U.S. expert says Canada is missing the chance to fight the P.1 COVID-19 variant

A top U.S. health expert who was among the first to sound the alarm about the COVID-19 pandemic last year is now raising concerns about the spread of the P.1 variant in Canada, warning the country is acting too slowly.

A third of Covid-19 survivors suffer 'brain disease,' study shows

As many as one in three people infected with Covid-19 have longer term mental health or neurological symptoms, researchers reported Tuesday.

They found 34% of Covid-19 survivors received a diagnosis for a neurological or psychological condition within six months of their infection, according to the study published Tuesday in the journal Lancet Psychiatry.

How BC Fumbled the Third Wave

Four experts say leaders were warned of the variant threat but misread key data and failed to respond fast enough.

After successfully battling the first wave and coming closest to mirroring Atlantic Canada’s success story with COVID-19, B.C. has fallen from grace. Besieged by variants and now breaking record case counts, B.C. has joined the ranks of some of Canada’s worst performing provinces. Why?

Covid infections in Canada edge closer to US rate

The rate of Covid infections in Canada is edging close to - and may overtake - US levels for the first time.

It comes as Canada struggles to contain new Covid-19 variants and to ramp up its distribution of vaccines.

Many provinces are bringing in new virus mitigation restrictions as hospital admissions increase.

As of Tuesday, the US had fully vaccinated 19.6% of its population, compared with 8.5% in the UK and 2% in Canada.

Canada’s COVID-19 case rate tops U.S. as country continues to lag in vaccinations

For the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak began, Canada’s rate of new cases of the novel coronavirus has eclipsed that of the United States

On average over the last seven days, Canada has reported 7,967.7 new cases, and the country’s daily cases have increased 82 per cent over past 14 days.

Canada saw 9,255 new coronavirus infections on Friday, marking a new all-time record for daily cases.

Third Wave of Covid crashes over Vancouver Island

After escaping the brunt of COVID-19 illnesses and fatalities for most of last year, the third wave of the pandemic is now starting to strain public health workers in the Island Health region.

Public health leaders on Vancouver Island say they expect case numbers to keep rising, due to an influx of travellers from the Lower Mainland over Easter long weekend, among other factors.

The Island has seen cases skyrocket from what has been a consistently low number throughout the pandemic.

“We continue to be at almost 70 [cases] a day rate, which is literally triple of what we were seeing 10 days ago,” said Island Health Chief Medical Health Officer, Dr. Richard Stanwick, in an interview with Capital Daily.

A next-gen Army COVID vaccine you've never heard of has just begun human trials

"Scientists believe it might combat deadly variants and even future pandemics.

The three vaccines already authorized for use in the U.S. work by feeding the body genetic instructions to create the spike protein that is found on the surface of the virus. Once the body creates the protein, the immune system is alerted and begins forming antibodies. It's a safe way of triggering a similar immune response as one a person would have after contracting the actual virus.

The WRAIR vaccine skips both the instruction and creation steps, bringing the already-formed spike protein straight into the arm along with an immune-boosting adjuvant compound, quickly starting the antibody response."

Another bump in the road... Again, the same type of blood clot issue I am currently dealing with:

Covid-19: US agencies call for pause in Johnson & Johnson vaccine

"US health authorities are calling for a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine, after reports of extremely rare blood clotting cases.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said six cases in 6.8 million doses had been reported and it was acting "out of an abundance of caution".

It said the clotting was called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST).

The statement said that this type of blood clot needed a different treatment than usual.

Johnson & Johnson said it was also delaying its vaccine rollout in Europe.

The US move follows similar rare cases in the AstraZeneca vaccine, which has prompted some curbs in its use."

Trudeau's vaccine failure drawing global scrutiny

"Justin Trudeau and his Liberal acolytes normally love it when he gets foreign media attention. Why wouldn’t they, it’s mostly been fawning for the past several years.

The cover story for Vogue, the steamy photos they printed with him and his wife in embrace, the Rolling Stone cover asking why Trudeau couldn’t be America’s president. That’s what Trudeau is used to but it isn’t what he is getting this week.
It started with a piece last Friday in the Wall Street Journal titled “Canada’s Vaccine Rollout Lags Behind as Cases Rise.” That was followed Monday by a special report aired on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper which was critical of Trudeau’s handling of the pandemic.

