  1. The number of reported cases is irrelevant. Hospitalisations and deaths are the only important numbers. In fact, now is the best time for as many as people as possible to contract a virus which is inevitable to encounter. Outdoor activities, sunshine, fresh air are far better environments to defend against the effects of illness.
    When lying public health officials continue to warn of second waves, they never define these realities, or the fact that all previous lockdown measures have only offset the outbreak to a later time when we are once again cooped up in stale and enclosed quarters.

  2. this is in the sault. if you go on their website and look at the locations it tells you…sault and area 21 cases…headline says case #22 ..the sault and area now has 22 confirmed cases, with 1 being active ( which is this case) all others have resolved

  3. Very confusing as to details but thanks for the update. Why is everything a big secret don’t need a name but why panic all of Algoma if it’s not necessary?
