1/4 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: With slowed epidemic growth & the Victoria Day long weekend upon us, getting outside is top of mind. At the same time, many Canadians are concerned about how we can go out safely. This is a reasonable concern.
2/4 As we continue down the curve, there are lessons to be learnt from other countries that are ahead of us on this path. Move too soon, relax too much & COVID-19 will come back. #COVID19 is still active in many areas of 🇨🇦, so we must remain vigilant.
3/4 The reality is that #COVID19 is still spreading in some areas and it will be with us for the foreseeable future. So as local authorities continue to slowly reopen recreational, social, & economic spaces, the right & safest way to go out is to go OUT SMART. #OutSmartEpidemics

1/43 So far I've supported @fordnation's response to the #COVID19 pandemic in #ONpoli, but this marks a turning point that recklessly plays with fire & a return to partisan agendas that will explode the death rate in rural Ontario

See #THREAD for details…
2/43 #THREAD Re #COVID19 in #ONpoli #CDNpoli cc @fordnation

Although I appreciate the political pressures on Premier Ford to re-open the economy, he's become insulated in a #TOpoli bubble that is utterly tone deaf & detrimental to Conservative strongholds in cottage country
3/43 #THREAD Re #COVID19 in #ONpoli #CDNpoli cc @fordnation

I'm speaking in these partisan terms in an effort to get through to Premier Ford, that his predetermined decision to send urban Ontario to cottage country for the May 2-4 holiday is so mistaken it will cost him votes

1/8 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: outbreaks in vulnerable settings and underserved populations continue to drive the #epidemiology of COVID-19, reminding us of the critical importance of addressing inequities. #ProtecttheVulnerable
2/8 Warmer weather & longer days can make us feel a bit antsy, as we sympathise with the kids in the back seat who wearily ask – Are we there yet? Though we’re not quite, we are on the right track & getting closer all the time. #COVID19 #KeepItUp
3/8 #COVID19 has exposed the fragility of circumstances for some populations – especially those living in long-term care homes or group housing + those experiencing homelessness or vulnerable indigenous communities. #ProtecttheVulnerable

1/9 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: We still face considerable challenges, including the need to extinguish ongoing outbreaks + we need to continue ramp up of testing to find/manage persistent chains of transmission in communities. #TestandTrace #CrushtheCurve
2/9 Nevertheless, today is a great day to consider the progress we’ve made in better understanding #COVID19. There are still a lot of unknowns, but the pace & expanse of evidence-based discovery & #science #innovation is inspiring. #GoScience #SlowtheSpread #PlanktheCurve
3/9 From discovery & genetic sequencing of the virus in January, to building our understanding of #COVID19 disease characteristics & spread through tried & true applied #epidemiology & #publichealth investigation, we’ve ↑ knowledge. #PlanktheCurve

1/6 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: As we continue to make progress to #SlowtheSpread of COVID-19, we are experiencing bumps in the road that remind us we can’t let down our guard. #PhysicalDistancing remains vitally important. #StayAtHome
2/6 We’ve got to act quickly to address weak points before the virus is introduced to other vulnerable settings. We can’t let the virus jump ahead of us again. #ProtecttheVulnerable #PlanktheCurve #CrushtheCurve
3/6 We learned a hard lesson when the virus was introduced to long term care settings. Cases quickly accelerated into large outbreaks with devastating consequences that are now a driving force behind the #epidemiology of #COVID19 in 🇨🇦. #ProtecttheVulnerable #OlderAdults

1/8 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: Recovery & the question of what will be our new normal is on everybody’s mind right now. For now, we are still a ways off & as always, practicing #physicaldistancing is vitally important. #ProtecttheVulnerable
2/8 #Publichealth authorities are closely monitoring for continued and stable slowing of the #COVID19 epidemic in 🇨🇦, while carefully considering approaches to ease public health restrictions when & where this may be possible.
3/8 We cannot lose sight that this is a marathon and we are going to have to plan, pace ourselves and not take any sharp turns. Also, many unknowns remain and there is no 100% proven path to a new normal. #COVID19

