19 is here to stay watching global national some public health and infectious disease experts are pressing for provincial and federal governments to shift in minimising not eradicating kovat 19 to basically accept

This disease will be with us for a long time joining us to talk about that is dr Vivek Gowell former president of public health Ontario dr GU Lu have said that aiming to prevent or contain every case of covin 19 is simply no

Longer sustainable why not well once we got to the stage that we did back in March with widespread community transmission the WHL when it declared the pandemic they said it's time to move from containment which is a strategy of

Eliminating disease to mitigation that is reducing the impact and the effects of the disease but we allow society to get on as much as possible and the other reason why containment is no longer an effective strategy for us is what's

Happening everywhere else in the world so if you think of small island countries like Iceland New Zealand have pursued a containment strategy have strict border controls we're not in the same sort of situation we're next to a

Country that is not containing the disease we rely on that country for critical supply chains and even with the border controls that we have we will continue to have imported cases so to go after a strategy where we try to

Eliminate every case would mean not only keeping our economy shut down but putting a virtual seal around our borders like some of those other countries have done which is not sustainable for Canada would it be

Foolish to jeopardize the progress Canada has made up to this point by opening the border I certainly would not be recommending lifting them at the present time with what's going on right now but we need to start thinking about

What we're going to do in the future as the United States and then the states that are hardest hit right now start to bring things under control and we need to think about risk-based approach to opening up our

Border so rather than saying Canadians should avoid non-essential travel to all countries of the world which is the current recommendation start to look like at what countries or regions like the EU have done where they have

Identified countries that don't have community transmission and are lifting the quarantine requirement and in fact they've lifted the quarantine requirement for Canada because they see Canada's having managed the outbreak but

Canada has not lifted the quarantine requirement for residents of the EU you've indicated the current approach to dealing with kovat 19 carries significant risk to overall population health what do you mean by that the

Restrictions have also had an impact on the healthcare system itself we have people who have had their procedures cancelled we have people that have had medical visits canceled and as a result of that they're going to be suffering

Consequences we have a decrease in emergency department visits have been reporting United States for a heart attack for stroke for diabetes complications those people are going to have consequences we have all of the

Impact on children the early childhood development is one of the strongest predictors of lifelong health we have increases in domestic violence we have food and security we have increases in drug and alcohol use all of these things

Over the longer term will have an impact on health and then the unemployment itself leads to increased health consequences so I think the critical thing to remember is that the public health measures themselves have

Consequences dr Koh well thank you for your time up next no Olympics no problem how to run a global race in the pan demmick in an ideal time the Tokyo Olympic Games

Mike Armstrong explains how one unique event in Switzerland pulled off a worldwide race hello and welcome to the Vell classes Eric inspiration games in a normal year this event would have 25,000 people packed into the stands with Kovac

Around the world in the women's 100 meters competitors stepped up to the blocks in California Florida and Switzerland that you can see that slight headwind in Zurich the runners actually raced with no one beside them making it

A little rough on the announcer hard to tell who's gonna get to the line first the racers ran simultaneously then editors stitched the whole thing together in a matter of minutes so it seemed like one race it's gonna be very

Tight and deep no the results were probably less important than the fact the competition took place at all with amateur events around the world canceled this summer some might have trouble ever coming back and okay

Pole vault this event might have been a little gimmicky but at least it gave Zurich organizers some you go missing a year think of the damage that could be done to what minimal branding they already have it is when the event wasn't

Really a model going forward you can't have some competitors and sunny climates against others dealing with wind and rain but there weren't many competitors complaining canada's Andre de Grasse won his event he says it was just nice to be

In a facility that was actually open yeah I mean it's been really tough I mean you know the past couple months you know we only been training like two to three days a week oh well we've been trying to bounce from you know track the

Track getting kicked off here and there no Lyle's in California sorry in Florida excuse me there was one snafu in the men's 200 meters it appeared a runner had beaten
