A video of Justin Trudeau appeared today speaking about vaccines. He clearly stated, “vaccines aren’t enough to keep us safe”. This is a very concerning dialogue from the Prime Minister of Canada. The video can be seen below.
This raises the question, why get vaccinated then? The facts Justin is referring to remain to be seen -but the facts I have say the virus is now more contagious but less deadly.
The Lancet published a study confirming that, regarding the UK variant which is the most prominent in Canada, this should come as no surprise given that’s the natural progression of a virus as it mutates. The study can be seen here.
In that study, they say “emerging evidence exists of increased transmissibility of B.1.1.7, and we found increased virus load by proxy for B.1.1.7 in our data. We did not identify an association of the variant with severe disease in this hospitalised cohort.”
The 7 day moving average of deaths has remained consistent despite case counts increasing. This is positive news, instead of celebrating, it seems Trudeau is ready to keep restrictions in place for the foreseeable future. Gloom and doom on repeat from our leadership.
