The Public Health Agency of Canada didn’t exactly cover itself in glory in the early days of the pandemic.Blacklock’s Reporter, citing a Jan. 29 briefing note from the agency, points out that Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam spent weeks telling the Canadian public masks were pointless and risky.“Do you recommend travelers wear masks while visiting China or quarantine-blocked cities within the country such as Wuhan? No,” said the briefing note. “It is not recommended that healthy travelers wear masks while visiting China or quarantine-blocked cities within the country.”Authorities in Wuhan ordered all residents to wear masks in public on Jan. 22 — a week before the briefing note was written.In Parliament Hill briefings, Tam repeatedly advised against wearing masks as unsafe even after China’s Centre for Disease Control called the precaution essential.Nearly half of Canadians aren't keen on wearing masks: StudyMasks mandatory in public indoor spaces in Toronto starting July 7On March 27, the Centre’s Director General George Fu Gao told the periodical Science: “The biggest mistake in the U.S. and Europe in my opinion is that people aren’t wearing masks.”“You’ve got to wear a mask,” Gao said. “Many people have asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic infections. If they are wearing face masks, it can prevent droplets that carry the virus from escaping and infecting others.”Yet records show Tam went so far as to warn Canadians that mask wearing “can actually lead to infections.”It wasn’t until April 22nd that the Public Health Agency finally changed course and recommended Canadians wear non-surgical masks to protect themselves and others.That directive came two days after Cabinet issued its first mandatory mask order allowing airlines to refuse service to anyone not wearing a mask.CommentsShare your thoughtsCanada China coronavirus Public Health
