The City of Toronto's Dangerous Game and the COVID-19 Outbreak at Seaton House

https://www.counterpunch.org/2021/02/12/the-city-of-torontos-dangerous-g...

"In spite of a COVID-19 outbreak affecting dozens of residents and staff at what was once Canada's largest shelter, Seaton House, the City of Toronto's Public Health unit and Shelter administration say they have no plans to change policies, procedures and reporting practices. It is a dangerous game the City of Toronto has been playing in the Shelter system for years and now with COVID-19 cases. In the case of Seaton House, the chickens appear to be home and roosting."

Pfizer-BioNTech tried to gouge the EU with $65 DOLLAR vaccine doses, German media report

https://on.rt.com/b283

"Drugmakers Pfizer and BioNTech voted to charge the EU Commission 54.08 EUR per dose of their coronavirus vaccine, according to German media reports. The jab would have cost more than 20 times that of a rival shot from AstraZeneca. Pfizer-BioNTech has made no profit on the sale of vaccines according to the Suddeutsche Zeitung, and during negotiations last year reportedly told EU officials that the 54.08EUR. price tag already included 'the highest percentage discount' offered to any developed country..."

Yikes! No wonder Trudeau is silent on what Canada paid...

"The CDC itself has acknowledged that COVID-19 was in the US in mid-December 2019, weeks before it was first identified in China. The attempt to blame everything on Beijing is a key strategy in Washington's new cold war."

Washington Post's 'Wuhan Lab' Conspiracy Theory Stands Exposed

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/02/24/pers-f24.html

"For nearly a year, The Washington Post has promoted the false claim that COVID-19 is a man-made virus released from China's Wuhan Institute of Virology. The campaign went into overdrive on February 5, when the Post published an editorial embracing the position of the Trump State Department, that 'a laboratory accident or leek' represents a 'plausible' explanation for the pandemic. That editorial was published under the headline, 'We're Still Missing the Origin Story of this Pandemic. China is still Sitting on the Answers.'

It called on the World Health Organization (WHO) team exploring the origin of the virus not to discount the Trump administration's claim that COVID-19 was a 'weaponized' virus that originated in a Chinese lab.

But the WHO team did exactly that, making clear that the 'Wuhan lab' theory did not meet its evidentiary criteria for further investigation - a polite way of saying that it is a lie. The WHO's statements have clearly thrown the Post into crisis.

The newspaper, which regularly promotes internet censorship in the guise that only 'authoritative' sources such as itself should be accessible to the public, finds itself exposed and at odds with the entire 'authoritative' scientific community..."

800,000 COVID-19 Deaths in Europe: Capitalism, Social Murder and the Case for Socialism

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/02/25/pers-f25.html

"Yesterday, the official death toll from the coronavirus pandemic across Europe surpassed 800,000. Death on this scale is so massive a blow to society that it is difficult to comprehend.

Mass spread of the virus is not inevitable. By following medical professionals' calls for strict contact tracing and shelter-at-home orders, a few countries like China, Taiwan and Vietnam dramatically limited the contagion.

In Europe, however, political representatives of the financial aristocracy needlessly condemned hundreds of thousands to death..."

Here's some good news. A poll by Leger shows that 89% of Canadians now say they will accept vaccination for covid. The same pollster found in November that only 56% said they would take a vaccination in the spring if available. Now, if only the governments could deliver the vaccine on time, we'd be in good shape.

Opinion: COVID-19 - Surfing the Third Wave

https://www.moonofalabama.org/2021/02/covid-19-surfing-the-third-wave.html

"The second wave of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has receded and the people have had enough of restrictions. There is immense pressure to end the lockdowns and many politicians will do as their voters [and donors] wish. But there will be a third wave and it is likely to become larger than the second one.

Below I try to explain why that is the case and what it means for our societies. My conclusions may sound alarmist, and I may be all wrong, but the scenario is neither impossible, nor am I the only one who thinks so..."
