Canada’s COVID-19 travel restrictions are an inept, deadly failure

"There may not be an aspect of Canada’s pandemic response more pathetic, more inept, more reflective of our overall dismal strategy for dealing with COVID-19 and its deadly variants than our policies around travel, both international and domestic.

Dr. Bonnie Henry confirmed the case of P.1 in the province was traced to an international traveller. Imagine that. Everybody is saying: “Isn’t this terrible? What a tragedy.” While other countries stopped flights from COVID-19 hot spots such as Brazil and India, Canada maintained its open-arms policy.

Every week there are more stories of flights, both domestic and international, landing at airports across the country and disgorging sick passengers. According to Health Canada, 33 flights from Delhi, India, landing in Canada this month carried people ill with COVID-19. But by all means Health Minister Patty Hajdu, do go on about how our travel restrictions are some of the strongest in the world.

B.C. Premier John Horgan said recently he’s pondering interprovincial travel restrictions, after earlier saying he had a legal opinion they wouldn’t work. He never released that argument, or his reasoning behind his statement that new orders could be imposed now. Everyone knows it’s an empty threat. Nothing will happen. And people from Alberta carrying COVID-19 will continue pouring into B.C. and vice-versa.

I think the best policy for Canadians is this: When it comes to COVID-19 you’re on your own. Pretend you don’t have governments protecting you because in many ways you don’t."

Canada's health care workers brace for the painful blow of a punishing third wave

"For days now, as the Covid-19 case count mounted and hospital admissions surged, Canadians seemed dismayed and asked: How could this happen here, where most people dutifully followed public health guidelines?

Provincial governments across the country are now reckoning with a damaging Covid-19 third wave that might imperil the universal health care system of which Canadians are so fiercely proud.

From coast to coast, across thousands of miles and hundreds of hospitals, many provinces are now anxiously watching the case count rise. That's happening as variants of concern spread a more contagious virus to younger Canadians and send more people in hospital.

On Saturday, Ontario again shattered fresh records for both hospital and ICU admissions. Modeling released by the province's expert advisory panel Friday detailed a dire snapshot of the crisis already unfolding in hospitals and how the situation is likely to get even worse.

"Notice that our hospitals can no longer function normally -- they are bursting at their seams," said Dr. Adalsteinn Brown, Ontario's science advisory co-chair. "We're setting up field hospitals, and we're separating critically ill patients from their families by helicoptering them across the province for care. Our children's hospitals are now admitting adults as patients. This has never happened in Ontario before. It's never happened in Canada before."

Brown was strikingly blunt about a worst-case scenario: Ontario could be forced to ration care, especially for critical care spots.

Health Canada reported a 35% increase in hospitalizations -- and a more than 20% increase in ICU admissions throughout Canada in the week ending April 11. More troubling is the mortality trend, with a 38% increase in deaths in the last week alone."

Ted Nugent tests positive for coronavirus after calling pandemic a ‘scam’

Musician Ted Nugent has tested positive for coronavirus months after he said that the virus was “not a real pandemic”.

In his Christmas message shared on social media in December, Nugent called the worldwide crisis a “scammy pandemic” and said that people who wore masks were “sheep”.

“Today is the 19th of April 2021 during clusterf*** pandemic... I was tested positive today. I got the Chinese s***.”

Describing his symptoms including a “stuffed-up head” and “body-aches”, Nugent continued: “My god, what a pain in the a**. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days… So I was officially tested positive for Covid-19 today.”

COVID-infected people arrive in B.C. from India as Trudeau ponders flight restriction

COVID-infected people continue to arrive in Vancouver from India — where mutations are out of control.

According to latest data from the B.C. Centre for Disease Control, 10 flights arrived in Vancouver from Delhi between April 6 and April 16 with infected people on board — and in some cases with several infected people on board.

During the same period, infected people also arrived in Vancouver from Amsterdam and the U.S.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was considering whether to stop incoming flights from specific countries, such as India.

Maybe, just maybe if Trudeau had actually addressed this matter say over a year ago, Canada might be a whole lot better off at this point...

As a Dual Citizen, I receive Alerts from the US Government from time to time. This one just landed:

Do not travel to Canada due to COVID-19.

Read the Department of State's COVID-19 page before you plan any international travel.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for Canada due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in the country. There are restrictions in place affecting U.S. citizen entry into Canada. Visit the Embassy's COVID-19 page for more information on COVID-19 in Canada.

Read the country information page.

If you decide to travel to Canada:

· See the U.S. Embassy's web page regarding COVID-19.

· Visit the CDC's webpage on Travel and COVID-19.

· Be aware of your surroundings when traveling to tourist locations and crowded public venues.

· Follow the instructions of local authorities.

