The COVID-19 pandemic has had significant consequences on the health and well-being of Canadians. From death and disability to loss of employment and financial insecurity, the immediate impacts of the virus have been widely known and understood by Canadians. However, the evidence of non-COVID related harms is gradually emerging and causing concern among health care professionals and those in social services.
Join Canada 2020 for a conversation on the secondary effects of public health interventions against COVID-19, how they continue to impact the health and wellbeing of Canadians, and why they must not be ignored.
