I notice there was no mention of getting people back to work. Canada's average daily death totals are now averaging in the single digits. Meaning if you die in Canada today, the cause is 100 times more likely to be something other than Corona. The 7 day average peaked back on May 7th at ~185/day. I say approximately because there was a huge dump of 165 old Quebec deaths into the June 1st report, so the exact number at peak depends on how you average in those 165 misplaced deaths.

Way past time to get people back to work and forget the mask BS as well. Every study ever done concluded those masks were useless against viruses. Plus around 50% of the masks I see have a gap around the nose and about 90% have a gap on the sides. IOW people are breathing around the masks rather than through them. On the plus side no danger of hypoxia when the mask does not make a tight seal. And as I pointed out earlier all indicators suggest the virus is way past its most lethal period, or maybe they are just running out of nursing homes to infect.

Stop confusing him with numbers. Canada's "Little Man" is waiting for government to look after him.

Good to see that fatuous ass, Anthony Fauci, losing his federal government pulpit to Dr. Scott Atlas, someone who understands herd immunity and the enormous societal cost of futile lock downs, which only delay infection from COVID-19.

The Sound Of Settled Science

Why Is The Media Suppressing Information About Hydroxychloroquine’s Effectiveness Against COVID?

Quote:
On July 31, in a column ostensibly dealing with health care “misinformation,” Washington Post media critic Margaret Sullivan opened by lambasting “fringe doctors spouting dangerous falsehoods about hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 wonder cure.”

Actually, it was Sullivan who was spouting dangerous falsehoods about this drug, something the Washington Post and much of the rest of the media have been doing for months. On May 15, the Post offered a stark warning to any Americans who may have taken hope in a possible therapy for COVID-19. In the newspaper’s telling, there was nothing unambiguous about the science — or the politics — of hydroxychloroquine: “Drug promoted by Trump as coronavirus game-changer increasingly linked to deaths,” blared the headline.

Written by three Post staff writers, the story asserted that the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19 is scant and that the drug is inherently unsafe. This claim is nonsense.
Horowitz: Study: In 2 weeks in Denver, more people died of heart attacks in lockdown than of coronavirus

Quote:
Something uncanny happens when the government exaggerates the threat level of one particular virus and tells people they must stay home. People get scared and stay home … even when they are having a heart attack. A new study indicates that more people might have died at home from untreated heart attacks for fear of coming to hospitals than from coronavirus in Denver, Colorado. This would be yet another example of the man-made plague of lockdown and fear causing more deaths than the virus itself.

A group of doctors at Denver Health Medical Center led by Brian Stauffer were baffled by what many other hospitals have noticed across the world – that the number of people coming into emergency rooms for heart attacks plummeted during the lockdowns in late March and April. Rather than positing some voodoo explanation of coronavirus curing heart attacks, Stauffer’s teams observed an obvious anomaly in the data on emergency calls that gives away the culprit in this mystery.
Could the key to COVID be found in the Russian pandemic?

Quote:
The killer came from the east in winter: fever, cough, sore throat, aching muscles, headache and sometimes death. It spread quickly to all parts of the globe, from city to city, using new transport networks. In many cities, the streets were empty and shops and schools deserted. A million died. The Russian influenza pandemic of 1889-90 may hold clues to what happens next — not least because the latest thinking is that it, too, may have been caused by a new coronavirus.

In addition to the new diseases of Sars, Mers and COVID-19, there are four other coronaviruses that infect people. They all cause common colds and are responsible for about one in five such sniffles, the rest being rhinoviruses and adenoviruses. As far as we can tell from their genes, two of these coronaviruses came from African bats (one of them bizarrely via alpacas or camels), and two from Asian rodents, one of them via cattle.

‘A Major Advance’: Trump Announces COVID-19 Treatment; Experts Cite Mortality Reduction of Up to 35%

Quote:
The Food and Drug Administration on Sunday issued an “emergency use authorization” for transfusions into COVID-19 patients of plasma donated by those who have recovered from the disease, citing data showing a significant – up to 35 percent in some cases – reduction in mortality rates.

Americans who have recovered from the disease caused by the coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan late last year are being urged to donate plasma, the liquid component of blood, for injection into COVID-19 patients.

