    Today's press release

    Today, Sept. 27, Nova Scotia is reporting one death related to COVID-19. A man in his 80s in Central Zone has died.

    Nova Scotia is also reporting 83 new cases of COVID-19 and 46 recoveries since the last update on Sept. 24.

    Over the past three days, there have been 65 cases in Central Zone, eight cases in Western Zone, six cases in Northern Zone and four cases in Eastern Zone.

    Due to an increased number of investigations, the exposure category (i.e., travel, close contact or under investigation) is not always available by release time. A breakdown by zone identifying exposure categories will no longer be provided regularly.

    There is community spread in Central Zone, primarily among people aged 20 to 40 who are unvaccinated and participating in social activities.

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 205 active cases of COVID-19. Of those, 11 people are in hospital, including one in ICU.

    Nova Scotia Health Authority’s labs completed 3,726 tests on Sept. 24; 3,246 tests on Sept. 25; and 2,659 tests on Sept. 26.

    As of Sept. 26, 1,500,471 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 721,906 Nova Scotians have received their second dose.

    Not to be that guy again but what are people’s thoughts on the 42 cases in schools (that we know of) since last Monday the 20th? I find it crazy that they have not been releasing this info publicly, supposedly that is changing tomorrow. I don't know that the Covid doesn’t spread in schools message is holding true with the Delta variant

    They should definitely be sharing school data. It's pretty important to parents, especially with unvaccinated children.

    I’m stuck understanding how the school is privy to the names of anyone arrested at the party. Wouldn’t that be protected by privacy regulations?

    NB is getting hammered too. It's almost like wearing masks during a pandemic is effective or something.

    I'm talking if they connect folks from their dumb facebook/instagram/twitter shares that were all over 2 days ago

    But no I'm pretty sure arrests are public record

    Couldn't care less about wearing masks if it keeps this thing under control. Minor inconvenience at best.

    Today's press release

    Today, September 28, Nova Scotia is reporting one death related to COVID-19. A man in his 70s in Northern Zone has died.

    Nova Scotia is also reporting 32 new cases of COVID-19 and 28 recoveries.

    There are 27 cases in Central Zone, three cases in Northern Zone and two cases in Eastern Zone.

    There is community spread in Central Zone, primarily among people aged 20 to 40 who are unvaccinated and participating in social activities.

    On September 27, seven schools were notified of an exposure(s) at their school. It is important to note that an exposure associated with a school does not mean there is spread within the school or that the initial case was first exposed to the virus in the school. As always, all staff, parents and guardians are notified of exposures if a positive case (student, teacher or staff) was at the school while infectious. A list of schools with exposures is available online: https://backtoschool.ednet.ns.ca/school-exposures

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 205 active cases of COVID-19. Of those, 13 people are in hospital, including one in ICU.

    On September 27, Nova Scotia Health Authority’s labs completed 4,947 tests.

    As of September 27, 1,503,065 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 723,167 Nova Scotians have received their second dose.

    Since yesterday's update, 28 cases have been listed as resolved, 1 person has died and 2,594 vaccine doses have been administered.

    32/4947 = 0.647% positive rate.

    What’s really scary is the risk other activities now carry. Imagine being in a car accident or motorcycle accident and needing a ventilator. Now the full hospitals are creating a risk to non Covid issue as well.

    (not directed at you, Boots. All of this was preventable. and now Kenney is going forward with his own opinion on next steps instead of listening to the health experts).

    They started a review of his leadership last week. Lots of calling for him to step down. He got them to delay the leadership review until the spring. Likely wants to try one last kick at the can at being the "guy that led us through covid".

    That second article tries to downplay the Trump effect - I disagree with the author. IMO, if Trump didn't fuck up early on his attitude towards COVID, the US would be leading the world in pandemic exit. Relevant quote from the aritcle:

    "What distinguishes the United States is a conservative party — the Republican Party — that has grown hostile to science and empirical evidence in recent decades. A conservative media complex, including Fox News, Sinclair Broadcast Group and various online outlets, echoes and amplifies this hostility. Trump took the conspiratorial thinking to a new level, but he did not create it."

    All Trump had to do was properly deal with Covid and he'd still be President. Covid was a gift for him. How many presidents are handed a war with an enemy that everyone on earth wants dead? If he had of treated it as such, it'd have bought him a lot of favour with a lot of people who don't like him.

    Gotta say, I'm liking our conservative premier. Starting off the covid update saying no matter how many BS youtube videos people send him, he trusts in the science :bowdown:

    Mandatory vaccinations for all healthcare workers/teachers. If they refuse vaccination they have to attend vaccine education classes :rofl:

    He’s obviously a sheep in wolf’s clothing. A conservative government was supposed to be the end of business closures. Lol
