Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

Please walk a mile in my shoes @fordnation I’m not sure why you didn’t believe us weeks ago. Is it because I’m “just a community ER physician” in a hard hit area? You ignore us in #Scarborough. You ignore your own MPPs pleading for help. 1/
You ignore the fact that we have been transferring patients to Kingston, Peterborough, Orillia and Coburg for weeks. Now it’s Sick kids. You ignored our pleas for vaccine for months. We asked for an equitable approach yet our population is in dire need and our appts are full. 2/
You ignore our pleas for infrastructure funding when our ERs are too small for our population, when our buildings are old, when we don’t have enough negative pressure rooms or isolation rooms.

A closer look at #Scarborough that has seen a rather large jump in recent days. I can't see mention of a specific event in the media. Age range seems quite widespread although highest numbers concerningly in 70+ group. Image
Here it is against rest of North Yorkshire:
In rate terms this puts Scarborough in 10th place against all Local Authorities in England. In absolute terms it's 71st.

Sunday night #Scarborough bus story: Two women in hijabs sit across from each other. They look at each other. Finally they speak, quietly, shyly. After a few exchanges, tears start to flow and they become very excited, hugging and jumping up and down. >>
They are so excited, and they speak rapidly to their teenaged daughters. Who in turn cry with their mothers. There is a big commotion and everyone on the bus is curious. It takes a grandmother from a different culture at the back, who finally yells out, ‘What happened?’ >>
One of the daughters tries to explain to the bus. From what I gathered, the two women grew up with each other and were best friends in school. But were separated when one of the women’s mother married someone else and they moved away. The first woman wrote her friend letters. >>
