Description

Across the country, declining rates of COVID-19 infections have led to cautious plans to relax physical distancing and gradually open up businesses. This week on White Coat, Black Art, Dr. Patricia Daly, Vice President of Public Health and Chief Medical Health Officer for Vancouver Coastal Health, talks to Dr. Goldman about what’s working in British Columbia, and how it might help the rest of the country.
Dr. Andrew Boozary, Executive Director of Health and Social Policy at University Health Network talks about long-standing issues we need to deal with to protect vulnerable people as we move towards opening up. He says COVID-19 has "ripped back the curtain" on inequities in our country that have led to poor outcomes for people who live in poverty, are homeless and who experience racism. Dr Boozary says it's crucial that Canada collect more data on how the virus has impacted those communities so we can be better prepared to protect them now and in the future.
