Coroner says 2020 could become B.C.'s worst year for overdose deaths, as Surrey RCMP send new warning


"She cited the isolating effects of the pandemic as another factor, along with reduced access to safe consumption sites, naloxone, and drug testing.

“So all of those harm reduction measures that were really supporting people to stay alive were impacted,” she said.

Lapointe noted the higher toxicity of illicit street drugs is also believed to be linked to the pandemic.

“Where it’s coming from very likely has changed as a result of disrupted supply chains,” Lapointe said. “It’s possible that 2020 could be the worst year B.C. has ever experienced in terms of loss of life due to toxic drug supply.”

As of September, just over 1,200 people in B.C. had died of illicit drug overdoses this year, according to statistics from the coroner. Fentanyl was detected in about 80 per cent of those deaths.

“Each one of those numbers is a person with a family, with friends, and really from all walks of life in this province,” Lapointe said, and made a plea for more safe access to drugs for those who are addicted. “They need these substances, and they will die if they are continuing to have to buy them on the illicit market.”

Can we just go back to one person per family in grocery stores? That seems like such an easy solution for so many reasons and yet we have full families clogging up aisles like we’re back to normal. And I get it, this isn’t always a possibility for everyone, but when I see both parents and kids in the store at the same time it boggles my mind.

Was that ever a thing? There used to be signs but no one listened.

1,584 cases. Maybe today would be a good day to announce some restrictions?

Four more in the ICU, now up to 60. That's the number I tend to watch because of the capacity issues. We are at 90% occupied in Calgary and 92% in Edmonton yesterday, those numbers are (not so) slowly creeping up.

We don't really have "huge spreader" circumstances or businesses - we have "huge spreader" individuals. We need to keep those potential superspreader events/people at home. Closing businesses keeps those people at home.

Saw this too - a study done in Michigan and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine journal on the long-term effects of COVID patients who have been discharged from hospital:

https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2020/.../11/2020+23:00

- A new study on COVID-19 patients in Michigan has followed up on COVID-19 patients after they've left hospital.

- Within two months of being discharged, 7% of patients had died, rising to 10% for those who were in intensive care.

- 15% ended up back in hospital.

- Over 39% still hadn’t gotten back to normal activities two months after leaving hospital.

Surviving a case of COVID-19 that’s bad enough to land you in the hospital is hard enough. But the problems don’t necessarily end when COVID-19 patients leave the hospital, a new study shows.

Within two months of leaving the hospital, nearly 7% of the patients in the study had died, including more than 10% of the patients treated in an intensive care unit. Fifteen percent had ended up back in the hospital.

The data come from more than 1,250 patients treated in 38 hospitals across Michigan this spring and summer, when the state was one of the earliest to experience a peak in cases.

Yeah, this thing isn't ending any time soon. Personal responsibility is not going to get us through this.

Bunch of dumb, middle aged white people. Like a 90's video game where they keep recycling the same 4 people for crowds.

1500+ cases? Still not as bad as Manitoba on per capita basis.

FYI. Lockdown coming late next week. Announced early this week. Everyone prep.

Schools likely remain open. Most other stuff shut down.

The only prepping I could do is move up my massage appointment, which I really need. But there are no openings. :-(

Manitoba only had 240 new cases today, 175 per million. Ours is 362 per million for today.
