Yeah, i have to admit i was one of those anti seatbelt guys because back then the shoulder straps were very uncomfortable and bothered my neck (which i have issues with). Thank God they've changed over the years because those tickets were expensive.:lol:

Your brother in law should have fought that ticket because cars that didn't come from the factory with belts we're exempt.

Oilers' Archibald's risk of myocarditis would have been '10,000 fold' lower with COVID-19 vaccine: cardiologist

EDMONTON - 

As revelations emerge about the Edmonton Oilers' only player still unvaccinated against COVID-19 developing myocarditis, an Edmonton cardiologist wants you to know your risk of dealing with the same heart condition. 

On Sunday, Oilers head coach Dave Tippett told reporters that it's believed forward Josh Archibald, 28, developed myocarditis because of an asymptomatic case of COVID-19 that initially went undetected over the summer.

Archibald joins his teammate Alex Stalock on the injured reserve, who is also sidelined indefinitely with myocarditis after a case of COVID-19.

Myocarditis is a term that refers to inflammation of the heart muscle.

According to Dr. Ian Paterson, a cardiologist with the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute, the most common cause of the condition is a virus like COVID-19.

"Myocarditis related to COVID, related to the virus itself, is said to effect approximately five to 15 per cent of people who have been sick with the virus," Dr. Paterson told CTV News Edmonton on Monday.

The Edmonton cardiologist said, while cases of myocarditis have been linked to COVID-19 vaccines, those instances are much more rare than ones linked to COVID-19 itself.

"It's about a one in 100,000 risk of developing myocarditis from the vaccine versus about 10 per cent from the virus."

That's a roughly 0.001 per cent chance of developing the condition because of the COVID-19 vaccine.

That's a 10,000 fold greater risk of getting myocarditis from the virus, we think, than from the vaccine," said Dr. Paterson. "So absolutely we think that the vaccine will protect people from the virus and getting myocarditis from the virus."

Last week, the Ontario government recommended people between the ages of 18 and 24 receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine instead of Moderna because of an observed increase of cases of myocarditis.

They said the move was "out of an abundance of caution."

While the prognosis for people with COVID-19-related myocarditis is generally good, Dr. Paterson said it's recommended that physical sports be suspended for three to six months for people with the heart condition.

"Myocarditis related to virus, including COVID, we think are self-limited, meaning that people do expect a complete recovery of their heart," he said. "There is, however, concerns about athletes returning to play after they've had myocarditis."

"It's an injury to the heart," he said. "It's causing some inflammation of the heart muscle and there's a risk that if you're stimulating the body and, you know, exercising and having a lot of adrenaline pumping through you, that it could irritate the heart."  

On Sunday, Tippett said Archibald is still receiving multiple medical tests and there's no timeline for his return.

Here’s my rant :

Ford government suggest we all avoid large gatherings 

ford government then allows 100% capacity to sporting events ( maple leafs sports snd entertainment ) and concerts ( live nation )

Yet restaurants , gyms etc cannot have 100 capacity 

This isn’t fair 

theres going to be more people in the washrooms ar the acc tonight than there will at a restaurant 

and when they ask the government to explain this decision they don’t attend the meeting

Ontario to announce plan for exiting Step 3 next week, lifting more capacity limits

Making the announcement next week but getting pressure to hold off on the date for 3 weeks to see if there are spikes from the full house experiment with sports teams. Once again the little guy suffers.
