Toronto hospital says protests are 'demoralizing' for staff

hospital protest

A crowd of protesters gathered this afternoon outside Toronto General Hospital to denounce COVID-19 measures.

A dozen or so police officers were also present during the rally.

Similar protests planned outside several hospitals across Canada today.

University Health Network, which runs Toronto General Hospital, says the event is demoralizing for health-care staff who have taken risks caring for patients with COVID-19.