1/8 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: current data (~ 2 weeks behind present), show that our collective efforts over the past several weeks have been able to slow down the epidemic. The weeks ahead will tell if we’ve kept up our efforts.
2/8 🇨🇦’s report card on #StaycationfortheNation is yet to come in - while we’re all hoping that we’ve maintained #SlowtheSpread of #COVID19, we must double down on efforts to stamp out outbreaks in high risk settings. #StayHomeSaveLives
3/8 Deaths have disproportionately impacted our #OlderAdults, with over 90% of reported deaths occurring among those aged > 60 years and almost 50% of deaths linked to long term care home outbreaks. #COVID19

1/10 As Canadians continue #PhysicalDistancing, we are closely monitoring for signs that our efforts are having an impact to #SlowtheSpread of #COVID19. #StayAtHome #PlankTheCurve
2/10 It’s taken just over 3 months for the first cluster of #COVID19 cases to spread and establish the pandemic. It is hard to take in how our lives have changed in such fundamental ways over this short period. #COVID19
3/10 At this point, we still don’t have all the answers, but there is some cause for cautious optimism coming from our epidemiological data. #COVID19 #COVIDCoping #WeWillGetThroughThis #cavabienaller

1/4 #GOC modelling numbers help us to visualise how the epidemic might unfold over the coming months, so we can plan accordingly. Predicted outcomes (best-case vs. worst-case scenarios) of these models are dependant on our actions. #COVID19 #StayHome
2/4 The numbers are hard to bear but knowing what the options are, I know we are all convinced that crushing this epidemic curve is the right way out of a bad trajectory. #FlattentheCurve ➡️ #PlanktheCurve #CrushtheCurve
3/4 This is because our actions (#publichealth measures, #StayHome, #PhysicalDistancing) are key parameters or assumptions used in the model to predict future outcomes, like the rate of growth/direction of the #COVID19 epidemic trajectory. #PlanktheCurve

1/9 To stay healthy & prevent spread of #COVID19 we MUST use multiple prevention measures TOGETHER like keeping 2 metres away from others, frequent #handwashing, covering coughs… – we need layers of protection. #Olderadults #LayerUpCOVID
2/9 As #COVID19 research emerges, #Publichealth experts & researchers across 🇨🇦 critically evaluate the strength of new evidence before recommending safe ways to change practices. Prevention MUST be layered. #LayerUpCOVID
3/9 🇨🇦’s Special Advisory Committee on #COVID19 reached consensus on NON-MEDICAL masks/FACIAL COVERINGS’ use in public as an added layer of protection to help YOU PROTECT OTHERS by reducing spread of droplets, even before you have symptoms. #LayerUpCOVID

1/3 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: new outbreaks in hospitals & long-term care facilities and case/clusters involve vulnerable populations, including Indigenous communities. COVID-19 is a serious health threat for everyone.

#PlanktheCurve Image
2/3 First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities are among the most vulnerable and face unique challenges from #COVID19 related to distance & underlying health concerns. A single case in these communities is high cause for concern.

3/3 #Olderage is a risk, but no one can predict when critical illness will strike any age; young people are being hospitalized & there have been deaths in those as young as their 20s. #COVID19 #StayHomeSaveLives #ProtecttheVulnerable

1/7 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: ongoing community spread, cases/outbreaks linked to high-risk settings and deep concern and sadness at increasing numbers of deaths reported.
2/7 The majority of #COVID19 deaths in Canada have been among those aged 80 years or older. Keeping seniors safe is a critical part of what 🇨🇦 needs to do. #ProtecttheVulnerable
3/7 Each day we are adding to our knowledge of #COVID19, keeping pace with the rapid growth of new scientific evidence as it emerges. This has been and continues to be critical to our decision-making. #Innovation

THREAD (please read & RT)

As you've noticed, the guidelines coming from public health have been changing. Please know: in a pandemic, things change rapidly. As we endeavor to pass along the most up-to-date info, sometimes it means changing what we're telling you to do. (1/8)
For instance, up until recently the guidance for returning international travellers (who were asymptomatic) said it was ok to go for a walk or walk your dog. That is no longer the case. We understand that this is frustrating, and we apologize for any stress it has caused. (2/8)
But through it all, one thing hasn't changed: we are all in this together. We see your efforts to #PlankTheCurve. We know they're not easy, and we thank you.

