DAY 39 - The COVID-19 Daily Podcast with Dave Trafford


This is DAY 39   of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s what you need to know on Saturday, April 18, 2020   <<<<>>>  The focus for governments across Canada is how best to safely transition from the current pandemic restrictions to something that resembles something closer to daily routines that take us out doors and into the office. We’ll talk about how the federal government and provincial premiers are managing that square dance…coming up in the podcast. We told you earlier this week that Associated Press was reporting that Chinese government officials failed to warn the world about the coronavirus for 6 critical days in January. <>  In the meantime, the COVID-19 curve is at various stages in provinces across Canada. The most encouraging situation is in British Columbia where public health officials say they’re close to flattening the curve and Rick Westhead says that means British Columbians are looking forward to a good walk spoiled. <>  How are the provinces and the federal government getting along during this pandemic? We put the question to our roundtable that includes John Wright, Partner at Dart Insights and Communications, and Keith Leslie, Politcal Commentator at CH Television and Newstalk1010 radio. <<>> IF YOU HAVE A STORY ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE YOU WANT TO SHARE…send me an email.
