That doesn't mean people shouldn't take precautions, but it's not too surprising that some people aren't given the infection rates in those places.
That’s outstanding. What’s the reason for that success?

The officials in Vancouver are generally quite intense about enforcing restrictions on bars/restaurants, even when Covid wasn't around.

Yay Florida is closing some beaches again for the 4th. Not soon enough though. And what, does the virus expire after the 4th? Lmao.

You brought it on yourselves, people. On yesterday’s drive down A1A it was the same crap. People packed close together on the beach, by the picnic tables, waiting to cross the street, etc.

No masks and no distancing. The uptick continues.

I’d say they’re getting what they deserve, but it’s not only cruel, it’s unrealistic. We are all paying for their stupidity.

Vancouver is a little bifurcated with mask use, but becoming more and more lax as everyone has just mostly decided that the pandemic didn't happen here and it won't happen again. Collectively, most people feel safe with the border closed. People are kind of paying lip service to social distance and mask use has almost entirely declined.

I am glad we took the opportunity here to open things up again in Phase 2, and I am happy that we have commenced into Phase 3. We got off lucky here and I am glad that officials made the decision to lift lockdown when cases flatlined around 8-18 cases per day.

I am worried that we will see a resurgence of the virus. Very worried.

BC positive rate to date is 1.5% while Alberta is 1.8%. The truth is that for whatever reasons Alberta ended up with more and larger outbreaks than BC.

And yet BC has more deaths. So that says to me that they likely had more cases than Alberta and just didn't find them due to the low testing rate.

Then you would have seen a higher positive rate due to targeted testing. BC had early problems in old folks homes.

If you took away the meat packing plant cases Alberta would look a lot more similar to BC. We just had two significant unchecked outbreaks.

“Whatever reasons” include some 1500 cases linked to two slaughter houses.

It's not like they're not testing in these areas though. Vancouver Island has done something like 10,000 tests in the last 7.5 weeks and had only 1 positive PCR result (there have been 1-2 epidemiologically linked ones reported in that timespan too, but they had contracted it earlier and already recovered). When you have a 0.01% positive rate in that timespan, I don't really see the argument that they're missing cases due to lack of testing.

Luck, mostly. Both areas were fortunate to have very few cases once North America and Europe started shutting things down, so it never really had a chance to spread. This allowed them to get to a critically low number of cases pretty quickly and continued measures (that they're following pretty much everywhere in Canada) have kept it at bay, so when the odd case does pop up it doesn't seem to really spread from there.

In both cases there is probably allot of selection bias in the sample population, so this probably says allot about the prevalence of COVID vs all other viral infections in the population.

I briefly saw an interview last night on CNN or MSNBC with some sort of public health official down in Houston who was speaking about the upcoming hospital bed shortage as the case load is increasing down there. One thing that I found really interesting was that hospitals down in Houston are now testing everyone for Covid whether they come due to related symptoms or if they come in for any other reason. As a result of all this testing recently at hospitals apparently positive results are around 70%. Of course what wasn't mentioned was the breakdown of how many people were specifically coming in due to Covid systems.

The overall Texas testing positivity rate is ~14% presently. Not a good place to be.

BC had a bunch of deaths when Covid-19 hit care homes early on. Not many after that. They had only 7 deaths below the age of 60.

It's possible that BC had a lot of cases early on. But recently they've had almost none. Lack of testing wouldn't explain lack of recent deaths or ICU cases.
