31 Toronto neighbourhoods mark zero COVID-19 cases, including hard-hit Thorncliffe Park

It's an exciting sign that a year and a half of community outreach is paying off, says Ahmed Hussein, CEO of The Neighbourhood Organization in Thorncliffe Park. But they're not stopping until 100 per cent of eligible residents are vaccinated.

Hmm, it sounds like what this article is saying is that vaccines work? No way, come on that can't be possible.

That’s excellent to see no cases in 3 weeks in thorncliffe. But not to be a Debbie downer but I will. the adult vax rate in that community is 54% compared to 65% for rest of toronto. The city needs to up the outreach game there

"I guess the year of police-supported anti-masker/​anti-vaxxers marches worked to bring down the imaginary numbers of this supposed disease. The vaccination rates are also fake truths to coincide with fake news! My freedoms have been restored!" - Covidiots

This feels so unreal... I'm just bracing for bad news. So glad it seems like we're finally coming out of this nightmare (hope I'm not speaking too soon).

At the same time, like half of the white house and congress just got the delta variant despite being fully vaxxed.

Vaccines work to reduce symptoms and hospitalizations, but they don't necessarily prevent infection or transmission. It's worth noting that we're down to zero reported cases, not necessarily zero infections, and it's still problematic if the delta variant is spreading and mutating.

That is great news and I look forward to more of it. Get vaccinated, people, it's easy now!
