Plan:

“Prove you had Covid by presenting the results of the testing we cancelled.”

I hope they're as good as the long COVID prevention plans have been! 🙄

Why do I think their strategy was to intentionally increase long covid numbers... and now they'll let their CEO buddies put something in place to make money off it? Why do long term care homes and privatized health care come to mind? I wonder why? 🤔🤨 #onpoli

Has the Gov't done a study to determine how many people with long Covid are vaccinated?

This will just be another nonsensical bunch of b.s. about how there is "No Covid" There will be no "plan" The only "plan" is to go into mass denial. I wouldn't trust this guy to mow my lawn, let alone guide this province in a pandemic.

The prevalence of long COVID in the population may be anywhere from two to 54 per cent, depending on how the condition is defined, the science table said.

Quite the wide range there. These experts are no experts at all.

Gotta love this guy. There is no plan because there is no cure. You let it rip knowing that. Now you're letting kids sick with COVID go to school. https://t.co/​LnmHwwwwBd

Hey Dr. Moore. It took less than two weeks since you ended mandatory isolation for my mother-in-law in LTC to test positive for Covid for the second time. The first time she spent five weeks in the hospital and never walked or spoke again. Does that count as long covid?

Nah, this is just where they brag about how much they're gonna save while you all get sick and some of you die. Unless somehow there's additional ways they can bilk more cash away from you and your families.

Long Covid strategy should begin with preventing Covid infections. Its the cheapest and easiest fix to the problem of Long Covid there is.
