In some parts of Canada—especially Ontario—hospitals are close to the breaking point. At the same time, tests are finding a variant of Covid-19 that may spread much faster than the usual virus. How worried should we be about what this means for the next several weeks?

GUEST: Dr. David Fisman, epidemiologist, Dalla Lana School of Public Health
