Lethbridge MP under fire for spreading ‘misinformation’ about COVID deaths in Alberta


Lethbridge MP Rachael Harder’s sharing of an article on Facebook that says only 10 “otherwise healthy” people have died of COVID-19 in Alberta has triggered angry responses from people who say she is showing a lack of compassion and empathy for all who have died of the disease. The article highlights that all of the rest who died of COVID-19 in the province had pre-existing medical conditions. “I think the big message that it sends is that this member of Parliament really has very little respect for human life,” said Dr. Raj Bhardwaj, an urgent care physician in Calgary. “To say that the real death toll is, you know, double digits is absolutely ludicrous. It’s misinformation,” he said.
