    On a positive note, some good news: the vaccines are getting distributed faster - so this may help with getting things under control and perhaps see the return of students to in class participation at university, sports, and bring more people back to work.

    Ontario to expand COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to all adults by end of May
    Ontario plans to substantially expand eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines in May, officials said Thursday, with shipments to the province expected to ramp up in the coming weeks.

    With millions of doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines anticipated to begin arriving in Ontario, the province's vaccine task force says it can accelerate its timeline so all adults will be able to register for a first dose by the end of May. Week of May 24: Ontario adults over the age of 18.
    Also if we continue on a more aggressive downward trend with cases between now and then, it brings with it more hope for university sports.

    Recently we outpaced the USA with Covid case loads, because of our initial slow vaccine roll out, which shows that the vaccines do work - in the USA who's been distributing them faster. In the last two weeks, our vaccine roll out has picked up speed, and there are also some people who have had the virus and have developed herd immunity. By June things could be significantly better.
    The vaccines are shown to be very effective in control of the virus. Let's see what happens by mid June - after more of the population including young adults are vaccinated, and or develop herd immunity.
