Why not lift restriction now?

Re. IH CEO talks vax mandates (Castanet, Jan. 26)

According to CTV News on Dec 13, 2022, health-care networks in most provinces have axed vaccination requirements for its staff. Nova Scotia and B.C. are the remaining jurisdictions where the provincial governments mandate vaccinations for health-care workers.

So all other provinces realized that keeping out trained medical workers is actually worse than the potential problems the unvaccinated pose, but B.C.’s health minister says he won’t consider lifting the vaccine mandate.

That begs the question, how many B.C. (residents) died because of a lack of trained medical personnel?

Also, how many deaths can be attributed to a lack of open emergency rooms and how many died from a lack of in-time emergency responders?