If you need info, we've built several websites for you. Our main #COVID19 page is here

1/7 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦 right now - spring is coming and I’ve got a checklist of concerns and necessities to #SlowtheSpread and #FlattentheCurve, #PlanktheCurve as we move into warmer weather:
2/7 #Snowbirds, #MarchBreak & other travellers coming into 🇨🇦 now/in the coming days:

A) You MUST respect the mandatory quarantine now in place, which requires you to go straight home, #StayHome & #SelfIsolate for 14 days.
B) DO NOT stop along the way. Do arrange groceries & essentials by phone, online or through friends, neighbours, community.

I’m not poor today. But I grew up poor.

As a survival tactic, all the poor people I was exposed to, adapted to living within their means and making do with what they had access to in order to survive. They didn’t waste money to hunt down resources.
I suggest you adapt very soon.

I’m not being a smart ass. I’m giving you unsolicited advice on survival skills I used to survive my own childhood. Learned from my family who survived 100% intact from the devastation of the Great Depression in Alberta, with no govt help.
Not one of my great grandparents’ children died. There were 11 children and several of their nieces and nephews from their siblings who were placed with them while their parents worked for below subsistence wages and sent what little they could home to the farm.

1/6 For #PhysicalDistancing #NewZealand has introduced the concept of knowing & staying inside your bubble.
#Innovation #SlowtheSpread #StayHomeSavesLives #PlanktheCurve #ProtecttheVulnerable
2/6 This is a great way to conceptualise the zone-of-protection that we all need to have around us - to keep the virus out and keep us safe. #COVID19 #PhysicalDistancing #StayHomeSavesLives #PlanktheCurve
3/6 Although optimal protection comes when each person has their own separate bubble that is a 2-metre circumference around us, people cohabitating or self-isolating together can make a bubble together.

1/5 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦 right now:
2/5 #COVID19 cases continue to increase across the country as new cases from previous exposures appear. Right now is an extremely critical time to #FlattentheCurve. We need to get it right and GET.THIS.DONE! Keep on guard 🇨🇦. We must #PlanktheCurve.
3/5 🇨🇦 is keeping a close eye on #COVID19 severity. This includes monitoring the percent of cases hospitalised & in intensive care. These indicators, as well as percent of deaths, are not just influenced by the virulence of the virus. #ProtecttheVulnerable

1/6 We now have a snapshot of the severity of #COVID19 in 🇨🇦, where 6.1% of all cases require hospitalization, 2.6% of all cases are critically ill needing ICU care and 1% of cases have been fatal. #ProtectTheVulnerable #FlattentheCurve #PlanktheCurve
2/6 🇨🇦’s 1% case fatality rate means our healthcare system is not currently overwhelmed. But we can further reduce fatalities by preventing #COVID19 in vulnerable populations like residents in long-term care. #ProtectTheVulnerable
3/6 The seriousness of #COVID19 cannot be overstated. Older adults and those with medical conditions are at highest risk BUT younger people are not immune. #FlattentheCurve #PlanktheCurve #StayHomeSavesLives

1/8 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦 right now:
2/8 Day over day increases in #COVID19 cases and a fundamental shift from mostly travel-related cases in the early part of the outbreak, to now over half of new cases being linked to community spread.

#FlattentheCurve #PlanktheCurve
3/8 #GOC advisories to avoid non-essential travel have reduced travel related cases, but we still need to do all that we can to reduce the impact and spread from travel imported cases. #COVID19

1/7 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦 right now:
2/7 #COVID19 cases continue to ↑ in 🇨🇦. Of the new cases, those that are linked to community spread now outnumber cases linked to travel or close contact with a traveller.

#SocialDistancing #FlattentheCurve #PlanktheCurve
3/7 Some community cases can be traced back to a known exposure or setting but, for others, the source of exposure is unknown - the latter are the most problematic #COVID19

1/5 A key reason we need to #SlowtheSpread and #FlattentheCurve is to buy time for research and innovation to occur.
2/5 🇨🇦 has stepped up on a wide range of research, from biomedical solutions such as diagnostics, vaccines and treatments, to social and behavioural science. #SlowtheSpread #COVID19 #Innovation #TeamCanada #FlattentheCurve #PlanktheCurve
3/5 Canadians can be proud that our researchers are part of the @WHO large global SOLIDARITY trial that is designed to rapidly gather data on the most promising therapies for #COVID19.
