More medical and sanitation supplies like hand sanitizers are on their way with special approval from Health Canada

What was The previous bottleneck?

Lack of Bilingualism on the product’s labeling and packaging...

https://nationalpost.com/health/heal...ts-swabs-masks

Quote:
OTTAWA — Health Canada is waiving some of its usual regulatory requirements to increase supplies of hand sanitizers, disinfectants, swabs and personal protective equipment such as masks and gowns used to help contain the spread of COVID-19.

Due to “unprecedented demand” for such products, Health Canada says it will temporarily allow them to be sold in this country even if they don’t meet the normal regulatory requirements.

The temporary waiver will apply to products that are already authorized for sale in Canada but aren’t fully compliant with Health Canada regulations on things such as bilingual labelling or the type of packaging to be used.

Not sure how many this applies to here, maybe friends and family, but part of the relief sees the RRIF minimums drop by 25% this year.

Not part of the relief, but a potential strategy to consider is taking the mandatory amount sooner and putting it into a TFSA (assuming you have room!). If there's a second half recovery, it's sheltered and if there isn't you sold your allotment for the year higher than you otherwise would. Of course, YMMV and do your own due diligence.

Here's a link about the federal measure: http://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/feds-lowe...ures-1.1408320

Regular passes too?

This is really interesting, loss of sense of smell and taste may indicate infection even when there are no symptoms:

No other symptoms. Loss of taste or smell would itself be a symptom.

Trump wants the US "open" by Easter: US President Donald Trump today said he wants the coronavirus-related lockdowns lifted by mid-April, because he is concerned that the economic costs of these measures is too high. Trump's earlier caution that "the cure can't be worse than the problem itself" is a central principle of public health responses to pandemics, but most serious epidemiologists and public health experts say that easing the lockdown measures makes sense only once hospitals are fully prepared and there is sufficient testing to detect new outbreaks – neither of which is yet true in the US. The idea sets up a macabre calculation of how many lives are worth saving vs the economic impact of doing so, but it could also put governors on the spot: the lockdown measures have been imposed by states, not the federal government. Local authorities may be reluctant to relax the rules for fear of generating a fresh spike in cases. But if Trump is serious, he could also threaten to withhold federal aid from states that defy new, looser guidelines. Something nasty is coming, one way or another.

Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, his office said Wednesday.

The 71-year-old is showing mild symptoms of COVID-19 and is self-isolating at a royal estate in Scotland

UT Health system is very reputable and world renowned. Although this story is specific to Houston, they modeled growth of the virus across 150 countries, as well as the state and metro region level.

I really wish I could see updates of these models as new data emerges every day.

While the source (Medium) isn't always the greatest, this is a really interesting look at the problems with some of the armchair modeling we've seen related to Covid, and how difficult any sort of epidemic modeling is. I thought it was a great read. Less stat types people may not agree


Quote:
A particularly afflicted demographics has been my own, that of Physicists, resulting in the rise of a small cottage industry of blog posts, LinkedIn publications and even arXiv papers with their best attempts at modeling the spread of the disease, with little or no understanding of dynamics underlying epidemic spreading. Once again, the immortal words of Simon DeDeo have been proven true:

The 10 scariest words in the social sciences: "I'm from the physics department and I'm here to help."

Questions About Accuracy of Coronavirus Tests Sow Worry

Quote:
Experts believe nearly one in three infected patients are nevertheless getting negative test results
Quote:
Last week, a 16-month-old boy in Florida tested positive for the new coronavirus, a lab report shows. A few days later, he tested negative at a second lab.

The chief medical officer at the practice where the tests were ordered is betting that the positive result is the right one.

Article is behind a paywall. I thought WSJ was publishing all COVID stories for free?
