Dr. Corinne Hohl gave a presentation to the PAC at the 27 October 2020 meeting
She is an emergency room physician, epidemiologist, is involved with Canada’s national COVID registry, and the parent of a student in grade 8 at Kits. She reviewed the latest data and information about the severity of the disease and transmission risks amongst high school-aged children in BC, Canada, and internationally. This was the collective work of several medical doctors and researchers. You can find a video of her presentation (which she gave to Prince of Wales PAC the following week) here: https://youtu.be/4ePETzVNGdA
