. Federal health agency wasn’t ready for pandemic « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CBC – The Public Health Agency of Canada was not adequately prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic because it ignored internal audits that found serious gaps in the National Emergency Strategic Stockpile (NESS), Canada’s auditor general reported today.

Auditor General Karen Hogan said the health agency’s management failed to address “long-standing issues” in how personal protective equipment (PPE) and other medical devices were managed in the NESS, which was created in part to supply provinces and territories with crucial goods during a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic.
