      Just wait until the fall when it happens to us.  It’s predictably seasonal, the same thing happened last year at the same time.

      Vaccine passport! 

      You'd hope with a 70%+ Fully vaccination rate, versus 50% in the US. AND 30% and under in some states fuelling the spike, things won't be as bad.

      Uh oh.  Ontario sees biggest new cases in 6 weeks. 

  2. Daily cases back above 100,000 and daily deaths just reached 500 in the US. 

    It's a lot worse because those figures are coming from only a handful of states.

      Numbers don't look so bad when you consider it on a National scale. But when you realize that a vast majority of the cases are coming from Mouth-breathing southern states with vaccination rates in the 30% range. 

      You can see why it's an issue. 

      Florida is breaking Hospitalization records.

      Boges calls noticing the tens - soon to be hundreds - of thousands of untested boarder jumpers from around the world storming in through America's southern border "xenophobia." Others think it's just noticing the obvious.

      Progressive media and covid hysterics concentrating on Florida like the CBC did in the article Boges posted is also obvious. Here's why:

      Quote

      DeSantis is running for re-election next year while eyeing a 2024 presidential bid. A central tenet of his national image among conservatives is his refusal to impose mask mandates at schools and in public or to impose restrictions on businesses. He hit that message again Tuesday, saying he will not budge.

      "We are not shutting down," DeSantis said. "We are going to have schools open. We are protecting every Floridian's job in this state. We are protecting people's small businesses. These interventions have failed time and time again throughout this pandemic, not just in the United States but abroad. They have not stopped the spread, particularly with delta."

       

      They don't tell you that Florida is one of, the most  affected by the Biden regime's open border policies. Note, the new Biden order isn't just letting the untested, unmasked through, they're putting them on planes and buses then shipping them around the states where their votes will be needed. Florida is one of the most popular destinations. 

      Also the illegals are jammed into tight expanses throughout their journey. Those are super-spreader situations. 

      And if say a sudden surge of those infected coming in from Haiti, West Africa, Honduras etc. turns up on a chart you can bet Boges or the CBC will be telling you about it. They just won't be telling you who they are.

      And they love to tell you stories of sudden infection numbers or how some Prog doctor they found sees patients being packed in the hallway but they won't show you none-scary graphs like active cases in Florida.

  3. Over 50,000 COVID-19 cases in the US. Daily deaths back over 400. Even prominent Republicans are speaking out against Anti-Vaxxers. They know they're going to have to own this.

      There was a Canadian study recently that said most people that died of covid were highly likely to have died sometime that year regardless of covid.

    3. Boges

      Boges

      You mean your True North study analyzing stats from 2020?

      Again, it doesn't take into account variants and the worst case counts seen during the pandemic this Spring

      Because younger people were getting sick, the death-rate was less, but it didn't mean Hospitalization wasn't skyrocketing. 

      This is why lockdown measures were required! You didn't do anything to stem the infection death rates would have skyrocketed. Hospitals would have had to triage people and unplug those they thought may not survive. 

      Like seen in the US in the winter, before they got the vaccine. 

      Lockdowns were a preventative measure, and they worked. 

    4. Boges

      Boges

      Another reason death in Canada was less than a country like the US, was because public safety measures stayed in place for most of the pandemic. 

      And they still are in place. 

      The US lowered their guard before reaching a good vaccination rate and now there are parts of the US back to where they started. 

  4. This time it's the US dragging its feet on border re-opening. Probably because they have no way to ensure someone's vaccinated. 

    1. Boges

      Boges

      Canadians will welcome vaccinated Americans to the US on August 9th. A boon to Canada's economy.

      II suspect the issue for the US is Mexico, not Canada. But they don't want to say so because Hispanics are an important voting block for Democrats.

      Well so are Border town communities in states like Michigan, New York, Maine, Wisconsin etc etc etc. 

      This can't be met well for their tourism industries.

      And you still don't get that Hospitalizations are a lag indicator of case counts. 

      See what's happening in Missouri right now. 

      Regardless, I thought COVID-19 was done in the US? Doesn't seem so. 

    3. Shady

      Shady

      Hospitalizations won’t be as much of a lagging indicator as before vaccinations.  Florida is almost 50% fully vaccinated.  Regardless, vaccines are widely available.  Anybody that wants one can get one.  It’s not up to other people to shut down their lives to protect people.  And Florida has been open for months, so we’re at least 3 months behind them.  Our numbers will go up in the fall.

    4. Aristides

      Aristides

      By the fall, Canada will be 80% fully vaccinated, the US seems stuck at 50%.

  7. The US saw the most COVID-19 cases since mid-May. They're going in the wrong direction. With no public safety measures in place, numbers will continue to rise. Deaths are also up.

      I speak the truth.  Even you deep down inside agree.  The decision of unvaccinated people shouldn’t impede the lives of the vaccinated.

    4. Boges

      Boges

      I totally agree. But that's just not healthcare works. 

      The problem we're going to see is that variants will keep popping up the more people treat the virus like they have in the US. 

      Eventually the vaccine will lose its effectiveness. Which is why we get Flu Shots every year.

      They probably did it because they're about to call an election. 

  9. It's interesting that Trump gets credit for Operation Warp Speed, but at the same time, Biden is peddling an unproven vaccine. It's almost like the Anti-Vax narrative is dishonest.

      Oh so once it's FDA approved, it's OK to force people to take it. 

      He's trying to persuade people to get it because the Delta Variant is getting a foothold in the unvaccinated population. 

