The media and some politicians are once again focussing on case numbers when dealing with COVID-19, despite the fact that public health officials believe hospitalizations and ICU capacity is more important to focus on.

If the focus is on case numbers again, it’s important to keep things in perspective.

Anthony Furey discusses.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
