COVID-19: Ontario reports more than 4,000 new cases; Ottawa hospitalizations, ICU cases at record levels

  COVID-19: Ontario reports more than 4,000 new cases; Ottawa hospitalizations, ICU cases at record levels Ottawa hospitals preparing to postpone non-urgent surgeries as COVID-19 cases continue to rise School closure to in-person learning following spring break is more likely than not, Dr. Vera Etches says Ottawa sees 242 new cases, one new death Ontario reported 4,249 new cases of COVID-19 Friday, a high not seen since the peak of the second wave in early January. This total includes 1,218 infections in Toronto, 762 in Peel, 532 in York Region, and 247 in Durham. The seven-day average now sits at 3,256 cases reported daily, provincewide. There have been 378,339 cases of COVID-19 in Ontario since the pandemic began.

When Covid - 19 coincidentally emerged from Wuhan two months later, scientists were rushing to generate similar alarmist forecasts using a variety of questionable scientific models. In the face of such runaway wealth fractionation, panoptic contact tracing tools from Big Tech are increasingly employed to pacify restive populations. And of course, to prevent a second, third or nth wave of Covid - 19 for our collective good! In the meantime, Big Banks, Big Pharma, Big Tech and other monopolies are getting lavish central bank bailouts or “stimulus packages” to gobble up struggling

There are many fake or unproven medical products and methods that claim to diagnose, prevent or cure COVID - 19 . Fake medicines sold for COVID - 19 may not contain the ingredients they claim to

Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Andrew Furey spoke with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Saturday about providing assistance to Ontario, as that province tackles its third wave of COVID-19.

"We have offered to the Prime Minister, as we did to Premier Ford last week, any support Newfoundland and Labrador could give in terms of personnel, equipment, supplies. Within our own capacity, of course," Furey said Sunday on CBC's Rosemary Barton Live.

Ontario extends stay-home order to six weeks and bans most outdoor gatherings

  Ontario extends stay-home order to six weeks and bans most outdoor gatherings Ontario Premier Doug Ford has extended the stay-at-home order by two weeks and has imposed further restrictions on outdoor activities and retail in the hopes of flattening of the COVID-19 surge in the province. The announcement follows COVID-19 modelling released by the province science advisors Friday, which showed that the province could approach up 20,000 causes a day if strong measures aren’t imposed. Ontario’s science advisers say a six-week stay-at-home order and a vaccination rate of at least 100,000 doses a day is the only way to curb the COVID-19 third wave surge.

The COVID - 19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 ( COVID - 19 ) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2

There is no specific, effective treatment or cure for coronavirus disease 2019 ( COVID - 19 ), the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Thus, the cornerstone of management of COVID - 19 is supportive

"Newfoundland and Labrador is a small province, but we recognize the significant impact this is having on Canadians living in Ontario. And we want to be able to help."

Ontario reported 4,250 new COVID-19 cases and 18 new deaths on Sunday, while more than 2000 people are in hospital, nearly 750 in intensive care units with COVID-related illness and about 500 people are on ventilators, as modelling predicts their caseloads will remain high throughout the summer.

Furey says sending a group of organized medical professionals to help in COVID-19 units and critical care units would be "an incredible asset for the people of Ontario."

"And that's what we're trying to organize right now here on the ground," he said.

Support won't include vaccine supply

However, when asked about Ford's management of the pandemic and criticism about not putting public health measures in place sooner, Furey didn't lay blame at Ford's feet.

Feds to send personnel, rapid tests to Ontario as province struggles to contain COVID-19

  Feds to send personnel, rapid tests to Ontario as province struggles to contain COVID-19 The federal government is stepping in to provide more help to Ontario as COVID-19 cases soar, putting strain on the province's healthcare system.In a video posted to Twitter on Sunday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau detailed how his government would be providing additional support to Ontario.

