World just as vulnerable to future pandemics after COVID: WHO panel
COVID-19 emerged in 2019, and may actually be in a worse place given the economic toll, according to a review panel set up to evaluate the global response.A lack of progress on reforms such as World Health Organization funding and international health regulations means the world is as vulnerable as ever, the Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response said in its report. Monkeypox cases are now suspected in U.K., Spain, Portugal — here’s what you need to know The report authors, led by former New Zealand prime minister Helen Clark and former president of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, acknowledged some progress, but said the process wasgoing far too slowly.“We have right now the very same tools and the same system that existed in December 2019 to respond to a pandemic threat.And those tools just weren’t good enough,” Clark told reporters.“If there were a new pandemic threat this year, next year, or the year after at least, we will be largely in the same place… maybe worse, given the tight fiscal space of many, if not most, countries right now.”Wednesday’s report from the body set up by the World Health Organization comes ahead of next week’s World Health Assembly in Geneva, the WHO’s annual decision-making forum, which is expected to address some of the issues raised.While the body welcomed some steps forward, including moves to establish a separate global health security fund within the World Bank, it warned that global interest was waning and the years it will take to set up other instruments – including a potential pandemic treaty, an international agreement to improve preparedness – were too long.The panel called for a high-level meeting at the U.N.

Housing affordability in Ontario has eroded faster than any province amid COVID-19: report
Housing affordability in Ontario has eroded at a rate not seen in half a century over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, a new report suggests, while home prices skyrocketed by 44 per cent across Doug Ford’s premiership.The new report by Generation Squeeze found that with current home prices, a new homebuyer would have to work full-time for nearly 22 years to save up enough money for a 20 per cent down payment on a home — up from 15 years in late 2019.“Ontario has just completely lost control of housing,” said Paul Kershaw, an associate professor at the University of British Columbia and the founder of Generation Squeeze, which studies housing affordability and standard of living across Canada.“We’ve never seen anything like this before in any province at any time in the last 50 years.” ‘I’ll never be able to afford property’: Housing costs key issue for Ontario voters The report, citing Canadian Real Estate Association data, found the average price for a home in Ontario rose to $871,688 by 2021, up 44 per cent from the inflation-adjusted price in 2018 — the year Ford was sworn in as premier.Meanwhile, wages have stagnated, particularly for the typical 25-to-34-year-old, which the report argues has led to “lost work” for those trying to save for a down payment.Over the first two years of the pandemic, Kershaw says those young Ontario residents have lost the value of six years of work that would otherwise be put toward home ownership.
