A flu season is expected

While seasonal influenza (flu) viruses are detected year-round in the United States, flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter. The exact timing and duration of flu seasons varies, but influenza activity often begins to increase in October. Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, although significant activity can last as late as May.

It appears that the goals of phase 4 maybe not the conditions to

start and success will depend on individual effort as well.

Phase 4 starts tomorrow…

John Horgan says no Sept 7th restart to normal, two weeks ago…

Phase 4 will only be achieved when COVID-19 is no longer a risk, due to an effective treatment, vaccination, or evidence of community immunity. Until British Columbia reaches Phase 4, there will be no rock concerts, conventions, or large gatherings of more than 50 people. Resumption of business, but not business-as-usual


Get vaccinated.

The Variant is out there and Covid-19 will still get you, that will hurt people I have that work in the health care system, we don’t want it to create another dependant class of people to replace the Ingenious that may be coming out of that on September 30th. TIC

Restrictions during phase 4.

The only real restriction planned for phase 4 is business will still be under public health guidance, large events are only targeted for ” increased numbers”

  • Masks in public indoor settings a personal choice
  • Normal social contact
  • If you or anyone in your family feels sick stay home and get tested immediately

Iron lung triage

Polio was a scrooge to the population prior to vaccinations, put on US president in a wheel chair for life. But true horror was the triage for for who might live when recourses were needed to be rationed. The truth of it is that you don’t mess with these things when they can be resolved, because that door may not always be open. I am familiar with one case where a young girl inn the 30’s involuntarily traded. her high school time for a life never getting out of an iron lung capsule.

That was a better outcome for people that go triaged out of that limited resource. Covid.19 is out there and so are you, it will find you in that 20 percent of unvaccinated. and you may triaged out because of your present health and age and the availability of treatment resources.

As provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry was announcing tighter restrictions to cover all of the Interior Health region, she said it won’t be a surprise if the province doesn’t advance to Step 4 in September.

Covid-19 BC

One hundred and twelve new cases.

BC had 112 new cases on Friday with a weekly average of 89. The daily average is approaching one hundred is significant:

The Merritt BC vaccination facility has moved to a smaller complex, that is the Memorial arena to the smaller civic center. With billions of people in the world not yet vaccinated and the border being opened on August 9th to the US, it is closing in on Vaccination availability.

Issue dropping from first of mind in Canada.

Perhaps Covid-19 will be not be top of mind soon and will go from pandemic to endemic status, so safety may not be out front however unvaccinated people can still pick up a debilitating case of the disease.

Forth serious outbreak of a strain coming from Asia.

From Covid -19 to Sar’s there has been four strains of serious virus driven disease coming from the east in recent history. It should be a priority to address this in respect to world travel and safety as variants are dangerous.

Good luck and good day!

If an election is coming then please do not favor any use of public health in this specific case as a credit to the advertising sponsor. We are all in this together.

British Columbia is just under 75 percent immunization of the adult population. That’s 75 percent that has some immunization, be sure to get your second shot to make that 75 percent solid.. The health workers are vaccinating three hundred thousand a week at this point. This puts us within about 5 percent of a strong herd immunity. When complete (à static population with that much immunization would be mostly assured that it will not take off out of control .. Here’s hoping that this continues to a point of total breaking of the virus and its demonstrative end in BC.

Nothing taken for granted…

Variants and the unknown are still a concern. For a hope going forward caution with action is being applied. Vaccination is the key at this point

Invitations coming after eight weeks.

Invitations for the second dose are coming after 8 weeks from the 1st dose and the health people are relying on bookings to insure doses for each day are enough. A letter, email, or text will be delivered to all that got their number one shot..
