Some North Shore school districts are going to use home gargle tests for schoolkids. You’ll still have to drop them off at a LifeLabs, so they aren’t quite rapid tests, but they are still relatively speedy. (Plus you don’t have to get the back of your sinuses assaulted.)
+411 cases, +2 deaths, +38,538 first doses, +1,814 second doses. NB: Richard Zussman of Global News said that he looked into why today’s doses were so much lower than last week’s, and he said it was a data error, but not to worry, we are still doing about 50K per day. I don’t entirely know what to make of that.
Currently 360 in hospital / 127 in ICU, 4,890 active cases, 133,383 recovered.
We have 366,604 doses in the fridges; we’ll use it in 7.4 days at last week’s rate. We’ve given more doses than we’d gotten by 8 days ago.
We have 326,361 mRNA doses in the fridges; we’ll use it in 6.6 days at last week’s rate. We’ve given more mRNA doses than we’d gotten by 8 days ago.
