    Fluvoxamine for COVID-19.

    Add it to the growing list of simple vitamins & treatments, like aspirin, which have been available since day one - then wonder why risky, experimental jabs were rolled out en masse with the largest, global propaganda campaign in living memory....

    ER available between 8am-3pm

    What could be causing the staff shortage?

    According to a report by Radio-Canada , the hospital is critically short on nurses and respiratory therapists, with the latter at only 30 per cent of the level needed.

    Ambulances will be redirected to other hospitals outside of the ER’s opening hours.
