Ever get the feeling we’re not getting the real story about COVID?Apparently “the pandemic is over!” yet it seems like everyone you know is ill or has a family member who is, while schools have multiple classes merged together because of so many teachers are out sick, financial publications in the US and UK are directly naming COVID as the source of labour shortages (but we’re not making that connection here in Canada, it seems) – and the CDC in the US has now named COVID as the 8th most common cause of death for children.
We’re not through this yet, and there are so many simple things we could be doing to make things better.
Protect our Province BC member Dr. Susan Kuo hosts Dr. Sanjiv Gandhi in a discussion about British Columbia’s pandemic response so far, how the response has fallen short of the best available science and the precautionary principle, and what we should be doing to take care of ourselves and our neighbours going forward.
Please watch the video below to hear some thoughts about what we could be doing better, and to listen to audience questions.
