Yah, i am anti government policy that puts my daughters life at risk since she works in a school with no PPE in Surrey.....

 

Yah that makes me a bad person hoping that my daughter is safe and is treated respectfully by our BC government.

 

Having school staff with no PPE rights.... that all other BC workers get is disturbing.. Tells you all about BC work safe in our province. 

 

Meanwhile  BC gov fluffers here.... just constantly try to downplay the risks of covid.....     So many people here  were anti mask in late spring / early summer... See how they change their tune now.  At least i have been consistent i that i expect effective  leadership from my government. 

If the school isn’t giving her PPE, and she can’t afford it herself, then buy it for her. I know I’d do that for my daughter.

Even if Obama broadcast it live, tinfoil hatters would still conspiracy conspiracy something that what was happening didn't happen.

Obama will take coronavirus vaccine and might film it to build confidence – ‘I trust this science’

 

  • Former President Barack Obama said he will take a coronavirus vaccine once one is available.
  • Obama said he would be willing to film it, if that would build confidence in the U.S. about vaccine safety.
  • Obama’s comment came as numerous polls find many Americans are skeptical about getting a Covid-19 vaccine, potentially jeopardizing U.S. vaccination efforts to control the pandemic.

Its not going to change those minds who are hell bent on not getting it ESPECIALLY if its a forced vaccine.  I know a few people who aren't necessarily anti-vax, they just don't like the idea of the government forcing a vaccine.  I don't blame them much, theres never anything the government forces that I like but this was something I was willing to get at some point.

Honestly so many of them are so racist that Obama taking it would likely backfire and cause them to dig in deeper.

 

Ultimately, when they're denied entry to their work, to restaurants, to theatres, sporting events, other countries etc etc, they'll have no choice.

 

They should let Obama inoculate them all, just for s&g

4 months to late.  Better late than never.  Playing sports indoors with an airborn highly contagious virus never really made a lot of sense...

 

Having kids in school classrooms all day with no social distancing... no mandatory masks... no PPE for adults... and  often  no windows that open - makes no sense as well.

 

BC is the no sense / no science province i guess.....

In Alberta we stopped playing Mid March.  Started up Oct 1st and were shut down again a month later.......

People will just claim that it is just a Dextrose injection and not the real vaccine

No problem from me, I don’t work at the health authority and don’t mind restrictions such as the ones you have listed. I’m hoping they don’t limit things like concerts and travel (as they have not required any of the currently existing vaccines before...polio doesn’t sound a lot better than covid) but if they do I’m willing to accept that until I feel comfortable taking it. I think a lot of people complaining about their rights haven’t considered the rights of others. For example I absolutely have every right to not wear a mask...I just can’t shop anywhere as the stores have a right to refuse service to anyone not wearing a mask. I will always believe in my right to choose what goes into my body and what doesn’t but your correct that every choice come with consequences 

and thats great, thats a good way to look at it. Make your personal choices your own, thats how it should be. 

 

I think unfortunately a lot of people are going to wait too long and we'll see a 3rd wave. The vaccines so far sound like they can have moderate effects, e.g. people feeling a bit feverish or have mild symptoms for a day or two. No biggie, but enough to send our social media machine into full on panic mode I'm sure.

 

Yes the development curve has been shortened, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been tested on enough people. Don't forget, we're talking about 100s of thousands of volunteers. Normally that takes many years to compile, but this time there were a lot of folks willing to step up for. the rest of us.

Some people are just ridiculous.  Put a thin piece of cloth over your face, or get a charge on your criminal record ?  tough choice

 

Another reminder that enforcement by employees can be risky business

Covid is now in a number of schools in Penticton here.

 

My oldest daughter goes to school, one class over from the brother of a kid who tested positive for the Penticton Vees.

 

Girls i've recently shot with at the local Earls (no you cannot see the photos) have tested positive en masse

 

My youngest had no less than 7 kids out of her class as of yesterday due to potential exposure.

 

So last night we had the longest talk about wearing masks every second they are in school period.  I've noticed without question that my youngest daughters school/class are not wearing masks in line or leaving school.  apparently not in class either.  Yesterday caught them blowing "frost breath smoke rings" at each other in line...

 

As a parent and realist I know getting this is essentially an inevitability.  But as a parent the idea fo my babies contracting this and potentially having life long issues scares me to my very core

 

Honestly, 60-70% of my day is spent on enforcement and compliance

Italy reports record 993 coronavirus deaths in the last 24 hours, new record

Thu 3 Dec 2020 16:32:07 GMT

 

Daily Covid statistics from Italy

  • new coronavirus deaths reach a record 993
  • cases for the day increase 23,225
Italy is a hotspot within Europe although the case count is falling from the early November highs of around 40K..
 
Early death count
 
 

US virus cases increase by nearly 200,000

Thu 3 Dec 2020 18:17:12 GMT
 

Today's CDC data

  • Cases up 196,227 vs 152,022 yesterday
  • Deaths up 2762 vs 1251 yesterday
There is the usual rise at this time of the week so the acceleration isn't as bad as it looks. Still, these numbers are awful.
