Why did the homeless and marginalized population in Toronto manage so well during the COVID pandemic? Government & public health had no interest in them, yet they managed; McCullough zooms in!

by Paul Alexander

n=736 homeless; majority managed through the illness with no reported difficulty over the time period, most with the Omicron variants; no reported severe cases, hospitalizations, or deaths

Here is the key question and McCullough is correct:

if the highest risk derive no reduction in hospitalization or death, then even lower risk individuals are not worth the effort for public health interventions such as vaccines.
