Negativity seems to be the only thing we hear from media and public officials about the virus: An endless narrative of more fear, more warnings and more waves. Throughout the pandemic, Canada has acted entirely out of proportion to the problem. And now we’re being warned that, with the Delta variant, the worst may still be to come, while rare “breakthrough” infections are played up for scary headlines. Infectious disease specialist Martha Fulford joins Anthony to discuss why it’s time to accept that the vaccines have defanged the virus, to stop being terrified, and to move on with our lives. (Recorded July 21, 2021.)
