Yukon public health officials report 32 new cases of COVID-19 from over the weekend.

As of Monday afternoon, there were 69 active cases, as the outbreak continues to wane, the government reported.

In its brief statement, the numbers were not broken down as to the communities the cases occurred in, and there was no indication if the current territorial state of emergency will be extended from its possible Dec. 3 expiration.

Geoff - check your sources. Give your head a shake. Think about it. The vast, vast majority of professional basketball, baseball, hockey, football, Olympic sports athletes are fully vaccinated. These multi million dollar athletes in billion dollar sports.

Please name a single pro level athlete that has had what you are describing.
I know a handful of non pro athletes that are damaged for life from…wait for it….covid infections. Not vaccines.

Lots of videos everywhere under the heading "video compilation of athletes dying" ...it seems all these athletes are vaxxed and having heart problems .
Further to that Circulation Research has come out with an article on November 8 talking about myocarditis and saying the vaccines are extremely dangerous . This is a peer reviewed journal.

@123 amazing! I've never seen so many words at once that don't actually say anything, it shows that you have NO clue what your talking about and you just regurgitate the same as everyone else.. follow the science.. well we are, and we can't find it, neither can Pfizer, Moderna, J&J..

At Anonymous - Yes, yes, the Omicron variant is serious… Many people died because of Omicron. A great subplot for an episode of Star Trek. Fortunately though we know that those futuristic Myth Busters - James T Kirk and commander Spock, showed us that Omicron is survivable if you avail yourself to the Earth’s natural protections…

However, back here in the past where we’re all currently stuck with the Liberal Colonizers it’s probably good that you get your shots… And the next one, and the next one, and the… While tolerating more lockdowns, more restrictions, more rules, more taxes, and less quality of life - FFS! There are greater and more terrible things to fear than Omicron. Liberals are like bears. Once you feed them some of your freedoms they keep coming back for more… And soon we go from citizen to comrade. Por la raza todo… Por l’estado todo…

Don’t worry bout a thing…. Cause every little thing is gonna be all right…

With all the vaccine needles being produced there will be supply chain issues for the Tattoo Parlours… But that’s okay because all of the Jailhouse Artisans will be out on the streets looking to make a few bucks.

Life will be a dystopian nightmare for everyone once those sleepy-headed Liberals wake from their dreams… Then we can all go off into the future believing that Omicron is dangerous and a threat to life and existence itself… Maybe if we get rid of the actor Trudeau and elect real actors we could win gold rather than second place Silver and escape this tragicomedy bunned off as governance.

Hold on though and start gathering up the fig leaves. Pretty soon you will own nothing and be happy… Not even the clothes on your back. How do Liberal voters sleep at night?

I have to ask - Are you just having fun with everyone in the comment section or do you really believe what you wrote? It’s an absolutely genuine inquiry. I’m curious.

So you always do an article on Monday stating the COVID numbers that include Friday thru Monday. Big numbers fit the narrative better I guess. We are actually 6 to 7 per day now and dropping. So come on Whitehorse Star don't just report the narrative.

Omicron is serious. I've been skeptical about the vaccines. That's why I hadn't taken them. But when I heard about Omicron that thing shook me to the core. I finally did the right thing. I picked up the damn phone and manned up and made an appointment for me, my wife, and her 6 beautiful children. Maybe the risk wasn't worth it for Delta. But for Omicron? You'd have to be a fool to wade in its waters unprotected. Am I worried about side effects for me and my family? You betcha. Just get vaccinated and hold your breath and hope for the best. That's what I'm doing and I can't wait to feel that needle in my skin and know I'm at least a little safer.

Struck a cord with the FearDumb crowd.

I haven’t lost any freedoms, you may have due to your choice, but that’s not my problem.
If you don’t understand science, again, that’s not my problem.

If every unicorn anti-establishment figure that tickles your fancy, that’s your sheepishly choice. Again, not my problem.
Everyone and everything that disagrees with you isn’t all about Marxism. If you can’t understand the issue, again, not my problem.

@Matthew, Ireland apparently has a 95 percent vaccination rate and they are talking about lockdowns (maybe they started already). "Just two weeks". How is it that media just won't ask them to address this contradiction. Officials keep saying "how much more we know", it's insultingly patronizing as they ramp up recommendations for restrictions and mandates, and blame rising Covid rates on 5 percent who don't want the vaccine.

I can't blame politicians, they're just reacting to the fear of citizens. Yesterday on the CBC 6:00 news yet another medical "expert" said yet again governments are "failing" globally because they're taking a "market-based" approach to vaccinations when some countries have no vaccines. The nerve of him, when all day long his colleagues were saying "get the booster, get the booster". Less than an hour before he weighed in with his scolding I was hearing that on the news.

Why don't they look at each other, listen to each other, challenge each other. They're deliberately and methodically scaring citizens so that they'll pressure politicians and then we get the odd pious outlier who wants to blame us and our governments for being greedy. The reaction to Omicron is a travesty of "the science".

Marxist Liberals still won't give us any details so we can practice avoidance. Tells me Comrade Silver doesn't want us to. When the citizenry cannot help themselves, they are easier to control. Worked in Russia, China and Cuba.

"Come on antivaxxers, bring your best comments and opinions that can be easily refuted with a flushing toilet sound."
Is the flushing sound from the human rights and civil liberties that you discarded without a second thought?

Will there be a Christmas this year or a lockdown?
I sometimes wonder if the authorities are overreacting. If there was this much attention and spending on obesity and addiction we would be farther ahead with those scourges.

Hmm.. good to see that 86% vaccination rate (highest in Canada) goes hand in hand with the highest covid rate in Canada.. tells you 1 of 2 things, vaccines don't work, or the vaxxed are the spreaders.. CLEARLY safe 6 and masks don't work.. get that through your heads folks.. let's go back to normal and not let the fear of dying with covid dictate our lives! After all, covid only kills 1% of its hosts..
