WHO-linked head of Canadian public health says COVID restrictions will be lifted only after 75% are vaccinated
by Celeste McGovern, LifeSite News:
WHO-connected Theresa Tam has a mysteriously hidden background and has been keeping Canada in lockstep with often wrong, contradictory, Gates- and CCP- controlled WHO policies.
OTTAWA, Ontario, May 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The strictest lockdown measures in North America were extended on Thursday as Ontario’s premier Doug Ford announced that “stay-at-home” rules will continue across the province until June 2.
Ontario schools, businesses, restaurants, and outdoor parks, including golf courses and tennis courts, have been closed, and citizens of the most populous province have been told not to leave their homes except for essential services since April 3.

Restrictions like these in various parts of Canada will only be lifted when 75% of Canadian adults have taken at least one dose of an experimental COVID vaccine and 20% have received two doses by mid-summer, said Theresa Tam, the head of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), though depression, anxiety, and unemployment have soared, and one in six businesses report that they are unlikely to survive these measures.
Restrictions will remain, even after vaccines
Even if 55% of adults get a first dose of the vaccine, that would result in the epidemic “resurging and overwhelming hospitals,” so lockdowns would remain in place, claimed Tam, presenting “modelling scenarios” of the future last month.
But even if three quarters of adults were vaccinated, Tam said she would still force Canadians to wear masks, practice social distancing, and isolate.
“At this point, restrictive measures could be gradually eased as long as adequate test, trace, isolate capacity and individual precautions are maintained,” she said.
U.S. dropping cases
The bar for freedom is extraordinarily high considering that in the United States, which has a surplus of vaccine and slumping demand, just 58.7% of adults over age 18 have received one COVID shot, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
At this much lower threshold, new COVID-positive case counts have nonetheless plummeted south of the border, the CDC reports. Even states that have eased or abandoned COVID restrictions altogether — including Texas, Mississippi and Georgia — show COVID infection and death rates dropping week on week, despite open businesses and absence of mask mandates.
COVID surges in vaccinated nations
Tam’s ultimatum is not supported by data from countries with strong uptake that are seeing COVID cases soar. The most vaccinated country in the world, Seychelles, an island in the Indian Ocean off Africa, with 62% of its population fully vaccinated, nonetheless saw new cases more than double recently, with 37% of infections occurring among those who have received two doses of a COVID vaccine.
Maldives is another island country where high vaccination status has not translated into COVID protection. There, 35% of the population has received two doses of the vaccine, but reported cases per 100,000 people spiked in the past five, seven and 14 days, nearly doubling.
