The deputy grand chief Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) says remote First Nation communities are trying hard to “prevent, prepare, and respond” to the COVID-19 pandemic, despite a lack of necessary resources.

“Although we have made great strides there is a huge huge lack of resources in our First Nation communities, our biggest worry of course is if COVID-19 were to make its way to the north we’d be in deep trouble,” said NAN deputy grand chief Derek Fox in an interview with CBC.
