“Numbers no longer matter because Moe and his government are suffering from some collective confirmation bias telling them not to believe what the numbers are saying.“
Scott Moe made The Beaverton today
Pressprogress has a good article today on Scott Moe’s covid public policy blunders, from start to finish.
This is two things
Also note: “asymptomatic” doesn’t mean “covid doesn’t affect you” it just means you can’t tell its effects while they are happening. Ground glass -like substance may be stuck in your lungs reducing your breathing capacity, without you knowing it unless you have an XRay, which may cause brain damage which is hard to see unless you know what you’re looking for.
( since Scott Moe won’t )
“Your Friendly Neighbourhood Family Doc here. I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I can’t get you the tests you need. I’m sorry that I can’t get you to see a specialist in a reasonable amount of time. I’m sorry no support services exist to help you. I’m sorry your surgery was cancelled.
I’m sorry you called 911 and were told no ambulances were available. I’m sorry your loved one waited 12 hours to be seen in ER and then waited there for another 5 days to get a bed in the hospital. I’m sorry you were discharged earlier than you should have been to make space.
I’m sorry that you feel abandoned. I’m sorry you’re afraid you might need an ER and they won’t have space for you. I’m sorry that nothing I have done has made any difference.
I’ll keep trying though. I’ll keep being there when you need me as best I can. I’ll keep doing everything I possibly can with what little is left of our system.” – @Carlainsask@birdsite
This is the sort of thing our family Doctors have to say this week, with ICU/ERs across the province being near or past the breaking point, a record-breaking week of covid cases…while Scott Moe’s response is to attack healthcare workers and move on a big new push to hollow out the healthcare system with internal privatization. Instead of doing what the doctors are begging for, and using the newly reinstated Public Health Order to take immediate action.
This is Scott Moe’s Saskatchewan in a nutshell.

“This government’s inaction has allowed COVID to spread beyond any hope of tracing or control, and the “Minister for Health” doesn’t want to even try. Good luck everyone. We’re going to need it.” – @JarynCA@birdsite
COVID-19 has been a disaster for Saskatchewan under Scott Moe. What’s his response? Saying over and over again “We Can Do This”, see SaskBoy’s blog post on this : https://saskboy.wordpress.com/2021/02/02/plague-update-moe-says-we-can-do-this/
