Canada, the US and COVID-19 as seen by a nurse
Jessica L’Abbe’ is a registered nurse who lives and works in Edmonton, Alberta, in Canada. I know her only from social media, where I have been appreciating her perspectives and knowledge, especially now, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We spoke on April 29th, 2020, by Skype. We talked about US / Canadian differences in health care, governance and the culture at large. She also had some very astute observations to make about media, not only regarding its messaging but also its nature. In general, I find it refreshing to converse with someone who is not a US American, and Jessica was no exception.
