April 2021 – Military Lens

In a previous issue of COVID Corner, we made the case for COVID being both a sprint and a marathon, but with no definitive finish line. We are now well into the third wave, with new variants accounting for a growing number of new cases and deaths. Someprovinces such as Ontario are once again looking to the military to help us through the latest spike. This follows the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) stepping in before to quell the outbreaks in Ontario and Quebec’s long term care homes in the first wave, and to provide support to Northern Indigenous communities in the second wave.
