THREAD: A concerned person sent me tonight's Saskatchewan Physician COVID-19 town hall slides. "This was a devastating, heartbreaking meeting," they said. "We need the public to know how dire the situation is."

Some highlights to follow. #skpoli
"Increased hospitalizations and deaths *will occur* [in] next 2-4 weeks." // Higher hospitlization so far in 2021 compared to pandemic months in all of 2020. #skpoli
-- Feeing impact of travel in and out of communities
-- Large outbreak at mining site
-- Low testing in some areas
-- Inconsistent mask use and distancing at play in nearly all workplace outbreaks
-- "vaccine selection anger" at clinics

These weekly slides are prepared by doctors for doctors on Thursday nights and are eventually posted online: sometimes on Friday afternoons, this week it was either Sunday/Monday. Thanks to the person for sharing these more immediately. #skpoli
