Canada's Preparation for and Response to COVID-19

Canada's Preparation for and Response to COVID-19

Kumanan Wilson

Le projet consiste à évaluer l’état de préparation et la réponse du Canada face au virus COVID-19. Plus particulièrement, le Dr Wilson veut savoir dans quelle mesure le Canada s’est conformé au Règlement sanitaire international. Le Règlement sanitaire international est un accord signé par 196 pays qui s’engagent à collaborer au profit de la sécurité sanitaire mondiale. Le Règlement a été élaboré en tenant compte de la réponse européenne au choléra au 19e siècle, et a été étendu et actualisé en 2005 en réponse au SRAS. Les signataires ont convenu de renforcer leur capacité à détecter, évaluer et signaler les événements de santé publique.

Passeport vaccinal - Questions juridiques et politiques

Passeport vaccinal - Questions juridiques et politiques

Colleen Flood

Les passeports/certificats de vaccin COVID-19 sont déployés dans différents contextes à travers le monde. Mais l'incertitude quant à l'éthique et à la légalité de leur utilisation continue de perturber le public et les décideurs, le Canada ne faisant pas exception. Ce projet a pour but d'enquêter et de donner des conseils sur les questions juridiques et politiques concernant la raison d'être et la conception des passeports vaccinaux, le rôle approprié du gouvernement dans leur réglementation, et les préoccupations persistantes concernant la vie privée, l'équité, la liberté, et la coercition.

L'Institut norvégien de santé publique propose « une carte en direct des preuves de COVID-19 », comprenant des cartes thématiques permettant de suivre les preuves émergentes sur (par exemple) le pronostic, la prévention des infections et l'étiologie.

Le chapitre du professeur Craig Forcese de l'Université d'Ottawa et de Leah West sur les situations d'urgence est une bonne introduction au droit canadien et international dans ce domaine. Disponible en libre accès sur le site du SSRN. Le professeur Craig Forcese dispose également d'un site web, INTREPID, qui suit les ordres d'urgence COVID-19 par province.

Le site web Our World in Data, dirigé par l'économiste Max Roser, est une excellente ressource pour les données actuelles.
