#Canadians, political leaders in provinces with Wave 2 #COVID19 epidemics

You MUST act NOW.

#Manitoba and #Quebec are in crisis. #Alberta, #Ontario, #Saskatchewan will be there soon.

This is NOT overreaction. PLEASE read this thread. Please share it. PLEASE ACT.

I've been watching per capita DEATHS in #Canada & high income peer countries with pop >20M

Peers: 🇹🇼🇦🇺🇰🇷🇯🇵🇩🇪🇮🇹🇬🇧🇺🇸🇪🇸🇫🇷


Because #Canadian #COVID19 case fatality rate (% of confirmed cases who die) has remained stubbornly high.

It's the 3rd highest, after 🇮🇹🇺🇸.
We will soon reach the highest case fatality rate among our peer countries & we've barely started Wave 2.

Look at this graph. Watch it every day. #Canada is NOT doing ok

When we get #COVID19 more of us die than in Spain, France, the USA.

Please, please see this and act.

There's something troubling about our #COVID19 death rates in the 2nd wave

Data: @covid_canada
The average #COVID19 per capita case number in our peer countries is higher than today's value for #Canada, although our number has increased by 23% in the last 7 days (not good).

This makes sense, though--our cases started growing later than in many European countries & US

For each #Province and #Territory in #Canada, here is the help that was offered to those living with #disabilities. This will include the #Federal help offered as well as any hoops #PWDs may have needed to jump through to get it and whether CERB was clawed back or not.
This is based on my own research, and if anyone sees anything I missed or may have gotten wrong please let me know.
Let's start with #Yukon
According to several articles, eligible families on #disability supports we're to get up to $400 to help with costs until August. Unknown what eligibility was.
#CERB was exempt from clawbacks.

🚨 #Ontario made the call today to re-implement modified stage 2 restrictions in #Ottawa, #Toronto, and #Peel due to the resurgence in #COVID19 cases and hospitalizations. 📈

(1/20) Some thoughts on where COVID-19 is going in the province. Thread.🧵⬇️
(2/20) This should not be a surprise to anyone. It has been apparent that COVID-19 is once again on an exponential trajectory in Ontario for at least several weeks.

(3/20) A confluence of recent events—the testing backlog, the transition to appointment-based testing, the suspension of contact tracing—have made daily case numbers in the province less reliable, especially in hard-hit areas like Toronto.

Alberta and BC are flattening. Skipped weekend reported lumped into Monday accounts for the spikes (3 day totals) but rolling weekly true trend point is now in better focus.
Quebec is a league of its own, the regions are reporting cases rates higher than the rest of the country.

I was curious what #Quebec's #COVID19 epidemic curve would like if they had stuck with their decision to report cases once per week on Thursdays, beginning June 25. See what I found.🧵
On the left, Quebec's actual epidemic curve. On the right, Quebec's epidemic curve if they had continued with reporting only on Thursdays. Cases highlighted in red on the left curve are not included in the curve on the right because they occurred after the most recent Thursday. Image
The picture is messier for individual health regions, particularly smaller ones. ImageImageImageImage
