Libby Znaimer is joined by Dr. Nathan Stall of Geriatrics and Internal Medicine at Sinai Health and Dr. Michel Larivière, Clinical Psychologist and Professor at Laurentian University.
Yesterday, Ontario Premier Doug Ford declared a province-wide state of emergency amid the threat of COVID-19.
While we are learning more and more about the physical symptoms and threats that this virus poses, there is, of course, a growing sense of fear surrounding it as well, especially when you hear terms like ‘pandemic’ to classify the health crisis and government officials declaring emergencies.
Dr. Larivière provides perspective on the psychological impacts that the virus poses on the Canadian public and what we can do to help quell the nerves. Dr. Stall provides us with tips to help minimize the risks.
