Fourth Wave is Not Peaked!
COVID DATA UPDATE 8/31/21
It is the 4th wave. Canadian cases ↑ 28.1% week over the week ending 8/31/21, ↑ slightly from 26.6% increase last week. US case increases again from 9.3% to 11.4%, as results of school openings coming into play. The US has renewed vaccination efforts. If Canada, cases increases follow the US and UK up the bell curve, cases will peak in 4 to 6 weeks at around 35K/w or 5000 cases per day in the country. But…
Schools are reopening in Canada next month. They opened in most places in the US this week. In Canada, 71.5% have received the first dose, 51.9% are fully vaccinated.
Of the 26.47% not vaccinated in Canada at all, 45.5% of those are children under the age of 12. These are the people we are putting together in enclosed spaces next month. Schools could present a source of a major outbreak.
I thought this was done! I know we want it to be over, but it is not over.
