Racism concerns in New Brunswick rise after doctor blamed for COVID-19 outbreak

Global News published this video item, entitled “Racism concerns in New Brunswick rise after doctor blamed for COVID-19 outbreak” – below is their description.

In New Brunswick, there are concerns a controversy is causing medical professionals to leave the province. Dr. Jean-Robert Ngola says he was wrongly blamed for causing a COVID-19 outbreak in the spring of 2020 and has now launched a lawsuit. He is now suing the New Brunswick government, the RCMP and Facebook – alleging he was falsely-scapegoated, after providing health-care in Campbellton for seven years.

More than 600 doctors across Canada also wrote a letter to New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs, asking him to apologize for his part in two investigations of Ngola, both of which were dropped.

Ross Lord looks at the growing uproar over the claims made against Dr. Ngola and why some people believe those claims could undermine the province’s immigration efforts.
