@ClippetyClop Yeah, actually masks for sick people, washing your hands after touching shared objects or door handles will be more effective than the vaccine because it'll be effective for the strand of the vaccine but also for all the other strands that will not be covered by the vaccine.

@garth The upcoming vaccine will be for a RNA virus of the coronavirus family. So, it means that it will not be really efficient and would only reduce your chances to catch it initially but would probably be useless after a few months. That's why they give the flu vaccine every year before the flu season. The only reason to take that is that you want to reduce your risk of catching it because you are at risk and also to reduce the rush of people in the hospitals if your region is badly affected. But then... the vaccine needs to be tailored to your region or it will target the main version of the virus mostly present at the production of the vaccine. So yes, Garth would still need to be careful around people.... but not with people who would have not taken the vaccine because only the people who took the vaccine and fall sick would have a new version of the virus dangerous for garth.

Ehum, this is actually false information. Canada has "Parental leave" so we don't care if it's a man or a woman. So saying that fathers don't have parental leave is false information. On top of it, the maximum parental leave is of 17.75 months. If both parents split it evenly it becomes a dashing 8.9 months each... On top of that, there is also a maternity leave ( which is for before the birth) where the mother can take up to 15 weeks (about 3 months). The author didn't not read Unicef's article well. It doesn't say Canada doesn't have leave for the father, it says that Canada doesn't have parental leave "reserved" for the father, but it's not "reserved" for the mother either. It's 71 weeks for both, however they want to organize it. As much as I am happy that parental leave is available for fathers, I don't think that using fallacious title should be acceptable on a news website. It could be a honest mistake, but I think that it should be rectified.

"Prime" means a bonus you receive for doing something in French. I think they messed up and used "prime" from English with "toilettes" from French... I guess they just don't care if it makes sense since most people don't speak French, but it really sounds ridiculous in French like "the toilets you receive for working hard"... uh well.
