Thread: I've tweeted before that I find this the most worrying graph in Ontario.

This figure shows that we are contact tracing less successfully in September than we were in June.
This is of course because people have more contacts. But we must invest in #TestTraceIsolate so that we can continually improve the effectiveness of contact tracing even while we increase the number of contacts we have.
Given that #TestTraceIsolate isn't good enough right now, we need blunter instruments in many areas while we improve #TestTraceIsolate.

Some blunter instruments:
-stop indoor dining
-encourage work from home
-lower social gathering limits
-travel advisories
-universities online

This is misleading. Covid-19 does occasionally kill healthy people who are in the prime of their lives.…
2. The letter says that the "consequences of the public health measures" are being borne disproportionately by "those in lower income groups, Black and other racialized groups, recent immigrants and Indigenous people."

I agree. But...
