True, but Canada doesn't have much to brag about. I participated in pandemic planning after SARS in 2003, and sadly a number of lessons learned were either forgotten about or implementation was botched. For example, 50 million N95 masks were stockpiled, but some genius decided it was cheaper to stick them in a warehouse than to constantly take regular requirements out of the stockpile and replenish. Then they were destroyed because they were date expired, but not replaced. So when they were needed, there was no stockpile.The problem with the spread is politically driven, i.e. agenda driven. The reason for that is "you know who". The opinions of experts doesn't matter, so what does that tell you?
I get a headache sometimes listening to Dr. Theresa Tam because she was a leader of the task force 15 years ago and seems to forget what it recommended.
