N.B. COVID-19 roundup: Higgs sees approval rating drop to record low 38%



Premier Blaine Higgs’s approval rating has dropped to an all-time low amid record high COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths that followed all Public Health restrictions being lifted and the province being opened up, a new poll suggests. The Angus Reid Institute poll ranking the popularity of the provincial premiers shows Higgs has suffered a “precipitous” drop to 38 per cent, from 55 per cent in June. This “is mirrored by the soaring number of COVID-19 cases across the province,” Angus Reid said in a statement Wednesday, when the poll was released. “With over 1,000 active cases reported in the province, hospitals have announced that they’re postponing some non-urgent procedures and moving their internal readiness level to ‘red alert.’ ” The institute noted New Brunswick was the first province to pop out of the Atlantic bubble, “opening itself up to the rest of Canada before its neighbours in June.” In May, Higgs’s support stood at 80 per cent. On July 30 at 11:59 p.m., the province moved to the green phase of COVID-19 recovery and removed the mandatory order before reaching its goal to have 75 per cent of the eligible population fully vaccinated, when only 66.7 per cent were double-dosed. Canada’s top doctor had warned the day before that the country could be seeing the start of a variant-driven fourth wave.  Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam said the seriousness of the pandemic’s resurgence would depend largely on vaccination coverage. “This forecast reaffirms the need to take a cautious approach to relaxing public health measures, to remain vigilant and responsive to signs of resurgence, and to continue to increase first and second dose vaccination coverage,” she had said. New Brunswick reinstated the state of emergency on Sept. 24. The online poll was conducted from Sept. 29 to Oct. 3. Since June, all but one premier who was in power at the time has seen their respective levels of approval decline, the poll indicates. Ontario Premier Doug Ford is the lone exception, “with a statistically insignificant one-point increase on job performance from Ontarians, the institute said. “The most sobering assessments from their constituencies are for Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and New Brunswick’s Blaine Higgs, both of whom have seen their approval crash nearly 20 points in the last quarter, from 61 and 55 per cent then to 43 and 38 per cent now respectively.” Alberta’s Jason Kenney is currently the least-approved-of premier among his own constituents at 22 per cent, according to the poll.  “Conversations about Kenney’s long-term political future have been ongoing for some time, and with this wave of data, are unlikely to abate,” the institute said. The poll was conducted among a “representative randomized sample” of 5,011 Canadian adults who are members of Angus Reid Forum, who either earn points redeemable for online gift cards or get entered into sweepstakes draws with chances to win gift cards from a variety of Canadian retailers, according to the institute’s website. A probability sample of this size would carry a margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points, 19 times out of 20, the institute said. A total of 265 New Brunswickers were polled. P.E.I. and the territories are not included in the poll, which was self-commissioned and paid for by the Angus Reid Institute. Outbreaks hit 2 more Moncton Hospital units The Moncton Hospital has COVID-19 outbreaks on two more units — oncology and orthopedics. The units, 4200 and 5600, are closed to admissions and transfers until further notice, executive director Christa Wheeler-Thorne said in a statement Wednesday. “During this time, no patients will be admitted or transferred, and patients are restricted to their rooms.” Staff are following enhanced infection prevention and control guidelines, and foot traffic is limited to essential services, such as food services, said Wheeler-Thorne. The designated support person program has also been suspended. The Moncton Hospital is currently able to safely staff the three units that have now been hit with COVID-19 outbreaks, said executive director Christa Wheeler-Thorne. (CBC) Public Health has begun its contact tracing process and will notify anyone who is a close contact and needs to be tested for COVID-19, she said.  Affected patients and staff are also being notified and will receive swabs. For an outbreak to be declared over, two full viral cycles — or 28 days — without any new cases are required.  On Sept. 27, the hospital declared an outbreak on the geriatric unit. The most recent case on that unit, 5200, was recorded on Oct. 1, said Wheeler-Thorne. “We are currently able to safely staff these units,” she said. Horizon enters ‘red alert’ phase All Horizon Health Network hospitals and health-care centres moved to the COVID-19 “red alert” level Wednesday in order to redeploy staff to maintain emergency services and intensive care units to care for a growing number of COVID-19 patients and others who are critically ill. Some non-urgent elective surgeries, medical procedures and outpatient appointments may need to be postponed as well. Patients and clients who are affected will be contacted directly by Horizon or their health-care provider, officials have said. Otherwise, people should attend their appointments, as scheduled. Outpatient appointments include: appointments at ambulatory outpatient clinics and professional services outpatient appointments, such as therapeutic services, blood and specimen collection, diagnostic imaging (X-ray), electrodiagnostics and respiratory therapy, the release said. All Vitalité Health Network hospitals moved to the red alert level Tuesday. Both Horizon and Vitalité have also suspended all hospital visits. Ambulance New Brunswick is also moving to the red alert level to help maintain essential services and ensure services are redeployed as needed, Health Minister Dorothy Shephard announced Tuesday. Minister dismisses call for investigation of nursing home outbreak New Brunswick’s Social Development minister is dismissing calls for an independent investigation into the COVID-19 outbreak at the Drew Nursing Home in Sackville. Thirty residents and 10 employees at the 118-bed facility have tested positive so far and eight residents have died. Bruce Fitch says an investigation would be a wasteful exercise in finger-pointing. “I think when you look at the amount of resources that have been put towards the various outbreaks, again, that is an appropriate response,” he said Wednesday. “Sometimes the outcomes are very, very positive. And sometimes, unfortunately with this delta [variant] … people were asymptomatic and they had COVID and they were going to work and it was being passed around.” Social Development Minister Bruce Fitch points to the highly transmissible delta variant, which can be spread by asymptomatic people, as being to blame for the deadly outbreak at Drew Nursing Home. (Shane Magee/CBC) Megan Mitton, the MLA for Memramcook-Tantramar and the Green Party’s health critic, called for a probe of the Drew outbreak Tuesday and for the government to be more transparent about outbreaks at other facilities. She contends questions should be answered publicly about whether the response was adequate and whether nursing home COVID protocols, such as containment measures, should be strengthened to better deal with the highly transmissible delta variant. Case counts at the Drew Nursing Home have continued to climb since Sept. 14, when the home announced it was closed to visitors after a staff member had tested positive. Fitch argues it’s easy to criticize after the fact and say the government should have done something different. “Again, I go to the fact that this variant was a variant that was stronger, spread faster, created more spread if you weren’t vaccinated.” The support team at the Drew Nursing Home has included staff from Social Development and Public Health, other nursing homes, retired nurses, infection control specialists and the Red Cross, he said. A total of 16 rapid response teams are currently deployed across the province to help manage outbreaks, Fitch said. “And you know, I think if someone was looking to help, they should be trying to support facilities like the nursing homes in their areas, and trying to promote the vaccination and trying to make sure that people protect themselves, their families and the people that they work with.” On Tuesday, in response to Mitton, Health Minister Dorothy Shephard said the government evaluates every outbreak and has been “very transparent.” “If they can’t get answers to their questions, we could take it under advisement. But I’m not sure of any questions that they would ask that we wouldn’t answer,” she said. 1,092 active cases Public Health reported 109 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, putting the active case count at 1,092. Sixty-three people are in hospital with the virus, 27 of them in intensive care. One of the people hospitalized is under the age of 19. As of Tuesday, 81.6 per cent of New Brunswickers age 12 and older are fully vaccinated, while 90.8 per cent have received their first dose. New Brunswick has had 5,367 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began, with 4,199 recoveries so far and 75 COVID-related deaths. A total of 493,631 tests have been conducted to date.
