Today, Dr. Oommen and Dr. Di Liello continue the discussion on the COVID-19 Pandemic, but would first like to address another significant issue in our community.
The ongoing events are weighing heavily on the hearts of our team, and we know that silence is not the answer. There is no space for racism and violence.
As a medical clinic, we wish for everyone’s well-being as we continue to fight against injustice as safely as possible. For those partaking in the protests, we highly encourage the use of masks, gloves and social distancing as means to protect yourself and your peers as you work together towards a better world. Fortunately, we live in a time where every single one of us has a voice through social media and great things can still be achieved even while socially distanced.
In this segment, the Doctors also address the loosening of the government’s restrictions on social gatherings and as Dr. Oommen puts it, the decreasing of confinement simply means that we must increase our guard. We are still in the midst of a global health crisis and we urge everyone to continue your coronavirus safety practices more than ever to avoid prolonging and worsening the spread of COVID-19.
As Canadians, we cannot neglect that we also have a long way to go, and we must look into what we can actively do to help on our end. We encourage you all to continue to educate yourselves and others on racism and continue to spread awareness and change.
Stay safe everyone, and thank you for those who are actively paving the way to a better and more just world.
