Covid-19, “misinformation has killed 2,800 people”

TORONTO – Fake news, testimonials and personal narratives used to suggest a distorted interpretation of reality and social networks used as a means of spreading false information: this and much more is discussed in the report drawn up by the Council of Canadian Academies, a non-profit organization that examines complex scientific topics of public interest. Including Covid-19, as in the case of “Fault Lines” (Expert Panel on the Socioeconomic Impacts of Science and Health Misinformation), a work supported by a gigantic bibliography (over sixty pages of references) from which it clearly emerges that misinformation on the coronavirus has done great damage to Canadian society, contributing to more than 2,800 deaths and an estimated $30 million in hospital visits and intensive care. Deaths that could have been avoided and money that could have been spent elsewhere.  (more…)

Covid, sprecati miliardi in aiuti e vaccini

TORONTO – Il governo federale canadese è riuscito a distribuire rapidamente i vaccini anti-Covid ed elargire i benefici per la pandemia per aiutare le singole persone e le imprese, ma ha sprecato milioni di dosi e ha concesso miliardi di benefici a destinatari non idonei: è quanto ha affermato ieri l’Auditor General, Karen Hogan, che ha dato al governo guidato da Justin Trudeau una “pagella” sulla gestione della pandemia… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Covid, billions wasted in aid and vaccines

TORONTO – Canada’s federal government was able to rapidly distribute Covid vaccines and pandemic benefits to help individuals and businesses, but wasted millions of doses and awarded billions of benefits to ineligible individuals: that’s what was stated today by the Auditor General, Karen Hogan (in the pic above, from today’s conference on YouTube), who gave the government led by Justin Trudeau a “report card” on the management of the pandemic.

Vaccino Covid, in Ontario sprecate 3,4 milioni di dosi

Fraudolent COVID-19 aid payments, $ 3,2 billions to “crafty” Canadians

TORONTO – We Italians, ususally, are considered “crafty”: people who try to get around the rules to obtain personal advantages. It’s actually a cliché, but even if it were true… well, we found who could compete with us: the Canadians, who would have pocketed 3.2 billion dollars without being entitled to it, by providing false data.

Moore caldeggia l’uso delle mascherine

TORONTO – Sì alle mascherine ma su base facoltativa. Come previsto, il Chief Medical Officer of Health dell’Ontario Kieran Moore ha “raccomandato vivamente” agli abitanti dell’Ontario di indossare mascherine in tutti gli ambienti pubblici al chiuso, comprese le scuole e le strutture per l’infanzia, ma non si è spinto oltre. Nessun obbligo di farne uso… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Covid, colpo di coda: “C’è una nuova ondata”

TORONTO – La pandemia è tutt’altro che finita: il Covid-19 si sta riprendendo anche in Canada, così come in altri Paesi: l’Italia, per esempio. E ciò “non dovrebbe sorprendere”, come ha affermato il biologo evoluzionista genomico della McGill University, Jesse Shapiro. “Anche solo sulla base della diminuzione dell’immunità, con il tempo trascorso dall’ultima infezione o l’ultimo richiamo di vaccino, era prevedibile una nuova ondata”, ha detto Shapiro a varie testate giornalistiche. Nella maggior parte delle province canadesi, infatti, l’immunità non è così alta come potrebbe essere e per questo la Publich Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) ha già fatto appello a tutti affinché si “aggiornino” con i loro vaccini… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Canada, the gasp of Covid-19: “There is a new wave”

TORONTO – The pandemic is far from over: Covid-19 is growing again also in Canada, as in other countries: Italy, for example. And that “shouldn’t come as a surprise,” as McGill University genomic evolutionary biologist Jesse Shapiro put it. ““Even just based on waning immunity, the time since the average person had their last infection or their last booster, a wave was expected,” Shapiro told various news agencies.  (more…)

Science Table: “Sistema sanitario alla frutta”

TORONTO – Un finale “col botto”, come si suol dire: uscendo di scena, il Covid-19 Science Advisory Table – istituito per far fronte alla pandemia e disciolto in settembre – ha tracciato un quadro a tinte fosche dello stato della sanità in Ontario. Distribuzione ineguale dell’accesso alle cure primarie in tutta la provincia, carenza di dati su quella stessa assistenza e gravi problemi di comunicazione generali, impossibilità di contattare i medici di famiglia, personale sanitario allo stremo.

Ontario’s Science Table: “The healthcare system is falling down”

TORONTO – A finale shock: exiting the scene, the Covid-19 Science Advisory Table – set up to deal with the pandemic and dissolved in September – painted a gloomy picture of the state of health in Ontario. Unequal distribution of access to primary care throughout the province, lack of data and serious general communication problems, inability to contact family doctors, exhausted health personnel. A disaster, in short.  (more…)

Hesitant parents, vaccinated only 6% of children

 

TORONTO – The Covid vaccine does not convince parents. The number of children under the age of five who are vaccinated against the virus in Ontario is even lower than the relatively small figure that many experts expected. Despite being available for two months, about 6% of the youngest age group have received the first dose.

Due canadesi su tre hanno avuto il Covid-19, gli esperti: “È una svolta”

TORONTO – Potrebbe sembrare una cattiva notizia, ma in realtà è buona: la maggior parte dei canadesi ha contratto il Covid-19 da quando Omicron e le sue sottovarianti altamente contagiose hanno fatto la loro comparsa. Praticamente, due canadesi su tre hanno avuto il coronavirus. E la notizia è buona perché, secondo gli esperti, questo, aggiunto alle massicce vaccinazioni fatte, genera un’ampia immunità o, comunque, una maggiore protezione contro le forme più gravi di Covid… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

TORONTO – It might sound like bad news, but it’s actually good: most Canadians have contracted Covid-19 since Omicron and its highly contagious sub-variants first appeared. Virtually two out of three Canadians have caught the coronavirus. And the news is good because, according to experts, this, added to the massive vaccinations made, generates broad immunity or, in any case, greater protection against the more serious forms of Covid.  (more…)

Ontario: in classroom without masks, at least for now

TORONTO – Ontario school students will not have to wear masks during the fall semester: the Ministry of Education confirmed it today. The use of protective equipment will be voluntary and masks will be available to students upon request. Rapid tests will also remain available in schools. 

The fall semester 2022 will therefore be the first, complete, since the beginning of the pandemic, in which Ontario students will not be forced to wear masks. Unless the situation worsens and the reintroduction of security measures is not necessary. On this, however, the government has not yet expressed itself: the details of a possible “plan B” in the event of an increase in infections are lacking. (more…)

The Omicron “tsunami” infected seventeen million Canadians

TORONTO – More than a new wave: it’s a tsunami. Omicron has attacked (also) Canada, making the infections from Covid-19 increase exponentially, despite – after the winter wave – the virus seemed to be in a downward phase. In fact, data from the Canadian task force reveal how quickly Omicron and its sub-variants spread across the country as early as the end of 2021 and early this year. The task force reported that as many as 17 million Canadians were infected in just five months, between December 2021 and May 2022. This means that the daily average of new infections was over 100,000. A record, enough to push the members of the task force themselves to define the wave “Omicron tsunami”.  (more…)
