The Yukon’s acting Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Catherine Elliott, has declared a COVID-19 outbreak in Whitehorse.
 
The territory is reporting 10 new cases since Friday and there are now 21 active cases in the territory.
 
“We declare an outbreak when a group of cases occur in a common location or people who share affiliations such as high school students,” she said at a press conference on Monday.

Mérida, June 14, 2021 (venezuelanalysis.com) – The Venezuelan government has accused Washington of lobbying international banks to block payments to the United Nations’ COVAX program, hindering the supply of Covid-19 vaccines.
 
The accusations come after COVAX authorities informed Venezuela’s UN Ambassador Héctor Constant Rosales that the Swiss-based UBS Bank had “blocked” and is “investigating” at least four outstanding transfers. COVAX reported a US $10 million outstanding deficit to complete Venezuela’s $120 million payment for 11 million vaccine doses, which cannot be dispatched until the funds are received. Caracas has reiterated that the full amount has been sent.
 
While the COVAX letter does not specify the cause of the bank’s decision to block the funds, an unnamed UBS spokesperson reportedly told The Associated Press that the bank “adheres to applicable legal and regulatory requirements in all jurisdictions, including respective sanction regimes such as the sanctions currently imposed by Switzerland, the UK, the EU and the United States.”

New PHO for restaurants and events is out today.

Tl;dr not much is changing. Midnight cut off for liquor, patrons can get up to play darts or pool, and no more “requirement” for contact tracing, increased capacity for gatherings indoors.

i know it's a monday so numbers are a bit depressed.

 

but 20 US states will record zero deaths today.  only 6 will have double-digit deaths.

 

Maybe 45% is close to herd immunity for this?  Well plus those who have survived I guess helps reduce cases.  Florida seems to be around the same level as they were a year ago before it really ramped up.  Fingers crossed they keep improving.

Canada only had 1,157 new infections yesterday.  Today we might be under 800.  That would be similar to about September 16th, 2020.

Basically no country in the world vaccinating faster than Canada at this point:

Isn’t that because other jurisdictions are ramping down their vaccination rates?

Not intentionally. Maybe due to vaccine hesitancy. Still only about 52% of Americans vaccinated for example:

That’s by choice, though.

Canada is sprinting to the finish line but the race is long over.

^^Not actually true though. We've already delivered more total doses per capita than most EU countries outside of the UK for example. And if countries stop vaccinating at 50% of their population, their race is never going to be over. We should be very happy with how things have gone here (after the slow start), but maybe a lot of that credit goes to the populace who are keen to get vaccinated as opposed to government leadership.

I sure hope a G7 country outperforms most EU countries.

Canadians have been very receptive to the vaccine, that’s for sure.

The take up rate in Hong Kong is about 20%, mainly because the government is telling them to get the vaccination.

France, Germany and Italy are G7 countries as well, and we're outperforming them. Only US and UK have performed better to date (but not recently) amongst G7 countries, and we'll have surpassed the US by every reasonable measurement in a couple of weeks.

I don’t think so.

NYT says France, Germany and Italy are at least 2x our second dose rate aka full vaccination. Canada is at 13%, and the lowest among the latter three is 21%. The UK is 45%, US 44%.

Canada is also benefitting from the US handing out more doses it doesn’t immediately need as the population chooses (not forced to be without) whether to get vaccinated.

Here’s the NYT data: https://www.nytimes....ns-tracker.html
