Will it take a COVID-19 vaccine to save our economy?

The COVID-19 pandemic has put public health up against our economy and making the right choice for our health has meant businesses are closed and unemployment has spiked. Dr. Chris McCabe, health economist at the University of Alberta, joins us to talk about the prospect of a vaccine and what it will mean for our economy. Check out this interview where TELUS World of Science Edmonton's Staff Scientist Cate sits down with Dr. McCabe to discuss what life looks like in the meantime, who will be eligible for a vaccine first, and what re-opening our economy looks like in a world post-vaccine.
