Brandon just had its fifth-worst day of the pandemic in terms of single-day new cases... one day after Brandon had its worst day of the pandemic in terms of deaths. Respect that there are folks that want normal back but this is not good timing until there’s at least a better understanding of what kind of fallout we’re looking at from the holidays. Virus has more than shown what its capable of around the globe and the medical pros involved in decision-making have a handle on how it transmits. The more contacts, the more transmission. The more transmission, the higher the percentage of severe outcomes that potentially inundate the medical system... something that nobody wants to see. Hang in there folks. The weeks before Christmas are a perfect example how these exact measures can bring case numbers down. Christmas looks to have thrown a wrench in that but as long as we stick to same measures we should be able to get back on the kind of downtrend that makes a differences. Vaccines are also in the process of being deployed and as those numbers add up we get closer to the end of the tunnel!
Not Manitoba, but imagine these Sask stats give some idea. In late November, 6% of sources of community transfer of Covid were fitness centres. I know going to the gym is important to a lot of folks, but if something similar to that 6% could be expected here it’s just not added risk we can take on at the moment knowing that a percentage of cases will have serious outcomes and knowing how exponentially spread can increase from existing cases... and that's without getting into slippery slope of what else then expects to open if gyms do:https://saskatoon.ctvnews.ca/these-are-the-top-10-covid-19-transmission-sites-outside-the-home-in-sask-1.5202522
