Data still available to monitor COVID-19 trends despite lack of PCR testing in Alberta | FULL

  • Publicado el 12 ene 2022
  • Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw is reassuring Albertan's that despite a lack of PCR testing in the province they are still monitoring the data from other sources to show trends in COVID-19 transmissions.
    Speaking during a COVID-19 update on Thursday, Dr. Hinshaw said the acute care admission data and wastewater data can still show community trends.
    The continued rise of the Omicron variant has lead to a high demand for PCR testing that forced the Alberta government to restrict access because the system has been pushed beyond capacity according to Premier Jason Kenney.
    Kenney stated that although at-home rapid test delivery has been delayed he is hoping to get them to Albertans later this month, although he could not give a precise date.

    Dr Hinshaw... why is there 3/4 fully vaccinated in the hospitals?
    Why would anyone want a booster seeing those results?

      @FortyFirst Millennial Don’t Fall for the ‘VAERS Scare’ Tactic. Anti-vaxxers show how a precious vaccine adverse event reporting database can be used to scare the public.
      The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System or VAERS is being misused by anti-vaxxers to terrify the public. It’s a shame because VAERS plays a vital role in detecting important but rare reactions caused by vaccines. The weaponization of VAERS by anti-vaccine activists serves as a reminder that having access to more information does not always lead to better decisions. Information needs to be correctly interpreted to guide us in the right direction.
      VAERS is an American reporting system to keep track of unfavourable or unintended events that take place after vaccination, like a fever or a rash, and that may (or may not) have been caused by the vaccine.
      -Anti-vaxxers routinely publicize reports from VAERS as if they are proof that a vaccine is causing clear harm
      -On its own, VAERS cannot be used to conclude anything, but it can tip off experts that a particular safety signal might be real and deserves to be further studied." McGill University website.

    report from Friday: "all Omicron patients in Edmundston's hospital have been admitted for other reasons"
    These were still counted as "COVID hospitalizations."
    Report from last Dec. 11 :"Another person between the ages of 30 and 39 in the Moncton region who had COVID-19 also died, Public Health said in a release Saturday. The release said the person died of "non COVID-19 related reasons;" however, the death has been included in the total number of COVID-19 deaths in the province, which is 140."

    can we just give the guy on the right a raise instead of increasing funds for unvaccinated people in the ICU? I truly believe increasing funding for the sign language guy will accomplish a whole lot more, especially since Alberta's voice isn't very loud in the Federal Government.

    Its important to try helping all people's, all of us helping each other, everywhere our fellow Canadians.
    Prince Rupert you are all going to enjoy this especially if you believe in our Community!😄
    Our Fedreal goverment, Trudeau speaks of and demands division and is also producing hatred with his words to the people of Canada. I am not a racist nor am I a misogynist or an extremist, and for my goverment to single me out like that as a person of hatred against others, pressures our kids and says get vaccinated, singles them out, speaks to them as if he can overstep the boundaries of parents, yes this happened live! Trudeau is causing division in families as well as the people's of Canada. The mental health of people's of all ages, the suicide rate, addictions, its worse than alarming this isolation for everyone! Listen to EU address the leaders of the world.
    We are a community compromised of this right now. Canada is compromised of this right know!!
    Prince Rupert lets show the world we can change this and still be respectful for the love of our community and each other.
    It is okay to ask questions now.
    Let's show each other and supporting fellow Canadains, for the record once again who we are as a community knit together of courage and of possibility.
    We, together as a community owe it our families and kids and all those we love dearly to MAKE SURE, without a doubt, we have the facts before we make any more descions and take any more of these shots!!
    We can' t plead ignorance anymore, sure in the beginning it was based on a true fear we all had, but it's been 2 years.
    This is our community 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 shots, or what the Goverment calls boosters now and says he has millions in storage? Trudeau said that!! Come on, this is Prince Rupert, it's about being informed together, not fear anymore, and it effects all of us.
    As a community we owe it to each other to make the right choices for what we do next for all of us here. Let's ask questions, let's be informed, millions of people around the world who are people for choice as well, aren't monsters just because they are being denied their basic fundamental rights, and are put in a position to stand up for themselves just to work and feed their families or provide! Neither are those of us here that are asking questions and are for choice to. Who also only ask for the same fundamental rights to provide for our families.
    Listen we all care for each other, at least I hope we do.
    It's what I believe for all of us in our community. I accept your choice as well as mine, being demoralized stripped of my integrity and dignity and intelligence!! I do not feel that way about any of you. I will not support Trudea he has lost his moral compass he speaks AT people not for people!!
    I hear there is a mass vaccine clinic coming again to the Civic Centre and I implore all of you as my community that I care about, no matter what you choose, and what I choose, let us just support each other, let's just be informed.
    We all love our community, and community sticks together.
    Hatred does not mix with togetherness! Respect and support for each other does.
    All I ask is just research this before you put anymore of this in your kids or families bodies and to ask yourself when will it stop. Even those of us in this community who have a vax pass are being denied rights too, when it was only suppose to be 2 shots not 3 or 4 or 5 or number 10 in storage cause it's happening! All other vaccines in the world did not require all these shots constantly!
    I care for you all as much as I care for my family❤
    Here is a website filled with professionals from around the world they are not hiding information, they are being transparent, giving you the upto date information to help us all be informed. IS THE goverment? Don't be afraid to investigate, to ask, to inquire.
    The EU is calling on all world leaders to stop, to look at what the stats are truly showing, they are admitting it and sharing it with the world.
    There is a Federation of Physicians and Scientist all over the world....its made up of 16,000 of them for ALL humanity, that includes all of us too!
    It is just transparency and openness❤

    Pamela Rouse

    Caring about all of us!! All our fellow Canadians Everywhere❤

      "The vaccine is one of the greatest achievements of mankind,” Trump said. “I came up with a vaccine - with three vaccines - all are very, very good … in less than nine months. It was supposed to take five to 12 years.”
      “And if you take the vaccine, you’re protected," Trump went on. "The results of the vaccine are very good. And if you do get it, it’s a very minor form. People aren’t dying when they take their vaccine."“The vaccine worked, but some people aren’t taking it,” he said. “The ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones who don’t take their vaccine.”

    Well, certainly the un-vax tax shouldn't be pursued as it's just mean spirited, but Kenney is exaggerating as is typical of conservatives, no one is discussing denial of services just a tax surcharge, even Singapore's not covering the COVID medical expenses of the unvaccinated is just the pre Obamacare situation in the US where the costs the patient's can't afford just results in raised costs to everyone else. Besides, if he's really so concerned about service denial then why is he now asking that drug addicts present their healthcare numbers to use the injection sites... Typical right wing hypocrisy.

      @Tribulation is upon us Yes, but it is the criticisms coming from the right such as Kenney that are unwarranted fear mongering of service denial. The unvax tax is disturbing but they don't need to exaggerate the criticisms and with the recent change in Alberta of requiring drug addicts produce a healthcare number or be registered onsite for one before accessing an injection site, the accusations of service denial by Kenney is hypocritical. Come on, it's easy enough to oppose the unvax tax without unbased partisan ideology.

      @The Media Lies In Texas there was a saying that a Yankee was anyone north of me. Kenney is the leader of the United Conservative Party so he is a conservative, the fact that you said he's a phony conservative only shows you to be a nut case who only considers your own opinion as definitive. There is no doubt that Kenney tried to appeal to as many Conservatives as he can but of course reality often counters the conservative views and Kenney does eventually concedes to some realities which he finds simply can not be moved or rationalized by conservative views. You've only shown that you're even more detached from reality by your ideologies than Kenney is.
