Ontario positive rate is currently around 0.5%. We're almost at 10% of the province's population being tested now. I assume some of these are people with multiple tests though. Canada only had 4 deaths officially recorded yesterday. Quite a dramatic difference from the experience in the US. Given the geographic pattern, it will be interesting to observe if/when Australia gets hit. I predict around early August if it happens at all.

What is also an interesting country to follow is Sweden. Their case counts are actually up in the last month. They seem to be averaging 1000+ cases per day in the month of June. What changed in June? Did they relax their already relaxed restrictions? Did they just need to reach a critical mass in positive cases before a big jump occurred?

Canada and Sweden seem to be on opposite trajectories in terms of flattening the curve...

Hopefully things continue on a downward trend in Canada as things reopen.

I'm presuming this is inside without distancing.

Some people just cannot grasp what this virus can do. You can be infected as a young healthy individual and not feel the acute symptoms but as more data is coming out it's clear this virus causes long term effects even in healthy individuals. It's main target is the respiratory system but it can hurt the heart, brain, kidneys, pancreas and other systems for years and who knows how long for. Of course the older with chronic health conditions are more at risk. There have been been many reports of young, healthy people just not feeling the same anymore.

I made a post a few months or weeks ago about my dad. He was a surgeon and contracted the virus and he is now about 3 months on a ventilator with no major improvement. My sister who lives with my parents used to be able to run 20-30mins without feeling short of breath now she can't even do half of that even if she never showed symptoms. Wear a mask and practice social distancing and keep a close group of friends who follow similar protocols. Not worth the consequences.

First of all prayers go out to your family. I pray that they're all able to recover.
Second to ilustrate what you're saying, Gobert talk about how he was feeling and he still doesn't have his smell back fully. He says some days he feels weird. He also went through a period where he felt ants were in his toes or something like that - they call it COVID toes. These connections are neural - smell, sensations, feeling weird. They're also saying the ones that are asymptomatic are most likely to get it again because fewer anti-bodies months later. So they can get it, test, quarantine, think they're safe but get it again a few months later and respread it. Everyone needs to be carefull it's real and you just hear a testimonial that it's real.
Perhaps he is hated because he is a narcissist, pathological liar, incapable of decent human emotions, incapable of running an organization such as a government. He incites racial hatred, doesn't know how to handle a crisis - I'll stop there.

Thank you. It's such a novel virus that we are learning more about it everyday and its potential long term effects. I've seen cases of increased blood clots in healthy individuals and inflammation of the heart muscle and permanent scarring in some patients. The antibodies people are developing don't (at least per current evidence) last permanently so reinfection is possible. The best hope is to have a vaccine sooner than later (even that may not give us permanent immunity against this virus). And then you have idiotic 'leadership' from Trump and Bolsonaro who downplay it as nothing and yet the US and Brazil have the worst outcomes so far and are not helping to slow down the spread (but that's another discussion). 2020 has been awful.

This is probably an accurate depiction of the risk pattern. However it has flaws.

I wonder how they actually determined these rates. Too bad they didn't disclose 2 key variables: space & time. Lets assume a constant viral load and spacing. 2 people are on an 8 hr shift working in close proximity both wearing masks. Time for this mask picture is set at 30 minutes. What is the cumulative rate for both wearing masks now? Its not 1.5% anymore. Thats basically why heathcare workers had more risk of acquiring the virus.

I feel like this pandemic will be with us for a while and isn't going away. Here in BC we got a potential new outbreak because a strip club skirted some rules. First of all why are people going to a strip club during a virus pandemic? FFS man. All the sacrifices we've made so far is washed away because people are still breaking the law and don't give a ****. I'm pissed I have to share the earth with these idiots.

I think people in Upstate NY are taking it more seriously. There are more people in masks in public places. But then I walked by a restaurant and there was no social distancing and no masks.

lol brothels should be outta business by now. I'm more concerned about international flights still coming in to the country, which has been the case since the initial "lockdown". If people are still travelling during these times and the governments are allowing it, then its just multi layered idiocy. It shouldve been a total border shutdown from day 1.

It will be interesting to see how soon they open up the US Canada border.