Speaking at the White House, President Trump, FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn, and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, all voiced optimism about the “convalescent plasma” treatment, as America and the world continues to confront the deadly respiratory disease.
A Pandemic of Socialism

Quote:
In mid-March of 2020, the United States of America became a socialist country, despite President Trump's promise in his State of the Union address one year prior. To those who lost their non-essential jobs, those who met empty shelves, those who discovered that their "free" education was too costly, those driven insane by incessant fear-mongering, and those faced with capricious and nonsensical restrictions — welcome to socialism. Deceived by the arrogance of science and appeal to authority, or perhaps with false science to mask nefarious motives, public health and safety were used as a contrivance to replace liberty, freedom, and democracy with the Game of Socialism, in which (elected) tyrants play with our lives. Do health and safety trump liberty and freedom, and must we sacrifice one for the other?

The Constitution of the United States provides for no limitation of our liberty, freedom, or democracy in an emergency. Is this because our Founding Fathers had never heard of the Black Death (1347, multiple) or the Great Plague of Marseille (1720) or the Yellow Fever from the Caribbean (1793) or smallpox (vaccine 1770)? Why, then, did they limit powers in the face of such great calamities?

Absent such powers, the federal government cannot take advantage of panic, real or contrived, to tyrannize the states or the people, and with the 9th and 14th Amendments, neither can the states (or cities) tyrannize their people. The protections of our Constitution have been eroded over the last century by a crisis culture that has people abandoning liberty for (illusory) safety, as notes Robert Higgs,
Wuhan Flu

Quote:
This is news.
Study: Asymptomatic index cases infected 1 out of 305 close contacts in Hubei. (This might be why China no longer counts asymptomatic infections as cases.)https://t.co/f5cnUJvKio pic.twitter.com/ALx5iIb0UU

— Phil Kerpen (@kerpen) August 18, 2020
More: In summary, all the 455 contacts were excluded from SARS-CoV-2 infection and we conclude that the infectivity of some asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 carriers might be weak.

Related: 55 flights into Canada in August carried passengers infected with COVID-19
Bold mine.

One Flu Out Of The Wuhan Nest

Quote:
Where IS the Wuhan virus researcher who was named as Patient Zero?
The US government’s leading health research body has raised a series of bombshell concerns over the origins of the coronavirus pandemic and the activities of a secretive Chinese laboratory that was investigating bat diseases.

The National Institutes of Health has asked if Covid-19 was linked to the deaths of three miners eight years ago and questioned whether the high-security laboratory in Wuhan possessed samples of the virus prior to the pandemic’s outbreak late last year.

The agency also demanded to know more about the ‘apparent disappearance’ of a scientist at the lab rumoured to be Patient Zero, and questioned if roadblocks were placed around the Wuhan Institute of Virology between October 14 and 19 last year.
He Admires Their Basic Dictatorship

Concentration Camp Tested and Approved.
A collaboration between a Chinese company and a Halifax research team aiming to carry out Canada’s first clinical trials of a potential COVID-19 vaccine has been abandoned amid rising tensions between the two countries.

The partnership between the National Research Council of Canada and CanSino Biologics was announced by the federal government in May.

A team at the Canadian Centre for Vaccinology at Dalhousie University was supposed to work with CanSino to run the first Canadian clinical trials for a possible COVID-19 vaccine. CanSino’s vaccine, called Ad5-nCoV, was already being run through human trials in China and has shown promising results.

What's interesting is that the so-called surge in cases is about 1% of those tested which is, wait for it, what you would have expected had there been no rally whatsoever.

Case totals mean nothing. How many required hospitalization? How many deaths? Are we going to continue to let Gates, Soros and the rest of the WHO thugs disrupt our lives and livelihoods over a common cold?

This is criminal. How come BLM protestors can gather freely ourtdoors with no fear from the dreaded SARS-2, but an event like this is compromised. Truth is air exchange in the great outdoors is so rapid, that disease transmission is very unlikely as proved just recenthly in Sturgis, SD

Memorial Park would normally have filled with bagpipers, a motorcycle rally and grieving families Saturday in honor of fallen firefighters and paramedics who died in the line of duty. Instead, solemn songs and tributes for the annual Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Remembrance echoed through computer screens.

Members of the International Association of Fire Fighters honored members of the union who died on the job, of a work-related illness or by suicide from Illinois, Florida, California, Canada's British Columbia, Colorado Springs and elsewhere through song, prayer and ringing bells. The names of those who died will also be etched on the walls of the Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial in Colorado Springs.

The remote ceremony was intended to keep grieving co-workers and families safe during the coronavirus pandemic, while still paying tribute to their loved-ones, said Harold Schaitberger president of the union.
