Canadian Coronavirus: British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec are imposing restrictions as cases increase

“We are very concerned that the variables will become an increasing proportion of cases,” said Howard Ngo, Canada’s vice president of public health, and pleaded with Canadians not to personally gather with those who live in other homes. It has fallen sharply and has stabilized at a high level since it peaked in January, but the trend has reversed, even as vaccinations began. The average seven-day case rose to 5,086 on March 31, up 40 percent from the previous week and 72 percent from the start of the month, according to data from Public Health Canada. The number of changing cases in the country on March 31 was 70 percent higher than the previous week. British Columbia recorded the highest number of daily cases this week. Ontario has never had more coronavirus patients in intensive care, and across the country, public health officials and infectious disease experts are reporting that hospitalized patients with more severe disease are younger than they were during previous increases. The ages of younger people affected vary across the country, but in general they are under the age of 60. “As new variants proliferate, you’ll see Covid-19 kill faster and smaller,” Adalstein Brown, co-chair of the Committee of Scientists advising Ontario Prime Minister Doug Ford, said Thursday when he unveiled a new paradigm for the province. “It is spreading much faster than it was before, and we cannot vaccinate fast enough to break this third wave.” Alison Kelvin, a virologist at the Infectious Diseases Organization at the University of Saskatchewan, said the youngster could replace the old in hospitals because many of the older people who were once the most vulnerable have been vaccinated, the young are essential workers, and the variants cause more serious illnesses. . “Variables play by different rules,” said British Columbia, which has previously praised its handling of the pandemic on Monday that it will shut down indoor dining in bars, restaurants, worship services and indoor group fitness classes for three weeks. The variables were fueling the boom, county health official Bonnie Henry said, and Whistler Blackcomb ski resort was also ordered to close. Officials said it was the site of a “disturbing” cluster of cases of the P.1 variant, which was first identified in Brazil. About 83% of cases in Whistler have been in people between the ages of 20 and 39, according to figures from Vancouver Coastal Health. Quebec imposed strict restrictions this week in several regions that were recently eased, including closing schools, theaters, gyms, hair salons and hair salons. Unnecessary business activities for 10 days. Officials backtracked on the 9:30 p.m. curfew in those areas until 8 p.m. and imposed restrictions on capacity in places of worship. “People should basically stay at home, unless they urgently need to go to work,” said Quebec Prime Minister Francois Legault. Neighboring Ontario, Ford lifted its stay-at-home order across most of the province in February despite warnings from the commission advising it that it would lead to an increase in cases. On Thursday, he pulled out what he called “emergency brakes” at the county level, shuttered indoor and outdoor restaurants and imposed restrictions on the capacity of companies, weddings and funerals. The restrictions were less stringent than the measures the county implemented in December, which included the shutdown, drawn by Brown, who is also the dean of the college Dalla Lana of Public Health at the University of Toronto, grim picture of strained ICUs in the county based on what he heard from frontline health care workers. “Entire families are now appearing in intensive care,” he said. We have to separate families in ambulances and helicopters and move them to other areas that have a spare bed. … [One] The family ended up between three cities in three different hospitals, and all of them died. “Many patients in the hospital’s intensive care units are essential workers,” said Lavina Munshi, a critical care physician at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. Munshi, who is also part of the government advisory committee, said the new restrictions in Ontario are: It’s unlikely To do a lot to break those chains of transmission, she said, “The pandemic has really exposed the major inequalities that pre-existed in our healthcare system.” “A metric like paid sick leave is really something that we hope the government will consider employing.” Corona in Canada is the one that has been seen elsewhere, including in parts of the United States and in many European countries, where cases have also risen sharply, hospitals are under pressure and governments impose new restrictions on social gatherings, companies and schools, as the vaccine has begun to be introduced in Canada. A slow start, hampered in part by a lack of capacity to manufacture domestic vaccines and delays in importing doses from abroad. The pace has accelerated in recent weeks, but Canada is still lagging behind many of its peers. Net Canada gave 15.6 doses per 100 people, according to Our Scientist in data at the University of Oxford, which is about a third of the figure in the United States. Less than 2 percent of people in Canada have been fully vaccinated against the Coronavirus. In Alberta, which has delayed the move to the next phase of its reopening plan amid a surge in cases, Prime Minister Jason Kenny said this week that “in the race between vaccines and variants of covid-19, the variants win.” The launch has had bright spots, especially In long-term care homes, which were prioritized by vaccines after being devastated by epidemics that were responsible for at least 69 percent of coronavirus deaths in Canada, according to a report from the Canadian Institute for Health Information, data from Ontario last month showed that vaccination has reduced The relative risk of infection and death among residents of these facilities is estimated to be 89 percent and 96 percent, respectively, compared to a control group. Of unvaccinated elderly people who live outside of those places. Other regions have reported similar results, with Kelvin saying, “It’s frustrating that we have so few vaccines and such limited coverage.” “But we’re going through a vaccine ramp up now … so I hope we can have some kind of containment in the near future.”
