New Brunswick Public Health is reporting 100 new cases of COVID-19.

There are 56 people hospitalized due to the virus with 23 in intensive care. No one under 19 is currently hospitalized.

Of those in hospital, 41 are unvaccinated, four are partially vaccinated and 11 are fully vaccinated.

There are also 52 recoveries in Saturday’s update.

The number of active cases is 929.

Of the new cases, 66 are unvaccinated, five are partially vaccinated and 29 are fully vaccinated.

Public Health has confirmed four new cases at King Street Elementary in Miramichi. Parents are advised to check emails and voice mails for further details.

Saturday’s update shows 81.3 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and 90.5 per cent have received their first dose of a vaccine.

‘Circuit breaker’ restrictions 

New Brunswickers are spending the Thanksgiving holiday weekend differently this year. 

“Circuit breaker” restrictions were imposed Friday.

They will last for at least 14 days in Zone 1, as far north as and including Sainte-Anne-de-Kent and including Havelock in Zone 2, the northern portion of Zone 3 from and including Deerville and Florenceville-Bristol, all of Zone 4 (Edmundston region) and Menneval in Zone 5. 

In regions under the restrictions, gatherings in private homes or outside with members not from the same household are prohibited, and travel to or from regions is restricted except for essential reasons, which includes work, school and health appointments.

Residents who wish to gather with members outside of their household for Thanksgiving until midnight Monday are only permitted to do so in a place where the law requires proof of vaccination, such as restaurants.

A single household includes individuals living together. It can be extended to include caregivers for any of those people, plus any parent, child, sibling, grandparent or grandchild of those people who requires support, plus any one additional person who lives alone at another address who requires support.

There are no restrictions on fully vaccinated people gathering at businesses, events and services where proof of full vaccination with a government issued ID is required. Individuals at these venues must wear a mask at all times except when eating or drinking.

More information on the circuit breaker restrictions can be found on the Government of New Brunswick’s website.

Peace officers have more powers this weekend

Peace offers are being given extended powers this long weekend to weed out Thanksgiving gatherings in violation of the province’s revised mandatory order.

The order comes as the province sees new single-day highs in cases and deaths in the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Under the revised order, peace officers can order a premise be vacated and can detain people under certain conditions.

Shift to ‘red’ in hospitals

This comes as the Horizon Health Network announced it will move all of its hospitals and health-care centres to the “red alert” COVID-19 level next Wednesday.

The Vitalité Health Network also announced plans Thursday to move all of its hospitals to “red alert” next Tuesday. The change took effect immediately for the Campbellton Regional Hospital, however, because of a COVID-19 outbreak there.

Some non-urgent medical procedures and elective surgeries may be postponed, Horizon said in a news release.

Non-urgent ambulatory outpatient clinics and professional service outpatient appointments, including therapeutic services, blood and specimen collection, diagnostic imaging (X-ray), electrodiagnostics and respiratory therapy, may also be postponed.

Loch Lomond Villa has confirmed a COVID-19 outbreak has taken place in at least one of its buildings.

Building 3 (The Crossing) on 165 Loch Lomond Rd. is closed to visitors effective immediately due to a confirmed COVID-19 outbreak.

Building 2 (The Cornerstone) on 219 Ellerdale St. and Building 1 (The Milestone) on 221 Ellerdale St. are closed to all visitors until further notice. Tenants are requested to maintain their household bubble until further notice as a precautionary measure.

Public Health recommends that people who have been at a possible public exposure site and are not fully vaccinated get a COVID test, even if they don’t have symptoms. They can book an appointment online or call Tele-Care 811.

If they do have symptoms, they must isolate while they await their results.

For people who are fully vaccinated, Public Health recommends they monitor for symptoms for 14 days after the possible exposure and get a COVID test if symptoms develop.

Anyone who frequented the locations at the specified dates and times should also avoid visiting settings with vulnerable populations such as nursing homes, correctional facilities and shelters for the next 14 days.

What to do if you have a symptom

People concerned they might have COVID-19 can take a self-assessment test online.

Public Health says symptoms of the illness have included a fever above 38 C, a new or worsening cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache, a new onset of fatigue, and difficulty breathing.

In children, symptoms have also included purple markings on the fingers and toes.

People with one of those symptoms should stay at home, call 811 or their doctor and follow instructions.

Fashion firm Rent the Runway aims for nearly $1.3 billion valuation in U.S. IPO

Published

 on

Rent the Runway is aiming for a valuation of nearly $1.3 billion in its U.S. initial public offering, as the fashion rental company looks to cash in on the rising interest in pre-owned clothing.

The company, founded in 2009, lets users rent and shop second-hand clothes and accessories such as handbags and jewelry in over 18,000 styles from more than 750 designer brands. It also allows customers to rent and shop home goods.

Rent the Runway plans to sell 15 million shares priced between $18.00 and $21.00 apiece in its IPO, raising $315 million, according to a filing https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1468327/000119312521301156/d194411ds1a.htm.

Earlier this month, the Brooklyn, New York-based company disclosed a near 39% drop in revenue for the fiscal year 2020. Its top line also took a hit in the first half of this fiscal year, with revenue down 9% for the period ended July 31.

Rent the Runway said its active subscribers more than doubled to 111,732 in the first nine months of 2021.

Demand for second-hand clothes has jumped in recent months as customers become increasingly conscious about their carbon footprint, boosting revenues at styling service Stitch Fix and online resale shop ThredUp.

Goldman Sachs & Co, Morgan Stanley and Barclays are the lead underwriters for the offering. Rent the Runway will list its stock on the Nasdaq under the symbol “RENT”.

