Unfortunately, a virus does not infect by calendar quarters

During this huge lull in vaccine delivery, Trudeau keeps insisting that all is OK because Canada is “on track” to get all the vaccine doses promised by the end of this calendar quarter, that is, by the end of March.

Unfortunately, the coronavirus doesn’t keep to a quarterly schedule and this is still only February 8 and the virus is infecting thousands of Canadians daily, something it will do for weeks to come, and killing some of the people it infects, some of whom (many?) would undoubtedly have survived with the more timely administration of vaccine.

Sort of like promising a starving person that he will be OK when his delivery of food will get here next month.
