I can't stand Westjet.  I will never use that crappy airline again.

Well the Fed Liberals essentially "forgave" Air Canada's debt to let them get an unfair advantage over the now defunct Canadian Airlines.  Air Canada is hardly better.

New cases:  71

Total:  1,795

 

VCH: 745

FH. 747

VI. 110

Int. 153
North. 40

 

Outbreaks!  3 new ones in ltc facilities (all in Fraser Health)

 

20 ongoing outbreaks in ltc/assisted living

 

4 long term outbreaks that were active are now over (FH)

 

77 cases Mission Correctional. 5 inmates in hospital

 

28 cases - poultry processing plant

 

103 hospitalized

46 in ICU

 

1,079 fully recovered

 

3 additional deaths :( (all in ltc)

Total:  90

 

The new community outbreaks are of concern and mean we have more work to do in breaking chains of transmission.  We can't afford weaknesses in our firewall...it's why we have to keep going with this.  It's not yet time to let the guard down because it will undo all we've done.

 

So many good analogies out there:  not finishing antibiotics because "you feel better".  The rate of descent has slowed, cut the parachute off.

 

Also...Dr. Bonnie got teary and emotional at the end while addressing her friends in NS.  She's a wonderful human being.

Kinda wonder if we'll see a few spikes like this over the next week or so due to people travelling around over the Easter long weekend.

Air Canada is 10 times better that westjet.

 

Westjet reminds me of flying on Allegiant.  No thanks.

lol...I'm supposed to feel sorry for a dude that owns two condos strictly as an investment.  Probably rents them out as Airbnb.  I'll donate him some tissues for him to cry in.

I was thinking the same thing as he was saying (yelling) it.

 

Hey buddy, if you can afford to carry two mortgages in the LM, nobody feels an iota of sympathy for you.

So these new numbers include the chicken shack? Someone mentioned yesterday those cases were included in yesterday's numbers. 

Yes, they should be part of today's numbers.  27 (I think one was reported earlier).

I wonder if this uptick is a result of people ignoring social distancing guidelines for Easter? I guess we'll know the full result in another week or so?

I have been doing my four horsemen bit since page 2 of this thread. 

Despite not being a 'believer'...this all feels very biblical.

Anyway, I'm concerned about this...

Trump adamantly argued that the coronavirus would not come back in the fall with the same virulence that has this spring – saying that at most it would be “the embers” of the virus the country will have to deal with when the next flu season begins.

 

Translation: Get your shovel and start digging your underground shelters now.
