And one other thing....

The first randomized group (non-masks) was followed while the Danish society was under lockdown. Reopening occurred (18 May 2020) during follow-up of the second group (masked) of participants, but it was not reflected in the outcome because infection rates were similar between groups....

Congratulations on 2,000 deaths in a day for the first time since early May, America. And to think, we've only had 907 in total.

Another milestone to be extremely proud of.

I think we are one of the only countries left that properly assess deaths because for some reason our government doesnt want people to panic unlike other countries. Even czechs count most deaths as deaths caused by covid like they do in usa. We have around six million people, 91578 cases, 38695 recovered and 579 deaths

The prime minister acknowledged the growing fatigue Canadians face as the pandemic drags on, but says actions now could determine the country's fate for generations to come.

He also recognized the financial toll closures could take, and says his government his committed to helping businesses weather the storm.

But Trudeau says that lockdown measures are a better way to ensure long-term economic success than letting the spread of the virus continue unchecked.

Earlier, Canada's chief public health officer issued a sobering warning: If contacts increase above current levels, we'll be heading toward a worst-case scenario.

"Absolutely do not go above what we have now," Dr. Theresa Tam told reporters. "Otherwise, we're really in trouble."




we are probably going to be getting fucked again right in time for the holidays

So now that it is flu season. I'm not sure you can test for the flu very well...

At least around here, if you have flu like symptoms that are not severe, you can't go into the hospitals/clinics (unless you are visiting a family member). The COVID testing is all drive through / walk up outdoor testing. If you have flu like symptoms, you get tested for COVID. It takes days, sometimes weeks to schedule an appointment to get tested. If that comes back negative, you are then allowed to go into a clinic to get tested for the flu, but by then probably don't have symptoms anymore.

Glass half full, this year's flu season is going to be a low one.
