To be fair this would be all on the Canucks.
BC Government being open and honest?! That will be the day.
She said she's "not aware", not that she knows for certain there were no variant cases. That part of the phrase is doing a lot of work.
That variant is no joke
Bonnie was uninformed. The team announced it is variants, which explained why it ripped thru the team and 19 of 22 players now have it and 25 overall with coaches and taxi squad.
wow thats a scary thought
Brazil I believe. P.1
They'll have a first lottery for all the teams who played the whole season, and then another one for teams who didn't. Then subsequent lotteries after each round of elimination in the playoffs.
That seems unlikely, also the NHL has said they expect Vancouver to finish the season.
They might as well cancel the season for Vancouver. By the time the players are ready, we will be down to single digit games left.
Well yeah it was meant to be unlikely, was a jab at least year's goofball draft lottery.
going to be interesting how the nhl handles this the further it goes
That’s not confirmed. It could be that variant, but it also could be the UK variant or another variant.
thats the problem right there. apparently, they haven't identified the exact variant in our CDC yet. So Henry is technically correct that she is unaware of P1. But she is most likely able to judge from empirical evidence and priori reasoning that its most likely P1. The spread, reinfection cases, speed and strong symptoms on young persons on the Canucks ice all checks out..... its all semantics, just like when she said masks are not shown to stop spread early in the pandemic, and then later revealed they know it slows spread by a lot but want to save inventory to front line workers.
I wonder what is Roussel's take on this?
As of today, 25 individuals have tested positive and the source infection is confirmed a variant - full genome sequencing by BCCDC will be required to determine which specific type.
if they don't play, they don't get paid
Gee, seems to be no talk whatsoever about the Canucks' situation in America...at least on the two Boston sports talk radio stations. Probably the national sports shows also. And likely not on tv shows like Good Morning America, The Today Show or NBC Nightly News.
To Americans, heck, it's hockey, so it doesn't matter? Heck, it's Canada, so doesn't matter? Way out on the west coast from NYC media, so outta sight, outta mind? What it and where is a Vancouver or a Vancouver Canuck, anywsy? Yes, much more sports yo talk about in America, but still...
Shows how irrelevant Canada and hockey is to Americans, even in a hockey city like Boston.
It it were the anonymous Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Marlins, Kansas City Royals, etc., it'd be covered much more in America, of course.
But it's a sports health crisis in North America and seemingly should garner some attention in America, no?
The little hockey talk we get on Boston sports radio (still much more than probably any or most american NHL cities) never seem to mention it. Likely the media has never heard about it?
Mass apparently has the most cases of the P1 variant in the US apparently.
If true my personal desire if I was from Boston would be that that information was on blast 24/7.
As much as the outbreak in BC is important you can pretty much guarantee if its there its quickly making its way around the globe.
You can be sure that I have posted about it multiple times on the Washington Post articles’ forums. The situation in B.C. and Alberta looks frightening to me but then I don’t really have a good idea just how affected the communities are relative to the overall population and density in those provinces which are quite large.
My sense is that Americans think they are invulnerable once they have been vaccinated. I disagree with that outlook because wherever Covid-19 occurs then it’s still humanity’s problem.
Dr. Henry deals in facts. So, at the time of her presser, it was not confirmed via tests results that it was the variant.
No new positive cases for Vancouver Canucks Wednesday night - TSN.ca
"An ongoing investigation by Vancouver Coastal Health and club contact tracing staff attributes the source infection to a single individual obtained in a community setting, which has since been identified by public health as a public exposure location. Rapid spread of infection throughout the team indicates a link between contacts and the primary case," read the statement.
