Statement by Official Opposition Health Critic Vicki Mowat Tuesday, April 13, 2021

The statement reads as follows:

"Scott Moe saw the modelling and knew the variants were on the rise. Instead of acting to win the race between the vaccines and the variants, he gave the variants a head-start. Just like in November, we are seeing a Premier unwilling to take serious steps when they are needed.

Many parts of Saskatchewan have far higher case counts than Regina did when this government applied the current restrictions to the city, yet today’s measures are not as diligent as those originally applied to Regina. This lack of consistency is causing confusion across the province.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the numbers and forget there are real people, real Saskatchewan families dealing with illness and the loss of lives attached to those numbers.

These variants are highly contagious and far more harmful than the original COVID-strain. The facts on the ground are changing daily. We need to be nimble and proactive in combatting this virus, not sit around and give it a head-start while we wait for the government’s Tuesday media events."
