Canada may see COVID-19 resurgence despite full vaccinations, experts say

https://globalnews.ca/news/7883901/covid-19-resurgence-full-vaccination/

"Canada could see a resurgence of COVID-19 cases even if the country manages to fully vaccinate a majority of its population, according to experts. University of Saskatchewan epidemiologist Nazeem Muhajarine told Global News on friday that the possibility of new or existing variants of COVID-19 spreading throughout Canada could lead to a possible resurgence in new cases..."

I'm sure Big Pharma will be only too eager to offer solutions.

The coronavirus is now spreading faster in Manitoba than in any other province or state in Canada, the United States or Mexico, with Indigenous people and people of color hit disproportionately hard.

Manitoba is the most racist province in the country and likely outdoes all US states as well. Of course indigenous people are dying.

It's shocking how bad things are in Manitoba. The death of a 31 year old mother of two enroute to an medi-vac flight to Ottawa (put in an induced coma for the flight and subject to cardiac resuscitation at least once on the tarmac and maybe a second time on the return the the Brandon hospital) - well she is the poster child of the travesty of our handling of the pandemic. I hope with all my heart that there was no systemic or overt racism at play in the decisions made in this young woman's care.

On US Memorial Day: American ruling class declares pandemic 'over' as 500 die every day

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/06/01/pers-j01.html

"...Memorial Day 2021 had an additional and equally sinister purpose. It was an effort at promoting mass amnesia about COVID-19, encouraging the population to forget about the coronavirus pandemic - the 600,000 or more dead, the 500 dying every day, the 100,000 new cases a month - in favor of a round of celebrations and speeches that will themselves worsen the pandemic, creating super-spreader events that could potentially infect tens if not hundreds of thousands more. 'America is roaring back!' declared NBC.

Biden has portrayed the rollout of vaccinations in the US as a public health miracle, while implicitly blaming his predecessor for the massive death toll. He never acknowledges the likelihood that sometime later this year, particularly if there is a fall or winter surge, COVID-19 will have killed more Americans under his administration than under that of Donald Trump.

Globally, more than 10,000 are dying each day worldwide, mainly in regions where a small faction of the population have received the vaccine because of the hoarding taking place among high-income nations pursuing the policy of vaccine nationalism. Though the official global estimate indicates there have been 3.5 million deaths, new studies place the excess death toll at over ten million.

The truth is, there can be no return to normal in any country so long as the coronavirus has free reign to infect, kill and mutate in a population of billions around the world..."

PS: note to Justin Trudeau. Do NOT succumb to US pressure and drop restrictions on the border. Canada's COVID problem came from there not China.

interesting.  

in only one sample, though apparently 2x ~reliable tests.

but, of course, this wouldn't preclude a "lab leak"; gain-of-function work had been ongoing for years.

dr campbell is pretty adament - overly, i thought, racist i thought - that the covid originated out of wuhan, and was being spread by chinese, "agricultural workers, informal, probobly cash" and such, generally travelling around the world, bespoiling our sewer systems.  which may all be the case, but something about the way he said it; i found way more problematic than the articles which queried the big players like scientists fucking with things they shouldn't be, and governments.

so, the wild vs help-from-a-lab question remains... a question.

campell also added something at the end to the effect that the 2019-20 flue might have been partly covid, we'll never know...  wtf?

i generally like dr campbell take on things, as far as it goes.

We need an inquiry into the origins of the pandemic

https://gowans.blog/2021/06/05/we-need-an-inquiry-into-the-origins-of-th...

"...The cause of the pandemic, not the original outbreak, but the development of a potentially controllable zoonosis into an outbreak of global reach, is already known: It was the failure of the United States and its allies to take quick and decisive action in February 2020 at a time the catastrophe in embryo could have been aborted.

Rather than mobilize public health measures to extinguish small fires and prevent their spread, as Beijing did, the United States and countries that followed its lead, did precious little, unwilling to disrupt business activity and the continued tranquil digestion of profits. It is US and allied non-feasance - that is, human inaction - that transformed a preventable catastrophe into a full blown calamity that has so far produced over 3.7 million deaths.

As the editor of the British medical journal The Lancet, Richard Horton, recalled, 'The United States of America wasted the whole of February and March before they acted. That is the human tragedy of COVID-19. Thanks to the work of Chinese doctors and scientists working in international collaboration, all of this info [showing  a deadly virus had emerged that had no treatment and could be passed between people] was known in January but for reasons that are difficult to understand, the world did not pay attention..."

Scientists and doctors issue warnings as UK infections continue to rise

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/06/08/couk-j01.html

"Cases of COVID-19 are growing exponentially in the UK, driven by the more infectious Delta variant and made possible by the government's lifting of public health restrictions. 5,683 cases were recorded yesterday, the fifth day in a row with more than 5,000 cases. A total of 35,796 cases have been recorded in the last seven days, 52.9% more than the previous week.

Scientists are warning that the government's planned removal of all public health restrictions on June 21 must not go ahead..."

You would think Dr Campbell, and others, would have followed the links to the actual paper
Which comes with the caution:

"This article is a preprint and has not been peer-reviewed [what does this mean?]. It reports new medical research that has yet to be evaluated and so should not be used to guide clinical practice."

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.06.13.20129627v1

If that was not cautionary enough, Dr Campbell could have looked at the comment on that same page from this June 2, which helpfully supplies another link:

"The authors of the paper have now published a second study that states their earliest positive sewage sample is from January 15th 2020 and does not make any reference to this preprint":

The Forever Virus

https://t.co/9uOEzN8SHm

"Global herd immunity is now unreachable. How should governments' strategy in the fight against COVID-19 change in response.

'The world will not reach the point where enough people are immune before the emergence of dangerous variants - ones that are more transmissible, vaccine resistant and even able to evade current diagnostic tests.

Such supervariants could bring the world back to square one. It might be 2020 all over again. Rather than die out, the virus will likely ping-pong back and forth across the globe for years to come..."

And Big Pharma is smiling.
