It's interesting that Keith Baldry said yesterday that the tests really aren't that good.  Testing has 30% false negative results.  I would say this means that testing must be done multiple times to screen properly

They might want to try paying more. 

What don’t you not get about employers? They are the ones taking the risks and paying all the bills. Many businesses are barely keeping their heads above water. You have absolutely nothing in you that can see what others go through. You’re very self centred. Let’s put it this way since you think that way. What’s going to happen when that business goes bankrupt to “pay you more”? Wait, I know. You don’t care because you will just collect EI right? :picard:

When the 2nd wave hits it won't be as bad as the Spanish Flu (aka the chart above).  

 

Because in a hundred years, society has learned to wash their hands, perform social distancing, increase awareness (via social media).  And advancement in medicine, vaccines, and flattening the curve.

 

The projections I've seen is that it would most likely mirror the first wave.  Maybe a bit higher as I don't see the Government shutting down the economy again.

 

Great for Canada because we did an awesome job.  Scary for others like the USA.

I think you can also work for up to $1000 per month over and above CERB without losing it. 

I don't mind this.

 

The servers, bartenders etc will fall into this category. They used to live off tips and likely only made min wage on paper.

Another protest eh. 

Yup, the liberal media doesn’t mention about Covid during these yet if there is a political rally, oh wow, they are all over Trump (not a Trump fan but see the hypocrisy). Disgusting, how bias the media is :picard:

I was thinking that.

 

What if the tests just aren’t that accurate. I mean they did kind of rush them into use.

Honestly I am all for the movement and everything . My brother in law is actually black . But it just seems kinda silly to be having protests here in Vancouver .

The other thing that may not be the panacea that people are hoping for is the vaccine, when it finally comes.....how effective is it really going to be?

 

I just wanted to add that this is why it is important that scientists are working on multiple vaccines and solutions to Covid 19

We don't have any shortage of racism in Vancouver.  Just talk to any black person.  They are usually assumed guilty until proven innocent by most white people, most notably a number of police officers.  Same with indigenous people...look at the current potential issue of health care workers taking odds on the level of alcohol in someone's system (indigenous) when they come into Emergency.  Aboriginal women who give birth frequently have their children taken away immediately in the hospital if they have had issues with Social Services and Child Services, with no thought to keeping those children in the indigenous community.  

So yeh, there's a reason to be protesting in Vancouver.  Whether it makes sense to protest Juneteenth is probably a good question.

42 % of women in  Canada's prisons  are indigenous....  3  % of CDN females are indigenous..

 

overall.  male/female  - ...  27% of  people / CDN's in prison are indigenous.  5 % of CDN's  population are indigenous

Sewage study suggests COVID-19 was in Italy before China reported cases

*******

 

So patient zero could have come from Italy.

 

That's not what the study is suggesting at all. The key wording there is before China reported cases.

No I will go get a job at a viable business. 
Most businesses are just exploiting workers instead of employing them.

Well that would assume that number stays consistent over 500+ players which it surely wouldn’t.


In reality I bet it’s closer to 2% which should have been expected anyways. To think no player was going to get infected was unlikely.

Considering how young people are managing their Covid lives?

 

Inevitable.
