گزارش از مقابله با کرونا در کانادا، ۲۶ مارس




سراسر - جاستین ترودو ، نخست وزیر پنجشنبه در محوطه بیرونی منزل خود با اشاره به کسانی که قرنطینه دو هفته ای را نادیده می گیرند، بی توجهی آنها را "ناامید کننده" و "خطرناک" توصیف کرد و گفت: " قانون قرنطینه برای ایمن نگه داشتن همه کانادایی ها است".

ترودو در پاسخ به این سوال که چرا تمهیدات جدید برای قرنطینه زودتر به مورد اجرا گذارده نشد گفت که اکثریت قریب به اتفاق کانادایی ها دستورالعمل های بهداشت عمومی را رعایت کرده اند و اقدامات احتیاطی لازم برای محافظت از خود و دیگران را انجام می دهند. اما افراد زیادی هم به این موضوع بی توجهی می کنند و از همین رو اعمال اقدامات اجرایی با پشتوانه قانونی لزوم یافته است.

ترودو تاکید کرد كه برای دولت وی ، رئیس ارشد بهداشت عمومی دکتر ترزا تام و نخست وزیران این كشور پرواضح بوده كه مردم هنگام ورود به كانادا نیاز به قرنطینه ۱۴ روزه دارند. وی گفت: اما با توجه به اینکه برخی از مسافران موضوع قرنطینه را جدی نگرفتند ، اقدامات سختگیرانه تری لازم بود.

اطلاعات تماس از مسافران ورودی هنگام عبور از مرز برای پیگیری های آتی جمع آوری می شود ، که می تواند با بازرسی های رندوم برای اطمینان از صحت اجرای قرنطینه همراه باشد.




ترزا تام روز پنجشنبه در جمع بندی مطالب اظهار داشت: هر مسافری که مبتلا به بیماری باشد بلافاصله جدا خواهد شد. افرادی که به شدت بیمار هستند به بیمارستان اعزام می شوند و افرادی که علائم کمتری دارند و قادرند بدون ایجاد خطر به خانه خود بروند ، مجاز به انجام این کار خواهند بود.

تام در با اشاره به درصدهای شدت بیماری کووید ۱۹ در کانادا گفت که تقریبا شش درصد موارد مبتلا نیاز به بستری شدن در بیمارستان پیدا میکنند، ۲/۶ درصد به وضعیت وخیم می رسند و یک درصد از دنیا می روند.

وی گفت: "این واقعیت که میزان مرگ و میر کانادا در حد یک درصد است نشان می دهد که سیستم مراقبت های بهداشتی در حال حاضر تحت فشار قرار نگرفته است ، اما می توان با جلوگیری از انتقال بیماری به اقشار آسیب پذیر جمعیت ، این تلفات را کاهش داد."


Travellers returning to Canada from abroad are facing a new order requiring them to self-isolate, the latest measure from a government trying to deal with both a rise in COVID-19 cases and the growing economic fallout. According to CBC The measure, which makes some exceptions for health-care workers and truckers, allows for fines and even jail times for people who ignore the order to stay home. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) said on Twitter that people coming into Canada at ports of entry will be asked to make a declaration. "We are implementing the Quarantine Act to keep all Canadians safe," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday, calling decisions by some to ignore the call to self-isolate for two weeks "disappointing" and "dangerous." When asked why the quarantine measure wasn't introduced sooner, Trudeau said "the vast majority" of Canadians have been following public health guidelines and taking the precautions necessary to protect themselves and others. But, he said, "there have been too many people who have not," which required the use of a rule with enforcement measures. Speaking outside his home at Rideau Cottage on Thursday, Trudeau said his government, chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam and the country's premiers had all been clear that people needed to follow the call for a 14-day quarantine when entering Canada. But given that some travellers were not self-isolating, tougher measures were needed, he said. Contact information will be collected from incoming travellers when they pass through the border for followup, which could include random checks to ensure they are complying with the quarantine. 'Go home and stay home.' But also exercise. How do we do that? Why Canada's COVID-19 'war-time' response could be derailed by a swab on a stick Tam said at a briefing Thursday that any incoming traveller who is sick will be immediately isolated. People who are seriously ill will be sent to hospital and those with less severe symptoms who can safely go directly home are allowed to do so. "A quarantine order is put on them; we of course follow them in collaboration with local public health." People with symptoms who can't get home will be housed in a location serving as a federal quarantine, Tam said. People who are asymptomatic are allowed to go home with an order to get there "as fast as possible" and stay put. The government will do random checks on the asymptomatic people, in collaboration with local public health, through measures like phone calls, Tam said. She said the use of the Quarantine Act is a "serious reminder" of the need for self-isolation for returning travellers — and reiterated the possibility of "hefty penalties," including fines and even jail time. During the same briefing, Tam provided what she called "a snapshot of the severity" of COVID-19 in Canada. She said roughly six per cent of cases require hospitalization, 2.6 per cent are critical and one per cent are fatal. "The fact that Canada's fatality rate is at one per cent indicates that the health-care system is not currently overwhelmed, but these fatalities could be reduced further by preventing illness in our most vulnerable populations," she said.
