        • I heard he was about to discover that only 5% of the hospital beds set aside for covid in Canada are being used, so CSIS in a joint operation with CTV News and CBC News sent a hitman to shut him up.

          • Evidently three doctors died in Russia recently (2 "fell" out of windows) because they criticized Mother Russia's preparedness for this virus ....

              lol. the murderer got to his car and then killed himself. maybe communist plot, but the guy was on a team, and not the leader of it. doesn't stop the research, or whatever they are working on. crazier things have happened though, and communists aren't smart people, just decietful.

              i think this will be some cuckold type situation, one in the gut, one in the neck, and one in the head? but the names will get clicks.

                When you're 37 you're more likely to die studying coronavirus than getting Coronavirus

                  I’ll start: the researcher discovered conclusive evidence that the virus was engineered in Wuhan as a bio weapon.

                      Coronavirus survivors banned from joining the military

                      However, given the limited research on COVID-19, there are likely a few factors that military medical professionals are trying to hash out when it comes to recruiting survivors: Whether respiratory damage from the virus is long-lasting or permanent, and whether that can be assessed; the likelihood of recurring flare-ups, even if someone has had two consecutive negative tests; and the possibility that one bout of COVID-19 might not provide full immunity for the future, and could potentially leave someone at a higher risk to contract it again, perhaps with worse complications.

                            Good point on the LTC homes. I know this sounds cold, but the fact that a large number of individuals are passing away near the end of their life expectancy is nothing new. The virus didn't create any of the LTC homes realities, it just put a spotlight on it.

                            I'll say this neither criticizing or endorsing it, just stating a fact: We live in a western society where culturally we outsource the care of our elderly, rather than live in multigenerational households and do it ourselves. Should the standard of care be better in certain LTC places? Absolutely. But that would also increase the cost of said care, either directly or through tax if it was public, and we, as a society and individually, would have to be okay with it, if that's what we wanted.

                            It's not a quick-fix thing, and although part of it, it's not as simple as "blame it on the government". Most of us will be 80+ one day. We have to start recognizing that compared to past generations we now enter the workforce later, often retire later, and live longer. Gotta adjust our money/careers to that. Public standards can and should improve, but again, also cold but truth: the more financially stable we are when we're 80+, the better our shot is at getting into a better LTC home.

                            The Coronavirus has nothing to do with any of that. However, its numbers get significantly inflated by nursing home deaths (which are folks that regrettably were close to passing away anyway). Those inflated numbers are then reported every day, out context, lumped in with all other cases. Scared of these inflated numbers, we shut our whole society down. Then we spend 530+ billion in 4 months to pay for said shut down, rather than invest 530B in our health care system, which would significantly improve the healthcare of all Canadians for years to come (including the elderly).
                            There comes a point where we need to cut our losses and start over. Continuing to pump billions of dollars into the system to pay for said shut down cannot happen for the long term. There are many scientists who are saying it's possible we may never have a 100% effective vaccine against Covid-19 and even if we do develop a vaccine for it, it would likely be similar to the influenza vaccine in terms of effectiveness. But since Covid-19 is more contagious than influenza, the transmittable rate is still going to be high, even if we vaccinate all 7 billion people in the world.

                            It looks like this virus is here to stay unless we have a breakthrough in medical research. But how long can we wait for that breakthrough in medical research and have (almost) everyone continue to stay home? I do believe that effective drugs will be (are) created to combat covid-19, but those drugs are likely first for those who have been hospitalized & in the ICU. But for everyone else? That may take even longer, won't it?

                            Can we really continue to live in fear every single day from a virus that, while is serious, there are many reports out there saying it isn't as serious as we were first led to believe for the vast majority of the worlds population. I finally personally knew a person who caught covid-19. She is in her late 40's and isn't very healthy (overweight and has some lung problems), yet she had some symptoms which weren't severe and she fully recovered. I know this is n=1.

                            Also, some who claim that people just want the economy to re-open so that they can just get their nails & hair done aren't thinking about everyone's business that's shut down. There are multiple other businesses that aren't nail & hair salons that are really hurting right now. And it isn't feasible for everyone to go and get jobs in essential services while their businesses are shut down or operating at a significantly reduced capacity.
