There was a press briefing. I didn’t watch it; I was busy and kind of depressed about the pandemic. (I am well within my mental health limits, but it is hard to be so close to the train wreck that is the global COVID-19 response.) This thread gives a summary of the press briefing.
Reminder that these statistics are wildly inaccurate. First, the province case counts do not include reinfections for some bizarre reason. Second, the case counts are wildly undercounted: two different studies estimated the undercount as being ~90x. Third, hospitalizations are only counted if the person tested positive on a PCR test; rapid tests don’t count. Fourth, hospitalizations don’t count if they were discharged on the same day.
