Schrödinger's COVID: a pandemic that is simultaneously over thanks to hybrid immunity (such that mitigation is unnecessary) and running so rampant that everyone being infected repeatedly is inevitable (such that mitigation is impossible).
6) Many people don’t seem to realize that with each repeated wave in the #pandemic — and Quebec is now in its 8th even if it’s reluctant to acknowledge this — there’s a negative impact among those who need hospital care who don’t even have #COVID19. Many are cancer patients.
ADDENDUM: Despite my plea to the Education Ministry yesterday to release data on COVID school absences, it still has stuck on its website an update from June 14. Yet it’s been collecting this data for a month now. Quebecers deserve to know how the 8th wave is affecting schools.
If your model of harm reduction essentially results in most privileged people taking zero precautions while the most vulnerable and high risk people are locked out of society and accessing essential needs, I’m sorry but that’s not harm reduction. That’s ableism.
Only in #Quebec could a political party screw up healthcare, education, the environment, the economy, COVID, and everything else as badly as the #CAQ, spout off some racist anti-immigrant BS, and cruise to majority re-election. Super disappointed in my province's voters tonight.
Taiwanese epidemiologists cracked this puzzle. Showed that there were many excess deaths that were not originally attributed to COVID, but when they went back and checked, there were ONLY excess deaths among people who had a past infection of COVID. Zero excess for uninfected.
One underreported subset of #LongCovid is covid induced delayed injury.
Folk who look recovered, but who then undergo a catastrophic injury: thrombosis, embolism, heart attack, stroke, aneurysm.
In our brave new world of mass infection, it's starting to be noticeable at scale.
So the government is dropping the mask mandate (among other things) on airplanes because it's "too hard to enforce", which is quite the statement considering I haven't been allowed to bring a full-sized bottle of water through security in 16 YEARS.
Des politiciens qui rendent des hommages émus à la couronne britannique. Des enfants de douze ans qui travaillent. Des millionnaires qui ont peur que les partageux touchent à leurs rentes. On dirait qu’on vit maintenant dans un roman de Charles Dickens.
Ça faisait des années qu'on nous disait qu'il n'y avait pas de riches au Québec donc qu'on ne pouvait pas les taxer plus. Maintenant on nous dit tout le monde est riche donc on ne peut pas les taxer plus.
Let’s deal with reality shall we. There’s no going back. This is not a cold/flu. There is no mild. Everyone is vulnerable. 1/5 will be disabled. 1/22will have major cardiac event within year. This is a disease process. There is no herd immunity. The problem is not the vax. The
I asked my friend, a smart, experienced psychologist, why so many are susceptible to being gaslighted, refusing to see what’s in front of them.
She said: “Ppl wanna believe they’re safe & that their leaders wouldn’t harm them, it’s not reality-based. It’s Stockholm syndrome.”
il y a une pandémie le Pakistan est sous l'eau il fait genre 40 en France à la mi-septembre il y a trois pieds d'eau dans la rue à Montréal et ils sont là à dire non non c'est pas le réchauffement ça madame. Sérieux lâche ma veste on a pas le temps.
I’m really distraught about how much more frequently I’m seeing “this 25 year old died in their sleep” or “this 40 year old has a massive stroke and now they’re being taken off life support”. How is anyone in medicine ignoring this? And how are many of them even covering it up?