In addition to those noted above, Trudeau’s failure of a rollout has also caught the eye of Bloomberg, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the progressive stalwart The Atlantic with a piece titled “Canada’s Vaccine Mess.”

“Per capita vaccination numbers lagging behind those of 50 other countries, including Brazil, Chile, Turkey, and much of Europe, according to Johns Hopkins University’s immunization tracker,” the story states.

Nothing like attracting the world press for all the wrong reasons."

Chrystia Freeland's 'epiphany' that COVID-19 is an 'opportunity' — that’s pretty dark

"Freeland may have been a little careless or loose in her phrasing. The prime minister’s declaration has about it, in contrast, clear evidence of pre-thought and considered reflection. If he was serious I expect the direction of his “reimagined” Canadian economy is one where our national energy industry, the building of pipelines, and support for all the worlds directly and indirectly supported by the energy industry will have very little place.

We’ll get more than a hint of what is actually the case in just about a week, when for the first time in a long time Canadians are allowed to see the books — or at least have a peep at them. The Budget at last."

The politics of COVID-19 results in pandemic winners and losers

Politics is at the core of the COVID-19 pandemic. Regardless of jurisdiction, the specific actions many governments have taken to combat the pandemic are ultimately rooted in politics, not science.

Groups, especially those whose identifies have little in common with the political elite, may sensibly question how broadly politicians canvass for options when reaching decisions that dramatically impact individual lives.

I ind it rather humorous (VERY actually) when the left calls CNN "Fake News"...

Jake Tapper calling Trudeau supporters 'Tru-Anon' is perfect


"I feel like Canada owes Jake Tapper a huge thank you for giving us all a new way to discuss Justin Trudeau and his followers. If you’ve missed it, there has been a battle of sorts between Tapper, the CNN anchor, and supporters of our PM after a report on Trudeau’s poor vaccine rollout.

After a factual report aired on CNN on Monday, video of it spread quickly on social media. Detractors of Trudeau held the report up as proof of the PM’s failures while his supporters called CNN fake news.

For some time now I have been arguing that Justin Trudeau supporters are much like Donald Trump supporters — they can’t take any criticism of their leader no matter how warranted. No criticism of Trump was accepted by his most ardent supporters – in particular those who identified as Q-Anon – and so it is with Trudeau.

Canada isn’t doing badly in vaccinating its population, they will tell you. In fact, they will repeat Trudeau’s latest claim that we are third in the G20 for vaccinations – ignoring that many less-developed countries are still far ahead of us. Of course, these same Tru-Anon supporters will then tell you that while Canada is doing great, those provinces run by Conservative premiers are doing awful and haven’t vaccinated anyone.

He can stand in the House of Commons and tell bald-faced lies – like the claim that Moderna vaccine doses are delayed a “day or two” — at times and those people will accept it and repeat it even as the delays stretch out to two weeks. Trudeau can claim that Canada has the biggest vaccine portfolio in the world – only if you count vaccines not approved or delivered – and the Tru-Anon crowd will repeat it.

The words of their dear leader are gospel to them."

Liberal vaccine failures could be the biggest scandal in Canadian history

"Trudeau’s made-in-Canada vaccine roll-out debacle may become the biggest scandal in Canadian history because lives are involved.

Half-baked measures may work in politics, giving bragging rights about the number of people “vaccinated”, but it doesn’t work in medicine. Studies show that the elderly and infirm don’t get the full benefits of the second dose if it is delayed, but that doesn’t matter to Trudeau who wants to disguise his government’s failure to procure vaccines.

Half-a-dose may not be better than no dose at all which may be why our cases climb to a near record of 8,590 daily this week, or four times’ higher than occurred during the summer and fall. This is even proportionally higher than America’s current daily caseload of 77,000 where unruly and mask-less governors reign in half the states.

A recent report by the Macdonald Laurier Institute also suggests that slow vaccinations have caused Canada’s death rate to surge. It cites a Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), which has found that Canada’s nursing homes had the worst record for COVID-19 deaths among wealthy nations. “All this comes as countries with more effective vaccination rollouts are witnessing precisely the opposite trend,” it points out. “Canada’s rate of excess deaths for those aged 85 and over is now well above that of the U.S.”
