to be heading into flu season, I expect the daily new cases number will increase until next Spring. It's a shame there isn't a graph for BC that shows regular flu stats to help keep everything into perspective.

6+ month of Disneyland being closed it hitting the City of Anaheim hard.

Expecting a $100 million budget deficit, and unemployment is 15% in the city, higher than during the "great" recession.

Guess that's the downfall of a city being so reliant on just 1 company.

I just finished this article - https://www.vox.com/21435868/coronav...pain-uk-europe - a really good look at what's going on in Europe, with some attempts to explain why. Basically, does a nice job of explaining how the initial virus surge hit the old people with lots of hospitalizations and deaths; then as people started to relax, it spread to the younger folks (with fewer hospitalizations and deaths), and now it's creeping back up the age curve. There's a comment from Spain that they are seeing March all over again, but in slow motion.

Kind of seems like this happening in BC at the moment, early on predominantly older people, we were down into single digit new cases by June, then summer cases started creeping back up, but it was mostly younger people this time around, so hospitalizations and deaths remained low, but the last couple weeks hospitalizations have been creeping up, deaths still on the lower end. Just don't know the age make up of those hospitalized currently.

Nightclubs, banquet halls and bars seemed to be the top 3 places fueling the spread, which is why night clubs and banquet halls have been told to close, and bars have to stop serving at 10p I think it is.

Positive side is we have 1,803 active cases as of Friday at 4:30p but only 59 in hospital, its one of the highest active cases we have reached, but hospitalizations still fairly low which is certainly a positive.

US CDC has updated some of it's COVID info on their website a bit.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...d-spreads.html

Biggest change seems to be the CDC now officially acknowledges that coronavirus often spreads through aerosols.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...ve-updates-us/

They do recommend air purifiers for indoor spaces to reduce particles in the air.

Falls somewhere between spreads more efficiently than influenza but not as efficient as measles.

I have read news articles and seen some pics of empty supermarket shelves in the uk how true i do not know. but here in spain my wife noticed the toilet roll shelf was low and tinned food were a little lower than usual.The rumour mill here is in over drive of another lock down so keep your eyes open when food shopping just incase.But just to add to this the last lock down supermarkets did a great job so no need to panic just make sure you got plenty in.

I've been getting in a bit extra for a while now, while everything's still quiet on the western (australia) front. Never know when the bastard's going to hit again.

Just read about this new quick test. Hope it works!
https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...w/78228479.cms

India has had a recent large 'spike' in cases ---mainly due to people rule breaking and large 'illegal' religious gatherings. However although State by State differences general death rate figures are proportionately low. Good inpatient early treatment with Remdesivir.

(People seem to laugh when we say that we brought back case full of toilet rolls to the UK in March)

Taj Mahal opens after 6 months----not sure it's a good idea! Tourists will be staying in hotels and travelling elsewhere also.

Looks as though some areas in the UK are looking at a second lockdown, our local Morrisons has set up outside queuing areas again, having removed them a few weeks ago. They weren't restricting entry today but the channels were there and the checkouts are back to a single queue and someone allocating which checkout to go to. We are a LOW infection area.

Yup - same with ours just up the road from you.

The chief scientist and the chief medical officer held a TV briefing today - first for many weeks and not a politician in sight - should always have been like that.

Good clear reasoning, lots of figures and graphs - an easy to understand explanation of the current situation.

Basic message - if we don't knuckle down lots more people are going to die.

Lots will die, mostly those 70 years and over. About 65% or more cases in the US, where they did random testing, were found to be asymptomatic or mild cases. Most cases were found to be in the 20 to 30 years old range in the US random tests. Younger people with cases may be difficult to trace in countries like France where the only testing is being done on people who already are showing symptoms (probably the older age groups).

The way they are testing in France as opposed to UK and US means France has a ton more asymptomatic cases in young people than they even know about.

I wish all countries would make it easier for the vulnerable people with diabetes, heart disease, aids, cancer to be able to isolate by providing deliveries without charge for medicines and food. Things like that may be organized without too much expense or trouble. The UK has a lot of local help for vulnerable people.
