With testing woefully unable to meet demand, and no available home tests to speak of (SSK residents are getting them tossed into their grocery bags, I'm guessing MB gov't is waiting for ours to expire, and then hand out at LC's), they are now advising "If you have mild cold or flu symptoms, assume you have Omicron and self isolate".

Really?

Well, I guess if you can...

Meantime, malls and stores are open at 100% capacity, and retailers are gearing up for Boxing Day....  so lets see them superpreader events.

Hopefully we don't see a rise in hospitalizations / ICU load in 10 days...

And here is the problem. Don't wait for government hand outs. Everyone knew this was going to happen. My wife purchased 500 rapid tests kits for her business a few months ago, anticipating that covid would spike this winter. Knowing that if there was a spike, every province would be hunting for these test and supplies would be low.

I am wondering how many people will still head out to there New Years Eve events?

I'd love to know how she got 500 rapid tests... well done her.  I bought 1000 masks, mainly KN95's for me and family/staff and customers, and have facesheilds just in case...

I really don't think I want to know if I had/have it if I am asymptomatic/minor symptoms.  I'm boosted, wear KN95 all the time, and minimize any contacts outside my household.  Not sure what I'd do if I tested positive, especially on a rapid test that has a fairly high false positive rate...

It was actually pretty simple. She made contact with her pharmaceutical rep. At that time her rep had thousands of test kits. Now, O.

Not as bad as I expected, and the ICU numbers are encouraging so far... I am wondering if they will announce any numbers of Monoclonal Antibody therapies being used... those should mitigate ICU use and deaths...

Interesting numbers...

Latest CDC data by vaccine status:

Unvaccinated: 451 cases per 100k
Vaccinated: 134 cases per 100k
Boosted: 48 cases per 100k

Unvaccinated: 6.1 deaths per 100k
Vaccinated: 0.5 deaths per 100k
Boosted: 0.1 deaths per 100k

I'm sure these numbers will change, but even if they are close to being accurate, they are giant "get the jab" advertising. 

One thing to remember when looking at any of these stats... boosted people are actually dominated by people in the highest risk groups for bad outcomes.  The elderly, those with underlying conditions and immune compromised were prioritized for boosting.  So the small boosted numbers are even more impressive knowing the high unvaxxed numbers are among the "young, healthy, I don't need to worry" population...

I think the numbers are far higher, far, far higher, but we will never know because the unvaxxed are not getting tested, and just the sheer volume of people wanting tests being turned away, or tests not getting completed can't confirm more than a few thousand a day...

Do we need to lock down?  Yes.  Do we need to limit malls / retail / recreation?  Yes.  For a limited time. 

And, we need to create a repurposed health care facility dedicated to COVID cases only.  Staffed with vaxxed and boosted staff, keeping the infected away from compromised people, both in ICU's and hospitals.

Staff the new facility with the quick trained ICU nurses who can handle the specific treatments ICU COVID cases needs.  Am I the only one that sees this is an easy fix, with an simple and elegant solution?  Hospitals not having to deal with COVID in any way can operate as normal.  Cancer patients can attend treatment without fear.  People can get hip replacements, and other surgeries that are being postponed. 

Victoria General, or Seven Oaks..  easily switched.  Remote from other facilities, and have the infrastructure ready to go. 

Were I in charge, that would be job one for me.  Isolate the problem.

Fun my wife was just saying many of the surgeons in Manitoba feel that there should be one Hospital dedicated to surgery and recovery.
