Tam threatens more medical tyranny next fall
Globe & Mail: 'Weekly case counts are down by 26 per cent nationally, Tam said, and the number of people with COVID-19 in hospitals and intensive care units has declined by more than 20 per cent since last week. There are still 6,228 new cases in Canada as of Feb. 24 and that figure is an underestimate, since many jurisdictions have restricted molecular tests to people at a high-risk.
'Tam said it is possible things could change again in September, when respiratory viruses typically resurge.
'“We need to be ready for the fall, in case we need to up our game again,” she said.
But the goal, she says, will this time be to limit stiff restrictions in favour of “less heavy” measures such as mask mandates.'