Why did the SEC release a report on GameStop?

Published

 on

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday released a report examining the frenzied trading in shares of retailer GameStop Corp, and other ‘meme’ stocks, in January, and recommended some areas for further regulatory consideration.

The report could have implications that affect where retail stock orders are executed and how that service is paid for, when brokers can restrict trading, and the amount of transparency around short sales.

Here are some key details from the GameStop saga:

WHAT HAPPENED?

Shares of GameStop surged more than 1,600% in January as retail investors colluded in online forums like Reddit‘s WallStreetBets to try to bid up the heavily shorted stock and force hedge funds to unwind their bets against it, with the hope the short squeeze would drive the price even higher.

The extreme volatility in GameStop shares, along with other popular meme stocks, prompted the clearinghouse that guarantees trades before they are completed to raise the collateral from brokers to clear the trades.

That led several brokerages, including Robinhood Markets, to temporarily restrict trading in the red-hot stocks, helping curb the rally, infuriating retail traders and rattling market confidence. Others, like Charles Schwab Corp, adjusted margin requirements and limited advanced options strategies on the affected stocks.

WHY THE SURGE IN RETAIL TRADING?

In late 2019, large retail brokers like Schwab and Fidelity followed Robinhood’s lead and eliminated trading commissions.

Then, in early 2020, with COVID-19 lockdowns keeping people at home, major entertainment and sporting events canceled, and government stimulus checks sent to many U.S. households, retail trading levels soared.

While the main narrative around the GameStop frenzy was retail investors taking on big hedge funds, institutional investors were also major players in the buying and selling.

WHO WAS HURT?

Hedge fund Melvin Capital required a $2.75 billion lifeline when it had to close out its short position in GameStop at a huge loss in January.

Anybody who bought GameStop shares at $482.95 on Jan. 28 and then sold them since would have lost money.

GameStop shares are currently at $183.28, around 1,275% higher than they were a year ago.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE?

– Congress held several hearings on the GameStop episode;

– The SEC has asked for public comments on the effects of the “gamification” of trading apps and whether the public is at risk;

– The main post-trade utility for U.S. stocks has recommended shortening the settlement cycle for stock trades to one day after the trade happens, from two days;

– Various companies and industry groups have made recommendations on improving transparency around the execution of retail orders.

Pfizer asks Health Canada to approve COVID-19 vaccine for kids 5 to 11 years old – CBC.ca

Published

 on


Pfizer has asked Health Canada to approve the first COVID-19 vaccine for children aged five to 11 years old.

As soon as the regulator gives the green light, providers will be able to start offering the COVID-19 shot to kids, though new child-sized doses might need to be procured.

The doses are about one-third the size given to adults and teens age 12 and up.

Pfizer has delivered more than 46 million doses to Canada to date, and an analysis of the available data on administration from provincial and federal governments suggests there are more than enough Pfizer doses already in Canada to vaccinate kids between the ages of five and 11. 

But simply pulling smaller doses from vials Canada already had stockpiled across the country may not be advised, chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam said at a media briefing late last week.

“We also understand from Pfizer that this actual formulation has shifted,” Tam said Friday. “This is a next generation formulation, so that is something that needs to be examined by the regulator.”

Canada signed a new contract with Pfizer for pediatric doses last spring.

The vaccine was developed in partnership with Germany’s BioNTech and is now marketed under the brand name Comirnaty. It was authorized for people at least 16 years old last December, and for kids between 12 and 15 in May.

Pfizer already submitted clinical trial data for its child-sized dose to Health Canada at the beginning of the month, and made a formal request for approval to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration last week.

The company said the results were comparable to those recorded in the Pfizer-BioNTech study in people aged 16 to 25.

‘Thorough scientific review’ required before authorization

In a statement, Health Canada said it will prioritize the review of the submission, while maintaining high scientific standards for safety, efficacy and quality.

“Health Canada will only authorize the use of Comirnaty if the independent and thorough scientific review of all the data included in the submission showed that the benefits of the vaccine outweighed the potential risks in this age group,” the statement said.

WATCH | Dr. Theresa Tam talks about children getting vaccinated against COVID:

Tam is asked to advise parents considering COVID-19 vaccines for children

24 days ago

A reporter asks Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief public health officer, for her advice to parents considering vaccinating their children once the COVID-19 vaccine becomes available to those younger than 12. 4:01

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has also been tested on children as young as six months old. Topline data for children under five years old is expected as soon as the end of the year.

Health Canada said it expects to receive more data for review from Pfizer for younger age groups, as well as other manufacturers for various age ranges in the coming months.

Once the vaccine is approved for kids, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) will weigh in on whether the benefits of the shot outweigh potential risks for young children. The Public Health Agency of Canada has noted rare incidents of myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, after receiving an mRNA vaccine such as Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.

As of Oct. 1, Health Canada has documented 859 cases associated with the vaccines, which mainly seem to affect people under 40 years old. That’s out of millions of doses given. 

The risk of myocarditis appears to be low, according to Tim Sly, a Ryerson University epidemiologist with expertise in risk management.

“Of course, no one considers any complication in a child to be acceptable, and a tremendous amount of caution is being taken to look for and identify all problems,” said Sly in a recent email exchange with The Canadian Press.

A COVID-19 infection produces a very high risk of cardiovascular problems, he noted.

Aside from protecting kids against more serious symptoms of COVID-19, the vaccine would also reduce the risk of a child passing the virus on to a vulnerable family member and make for a better school environment with less stress about transmission.
