'Collateral damage': Wait times, cancellations hit health care outside of COVID-19
from Global News
The coronavirus outbreak in Canada has led to an all-hands-on-deck scenario in health care, leaving some doctors worried about those who need other kinds of care. The World Health Organization made it clear Monday that while COVID-19 has the spotlight, other “essential health services must continue.” “Babies are still being born. Vaccines must still be delivered. People still need life-saving treatment for a range of other diseases,” the WHO said. For COVID-19, the directions are clear: Canadians should stay home, self-monitor for symptoms, and self-isolate for 14 days if they’ve travelled outside of the country.
