Global National: Oct. 9, 2020 | COVID-19 cases surging in parts of Canada, restrictions return

As we enter the first Thanksgiving long weekend with COVID-19, the message to everyone is stay home and keep your circle small because the forecast is for the virus to accelerate. In Ontario, tough new restrictions are mandatory as of midnight Friday in three hot spot regions, Toronto, Peel, and Ottawa. That means no indoor dining at restaurants and bars. Gyms, casinos, and movie theatres will be closed. As of Tuesday, all wedding receptions will be cancelled. All of that will remain in effect for 28 days. Mike Le Couteur takes a look at where the virus is spreading and what’s being done to slow it down.

There is a new federal rent relief program for small businesses in this country. A replacement for one that got lots of complaints The biggest change includes business owners can now apply directly and don’t have to go through landlords. David Akin breaks down how it works and who is eligible.

In the U.S., COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer. Case numbers are climbing again with nearly 55,000 new infections were reported just today. And as Jackson Proskow reports, they’re rising so fast some hospitals are running out of hospital beds.

More than 350,000 COVID-19 cases were reported across the world just today which is a new daily record. In England new cases are now doubling every week, French hospitals are beginning to run out of ICU beds, and Spain has declared a state of emergency in Madrid. And as Crystal Goomansingh reports, the fall is going to be full of new restrictions.

Three years into the #MeToo movement there is much that still has to change. New figures from Statistics Canada show that 11 per cent of female post secondary students say they’ve been sexually assaulted on campus. At Canadian military colleges, 28 per cent of female cadets say they’ve experienced a sexual assault. The perpetrators were often fellow students. As Heather Yourex-West reports, advocates say culture was a part of the problem at Canadian colleges and universities.

Feeding the world’s hungry is what the World Food Program has been doing for more than 50 years. It rarely makes headlines, but its work is so vital that it’s now being recognized with a Nobel Peace Prize. Eric Sorensen explains why.

    Come on really?? This is the biggest sham in modern history, propaganda, lies, cooking the books on numbers,fear mongering. It's pathetic! Mainstream media just keeps spinning for the narrative. Are there really people out there that still believe this crap?

    Sorry, I know it's not politically correct to say this. But men and women can't be best friends. Sooner or later something is gonna give. This is not to minimize sexual assault but it's a nature driven fact. Minimize sexes being alone with each, specially when she is emotionally vulnerable.

    I feel bad for the Government who had been doing so much and this pandemic is not going down.

    Because many still keep breaking rules.

    If only everyone listens & do their due diligence this pandemic will not spread like this.

    We have to act together with one mind.

    The decision is not just within the government.

    This is everyone's responsibility.

    Take action. Stop blaming & asking the government to do it alone.

    This is the time to show teamwork or this earth will end by this virus alone.

    Only thing 'surging' is the inaccurate tests. Stop getting tested unless you start having symptoms….

    The WHO now estimates that 750,000,000 people have gotten the virus. Which, at 1 million deaths, would put the IFR at 0.13%.

    A few months ago, we did not know the contagion rate, the mortality rate, the immunity factor, the herd immunity percentage, whether the virus was man-made, whether it was transmitted through the air or surfaces, the effects of various treatments (HCQ, Vitamin D, Dexamethasone, Doxycycline, etc.) and, to be honest, we still don't.

    There's a lot of questionable science in terms of allowing for protests with 50,000 people, but you can't have weddings or funerals or go to restaurants.

    This is the numbers from WorldOmeter Coronavirus Cases: Out of 37 million people infected we have Active Cases – 99% in mild condition, 1% serious or critical AND Closed Cases – 96% recovered/discharged 4% Deaths. Now, you tell me if the government's actions are justified!?

  20. Avatar

    The CDC statistics are much different than your fictitious reporting. The deaths are much lower & the comorbidities are the cause of death & NOT the Common Cold-19. Your reporting is bogus.

    Less people under 50 are dying then are dying of undetected cancer because of fear to go to the hospital. Stop this insanity already! Open up or you will be the defendants in class A lawsuits for crimes against humanity!

    Everyday we are at a tipping point, interesting. If this government weren't such pansies they would go the martial law route like china and Thailand and have their cases go down to single digits

    No Aorta surgeries being performed in a number of hospitals in order to lower bed space for “potential rise in Covid cases”. This has been ongoing since March.
    This means a DEATH SENTENCE to hundreds of people, WAKE UP ALREADY!

    Hey Donna… Canadian hospitals are empty. Deaths are down. Stop your Covid propaganda machine. Cases are not as important as deaths. There should be no lockdowns!!! This is ridiculous and most Canadians realize it.
