Libby Znaimer is joined by Dr. Iris Gorfinkel, a family physician based in Toronto.
The fast-moving pandemic has made a lot of people change their minds about the threat it poses and how to deal with it. One of those people is Dr. Iris Gorfinkel, a frequent contributor to this show. When we first started preparing for COVID-19 she downplayed the danger and ended up taking a lot of flack on social media with tweets like this one: “In January this [doctor] was saying coronavirus is nothing to worry about. All hype”. Dr. Gorfinkel acknowledges that she was wrong about that and her ideas have changed significantly. She joins me now. Also, Ottawa says that the World Health Organization should carry out a post-pandemic investigation into how it handled the COVID-19 health crisis. Libby and Dr. Gorfinkel discuss the latest.
