True....did people really expect the blackface prime minister who got outsmarted for two weeks with basic railroad blockades was suddenly going to emerge as Canada's champion for fighting a global pandemic ?    C'mon man !

We can be grateful towards the Chinese for volunteering to wear mask, when returning from China. Had the Iranians shown such discipline, we wouldn't be in this mess.

Fear is a virus, and you've been infected.  Doesn't hurt to be prepared but let's keep things in perspective.

Unfortunately the virus doesn't discriminate and it takes many tens of innocent Iranians before killing one regime associate. That said many regime thugs and a few regime ayatollahs have been sent to

It's hard to get a perspective on this since we don't really know how it's going to go. The health authorities do say it's only a matter of time. And if you examine what is known or what we think abou

Had our so-called "government" bothered to do even the basic level of screening at the border...

It wouldn't of stopped the virus. They needed to close their border to all infected countries, and just maintain trade to keep the economy stable.

agreed, but we didn't do ANYTHING.   Further, we could never stop the virus, but the key was to delay wholesale infection until treatments and later vaccines were proven and available.

I don't buy the excuse that we need to wait 18 months for a vaccine. That's how long it takes to make a Herpes vaccine or whatever. When the global community has trillions of dollars it it's disposal, it shouldn't take more than 6 months.

Like I said before... begin full scale trials on prisoners, wait a month to see what the wide effects are... and then pick the vaccine with the best results.

What we shouldn't tolerate, is useless red tape delays, that put the entire planet at risk.

As I already implied: there are several vaccine candidates now in approval process.   EVERY government involved knows very well they have to move hard and fast, but there are still serious implications to re-assigning existing drug regimens or new vaccines to unknown diseases or with unknown results.

This is why the delay thing is so important.   People in Yurp and elsewhere are essentially guinea pigs for those of us who can come later.   The higher/earlier community transmission in those countries have resulted in a lot of trial-and-error stuff we can benefit from.

Let the prisoners be those guinea pigs.... Heck I would offer Paul Bernardo a reduced sentence, if he took the needle! If it's saves thousands of live, who cares about the victims families. I'm not even kidding. 

The most dangerous vaccine trials should happen with the prisoners. Especially in the US. If you're going to put someone on death row, it makes no sense to kill them, before offering to do medical research, in exchange for a lower sentence.

I'm sorry if that offends the woke, politically correct people, but we need to think outside the box during national emergencies.

Why especially in the US ?    Many countries in the world have the death penalty and prisoners on death row.

Only if they send Trump to the electric chair for playing it down as a Democrat hoax to destroy the market.

He said the hoax was the Democrats were blaming him for the virus, not that the virus itself is a hoax. Stop believing your TDS fueled UK media, they are feeding you obvious propaganda.

Well because we don't have the death penalty in Canada, and if you're going to kill the inmates anyways... there is nothing immoral, about doing medical tests on them... if they agree to a lower sentence. Who's going to complain about it, Bernie Sanders?

Yes...Sanders and a lot of other people.    Don't care what Canada has....many other nations have the death penalty besides the United States.

If I was running Canada, would re-instate the death penalty, just to have people that can be used during medical emergencies. I would offer most prisoners a chance at life, if they agree to medical tests, that can provide great benefits to society. I think that would give them a way to make up for the crimes they've did. If anyone thinks this idea is immoral, let me know.

That's what I said Mr Cliche. I just did it more succinctly.

That isn't what you said, you said that Trump said the virus was a Democratic Hoax. He's not Nukedog.

I don't wish to distract from your message but would just like to caution against the use of raw statistics. Without further details about whether those under 65 who have been hospitalised had pre-existing health conditions simple percentages can be misleading.

Neither of the links seem to mention these details.

Due to the lack of more detailed information I would agree with you that everyone not just the elderly needs to exercise extreme caution but that may well be sloppy reporting.

This is true. One site I visit mentioned the greater number of obese people in the US, for example, as compared to China. I'd like to know how many of those younger people had pre-existing conditions of some sort too.

OK, but Canada had problems even when it wasn't an emergency.   Ironically, a Canadian doctor (Frances Oldham Kelsey) working for the U.S. FDA saved the U.S. from the thalidomide birth defects fiasco, while Canada approved the drug and is still paying damages to malformed victims.

Because the US locks up 3 out of every 100 citizens, you have a great supply of testing "volunteers".

The rest of the world has far more prisoners than the U.S.

Volunteers are easy to get for vax trials...already happening in Seattle right now.

All it takes is.....$$$$$$$    (USD...not CAD).
