  • More Cases... More Deaths... Vaccine delivery too slow and not coordinated... while the president does nothing but whine about twitter and the loss of his golf tournament... in other words, just more of the same.

    • CoViD-19 now has made the jump from humans to other apes.

      2 Gorillas in a zoo in San Diego have tested positive for CoViD-19.

      Seems like people now also need to take precautions so that other apes (at least those with strong genetic similarity ot humans ... gorillas, bonobos, chimpanzees) get protected from contracting CoViD-19

        after during the Capitol attack, she was locked into the safe room together with republicans who refused to wear masks and mocked staffers who offered them masks to wear.

          Husband on leash breached Quebec's Covid curfew


          A couple in Canada have been fined for breaking Covid curfew rules after the woman was caught "walking" her husband on a leash, according to local media.

          The woman reportedly told police that she was just out "walking her dog" near their home in the city of Sherbrooke, in Quebec province.

          On Saturday the province imposed a nightly curfew between 20:00 and 05:00.

          Walking a dog close to home is one of the only acceptable reasons to be outside between those times.

          The pair were spotted by police at around 9pm on Saturday night, just a short while after the new rules came into effect.

          They reportedly told police that they were following the rule for pets. Isabelle Gendron, of the Sherbrooke Police Department, told the local newspaper La Tribune the couple "did not co-operate with the police at all".

          They were each fined CA$1,546 ($1,212; £893).

          Police across Quebec issued 750 tickets for violations during the first weekend of the curfew.

          Canada has seen a recent surge in Covid-19 infections, nearing 670,000 total cases since the pandemic began.

          On Monday Quebec's premier François Legault called on residents to respect social distancing rules, saying "I know it's difficult, but Quebeckers are able to work as a team when necessary."

          He warned that the situation in the province's largest city Montreal was "really critical" and said hospitals were nearing the point where they would not be able to treat all patients.

            • Well, what else could she do?
              Let her husband pee/defecate in the apartment?

                Covid: 2020 saw most excess deaths since World War Two


                The Covid pandemic has caused excess deaths to rise to their highest level in the UK since World War Two.

                There were close to 697,000 deaths in 2020 - nearly 85,000 more than would be expected based on the average in the previous five years.

                This represents an increase of 14% - making it the largest rise in excess deaths for more than 75 years.

                When the age and size of the population is taken into account, 2020 saw the worst death rates since the 2000s.

                This measure - known as age-standardised mortality - takes into account population growth and age.

                The data is only available until November - so the impact of deaths in December have not yet been taken into account - but it shows the death rate at that stage was at its highest in England since 2008.
