As Canada endures the third wave of COVID-19, a virus that has already claimed tens of thousands of lives within our borders, a World Health Organization adviser has a message for Canadians: “Dawn is coming.”
Dr. Peter Singer’s comments come on the heels of soaring COVID-19 case counts in Canada, which peaked at over 9,000 daily infections in mid-April. Ontario in particular has faced a crushing third wave, with record-breaking daily cases and intensive care units stretched to their limits.
“It’s the darkness before dawn. There’s really no question that the situation in Canada is very tough. And many, many people are suffering,” Singer, special advisor to the Director-General of the WHO, told The West Block‘s Mercedes Stephenson in an interview.
“This pandemic generally is the worst global public health crisis in one hundred years. So…it is a period of difficulty, but the dawn is coming.”
