  1. Cases of empties are growing in the shed

  2. Why did they stop reporting the death numbers? Is very odd, in the begging it was the lead now they will not mention it. Cant admit is getting better. Dont mention over all deaths which include the spring before we got a handle on it, what it the death rate now in %

      ​@Xaht His figure is basically correct for those under 60 years of age in Canada. According to the federal government’s own data through November 23rd:

      0-59 years of age: 240,643 cases and 379 deaths = 0.16% case fatality rate. That means 99.84% of those under 60 survive.

      465 — number of Canadians under the age of 60 who died from influenza and pneumonia in 2018
      379 — number of Canadians under the age of 60 who died from COVID in 2020 through November 23rd

      Plain old influenza and pneumonia claimed more lives of those under 60 two years ago than has COVID so far this year.

      @5252085 The Alberta case fatality rate for those under 60 years of age:

      0-59 years of age: 41,778 cases and 20 deaths = 0.05% case fatality rate. That’s a 99.95% survival rate for those under 60, which is better than the national figure. Those under 60 are 80.8% of Alberta’s population.

      Take careful note of two things Alberta does not publish: (1) the exact definition of a COVID death it uses; and (2) the number of cases and deaths among the residents of long-term care facilities. These two items are important in properly understanding the context of COVID fatality counts.

    Allowing this to Happen is Dangerous.

  4. How can you suspend something that was nearly non-existent in the first place? In other news, I’d like to announce my suspension from having sex with supermodels…:/

    328 in hospital, 62 of them intensive care, what is there, like 3 hospitals in Alberta?

  6. Nice try. They suspended it because no one was enforcing it. That’s how it works. Non compliance = your freedoms. And that why the masks mandates have gained power. Because idiots actually believe they work.

  7. BL ah blah blah

  8. Time to stop and read any news.

  9. How many opioid overdoses and suicides? What is out of control again?

    • All I had to do was being a bad relationship with a longshoreman lose my home in North Vancouver and that was the end of my life but I’m still alive somehow. How we treat women in Canada is shameful I never was a millionaire before I wouldn’t have hung out in this neighborhood now it’s my neighborhood and I put it videos up on YouTube all the time cuz I see so much I even jumped in the middle of a knife fight for drug back f******** on one guy and they stabbed him 😱 this is what I look like most of the time in this neighborhood when I’m outside.

    So when they suspend CT, it means the Infection rate is out of control.

    If they decided to do all this testing in the past with the flu, it would have looked exactly like this. Ridiculous fear mongering.

  12. Covid is the “Trojan horse”. It’s a scientific dictatorship being guided by the principles of eugenics operating as a psyop under the guise of the pandemic using medical martial law

  13. I just hope that they can prove these stats from the testing to each and every so-called case. Highly unlikely.

  14. She should just step down. She did great at the beginning but failed badly

  15. Wasn’t the first lockup to flatten the curve? So…

  16. Tracing method is a joke!! What are u guys doing with those selfish pep with a covid19 still active around their community? City? Country?
