Re: USA Current Covid Hospitalizations..- Basicone

Again, you just look at 'cases'.  Positive today, negative tomorrow?
 
I look at the more important metrics, being the hospital capacity and occupancy.
 
In Quebec, despite the number of cases being quoted, we have 26 people in ICU (capacity over 680) and 130 hospitalizations (capacity over 7,000).  At peak we had way way more people in both situations.  So what justifies the hysteria?  Yes, young and healthy people are out enjoying themselves with little impact on hospitalizations.  The at-risk people are much better protected now than before.  All this with more than 25,000 test being done each day???
 
In Ontario, the situation is similar: 20 people in ICU and 44 hospitalized, again with over 25,000 tests daily.  So where is the medical crisis?
 
Covid is real and is dangerous for those in poor health and of course they should be in protective mode.  The rest of society is returning to normal and this is a good thing.
 
Children have gone back to school (at least most of them) and the media and the unions are crying murder each time there is a 'case', even though a 'case' does not lead to a hospitalization or ICU or death.
 
It is time for a more balanced management of the covid situation with more reliance on science and common sense instead of the media-fostered hysteria.  The government is again talking confinement even though the data does not support this.  The economy will turn downwards again with more bankruptcies and layoffs even though the hospital data remains robust.