Even so, the COVID - 19 operation is unlike any other event to take place in modern history because the results of this event are affecting people in every single nation on the planet and will continue to for years to come. The two men believe COVID - 19 triggered "momentous changes and magnified the fault lines that already beset our economies and societies." They also predict that falling oil prices and a freeze in tourism could lead to a wave of massive anti-government demonstrations. The authors argue

Medical staff use a biocontainment stretcher to transfer a Covid - 19 patient to a hospital in Varese, Italy, on October 19. Some niche products like oysters from France may be cut off for a while -- but these aren't daily necessities, and Hong Kong can replace the supply through other countries, said Wong. And although Malaysia is currently under a nationwide lockdown, the food industry is one of the essential services exempt.

"I don't see COVID-19 as recognizing any provincial barriers," Furey said.

"This is the benefit of the federation, when you can call on your neighbours to help in tough times. And Newfoundland and Labrador have always stepped up in tough times of crisis... and we intend to help here and now."

He said support from Newfoundland and Labrador would likely come in the form of relief for Ontario's medical personnel working through the pandemic.

But Furey said the province will not forego its share of vaccine supply to meet demand in hotspots across the country because he says the provincial government is still operating under a per capita calculation.

"It's now a forest fire. You need firefighters. You don't need the fire prevention unit," Furey said of Ontario's COVID-19 case counts.

Matt Gurney: Doug Ford's bungling of the third wave is distracting from Justin Trudeau's many failures

  Matt Gurney: Doug Ford's bungling of the third wave is distracting from Justin Trudeau's many failures It would not be an exaggeration to say that Ontario’s government seems to have completely lost control of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last weekend was absolutely chaotic, with orders issued Friday being revoked on Saturday amid a significant public backlash. Even as Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s government attempted to pick itself up off the mat on Monday, with senior cabinet ministers admitting they badly screwed up, it has been fascinating to see the growing pressure on the federal government to step in and do … something .

The doctors concur that Pfizer’s vaccine studies should be halted until a credible study design can be presented, one that doesn’t falsify data endpoints and one that addresses a host of serious safety concerns. The doctors warn that Pfizer is conflating non-specific symptoms of illness with COVID - 19 diagnoses for the control arm while using inaccurate, high cycle PCR tests for a diagnosis. The doctors warn that the vaccine’s efficacy is being contorted because the study design fails to properly diagnose cases of COVID - 19 and fails to confirm infection using the Sanger sequencing method.

Fauci's admitted Covid - 19 deception is symptomatic of how government officials “infantilize the American people,” one commenter said . But the doctor remains a superstar in the minds of many Americans, with some Twitter users calling him a “beacon of scientific thinking and enlightenment during these dark ages of ignorance and superstition.” Radio host John Ziegler offered a theory as to how Trump got the blame for 326,000 US Covid - 19 deaths, while following Fauci's policy advice, but the doctor was elevated by the media as a hero and genius.

"Even if [they] had all the vaccine right now at this particular moment to take, there's a 10 to 14 day immunity uptake before you're able to have an impact."

Meanwhile Furey is also relying on his experience as a surgeon and the founder of Team Broken Earth, a medical non-profit, which provided medical assistance to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.

"I've seen how a small province can give back on an international stage. Sometimes it's the medical relief that comes in small packages that makes a big impact in local communities," he said.

"We'd love to be able to provide some personnel, even if it's in a relief capacity. I imagine [Ontario's] healthcare professionals  are working just tirelessly, which is one of the lessons we learned after the earthquake in Port au Prince."

Ford spoke publicly of Furey's outreach during Ontario's Friday COVID-19 briefing, saying he hopes to visit the Atlantic provinces when the pandemic ends.

"A small place like Newfoundland, they wear their heart on their sleeves out there," Ford said Friday. "I'm so, so grateful. Very grateful. Andrew, thank you."

N.L. watching Monday budget release

Furey was also asked about Monday's upcoming federal budget, saying he will be watching for spending on child care programs and green infrastructure.

"We have an ability to to really be the green battery that can drive the east coast of Canada. And we're interested to see where that goes," he said.

On childcare, Furey is interested to see federal funding and partnerships, noting that he implemented $25-a-day daycare at regulated facilities in this province in his first six months in office.

"And I'm interested in moving that number down," he said of child care costs.

Monday's budget will be the first budget released since 2019. The 2020 budget was not released due to COVID-19.
