But What About the Syphilis?
Alberta's medical officer of health, Dr. Dina Hinshaw, thinks she's getting a bad rap for dismantling the province's Covid-19 public health effort.She says lifting isolation requirements, asymptomatic testing and eliminating contact tracing will support the whole health of Albertans, by allowing the province to focus on other health threats, such as opioid deaths and syphilis.
She says isolation measures were incredibly disruptive and are no longer necessary with vaccine protection.
Wait a second. How rampant is syphilis in Alberta? Do we really want a bunch of poxed-up tourists flocking to our coast?
And, Dina, you can chew gum and walk straight at the same time. All it takes is a bit of practice. Give it a try.
