Canadian doctors call on government for a balanced response to COVID-19
The following is a letter was signed by current and former leaders of public health, health care systems, and academic institutions in Canada. Originally released last July 6, 2020, the letter has only recently gained worldwide attention when it was published on the website of Randy Hillier.
The letter states the current approaches being used to control the coronavirus will impact overall health and will increase inequities. It will affect lower income groups and will have life-long “consequences in terms of education, skills development, income and overall health”.
The signatories remind the government that Canadians have developed a real fear of COVID-19, and authorities must help citizens to understand their true risk from the disease. They also stress the need for the government to teach people how they can deal with the disease, while also allowing them to go “back to work, back to school, and back to healthy lives and vibrant, active communities”.
Editor’s Note: Doctors from many countries around the world are corroborating each other’s conclusions: lockdowns create more problems than they solve. They must now be lifted, and targeted responses must be applied so as to protect the vulnerable. Governments must now retract their fear-mongering approach if they will be able to usher their citizens back to normal, health, and vibrant communities. The science tells us this is the right and moral thing to do.
