There are now 631 in hospital, 50 in ICU, and we have 12 more deaths today.

93% of people in nursing homes have been vaccinated.

There are now 664 people in hospital, 50 in ICU, and for the second day in a row 7 more deaths. For the first time in awhile, there was no increase in our hospital numbers.

One thing I'd like to see (must be out there) is the historical data for overall MB hospitalizations and ICU numbers. It would be interesting to see how these change over time and how much larger they are than during "normal" times.

I would like to see that to. Good project for my Grandson this weekend.

For those thinking this is now a "milder form" and we can just skate through, I just heard about a woman going into ICU after her whole family testing positive for COVID, immediately put into a medically induced coma and is touch and go.  6 teen boys at home being taken care of by 77 year old grandma. 

A good friend is lending a hand, putting together food and necessities, trying to give grandma some support. 

Talk about heartbreaking.  Hope she beats the odds...

I'm not sure if I got this right, but truckers who are being prevented from crossing the border into the US by the US because they are not vaccinated are staging a "Truck in" rally at the Leg?  

Heard from someone the trucks involved were all "day trucks", ones that would never be used to long haul into the states...

Sigh...

"Freedom" from "Mandates" about vaccines that save lives 26 times out of 27...   I was just reading about teh vaccine ward where they have to take care of all the people teh vaccines have made sick... oh wait, no, those don't exist.  

One of my suppliers offered his staff $500 each to get fully vaccinated.  2 of them did not.  7 got COVID last week (some live together / carpool), 4 are back to work, but the 2 unvaxxed, still off and sick.  So they missed out on the $500, and now they are missing paychecks as well.

It is truly sad that this "Karen Konvoy" as it is being referred to is getting so much media coverage... and the actual heroes in health care are getting bupkiss.  Nurses are being mandated into 16 hour shifts 2 or 3 times a week, but little/no mention of that.  23 people died over the weekend, and its an "Oh, well, Omicron is due to run its course out soon".  And our "Premier" is suggesting the Prime Minister listens to these truckers points, and even suggests Ottawa adopts the catastrophic Manitoba policies that allow testing to replace vaccines. 

Until recently, I was pretty shielded from any personal experience with COVID.  But recently, suppliers and friends of co-workers have made this even more real for me.  People claiming that truckers are causing supply chain issues due to mandates is wrong.  Most truckers I know are fully vaxxed, and were first in line, because they knew they were going into warzones.  Especially ones crossing into the US, but also ones heading into Quebec or Alberta when the virus was raging there.  Like the infamous antivax burger shop (which has been dropped by delivery services because they do not follow health regulations), this tiny minority of underinformed denialists are profiting from spreading this misinformation.  I see them selling "Freedom" bumper stickers, or running "Go fund me"s, saw a story about a trucker in the US that raised $4 million off these lies.

It would be so nice if ever time one of these misinformation campaigns started, logical and informed people could "whack a mole" them into oblivion.  Unfortunately, these stories are too easy to trick people into believing, and the "conspiracy complicit" just dive right in, picking the pockets of their prey.

I'm not sure we want to go as hard as China or Hong Kong are going, killing hamsters for fear they may spread COVID and locking down entire buildings when one case is detected, or sending infected people into gov't hospitals and close contacts into poorly equipped gov't run quarantine camps, or even as strong as Australia with the whole Tennis thing (I agree with what they did because Joker lied, and it sends the right message to those that think they have privilege), but we need more mandates based on the science, especially the vaccines and ventilation in places like health care and schools.

According to the Canadian Trucking Association, the vast majority of truck drivers have been vaccinated. Sadly, it's this ignorant, uncouth, loud minority that gets the attention as they "fight for freedom" by driving their trucks to Ottawa, wasting fuel, money, and time, and disrupting others on the road. This sort of thing gets media coverage because it is disruptive.

On the "fortunate" side of all this, these narcissists won't have their demands met no matter how severe their tantrums. Their "causes" have no basis in reality and that's that.

Hopefully, a month from now we won't be talking about the Covidiot Clown Convoy, much in the same way the "Roll For Freedom" garbage a few years ago fizzled out in pretty short order.

Best of all, GoFundMe froze the fundraiser for this stupid convoy earlier today.
