Rahjai MD -
Good looking out. Im internist now practicing in Ontario. Used to work in murica.
Over here its just as much of a shit show as it has been in america with the testing parameters and bullshit politics. Our testing still takes well over a day and gets sent to winnepeg. They opened a few of them drive thru testing but man is it a little too late.
The numbers up north are also grossly inaccurate just as they are in america. Probably thousands upon thousands unaccounted for.
Our icus are already at capacity, we really cant handle an influx of corona cases. Fortunately in my area, havent any admits needing icu yet.
Stay safe my fellow colleague. We got docs self quarantining themselves after travelling even to the states because of lack of testing lol.
All these new testing sites are gonna do is fuel more panic.
People are uninformed and don't know how to properly interpret statistics it seems.
The news is only really drawing attention to total cases and not mentioning that the majority are being sent home in self isolation.
Let's follow Ottawa for a case study. New testing sites are just being opened up now and apparently there's only like 3 confirmed cases.
Now sure if there's panic yet but news stories show the shelves are starting to empty in Canada.
I assume this is what the situation is like in Ottawa as well
