COVID-19: Coronavirus can survive many hours on human skin; Connor McDavid tests positive
Here are your local, national and worldwide COVID-19 updates for October 6, 2020. WORLDWIDE CORONAVIRUS UPDATES -There are now more than 35.5 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 worldwide and the death toll has surpassed 1,044,000, according to Johns Hopkins University . CORONAVIRUS ON THE SKIN Left undisturbed, the new coronavirus can survive many hours on human skin, a new study has found. Researchers conducted lab experiments using cadaver skin that would otherwise have been used for skin grafts. While influenza A virus survived less than two hours on human skin, the novel coronavirus survived for more than nine hours.
That’s up 40 per cent over the previous week and is nearly 10 times the low it reached last July.
Tam said the Public Health Agency of Canada is seeing an upward trend in the number of COVID-19 patients being hospitalized, as well.
In a statement, Tam said the increasing number and variety of COVID-19 tests available in Canada is a good step, but she says testing cannot replace basic health measures like physical distancing and wearing face masks.

YouTube Yanks More QAnon Videos in New Crackdown on Conspiracy Theories
YouTube on Thursday further cracked down on content tied to conspiracy theories like QAnon, saying it was taking steps to "curb hate and harassment" by removing more content "used to justify real-world violence." The Google-owned video giant made the announcement in a blog post. Moving forward, for example, content "that threatens or harasses someone by suggesting they are complicit in one of these harmful conspiracies, such as QAnon or Pizzagate," will be deleted. "As always, context matters," the blog post added, "so news coverage on these issues or content discussing them without targeting individuals or protected groups may stay up.
Dubé said that’s in part because people in Ontario are following health directives more closely.
“They’re more disciplined than us?” Radio-Canada’s Patrice Roy asks in a follow up.
“It’s possible,” the health minister responds.
