By Jamie Gilcig: Where to we start? Coronovirus is scaring the world. With over 70,000 victims of the flu we are just learning about it.
For example when SARS hit it was discovered that drain pipes in apartment complexes played a role in the contagion spreading.
Moving victims to Bases like Trenton make sense, but to NAV CAN?
This is a virus that has hit medial staff heavily and appears to be highly contagious. It appears to have killed about 1 patient for every four that recover at this point.
All it takes is one oopsey and we will have a viral hot spot within an hour or so of Montreal and Ottawa. It’s also close to the US border.
NAV CAN in Cornwall is not a military facility. It is not, secure. And while I’m sure steps will be taken to make things safe it is not a military base.
The Eastern Ontario Health Unit has refused to answer basic questions for this newspaper. We asked their media person questions like:
How many isolation units are available in SD&G? We were refused any answers and told someone would call us from the unit. Someone never did.
The Canadian government owes the residents of this region some answers before they plop down contagious patients with a deadly virus. It really does. Especially as this virus is more deadly to seniors so far and this area has a high percentage of seniors living here.
And while it’s nice that the government of Canada is shipping off emergency supplies to help China, perhaps if they are going to plant potentially deadly patients in our backyards residents of Cornwall should be given some masks and supplies in case as well?
We will be updating this very important story.
