Except for people who are unvaccinated. If every unvaccinated person got it, the hospitals and ICUs would be overwhelmed for a month or so. Some may adopt the "serves them right" philosophy, except those hospitals and ICUs are the same ones the rest of the population need as well, including the 7% who are vaccinated and contract it badly, and then the 3% of that group who then go on to need an ICU.

On your number, are you saying 3% of people end up in ICE (if so, that is profoundly off), or are you saying 3% of 7% (so 0.21%) of vaccinated people end up in ICUS.

As of today, there are 200 people in Ontario ICUs with COVID. Of the 120 where vaccination status is reported, 45 are vaccinated. If we extrapolate, that would mean there are 75 people in ICU's with COVID that are vaccinated. Total, not daily admissions, total. Based on your numbers, that would mean there is only 2500 vaccinated people with COVID (not daily, total) if it's the 3%. If it's the .21%, then that is 35,000 cases, so I still think that number is a bit high. Also, this does not factor in vaccinated individuals that are in ICU's for reasons other than COVID (I'm not saying that it's significant number, but that would lower the COVID-caused cases in ICUs). Lastly, that doesn't breakdown higher risk individuals (elderly people, people with diabetes - by definition, if they are higher risk, they disproportionately would end up in ICUs - which would bring the risk of people not in the categories lower

The Q has shut down for two weeks.

The O has a BoG meeting tomorrow.

Me thinks, the league gets shut down before the end of the weekend.

Now the questions on here are answered as the January 2nd game in Hamilton is postponed due to Niagara Covid protocol.

Gonna stick with my prediction that the OHL will close for all of January and return in February and we will have a shortened season.

If I had to guess they will shut down for all of January and try and make the games up at a later date

Although I guess that would mean changing the memorial cup schedule . . . Guess it really is up to the TV provider if they are up for that . . .

What a joke.

We need to learn to live with this, it is not going away, we cannot live in a bubble forever . . . Eventually you have to take the training wheels off of your kids bike . . .

We are learning to live with COVID. When case counts decrease, restrictions are relaxed. When case counts increase, more restrictions are added.

The OHL season started in October because most people got their COVID shots. However the protection from the shots starts to decrease after 3-4 months. So now with this variant we need to get booster shots to reduce Omicron. Then things can go back to minimal restrictions again.

Eventually COVID will go away but it’s a long process. We will likely need booster shots every 4-6 months for the next couple of years before COVID is no longer a threat.

I know Strohs it’s very frustrating. But we know a lot more about COVID now then we did when it first started. Eventually life will get back to normal. But sometimes it’s hard to be patient.

Actually, if you look at the provincial government's latest guidelines, numbers will soon drop drastically, because they aren't testing anymore. Now if you have symptoms, you just assume you have it and quarantine for 5 days.

They have finally realized how much time and resources they are wasting on testing people to identify a virus that will not make 99% of the people remotely ill nevermind seriously ill. They have figured out to use these testing resources on the most vulnerable in society which is what they should be doing.

Data is clearly showing that omnicron is obviously much more transmissible but resulting in no where near as serious illness and or death

Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of the pandemic as many have suggested
