Ontario, ICU patients with Covid-19 again over 200

TORONTO – For the first time in more than a month, the number of Covid-19 patients in Ontario’s intensive care units has exceeded 200: to be precise, 202 patients of whom almost half (91) are breathing with assistance of a fan. It is the highest number of people in intensive care with Covid-19 since last March 16. And it should also be considered that the admissions data are probably underestimated as some hospitals generally do not report the number of beds occupied during the weekend.  (more…)

Covid, boom of children in emergency rooms. From tomorrow fourth dose for the over 60s

TORONTO – This latest wave of Covid-19 seems to be affecting more children. Visits to hospital emergency rooms by children with severe symptoms are uphill since the pandemic began two years ago. In the last two weeks, 89 children have been hospitalized across the province of Ontario. And the pressure on the Ford government to restore the obligation to wear masks, following this recent spike in infections related to children, is growing. “We’re seeing guys who have a high fever. Children for whom it is painful to breathe, others who need oxygen supplementation,” said Dr. Brett Belchetz who serves in a Toronto emergency room.

Cancel Culture looms over Columbus Centre

TORONTO – Once burned, twice shy. So goes the popular saying advising all to operate with a healthy dose of skepticism. After a failed attempt to raze the Columbus Centre and Villa Colombo to the ground, in 2016-2018, to facilitate a private condominium development, it seems that the “inventive” minds at the Villa Charities Board are setting the groundwork for Round Two.

Poilievre announces his bid: the race for leadership has begun (and is over already)

TORONTO – Pierre Poilievre is ready to succeed Erin O’Toole at the helm of the Conservative Party. With his candidacy begins – and probably already ends – the race for the leadership of the Conservatives. It is indeed very difficult to imagine another potential candidate who has any chance of victory against Poilievre, a rising star of the Canadian right, respected by the various Tory souls and feared by the other parties. Forty-two years old, in parliament since 2004 as a representative of the Carleton district – in the Ottawa area – Poilievre has held numerous government positions under the administration of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper. He currently serves as Shadow Minister of Finance.

Ontario and Quebec, over 300 deaths over the weekend

TORONTO – The attention of the world of science is now entirely focused on hospitalizations and deaths. Counting infections from Covid-19 has become impossible, both due to the consequences of the limitations on access to molecular tests (now reserved for the “risk” categories, at least in Canada), and due to the fact that the vast majority of cases are asymptomatic: the virus circulates and, fact, we no longer know where, how, when and how much.

TORONTO – Non c’è più tempo da perdere, quantomeno più di quello perso finora fra esitazioni e non-decisioni. Il governo provinciale ha annunciato, ieri, che da lunedì sarà aperta la somministrazione della terza dose di vaccino a tutti i cittadini dai 18 anni in su.
