#IPAC statement on the release of @UNHumanRights assessment of human rights concerns in the Uyghur Region.

The burden is now upon member states to ensure that formal legal determinations are pursued, including investigations into alleged genocide and crimes against humanity.
In spite of efforts by the PRC government to block, delay and smear the report, the assessment represents an important step towards accountability.

Far from being the final word, this represents the very beginning for states yet to voice concern in defence of the Uyghurs.

#BREAKING Sunday Times finds that @HSBC has continued to buy shares in subsidiaries of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC) *AFTER* the XPCC was sanctioned by @USTreasury in 2020. Featuring comment from #IPAC members 👇
🇺🇸 Co-Chair, Senator @marcorubio:

“HSBC is working around existing sanctions against entities engaged in genocide so it can buy shares in Xinjiang. This is another example of a company turning a blind eye to genocide and slavery just to turn a profit….
The United States needs to hold HSBC and others accountable for their actions.”

#BREAKING Matt Pottinger, Deputy @WHNSC Advisor tells European #IPAC Co-chairs:

“Leaders in both U.S. political parties and across the U.S. government are perplexed and stunned that the EU is moving towards a new investment treaty right on the eve of a new U.S. administration.”
“There is nowhere for bureaucrats in Brussels or Europe to hide. We can no longer kid ourselves that Beijing is on the verge of honouring labour rights, while it continues to build millions of square feet of factories for forced labour in Xinjiang.”
“The EU Commission’s haste to partner with Beijing despite its grotesque human rights abuses has removed a fig leaf. Some European officials and commentators liked to claim that the Trump Administration was an impediment to even deeper transatlantic cooperation. Now it is plain

Manitoba's Health Minister called out the "motivation" of >200 doctors who wrote an open letter calling for stronger action:…

Remember @CameronFriesen called care home deaths "unavoidable"—let me explain how when it comes to #LTC he hasn't "got this".

Let's review the escalating #COVID19 catastrophe in the province's care homes.

There are 14 active #LTC home outbreaks and 38 cumulative resident deaths. Today the @redcrosscanada was called into Parkview Place and Maples, the two hardest hit homes:…

Earlier this year, @LTCcovid published international examples of measures to prevent and manage #COVID19 outbreaks in residential care and nursing home settings:…

#Manitoba is failing miserably on almost every key measure.

1/ @SickKidsNews released guidance today about school reopening. Colleagues, mentors +caregiver advocates among co-authors. I was not involved in its development, and can appreciate concerns raised re: content and comprehensiveness. A few thoughts as peds + ID/IPAC physician:
@SickKidsNews 2/ This was a summary of current published evidence + #IPAC principles to consider w/school reopening, and would've benefited from ON-specific data - BUT we couldn't routinely test sx'ic kids for MONTHS unless they were admitted. Huge gap in knowledge of provincial epi.
@SickKidsNews 3/ Clinicians are trusted sources of knowledge + community partnership; we have a role in knowledge translation. Need scientists at table to dissect real-time data + model impact of strategies (screening/cohorting/shielding) to inform dynamic approach ie responsive to local epi.

I was asked by FB friends to share this post - thoughts on #covid19Canada from #IPAC and #frontlinemom. Breaking it down into a thread, recognizing the challenge to be timely and relevant (and brief?!) in this changing period... 1/n
There remains one constant guiding principle = WASH YOUR HANDS. My favourite message from impressive BC public health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry: "wash your hands like you just cut up a bunch of jalapeños and need to take your contacts out." Yes, yes, protect your eyeballs! (2/n)
Following this week's #WHO declaration of a pandemic (no change in pace of pandemic planning at CHEO) and the first cases of #COVID19 in #YOW (big change in pace!), I reflected on the questions that kept bubbling up. (3/n)
