Canada 'at a crossroads': COVID-19 will keep spreading if behaviours don't change, Tam says

The latest federal modelling on the COVID-19 pandemic shows that in the short-term, Canada's epidemic is set to keep growing, predicting up to 155,795 total cases and 9,300 deaths by Oct. 2, unless Canadians re-adopt the same degree of health precautions they took in the early months of the pandemic.

Federal health officials released updated national COVID-19 modelling on Tuesday, as there continues to be a surge in new cases of the virus across several provinces, prompting renewed anxieties about Canada's ability to stave off a full blown second wave

There are currently nearly 11,000 active COVID-19 cases in Canada, while another 126,230 patients have recovered. To date, more than 9,200 Canadians have died from the novel coronavirus.

"Canada is at a crossroads and individual action to reduce contact rates will decide our path," said the federal presentation document provided to reporters.

************************************
We are tired of being demeaned for not following regulations to limit a virus spread. Millions of us have isolated, avoided contacts with family and friends, shopped cautiously and as infrequently as possible, let our hair grow, missed medical and dental appointments and generally behaved like hermits rather than members of a free society. We have suffered hours of contradictory messaging on isolation, distancing, face masks, vaccines, case numbers, mortality rates and a blur of doubletalk about the COVID crisis.

Here Tam is, once again, telling us that if we don't reduce contact rates, we will all get sick. She is admitting that she cannot manage the epidemic. She has wrecked our economy, put us deep into debt as a nation, cost millions their livelihood, and put millions more in danger of bankruptcy, but her containment plan is not working.

We currently have new infections in the 20 to 40 age range. They are fully aware of the regulations on distancing and masks. They cannot help but be as there are signs all over private and public places. They are rebelling against government regulations and restrictions of their freedoms. They insist on meeting and mingling.

As a health care professional, Tam should know that young adult hormones overcome common sense and convention. How could she miss such an obvious flaw in her plans? She cannot beat them into submission, and yelling at the rest of us has resulted in deserved derision.

When Tam blames increased infections on the people she claims to be protecting, she is abusing authority. Following her regulations to contain the virus is not our only option. We can change the government. If the fortune teller is unreliable, find another oracle.

Her COVID response is a disaster. There is no Plan B. The failure is unacceptable. Goodbye.

The 20 - 29 age group is has an especially strong surge in cases. Some interesting graphs here:

Your comments remind me of this scene from one of my favourite SF movies.

Was it the WHO or Trudeau's CCP contact that told her to say that?

Covid 19 has been a Godsend in that it's demonstrated how utterly inept government is at nearly every level offering a complete and embarrassing lack of leadership. When the real sh*t comes down it's going to be every man for himself.

Individually, I don’t think many people would stand a chance when society starts collapsing. Forming into groups of family and friends will greatly insure survival.

I will last as long as meds and ammo will allow. :D

Have to save up for decent scopes though.

Getting down on the mountain, gotta get down before the sh*t comes down, I want to get back to the mountains. #:-s
