While governments and health organizations bicker over the use of the p-word, it’s becoming clearer every day that countries are struggling to contain CoVid-19. To most scientists, it now looks like a much wider spread is a matter of when, not if. Even in Canada.
David Fisman, who joined us last month to explain what epidemiologists look for in the early days of a virus, returns to talk us through the worrying turn CoVid-19 has taken. What’s likely to come in the next few days and weeks? And what can Canada—from the federal government to ordinary citizens—do to prepare for what now seems inevitable?
GUEST: Dr. David Fisman, epidemiologist, the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto
