Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: Oct. 2, 2020 | What’s next for Trump after COVID-19 diagnosis?” – below is their description.
In our top story tonight: Just 32 days before the presidential election, there is anxiety and uncertainty after the president was seen leaving the White House to head to Walter Reed Medical Center. The White House says it’s out of an abundance of caution, and his symptoms include a fever. It is having a cascading impact not just on his campaign, but on senior levels of government. Jackson Proskow reports on what his trip to the hospital could mean, and Dawna Friesen discusses who is next in line to the presidency should Trump’s condition deteriorate. Anyone who came into close contact with the president is at risk and that is a lot of people, given Trump’s public appearances in just the past week. As Jeff Semple reports, contact tracers have their work cut out for them. In Canada, COVID-19 is continuing to have its own worrying impact. Quebec saw more than 1,000 new cases, with Ontario breaking another record with 732 new cases. Quebec Premier François Legault is warning more restrictions could be coming, even as a partial lockdown is in place in three regions. Ontario is also introducing stricter measures, including a provincewide mask policy. Premier Doug Ford is telling people to keep their contacts tight. Abigail Bimman reports. The family of Joyce Echaquan say they intend to take legal action. As she lay in a Quebec hospital, she recorded video pleading for help – and on it, you can hear hospital staff insulting and demeaning her. On Friday, her husband said systemic racism contaminated that hospital and contributed to the death of his wife. Felicia Parrillo reports. An American man accused of smuggling people into Canada now claims he’s an informant for U.S. immigration officials. Canadian authorities charged the man with human smuggling last year and revelations from a separate U.S. court case appear to show American officials knew what he was up to for years. Paul Johnson explains. The year 2020 keeps delivering unexpected events. Even the American president has COVID-19; a man who often said the virus was just like the flu, has repeatedly said it is under control and was never a strong advocate of wearing a mask. Dawna Friesen explains why it should be a wake-up call.
