James Teitsma for Radisson is sharing a COVID-19 Update.
During today's news conference, Dr. Jazz Atwal shared modeling information related to Covid-19 and ICU capacity and what led Public Health to recommend the current levels of restrictions. Here's a direct link to that part of the news conference:
https://youtu.be/gPaWKV4_syM?t=496

The average age of patients in ICU is younger now than earlier in the pandemic. This has been associated with a DECREASE in mortality (younger folk are generally healthier than older ones) but an INCREASE in length of stay (said plainly: recovering from a hard case of infection takes longer than dying from it 🙁 ). The result is an increased load on our ICUs. Our current "actual" ICU load is showing results even higher than the "Extreme" case in the modelling.

Later in the same news conference, Dr. Joss Reimer addressed questions and concerns people have about vaccines, specifically talking about testing processes, side effects, long term effects and immune system response, especially with a view to concerns youth might have. Here's a direct link to that part of the news conference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPaWKV4_syM&t=1297s

You can find out more at www.protectmb.ca. Today eligibility criteria was expanded to allow youths aged 12-17 to be eligible for the vaccine in addition to all adults 18+. It's being reported that today over 40,000 appointment bookings were made.
