The beauty of excess deaths as a metric is that those things can be corrected for. The Reuters article I linked to mentions this feature.

True, but too often I've seen excess deaths being misrepresented because of that. Trying to explain that to some who is on the conspiracy train is tiring. I've generally just reduced my answers to simple yes/no unless it seems like there's an opportunity of beneficial discussion. Or sometimes I just say to myself IDGAF and don't bother saying anything. 

At the end of the day we know that limiting social contacts, masks etc are fairly effective if mostly everyone buys in. So I do what I'm willing to depending on the situation and also choose whether the risk in a particular is acceptable.

- Not sure where DaveM is getting his info from, but it seems to conflict with info I've seen

I got it from the place where the stats come from.

Ok. So at the time of the writing of the twitter link I posted it was 3wks after that change in data recording from BC. That link was also for Canadian stats and not just BC. Based on those two factors the change in data recording in BC would not make a noticeable, if any difference in the numbers listed in the link. Maybe in a few months from now it might, but that all depends on how virulent future waves are and what the numbers are lime in the more populous provinces.

@Chup - ill get back to you when I'm not mobile.

For anyone else: Is cominarty available yet or are we still using let alone promoting products that fall under the EAU? It makes zero sense to me to trust anything that's on the market now.

I'll say it again and all you can and should do your homework on this : 

they were never able to develop a vaccine for any corona / rhino virus in the past bc it mutates too fast. Both of those make up the common cold aka, the sniffles.

And these are the people you guys trust?

Trust the science like the Q tards trusted the plan eh? Ya how'd that work out for 'em.

I suggest you stop making assumptions about what other people believe until they state it explicitly, you’re rarely correct.

Whoa slow yer role homes. You guys assume everything about me all day long and insinuate as you please but i can't make that generalized statement?

Guess I hit a nerve and also proved another small double standard here in nbr.

Well, time to stop wasting time speaking logic and reason to people who are neither logical or reasonable!

Yeah, but then I'd have to stop talking to myself and I wouldn't have any more friends.

The hospitalization stats have been reported that way for a long time, maybe 6 months or more. I'm not sure about the death rates, I haven't seen it described like that before.
