(February 24, 2021) – David Brazil, PC Candidate for Conception Bay East-Bell Island, says the Liberals must provide full disclosure of how COVID-19 is affecting the healthcare system to ensure public safety, especially when it comes to St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital.

“COVID-19 in our healthcare system is very dangerous. Not only are frontline workers more at risk, but vulnerable patients risk exposure to the virus. We need as much information as possible to ensure healthcare workers and patients are protected,” said Brazil.

On Tuesday, CBC reported two patients had contracted the virus at St. Clare’s Hospital, but Eastern Health did not provide details of the situation when pressed by the outlet. Brazil says that’s concerning.

“People need confidence that the healthcare system is working to protect them in their time of need. This isn’t about laying blame and pointing fingers - it’s about assuring the public their next trip to the hospital is safe,” said Brazil.

“The Liberals must tell us what’s happening for the benefit of the entire province."
