Michael Hurley says : “The province must be held responsible for this ill-fated decision and other practices that discriminate based on age. The government was focused on reducing hospital occupancy because it knew its under-funding meant hospitals lack capacity and cannot deal with surges. The government’s decision to move hospital patients into LTC, and the decision to keep sick LTC residents out of hospital, led to crowded long-term care homes where the respiratory virus ran rampant, killing thousands. Even after this disaster the government continues on a course to cut hospital capacity even more,” External link

Michael Hurley says : “Now they must apply this recognition of airborne transmission to policy especially in high-risk environments like long-term care homes and hospitals. The cruel irony here is that the Ontario government denies, to its health care workforce and to the general public that COVID-19 is transmitted through the air, outside of certain aerosolizing procedures, but invest in technology to sense COVID-19 transmission through air. It’s time the province change its transmission guidelines,” External link

The government was focused on reducing hospital occupancy because it knew its under-funding meant hospitals lack capacity and cannot deal with surges.
