Canada’s top doctors plan for more a social fall, dashing hopes for summer

Global News published this video item, entitled “Canada’s top doctors plan for more a social fall, dashing hopes for summer” – below is their description.

As the U.S. starts edging back to normalcy by ditching face mask usage for fully vaccinated people indoors, Canada hasn’t reached that point yet.

In the first official glimpse of what life in Canada could be like in the months to come, the Public Health Agency of Canada released potential scenarios for the spring, summer and fall.

Federal Health Minister Patty Hajdu called it a “roadmap” that will help provinces and territories decide next steps as the national vaccination campaign continues to ramp up.

By summer, as millions more vaccines funnel into the country, there’s a chance for restrictions to lift but there’s a caveat — 75 per cent of those eligible for vaccines need to have one dose, and 20 per cent need a second.

“These are modelling projections about what could happen,” said Canada’s top doctor, Theresa Tam. “I think having an aspirational target is really a good thing for everyone to aim for.

Abigail Bimman explains how many people have to be immunized before restrictions could be eased, and when that might happen.
