ABSTRACT

Report 6: Three Areas in Which Pandemic Management Could Have Been Better   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The purpose of this retrospection is not to be unduly critical. Certainly, members of Canada's political class should on balance receive at least a passing grade for their management of the pandemic. [...] [M]y goal is to understand whether different courses of action were possible at three key policy junctures. From the perspective of what citizens would consent to or agree to, at least, it does seem possible that other policy paths could have been taken. I look at three different sets of policy choices in particular. First, I examine the application of lockdowns, in particular the trade off of locking-down various essential and non-essential services in exchange for keeping schools open. Second, I look at the use of technology-based tracking and tracing to enable smarter lockdowns. Third, I consider the prioritization of vaccine roll outs."