· Monitor local media for breaking events and adjust your plans based on new information.

· Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program(STEP) to receive Alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.

· Follow the Department of State on Facebook and Twitter.

· Prepare a contingency plan for emergency situations. Review the Traveler's Checklist.

COVID-19: Double mutant virus first identified in India is now in B.C.

A COVID-19 variant linked to record-breaking case numbers in India has been identified in B.C.

In a prepared statement, a B.C. Ministry of Health official said that 39 cases of the double mutation known as B.1.617 had been found in the province.
Health Minister Adrian Dix said the news of the variant’s arrival was “concerning” and that the B.C. government had some issues with the implementation of the federal government’s quarantine program.

There have been at least 10 flights arrive in Vancouver from Delhi, India, since April 6 with COVID-infected people on board.
According to Bloomberg, the new variant was initially detected in India with two separate mutations and one of those mutations (L452R) is characterized in U.S studies to increase viral transmission by around 20 per cent and reduce antibody efficacy by more than 50 per cent.

Ottawa consulting on stricter border measures, won't stop flights from India

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is indicating the federal government is looking at additional COVID-19 measures to protect international borders but won’t stop flights into Canada from India.

India continues to be a COVID-19 crisis point with the world’s second most populous nation reporting 295,041 new infections on Wednesday. It was the world’s highest daily rise and is stretching that country’s hospitals to breaking point.

Collectively the MP's told Trudeau to STUFF his announced decision to NOT ban flights from India and other hot-spots. Bet the air is a little blue around that sad little man-child today...

Canada bans flights from India, Pakistan for 30 days

The federal government is suspending incoming passenger flights from India and Pakistan for the next month as cases of COVID-19 surge in both countries.

There are additional steps coming to prevent people from travelling to Canada from India and Pakistan via other countries.

At least 32 flights from Delhi and two from Pakistan have landed in Canada in the last two weeks carrying dozens of passengers who later tested positive for COVID-19.

Just a few hours ago, MPs unanimously agreed Canada should suspend international flights from countries where COVID-19 outbreaks are raging just a few hours before the federal government is expected to announce new restrictions on incoming travel.

The House of Commons adopted a motion from the Bloc Quebecois this afternoon calling for flights carrying non-essential travellers from certain countries, such as India and Brazil, to be barred.

Deputy Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Howard Njoo said at a briefing this afternoon that ministers were looking at data about incoming flights, testing and variants of concern, including metrics that show an increase in cases coming in on flights from India.

Once again, Canadian border restrictions come only after the damage has been done

In the face of an overwhelming number of COVID-19 cases in South Asia, on Thursday Canada finally imposed a month-long ban on direct passenger flights from India and Pakistan.

Nevertheless, the 11th hour measure is tragically in keeping with a longstanding Canadian policy of keeping borders open until long after any opportunity to decisively stave off disaster has passed.

Canada is maintaining a laissez-faire attitude to its border in spite of the fact that the last 14 months have yielded dozens of examples of countries and regions who successfully used border controls to spare themselves the worst horrors of COVID-19.

Regardless, speaking to Global News on Wednesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau justified his government’s then-refusal to restrict flights from India by saying Canada already had the “strongest measures in the world in terms of protecting our borders.”

'More people are catching on': Travellers using U.S.-Canada land border to avoid quarantine hotels

Walking across the border isn't new or illegal, but it does contravene non-essential travel advisories and allows travellers to avoid staying in one of the federally sanctioned quarantine hotels that can cost up to $2,000 for a three-day stay — a requirement for those arriving by air.
Peacock is not alone. Since the hotel rules came into effect on Feb. 21, nearly 20,000 people crossed the border by land (not including essential workers), according to a CBC News analysis of numbers provided by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

U.K. is 'out of pandemic status

Britain is no longer in a pandemic, experts said, as data showed the vaccination program was reducing symptomatic COVID-19 infections by up to 90 per cent.

In the first large real-world study of the impact of vaccinations, researchers found the rollout was having a major impact on both symptomatic and asymptomatic cases.

Sarah Walker, professor of medical statistics and epidemiology at Oxford and chief investigator on the Office for National Statistics COVID-19 infection survey, said Britain had “moved from a pandemic to an endemic situation”, where the virus was circulating at a low, largely controllable level.

No, Minister Hajdu, the Vitamin D conversation isn't 'fake news'

Using government data to reveal a hidden fact is not “fake and dangerous news,” being skeptical of the adversarial Chinese communists is not “propaganda,” and wondering if vitamin D may make us healthier is not “fake news,” regardless of what one self-righteous Trudeau minister believes.

Hajdu says that Canadians must trust their government.

I’ve got news for Hajdu: so-called fake news isn’t the problem. It would be easier to trust this government if it wasn’t wrong so often.
