Canadians divided over making COVID-19 vaccine mandatory: Poll – While researchers across the planet race to find a vaccine for COVID-19, a new poll suggests Canadians are divided over whether getting it should be mandatory or voluntary — setting up a potentially prickly public health debate if a vaccine becomes available. The federal government has committed tens of millions of dollars to help find or create a vaccine for the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, the respiratory illness that has infected at least 48,000 Canadians and killed more than 2,700. Yet the poll conducted by Leger and the Association for Canadian Studies found that while 60 per cent of respondents believe people should be required to get the vaccine once it is ready, the other 40 per cent think it should be voluntary.”

Canada’s top doctor warns against relying on herd immunity to reopen economy – Quebec’s premier has touted the method as a way to get his province back to work – “Passports may become necessary, doctor says – For Dr. Kumanan Wilson, a physician at the Ottawa Hospital and innovation adviser at the Bruyère Research Institute, immunity passports will be key to returning to society if the science is there to support it. Wilson is hoping to partner with the federal government to launch a digital identification system that shows who is protected from the virus should immunity tests become available. ‘It is possible that the science doesn’t demonstrate that you do develop long-lasting immunity, in which case [passports] would not be an appropriate way to proceed,’ Wilson said. ‘But if the science does demonstrate that this is a good solution, it will be important to have a technological solution in place.’ Wilson has proposed a system that would arm Canadians, or people around the world, with a digital record of their level of protection, which would be scanned to enter workplaces, sports stadiums and airports. He acknowledged that classifying people based on protection status could lead to other concerns, such as some citizens having better access to immunity tests than others, or those compelled to falsify their status to re-enter society.” – Includes radio interview

Too early to discuss ‘immunity passports’ for COVID-19 recoveries, Trudeau says – “But Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, warned against that approach Saturday. She said the federal government has put in place an immunity task force that will investigate how people’s immune systems are responding to COVID-19. She said that since many Canadians have followed physical distancing orders, the percentage of the immunized population is “quite low.” And despite evidence that the virus is particularly dangerous to older people and those with underlying health conditions, younger people are still at risk. ‘So the idea of generating natural immunity is actually not something that I think should be undertaken,” she said. “I personally think that as medical officers, we would be extremely cautious about that kind of approach.'”

Ottawa announces $1.1B in new funding for the fight against the coronavirus – “Ottawa is spending an additional $1.1 billion for a national medical and research strategy in the fight against the coronavirus. The money will be allocated to three pillars which include research on vaccines and other treatments, support for clinical trials, and expanding national testing and modelling. Hospitals and universities get $115 million for vaccine and treatment research. Clinical trial funding for vaccines is $662 million. ‘A vaccine is the long-term solution to this virus,’ said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during his daily COVID-19 address.”
‘Significant’ coronavirus mutation discovered, could make vaccine search ‘futile,’ study says – “Researchers have discovered what they described as a ‘significant’ mutation of the novel coronavirus, which they believe ‘raises the alarm’ that the search for a vaccine could become “futile” down the line.

The worse thing Quebec could do is allow everyone out from confinement in bulk in September, he said. The idea is to go slowly and let people less at risk develop antibodies. ‘If we did a big poll or a referendum, I doubt Quebecers would feel like (staying confined) for two years because it could be that long before we have a vaccine,’ Legault said. ‘So we need natural immunization, but gradually … at the same time as protecting the most vulnerable.’”
Doctors provide differing opinion on shelter-in-place order, say county should reopen – “Now, two doctors in Kern County are sharing a differing opinion.

They say the longer people stay inside, the more their immune system drops. They’re calling for Kern County to reopen immediately. ‘If you have no symptoms, you should be able to return to work,’ Erickson said Wednesday. ‘Are you an asymptomatic viral shedder? Maybe. But we can’t test all of humanity … the major events, the sporting events, these are nonessential. Let’s get back to those slowly. Let’s start with schools.'”
