Here we are, three months later and the active cases and hospitalizations have decreased dramatically - all thanks to the vaccine(s).
Despite the conspiracy-theorists conspiracy theories, we are permitted to move about the Province and in many cases can go without masks. We haven't been "stripped of our rights". We haven't been injected with tracking devices. And we haven't been imprisoned in our own homes.
This was a GLOBAL pandemic that required harsh measures. Some may have been a bit heavy-handed, but the concern was always about overloading the healthcare system, to the point that it would fail. I have been tracking the numbers since May of 2020 and it was easy to connect the dots when it came to easing of restrictions, and a jump in cases especially the second wave of early February 2021. But since the end of April, there has been a marked decrease in the number of active cases, as well as hospitalizations.
Now, there will be a few upticks here and there as restrictions are further lifted, but I don't foresee a third wave.
Take me onto a short pier...
