This article reports that Prince George is suing its insurer, who is denying claims for losses stemming from losses due to closures for COVID-19.
This article reports that Minister Dix says there are no plans to lift vax mandates for public servants and health-care workers.
This article reports that the province says that there were 13,946,806 virtual health care visits in 2020-21 — more than nineteen times what there were in 2019-20 and almost 2.5 times as many as there were in-person visits.
This report (from April 2022) says that people who use drugs in DTES and Downtown South did not lag that much in getting a second dose, but they are way behind in getting boosters.
I suspect that Public Health outreach worked harder on the first two doses, but I have no data to support that supposition.
(I also wonder what “people who use drugs” really means in the context of this article. Almost everybody uses caffeine and alcohol, and I have the impression that a lot of people smoke weed.)
