Thank you for sharing the song! I will share this news clip to show we all need to wear masks wash our hands to keep slowing the spread:
VANCOUVER -- A UBC expert says there is a possibility B.C. could return to lockdown conditions if COVID-19 case numbers continue to rise.
In the past week, the number of new cases has increased steadily. On July 10, provincial health officials announced 25 new cases, the biggest increase since early May.
Friday, July 10: 25 new cases July 9: 20 new cases July 8: 18 new cases July 7: 12 new cases July 6: 7 new cases July 5: 15 new cases July 4: 9 new cases
"I'm not losing sleep at this point over the increase in cases right now but it’s something that I think needs to be watched very carefully," said Dan Coombs, a UBC mathematics professor who studies epidemiology modelling and has previously worked with the province on its overdose response.
"We have to recognize that we’re in a very delicate position," he told CTV News Vancouver.
Coombs said it's difficult to say why B.C. is seeing this increase in positive case numbers. There have been no new outbreaks at long-term care homes, and cases appear to be affecting younger people while there are also more incidents of community infection.
His biggest concern comes from the other side of the world, where Melbourne is entering a second lockdown. Stage 3 stay-at-home orders were announced for the Australian city on July 8 after the state of Victoria recorded 191 new cases in a few days.
Vancouver and Melbourne have shared a “broadly similar experience,” said Coombs, noting a pressing but unanswered question remains whether the cases will continue to rise or if these numbers will flatten.
He doesn't think B.C. is poised to return scale back its reopening or return to lockdown measures. "I don't think we’re near that point yet, but the events in Australia in Melbourne indicate that this could be a possibility if things do increase rapidly."
The next update from the provincial health officer is expected Tuesday, when B.C. will report on three days' worth of data. 26 days ago
Thank you for sharing this beautiful tribute to all the front line workers. Many are working longer shifts, going without bathroom breaks, and so much more than most of us will ever know. So I add my thqnk you to all those workers working hard to take care of those who need help. 26 days ago
We can only hope that the deniers, the selfish, the misinformed somehow get the message that their inconsiderate actions will only prolong the agony of so many. Thank you for sharing this and may we all now share it with many others. Stay safe, be well. 27 days ago
Wearing my mask, it's only right. If one comes to Maine and you wish to shop any place here, it's mandatory! Even in counties there's either no or a few cases. It.Just.Is. In my county it is higher than we wish, it's such a popular area, wear.a.mask.
Why put anyone else at risk? Look at this lovely video. Think of their precious families. Wear.a.mask. 27 days ago
This was my life for decades - the life of a critical care R.N. Over 140 known nurses have lost their life to covid so far. Many more than that exist. Most of them were over 65. I'm 68 and retired. Some of my closest friends still work in the field. Speaking for every single one of them, alive or dead - stay at home as much as possible, practice social distancing, wear a mask CORRECTLY, wash your hands a lot, listen to medical experts. Also, call your representative and DEMAND that they have all of the protective equipment they need.
