    Pandemics are NOT made by cases !!! We don't have a pandemic every cold season – even though there are millions who get the same cold. On top of that, how many are false positives – oh and lets not forget that they haven't even isolated covid 19 so what exactly are they testing positive for???

    more ''asymptomatic'' cases because of more tests. a test at 40-45 cycles detecting dead traces of a virus from months ago. No symptoms, you can't give what you don't have. Wake up! this is a sham. all they want is control and impose a vaccine. big pharmas, world banks, globalists influencing governments around the world $$$$. we are paying the price so elites can make money. This is INSANITY"

    How many deaths? You’d think people being sick and getting over an illness would be normal in the 21st century and not sensationalized.

    5 million people have entered canada without quarantining. They were allowed in.

    A lot of cases came from outside of canada.

    The government fails to tell the public the who why where or when of each transmission. They must have an agreement with the virus to protect it.

    Canadian border is weaker now because the government is allowing relatives in, before it was not allowed.

    The idiocracy even abundant here in Canada keeps manifesting itself with idiotic comments out here, disregard for the facts and guidelines set forth by the experts, and half baked and half brained conspiracy theories.

    CBC is the enemy of the people.

    Open up businesses, as its obvious that its spreading at home, not in commercial establishments. They wont be here next winter otherwise.

    How do they get the actual test results to prove people have the virus so fast? 44,000 tests and they got instant results? Yeah right.

    Nov4, game over, Trump wins and COVID no more required.

    Ok, stop testing, then you'll have no cases. People who actually need medical help can go get it, and people in good health who get it can do what they usually do when they catch a cold or flu virus – rest, drink fluids, and carry on with their lives.

    the one thing more frightening than corona virus is the fact that the covidiots in this comment section have a vote.

    if you are frightened of becoming ill and incapacitated, one way of self soothing is to pretend nothing is wrong, just play the odds however bad and dont think about what could happen. surrounding yourself with others who are similarly confused and frightened by the real world and you can convince yourself that yourself delusion has reality. herd mentality, the consensus arrived at by those least qualified with the lowest quality information, will always be wrong.
