In this episode, I’m talking with Dr. Robert Strang about the decision-making that resulted in Nova Scotia entering its first lockdown at the beginning of the Covid pandemic.
Rob is the Chief Medical Officer of Health for the province of Nova Scotia.
The tough calls that our leading health officials have had to make in the face of this pandemic have been staggering. Especially, in the early days of the outbreak, these decisions needed to be made quickly and with incomplete information. Even more challenging, they needed to be implemented within structures that are classically very slow to act.
And all of this is taking place in an environment where the stakes are literally life and death.
