    When you open for the best Xmas ever and let omicron in the front door Ö.

    When active cases jump 20% in couple of days it is not going to lead anything goodÖ

    Kenney is still a pile of shit and so is the upc party

    The one thing everyone can agree on is that Kenney is a steaming pile of shit. UCP, WRI, NDP, undecideds, everyone hates Kenney.

    Airlines are losing their shit cause the fear that the media is barfing out is causing people to panic and cancel trips. Airlines can't afford this, they care collapsing businesses. Don't cancel and fly, what was the point of of the vaccine then?

    if you listened to his statement, he upped the group gathering from 10/2 households to 10/10 households because guess what, nobody gave a shit and there was massive non-compliance. So Omicron was going to run through everyone no matter what. Let's hope the hospitalizations trend low as an overall % of infections. Which they should because Omicron has 1/10 the infection rate of the lungs vs delta or ancestral strain. So Omicron is potentially less "SARS" and more sniffles.

    EDIT: Kenney has always been out for numero uno AKA only kenney himself. Let's hope BJ can run a hostile takeover of UCP and prevent nutley from making me drive a bicycle 400 kms to Ft. McMurray.
    Tap, Rack, BANG!

    Iím almost certainly going to regret asking.

    But what exactly are you restriction people trying to avoid with further restrictions? What are we delaying? What do we think we are saving ourselves from?

    We have vaccines. We have treatments. We had time to make adjustments.

    Do you think we are staving off the end of humanity or something?

    Or are you just transparently using the pandemic to advance your personal political agendas now?

    you could argue that the area under the curve would remain the same but the peak would be spread out over a longer timeframe. Potentially keeping hospital capacity from being overrun. While Omicron is going to certainly turn out to be less severe, if all of AB is infected at once you could run the risk that a small % of a lot of people is still enough to exceed capacity. But that's also what field hospitals are for.

    If the people who end up in field hospitals are also mostly unvaccinated, and the standard of care in the field hospitals is markedly lower, then that's a win-win-win.

    Quebec went into lockdowns again because of hospitals. Thatís it. To protect a shit healthcare system from further collapse. Hospitals are the only reason we still have restrictions and itís going to be a never ending circle. We will never see 100% vaccination and we will never see treatment denied to unvaxxed. I hope Alberta and Sask are smart enough to let everything just take itís course as it is now and not freak out over daily cases.

    I just operate as if I no longer have access to ICU and to quality hospital service.

    I don't care about Kenney so tell me again how active cases, especially omicron, are meaningful?

    What if the area under the curve is infinite.

    In South Africa, birthplace of Omicron, early numbers are showing that the variant is roughly one third less likely to land its patients in hospital ó and is largely fended off by existing vaccines. Although, South Africa was always more resistant than Canada to COVID-19 on account of its younger population.

    A better comparison to Canada may be the experience of New York State, where Omicron is currently yielding some of the highest case numbers all pandemic while causing only a small rise in hospitalizations and appearing to have no effect whatsoever on the stateís COVID-19 death rate . Hospitalizations and deaths are lagging indicators and both could get far worse in the coming days, but itís a promising sign that Omicron may yet dodge much of the destruction wrought by prior waves.

    Maybe all the immune compromised people have been dead since the first/second/third wave and this thing is running out of unhealthy people to kill?

    If the province does put in restrictions I can see them doing things that don't impact indoor gatherings, for example like Quebec has done with cutting hours for restaurants, closing gyms etc.

    Someone told me the UofC cancelled exams and aren't going back to classes in January. Is this true??!
    They should only cancel the science ones so the factory can operate at 100% Orange Voter production.

    This. If masks have been doing nothing for the last year, unless you're wearing an N95, why are we even bothering anymore? We're vaxxed, it won't get any better. I'm 100% on-board with everything ES is saying about this. Pandemic over, let omicron fly, and if anyone gets fucked up for not choosing to be vaxxed, let em get fucked up.
