Muhammad Ali Bukhari, CNMNG News, Toronto

The role of ‘PSW’ or personal support workers as frontline workers in Western society is quite important. As they are engaged in the care of critically ill patients in care centers and hospitals, and they are also engaged in other community care homes, privately owned homes and government-funded long-term nursing homes. At the same time, they not only set a unique example of service but also dedicate themselves to the daily well-being of their patients. According to the Personal Support Worker HQ website, the average life expectancy in long-term care centers in Canada is 87.2 years, and many of them suffer from mental disabilities, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia. As a result, their great sacrifice is unforgettable. This example is reflected during the Corona pandemic everywhere in Canada, even in other countries. (more…)

Yesterday – added Trudeau – the first supply of the vaccine arrived in our country with about half a million doses, which will be immediately distributed to the province and territories. “In addition to this,” he continued, “we are waiting to have a response from Health Canada on another vaccine, the one produced by Johnson and Johnson.” The latter, which in the United States has been able to give the green light by the regulator, could represent the turning point in this problematic immunization campaign against Covid-19, as a difference of all the other approved vaccines in Canada – Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca – to be effective needs a single dose and does not require recall injection.
