I can guarantee you I won't be going to a fitness studio, movie theater or gym likely for the rest of the year, #Toronto. These things are recognised as high risk for super spreader events and will get us shoved right back into lockdown over winter. Not worth it.
Indoor dining and bars? Not until our cases are a heck of a lot lower. Peak super-spreading events. You're going to get increased evidence from the U.S. on this one and also the U.K. in a week or two now their indoor dining is open and case numbers still quite high there.
Just to add, I recognise entirely the economic impact on these businesses. If my gym re-opens, I'll still pay my membership as long as they are offering virtual classes or outside activities that I can do from home.

As of today, @TOPublicHealth will report new #COVID19 data only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. This comes shortly after Quebec’s quickly-reversed decision to transition to weekly rather than daily updates. In this thread, I will argue TPH should restore daily updates.🧵
The #GTA is the epicentre of the #COVID19 epidemic in Ontario. As the country reopens, we must remain vigilant regarding the trajectory of the disease. The decision for #Toronto to provide less regular updates will make this picture needlessly murkier.
The official reasoning from TPH is that as daily case counts decline, daily numbers are less meaningful. There is some truth to this—we do have a tendency to seize upon individual numbers (the noise) rather than longer-term trends (the signal).…

I bet the government never thought about these when debating about Basic Income... what if until June 2021 #UBI had happened:

#BasicIncome #Canada #WhatIf #WhyDidntWeThinkofThis #OnlyInCanada
Most families would be able to stay afloat without the cost of borrowing, and by immediate stability it relieved the stress. Domestic Violence can be directly related to Financial Insecurity which increases the risk of increased Health Care costs and Justice system implications
Most families that have jobs if they did qualify for #BasicIncome probably wouldn't qualify in year 2. Especially if it was taxable income. However, the investment in the individual in one year can be enough to secure employment or higher education.

Netflix binges.
Late-night Skype sessions with a bottle of wine.
Stress baking.
With gyms, playgrounds, + pools closed, #covid19 is set to cause another public health crisis: an epidemic of inactivity.
Fortunately, there's one outlet available.
In many, if not most, cities in North America (unlike some European cities, which can be much denser) public parks provide ample room for outdoor exercise, strolling, giving the kids fresh air.
Great North American urban parks were planned after epidemics of TB, cholera, and typhoid—often explicitly to provide city people with salubrious public space to escape crowded neighborhoods.

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

Part of @OSCA_est2008's mission is to educate- here goes. In response to yesterday's incredible misunderstanding of an arrest by Special Constables on a #TTC streetcar (disclaimer- These comments are my own and do not reflect @TTC_CEU or anyone else at @TTC): #Toronto #topoli
Lots to unpack here. Stay with me:
1) SPCs and Fare Inspectors are NOT the same. SPCs are Peace Officers. Fare Inspectors are civilians.
2) The subject was not beat up/assaulted. He was arrested. Lawfully. By Peace Officers (SPCs). After responding to riders requesting help.
3) SPCs are authorized to carry prohibited weapons, such as pepper spray/foam and to use reasonable force BASED ON THE SUBJECT'S BEHAVIOUR.

Weil ich gestern in #Frankfurt beinahe (wieder Mal) von einem Radfahrer fast angefahren worden wäre, als ich als Fußgänger bei Grün die Kreuzung überquerte:

Unsere Partnerstadt #Toronto ist da sehr viel fußgängerfreundlicher!

@Stadt_FFM @OBPeterFeldmann #aussteigen
@Stadt_FFM @OBPeterFeldmann Dort halten Radfahrer tatsächlich an roten Ampeln an. Dort fahren Radfahrer wo sie hingehören: auf Radwegen oder auf der Straße.

Sie nehmen sich nicht großzügig heraus, Rechte von Schwächeren = Fußgängern zu beschneiden.

#aussteigen #Verkehrswende
@Stadt_FFM @OBPeterFeldmann In 12 Tagen #Toronto, in denen wir täglich 10-20 km durch die Stadt gelaufen sind, begegneten mir dort auf dem Bürgersteig ganze 3 ja wirklich DREI Radfahrer! 1 Kind. 1 anscheinend Betrunkener. Und 1 Mann vollgepackt mit Einkaufstüten.