      Daily cases are back above 20,000

      BTW Trump gave the keynote address at CPAC this past weekend. He hasn't gone away. 

  10. The Ozark area of the US (Missouri & Arkansas) is the epicentre for COVID-19 Natural Selection. COVID-19 cases and Hospitalizations are spiking all due to pathetically low rates of Vaccination in those states. Idiots! 

  11. Uh oh! the US hits 19,000+ COVID cases for the first time since the end of May.

      Smoking is highly restricted as it effects others. Obesity is not transmissible. 

      One of the risks, in Canada anyway, will be continued lockdowns for those that choose not to get vaccinated if there's another wave. 

    3. Shady

      Shady

      There’s no need to separate people based on vaccination status.  If you’re vaccinated it’s irrelevant whether somebody else isn’t.  If you’re not vaccinated, you know the risks and you accept that.  Those risks may even include not being admitted to the hospital if there isn’t room.  That’s your choice, and you have to live with the consequences.

    4. Boges

      Boges

      Again the Quebec instance is only if there is an outbreak. 

      As mentioned earlier. Covid outbreaks effect many aspects of the Healthcare system. 

      With only about 10% of the adult population without any protection. I doubt that'll be necessary. 

      Again, the US is a different animal. There are some states that have a very low vaccination rate. They most certainly will have to deal with those consequences and they'll have no one to blame but themselves. 

  12. Now is not the time for arrogance in the face of the COVID-19 Delta Variant. The UK sees 30,000 daily cases and a 40% rise in Hospitalizations. Their vaccination rate is comparable.

      “People are enjoying the summer.”

      As long as they maintain social distance and avoid interaction. 

      No gym, hockey rink or swimming pool, which is something many elderly need for their health. People with diseases like fibromyalgia. People who are handicapped. Even children who are mentally disabled and need to interact.

      But good mews is Dr. Tam days we will soon be allowed to give another person a hug.

      Only outdoor facilities are open, of which there are few available and those that are open have limited capacity.

      There is a time and a place for protest. And that time and place is not when wearing someone's uniform and representing that group or organization. Protest on your own time.

      This only highlights the hypocrisy in the Cancel Culture narrative. Freedom of Speech is not Freedom from Consequences.

      Yeah, that's crap. Do you work for a living? Go to work and start protesting in front of the customers. See how long you're employed. 

      It's like all those moron sports players not seeming to understand people pay a lot of money to go to a sports game to escape from the normal reality of culture wars and politics and they don't want a bunch of overpaid athletes yanking them back into that reality.

      Protest on your own damned time. If you're wearing the uniform of a country and represent it you have no business protesting against it. Strip the uniform off and boot them from the group. Then they can protest to their heart's content.

      But that's different from going after someone who said or did something on his own, finding out where they work and then demanding they be fired.

  15. 30% of Eligible Canadians are fully vaccinated. In 2 weeks, that'll be North of 50%. Open the border!

      Russia is experiencing a Covid second wave equal to their first one in November-December of 2020. Second waves happen.

      Your New Delhi Television article does not produce any data showing why we need to believe the Delta Variant is responsible for any new deaths or hospitalizations. It just offers up one of those scary hints those kinds of publications like to scare the easily frightened with.

      Sorry I can't run with you to tell the king the sky is falling just yet.

    3. OftenWrong

      OftenWrong

      I already mentioned that the normal evolution of variant is more infectious, less deadly. Conversely some become less infectious, more deadly. Its unusual to have one that is both more infectious and more deadly.

      The delta variant has shown itself to be more infectious but less deadly. Yawn.

      More interesting is how quick certain media mouthpieces who acted like experts screamed it was more infectious, more deadly. And that was right away at the onset when this variant was discovered. I thought, how can they say that. No data yet to even back that up. It’s unconscionable.

      You people who think you know things. You prove that good, auld adage “a little knowledge is dangerous”.

    4. Boges

      Boges

      Who said the sky is falling. I'm not particularly worried about Delta, because vaccination. 

      However there are plenty in the US that refuse to get vaccinated. You want to assume that these variants are harmless and not the fact that vaccination actually works? 

  17. Seeing the crowd of unmasked people in Montreal last night would have to show officials that filling the area wouldn't be the end of the world. You aren't even seeing crowds like that in the US.

      I guess you didn't hear about the riot police and the tear gas used to disperse the crowd right after the game ended.

      Fans inside the stadium were not allowed to leave, ordered to remain in their seats until further notice while authorities were dealing with an "unsafe situation outside."

      All done off-camera, of course.

      Ain't it funny, how we don't hear much about that.

      Weather is a contributing factor as well. 

      If vaccination rates stay at 50% or below in certain states, the disease could re-gain a foothold with variants. 

    3. Shady

      Shady

      It certainly is possible, but in the meantime they’re living their lives as mostly back to normal.  Keeping things closed down because something might happen later on is not what this is supposed to be about.  We’re down to 400 cases/day now in Ontario.  Why was it ok to have limited capacity at a gym last July but not this July when vaccinations are overwhelming?  

    4. Boges

      Boges

      I guess because our full vaccination rate is only like 8% and we have variants to deal with now.

      They've kind of moved the goalpost on this because of a study that shows 2 dose is less than 50% effective against the Delta variant. 

      DoFo was burned by re-opening before hospitalization went back down.

      Yes, lockdowns that didn’t need to take place had we not had to wait until April for any substantial quantities of vaccines.  Wasted months that were paying for now, while other countries have been back to almost normal.  Stop making excuses.
