March 20, 2020
Canada’s chief public health officer is again urging everyone to practice proper prevention methods to contain any spread of COVID-19.
Dr. Theresa Tam suggests with confirmed cases growing every day, there is a need to try to stem that growth as soon as possible.
“We don’t just need to flatten the curve, we need to plank it,” said Tam when discussing the progression of the illness.
“We need everyone from government to communities, families, and individuals to work together. We all have got to get it right and get it right right now.”
Tam is also reminding us not to forget about our Indigenous people during the coronavirus crisis.
