  1. Did not stop or test air travellers from hotspots . Stupid!

    • The Government just lifted travel ban on foreign students on Oct 20. They’re streaming in …

    • @santubong2011 Well, where else are they gonna find those “cases”? Who’s stupid enough to volunteer test?

      Unless those travellers go to nursing homes, it doesn’t really matter.

      Influenza and pneumonia is a demonstrably larger risk to life to three-quarters of the Canadian public than is COVID. So says the government’s own data.

  2. Cases, cases, cases. How about we report of the mortality instead? Oh right, its not that high.

      What in the Sam Hill are you talking about? Please elaborate?🤔

      @Ottavio Rubini Cases are no longer translating into hospitalizations or deaths at anywhere near the rate of five and six months ago. As per the official Canadian federal government COVID data:

      75,723 cases — 5,942 deaths = May-August (123 days)
      82,784 cases — 648 deaths = Sept.-Oct. 23rd (53 days)

      9% more cases in less than half the time, yet deaths are 89% lower.

      @Ottavio Rubini This has a 99.8% survival rate. There has never been more testing which is why the ‘cases’ are going up. However deaths remain very low…. Only the severely immune compromised and elderly are passing from this. The rest don’t have symptoms or have symptoms similar to the seasonal flu.

  6. My oh My, a year to forget.

  7. Thailand ..pop 70 million… Covid cases.. 3000+, deaths… 59. They stopped the infected air travellers.

  8. the only curve is the MSM that’s against the public on a downward spiral

  9. And most of those are false positives.

  10. omg I’m so scared!! someone hold me pls!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. You mean all of these cases with a 99% recovery rate and the majority of the time having no or little symptoms at all?

    Well when you allow travel and immigration of course it will come back it is why it came here in the first place. Also Quebec when you lock down your province keep your ignorant there. Thanks from your sugar daddy aka Ontario.

  19. This is getting so ridiculous.
