In a news conference on Parliament Hill, Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller provides an update on the federal government’s response to COVID-19 (coronavirus disease), focusing on the pandemic’s impact on Indigenous communities in Canada. He also responds to questions about systemic racism in the health-care system. The update comes as the federal government begins two days of virtual meetings with Indigenous leaders, provincial and territorial health ministers, and health experts aimed at addressing the issue. The minister is joined by Valerie Gideon (the senior assistant deputy minister for the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch of Indigenous Services Canada) and Dr. Tom Wong (the chief medical officer of public health for Indigenous Services Canada).
