N.L. Premier Comments as More Health-Care Workers Depart to Help Ontario

Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Andrew Furey speaks with reporters at an military hangar in St. John’s as a second volunteer team of health-care workers from the province depart to help Ontario in its fight against the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Art Rideout, a reconstructive surgeon at Eastern Health, and Michelle Murphy, a nurse in Eastern Health’s day surgery program, also speak with reporters. The team of three doctors and four nurses will be working in Brampton. A nine-member team left Newfoundland and Labrador on April 27 to help Toronto hospitals. That first team includes Dr. Allison Furey, an emergency physician and wife of the premier. (May 4, 2021) (no interpretation)
