Global National: May 1, 2021 | How Ontario is coping with ICUs filling with younger COVID patients

by News Update

On this episode of Global National: Ontario is coping with an rising number of COVID-19 patients in the province’s intensive care units, with more than 900 people requiring critical care. As Mike Le Couteur reports, more young people are needing critical care than ever before.

Plus, in an effort to save the pandemic-hit tourism industry, Europe wants to implement vaccine passports that would provide proof of COVID-19 immunity. The Canadian government may have to consider its own program. David Akin explains why officials in Ottawa have been hesitant about it.

And India’s daily COVID-19 cases have topped 400,000, the first country in the world to reach such a dire number of infections reported in a single day. As Jennifer Johnson reports, the U.S. has joined Canada and other countries in temporarily restricting travel from India, where hospitals and crematoriums are buckling under pressure. Warning: Some viewers may find images in this story disturbing.

All this, and more.

It's been over a year. I still don't know one person that's been very sick from this alleged pandemic. Not one.
I live and work in a metro area so it's not like I live out in the sticks away from people. The gov and media are making this out to be way worse than it is.
Definitely an agenda is at hand.

There are better ways to commit suicide than running 30 marathons in 30 days.

Very fishy
..this is surely a promo for the jab with unknown long term effects. We dont know if the body ever stops producing spike proteins!

Let me guess….these "young" patients are obese and have a terrible diet…..jesus, do better, get healthier

Beth Gerow May 2, 2021 - 9:48 AM

covid virus attaches to ACE 2 receptors. About 1/2 of ppl's lung cells have those receptors , as does fat. Diabetes, high Blood Pressure, and testosterone (sorry guys) make more ACE 2 receptors form…that's why about 2/3's of the ppl who have died are male. Skin and skin colour have NO ACE 2 receptors….they're irrelevant. Poverty leads to crowding, and poor diet…that's why some People of Colour are suffering so. In India, they estimate that one THIRD of the population is pre-diabetic….that's why they're having so much more trouble than East Asian countries . And sorry, that's why she's having more trouble than her husband.

Prayers for India🙏🏽

ps in other countries they've found that CPAP machines….you know, for ppl whose throat blocks up when they're sleeping….is better than ventilators. Some Drs who treat covid patients have theorized that ventilators are just too hard on fragile, damaged lungs, and cause further damage. Just saying…

Beth Gerow May 2, 2021 - 10:00 AM

MIT ENGINEERS have figured out that 6 feet, 60 feet….there's NO social distancing indoors….the virus is everywhere and is just too hard to kill, and lasts too long on surfaces. Veterinarians have known that from day one…it's only the med ppl who deal with humans that can't get a grip on how covid virus spreads. Sounds weird, but that's true.

Beth Gerow May 2, 2021 - 10:04 AM

only reason i got vaccinated…it's pretty obvious that vaccine passports are coming. The Indian variant is in Canada already…that means that it will be everywhere soon. The only thing that might save us is the UK variant….if it prevails, the Indian variant will be contained. ps someone who's better at math than i am calculated that although the numbers in India sound horrendous, it's about the same rate per million as all the Western countries.

The vaccine passport is the beginning of total government control.

Jason L May 2, 2021 - 10:14 AM

Plenty of brand new ventilators just left at a garbage dump in Florida look it up 20 grand a piece never used!!!

TM26 May 2, 2021 - 10:15 AM

How do they not know if the vaccines prevent spread? How do they not know how often you need to 'renew' your covid passport? Is it because these vaccines are experimental?

You can't fix stupid. Do you really think you can stop Covid without helping the third world? The variants will continue to evolve until the whole planet is vaccinated. If you want the pandemic to end , you have to vaccinate on a planet scale regardless of the perceived cost. The real cost is the evolution of the virus into a virus that our vaccines do not protect us from.

Dan Boden May 2, 2021 - 11:14 AM

Thought the experts said more VAXes the better how come more people are dying if they work so well?Fraud?

Solexx X May 2, 2021 - 11:14 AM

So the CIA in desperation is trying to create a reason for an endless war with Afghanistan. Stop the warmongering. We see you!

Anyone else notice how they stopped talking about the number of deaths? That's because it's less scary.
